The project proposal, Lillian Commons (also referred to as Juan Hernandez - MH Medical Properties), includes a request for a General Plan Amendment (GPA2019-0005), Zoning Amendment and Planned Development Master Plan (ZA2019-0016), and Tentative Parcel Map (SD2019-0007). Development of the site would include construction of the following: a 4,500 square foot urgent care facility; a 10,000 square foot medical building; a 100,000 square foot medical office/hospital with 55 beds; a three-story parking garage with 500 spaces; a 10,000 square foot commercial retail/restaurant building; and a maximum 200-unit multi-family residential development.
On November 4, 2020, the City Council reviewed the Lillian Commons project including a medical campus including a hospital, medical offices, related commercial, and up to 150 units of housing.
After reviewing the applicant's request for a General Plan change from Commercial to Mixed-Use Flex and the creation of a Planned Development zoning district and associated Master Plan, the Council voted to approve the project incorporating the Planning Commission recommendations of limiting housing to only the northern portion of the site (parcel C) and requiring medical uses on the remainder of the site, and added a requirement to the ordinance to delay housing development on the northern portion of the site until progress towards a medical campus/hospital is achieved.
City Council Approvals
