Development Application for The Sensory Palace.

The Sensory Palace is at 1471 Vinnell, between KFC and Chapala, west of Walmart.

The development application is to add a preschool service. The Sensory Palace is a gym for children with special needs.

The owner is hosting a neighborhood meeting at 6:00pm on May 5 at 1471 Vinnell.

This is a nice, and a logical, extension to what is already there. I did not realize that these things require a neighborhood meeting until I got the notice. I can’t imagine why anyone would object. Maybe people should go to the meeting to congratulate the owner.

Murio Farms Specific Plan District

Here is what I learned at the neighborhood meeting.

The first step is annexation, and that is the primary reason for the meeting. The matter, annexation only, will go before the P&Z perhaps as soon as next month. There will be a traffic analysis with the application. (Currently not complete, but it will be public record prior to the P&Z hearing.) The development plan is in the concept phase, meaning everything is subject to change. Detailed planning will start after the annexation approval.

Conditional use permit for 6335 W Victory

The conditional use is for adding an impound lot next to a pre-owned vehicle lot.

The property owner is hosting a neighborhood meeting at 6:00pm on April 26, 2021 at 6335 W Victory.

I do not see how this affects anyone. There are no homes near the property, and the property in under the airport flight path. Still, the owner is holding a meeting if anyone it interested. (Neighborhood meetings are required by city code.)
