The Newport Beach Planning Commission plans to discuss the proposed Banning Ranch development during four study sessions in January and February.
Open to the public, the meetings are intended to give commissioners and members of the public the chance to discuss and ask questions about the Banning Ranch plans. The informal study sessions are preludes to official public hearings, which are slated to begin in March.
Each study session will cover a certain aspect of the development:
•4:30 to 6 p.m. Jan. 19, subdivision design and circulation;
•4:30 to 6 p.m. Feb. 9, open space, parks, and trails;
•5 to 6:30 p.m. Feb. 23, land use, development regulations, and architectural guidelines;
•7 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 23, draft environmental impact report.
All sessions will be in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 3300 Newport Blvd.
