Planners to discuss A Street development

Planning Commissioners will hear reports on a mixed-use development on A Street and Southern Oregon University's Master Plan at their Tuesday meeting.

Ashland residents Louis Plummer and Sidney Brown want to demolish a rental house they own at 426 A St. and build a 3,992-square-foot building.

The new two-story building would feature two condos on the top floor and 1,850 square feet of retail or office space on the bottom floor.

The existing home, which was constructed in 1889, has fallen into disrepair and is not considered to be a contributing resource to the historic Railroad District, according to city documents.

Planning officials are recommending that the commission approve the project, while imposing certain requirements on the development, including demanding that it meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards.

Commissioners will also vote on whether to approve SOU's Master Plan, which outlines development goals for the decade beginning in 2010.

The 7 p.m. meeting will be held in the Council Chambers, 1175 E. Main St.
