Planning Commission: Design Awards, Bike Pedestrian Plan, Many Applications

On Monday, March 10, 2014, the Piedmont Planning Commission will host a reception at 5 p.m. in the City Hall Courtyard, 120 Vista Avenue, in front of City Hall.  The reception honors Piedmont Design Award winners and their architects, engineers, contractors and neighbors.

The Design Awards Ceremony for projects completed in 2013 begins at  5:45 p.m. in the Council Chambers. This year, six Piedmont homeowners, along with their design and construction professionals will be recognized for the excellence in design of their projects.

Thomas W. Reese III  – 21 Pacific Avenue  – Excellent Garage

Bill and Carla Newell – 211 Lafayette – Excellent Garage remodel and Addition

Burr Nash and Lisa Rasmussen – 304 Pala Avenue – Excellent Seamless Expansion

Scott Cauchois and Karen Notsund – 320 Wildwood Avenue – Excellent Bay Friendly Landscape

John Lambert and Helen Potter – 104 Dracena Avenue – Excellent Minor Addition

Rajeev and Shiela Bhatia – 100 St. James Drive –  Excellent Upper Level Addition

“The Planning Commission selects the award recipients from the list of projects that received a final inspection following the completion of construction each year. The Commission typically acknowledges both large and small projects, and often something specific that was done very well, such as an addition that was so seamlessly designed and constructed, that it cannot be distinguished from the original construction. Consequently, the categories change a little each year, and the number of awards also varies.”  Kate Black, Piedmont City Planner

At 6:00 p.m. the regular Planning Commission Session will begin with a discussion and consideration of the February 24 workshop on the Bike and Pedestrian Plan.

The agenda also includes 10 planning proposals to be considered by the Commission.
