The Garden Grove Journal “Harbor, apartments on GG agenda”

Bruce Broadwater will wield the gavel as mayor for his first full meeting of his new term when the Garden Grove City Council convenes Tuesday evening.

The agenda looks fairly light, although there are several noteworthy items. In a study session in the Founders’ Room in the Community Meeting Center at 5:30 p.m., the subject of Harbor Boulevard improvements will be considered.

Harbor Boulevard is at the center of Garden Grove’s efforts to create a tourism-entertainment corridor called “International West.”  Harbor is already home to nearly a dozen mid- to high-rise hotels as well as several new chain restaurants, but city leaders are hoping to extend a lively thoroughfare of entertainment venues, hotels and more from the Anaheim city limit all the way to Westminster Avenue.

Part of the re-branding process could include improvements on Harbor such as attractive themed signage, landscaping and synchronized traffic signals.

The regular open session of the city council will begin at 6:30 p.m.

A public hearing is scheduled on a proposal by Brandywine Homes to construct an apartment complex at 14051 and 14061 Hope St.

Also on the agenda are appointments to various public agencies, boards, commissions and committees.

The city council meets at the CMC at 11300 Stanford Ave.
