Ponderosa said it is acquiring the 2.1-acre parcel that was part of an estate left to a Lutheran Church foundation by the late Jerry Wagner, who owned the trailer park. The house, which is occupied, is on the church-owned property and not part of Ponderosa's acquisition or responsibility, Ponderosa's president Jeff Schroeder told the commission.
At one time, however, Ponderosa planned to include the old house lot in its plans and would have built 14 homes. After analysts examined the house and the cost of restoring it, demolishing it or moving it, Ponderosa reduced its development plan to 12 homes and excluded the lot from its plans.
At Tuesday's meeting, the planning staff is expected to review in detail for the council the options for the site, including Ponderosa's plan for the 12 homes, along with demolishing the old house or restoring it and at whose expense.
The public hearing will start at 7 p.m. in the City Council chambers in the Civic Center, 200 Old Bernal Ave.
