Agenda: Hollister planners to review proposed medical facility

Hollister planning commissioners this week will consider a site and architectural review for a 9,000 square-foot medical facility in the new Hollister Farms commercial development.

That is among the items on the agenda for the meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday at Hollister City Hall, 375 Fifth St.

The agenda or related documents do not specify the type of medical facility planned on 1.15 acres in the development west of the Highway 25 bypass and north of Tres Pinos Road. It is being proposed by Brandon Whallon and Hawkins Companies, which is the Hollister Farms developer. Whallon is listed as a land-use planner for Hawkins Companies.

With environmental considerations on the project, a mitigated negative declaration is expected as opposed to a more expansive full environmental impact review, according to the agenda.

Neither Whallon nor planning official Abraham Prado could not be reached immediately for further details on the medical facility.

In other items on the agenda for Thursday, the commission will consider:

  • Recommendations on the boat and RV ordinance in light of debate over whether those vehicles should be allowed in driveways
  • A site and architectural review for Signs By Van and applicant Jeremy Vanderkraats for a free-standing, multi-tenant sign in an existing shopping center at two locations, 341 and 351 Tres Pinos Road
  • Various amendments to the municipal code on various matters, including but not limited to vehicle sales and residential densities in the downtown district, along with building sign requirements
  • Selection of the second planning commissioner to serve on the General Plan Advisory Committee
