Pasadena City Hearing Officer Alex Garcia will consider on Wednesday, June 15 the Conditional Use Permit application for minor renovations proposed for the St. Philip the Apostle Parish complex located at 83 South Hill Avenue.

The renovations would include the construction of a new entrance patio, attached canopies, and interior and exterior renovation of the parish center that includes a 56 square-foot addition in floor area.

Renovations with no additional floor area are allowed under the parish’s Master Plan adopted by the City Council in 2005.

Since the project includes interior and exterior renovations of the building that would result in an addition of 56 square feet of floor area, a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) is required.

The Planning and Community Development Department is recommending the approval of the CUP.

Its report stated that based on assessment, the findings to approve the CUP can be made.

The department also said the project is consistent with the city’s General Plan.

“The proposed renovation of the parish center building would support a long-standing educational and religious institution, thus is in conformance with the goals, policies and objectives of the General Plan,” the Planning and Community Development Department’s  report stated.

The public hearing takes place at 5:30 p.m. Members of the public can access the meeting through:
