Bisno’s Tower gets approved – and massage parlors are back!

There were a couple of interesting developments at the Santa Ana Planning Commission last night.  Developer Robert Bisno’s proposed luxury condo tower was approved.  But the fight is not over – we can now appeal to the Santa Ana City Council.  And the Planning Commission changed the laws regarding massage parlors.  I think they will be able to open up now in our city, with a CUP.

I will get more details on the massage parlor ordinance later on this week. 

As for the tower, it was opposed by Councilwoman Michele Martinez’ commissioner, Patrick Yrarrazaval.  New commissioner Mario Turner abstained.  The rest of the commissioners voted yes, despite traffic concerns that Bisno’s own hack acknowledged.

I could not be there last night, due to a trip I had to undertake.  However I plan to appeal the tower decision to the City Council.  Frankly, I don’t see this tower ever being built.  I think Bisno is trying to sell the land.
