Plans for construction of a retail park at the southeast corner of North First Street and Vaughn Road are expected to top discussion tonight when the Dixon Planning Commission meets.

City staff is recommending the commission approve a conditional use permit to allow the Dixon Retail Park, formerly the Panattoni Commercial Center, to be built at the site. The park would accommodate 22 different businesses.

In other action, a public hearing is scheduled for general plan and zoning amendments for a project dubbed "The Courts," consisting of five parcels at the northeast corner of Stratford Avenue and North Lincoln Street.

The commission is being asked to consider:

• adopting a negative declaration relating to the proposed general plan amendment and rezoning;

• a general plan amendment to change the land-use designation and rezoning from Professional/Administrative Offices to Neighborhood Commercial; and

• amending the existing planned unit development to limit the permitted uses in the Neighborhood Commercial Zone.

In other action, city staff has recommended that the commission approve a design review for an addition to the Blood Bank Warehouse - an item postponed from December's meeting since the applicant was not present and commissioners still had questions about the project.

A staff report explained that Stanley and Edgar Mertz are proposing to construct a 2,400-square-foot addition to expand the existing animal blood bank business.

The Planning Commission meets at 7 p.m. in the Council Chamber, 600 East A St.
