Final review and approval of Nicora Place, an 18-unit, single-family housing development, is set for a special meeting of the Sonoma Planning Commission Thursday. The group meets at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room, 177 First St. W.
The project, located on a two-acre site at 821-845 W. Spain St., comes back with one less unit after facing neighborhood objections. It was last presented to the Commission 15 months ago. Developer is Steve Ledson, who has built many housing units in the city and the Valley.
Ledson proposes two-story homes, each with three bedrooms and a minimum of two baths. Four unit types will have 11 different elevation
concepts drawn from Victorian, Farmhouse, Craftsman and French architectural styles. Each home would be approximately 1,200 to 1,500 square feet on individual lots with attached garages. The homes are arranged around a U-shaped private street with a park in the center. The site was created by combining two long parcels to form a square.
Sonoma Gardens, a 12-unit condominium complex with one and two story units, flanks the project on the West. A driveway and several single story units within Sonoma Park Condominiums border the property on the East. Approximately 11 older housing units on the site are proposed to be removed.
