Board Urges Vice Mayor to Develop Wrigley Village Plan

At a City Council Meeting in 2018, Vice Mayor Andrews promised he would develop a Wrigley Village Plan concerning development and rezoning the area commonly known as the Pacific Ave Business Corridor in Wrigley. Now that proposals for major development and rezoning are starting to make their way through the Planning Department, we are calling on the Vice Mayor to develop the Wrigley Village Plan before any development or rezoning gets approved. Read our letter to the Vice Mayor below.

Board Releases Statement Regarding 201 W PCH

The Wrigley Association Board met with JR van Dijs, Inc. in July 2020 regarding their proposed development and zoning change of the property located at 201 W PCH.  While we do not oppose the development outright, we do have concerns regarding the details of their proposal.  As a result, we have put together a statement outlining our concerns and have forwarded them to the appropriate Planning officer, Alexis Oropeza.  To read our statement, please click "View Statement" below.
