After five Planning Commission meetings and two Newport Beach City Council hearings, plans for the Aerie, a clutch of luxury condos on a coastal bluff in Corona del Mar that have divided neighbors, are headed back to the council for a third time tonight. A few residents have formed a group called Residents for Responsible Development to oppose the development. The group’s website, www.rfrd.info, includes a petition to stop the project. Some residents believe the project, slated to take the place of a run-down apartment building and house, will benefit the neighborhood.

The California Coastal Commission on Wednesday rejected plans for a clutch of luxury condominiums on a coastal bluff in Corona del Mar. The commission voted 5 to 7 against Aerie’s proposed 61,700-square-foot project on Carnation Avenue. The project narrowly won approval from the Newport Beach City Council in July, by a 4-2 vote. Some residents from the surrounding neighborhood opposed the project on the grounds that it was too big. Plans for the eight luxury condominiums include private decks and pools for each unit and an elevator to take cars to underground levels.

Another rehabilitative recovery center is in the works on the Balboa Peninsula, and some locals aren't too happy about it. The owner of an apartment building in the 1500 block of West Balboa Boulevard in Newport Beach is applying for a license that would transform the building into a recovery center for drug and alcohol abusers. If licensed by the state, the facility will become the 10th licensed recovery center on the peninsula ? and residents say that's too many. The proposed rehab facility is one block from Newport Elementary School and near a playground and Girl Scout meeting facility.

Issues concerning the Aerie project were aired Tuesday night with advocates and opponents making their cases in a public hearing that lasted about three and a half hours.
