The Altum Group is excited to share that on December 6, 2017, the Commercial Choice Trucking (CCT) project was approved by the City of Colton City Council. The project seeks to establish a small 5 truck trucking company on a 15,000 square foot lot in South Colton, and required a Conditional Use Permit, Parcel Map, and a Site Plan Review.

The Project was initially denied by the Planning Commission in September with objections from two neighbors. The CCT project team, including The Altum Group’s Nancy Ferguson, prepared a comprehensive presentation to go with the appeal to the City Council. In October, City Council heard testimony from the project team and City staff and continued the public hearing to provide time for CCT to work with the surrounding neighborhood to resolve their issues and for City staff to prepare a resolution for approval of the project with conditions. The project returned to City Council on December 6 and was approved 6-0 with one councilmember absent. Moreover, after the hearing, the most vocal critics of the project approached the applicant and welcomed him to the neighborhood.
