Once more, with feeling!

The developer of a proposed hotel at McBean Parkway and Valencia Boulevard gets another shot before the Santa Clarita Planning Commission on Tuesday night after his previous designs were deemed by commission members as “rather plain,” and not worthy of one of the city’s showcase intersections.

Developer Hunter Oliver’s proposal was held over at the commission’s Oct. 4 meeting, and he was told to make various aesthetic improvements.

Oliver’s attorney said last month that such changes were in the works.

The commission did not have issues with the overall scope of the project — five-stories and 134 rooms, plus a free-standing restaurant on the site of the old Greens miniature golf course.

The Planning Commission meeting is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Council Chambers of City Hall.
