In a special meeting on Thursday, the Crescent City Planning Commission will consider a use permit to allow renovation work at the wastewater treatment plant in Beachfront Park. The meeting starts 5:30 p.m. at the Cultural Center on Front Street.

The project to upgrade the plant, located in Beachfront Park and in part of the state's coastal zone, requires permits from the city and California Coastal Commission.

Conditions could require fences and traffic plans to keep the section of the park near the plant open to the public.
