<br />CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS ARE TAPE RECORDED AND ON FILE IN THE OFFICE OF THE CITY CLERK <br /> <br />Appeal of Mrs. Paul R. Whittington for the deletion of one of the <br />conditions of Planning Commission approval of her application for <br />division of property at 1050 Rancho Road. Said condition, No. 13, <br />requires a covenant enforceable by the city in a form meeting the <br />approval of the City Attorney and recorded restricting the further <br />division of parcels 1 and 2. Reasons for her appeal were set forth <br />in a communication dated July 29 and on file in the office of the <br />~City Clerk. <br /> <br />A1(( t.;~ ,LThe Planning Director summarized the findings of the Commission and <br />a-~' ~IA commented that in his opinion the Commission would not have approved <br />jI .II S;~~' the property division without the imposition of the subject condition. <br /> <br />~ Mayor Hage then declared the hearing open and Fred G. Kennedy, <br />attorney, made a presentation on behalf of Mrs. Whittington. He noted <br />elevations, location of the swimming pool, and the size of adjacent <br />lots with which the property if divided as requested by Mrs. Whittington <br />would conform. He stated in part that the required covenant would place <br />a cloud on the property which could not be removed in the future; that <br />in his opinion any potential buyer of the property would fully check <br />with the city prior to consummating a transaction; that one cannot <br />say what will happen to the area in the future what with the advent <br />of the freeway for instance. He felt that as conditions change the <br />Planning Commission at that time should look at the facts as they exist <br />then. He asked for the removal of the requirement as it would be a <br />hardship on the present owner and on any contemplated sale. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />INVOCATION <br /> <br />PLEDGE OF <br />ALLEGIANCE <br /> <br />ROLL CALL <br /> <br />MINUTE <br />APPROVAL <br /> <br />CONSIDrNE <br />EXCUSED <br /> <br />HEARING <br /> <br />(Whittington <br />Appeal) <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Hearing <br />Closed <br /> <br />18:7327 <br /> <br />M I NUT E S <br /> <br />CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ARCADIA <br /> <br />REGULAR MEETING <br /> <br />AUGUST 20, 1968 <br /> <br />The City Council of the City of Arcadia, California, met in regular <br />session in the Council Chamber of the Arcadia City Hall on August 20, <br />1968, at 8:00 P.Mo <br /> <br />Mayor Don W.
