Godfrey <br />in appreciation of their contribution to the City while serving on the <br />Personnel Board and the Planning Commission respectively. Mr. Lillicrop <br />is leaving the city and Mr. Godfrey has been appointed to the Personnel <br />Board. <br /> <br />This matter continued from the regular meeting of August 5, 1969. Appeal <br />filed by Robert F. Kleckner from the decision of the Planning Commission <br />in its denial of his application for a conditional use permit for the <br />remodeling of facilities at 218 E. Huntington Drive. <br /> <br />The Planning Director summarized in part as follows: that the Commission <br />had initially denied the application as it felt the request was too far <br />from compliance with the Municipal Code; that the reasons therefor were <br />listed in its Resolution No. 677 ( on file in the Planning Department and <br />in the office of the City Clerk). However, the Planning Department staff <br />had recommended approval subject to conditions set forth by the Director <br />of Public Works and placed further conditions which would bring it as near <br />to code requirements as possible including the removal of the asphalt and <br />replacement with concrete on Huntington Drive; but waived the surface <br />drainage controls and the underground utilities. He commented that the <br />light standards, although above the minimum requirements, could remain. <br /> <br />The Hearing remaining open the applicant stated in part that he had been <br />uninformed concerning certain regulations at the time he filed his appli- <br />cation and recited the areas in which he could comply; he would screen <br />the restrooms and the storage area, but to replace the asphalt paving <br />(sidewalk and curb) with concrete would be so costly, especially inasmuch <br />as he looks to the day when he can rebuild the entire facility. He intends <br />to spend close to $5000 for the requested improvements; that during the <br />last few days he has discussed the matter with the Director of Public Works. <br /> <br />It was noted that the position of the City has changed and it is now <br />willing to withdraw the requirements relating to street side landscaping, <br />underground utility installation and the height of the light standards. <br />The main problem being the sidewalk and the apron. Extensive discussion <br />held On those items with the applicant reiterating his objections and <br />hesitancy about expending that amount of money at the present time. <br /> <br />8-19-69 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
