Stanley Hunt, Arcadia Christian Church <br /> <br />Mayor C. Robert Arth <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: ' <br /> <br />Butterworth, Considine, Hage, Helms, Arth <br />None <br /> <br />The Minutes of the Regular Meeting of September 2, 1969, were APPROVED <br />on MOTION by Councilman Hage, seconded by Coun~ilman Considine and <br />carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Appeal filed by Dale L, Ingram on behalf of owners of property at <br />141 and 143 W. Colorado Boulevard from the decision of the Planning <br />Commission in its denial of their application for a zone change from <br />R-l to R-3 on said property. <br /> <br />The Planning Director summarized the Commission's findings: that the <br />proposed change is not consistent with good zoning practice; that <br />the property is capable of being developed with single family dwellings; <br />that there is adequate property within the City zoned R-3; that the <br />Santa Fe Railroad right-of-way is elevated and shields the subject <br />property from any influence of R-3 property and on the northeasterly <br />side of the right-of-way; all other property adjacent to the subject <br />property on the southerly side of the right-of-way is zoned R-l and <br />that an R-3 use of the property would be an undesirable intrusion into <br />a single family residential area. <br /> <br />Mayor Arth declared the hearing open and Dale L. Ingram, acting as <br />agent and consultant for the two owners, explored in detail the <br />topography of the land, the footage on all boundaries of the <br />triangularly shaped property. One parcel has been unimproved for <br />many years whereas the Division of Highways recently acquired by <br />condemnation the railroad access strip from the other parcel <br />necessitating the removal of an existing duplex building therefrom. <br />With reference to the railroad he felt that th~ noise and dust <br />generating therefrom makes the property unsuitable for R-l use, <br />whereas with R-3 it is possible to screen out such problems. He <br />noted the adjacent zoning and stated in part that rezoning the subject <br />property to R-3 would not be detrimental to the single family dwellings <br />in that it is buffered from the rear yard of properties facing San Luis <br />Rey Road by the 25' railroad access road. He continued by explaining <br />setbacks, location of carports, recreation facilities, architectural <br />aspects and noted revenue which would be forthcoming from the proposed <br />development. He asked for the opportunity to demonstrate ability and <br />willingness to construct an apartment complex which would be an asset <br />to the city. <br /> <br />Speaking in opposition: Fred Fowler, 512 San Luis Rey Road, stated in <br />part that he represented some of the residents in the so-called Santa <br />Anita Gardens adjacent to the subject properties who objected to the <br /> <br />9-16-69 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
