Robert Arth <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Considine, Hage, Helms, Arth <br />Councilman Butterworth <br /> <br />On request and ~OTION of Councilman Helms the minutes of the regular <br />meeting of January 6, 1970 (page 3) were AMENDED to reflect the waiving <br />of the full reading and the introduction of Ordinance No. 1407 as <br />accomplished in one official action. Motion seconded by Councilman Hage <br />and carried unanimously. The minutes were then APPROVED AS AMENDED on <br />MOTION by Councilman Helms, seconded by Councilman Hage and carried <br />unanimously. <br /> <br />Appeal filed by Jack L. Wadsworth from the decision of the Planning <br />Commission in its denial of his request for permission to add to an <br />existing accessory building at 264 W. Pamela Road for a storage <br />facility (collection of antique automobiles and motorcycles). <br /> <br />The Planning Director indicated on projecturals the location of the <br />proposed addition and stated in part that if the building were per- <br />mitted it would occupy approximately 80 percent of the required rear <br />yard; that the existing building occupies 65 percent of the required <br />rear yard. He added that the Commission felt a new building would <br />fail to preserve open space, it would reduce the rear yard and the <br />subject residen~i~l area would fall into a semi-storage category. The <br />request had been denied by the Commission. <br /> <br />Mayor Arth then declared the hearing open and Mrs. Jack L. Wadsworth <br />was informed that Ordinance No. 1406 (adopted December 16, 1969) is <br />now in effect, its requirements were explored with which the subject <br />request does not comply. Mrs. Wadsworth commented that they would <br />prefer to construct an addition to the existing accessory building <br />rather than to have the residence and accessory buildings follow <br />around the entire lot line; that they have endeavored to maintain a <br />parklike atmosphere and asked permission to proceed with the additional <br />structure. <br /> <br />No one else desiring to be heard the hearing was CLOSED on MOTION by <br />Councilman Consiqine, seconded by Councilman Hage and carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Councilman Considine made observations concerning the right of a homeowner <br />to have hobbies, such as the collection of cars, and being able to store <br />them on his own property. Following further discussion and clarification <br />by the City Attorney as to the issue before Council at this time, it was <br />MOVED by Councilman Helms, seconded by Councilman Hage and carried on <br />roll call vote as follows, that the action of the Planning Commission be <br />SUSTAINED and that the appeal be and it is hereby DENIED. <br /> <br />AYES: <br />NOES: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Rage, Helms, Arth <br />Councilman Considine <br />Councilman Butterworth <br /> <br />1-20-70 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
