The matter had been continued from the February <br />17 meeting at which time Council had asked that the parties involved <br />in the division of property be present at this time in an effort to <br />ascertain what if anything the Council could do to alleviate a <br />situation which pertains to an illegal lot split at said address. <br /> <br />f).-ld)).IFor recall purposes the Planning Director explored the background <br />c7 of the subject matter and projected diagrams and maps indicating <br />present lot lines. He stated in part that rather than impose a <br />division of property which would be acceptable to the commission but <br />not to the property owners, the Commission voted to deny the applica- <br />tion without pr~judice when it became obvious that the parties could <br />not o~ would not get together. That the Commission felt it could not <br />in good conscience approve an illegal lot split as such action could <br />have wide spread implications affecting the entire city in its future <br />growth pattern.

He explained what he and his partners would be willing to <br />do which included an easement for the sign Mrs. Friedman had wanted, that <br />under this arrangement the parking problem would also be improved. <br /> <br />Mrs. Friedman,11317 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, applicant for the <br />lot split, delineated her property on the map, discussed the location <br />of the requested lot split, the parking and her desire to have aCCeSS <br />to Duarte Road. . <br /> <br />3-17-70 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br /> <br />.. <br />
