Jincluding a requirement that a covenant be recorded restricting the <br />~_J.IL~~structure to an accessory use (kitchen facilities not to be installed <br />ff~- and not used for rental purposes). Said covenant has been recorded <br />although the property owner did not follow through on the approval, <br />and the permit has now elapsed.

He pointed out that it was <br />always the intent to build such an addition; that all utilities are <br />stubbed in, the garage has a flat roof (sub-floor), and the nearest <br />structure is 50' away; that the building would be attractive and that <br />his neighbors have not expressed any objection. In answer to an <br />inquity by Councilman Forman, he stated that he would be willing to <br />remove or demolish the building should it become necessary by any <br />development which might go in at the rear of the property. <br /> <br />No one else desiring to be heard the hearing was CLOSED on MOTION by <br />Councilman Forman, seconded by Councilman Turner and c~rried <br />unanimously. <br /> <br />Councilman Turner stated in part that in most instances the City <br />Council has endeavored to justify and understand the basis for the <br />actions of the Modification Committee and the Planning Commission <br />insofar as they apply to the overall general planning of the City; <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />3-1-66 <br />
