J. Davis Barnard, Pastor of the Arcadia Presbyterian Church <br /> <br />Mayor George L. Forman <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Arth, Butterworth, Considine, Hage, Forman <br />None <br /> <br />The Minutes of the regular meeting of July 19, 1966 were APPROVED <br />as submitted in writing on MOTION by Councilman Considine, seconded <br />by Councilman Hage and unanimously carried. <br /> <br />On July 5 the APPEAL from the decision of the Planning Commission <br />(Res. No. 590) in its denial of the application for a conditional use <br />permit to allow property at 901 W. Duarte Road to be used as a <br />service station was before the City Council. On request of the <br />applicant, Harbor Service Stations, Inc., the matter was continued to <br />this date. The Planning Director explained the basis upon which the <br />Planning Commission denied the requested permit: that the property <br />is in Zone R-3; that though the property to the southeast is <br />developed with a shopping center and that to the south with com- <br />mercial uses, the property to the north of Duarte Road on both sides <br />of Golden West Avenue is in Zone R-3 and developed with a mixture of <br />single family residences and apartments. He continued that in a <br />recent study a land use plan for the subject area was prepared which <br />made no provision for increased commercial zoning north of Duarte <br />Road and which firmly established the boundaries and limited the <br />expansion to a specific area; there is no commercial zoning or uses <br />on the north side of Duarte Road from the westerly City limits to the <br />C-2-D zoning in the middle of the block east of the block in which <br />the subject property is located; that to grant the conditional use <br />permit would constitute spot zoning which would be injurious to <br />adjacent properties and improvements being adverse to the compre- <br />hensive general plan. <br /> <br />Roy M. Robinson, representing the Harbor Service Stations, Inc., read <br />a report which was also distributed to the City Council (on file in <br />the office of the City Clerk). The report outlined existing <br />commercial development across the street from the subject property <br />consisting of a service station and a liquor store, with a new <br />Sho pping Center development on another corner. Mr. Robinson <br />referred to the amount of traffic at the intersection and the proposed <br />signalization at the subject corner. He stressed the residential <br />design of the proposed facility and the revenue which the City would <br />derive. He submitted figures for estimated increase in vehicular <br />traffic and population as compiled by the State Board of Equalization <br />and the Department of Commerce. In conclusion the City Council was <br />urged to grant the request. <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />8- 2- 66 <br />
