Rev. Magr. Gerald M. O'Keefe, <br />Pastor of the Church of the Holy Angels. <br /> <br />Mayor Balser led in the pledge of allegiance to the flag. <br /> <br />PRESENT : <br />ABSENT : <br /> <br />Councilmen Butterworth, Camphouse, Reibold, Phillips, Balser <br />None <br /> <br />MOTION by Councilman Phillips, seconded by Councilman Butterworth and <br />carried unanimously that the minutes of the Regular Meeting of January <br />2, 1962 be approved as submitted in writing. <br />. <br />, <br /> <br />Planning Commission Resolution No. 407 recommending the denial of a zone <br />variance for the erection and operation of a gasoline service station <br />at the northwest corner of Duarte Road and Golden West Avenue. <br /> <br />The City Clerk read a communication dated January 13, 1962 from Mrs. <br />Maxine Gage, 850 Arcadia Avenue, which stated in substance that she <br />favored the recommendation of the Planning Commission; that she was not <br />aware that the applicants desired the variance for the erection of a <br />service station on their property and would not have signed the petition <br />had she been so aware; that a service station would adversely affect <br />property values in the area. <br /> <br />INDEXED Mayor Balser then declared the hearing open on the application of James C. <br />Greer and Ora Reed Greer for a zone variance to permit the erection and <br />operation of a gasoline service station on property at the northwest <br />corner of Duarte Road and Golden West Avenue, and inquired if anyone <br />desired to address the Council in favor of the granting of the requested <br />zone varianceo <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Mr. Fred Howser, 49 East Foothill Boulevard, attorney representing the <br />applicants, addressed the Council, stating in part that a misunderstanding <br />had arisen as to the purpose of the requested variance; that although the <br />signers of the application might have assumed that the application was for <br />C-2 or C-3 zone change rather than a zone variance for a service station, <br />it had always been the applicants' intention to place upon their property <br />a Richfield service station; that he was responsible for the wording of <br />the application, which does not mention a service station, but that this <br />was not done for the purpose of misleading anyone. <br /> <br />Mr. Howser continued, stating in part that the protestants at the Planning <br />Commission hearing represented only two parcels of property within the <br />300 foot radius of applicants' property; that the applicants could not see <br />where the area would be adversely affected by the construction of a service <br />station on the subject property and that the protestants would not be able <br />to see the proposed service station from the location of their properties. <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />1-16-62 <br />
