Caler and others <br />for a change of zone from Zone R-3 to Zone C-3 on property located on the <br />north side of Duarte Road from 745 to 917 West Duarte Road and inquired if <br />anyone desired to speak in opposition to the recommendation of the Planning <br />Commission. <br /> <br />Mr. Henry W. Shatford, 410 South Drake Road, Arcadia, an attorney represent- <br />ing some of the applicants, addressed the Council, displaying photographs <br />of a portion of the area in question which were taken facing the existing <br />business area, including parking lots, a church and certain commercial <br />buildings. He stated in part that the requested zone change covered an <br />area within the radius of an established commercial zone; that after Duarte <br />Road is widened it will not be conducive to the construction of multiple <br />family dwellings in which children would reside; that if not rezoned <br />properly the area will deteriorate in value but that if zoned commercial a <br />business development could be constructed benefiting the entire city; that <br />he does not believe the recommendation of the Planning Commission would be <br />of benefit to both the community and the residents. <br /> <br />In answer to Councilman Camphouse's question as to whether the owners of <br />the property contemplated developing the entire area as a total project or <br />on an individual basis, Mr. Shatford stated in substance that he was not <br />certain but in his own opinion thought that in order to develop the area <br />properly the owners would have to do so jointly. <br /> <br />The following persons also addressed the Council in opposition to Planning <br />Commission's recommendation and requested consideration: <br /> <br />Mrs. Basil G. Carmack, residing at 805 West Duarte Road <br />Mrs. James C. Greer, residing at 901 West Duarte Road <br />Mrs. Miriam H. Brainard, residing at 819 Duarte Road <br /> <br />The accessibility of Duarte Road from all portions of the area was cited; <br />the growth of Southern California and the need for business sections for <br />developments euch as professional insurance type buildings, medical build- <br />ings, etc. was discussed. <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />3-15- 60 <br /> <br />*0,/\ <br />
