Stogsdill for a change of zone from R-l to <br />C-2, PR-3 and D on property near the southeast corner of Las Tunas Drive <br />and Baldwin Avenue; that said recommendation was appealed by applicants. <br /> <br />In answer to Mayor Reibold's question as to whether any written protests <br />had been received, the City Clerk read in full a communication received <br />from Everett D. Weir, 480 Workman Avenue, protesting the requested zone <br />change, which stated in part that spot rezoning tends to lower property <br />values, that if rezoning is necessary the entire area from Baldwin Avenue <br />on the west to Bradford Avenue on the east, and from Las Tunas Drive on <br />the north to Live Oak Avenue on the south should be included in the rezon- <br />ing; and that with the present number of vacancies in Temple City and the <br />abundance of markets existing in the area this rezoning is not necessary <br />or desirable at this time. <br /> <br />The City Clerk added that she had received that evening a petition with <br />nine signatures of property owners which she had been requested to add <br />to the petition containing 77 signatures previously presented to the <br />Planning Commission and are protests filed after the matter was presented <br />to the Council and set for hearing; that the Planning Commission files <br />show protests filed, both oral and written. <br /> <br />Mayor Reibold then declared the hearing open and inquired if anyone <br />desired to speak in opposition to the granting of the requested zone <br />change. <br /> <br />The following persons addressed the Council, stating in part that they were <br />opposed to the granting of the requested zone change because the proposed <br />construction of a super-market on the corner of Las Tunas Drive and <br />Baldwin Avenue would result in additional traffic at an intersection that <br />carries an unusually heavy load of traffic during the racing season; that <br />there is- no need for another market in that area since there is a new <br />shopping area to be constructed on Santa Anita and Live Oak Avenues and <br />already established shopping centers in West Arcadia and other near-by <br />locations; and that the' immediate surrounding area is residential and will <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />9-15-59 <br />
