Parry <br /> <br />11 <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT : <br /> <br />Councilmen Gilb, Parry, Pellegrino, Saelid, Margett <br />None <br /> <br />On MOTION by Councilman Gilb, seconded by Councilman Parry and <br />carried unanimously the minutes of the adjourned regular meeting <br />and the minutes of the regular meeting of December 4, 1979 were <br />APPROVED. <br /> <br />Appeal to the Planning Commission's denial of tentative Parcel Map <br />79-14. The application was for a lot split to create four lots from <br />two lots for the purpose of constructing two new single-family dwell- <br />ings and to resolve an illegal division of land involving 39 West <br />Palm Drive and 2311/2307 Palm Circle. With this modification the <br />division of land would then comply with the standards set forth in <br />the subdivision ordinance and the proposed purpose is consistent with <br />the zoning regulations. <br /> <br />, . <br /> <br />The Planning Commission denied this parcel map on the basis that the <br />lot split did not meet the subdivision requirements. The illegal lot <br />split was brought about in 1963 and 39 Palm Drive (Lot No.4) was <br />divided into two parcels and the front parcel has changed ownership <br />several times. The application for the lot split involved 45 Palm <br />Drive, the northerly portion of 39 Palm Drive which is sometimes <br />referred to as 2311/2307 Palm Circle. The Planning Department has <br />recommended approval subject to specified conditions. <br /> <br />Mayor Margett declared the hearing open and the applicant, Mike <br />DeFilipi, residing at 165 Walnut Avenue, explained how the illegal lot <br />split was discovered and that his original plan was to build two houses, <br />However, he is now facing the problem of the undersized corner lot <br />(39 W. Palm Drive). He asked the Council to approve his application. <br /> <br />Bob Kreisberg, 20 W. Birchcroft, felt that the proposal is the highest <br />and best use for the property in question and said it is an eyesore in <br />its present condition - due to the constant collection of debris. He <br />also felt it would improve the neighborhood. <br /> <br />Richard Binkley, 86 Birchcroft, also noted the problem of weeds, etc., <br />and regardless of whether or not there is a legal or illegal lot at <br />the corner the proposed use would be the best for the area. <br /> <br />Joseph Klimberg, 51 Birchcroft, said in part that the subject property <br />is nothing but an eyesore and asked Council to approve the lot split. <br /> <br />Frank Bush, 60 Birchcroft, also said the lot in question has not been <br />maintained except when the City has sent crews to clean it. He noted <br />the growth of weeds and felt the entire neighborhood would benefit if <br />this were approved. <br /> <br />Milt Bade, 63 Birchcroft, gave a resume of the ownership of the subject <br /> <br />-1- <br /> <br />12-18-79 <br />
