Gi1b <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Gi1b, Margett, Pellegrino, Sae1id, Parry <br />None <br /> <br />(See Page 7) <br /> <br />APPEAL from Planning Commission's denial of a request to create two <br />locs from one lot at 622 W. Norman Avenue. Staff advised that the <br />application filed by Kareem Nikoui proposed to split the existing <br />lot into two lots - 65' wide and 66.4' respectively. The Commission <br />did feel that the proposed lot widths would be consistent with the <br />neighboring properties however it noted that those lots were sub- <br />divided according to the standards applicable at the time that <br />particular division was made and it would not be appropriate to <br />create new lots which do not comply with the current lot width <br />standards - to approve such a division would set a precedent for <br />similar lot splits. It was noted that in 1975 the Planning Commission <br />and the City Council denied a similar request for a substandard lot <br />by division at 633 W. Norman Avenue (across the street from the <br />subject site). Alternative developments were submitted which <br />could be combined with the two lots adjacent to 622 W. Norman Avenue, <br />however, this has not been pursued by the applicant. <br /> <br />Mayor Parry declared the hearing open and the applicant referred to <br />the contents of his letter of appeal and said in part that he had <br />contacted the neighbors and they were all in favor of his proposal; <br />that the lot split would have dimensions consistent with others in <br />the immediate area. He also advised that the development of a <br />cu1-de-sac,which had been suggested by Council, is not possible as <br />the owners are not willing to participate. He felt this would be <br />the best use of the land. <br /> <br />Mrs. Johanna Hofer, 875 Monte Verde Drive, suggested that in this <br />type of case the applicant obtain signatures of those in the <br />neighborhood. She felt the request is reasonable. Mrs. Hofer was <br />advised that the applicant has obtained the signatures of the <br />adjacent property owners. <br /> <br />Michael D'Agata, 633 W. Norman Avenue said he was not happy when his <br />application for a lot split was denied in 1975, but that he would <br />like to see the lot split before Council at this time approved as <br />long as the applicant would construct two new homes.. that it would <br />improve the area. <br /> <br />No one else desiring to be heard the hearing was CLOSED on MOTION by <br />Councilman Margett, seconded by Councilman Gi1b and carried unani- <br />mously, <br /> <br />12-l9-7P. <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
