<br />HEARING <br />(Zon ing <br />Ordinance <br />Amendments <br />Continued to <br />January 2) <br />Hearing <br />Closed <br /> <br />PROPOSED PARK <br />Camino Real <br />and Second Ave. <br />Continued to <br />January 2. <br /> <br />=J I ') :: ( <br /> <br />CONDITIONAL <br />USE PERMIT'/J-" <br />(343 4; v-t, <br />Colorado) j <br /> <br />l~ C,4P <br /> <br />20:8195 <br /> <br />Planning Commission Resolution No. 797 recommending amendments to the <br />zoning ordinance relating to service stations. The Planning Director <br />summarized the various amendments and the effect on the conditional use <br />permit process. It was submitted that the applicant, Shell Oil Company, <br />is requesting the amendment in order to permit automated car wash <br />equipment to be located completely within a bay of a service station. <br /> <br />Mayor Hage declared the hearing open and Dennis Noble of the Shell Oil <br />Company explained the proposed operation which does not replace the <br />tunnel type car wash - it does not have blowers or the normal type <br />drying systems used in car wash operations and would not create ob- <br />jectionable sound to the environment. It is to provide an additional <br />service to the customers. There would not be any interior vacuum <br />cleaning of the vehicle. No one else desiring to be heard the hearing <br />was CLOSED on MOTION by Councilman Scott, seconded by Councilman Helms <br />and carried unanimously. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />During the ensuing discussion Councilman Scott expressed concern in two <br />areas - 1) the possibility of opening up the degree to which automotive <br />repair work may be done in service stations and 2) washing of automobiles <br />'with mechanized equipment - that in the main operations of this nature <br />are difficult to maintain in an attractive condition. The need for <br />more time to study and perhaps observe one or more such operations was <br />expressed and the matter was continued to January 2, 1973. <br /> <br />On December 12 the Planning Commission approved the environmental impact <br />statement for the proposed park at the southeast corner of Camino Real <br />and Second Avenue but urged Council to seek the best possible location <br />of noise generating elements within the design of the proposed park. <br />Council received staff report in this regard (dated December 12). It <br />was the consensus that the matter be continued pending a full Council, <br />however, in deference to those who were present and desired to speak to <br />the matter Mayor Hage opened the meeting for such purpose. <br /> <br />R.. E. Baker, 224 E. Camino Real, submitted that he resides immediately <br />adjacent to the proposed park and for the protection of his property <br />asked Council to favorably consider the construction of a 6 foot block <br />wall with a 2 foot chain link fence on top of the wall. He felt this <br />would completely eliminate the noise factor from the proposed tennis <br />courts and intruders. If this were done he would not have any objection <br />to the tennis courts which were designed for construction immediately <br />adjacent to his property. <br /> <br />The Planning Director submitted that new environmental impact statements <br />will be prepared - including the request for the wall - and separate <br />reports indicating different locations for the tennis courts. The matter <br />was continued to January 2, 1973. <br /> <br />The Planning Commission granted a conditional use permit for what is <br />termed a planned residential development at 343 W. Colorado Boulevard. <br />Resolution No. 798 specifies conditions of approval. The Planning <br />Director displayed projecturals and explained the unusual topography <br />and configuration of the proposed development. It was noted in par- <br />ticular that one of the conditions requires that "no vehicular access <br />be on Colorado Boulevard or Colorado Street" - access to be limited to <br />Oakhurst Lane. A decorative masonry wall is to be placed on the peri- <br />meter of the development except on public streets or the street sides <br />of the property. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Councilman Helms expressed concern in several areas of the project: <br />ingress and egress with the narrow width of Oakhurst to absorb ad- <br />ditional traffic which would be generated from the seven new residences; <br />the density; and the inconsistency in allowing this type of development <br />which is below the minimum standards for planned unit developments. <br /> <br />12-19-72 <br /> <br />- 2 - <br />
