No. 808). The Planning Director explained <br />the contents of said resolution and recommended modifications. He also <br />advised that the residents in the area had established a Homeowners' <br />Association in an endeavor to maintain the high quality of the area and <br />had requested the D overlay. He noted that the administrative guidelines <br />are the same as the other Homeowners' Associations with the exception of <br />Page 5 of said resolution which gives the Committee of the Association <br />the power to assess an applicant a reasonable fee for the hiring of an <br />expert for the review of an applicant's plans. <br /> <br />Mayor Arth declared the hearing open and Lewis Lawrence, 246 Angelo <br />Place, stated in part that the contents of the resolution had been re- <br />viewed and with reference to the exception referred to by the Planning <br />Director the Committee is only interested in recovering whatever cost <br />the association would incur in reviewing the working plans and specifi- <br />cation; that it may become necessary to employ experts or some qualified <br />persons to work with the Committee. With reference to the Appeal Section <br />the last sentence of Section 13 should not be in the resolution as it is <br />not applicable. He noted that the contents of the resolution have been <br />worked out in cooperation with the City Attorney. In response to an <br />inquiry he concurred that it is reasonable to report any fees collected <br />to the City Finance Director. <br /> <br />Councilman Scott expressed concern with Section A (f) Employment of an <br />expert); that he realizes there may be times ,when it would be necessary <br />to employ an expert but there would also be times when some of the <br />residents who are architects themselves would prepare their own plans <br />and submit them to the Committee; that it would be ridiculous for one <br />architect to have another architect change his plans to conform to the <br />Committee's desires. He felt there should be opportunities for dis- <br />cretion in this regard and that the resident who has competent archi- <br />tectural assistance available to him, without cost should not be forced <br />to use the expert the Committee chooses and have to pay a fee. He also <br />said he would assume the applicant may withdraw his application prior to <br />any expert fee being incurred. <br /> <br />1 <br /> <br />Mr. Lawrence stated in part that he understood the concern but felt it <br /> <br />4-17-73 <br /> <br />- 2 - <br /> <br />~~ <br />
