Butterworth <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Arth, Considine, Rage, Helms, Butterworth <br />None <br /> <br />On MOTION by Councilman Arth, seconded by Councilman Helms and carried <br />unanimously, the minutes of the regular meeting of August 4, 1970, <br />were APPROVED. Councilman Considine abstained from voting as he was <br />absent from said meeting. <br /> <br />An appeal was filed from the decision of the Planning Commission in <br />granting a conditional use permit for a Christian High School at 501 <br />North Santa Anita Avenue subject to conditions outlined in Resolution <br />No.706.. The appeal was petitioned by property owners and tenants <br />within a 300 ft. radius of the subject property and others opposed to <br />the high school in the subject location. In their letter of appeal it <br />was stated in part that it was felt the parking was inadequate, the <br />ground space for student recreation was inadequate and the facilities <br />could not accommodate the anticipated expansion from 125 to 250 students. <br />Mayor Butterworth asked for and received a show of hands of those in the <br />audience who were either in favor of or opposed to the high school at <br />the northwest corner of Colorado Boulevard and North Santa Anita Avenue. <br /> <br />The Planning Director detailed on projecturals the existing and surrounding <br />improvements. There is presently a vacant church building on the approxi- <br />mately one acre of land which is zoned R-3. The applicant proposes to <br />conduct a private high school with a student body of not more than 125 <br />students with a staff of 10 with a hope to expand at a later date but not <br />in the existing facility. The Planning Director explored the number of <br />accidents occurring at the intersection during the last eleven years and <br />stated that the site is adjacent to residential and multiple uses; that <br />there is not sufficient room for outdoor athletic activities. He indicated <br />the existing parking spaces which would be adequate for the enrolLment <br />presentLy anticipated. He recommended that a waLL be permitted to be <br />constructed on city Land to screen the parking area from the apartment <br />buiLdings and noted that the Commission recommended approvaL of the condi- <br />tional use permit for a period of one year and then enumerated the condition <br />of approvaL as set forth in the resoLution. <br /> <br />Mayor Butterworth declared the hearing open and the appLicant, PauL DisseLk. <br />introduced the PrincipaL of the Maranatha High SchooL, Mr. Green, who stated <br />in part that an option to purchase had been entered into with the owners of <br />the subject property. He said he understood the position of the adjacent <br />property owners as to the traffic generated in the area and the recreation <br />facilities. He said that similar problems were resolved after the schuol <br />began its operations in the City of Rosemead, which facility is beIng moved <br />to this area. He said that 110 students are enrolled at the presellt time <br />with seven fuLL and seven part time teachers, none of whom wuuLd be at the <br /> <br />8-18-70 <br /> <br />- L - <br />
