Councilman Considine then <br />MOVED that the minutes of the Adjourned Regular Meeting of November 24, <br />1970 and the Regular Meeting of December 1, 1970 be APPROVED. Motion <br />seconded by Councilman Rage and carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Property owners on Newman Avenue between Santa Anita and First Avenues <br />had petitioned the City for the installation of sidewalks. Staff had <br />estimated the cost per the average 50' lot at $60 which did not include <br />any court cost or severance damages in the event condemnation proceedings <br />were necessary. Notices to this effect were mailed to all owners of <br />record, Mayor Butterworth declared the hearing open. <br /> <br />C, J, Hubley, 30 E. Newman Avenue, spoke in favor of the sidewalks but <br />not the assessment. He explored in detail the situation as he understood <br />it - and made reference to communications between the State Division of <br />Highways and the City concerning the construction of sidewalks on the <br />subject street, which was by necessity terminated in a cut de sac to <br />permit the Foothill Freeway construction by the State, He stated in part <br />that theretofore residents on Newman Avenue had vehicular access to First <br />Avenue and that it was reasonable that they be provided with an adequate <br />concrete sidewalk for pedestrians now that the freeway was constructed <br />in that area, He felt circumstances led the property owners to believe <br />sidewalks would be forthcoming but not at their expense. <br /> <br />In answer to a question Mr. Hubley stated in part that if Council came to <br />the conclusion that it was not equitable for the City to install the <br />sidewalks he would believe the property owners would rather do without <br />them than to have to bear the cost. <br /> <br />The record contains petitions for the sidewalks and a petition favoring <br />the sidewalks but not the cost ~ the latter contains 11 property owner <br />signatures out of 17, <br /> <br />12~15-70 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
