Margaret Stevens" Santa Anita Church <br /> <br />Mayor Edward L. Butterworth <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Arth, Considine, Hage, Helms, Butterworth <br />None <br /> <br />On MOTION by Councilman Considine, seconded by Councilman Helms and <br />carried unanimously the minutes of the regular meeting of Dec~mber <br />15, 1970 were APPROVED, <br /> <br />The Planning Commission by Resolution No, 717 granted a conditional use <br />permit for the continuation of a riding academy and residence at 11721 <br />East Clark Street (Chicago Park area). Regulations were set forth <br />therein which did not specify any time limit on the permit. The <br />Planning Director explored the conditions and stated in part that <br />staff felt that inasmuch as the area is subject to possible urban <br />renewal action there was concern for the need of a time limit so <br />no complicating factors would be introduced in these proceedings <br />should they come to pass - although no serious obstacles should <br />occur. It also appears that limiting the permitted uses to a period <br />of 5 years should be acceptable to the applicant and this would not <br />disturb the intent of the Commission in its granting of a permit, <br /> <br />Discussion ensued on what might occur if the City should desire to <br />embark on such a program say, within a 24 month period and the riding <br />academy and the residence were to preclude the project unless con- <br />demnation proceedings were instituted which Council would prefer not <br />to do, <br /> <br />Mayor Butterworth declared the hearing open and Keith Davidson, owner <br />of about 11 acres in the Chicago Park Area including the improvements <br />stated in part that a time limit is of the essence inasmuch as he would <br />like to negotiate a new long term lease with his lessee, He referred to <br />his endeavors to clear the title to the property and in answer to quest- <br />ions concerning whether or not he would be willing to sell his property <br />to the City should urban renewal proceedings be instituted he felt he <br />should consult his attorney, Whereupon it was agreed that Mr. Davidson's <br />attorney would confer with the City Attorney and the matter was CONTINUED <br />until the regular meeting of February 2, 1971, <br /> <br />The Planning Commission recommended reclassification of a portion of the <br />property at 235 East Foothill Boulevard from Zone PR-l (Automobile park- <br />, ing zone, second one-family zone) to Zone C-2, (General Commercial zone.) <br />)C'v~1 According to the Planning Director the zone change is necessary ,to permit <br />, \ a proposed restaurant to be placed in approximate alignment with other <br />I commercial developments on adjacent property,which alignment would provide <br />a better development as compared to that under the existing zoning.
