He continued that his desire is to remain in racing and to use <br />a portion of the property for a shopping center for which an application <br />has been made - that any change in the zoning would make the property <br />subject to review by the County Assessor ... that he is concerned about <br />the property being included in the General Plan - as its very inclusion <br />might indicate a higher use for it and the Assessor could say it is not <br />being used for that higher use. He expressed his desire that the property <br />remain in R-l zone. <br /> <br />In answer to Councilman Helms' further question as to whether or not Santa <br />Anita has taken an option on property near the Foothill Freeway east of <br />Arcadia for a shopping center, Mr. Strub answered in part that he was <br />unfamiliar with the rumor; that there is no such option, no intention to <br />purchase nor has he looked at any such property. <br /> <br />It was then MOVED by Councilman Helms, seconded by Councilman Hage and <br />carried unanimously that the public hearing on Fashion Park be and it is <br />hereby CLOSED. <br /> <br />Mayor Butterworth stated that each Councilman would now be given an <br />opportunity to make any observations he deemed appropriate. <br /> <br />1-19-71 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
