Foothill Boulevard from R-l to <br />R-3 to permit the construction of garden type apartments, <br /> <br />The Planning Director noted the Commission's findings as set forth in <br />Resolution No. 736 that the zone change was not justified by either <br />public necessity, convenience, general welfare or good zoning practice <br />and had recommended denial, This followed a public hearing at which <br />the matter was considered extensively. Mayor Helms then declared the <br />hearing open. <br /> <br />Howard Garrison, 870 W, Foothill Boulevard, one of the applicants, <br />spoke at-length concerning the requested rezoning and noted in part <br />that the subject property is bounded in the north and south by the <br />Foothill Freeway; that no one has offered to purchase the land for R-l <br />development; that the zoning ordinance does not reflect exactly what <br />the applicants desire to build; that although R-3 permits one unit for <br />every 2,000 sq. ft, of 'space, what is proposed would permit 2,865 sq. ft. <br />per unit; that they are not interested in building for the density <br />allowed by the current R-3 zoning. He continued that they are not <br />interested in building rentals - the units would be owner condominiums. <br />He compared what is proposed with what has been constructed along <br />Orange Grove Avenue in Pasadena where one unit has 3,000 sq. ft. of <br />ground space. <br /> <br />It was stated further in part that some of the residents north of <br />Foothill Boulevard consider condominiums the best use for the land - <br />that some feel eventually condominiums will be approved, however it <br />seems there is a fear of the unknown, i.e., what would happen to the <br />so-called Anoakia property on the north side of Foothill at Baldwin <br />Avenue; what would happen to the so-called island between the two <br /> <br />7 - 6-71 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
