<br />HEARING <br />SCHEDULED <br /> <br />v' <br /> <br />CONDITIONAL <br />USE PERMIT <br />RATIFIED <br /> <br />JY /1 J~ <br /> <br />--J <br /> <br />19 :7870 <br /> <br />Mayor Helms declared the hearing open and Gordon Maddox, 1510 os. Baldwin <br />Avenue, realtor and in the engineering business, referred to a letter <br />to Council in which reasons for the appea+ were set forth; that efforts <br />were made in planning to preserve the existing gqrage on one of the lots, <br />maintaining the required setback. <br /> <br />Also an effort was made to include and preserve for the use of Parcel 2 <br />the existing swimming pool and pool decking. Mr. Maddox stated in part' <br />that to relocate the garage would create an unnecessary. financial <br />hardship on the property owner and developer and explored the steps <br />involved in complying with that requirement. He noted that there is no <br />objection on the part of the adjacent property owners and felt that the <br />lot split if granted would enhance the neighborhood as the oversized <br />exposed rear yard would then be eliminated. He concluded his remarks <br />with an appeal for a reversal of the Commission's denial. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />No one else desiring to be heard the hearing was CLOSED on MOTION by <br />Councilman Butterworth, seconded by Councilman Rage and carried unani- <br />mously. <br /> <br />The City Attorney pointed out that the Municipal Code requires a 100' <br />frontage as previously submitted; that any variation therefrom can be <br />adopted by the Council either upon recommendation of the Commission or <br />in the exercise of its discretion after proof of necessity has been <br />established. The Planning Director stated in part that all of the lots <br />on Park Avenue are 100' wide or better. <br /> <br />Councilman Considine observed in part that there is a uniform develop- <br />ment of 100' lots along Park Avenue on the east side and this would be <br />the one property facing that side; that it would be a shame to break <br />the code to save a garage, which to him is not as important as the <br />appearance of the overall street. That there appears to be ample room <br />on the lot to relocate the garage; that he would be inclined to sustain <br />the Commission. <br /> <br />Councilman Hage agreed with this observation. <br /> <br />Councilman Arth submitted that the homes on the opposite side of Park <br />Avenue are all 100' and those on Fairview Avenue are all 90'; that the <br />entire situation is difficult. <br /> <br />Mayor Helms agreed hut because more onerous restrictions have been <br />imposed on other developers than the moving of a garage and considering <br />if it were permitted it would be non-conforming with the residences in <br />the immediate area he felt he could not be in favor of the lot split; <br />that hardship is not sufficient justification to make'such a change. <br /> <br />Whereupon it was MOVED by Councilman Butterworth, seconded by Councilman <br />Considine and carried on roll call vote as follows that the decision of <br />the Planning Commission be and it is hereby SUSTAINED and the appeal <br />denied. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />AYES: <br />NONE: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Arth, Butterworth, Considine, Hage, Helms <br />None <br />None <br /> <br />September 7 was scheduled for the public hearing on the Planning <br />Commission recommendation for classification of certain properties into <br />the "D" Zone (Upper Rancho area).
