John Toews, Arcadia Christian Church <br /> <br />Mayor Conrad T. Reibold <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Balser, Considine, Forman, Turner, Reibold <br />None <br /> <br />The Minutes of the Regular Meeting of January 4, 1966 were APPROVED <br />on MOTION by Councilman Turner, seconded by Councilman Considine and <br />carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Planning Commission Resolution No. 573 recommending the amendment <br />of the Arcadia Municipal Code by amending Division 5, Part 7, <br />Chapter 2, Article IX, concerning regulations applicable to conva- <br />lescent facilities, and adding a new Section 9220.18.1. <br /> <br />The Planning Director explained the contents of said resolution and <br />read a communication from the President of the Huntington Drive <br />Convalescent Hospital, Elmer E. Slavik, wherein it was noted that the <br />only area of disagreement it had with the recommendation was Section <br />9275.5.3 which called for one bed for each 1000 sq. ft. of lot area; <br />that this was excessive. <br /> <br />Mayor Reibold declared the hearing open. No one desired to be heard <br />and the hearing was CLOSED on MOTION by Councilman Balser, seconded <br />by Councilman Forman and carried unanimously. <br /> <br />During the ensuing discussion on the requirement of lot area per bed, <br />the Planning Director stated in part that the Department could not <br />locate any standards pertaining to square footage requirement; that <br />1000 sq. ft. was arbitrarily decided upon as being appropriate for <br />Arcadia based on the three existing facilities in the City. <br />Attention was called to the possibility of additional such facilities <br />being constructed within the City due to the recently enacted <br />Medicare Program. He also commented on the tendency of these <br />facilities to become non-profit organizations, thus removing them <br />from the tax rolls. <br /> <br />It was Councilman Forman's op~n~on that the Planning Commission could <br />make minor modifications providing the development is satisfactory to <br />the City and MOVED that the City Council accept the recommendation as <br />contained in Resolution No. 573; and to provide for the Planning <br />Commission to modify this requirement if appropriate. The MOTION <br />died for lack of a second. <br /> <br />It was the consensus of the majority of the City Council that <br />reasonable guidelines should be provided and it was MOVED by <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />1-18- 66 <br />
