This Special <br />Meeting was called for the purpose of considering a matter in connection <br />with a proposed Shopping Center. <br /> <br />Mayor Edward L, Butterworth <br /> <br />'1'/5"'- <br />At the Council meeting of August 4, Resolution No. ~ was adopted <br />requesting the County Board of Supervisors to place a Proposition on <br />the Ballot consolidated with the Statewide General Election to be <br />held November 3. The Proposition to be voted upon would be whether <br />Or not to adopt an ordinance changing the zoning to permit a regional <br />shopping center and two 12 story office buildings at the northeast <br />corner of Huntington Drive and Baldwin Avenue, and to permit a 12 <br />story 170' height limit in an 'H' Special Height Zone on a lot not <br />less than 10 acres in size. <br /> <br />4'/53 <br />At the time Resolution No. ~ was adopted, the deadline for filing <br />such requests with the Board was August 7, however, this date was <br />extended to August 14 and the document was not filed on August 7. <br />During the interim the City Attorney redrafted the resolution into <br />two Propositions, separating the 'H' Special Zone portion from the <br />commercial complex and this Special Meeting was called in order for <br />Council to consider the new adaptation. <br /> <br />In discussing the contents of the new resolution it was noted that <br />the Planning Commission is deliberating the issue at this very hour <br />at another location (Longley Way School). The City Attorney noted <br />that Council is bound by the procedural provision of the zoning <br />ordinance which states it cannot adopt any zoning ordinance until <br />the Commission has acted thereon, or should the Commission delay 35 <br />days in taking action the matter could come before Council at that <br />time. <br /> <br />Under the Elections Code a legislative body may formulate the wording <br />of a Proposition and submit it to the Board before an ordinance is <br />adopted. The ordinance can then be considered and adopted and submitted <br />in time for inclusion in the sample ballot mailing. If Council reaffirms <br />its action of August 4 and adopts the new resolution, it would have to <br />be filed with tIE Board by the new deadline August l4. Once the Board <br />has accepted the measures for the consolidated election they cannot be <br />Withdrawn, especially in view of the extended time granted by the Board. <br />All material for the official Ballot is submitted to the printer <br />immediately thereafter. In considering the schedule which would have <br />to be met in order to hold public hearings, take action and prepare <br />the final appropriate ordinance the Planning Commission would have to <br />take formal action at its meeting being held this date. <br /> <br />Councilman Arth stated in part that initially he had thought it was a <br />good idea to place the matter on the forthcoming ballot, however, now <br />that the deadline is forthwith he felt the Commission would be hard <br />pressed,..He was willing to meet as often as necessary but thought it <br />would be a mistake to push such a crucial issue. He referred to the <br />full calendar facing Counci 1. <br /> <br />8-13-70 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
