Motion carried. 1. R. D. Miller, Administrative Officer, reported to the City Council on a meeting held between representatives of the City of San Luis Obispo, Unified School District and the Public Utilities Commission regarding a proposal to have the Southern Pacific Railroad Company install a chain link fence along the railroad right of way on San Luis Drive. The reason for the request was that the students attending the High School and Junior High School cross these-tracks for access to the central part of the City and the possibility of an accident is great with trains using these tracks. R. D. Miller, Administrative Officer, stated that this request was brought to the PUC's attention by the legislative representative of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers requesting that some protective device be installed between the railroad tracks and the School property in order to keep the young people off the tracks and off the trains. Dr. Newman, Assistant School Superintendent, stated that this matter was a serious one to the School Authorities as the young people are constantly using the railroad property for access to areas west of the school property. He continued that the School District -had discussed this matter with railroad representatives but to date had received no cooperation from them. He proposed, based on the informal discussions held by the City, School District and PUC representatives, that the railroad put in a fence along their right of way from the Johnson Avenue Overpass to the San Luis Creek Bridge and that the City and Unified School District share in the maintenance after installation. Mr. Neill, local Southern Pacific Company representative, upon question, stated that he knew nothing about this matter but came to the meeting to be informed so that he could report to his Company. The City Council then discussed the proposal as presented by the School System considering the safety of the young people attending school facilities east of the railroad tracks. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Miller, that the City encourage the installation of the requested protective fence by the Southern Pacific Company and that the City and School District would share equally in its maintenance for 50 years. Motion carried. 1 1 1 City Council Minutes January 2, 1968 Page 2 2. Mayor Whelchel presented for the Council's consideration the possibility of acquiring a parcel of land in the vicinity of High and Leff Streets for development into a small neighborhood park with playground equipment, benches, etc.,.to serve thenesidents of the immediate area. He stated he had discussed this matter with staff members and that they were looking into the possibility of what the cost would be to acquire the County Housing Development property on High Street. The City Council received a communication from the EOC of San Luis Obispo County, Grassroots Project, requesting that the City Council acquire and develop a community recreational area in the south area of San Luis Obispo, the area bounded generally by Higuera, South Street, South Higuera and South Broad to Orcutt Road and west of Highway 101. The EOC stated that this area is populated by a great number of young and elderly people who would make use of a park facility if it were a reasonable distance from their homes. They feel there is an immediate need for one or more community parks in this area and that they should contain the following facilities as a minimum: picnic area, senior citizens area, children's recreational area and a building for classes, assembly and community activities. There should also be play fields for various ball.games and possibly a swimming pool and tennis courts. Walter Owens, representing the Grassroots Project, appeared before the City Council urging that the City Council start investigation toward the, development of a com- plete recreational complex in the southeast quadrant of the City. He continued that the people in this area are in dire need of a recreational area for the young.people and for senior citizens. He continued that the residents of the area want to help develop the park once it is acquired by the City by contributions of labor and material and further that after the park is a reality, the men and women of this area will help supervise the ' activities in the park for people of all ages. The City:,Council discussed with Mr. Owens the development•of park -and recreation facilities in the southeast quadrant of the City. W. E. Flory, Park and Recreation Director, listed for the City Council available park, playground and recreational equipment in.the general area under discussion. He offered to go over the request of the EOC group and prepare an analysis for the Council's information. Ralph Guerrero, representing the EOC, urged the City Council to.proceed with the - orderly development of recreational facilities in this portion of the City for the benefit of all citizens of the community. Stanley Rogers reported that conditions at the Brook Street playground are in deplorable state and.that the equipment is in poor repair and stated that this small playground does not serve the needs of the area, but that a larger park should be developed where.people.of all ages can.enjoy themselves. He suggested that the Brook Street Playground should be abandoned. Reverend Banks stated he.felt the Brook Street Playground should be abandoned and that an adequate playground and park should be supplied this general area. Frank Leguina, Grassroots Project,,stated that his organization is.supporting the people in this area in developing a community park. Walter Owens stated what his group wanted was a large park which would accommodate not only the small children and teenagers but the adults and senior citizens. He again stated that the people in the area would like to help build the park and then would supervise the facility after construction. City Council Minutes January 2, 1968 Page 3 On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Spring, the request was referred to the Park and Recreation Commission for study and a report back to the, City Council. -Motion carried. 3. Traffic Committee Report of December 21, 1967. 68 -1 -1T. Although the City has requested traffic channelization at the intersection of Broad Street south of Santa Barbara and South Streets in the past, the State has not seen fit to go along with our suggestion. However, we feel that we should make another attempt to have two lanes of traffic delineated south of this intersection on Broad. We also feel that it would be helpful if a red zone extending for five car lengths were painted on the east side of Broad Street south of the crosswalk. If the Council concurs, we suggest that the City Engineer write to the Division of Highways asking for these improvements. 68 -1 -2T. The Traffic Committee also feels that traffic flow at the above inter- section would be improved if the curbing between the two driveways alongside the Shell Station were painted red, this being on the south side of South Street west of Broad. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, asked that these two items be continued as he was not present at the last Traffic Committee Meeting and that he has been working with the Division of Highways on this matter and that he has a plan for the Traffic Committee's consideration. 68 -1 -3T. The Traffic Committee feels that safety considerations would be served by stopping Emily at Roundhouse and we so recommend. 68 -1 -4T. The Traffic Committee has received a request from the Del " - -Monte Grocery' for two green 12 minute time limit spaces on the south side of Upham west of Santa Barbara Street. We so recommend but suggest that the first 15 feet of curbing be painted red followed by the two green spaces. 68 -1 -5T. In connection with the one way street installation on Pismo and Buchon Streets, the Traffic Committee feels-that it is no longer necessary to have the 40 feet of red zone alongside the grocery at the corner of Osos and Pismo and recommend that the 40 feet of red zone be converted to 40 feet of yellow loading zone (this being located on the south side of Pismo west of Osos Street). 68 -1 -6T. In connection with the one way street pair, we also feel that it would be desirable to eliminate the 40 feet of red zone on the south side of Pismo Street west of Broad, leaving 15 feet of red zone at the corner but eliminating the rest of the red zone. We also feel that the entire 40 feet of red zone on the east side of Broad Street south of Pismo should be eliminated. The latter suggestion should be cleared with the Division of Highways. 68 -1 -7T. Recently the Traffic Committee extended the parking restrictions on . Longview Lane to include the west side of the street at the turn. It now appears that these parking restrictions should be extended 125 feet south on both sides of Longview Lane so that Clarence Brown who lives at 160 Longview Lane can get in and out of his driveways. On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Councilman Gallagher, the following resolution was introduced. Resolution No. 1781, a resolution establishing stop signs on Emily Street, establishing green zones on Upham Street, a loading zone on Pismo Street, rescinding parking restrictions on Pismo Street and Broad Street and establishing parking restrictions on Longview Lane. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: AYES: Emmons Blake, Frank Gallagher, Arthur F. Spring, Donald Q. Miller, Clell W. Whelchel NOES: None ABSENT: None City Council Minutes January 2, 1968 Page 4 4. The City Council discussed the proposal of appointing a citizens committee with the goal of preserving the beauty of the hills and other natural landscaped areas in and around the City. Councilman Donald Q. Miller stated he felt this committee should be appointed consisting not only of residents of the City but of interested citizens outside the City of San Luis Obispo. ' Enrico Bongio urged the City Council to.implement this proposal to protect the beauty and rural atmosphere of the City and surrounding area. Upon question, Mr. Bongio felt he could not serve on this committee as he could not give it enough time. Mr. Ron - Dunin, Hotel Motel Committee of the Chamber of Commerce, wanted to know if the proposed committee would be a citizens group or a staff commitee of the City. He stated that he would like this committee to protect the hills and other areas around the City but also felt that this committee should look into a cleanup and beautification of the existing City and urge property owners to clean up their buildings and grounds and the City to clean up and beautify the public areas. He too stated, upon question, he did not believe he would have the time to work on this committee but that:he would cooperate in any way he could. The matter was continued to the January 15, 1968 meeting for further consideration. 5. At this time the City Council held a public hearing on Resolution No. 1772, a resolution of intention to abandon Ruth Street between Ella Street and Leland Terrace. R. D. Young, Planning Director, stated to the City Council that the Planning Commission had held a public hearing on this matter and had discussed it with the adjoining property owners and it was the Planning Commission's recommendation that this street be abandoned as it was not needed for street purposes now or in the future except for an easement to the PG&E Company. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing open. . No one appeared before the City Council. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing closed. Councilman Donald Q. Miller stated that he felt this land on Terrace Hill lent itself to future development and felt it was not in the best interest of the City to abandon Ruth Street at this time. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, stated upon question, that he had no objection to abandoning Ruth Street at this location, as he felt there would be no need for this street.in the future and.he felt that-other streets are available which would serve this.area in the event of development.. It was moved by Councilman Miller,.that the request for abandonment be denied. Motion died for lack of a second. ' On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Spring, the following resolution was introduced. Resolution No. 1773, a resolution finding and determining that a portion of Ruth Avenue is unnecessary for present or prospective street purposes and ordering the abandonment.of same. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: AYES: Frank Gallagher, Arthur F. Spring, Clell W. Whelchel NOES: Donald Q. Miller, Emmons Blake ABSENT: None City Council Minutes January 2, 1968 Page 5 i 6. At this -time the City Council held a public hearing on the recommendation of the Planning Commission to reione'the southeast corner of Lincoln Street and Hill Street from R -1 to planned development R -2. R. D. Young', Planning Director, presented the recommendation of the Planning Commission'in recommending this planned development: 1. The subject property is 66,916 sq. ft. in area. The overall density of the proposed development is one unit per 4,779 sq. ft. The R -2 District permits one unit per 3,000 sq. ft. of land area. 2. The applicant proposes that the property be divided into seven-parcels` each containing one duplex. 3. =-The-subject property is contiguous to commercial property which fronts onto Broad Street. "• 4. The adopted General Plan'recommends that this area be developed as low - medium density. 5. -It was the consensus of the Commission that the density proposed was not inconsistent with the existing residential development in the neighborhood. R. D. Young continued and presented the following conditions for approval of the planned development. 1. Revise parking stalls on the corner lot of Hill and Lincoln Streets to allow cars to enter off of Lincoln Street and park behind the units so cars can exit in a forward-direction. 2. A 5' sidewalk pattern with 36' street be provided on Hill Street with the street fully improved to a berm on the opposite side. Establish future 5' sidewalk pattern on west side. 3. Developer remove and recompact dumped fill material on the property in accordance with provisions of the Grading Ordinance. 4.

A precise plan incorporating the above conditions shall be submitted to the Commission within six months and the total project shall be completed three years from the date of approval. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, wished to emphasize to the City Council that condition number 4 of the planned development would require a contribution by the City in putting in the 8" water line on Lincoln Street from Chorro Street to Hill Street. He stated that in accordance with Council policy if the existing connections on Lincoln Street are placed on the new line then the City would pay the full cost. Mr. Romero explained that Council policy calls for full improvement of the street including curb, gutter, and sidewalk on both sides prior to acceptance.! The implication of the Planning Commission's action would call for the City to accept this new portion of Hill Street without curb,' gutter, and sidewalk on the westerly side and would constitute a variation from normal City policy. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing open. D. Wheeler, developer of the property, asked several questions clarifying some of the Planning Commission conditions for this planned developmeit . D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained to the City Council the development of Hill Street under the proposed planned development.
