Motion carried. 1. At this time the City Council discussed the request of the Shell Oil Company for access over City property to the Madonna Inn Access Road adjacent to Madonna Road. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented sketches for the Council's information showing the access over City property to serve the proposed Shell Oil Company site. His sketch showed the proposed driveway approaches to the new station, two from Madonna Road and one from the Madonna Inn Access Road. He then showed a sketch of proposed signalization of the access road with Madonna Road which had received tentative approval from the Division of Highways. He stated that, based on the fact that the Council had taken no formal action to restrict access, he had already approved the plan for the Shell Oil Station access over City property to Madonna Inn Access Road, though a permit has not been issued for the encroachment. City Council Minutes March 18, 1968 Page 2 Mr. Southon, Shell Oil Company, urged that the City Council approve their request to use City property for access to their proposed service station from the Madonna Inn Access Road. Rich Norman, Engineer for the Shell Oil Company, stated that to his way of thinking the present proposal of Shell Oil Company for two entrances and exits from Madonna Road and one entrance and exit to the access road would be the best development for the service station. He stated he did not believe that the conflicts in traffic were too hazardous, particularly with the traffic signalization and traffic channelization approved by the City Engineer. He continued that if this was not feasible, then his firm would study other: alternatives for access to this-station. H. Murphy, Attorney for A. Madonna, stated that Mr. Madonna was opposed to allowing access over City property to the access road for Madonna Inn. His objection was based primarily on the heavy traffic using the access road at this time to and from the Inn and felt that allowing another entrance to this road before entering Madonna Road would be extremely hazardous and would add confusion to persons using this road. He felt that allowing a service station access at this point would make it difficult to control left turn movements onto the Madonna property and would make the traffic situation unbearable. Mr. Murphy then reviewed for the City Council the present construction going on at the Inn and proposed additions to the Inn and Motel plus possible future shopping center developments and felt that having additional traffic on the access road would be hazardous. He also stated that he felt that attempting to limit the Shell Oil Station driveway to egress only would be almost impossible to control and also the suggestion that the City place a barrier in the center of the access road he felt would be no answer to the problem. Rich-Norman, Engineer for the Shell Oil Company, stated if the•traffic pattern was recommended as approved by the Public Works Department, he was sure that the traffic problems would take care of themselves. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, stated that, in his opinion, the best of all alterna- tives from a City standpoint would be moving of the service station driveways as far West as practical on Madonna Road and permission for an exit only from the service station site onto the access road, with the access road driveway being moved back from the intersection as much as practical. Councilman Blake reviewed the matter on the use of City property at this location and felt that the City Council stated at that time that they were not interested in allowing the City property to be used for service station access. John Ruden, Realtor, stated that he originally asked the City Council for abandonment of this property but as the City Council was not receptive he therefore withdrew his request. He felt in discussing this matter with vari8us staff members, that a properly engineered site would be acceptable to the City ouncil. Councilman Gallagher stated that as he recalled the original discussion with Mr. Ruden, it was that if the property were abandoned it would be used for drainage structures and for beautification of the Martinelli property but not for access to the property. Councilman Blake stated he agreed with Councilman Gallagher's statements, as he recalled that the use of the property was to be for landscaping, beautification, and drainage. He stated he also agreed with Mr. Romero's comments to move the service station driveways as far west as possible away from the Madonna.Inn Access Road. He suggested the City not allow egress onto the frontage road. City Council Minutes March 18, 1968 Page 3 Councilman Spring stated he agreed with the comments of Councilman Blake except that he might consider allowing limited egress to the frontage road. Councilman Gallagher stated he could not see why the Shell Oil Company did not use their own land for access to their property without asking to use City property . as a private access road. Councilman Miller agreed with Councilman Gallagher and Councilman Blake and continued that before he would consider this request of the Shell Oil Company, he would like to see how the whole Martinelli property was to be developed so that a comprehensive traffic plan could be implimented. Without this plan he stated he would vote against the proposal. Mayor Whelchel stated_ that if this proposal were approved he would demand that the driveways be moved westerly away from the intersection with the frontage road. Also, he would object to allowing access to the frontage road. If the frontage road were used, then the other access should. be moved away_ from the intersection. Rich Norman, Shell Oil Company, stated that at least one driveway ramp on Madonna Road must be on City owned property as the Oil Company does not have enough .frontage under lease to develop the station on their own. property. He also stated he was sure that his firm would cooperate in the cost to widen the frontage road to four lanes if.it cost no more than to improve two lanes. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained how four lanes would be developed on the Madonna Inn frontage road. H. Murphy, attorney, wished to remind the City-Council that the sketch shown for signalization of this intersection was not State approved as had been mentioned but was just a proposal by the City for signal installation. Councilman Blake stated that the problem this evening was whether Shell Oil Company could use City property for development of their station. He continued that he personally did not want them to use City property for access to the frontage road. Councilman Gallagher moved that-the City deny egress and access over City property to the frontage road. Motion died-foi lack of a second. On motion of Councilman Blake, seconded by Councilman Spring, that the developer's engineer submit to the Planning Commission for the use permit a new plan with driveways on Madonna Road located westerly of the frontage road intersection with no egress or access to the frontage. Motion carried. Mayor Whelchel and Councilman Miller voting no. John Kuden asked if he understood the motion correctly that he can resubmit a plan to use City property for the service station site. The motion was re -read stating that a new plan could be-submitted with no access to the frontage road. 6. At this time the City Council-held a public hearing on Resolution No. 1794, a resolution requiring sidewalk improvements on portions of various streets in the 1 City of. San Luis Obispo. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented sketches to the City Council showing the properties involved and the improvements to be completed under this resolution. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing open. Mrs. K. J. Blodgett, 405 Foothill Boulevard, protested the City Council's requirement to install curbs and sidewalks on the side of her property due to the extensive cost and also the long period of time it took to complete the sidewalk improvements on Foothill Boulevard. City Council Minutes March 18, 1968 Page 4 She also stated she did not see why she had to place improvements on Tassajara which handles very little traffic, when many properties on Foothill Boulevard have not been completed with sidewalks. Mrs. Blodgett urged the City Council to go to some other area within the City with their sidewalk program because she felt that one more sidewalk project on her property would bankrupt her. Jack Swack, 171 North Tassajara, objected to the installation of sidewalk in front , of his property as his house is close to the street and this project would put the sidewalk within a very few feet of his bedroom and he felt that there were other areas in the City with a more urgent need for improvements. He also stated that he felt a very old tree that he planted when he moved to this area would be destroyed by the sidewalk installation. Mayor Whelchel explained to the public present the background for the City Council's sidewalk installation program and also the priorities established by a Citizen's Committee several years ago. George Martines, 399 Foothill Boulevard, objected to the requirement of placing improvements on the Tassajara side of his property due to the location of the Creek_. which runs parallel to the area where the sidewalk would be placed. He stated that in order to put sidewalk on this property it would require an expensive retaining wall, or a culvert would have to be placed in the property to handle the storm water. He continued that, originally the Creek ran diagonally,through his property, but that at some time a prior owner had run the Creek parallel to the rear line and at right angles along Tassajara Drive. He stated that since this change was made, the adjacent property owned by Garner had been damaged and that he was being threatened by Mrs. Garner with a law suit to repair and cease this damage. He.stated that if a suit were filed against him, he would have to protect himself and sue the City. He urged that the City put a culvert through his property to handle the storm water and to avoid continued damage. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained the history of this drainage ditch to the City Council as he could reconstruct it from photographs. He stated that the Creek had been diverted some time between 1949 and 1954. Mrs. Garner, 11 South Tassajara Drive, stated that 20 years ago, more or less, the City allowed the property owner of the property now owned by Martines, to change the course of the drainage ditch, and that the changing of this Creek had damaged her property and she demanded that some relief be given her. She stated she was extremely vexed at the City for not taking care of this matter as she has complained of it for many years as did her husband prior to his death. She also stated that she cannot afford to place the improvements being required of her by the City at this time. George Martines asked that the City Council make some decision on the drainage problem at this time as he felt that if the City takes no action he will be forced to consult an attorney to sue the City for damages. He offered to pay a portion of the cost of installing the culvert but not all the cost. He continued he would dig the new channel if the City would put in the culvert. Mayor.Whelchel stated that he felt it was not the City's responsibility to improve drainage problems on private property. Mrs. Garner stated she felt the City was responsible for changing the drainage channel and she demanded the City do something about protecting her property which is now in danger from the flood water. M. A. Mallory, 493 Pismo Street, objected to the placement of sidewalk on his property at this time as he does not feel that any need has been shown for sidewalks in this area. City Council Minutes March 18, 1968 Page .S He also stated he can not afford to pay for these improvements at this time and hoped the City Council would postpone any action on this matter. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing closed. On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Councilman Spring, the following resolution was introduced. Resolution No. 1802, a resolution determining that ' public convenience and necessity require construction of certain improvements. The Garner and Martines properties were dropped from-the list. 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 2. Traffic Committee Report of March 18, 1968. 68- 3 -16C. The Council will recall that the matter of the timing of the traffic signal at Foothill Boulevard and the Southern Pacific railroad tracks was-referred back to the Traffic Committee. After giving further consideration to Mr. Romero's report, the Traffic Committee agrees that-it would be better to leave the timing as it is at present so as not to delay the signal phases for vehicular traffic any more than necessary. Mr. Romero is checking on the possibility of changing the lighting pattern on California Boulevard so that after-the crossing gates go down, California will have a green light rather than a flashing red which seems to cause some confusion and congestion. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Miller, that the City Council accept the recommendation of the Traffic Committee. Motion carried. 68- 3 -17C. The Council has before it tonight a petition from several residents in the vicinity of Terrace Hill requesting that something be done about motorcyclists on the hill. The Traffic Committee does not see any practical way of stopping all motorcyclists from using the hill but sees the only solution as continuing police enforcement when residents call the department. Mr. Peter Guy, 1336 Cecelia Court, appeared before the City Council urging that the City Council support the petitioners requesting that the motorcyclists be prohibited from using Terrace Hill for hill climbing purposes. Councilman Blake questioned the recommendation of having the City Police Department remove people from private property for violation of trespassing signs. He felt this matter should be controlled by the property owner. Further, being a resident of the area, Councilman Blake did not feel that this motorcycle hill climb was such a terrible nuisance as he feels the cyclists should have some place to go, and if the property owner did not object, he did not feel that the City Police should control the activities. Jim Ward, Motorcycle Shop Operator, appeared before the City Council stating that a great number of young men enjoyed riding their cycles and hill climbing is an exciting part of this sport. '. He asked the City Council if there was any way they could help the young motor- cyclists in getting the use of some property for a hill climb area. He stated it could be very poor land and that they would keep it clean, etc. On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Councilman Blake, that the City ask the Park and Recreation Commission to look into this problem and see if some area could be made available at the Laguna Lake property away from the dwellings. Motion carried. The Staff was also asked to see if they knew of any areas for hill climbing activities away from residences. City Council Minutes March 18, 1968 Page 6 68- 3 -18T. .Since the City has annexed the property along lower Higuera Street, it appears that some speed limit posting is necessary since the present 40 -mile per hour limit ends at the truck stop near Prado Road. It is recommended that lower Higuera be posted for a 50 -mile per hour speed limit beyond this point extending to a point near the Castle Motel which is the present City Limits. Mayor Whelchel suggested that in lieu of.the 50 mph as recommended, that a 45 mph speed limit be set to Silver City Trailer Park and beyond that point the State 65 mph speed limit be allowed. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Miller, the following ordinance was introduced. Ordinance No. 411, an ordinance establishing speed limits along portions of lower Higuera Street. Introduced and passed to print on the following roll call vote: AYES: Emmons Blake, Frank Gallagher, Arthur F. Spring, Donald Q. Miller, Clell W. Whelchel NOES: None ABSENT: None 68- 3 -19C. The Traffic Committee has taken a look at the Butler driveway problem and has asked Mr. Romero to come back with a solution to the problem with the idea that he can do the work with City forces. It appears that there will be some sidewalk and some street work involved. Continued for report from D. F. Romero, City Engineer. 3. Communication from the Downtown Fashion Guild requesting permission of the City Council to place poles with colorful banners in the flag pole holes in front of the participating stores and also permission to place flowers made of contact paper on the sidewalks in front of the same stores.

Communication from the Mall Foundation requesting permission to hold an official opening of the redesigned Parking Lot No. 2 on April 6, 1968 with ribbon cutting at 10:00 A.M., displays by the participating merchants and an outdoor art show. The Mall Foundation asked that the Garden Alley and a portion of the Parking Lot near the alley be closed for this occasion. They also asked the cooperation of the Police Department and the Public Works Department in setting out barricades for this day. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Spring, the request was approved. Motion carried. 5A. R. D. Young, Planning Director, reported for the Committee selecting a land- scape architect to prepare the plan for the Mission Plaza. R. D. Young stated that three well qualified persons were interviewed for the work and recommended that the City Council engage Mr. Richard Taylor and Associates. R. D. Young continued that while all the candidates were qualified for the work, the Committee decided on Mr. Taylor because of his proposed approach to the problem and his obvious feeling for retaining and enhancing the natural qualities of the site. Mr. Richard Taylor appeared before the City Council stating that the preliminary designs would be ready for analysis and review by the City Council within two weeks of being given notice to proceed and the preliminary master plan would be completed two weeks after that. Working drawings would be completed within 75 to 90 days of receiving the assignment. City Council Minutes March 18, 1968 Page 7 Mr. Taylor stated that he was thrilled with the assignment and felt that San Luis Obispo was very fortunate in having an area of this type in the heart of its mercantile area. Mr. Taylor then explained his payment schedule which he stated would be reduced to a contract between the City and his firm. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Blake, that the recommen- dation be accepted and Richard .Taylor and Associates be retained for the prepara- tion of the Mission Plaza plan subject to a contract being entered into with the City.

Recommendation from the Planning Commission to rezone 172 California Boulevard from R -3 to R -H was set for public hearing April 1, 1968. 9. At this time the City Council considered Ordinance.No. 409, an ordinance regulating the erection and maintenance of barbed wire fences within the City of San Luis Obispo. 0 City Council Minutes March 18, 1968 Page 8 Mayor Whelchel questioned the requirement of not allowing any barbed wire along. public streets, lanes or alleys particularly when the newly annexed area to the City is still agricultural in use and barbed wire fences would be needed. The matter was continued for the City Attorney to reword the proposed ordinance. 10. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented for the Council's consideration plans and specifications for the extension of Parking Lot No. 11 on Monterey Street. D. F. Romero explained the scope of the work to be accomplished and the resulting parking that would be made available by this extension. He stated the estimated cost of the project including landscaping, engineer, inspection, etc., would be $36,000. The matter was continued to April 1, 1968 to investigate the necessity of a walkway and gate for the fire escape from the adjoining property. 11. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented the plans and specifications.for the proposed rifle range buildings at the Sewer Plant stating that under the present proposal the only cost to the City would be $5,000 as rifle clubs and other interested parties were contributing labor and materials to construct these. buildings, but that according to the City Charter it was necessary that the plans and specifications first be advertised and rejected by the City Council. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained the construction of the building, the method of handling the rifle.points, etc. . On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Miller, the plans and specifications were approved and the City Engineer was authorized to call for bids. Motion carried. 12. Request by the Department of Public Health for the adoption of an ordinance providing for the control of food and drink establishments in the City of San Luis Obispo was continued. 13. Councilman Spring brought to the Council's attention the matter of the lateness of the City Council Meetings and stated that it was unfair to the Council, Staff and public to stay in session after midnight as people were tired, poor decisions were made because of lack of study, the public would not stay because of lateness of the hour, and he urged the City Council to make some provisions either for meeting earlier in the afternoon for the routine matters or meeting.once a week.or some other solution because he stated he would refuse to stay after midnight as he felt he could not do a good job for the citizens of San Luis Obispo. Councilman Miller agreed with Councilman Spring's statements, that after.working all day it was.difficult to keep alert on City problems after midnight. He suggested that possibly the City Council could start their meetings one hour earlier each Monday and take care of the routine items. Councilman Gallagher suggested that the City Council work up until midnight and then whatever matters were not completed, adjourn to Wednesday Noon and complete those items which are normally routine staff matters. The City Council discussed various approaches to controlling the hours of the Council Meetings, and the final concensus was that the Council would adjourn at midnight to a later date to complete the agenda if necessary. 14A. Memorandum from Fire Chief, L. Schlobohm, regarding the 1968 Weed Abatement Program was continued for further Council consideration. City Council Minutes March 18, 1968 Page 9 14B.

He stated that Mr. Rudnick, attorney.for the Credit Union, had indicated that his clients felt that United California Bank should share in the expense of installing the underground drainage facilities which would ultimately be required in the easement across the golf course property and that he was ready to discuss this matter with representatives of U.C.B. at any time. Mr. Rudnick, attorney for the Credit Union, stated that the statements presented ' by Mr. Johnson were correct and that they would continue looking into the problem with the City and D.C.B. Councilman Miller stated that he felt the City Council should notify the California Bank that if they do not complete the improvements in Tract No. 322 within two weeks then the City should go after their subdividers bond and the City complete the tract. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained that there was no subdivision bond on this tract but only a letter of credit which is the money the California Bank is presently holding. D. F. Romero continued, upon question, regarding the problems involved in utility installations in Tract No. 322 and also explained the reasons of the concrete failures in the curb, gutter and sidewalks.

D. F. Romero, City Engineer, stated that.it was impossible for his staff to do the survey at this time due to the press of other work with high priority previously established by the City Council. He estimated that a crew would be required for two weeks. After reviewing these projects with Mr. Romero, the City Council felt that a survey party made up of members of Mr. Romero and Mr. Young's staff could prepare this survey for Mr. Taylor in less than a week, other survey projects to be put off temporarily. The City Council asked that the City Engineer and Planning Director work.this matter out and expedite the preparation of this plan. .
