He stated that the first step would be for the City Council to acquire the land, then apply to the Federal Government for matching funds for development. He continued that many groups in the City have offered to help in the development of this park and asked that the City Council take the first steps in bringing this project into being.

Flory, Park and Recreation Director, presented a report on the conditions governing Federal Grant Programs for community parks, etc. He stated that he had been in contact with representatives of the Federal Housing and Urban Development Agency and that they have offered to cooperate in this program. He suggested that the first step would be the filing of an application for matching funds from the Federal Government. Councilman Gallagher stated that the way to get started was for the City to file an application and then have the Federal Agency review the application for adequacy and possible grant. On motion of Councilman Miller,•seconded by Councilman Spring,.that the City file an application for Federal Funds under appropriate federal laws for development of a recreational complex and park and appoint two Council members to work with the Park and Recreation Commission on the application.

H. Johnson, City Attorney, reported to the City Council on his progress in acquiring easements for walkways along the rear of the buildings facing Higuera Street. H. Johnson stated that several of the property owners have asked the City to consider the possibility of a reversionary clause in the easement agreement:in the event the Mission Plaza Project was to fail at some future date so that the property owners could reacquire full use of their property. H. Johnson continued that a majority of the property owners would be required in order to request the revision of the easement to them and not on an individual basis. On motion of Councilman Gallagher,.seconded by Councilman Blake, that a minimum of five years be used as a guideline for negotiations before property owners could reclaim their property. Also that the property owners be required to comply with the City architectural plan for landscaping of the Mission Plaza area. Motion carried., . . - • 5. At this time the City Council held a�public hearing on the recommendation of the Planning Commission to rezone that property located at 172 Foothill Boulevard from R -3 to R -H. R. D. Young, Planning Director, presented the recommendation of the Planning Commission in recommending this change in zoning so that the present student housing development on the property could be converted into a convalescent hospital and rest home. R. D. Young, continued that the property was presently zoned,R -3 and that it was the intention of the Commission to eventually phase out the R -3 District and place it into the R -0 or R -H zone. The Planning Commission recommended that this rezoning -be allowed by the City Council. Communication from Mrs. R. L. Andreini objecting to the proposed change of use of the Palm -Royal Residential Hall from student housing to a convalescent hospital. City Council Minutes April 1, 1968 Page 4 She continued that the student housing was necessary, was adjacent to the Cal Poly Campus and was an asset to the area, where a convalescent hospital would be a detriment and further the adjacent student housing would.impose a hardship on the patients in the hospital. . . Communication from Mrs. A. J. Young.objecting to the proposed rezoning and change . of use of the property located at 172 Foothill Boulevard. Mrs. Young stated that this was an asset to the students at Cal Poly, was a needed Residential Hall, was a poor location for a hospital due-to the traffic existing at this location at this time and the fact that the hospital would generate more traffic from deliveries of food and other supplies and the removal of garbage waste, etc. She felt the City should force the continued use of student housing on this property. R. C. Skinner, applicant, appeared- before the City Council on behalf of his requested change for rezoning and for use of this property as a convalescent hospital. He first presented slide pictures of architectural designs of the changes he proposes to make in the dormitory-building to convert it to hospital use. He continued that the student housing has been financially impossible and that it has been unable to pay for its way and that he no longer can handle this financial burden. He continued that he has now developed a proposal to develop the building into a convalescent hospital which will make the property a financial success and feels this would be an asset to the City and was needed by its citizens and urged the City Council to uphold the Planning Commission and allow the rezoning. H. Wilson, Vice President.of Cal Poly, appeared before the City Council stating that Cal Poly officially would take no side in this matter, but he personally feels that a hospital would be a poor addition to this area due to the noise and traffic caused by the students and felt that student housing was needed and that a properly managed facility could be successful. He also wished to go on record as stating that as the College grew and the traffic increased on California Boulevard, he hoped the City would not ask the College and students to quiet down and reduce their activities in deference to the hospital patients. N. Dupre, resident of Palm Royal, presented a petition of over 300 signatures of registered voters, students and nearby residents asking that the City Council not rezone this property for higher uses and not allow R. C. Skinner to convert this building into a hospital. Sally Stanley, resident of Palm Royal, presented a resolution from the residents of the establishment asking that the City Council not allow the conversion of the Palm Royal student Residential Hall into a convalescent hospital on the basis that the student housing was needed, that this facility was adequate, and that the noise and traffic would be a detriment to a hospital operation. John Evans, Planning Commissioner, explained his action in voting for the use permit for conversion of this development into a hospital and against the rezoning.. He stated that he must have been confused because it was his intention to vote for the rezoning and against the use permit to convert this building into a convalescent hospital. Sally Stanley stated she was sure that no one would start and build a hospital near a College when the neighboring buildings were already there. B. Barrows objected to this rezoning as he felt this was no place for a hospital. Walter Owens stated he felt that the City should allow Mr. Skinner to use his building to its most highly financial return and he felt a man should -be allowed to use his property as he sees fit. R. C. Skinner appeared before the City Council stating he felt this was.a free country and that under the free enterprise system he should be allowed to make a financial return on his investment. 1 1 City Council Minutes April 1, 1968 Page 5 He also stated that he had a valid use permit granted him by the Planning Commission and he felt the City Council had no right.to take this use away from him. H. Johnson, City Attorney, explained to the City Council that the problem here was that the Planning Commission had both rezoned the property and issued a use permit for its use prior to the completion of the rezoning by the City Council. However, he noted that the use permit was approved by the Commission subject to the approval by the City Council of the recommended rezoning. He felt the only matter under consideration by the City Council was whether the property should be rezoned from its existing use to R -H and if the City Council did not approve the rezoning the use permit issued by the Planning Commission would not be operative. He also discussed the past practice of the Planning Commission of using a policy resolution to classify as a permitted use in various zones a use which is not listed in one particular district of the Zoning Ordinance even when it is listed as a permitted use in another district. Mr. Johnson recommended that consideration be. given to limiting the use of such policy resolutions to uses which are similar to ones that are listed but which do not appear under any district in the Zoning Ordinance. This classification, he said, should be made on,-:a purely temporary basis and, thereafter, should be incorporated in the Zoning Ordinance in the next amendment proposed to the City Council. Councilman Blake explained that it had been the intention of the City Council and Planning Commission to control the area adjacent to.Cal Poly for high density student housing uses. He agreed that Palm Royal would make a nice hospital, but due to its proximity of Cal Poly the conversion should not be allowed at this time. Councilman Gallagher stated that he felt the hospital was incompatible with student ' housing in the area and its nearness to the College should make it successful for student dormitories. He also felt that the traffic and noise would be a detriment to a hospital use and he stated he-would oppose the rezoning. Councilman Miller stated that he did not accept R. C. Skinner's argument that the City should rezone land so that he.can make a good economic return on his investment. He continued he felt the only consideration the City Council could give was land use and he felt that the land was properly zoned for student housing and that its best use was for student housing and therefore he would oppose the rezoning. Councilman Spring stated he also opposed the rezoning as he felt the use for student housing was best and also felt it was not the City Council's duty to help property owners make a profit out of their property but to make the best use of the land. Mayor Whelchel presented activities +on Campus that he.felt would be a detriment to hospital uses, such as traffic.and noise from sporting events in the area. He also felt that this was a wrong location for a convalescent hospital. On motion of Councilman Blake, seconded by Councilman Gallagher, that the requested rezoning be denied and the use permit for the convalescent hospital be set aside. Motion carried. ' 25. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, reported to the City Council that to date there had been no substantial.change in the status of .the completion of the off site improvements in Tract No. 322. He estimated that it.would cost about $6,000 to complete the tract so it could be accepted as far as the improvements were concerned. He submitted for the Council's information -dates on which he :•has notified the . . developer, R. C. Skinner, and the United California Bank of the deficiencies in this tract. He continued that one of the provisions of acceptance was providing of a drainage . easement from this tract to.the_Creek: City Council Minutes April 1, 1968 Page 6 R. C. Skinner, developer of Tract No. 322, stated that he owns this tract but that the golf course property adjacent to this tract is owned by, someone else and therefore he could not guarantee a drainage easement to the City. He continued that this drainage easement was a subject between himself and the owner of the golf course property which he feels will be settled in court. He notified the City Council that he has completed all the requirements required by the City in the subdivision agreement and further, his bank has $3,600 on file for correction of any deficiencies. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, read for the City Council:the following list of deficiencies: 1. Provision of assurance that the City will have a continuing right to discharge storm drainage waters across the golf course property to the North of the subdivision. 2. Setting of all property corners, tract boundaries, centerline monuments, and submittal of "As Built" plans. 3. Application of a seal coat to those areas-where the seal coat-has-been destroyed. 4.

Skinner then read a letter from United California Bank which stated that funds had been set aside for completion of the off site..improvements within the boundaries of Tract No. 322. Councilman Gallagher stated that he would not agree to accept the improvements in Tract No. 322 until all the work had-been completed satisfactorily and,that.arrange- ments for handling the drainage from this tract had-been taken care of. Councilman Miller agreed that he would require all the improvements in the tract to be up to standard before he would 'accept same, but he was-not sure if he would hold up acceptance of the tract prior to the drainage easement being arranged for. Councilman Spring stated that he did not feel that he could accept this subdivision until all the improvements had been brought to standard And until all-provisions.-.-- of the subdivision agreement had been complied withal D. F. Romero, City Engineer, upon question, explained the past practice of requiring drainage easement in subdivisions. Mayor Whelchel agreed that Tract No. 322 should not be accepted without providing a drainage easement to handle storm waters from the tract. - R. C. Skinner stated that if he understood the Council's discussion, that before the tract would be accepted all the conditions set forth by the City Engineer must be complied with including the provision for a drainge easement from this tract. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, - stated upon question, that in his opinion there was no reasonable alternate route for discharge of drainage waters from this tract. Ji ri 1 City Council Minutes April 1, 1968 Page 7 R. C. Skinner.stated that.based.upon the discussion this evening that the matter . of Tract No. 322 be dropped from the agenda until he can comply with the conditions of the City. J. Kellerman, Building Inspector, asked for Council guidance on whether or not he should continue to.issue. building permits for new construction in :Tract No. 322 when it has never been.accepted by the.City. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained past City policy on the issuing of building permits in uncompleted subdivisions. J. Kellerman was told by the City Council to continue the existing policy on building permits. The.City..Couacil. discussed with Mr.:Skinner.the.possibility of the City cooperating in attempting to acquire -the drainage easement using the City's power of eminent domain with Skinner paying the cost of the acquisition, attorney's fees., etc.. R. C. Skinner answered that he would be very pleased to cooperate with the City and he .would give:his word that he would.pay for the cost involved in acquiring the drainage easement from Tract. No: 322 to that this matter could be resolved to the mutual:satisfaction.of the City. , On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Councilman Blake, the City Attorney was instructed to prepare an agreement between the City and R.
