Communication from the Shell Oil Company requesting an encroachment permit from the City Council for driveway purposes for access to a proposed service station across City property lying between the Madonna Inn Access Road and the Martinelli property on Madonna Road. Report of recommendation from the City Planning Commission recommending that a use permit be granted to the Shell Oil Company for a service station at the above' location subject to the granting of an encroachment permit by the City Council for use of the City owned property to be incorporated with the driveways for the-station. The City Clerk presented a copy of the City Council Minutes of March 18, 1968 at which time the City Council had taken action to deny access to the proposed service. station site over City property.' City Council Minutes June 17, 1968 Page 2 Communication from H. C. Murphy, on-behalf of A. Madonna; protesting the issuance of a use permit to the Shell Oil Company and access over City-property for the, service station. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained the new plan by the Shell Oil Company for access to their service station site over City owned property. He explained that driveway locations had been modified to correspond with suggestions presented by . ' the City Council and staff and that, in his opinion, the proposal by Shell Oil represented the best possible traffic solution so far as the City was concerned if a service.station was to be located at this site. Rick Norman, Shell Oil Company Engineer, urged the City Council to grant his firm the encroachment permit to incorporate the driveways for their new service station over City property. He continued that it was his understanding that prior Council action on this issue was that the Oil Company could resubmit an application showing how they were going to handle the egress and ingress to the station. He stated his company would do anything within reason to acquire this encroachment permit over City owned land so. that they could develop the station. He stated that those portions of the property not used by his company would be beautifully landscaped and would be an attractive place for visitors to the City. He continued that one driveway would be used only as an entrance to the station and one driveway on City property would.be used for an exit..onto the Madonna Inn Access Road. He felt this request of the Shell Oil Company was fair in order to adequately serve the traveling public. He also asked that if the permit were issued that it be issued for a long enough period to amortize the cost of the station development. H. Murphy, Attorney representing A. Madonna, stated he objected to the granting of an encroachment to Shell Oil - Company over City property as he felt that the traffic problem that would be created by placing the entrance and exit to the station close to the Madonna Inn Access Road would be intolerable. He felt this would be a definite detriment to the Madonna Inn. He suggested that the Shell Oil Company should place their driveways on their own property or leased property-and not plan to use.public property for this purpose. He felt if the driveway entrances were moved further west on Madonna Road away from the intersection with the Inn Access Road that the potential traffic hazards would be reduced. H. Johnson, City Attorney, asked Mr. Murphy if the e: Madonna.protest letter were both- against the use permit and the encroachment permit. H. Murphy:stated that his appeal on behalf of the property owner was'for both permits so that the City Council can consider the entire-proposal and development. H. Johnson stated if this were the case, then this matter must be set for public hearing after publication of a notice: Councilman Blake asked the Shell Oil Company representatives if this land were not owned by the City but by a private party, would they still continue their proposed development of the service station, as he felt that 20% of the proposed service ' station site is on City owned property. A. Southon, Shell Oil Company Representative, stated that if this property were owned by private persons, they would try to make an arrangement for access or for mutual development of the property. If they could not acquire this agreement then they would.abandon the idea of placing a station at this location. The City Council discussed with John Kuden, Real Estate representative for Martinelli, the possibility of seeing a plan showing the complete development of the Martinelli property with access to the Madonna Road. They felt that the relationship between each use could then be studied including combined uses of driveway entrances and exits -to the various facilities. City Council Minutes June 17, 1968 Page 3 A. Southon, Shell Oil Company, asked the City Council if his understanding was correct that the City Council was going to hold another public hearing on the use permit for this service station. He stated he felt that the action of the Planning Commission was final and that the City Council did not have the right to hold another hearing when the Planning Commission had already taken final action. H. Johnson, City.Attorney, again explained the provisions of the Municipal Code dealing with appeals of actions taken by the City Planning Commission. - 1 On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Mayor Whelchel, that the City Council grant the encroachment permit over City owned property to Shell Oil Company in accordance with the plans submitted. Councilman Blake objected to the granting of an encroachment permit to this Company because he felt that 20% of the service station area would be on City property, which is owned by the public and did not feel that giving it to a private firm for development was a proper action for the City Council. A. Southon, Shell Oil Company Representative, stated that the plans for the service station and for the adjacent motel have proceeded to such an extent that it would be impossible for them to make any adjustments to their development and they would have to proceed with the use of City land. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, stated that this was correct as the motel site would be unable to give up land to enlarge the service station location as the rough grading has already been accomplished and he did not feel it could be changed. John Ruden, Real Estate Representative for Martinelli, stated that the Shell Oil Company has a recording letter from Martinelli and it could not be enlarged under any conditions. Councilman Spring stated that he would not approve this request until the master 1 plan that had been asked for of the property owner. showing the various uses and entrances to the Martinelli property had been presented. The motion was lost on the following roll call vote: AYES: Clell W. Whelchel, Donald Q. Miller NOES: Emmons Blake, Frank Gallagher, Arthur F.

Communication from Stone and Youngberg, Financial Consultants, citing legal obstacles to removing parking meters within the limits of Parking District No. L. B. Idler, President of the Downtown Association, stated that regardless of the legal obstacles and the problems of removing the parking meters, he felt his organization wanted the meters removed from the streets and parking lots for the continued health of the business district. - R. D. Miller, Administrative Officer; explained that in order to use Special Assessment procedures for the refunding of the parking district bonds, enabling legislation would have to be enacted by the State. B. Idler stated he was sure that the property owners and businessmen would assume - any additional costs in order to eliminate the meters. It was suggested by the City Council that before..the City proceeds with this legislation request that an informal petition of 60 -65% of the downtown property owners ask the City Council to take this step and stating that they would assume any cost involved. The matter was continued pending receipt of a petition from the downtown property owners. 4. Communication from the Division of Highways notifying the City Council that the State will participate to the extent of 25% in the signal system being planned at the intersection of Highway 101 and the off ramps with Madonna Road was ordered received and filed. 6. At this time the City Council held a public hearing on the proposed 1968/69 City Budget. R. D. Miller, Administrative Officer, presented a report summarizing the changes made by the City Council during the nine study sessions on the budget. He stated that the proposed budget now totals $3.92 Million dollars after the additions made by the City Council including salary increases. Marcie Barnett appeared before the City Council asking for financial support of the City -for their aircraft entry in the Powder Puff Derby to be held this year. She stated that they were also receiving help from the merchants and businessmen of the community. Donald Q. Miller stated he objected to this request as he felt it was not the duty of the City to spend taxpayer's money on this type of project.. On motion of Councilman Miller that.the request be denied. Motion died.for - lack of a second. City Council Minutes June 17, 1968 Page 5 On motion of Councilman Spring, seconded by Councilman Gallagher, that the City appropriate $200 from the advertising fund as approved for this project. Motion carried. Councilman Miller voting no.. R. D. Miller, Administrative Officer, brought to the Council's attention the matter of the purchase of the pavement line marking machine for the Public Work Department. R. D. Miller stated the estimated cost would be $9,500. Mayor Whelchel stated that after looking at the brochures on these machines he felt the City should buy the larger striper as it would have a larger paint and compressor carrying capacity. He felt this would be more economical for the City. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, stated that his department would prefer the larger machine at $10,500 but that the smaller one would do an acceptable job. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Spring, that the City purchase the Model $10,500 pavement marking machine. Motion carried. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented for the Council's consideration the following priorities for street work to be completed this summer. Under Priority A, Select Street System, he recommends that the City Council accept Priority No. 2,-Augusta Street, Johnson Avenue from the end of Bishop Street to San Carlos and under Priority B, Local Streets, Items 1 through 6, San Carlos Street, Helena Street, Parker Street, Mission Street, Hill Street, Center Street, Francis Street, Victoria Street, Jaycee Drive, Wilson Street,: Grove Street, Hillcrest Street, Park Street, Phillips Street, Garfield Street. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Blake, the priorities recommended by the City Engineer were approved and authority to go for bids as soon as possible. Motion carried. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing open on the 1968/69 budget. P. Landell, President of the CEA, appeared before the City Council and objected to the adoption of the current budget as he feels the City•Employees' salaries and fringe benefits were not adequately considered by the City Council and that the compromise between the CEA Salary Request and the Administrative Officer's recommendation was not adequate and would be unfair to the City employees as the salaries were not keeping up with today's current salary rates paid in comparison with other cities. The CEA wished to go on record on this matter. Wes Conner, Member of the Park and Recreation Commission, presented a recommendation from the Park and Recreation Commission requesting that two additional grounds- keepers be employed for the Park and Recreation Department, that a full time female recreational supervisor be employed, that a half time secretary be employed for the Department and that the title of Mr. Stockton be changed from Park and Recreation Supervisor to Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation. R. D. Miller, Administrative Officer, explained that due to the limited amount of funds available to the Park and Recreation Department that the additional personnel. requested was impossible at this time but as existing values in the City increased these recommendations could be considered. He informed Mr. Conner that a full time recreational supervisor (female) was proposed in the new budget and further that as the Park and Recreation Department is being reorganized, the title and classification of Mr." Stockton would be reconsidered after the reorganization. L. Wilson, Park Foreman, stated that he felt that two more groundskeepers would be needed just to keep up with the work in the City Parks at the present time and further he felt that more equipment would be needed by the Park Department if a good job was to be done.. Mayor Whelchel declared the.public hearing closed. The City Council then discussed the need or desirability of placing gunite in the Cuesta Drive drainage channel as recommended by the City Engineer. 1 1 City Council Minutes June 17, 1968 Page 6 D. F. Romero, City Engineer, stated that at the request of the City Council almost all the property owners along the drainage channel had been contacted and they stated if the City would gunite the channel, they would fence their property to protect the channel and keep children from playing in it. 'He explained that gunite lining of the storm drainage channel would provide the least expensive permanent solution to the'drainage problem and that this could be constructed with relatively little inconvenience to the property owners. Donald Q. Miller questioned various items in the proposed budget and stated he would vote against adoption of the 1968/69 budget. (a) He objected to the amount of money set aside for advertising as he felt these funds could be better used in the City-to develop parks; plant street trees and other things to make this a beautiful City. (b) He also objected to the City support of the Chamber of Commerce as he feels the money is not being properly used to build up the community and felt that the Chamber of Commerce would be a stronger organization if they would raise their own funds for operation and not depend on the public funds of the City. (c) He felt that the City employees were not adequately considered in their salary request. He agreed that the salaries should catch up with comparable cities and at least a 3% increase in cost of living should be added to the approved salary adjustments. (d) Councilman Miller objected to the hiring of outside consultants to make studies for the City. He gave as an example the study prepared by Rafferty and Company for the Civic and-Fine Arts Association which he felt was poorly prepared and written. Councilman Blake stated he felt the City Council had studied and considered the ' request for the advertising in detail and felt that the advertising program has been good for the-City and its business people. He felt that the CEA had received fair hearings and that the salary increases granted were fair and adequate. Councilman Spring agreed that the salary, adjustments made by the City were fair and in line with the study made by the Administrative Officer and also that all the items in the budget had been considered very much in detail by the City Council. Councilman Gallagher stated he felt the employees had received a good salary-increase and that this proposed budget even though much higher than past budgets, would continue the $1.50 tax rate. Councilman Miller moved that the budget not be approved. Motion died.for lack of•a second. On motion of Councilman Blake, seconded by Councilman Spring, that the 1968/69 budget be approved. Motion carried on the following roll call vote: AYES: Emmons Blake, Frank Gallagher, Arthur F. Spring, Clell W. Whelchel NOES: Donald Q. Miller ABSENT: None 7, 8 and 9. Mayor Whelchel stated that the City Council should consider agenda items 7, 8 and 9 together as they all involve the Mission Plaza Development. Item . No. 7, dealing with the plans and specifications for the Monterey Alignment, Item No. 8, petition from the merchants and property owners supporting the City Council's plan to realign and Item No. 9, request from the Warden property for the return of their property granted to the City for easement purposes. City Council Minutes June 17, 1968 Page 7 The Mayor continued that on Friday, June 14, 1968, a petition for an initiative . ordinance was filed with the City opposing the realignment of Monterey Street and requesting that the street be closed. He continued he did not know what the next step that the City Council could or should take at this time in view of the petition that was filed. He asked H.-Johnson, City Attorney, for clarification of the Council's options at this time. H. Johnson, City Attorney, explained options open to the City Council at this point in view of the petition having been filed demanding the closing of Monterey Street. Since the petition apparently does not contain a request that the proposed ordinance be submitted to the people at a special election, the ordinance, if not passed' without change by the City Council, in compliance with Section 4012 of the Elections Code should be submitted to the voters at the next regular municipal election in the Spring. It is generally held that a legislative body when presented with such a petition signed by the requisite number of voters is purely a ministerial act, namely to proceed to call an election. A writ of mandate could be sought by the petitioners if this is not done, and, in like manner, opponents of the petition could seek to challenge the ballot measure by seeking injunctive relief to keep the initiative ordinance off the ballot. George Andre, Chairman of the Monterey Street Closing Committee, explained to the City Council that the intent of the initiative petitioners was not to request abandonment of Monterey Street but only to close Monterey Street to allow vehicular traffic, but to allow free flow of pedestrians on the street. H. Johnson, City Attorney, stated that Item No. 8, the petition signed by merchants and property owners, was not an official initiative petition for the adoption of an ordinance, but only a petition informing the City Council of their support for the realignment plan. H. Lacterman, property owner, spoke in favor of the City Council plan to realign Monterey Street and develop the' Mission Plaza and urged the City Council to proceed. F. Warden, property owner, objected to the tactics of the people who worked on the initiative petition to close Monterey Street. He listed several erroneous claims made by the supporters of the initiative petition. He continued that if the street is closed he considers the easement granted by him to the City for walkway purposes to the rear of the stores null and void and would expect the City Council to deed these easements back to him and his family. He urged the City Council to proceed with the realignment of Monterey Street and the Mission Plaza Plan. Councilman Blake said he doubted whether the City had any legal obligation to give back the easement to Mr. Warden. Mr. Schlimmer stated that the closing of Monterey Street would be the worst thing that could happen to the tenants and operator of the Mission Mall building and begged the Council to proceed with the Mission Plaza Development. Dr. George Dunklee stated he felt that many of the signers of the petition did not know what they were signing and that many of the people carrying the petition misrepresented the action to be taken if the initiative ordinance were adopted and urged that the City Council proceed with their previously approved plans. George Andre stated that he was sorry f there was an misunderstanding with the rY Y S intent of the petition because the only thing the petitioners wanted done was to close Monterey Street to vehicular traffic from Chorro Street to the Warden Bridge. R. L. Graves stated that the interest of the petitioners was for the good of the City and that the petitioners felt the only way to make their feelings known to the City Council was to present the City Council with an initiative ordinance so that the voters of the City could decide the issue. City Council Minutes June 17, 1968 Page 8 E. Graves objected to any development of the Mission Plaza at-public expense unless all the voters of the City approve the plan and expenditures. L. Nicholson supports the intent of the initiative petition to close Monterey Street, to develop a bigger and better Mission Plaza which would attract tourists to the community to visit this little spot of beauty and felt this development would be a boom to businesses in the.area. On motion of Councilman Blake, seconded by Councilman Gallagher, that Items 7, 8 and 9 be continued until the petition has been checked by the City Clerk. Motion carried. Mayor Whelchel and Councilman Miller voting no. 9:40 P.M. Mayor Whelchel declared a recess. 9:50 P.M. the meeting reconvened with all Councilmen present. 10. Architect, John Ross, reviewed for the Council's.information the plans and specifications for the Police Facility and stated they could go to bid as soon as the City Council Committee and Police Chief had reviewed the final plans and specifications. It was the Council's decision that as soon as the Committee has approved the plans that it go to bid with opening on July 22, 1968. 11. Communication from E. L. Rodgers, Police Chief, notifying the City Council that due to the contruct.ion and size of the new Police Facility he does not feel it. will be practical to allow private burglar alarm systems to be installed in the Communications Center and felt this should be handled by private enterprise. The City Council discussed this matter with Mr. Lingle of Automatic Alarms and. due ' to the absence of the Police Chief the matter was continued to July 1, 1968 and the City Clerk was to so notify all burglar alarm companies in the City. 12. J. Stockton, Park and Recreation Supervisor, presented for the Council's consideration plans and specifications for the installation of the sprinkler system on the City Hall Grounds. J. Stockton stated that the materials were on hand and that bids were only being called for labor to place the system. He estimated the cost would be $300.00. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Miller, the Park Department was authorized to call for bids for installation of the sprinkler system at the City Hall. Motion carried. 13. Memorandum from the City Engineer regarding tree planting requirements within subdivisions and replacement of trees within subdivisions at City expense was ordered received and filed. 14.

The Traffic Committee has looked at the request of Out Restaurant for additional green zones in the area and we twelve - minute zone in front of Lela's should be changed to a and that two additional thirty- six - minute green zones should east side of Broad north of the present green zone and the c have to be cleared with the State. Lela's Chicken Take feel that the existing thirty- six - minute zone be established on the rosswalk. This will 1 1 1 City Council Minutes June 17, 1968 Page 10 68 -6 -4T. Now that the signals are in on Buchon we feel that traffic should be stopped on Chorro instead of Buchon and we.recommend that a four -way stop be put in for the time being and in a couple of months that the two stops on Buchon be eliminated. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, pointed out that Chorro Street traffic was three times as great as Buchon Street traffic. 68 -6 -5T. The Traffic Committee has received a request from Bob's Car Wash for the parking meter space between the Richfield Service Station and the car wash to be changed from a two -hour metered space to a twelve- minute space, and we so recommend. 68 -6 -7T. The Public Works Department is doing some slight widening on the south side of Foothill between the Thrifty Drug Store and the San Luis Towers apartment house. However, to make full use of the right of way for two travelled lanes in each direction, it would be necessary to establish a no- parking zone between the Thrifty Drug Store and the San Luis Towers apartment house, and we so recommend. On motion.of.Councilman Blake, . seconded by Councilman Spring, the following resolution was introduced. Resolution No. 1824, a resolution establishing thirty - six minute green zones on South Broad Street; establishing a twelve - minute green zone on Marsh Street; establishing a stop sign on Chorro Street and rescinding a stop sign on Buchon Street; and establishing a No- Parking zone on the south side of Foothill Boulevard.

The Traffic Committee has taken a look at the intersection of Johnson and Bishop and the possible need for a four -way stop at that location. We do not feel that stop signs on Johnson could be justified because the through- street traffic outnumbers the side - street traffic by such a wide margin. 68 -6 -3T. With the heavier traffic flows this summer and pending the widening of Santa Rosa between Palm and Walnut on the west side, we feel that all parking should be restricted in these blocks on the west side and suggest that a pub.lic hearing be scheduled on the matter. Accepted by the City Council. 24. Communication from the Pacific.Telephone and Telegraph Company notifying the.
