Richard Taylor, Landscape Architect, presented.to the City Council detailed construction plans and specifications for the development of the Mission Plaza. Mr. Taylor explained the various phases of the project in detail and stated that with the additions and deletions made since the original presentation, the cost was approximately the same. He stated that he felt the project would-cost approximately $140,112 if contracted and completed at one time, but he felt that if this could be done in phases and with the cooperation of local service and fraternal organizations, it would be much less expensive. After discussion with Mr. Taylor, it was moved by Councilman Miller, and seconded by Councilman Gallagher, that the plans.and specifications be approved. Motion carried. 2. F. G. Clason, 345 Buena Vista, appeared before the City Council complaining about the property at 2069 McCollum Street and the annoyance and expense in cleaning up his property becuase of debris from the adjacent property. He stated a large tree is leaning over the fence line and shedding debris into his gutters and downspouts and that large branches are.poking into the roof of his home and that the height of the hedge is becoming intolerable. He asked that the City Council take action to get this matter cleared up. H. Johnson, City Attorney, informed the City Council he had contacted the property 1 owner several months ago, listing the tree and shrub complaints and violations and that the property owner at 2069 McCollum Street had promised him that the hedge would be cut to 6 feet or taken out. The matter was continued to November 18, 1968, pending investigation by the Planning and Building Department and Fire Department on the alleged zoning and health and safety violations. 3. Request from R. Ellen, 735 Mission Street requesting that the City Council grant a temporary encroachment permit for a fence recently constructed by him on Almond Street which is partly in the public right -of -way. R. Ellena stated that the fence was placed on private property as he did not rea- lize the exact property line ,but stated he felt the fence was needed for the protection of his children on his property and he also felt that it was an advan- tage to the neighbors who did not have to look into his yard and garage. He stated that he would agree to remove the fence at any time the City required the placement of curb, gutter and sidewalks. R. Ellena presented a petition signed by adjacent residents and property owners stating that they had no objection to this fence and asking the Council to grant the encroachment permit to Mr. Ellena. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, and R. D. Young, Planning Director, stated they had no objections to granting an encroachment permit but that the City Council was the only one who could grant such a permit. On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Councilman Spring, that a temporary encroachment permit be granted to R. Ellena for a fence in the public right -of -way subject to a standard covenant calling for the property owner to remove the fence upon City request: Motion carried. City Council Minutes November 4, 1968 Page 3 4.. At this time the City Council considered proposed amendments to the garbage disposal Ordinance, in order to up date definitions, etc. H. Johnson, City Attorney, explained the various changes being made and stated that they are changes in definition and procedures and do not affect cost of service to the individual customer. H. Johnson,felt that these changes should be considered by the City Council before any amendments or extensions to the existing garbage collection contract were made. Peter Andre, Attorney for the Garbage Company, stated that he agreed with H. Johnson that the wording in the Ordinance should be cleared up before considering another contract or an extension thereof. On motion of Councilman Blake, seconded by Councilman Spring, the.following Ordinance was introduced and passed to print. Ordinance No. 429, an Ordinance amending the garbage and refuse disposal Ordinance. 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 5. At this time the City Council held a public hearing on Resolution No. 1864, a Resolution of.intention to approve revised taxi meter rates within the City of San Luis Obispo. H. Johnson, City Attorney, presented to the City Council the proposed taxi rates being considered at this time. 1. $ .50 Flag -drop for the first 4/10 mile 2. $ .625 per mile thereafter 3. $ .25 per trip for each passenger in excess of 2. 4.• $6.00 per hour waiting time. 5. Subject to approval, the above rates will.apply to both City and Out -of -City fares. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing open. No one appeared before the City Council. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing closed. The Council Committee that recommended the meter rate increases urged the City Council to approve these rates as they felt it would allow the taxi cab company to retain help and also maintain their equipment. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Spring, the following Resolution was introduced. Resolution No. 1871, a Resolution.revising taxi meter rates. 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 6. At this time the City Council held a public hearing on Resolution No. 1860, a Resolution requiring sidewalk installation on California Boulevard and Hathway Avenue, and also a continuation of the hearing on Resolution No. 1840, a Resolu- tion requiring sidewalk installation on California Boulevard and Hathway Avenue. City Council Minutes November 4, 1968 Page::4 The City Clerk read a list of property owners and property requiring sidewalks.. The City Clerk then read letters from the following property owners protesting the installation of sidewalks on their property and giving reasons therefore. Mrs. Leona Davis 241 Hathway Avenue Dr. A. M. McCapes 215 Hathway Avenue E. L. Glover 400 Hathway Avenue Mrs. Ida A. Morrison 269 Hathway Avenue D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented sketches for the Council showing the properties that are being considered for sidewalk installation and explained the scope of the work to be accomplished on these properties. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing open. Dr. A. M. McCapes, 215 Hathway Avenue, objected to the installation of sidewalks on Hathway Avenue as he felt that they are not needed and he felt that the cost of the improvements to the property owners would outweigh the benefit to the City. He continued that as long as he has lived in this City he has never seen any pedestrian traffic on Hathway as compared with California Boulevard. Further, he suggested that before improving Hathway Avenue with sidewalks he felt that sidewalks should be placed on Fredericks and California as this is where most of the pedestrian traffic is located. ' D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained the construction problems and the improve- ments to be made to the McCapes residence on Hathway Avenue. R. H. Ward, 131 Hathway Avenue, objected to the installation of curb, -gutter and sidewalk due to the topography;,• which would require expensive retaining walls to hold the sidewalks and he felt that the cost would far-outweigh the benefit. D. F. Romero then explained the construction problems involved in improving the Ward property. D. H. Thomsen, 1335 Foothill Boulevard, objected to the installation of sidewalks on the rear of his lot facing Hathway Avenue as he felt it was unnecessary at this time. Further, due to the extreme expense needed to build up the bank in order to hold up the sidewalk, he felt the cost would be excessive. He suggested that the City excuse sidewalk installation along this side of Hathway at this time and the City place fill as it becomes available along Hathway Avenue. When the fill is compacted, he and his neighbors would then place sidewalks at the normal street width. D. F. Romero., explained the construction problem on the Thomsen, Noble and Ward properties and suggested that the street could be narrowed along these properties and still allow the needed traffic lane. B. Fellows, 208 Hathway Street, objected to the installation of curb, gutter and sidewalks on his property due to the cost involved in the installation. Further, he felt that there was no need for these sidewalks at this time and felt that the damage to private property and the cost to the property owners would out- weigh the benefit to the City and urged the City Council to consider this property very seriously. Mrs. Wright, 110 Orange Street, suggested that the City Council not require side- walks on both side of Hathway but only on the north side, as she felt that the trees and yards on that side should be saved. She also felt that the cost would outweigh the benefit. City Council Minutes November 4, 1968 Page 5 Tom Lee, 360 Hathway, objected to-the installation of sidewalks at this time due to the cost involved to the property owners and the small benefit to the City. D. F. Romero, presented to the City Council a sketch presenting a solution to the Gates' driveway problem at 14 Hathway Avenue and the Andreini driveway problem at 12 Hathway. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing closed.. ' Councilman Shrine stated_that after studying this area very carefully since the last meeting, he felt that sidewalks were not needed on Hathway.at this time, but that sidewalks should be placed on California Boulevard as there are more students walking to Cal Poly on California than on Hathway. Councilman Blake stated that it has been the City's policy to place sidewalks along all streets leading to schools or other areas of public assembly and he felt that it was now Hathway's turn to put in these sidewalks so that the students going to school could walk in safety. Councilman Blake continued that, while.he agreed that it would place some incon- venience on the property owners, he felt that the benefit to the City would be greater. Councilman Miller explained the policy of the City in establishing procedures for the installation of sidewalks in the City and continued that studies had been made by a citizen's committee who then made their recommendations to the City Council and that since that time the.City Council has settled on a policy for the installa- tion of curb, gutters, and sidewalks throughout the City on this priority basis. He stated that once the City had embarked on this program for the community, he did not feel that the Council should now stop the program and change the priority for sidewalk installation, and stated that he would go along with requiring side- walks on Hathway Avenue. Councilman Gallagher stated that he felt that,there was no need for the installa- tion of sidewalks on Hathway Avenue at this time but felt that California Boulevard should be required to install sidewalks because of the students walking to school. Mayor Whelchel stated that he felt that before he would require sidewalks on Hathway Avenue, he would like them placed on California Boulevard and Kentucky Street, as he felt that they were not needed on Hathway at this time. Councilman.Blake objected to the City Council dropping the priority schedule for Hathway Street as he felt the Council should continue with its program of install- ing sidewalks in accordance with the priority list but stated he would also go along with the installation of sidewalks on California and Kentucky. On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Councilman Blake, a resolution was introduced requiring sidewalks on Hathway Avenue. The resolution was lost on the following roll call vote: AYES: Emmons Blake, Donald Q. Miller NOES: Frank Gallagher, Arthur F. Spring, Clell W. Whelchel_ ABSENT: None On motion of Mayor Whelchel, seconded by Councilman Spring, that the City Council order installation of sidewalks on.California Boulevard. Motion carried. 7. At this time the City Council held a public hearing to consider the elimination of parking limits in the vicinity of Tropicana Student Housing on Broad Street. The City Clerk presented a petition signed by thirty -four residents and property owners urging that the City Council'not change the two -hour parking limit as suggested but leave it as is. City Council Minutes November 4, 1968 Page 6 Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing open. Stan Forden, 89 N. Broad Street, urged the City Council to make no change in the parking limit in the area as he feels that it has been a God send to-the property owners and also to the students. Marian Maxwell, 832 Meinecke Street, urged the City Council to continue the two - hour parking limit in the area.. Mrs. Ballard, 81 N. Broad Street, asked the Council to keep the two -hour parking limit in the area. H. Tartaglia, 70 N. Broad Street, urged the retention of the present two -hour parking limit. Mayor Whelchel declared the public hearing closed. No change by the City Council to the parking limitations. 9:20 P.M. Mayor Whelchel declared a recess. 9:30.P.M. meeting recovened with all Councilmen present. 8. Traffic Committee Report of October 25, 1968. 68 -9 -11T (continued). The Traffic Committee has reconsidered its recommendation for time limit zones on either side of the exit driveway from the newly completed Parking Lot #11 and recommends that two thirty- minute green spaces continue as had existed prior to the start of the construction. If the Council concurs with this recommendation, no further action is needed. 68 -10 -1C The Traffic Committee has reviewed the complaint of Mr. Rirkeby at 33 Chorro Street regarding the patchwork appearance of the sidewalk and curb recently installed. It was the concensus of the Traffic Committee that the , improvements were properly installed and did not create an unattractive appearance. The Traffic Committee also recommends that the City not permit a deviation from normal policy regarding a uniform sidewalk-grade from the curb to the property line. Therefore, if Mr. Rirkeby wishes to eliminate the parkway he should remove the existing sidewalk to provide an improvement meeting minimum City standards. 68 -10 -2T The Traffic Committee in an effort to provide freer flow and eliminate as many conflicts as possible has studied the desirability of a two -way left turn lane in Monterey Street between intersecting streets from Santa Rosa Street to' Pepper Street. It would appear that this improvement would provide considerable traffic benefit. Therefore, if the Council has no objections, the Public Works Department will proceed with the installation. 68 -10 -6C As requested by the City Council, the Traffic Committee reviewed the possibility of construction of a•redrock walkway along the Northerly side of Madonna Road between the Madonna Inn entrance and the Laguna Lake outlet structure. It was the feeling of the Committee that such an installation was feasible and would serve a useful purpose. Therefore,-if the Council has no objections, the Public Works Department will commence construction of this walkway in the very near future. The recommendations of the Traffic Committee were accepted. 68 -10 -3T The Traffic Committee has received a request from the owner of the property at 1226 Osos Street for a red curbing. It is the feeling of the Committee that a better service to the barber shop and community would be pro- vided by a 36 minute green zone and the Traffic Committee so recommends. 68 -10 -4T The Traffic Committee has received a request from B. & R. Electric at 778 Francis Street for a truck loading zone. It would appear that the large number of deliveries for this business would warrant such a zone and the Traffic Committee so recommends. City Council Minutes November 4, 1968 Page 7 68 -10 -5T The Traffic Committee has received a request for a yield sign on Gulf - Street at Atascadero Street. It was-the feeling of the Committee that a yield sign is not the proper application for this intersection, therefore, the Traffic Committee recommends that a stop sign be installed on Gulf Street at Atascadero Street. On motion of Councilman Blake, seconded by Councilman Gallagher, the following resolution was introduced. Resolution No. 1872, a Resolution establishing a 1 green zone on Osos Street; a loading zone on Francis Street; and a stop sign on Gulf Street. 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 Carl Lownes, 166 Foothill Boulevard, objected to the City Council on changes made To the traffic lanes in front of his property at 166 Foothill Boulevard. He stated that moving of the center line to allow two lanes of traffic on the south side of Foothill is dangerous to his property as it reduces traffic to one lane, in front of his property. He suggested that the City re =paint the center line in the center of Foothill which would allow logical use of the street and parking on both sides of the street. D.F. Romero, City Engineer, explained the reason for placing the traffic-lanes-on Foothill Boulevard. He pointed out that the lane striping suggested by Mr. Lownes 1 would create undesirable swings in the centerline alignment. 9. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented a speed zone study on Foothill Boule- vard from Broad Street to the West City limits. He concluded from the study that the present 25 mph speed limit was unrealistic and was being ignored by virtually all motorists using the street. He continued that using normal State criteria, the new speed limit should be 40 mph, but due to other factors, he recommends to the City Council that the speed limit on Foothill Boulevard be increased to 35 mph. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Blake, the following Ordinance was introduced and passed to print. Ordinance No. 431, an Ordinance increasing the speed limit on Foothill Boulevard to 35 mph. 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 ' 10. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented a development agreement between the City and Accent Enterprises, Inc. for development of Fiesta Mobile Home Park on the Faulstich property. He listed the following conditions for development of the park and recommended approval by the Council. 1: The Developer shall install curb, gutter and sidewalk on Higuera Street and bring the portion to be widened to subgrade. The City will install base and paving on the portion to be widened. City Council Minutes November 4, 1968 Page 8 2. Widening needed for .Prado Road and Higuera Street and the drainage easement shall be offered for dedication at this time. The City will accept these parcels upon satisfactory completion of improvements designated on the plans and specifi- cations. 3. The City will initiate proceedings to abandon those portions of Higuera Street surplus to the requirements shown on the Higuera Street Official Building Setback Line maps. 4. The Developer shall improve Prado Road (Co. Rd. 8107) between lots 49 and 67 with curb and gutter, full depth base and prime coat for a full half street width. The City will pay $3700.00 to cover excess coat beyond fully improving z of a local street along this .frontage. Payment to be made upon completion of the improvement and acceptance by the City. 5. The Developer shall pay the City the sum of $4,128.60 (11.796 ac. at $350 /ac.) water fees at the time of connection to the utility. This fee does not cover the property owned by Developer south of Prado Road. 6. The City will pay, upon satisfactory completion of the improvement, for the difference in cost between an 8 inch and a 12 inch water main to be installed in Prado Road from Higuera Street to Lot 69. 7. The developer shall be entitled to such reimbursements as are specified under Section 7410.6 of the Municipal Code. On motion of Councilman Gallagher, seconded by Councilman Miller, the City Council approved the development agreement subject to-the conditions listed, and the Mayor was authorized to sign the agreement on behalf of the City. 11. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, discussed with the City Council preliminary plans for improvements and signalization for Madonna Road. D. F. Romero reported on his discussions with the Division of Highways, stating ' that preliminary information indicates that the sole cost of the signal installa- tion and channelization would be borne by the State with construction scheduled for the summer of 1969. He stated that temporary channelization was needed imme- diately. The matter of temporary channelization was referred to the Traffic Committee for investigation. 12. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, presented a list of properties, dated November 4, 1968, for curb, gutter and sidewalks under the provisions of Ordinance No. 2579 and explained the work to be accomplished on.the properties listed on Sydney, Flora and Munoz Streets. On motion of Councilman Miller, seconded by Councilman Gallagher, the City Engineer was authorized to proceed with public hearings on the properties listed. 13. H. Johnson, City Attorney, reported to the City Council on meetings with owners of the wrecking and towing companies regarding the removal of abandoned vehicles from the City of San Luis Obispo. H. Johnson continued that there has apparently been a misunderstanding by both the City and the bidders as to the type of vehicles to be removed from the City. This involved the distinction between junked vehicles with $100.00 or less value and those vehicles worth $100.00 or more. He suggested that the City Council authorize the re- advertisement for bids for removal of vehicles with conditions more clearly spelled out as to types of vehicles to be removed. The matter was continued to November 18, 1968. 14. At this time the City Council considered the final passage of Ordinance No. 425, an Ordinance establishing procedures for the abatement and removal as public nuisance of abandoned, wrecked, dismantled or inoperative vehicles or parts thereof from private or public property.
