David Williamson, Assistant Administrative Officer, suggested that ' section 2 of the proposed ordinance be amended to clarify fraternity and fraternity houses within the listed zones. He felt that section 2 of the ordinance did not clarify this point. A. J. Shaw, Jr., City Attorney, stated that in his opinion if the Council wished to change the wording in section 2 that it would not require re- advertisement, as he felt it was a clarification of the intent rather than the meaning of the section as proposed by the City Council. Councilman Gurnee stated that he was opposed to the suggested change in wording in section 2 as he felt the new wording dis- criminated against student housing and fraternities. He felt the ordinance whould be re- worded in order to clarify any possible confusion that would lead to discrimination against the student. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing open.

NOES: None ABSENT: None 4. The City Council continued their discussion of re- wording and amendments to the proposed "Open Space Plan as presented to the City Council by the Planning Commission. Mayor Schwartz suggested that the Council might first open the meeting for public input, after which time the meeting could then be closed and the City Council could discuss the best method of reviewing the Open Space Plan in order to have it.finally approved and adopted by the Council. Mavor Schwartz opened the meeting for discussio to public input. Mrs. GlennaDeane Dovey, President of the League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo, presented a statement on behalf of the League of.Women Voters reaffirming the League's position on open space, and they would now like to update their initial statement in light of the proposed amendments to the plan. She continued that members of the League of Women Voters supported the preservation of scenic and open spaces in our City by either outright acquisitions, easements, or similar pro- grams. The League felt that the agricultural lands in and around San Luis Obispo constituted an important open space and scenic resource and felt that Goal 3, page 22 of the original plan should be retained by the City Council. She continued that the League of Women Voters realized that methods of implementing planning decisions 1 J 1 City Council Minutes February 19, 1974 Page 3 were constantly changing and that the City might well have to explore several avenues of effectuation to reach any single stated goal. They felt that there were great developmental pressures upon agricultural lands in and near San Luis Obispo, and the League therefore supported all feasible methods of maintaining these lands. They also asked the ' City Council to support the designation of Lopez Canyon as a federal wilderness area, and to protect the Morros as they were a unique scenic and open space feature of the County and deserved to be preserved.. In conclusion, she stated on behalf of the League of Women Voters that the Council should be_ commended for taking the time for serious evaluation and discussion of a document so important to the future of the community. They now urged the City Council to adopt the Open Space Element with the amendments which would recognize the con- cerns that had been outlined and to charge the Planning Commission with the task of preparing a comprehensive program of implementation as soon as possible. Robert Barrows, Meinecke Street,.spoke in favor of the Open Space Plan and he urged protection of the agricultural lands in and around the City of San Luis Obispo. Howard Basinger supported the City acquiring the Laguna Lake Golf Course as an open space for the community. 'James Maino, farmer in.the southeast edge of the City, urged the City Council to be aware of the benefits open space gave to an urban area, and urged the Council to support the farmers . before the County Board of Supervisors in their attempt.to lower the ag- preserve limits to a ten year contract rather than the present 20 -year preserve contract. ' Mayor Schwartz closed the meeting to public participation and limited discussion to the City Council and staff. The City Council then discussed what would be the best way to go over the Open Space Plan with the amendments and suggestions made by Councilman Gurnee and Councilman Norris so that it could finally be adopted by the Council. Councilman Norris stated that-he felt that except for a few major items he was ready to proceed with adoption of the plan. Councilman Gurnee stated that he disagreed and that the Council should go through the plan line by line and come to a decision on each principle as he felt that this. plan was important to the future development of the City. Councilman Brown .felt that he would rather continue this to a future study session so that the plan could be completely and competently reviewed and not at a normal public meeting of the City Council. Councilman Graham agreed that the Open Space Plan should be considered at a future study session prior to final adoption. Mayor Schwartz felt the staff should take the Planning Commission's report on the open space, Mr. Norris' comments and Mr. Gurnee's statements, place them together and then allow the City Council to pick and choose which section they wished to adopt and.include in the Open Space Plan. Councilman Gurnee again urged the Council to do the work on the plan themselves and not expect the staff to do the re -write and bring back a package for adoption. It was moved by Councilman Graham that the City Council set a study City Council Minutes February 19, 1974 Page 4 session starting at noon at a date acceptable to the City Council,. continuing through the afternoon to try and resolve the Council differences on the Open Space Plan. The motion was lost for lack of a second. Councilman Gurnee, upon question of the Mayor, stated that.he wished the report to be studied in detail by the City Council and.he listed items that should be considered as the preface of:the report, defi.nitions, objectives of the report,_ the agricultural .lands, the recreational lands to include a policy statement, the recognition of hazard areas, priorities for open space acquisition, consideration of!limited development below elevation 400, and a program of implementation, such as purchase lease back, the land bank program, land exchange, tax incentive, tax increment financing, and deed restrictions and finally an in -depth discussion of methods for financing of the open.space. He felt these were areas that the City Council must look to and make decisions. Mayor Schwartz felt the Council was getting nowhere with this proposal and asked the Council to allow him to work with the City staff to work out details and bring back to the City Council a draft that would contain all comments made by the Council, staff and public to date for final consideration. On motion of Councilman Norris, seconded by Councilman Brown, the Mayor was authorized to work with the staff and.prepare a consolidated open space report including all comments to date for future discussion by the City Council. Motion carried, Councilman Gurnee voting no. 4A. Communication from D. J. Van Harreveld, Chairman, Parks and Recreation Commission, recommending that the City Council consider taking over the operation of the golf course on Los Osos Valley Road by the Recreation Department but they felt that the City should.arrange a short -term lease between the City and the property owners so that sufficient time would be made to study the proposal. and the feasibility of either operating or purchasing the area as a golf course. 4B. Communication from the City Attorney stating that he had been in contact with representatives of the Rockwell Federal Credit Union, owners of the property on which the Laguna Lake Golf. Course was located, stating that they would consider an offer from the City to lease the golf course for six months in order to undertake a stu- dy on the feasibility of purchasing said course. 4C. Communication from Francis C. Mueller, resident, Laguna Lake Mobile Homes Park ,urging; the City to take over the operation of the Laguna Lake Golf Course as the present lessor was giving up the lease March I, 1974. 4D. Petition signed by 517 residents in the Laguna Lake area, as follows: "We, the residents living in. -the general area of the Laguna Golf Course, petition the City of San Luis Obispo City Council to amend the City , General Plan and map to designate the property known as Laguna Golf Course as recreational open space for the purpose of recreational development for the citizens of San Luis Obiso." Bill Bailey, Royal Way, spoke on behalf of the petitioners who wished the City Council to preserve the Laguna Lake Golf Course as a.recreational open space either as a City operated golf course as a new park or just simply as open space. City Council Minutes February 19, 1974 Page 5 8:15 P.M. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, arrived and tool•: his place at the staff table. Mayor Schwartz reviewed the legal.steps necessary to amend the General Plan as requested'by the petitioners. s.: Francis Mueller appeared on behalf of his letter asking the City Council to acquire the Laguna Lake Golf Course. A. J. Shaw, Jr., City Attorney, presented the proposed lease with the Rockwell'Federal Credit Union for City lease of the Laguna Golf Giourse. Howard Besinaer, Royal Way, spoke in support of the City keeping the golf course an open space either by outright City purchase or by zoning. He volunteered to help the City negotiate with the property owners% Bob Schroeder, Cucaracha Court, spoke in support of keeping the Laguna Golf Course either as a City operated recreational golf course or as open space zoning. Jerry Punches, Royal Way, was .in support of the City acquiring the pre- sent Laguna Golf Course and either operating it as a golf course or using it as a park. He felt, that the Laguna area needed an open space on that side of Los Osos Road for recreation by the residents and he felt that the City had made no attempt to develop open space or recreational facilities for the citizens and taxpayers in this newly developed area. He personally was not interested in keeping the golf course'as such, but just wanted the open space for his kids to play in. Mrs. Marilyn Cooper, Royal Court, urged continued operation of the golf course adjacent to Royal Way to be developed for open space and recreation. Dewitt F. Sampson, 1326 Oceanaire Drive, was in support of keeping the golf ;=urse lin-operat:i6w;,•esi for the recreational use of the residents of the area. He felt that'.a park and golf course were compatible. 4. James Clark, Fairview Drive, spoke in support of contin- uing the open space recreational area as now presently used for a golf course. He was not particularly interested in the golf course but was interested in the open space. George Hedley, Operator, Laguna Lake Mobile Home. Park, spoke in support of keeping the golf course either as a golf course or open space parka He felt the City should make a decision now and not wait until after the course was closed. The City Council discussed the matter brought to them to purchase or acquire the interest in the Laguna Lake Golf Course and either continue the golf course or operate it as open space. Councilman Gurnee stated that he was in support of the City acquiring the golf course property for open space either as a park, golf course or just plain open spacer Councilman Norris stated that he was not in favor of the City acquiring the land at this time without further study, as he felt there were other needs scheduled by the City Council in the Capita- '-mprovement Budget for public funds for recreational development. He listed Sinsheimer Park, tennis courts, swimming pools, etc. City Council Minutes February 19, 1974 Page 6 Councilman Norris was also in support of either letting the property owner take over the course by either a holding company or by forming an assessment district for such purposes. Mayor Schwartz felt the citizens should take the position that the City would not acquire the golf course and that.they should proceed with the planning commission to arnend the General Plan and pursue with the Parks and Recreation Commission a change in the Park and Recreation! prior-Ity listing of the Capital Improvement program. He further felt the City could then proceed with a possible six -month lease as a holding action to determine final disposition by the City on whether to acquire the property or to amend the zoning and general plan map, etc. The City Council asked the staff to proceed with the Mayor's suggestion for a temporary six -month lease on the golf course with a view to further studies being made by the Parks and Recreation Commission; Plan- ning Commission, and the citizens and property owners in the area for retaining this area as open space. . Mayor Schwartz called a recess at 9:15 P.M. 9:30 P.M., the meeting reconvened with all councilmen present. 5. The Council considered a memorandum from the City-Ehgineer - sumbitting two alternates for providing a bike lane and parking restrictions on the westerly side of Los Osos Road between Madonna Road and the northerly City limits. Alternate A - would eliminate all parking on the westerly side of Los Osos Valley Road. Alternate B - would allow the continuation of parking and provide slightly narrower bike lanes, travel lanes and channelization islands on Los Osos Valiey Road. As far as the..public works-department was .concerned,.the City Engineer stated, that both of these alternates would function i,n an accep.tab.le manner. He then submitted sketches for the Council's consideration of alternate Plan A and B. Councilman Gurnee stated that he would support alternate A as he felt that this was an opportunity to establish a bike path on a major city street before complete development. Councilman Norris stated he was in support of alternate B as he felt this would give both bike paths and the tenants and residents of the area a place to park. Councilman Brown stated he, too, would support alternate B as being fairer to the property owners and would still give the b.ike path. room. Councilman Graham stated that he would support Alternate B. Mayor Schwartz-felt the City Council should adopt rp.lLan Ain order, to eliminate any conflict of parking automobiles with cyclists using the bike paths. He felt if the Council adopted alternate,B they would be. making,a mistake. He also felt that alternate A should be continued from the westerly City limits; on Los Osos Valley Road to Higuera.Street. E. L. Rogers, Police Chief, stated-that the minister of the Church on Los Usos Valley:Road stated that he:had - sufficient off- street parking and that he would have no objection to the restricted.parking. The.. Police Chief also recommended the City Council adopt alternate A if they were going to put a bike path in for the safety of the cyclists. 1 1 1 City Council Minutes February 19, 1974 Page 7 Councilman Brown stated he felt that the Los Osos Valley Road would carry large volumes of traffic in the future and on that basis would support alternate A in an attempt to protect the cyclists. On motion of Mayor Schwartz, seconded by Councilman Gurnee, that the, City Council adopt Plan A as presented and set a Public Hearing for the March 4, 1974 Council meeting. AYES: Councilmen Brown, Gurnee and Mayor Schwartz NOES: Councilmen Graham and Norris ABSENT: None The staff was asked to begin studying the possibility of. including bike lanes on Los Osos Valley Road from City limits to Higuera Street. 5B. Memorandum from City Attorney A. J. Shaw, Jr., recommending tnat the City Council, when establishing bicycle lanes,'should do so by. ordinance r.ather:than resolution, and he cited. Section 21207 of the California Vehicle Code. Under the provisions of this section,.the City may regulate the speed of motor vehicles and bicycles in the bicycle lanes, establish right of way rules favoring the bicycle and make such other. provisions as'are deemed necessary to protect and .regulate the bicyclists! He felt that.an ordinance enactment was preferable to a resolution because it could then be enforced as a misdemeanor violation. . The matter.was received,and filed to be considered at the;tirie the Council takes action.of the bike paths. 6. Council consideration of criteria established by the various City departments for determining overburdened City facilities. David Williamson, Assistant Administrative Officer,: submitted first copies of the criteria established by the various departments for.overburdened facilities: The City Engineer submitted.criteria.for sewage; sewage.treatment.plant, . sewer lift station and the sewer collection.system. W. E..Flory, Director Parks and Recreation, sumbitted criteria and standards for local park and recreation facilities.. E. L. Rogers, Police Chief, submitted departmental criteria to accomodate community development. Lee Schlobohm, Fire Chief, submitted a report on fire protection stan- dards. .R. A. Paul, Water.Department Director, submitted a preliminary engineering information report on standards and criteria for municipal water distri- bution system improvements. Mayor Schwartz stated that as the City Council %had not received the standards and criteria packages from the various departments until.. just prior to tonight's meeting, he felt it would be difficult or nearly impossible for the City: Council to discuss.the standards and criteria intelligently or to even consider adopting.said criteria. David Williamson,Assistant Administrative Officer, explained the methods used by the staff in arriving at.the proposed standards and•criteria. He concluded he felt based on information given to the Council this City Council Minutes February 19, 1974 page 8 evening in these reports, a developer or builder could not understand why a development was turned down due to overburdened facilities. Additional information is needed to really make this information useable. Councilman Norris questioned some of the conclusions arrived at by.the City staff in determining the overburdened facility criteria. Councilman Gurnee felt that receiving the information so late from the staff, it was impossible to fairly analyze the criteria and standards presented and to discuss them with the public. Councilman Brown stated that just briefly looking at the reports on standards and criteria since receiving them prior to the meeting, he felt the staff should look into all of.these reports, clarify and.simplify the criteria and standards in a single document rather than individual segments by department. Councilman Graham felt that standards and criteria should be condensed, put. into more readable order and sent out to the.City Council prior to the March 4, 1974 meeting. -. Mayor Schwartz agreed that -more staff work should be done to condense and clarify then.i ;nformati•on for;ease:,of understanding by the public and the City Council. He said that in the.little time he:had to look'at the material during the meeting, he felt that the staff had-done a terrific.job.of gathering.a. great amount of information, but he felt that it would be'quite complicated for the average person to digest. He hoped that some of this information would be placed graphically on maps and charts so they would more readily understood by all persons interested. The staff was instructed to re -study and prepare a condensation for the City Council's consideration at the March 4, 1974 hearing on overburdened facilities. 7. Communication from D. R. Griffith - Vice president and general manager, SLO Transportation Co. regarding some of the conditions of Resolution No. 2551, 1974 Series, a resolution accepting the bid.of SLO Transportation Co. for a one year transit operatieon and feasibility study. D. R. Griffith stated that in the discussions and in the offer or bids made offering a transit system for the City, several conditions were listed in the resolution that were not part of the negotiations or in the bid. Item 1 Regarding the vehicles.being washed and vacuumed daily, they did not'plan to do this.although the buses would be kept clean and in good appearance at all times. and would be washed and vacuumed as needed. Item 2 Vehicles would be radio equipped. He felt that this had been discussed at the negotiation meetingibut this had not been an offer of the company and that if they were required to install radios on all the buses, then there would have to �n; bs some kind'-­6f,'an_increase'in the rate in order to pay for this cost. Otherwise, all other conditions of the resolution as adopted were acceptable and further, 'the buses were ordered and hopefully would be here by the first of April. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, speaking on behalf of the Mass Transit Committee, stated that at no time did the transportation company offer to install radios in their buses, but that this had been discussed and possibly assumed as the company also operated the cabs which were radio equipped. He felt that this was not a condition of the original negotiations. On motion of Mayor Schwartz, seconded by Councilman Brown, the following resolution 1 1 1 City Council Minutes. February'19, 1974 Page 9 was introduced: A RESO OBISPO BID OF SYSTEM SYSTEM RESOLUTION NO. 2565 (1974 .

Petition from 16 residents on the north side of the 700 block of Meinecke Street requesting that the'.City of SLO replace the side- walk on the street that had been.removed from the center of the street original ly and further that the sidewalk be no more than four feet wide. Margaret C. Maxwell, 732 Meinecke Street, appeared before the Council on be- half of'the petitioners, stating that when the center island with sidewalks was taken out of Meinecke Street by the City, had been purportedly to help the traffic flow, they were promised by the City that at the time when side- walks were needed, the City would replace.them on one.side of Meinecke Street. She and her neighbors now would like the City to keep this promise and place sidewalks on Meinecke Street for the safety of pedestrians. R. D. Miller, Administrative Officer,.stated that he did not feel the. City was obligated to replace the sidewalk legally, but under the conditions that the sidewalks were removed, the City could install them as a service to the citizens of the area. D. F. Romero, City Engineer, explained the conditions of the street if sidewalks were installed.and the various widths of installation. Councilman Brown stated that if the property owners wished the sidewalks installed, they might be willing to contribute land for the sidewalk so as not to narrow the street width. Mayor Schwartz suggested that the staff look into the background of this matter and report to the City Council. He also asked that sketches be pre- pared showing Meinecke Street with.various alternates to sidewalk widths, driveway ramps,.etc. 9. Memorandum from the Waterways Planning Board - meeting February I, 1974, and calling for Council action on two matters: I. -The Waterways Planning Board recommended that the Council consider removing drainage culverts on Old Garden Creek at Mission Street and at Mountain View Street. On motion of Councilman Norris, seconded by Councilman Gurnee that the re- commendation be referred to the traffic committee for study of the effect the street closing would have on traffic and also the effect it would have on the fire department. 2. The Waterways Planning Board recommended that an . additional section be added to the Policies and Standards for Flood Plain Management. City'Council Minutes February 19, 1974 Page 10 On motion of Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Brown, the following resolution was introduced: RESOLUTION NO. 2566 (1974 Series) A RESOLUTION OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF'SAN LUIS OBISPO ADOPTING, AMENDED POLICIES AND STANDARDS FOR FLOOD PLAIN MANAGEMENT: Passed and adopted on following roll .call vote: AYES: Councilmen Brown, Graham, Gurnee and Norris, and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: None The Waterways Planning Board determination.regarding the Boriack property should also be brought to City Council attention, in order that the Council might direct the staff as to procedure to be followed regarding pursuing the installation of this drainage project next summer. The matter was referred to an executive session, and the City Clerk was instructed to notify Mrs.. Boriack that this matter was again under consideration by the City Council. 10. Communication from the Environmental Center of San Luis Obispo County - requesting that the City Council . extend the lease to the En- vironmental Center at the fire training site for another 12 months. The Environmental Center stated that they were now taking up less space at the fire training site through the use of smaller containers and the fact they were trying to ship out the newspapers as regula.rly as they could to avoid huge accumulations. Finally, the fence slats had now been received and would soon be installed which would make the area much more attractive. Mrs. Elizabeth Webre, representing ECOSLO, appeared before the City Council submitting financial statements for 1973 and suggesting that the City Council extend the ECOSLO's lease at the fire training site on a monthly basis rather than an annual basis in order to keep the pressure on the environmental center to find a new location. L. M. Schlobohm, Fire Chief, recommended that the request of the .environmenta'I center for an _extension_ of 12 months on their lease at the fire training site be denied on the basis that the Fire Department would be awarding a contract in 60 - 90 days for a project to pave the major portion of the training center for use as a. driver training.course and other training facilities. He felt the recycling operation, if continued at the present location would make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to complete the paving project as planned. He did not feel that the agreement should be extended unless it could be shown that the Environmental Center had been complying with all sections of the existing agreement with the City. On motion of Mayor Schwartz, seconded by Councilman Brown, that the City Council extend the lease to the Environmental.Center.of San Luis Obispo County on a' month to month basis with the Fire Department and ECOSLO to work out details of operation such as changing the location of the ECOSLO equipment and the Mayor was authorized to execute the lease on behalf of the City. Passed on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Brown, Graham, Gurnee and Norris and Mayor Schwartz. 1 1 City Council Minutes February 19, 1974 Page II NOES: None ABSENT: None CONSENT ITEMS: C - I Claims against the City of San Luis Obispo.
