CITY HALL Roll Call ' Present: Graham, Gurnee, Norris, Mayor Schwartz Absent: Brown 1 City Staff' Present: J.H. Fitzpatrick, City Clerk; P.D. Miller, Administrative Officer; A.J. Shaw, Jr., City Attorney; D. Williamson, Assistant Administra- tive Officer; W. Flory, Director of Parks 8 Recreation; R.A. Paul, Water Department Director; E.L. Rodgers, Police Chief; D.R. Romero, City Engineer; L. Schlobohm, Fire Chief; R. Strong, Planning Director. I. The City Council considered the final Ordinance No. 614, an ordinance of the City of San amending the N10nicipal Code by adding Chapter 5 to providing for the regulation of contributions and in Municipal Elections. passage of Luis Obispo Article IV expenditures Councilman Norris requested that the City Council not take ac- tion at this time as Councilman Brown was absent and he felt this important City legislation should have consideration by the full Council prior to its adoption. F.J. Shaw, Jr.,_City Attorney, stated that Section 4504, Soli- - citation agents, was inadvertently included in this ordinance as printed, and that at the time the ordinance was passed to pi-int by the Council this section was to be removed. He stated there would be no problem if the Council wished to finally adopt the ordinance as printed and the ordinance could be amended by an additional ordinance. He also asked the City Council if it was their intention in Section 4509, subsection 7, that the campaign statements for all candidated be published on the Friday prior to the election or on Saturday. The reason this was brought to the attention of the Council was that the City Clerk reported that in order to advertise on Friday, all the candidate contributions would have to be filed by Wednesday. It it were allowed to be advertised on Saturday, the ads and listings had to be in to the newspaper by Thursday. It was the feeling that this would give one more day for consideration and for the can- didates to report. Councilman Gurnee was in support of adopting the ordinance with the amendments by dropping Section 4505 as was previously done and amending Section 4509 (7) to allow the contributors to be advertised on Saturday and not Friday. He would support final passage of the ordinance. Councilman Norris felt the needed of the Obispo court. by the community at ordinance which he and actually might ordinance was poorly written, was not this time. He then reviewed sections felt were inappropriate for San Luis be declared unconstitutional by a higher City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page 2 Councilman Graham stated he was in support of the ordinance as introduced and he too would accept the amendments as sug- gested by the City Attorney. Mayor Schwartz declared the meeting open to the public on this 1 matter. Amy Arsenio felt this ordinance had been thoroughly studied since July 1973 and felt the City Council should proceed with final passage as it was good legislation for San Luis Obispo. Mayor Schwartz declared the meeting closed to Council and staff discussion as no one else appeared before the Council. Councilman Gurnee again expressed his support of the ordinance. He felt the legislation was needed for the good of San Luis Obispo and was an ordinance urgently needed by the voters of San Luis Obispo and that taking money out of elections would give government back to the voters and allow more citizens to run for office. Councilman Norris read a newspaper article which stated that the State Attorney General had given an opinion that cities could not limit expenditures for elections. He felt this ordinance was unconstitutional. He stated he was for full disclosure of campaign statements and was also in support of $100 maximum for each contributor and he was for full know- ledge of who was supporting a candidate, but he felt the or- dinance was not a good one as it was anti - establishment and anti - business and was in favor of students and unemployed per- sons who could do leg work but had no funds to support a can- didate of their choice. He felt that a working man could not go door to door if he wished to run for office and that citizens should be allowed to support his candidacy by con- tributions of cash. He hoped the Council would make the neces- sary arrangements and amend the ordinances to make the ordinance more realistic and workable. He further objected to the ap- pointment of a citizens' committee to review the actions of this ordinance during the 1975 election. He sincerely asked the Council to defer any action until the full Council could be present and make the necessary changes in the ordinance. Councilman Graham stated he was in support of the ordinance. He thought it was well written; the financial limitations were needed now. He also thought Section 4505 could be eliminated to clear up the election procedure. A.J. Shaw, Jr., City Attornev, commented on Attorney General Younger's opinion, but he felt that Charter cities were allowed to control municipal elections as long as they were more re- strictive than State law. Mavor Schwartz felt the ordinance was needed to allow people in the Citv to make their decisions on election of officers with full knowledge of who was supporting each candidate. He also 1 felt the limit on the amount of contributions was good and rea- sonable. He felt this was an ordinance which would be setting a standard for future elections in San Luis Obispo. He felt this was a good ordinance and would require each supporter of a candidate to stand up and be counted. He also felt that Section 4513, a Council Study Committee, was a good safe -guard for review of the ordinance after the 1975 election. He felt City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page 3 this was a reasonable requirement of the ordinance and he felt the Council in office at that time would wish to have the ordinance completely reviewed to see if it was still viable and was still necessary. ' On motion of Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Graham, Ordinance No. 614, an ordinance of the City of San Luis Obispo amending the Municipal Code by Adding Chapter 5 to Article IN, and providing for the regulation of contributions and expendi- tures in municipal elections, was finally passed on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Gurnee, Graham and Mayor Schwartz NOES: Councilman Norris ABSENT: Councilman Brown 2. At this time the City Council considered the final passage of Ordinance No. 615, an ordinance of the City of San Luis Obispo amending the official zone map of the City (to re- zone 2211 Broad Street from M (manufacturing) to C -N -S (neigh- borhood commercial, combining)). P. Strong, Planning Director, reviewed for the City Council the recommendation of the Planning Commission to rezone this property to neighborhood commercial with a combining designation added. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing open. No one appeared before the Council to comment. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing closed. On motion of Councilman Norris, seconded by:-Councilman Gurnee, Ordinance No. 615, an ordinance amending the official zone map of the City of San Luis Obispo, was finally passed on the fol- lowing roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Graham, Gurnee, Norris and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: Councilman Brown 3. At this time the City Council was scheduled to hold a public hearing on the appeal of Marvin R. Trevillian from a denial by the Planning Commission to build a proposed housing project for.the elderly at 1245 Phillips Lane. The City Clerk presented a communication from Robert B. Mac- Kenzie, attorney representing Mr. TreviIIian, requesting that ' the appeal be withdrawn and that the matter not be considered by the City Council. Upon advice of the City Attorney, the Mayor asked if anyone was interested in discussing this matter before the City Council as it had been advertised as a public hearing. No one appeared before the City Council. City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page 4 The matter was removed from the agenda. 4. Continued hearing on the installation of bicycle lanes on Los Osos Vallev Road from the northwesterly Citv limits to Madonna.Road. ' The City Clerk reported that property owners involved had a- gain been notified of this evening's hearing. D.F. Romero, Citv Engineer, reviewed his proposal for the installation of a bicycle lane on Los Osos Road between Madonna Road and the northwesterly City limits. He stated it was his view that parking should not be prohibited on arterials when there was a need for such parking and where traffic in the foreseeable future would not be of such large volumes as to endanger bicyclists riding between parked cars and the outer vehicular lane. On that basis, he recommended that Plan B of the two proposals which eliminated parking on the westerly side be adopted by the City. He concluded that if the City Council found this plan unacceptable, it would then be possible as a compromise measure to adopt Plan A between Descanso and the apartments opposite Oceanaire and Plan B from this point to Madonna Road thus leaving a clear lane for the bicyclists wherever possible and providing parking only at those locations where needed by the adjacent businesses. John E. Williams, employee of the City of San Luis Obispo, studying bike ways in the City, recommended that from the western . limits to Madonna Road no parking be allowed on the north side of Los Osos Road as this property was for the most 1 part _undeveloped at the present time. If development occured, then I%e recommended that the developer should be required to put in additional off - street parking. He recommended that parking be allowed to continue on the southside and that the bike lane be placed on the traffic side of the parking lane. He noted there was some need for additional parking for the apart- ments on Los Osos Valley Road. He then submitted several recom- mendations for Los Osos Valley Road from Madonna Road easterly to the residential areas on Higuera Street. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing open. Ron Benzer, developer and builder on Los Osos Valley Road, ob- jected to the plan of eliminating parking on the west side of the road as he felt it would hurt his business on this street as he had sufficient parking for tenants and their employees but that customers used the curbside parking to ca•CI on businesses in the area and if this was eliminated, his businesses would be required to move and his tenants would seek other locations where their customers could park. Bonnie Haaeman, manager of the Irish Hills Hamlet Apartments, felt that the elimination of parking in front of the apart- ment house would be detrimental to both the owner and the tenants of the building. She stated that the tenants had , sufficient parking in the back and side of the property but that visitors must park at the curb and if this parking were eliminated, then the tenants would have to move as they would have no place for their visitors to park. City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page 5 Gerald Shipsev, attorney for Aime LaLande, objected to the proposal to eliminate parking along the west side of Los Osos Valley Road which he felt would be ..disastrous to his client's property as they could provide parking for their tenants but no additional parking would be provided for visitors. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing closed. Councilman Graham stated he would support Plan B which would prohibit parking on the easterly side but would permit park- ing on the westerly side as he did not wish to see red zones on Los Osos Valley Road as it would hurt the tenants and busi- nesses in the area. Councilman Gurnee felt that he would support Plan A which would grant a bike path for the protection of the bicyclists on the heavily travelled road. Councilman Norris stated that he would support Plan B as he did not like to see the curbside parking eliminated for the properties. Mayor Schwartz stated that he would support a compromise of Plans A and B with curb parking allowed where it already exists between Oceanaire and Madonna Road along the westerly side of Los Osos Valley Road with the bike path adjacent to parking but with curb parking eliminated to allow for full bike lanes from the extension of Oceanaire Drive to the west- , erly City limits. On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded by Councilman Norris, that the City adopt Plan B. Motion lost on.the following roll call vote: AYES: Graham, Norris NOES: Schwartz, Gurnee Councilman Gurnee stated he would favor the Mayor's compromise of Plans A and B. Onrmotion of Mayor Schwartz, seconded by Councilman Gurnee, that Plan B be adopted but modified from Descanso to the ex- tension of Oceanaire Drive and then Plan A be continued to the City limits. Motion lost on a two to two vote. The matter was continued on Motion of Graham, seconded by Schwartz; for consideration by the full Council. 5. At this time the City Council discussed its action or actions relative to Zone 9 tax rate issue as Measure B on the June primary ballot. D. Williamson, Assistant Administrative Officer, reviewed a lengthy document regarding the taxation proposal for Zone 9. He said Measure B proposed the establishment of an ST tax rate limit per $100 of assessed valuation on real property for two years and a 5a limit thereafter. The revenue from these taxes City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page 6 would pay primarily for: (1) the preparation of a master drainage plan which takes into consideration corrective and pr.eventati.ve flood control and water conservation measures, land use controls within the major waterways, and related flood plains. Recognition would be given to environmental, aesthetic effects, and multi - purpose use of major waterways and related flood plains; (2) Obtain additional hydraulic data within the watershed; and (3) provide an annual stream - bed survey program and a modest streambed clearance program. He stated that the construction of improvements within the waterways and related aspects such as land acquisition would be the subject of future master bond proposals. He continued that the preparation of a master plan and all it entailed were outlined in a letter prepared by Mr. Robert Strong, Planning and Building Director dated March 29, 1974. The Zone 9 Ad- visory Board has selected a consulting firm to prepare the master plan contingent upon voter approval of Measure B. While no firm work program had been developed, he had met with Clint Milne and Wally Burt of the County Engineering staff re- viewing Mr. Strong's letter point by point in an attempt to clarify what work would logically be within the scope of Zone 9 plan and what work would be within the City's scope through the Planning Consultant KDG. He then reviewed an outline of the responsibility of the.City's consultant e6d the Zone 9 consul- tant. In summary, he stated that a work program for Zone 9 Master Plan had not been formalized or adopted by the Advisory Board or the Board of Supervisors. The County Engineering staff was now endorsing a master plan study that was quite broad in scope. The County staff and the Advisory Board had concurred that the master plan should reflect the needs and desires of clearly defined portions of the watershed. For example, the master plan for the City and its environs should reflect the wishes of the City. For those who believed that this intent was sufficient evidence that support should be given to Measure B, this intent should suffice. As a valid reason why Measure B should be supported, anyone who believed this intent should be mandated may with to seek additional guarantees before stating a position. He then reviewed the March 29, 1974 letter from the City's Planning Director regarding the evaluation of a joint study of the various planning alternatives involved with Zone 9. He then reviewed an information sheet from the Advisory Board of the Flood Control Zone 9, which stated that the initial goals of the advisory board were,_(_1.) -to develop a master drainage plan for the watershed, have it adopted by both the City and County as a part of their respective General Plans. The Plan would look to both corrective and preventative measures and would consider nat only the traditional flood con- trol measures, but would look at land use controls;.(2).gather ad- ditional hydrologic data so that future decisions would be better made by the responsible agencies. This would require the installation of additional recording rain guages and stream flow stations. (3) provide an annual streambed surveyance pro- gram with a streambed clearance program. This would be but a modest program which would keep problems minimal from a small or average storm but would not be helpful in combating large storms. He then reviewed for the Council how the tax rate limits proposed on the June 4, 1974 ballot Measure B would affect pro- perty owners with various assessed valuations. The City Council and Assistant Administrative Officer then dis- cussed the various elements of the report on Zone 9 and how it would work. City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page 7 D. Williamson stated that the County Engineer notified him that historically, when an Advisory Board in the Flood Con- trol District made a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors,' then the Board of Supervisors normally agreed with the recom- mendation. Clint Milne, Assistant County Engineer (Hydraulics), appeared before the City Council requesting Council support of Measure B on the June primary ballot becuase without the power to tax or to receive funds, none of the studies or plans for Zone 9 could be accomplished. Councilman Graham felt that due to the disagreement with the Countv over the flood control, particularly involving joint operation or a joint task force, it might be better if the City Council took no action for or against Measure B. Councilman Gurnee felt that after reviewing the Williamson report after the meeting started that the matter should be continued to a special meeting when Councilman Brown could be present to participate in discussion of the recommendation as he was the Council's representative on the Advisory Board. He stated that until such discussion was held, he would oppose support of the Measure by the City. He also indicated that he wished that he could have received the analysis by the Assistant Administrative Officer prior to the Council meeting so that they could have some intelligent discussion. Councilman Norris stated that he was very pleased with Wil- ' liamson's report even though it was received at such a late date and could not be properly analyzed by the City Council for their consideration. He was pleased to hear the City and County personnel to the Zone 9 Advisory Board were working well together to solve the flood problems in the watershed, and he felt that Zone 9 is a.winner. He stated he would en- dorse it, support it and also felt that the City Council should do all they could to help this passage. Mavor Schwartz felt that under existing conditions and due to the lack of the cooperative attitude on the part of the County Board of Supervisors he felt that the City had no other way to go but to support Measure B. The matter was continued to a future Council meeting when Council- man Brown would be present for a further analysis. 6. Memorandum from the Council subcommittee, Councilmen John Brown and Myron Graham, on a preliminary building plan for Meadow Park. On May I the subcommittee met with the Park 8 Recreation Com- mission and representatives from the Architectural Review Com- mission, Design Review Board and staff their ideas and suggestions were noted by the architect and further discussed by the Council subcommittee on May 8, 1974. At this time the Council subcom- mittee recommended adoption;of the preliminary plan of Architect James Maul and recommended that the City authorize the architect to proceed with working plans and drawings. James Maul, Architect, appeared before the City Council submitting a program to the City Council for development of a building for the Meadow Park area. He reviewed for the City Council a model explaining City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page 8 the reasons and background for the type of building that he would recommend for the Meadow Park. He estimated the cost as of this date to be $106,835.00. On motion of Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Graham the City Council accepted the design and program as presented by the Architect James Maul and authorize the architect to pro- ceed with working plans on drawings subject to one more review meeting with the.Citizens in the neighborhood of Meadow Park. If they had no major objections in the neighborhood then the architect was to proceed. Motion carried, no noes, Councilman Brown absent. Mayor Schwartz declared a recess at 9:20 P. M. The meeting reconvened at 9:35 P. M. with all Councilmen present. 7. Council consideration of the recently adopted Archi- tectural Review Commission procedures as authorized by Ordinance No. 600 (1974 Series). Robert Stronq, Planning Director, reviewed with the City Council for their consideration procedures adopted by the Architectural Review Commission as required by the City ordinance. The City Council discussed with the Rev. Tiaden, member of the Architectural Review Commission, some of the background and rea- soning why the ARC adopted the procedures as recommended by the City Council. On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded by Mayor Schwartz the following resolution was introduced. Resolution No. 2605, a resolution of the Council of the City of San Luis Obispo ap- proving Architectural Review Commission procedures and criteria. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Graham, Gurnee, Norris, and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: Councilman Brown 2. Communication from Dr. Helmut Schleicher, 2640 El Cerrito, again submitted complaints to the actions taken by the City staff in regard to 1645 Encino Court (Chatham - Del Vaglio) matter. This matter was continued from the May 6, 1974 session. Dr. Schleicher was again taking issue with the actions and letters submitted by City staff members, David Williamson and David F. Romero, regarding the land development at 1645 Encino Court. It was Dr. Schleicher's continued contention that the wall on this property was not built according to City standards, reinforcing was not properly applied, that the fill was not properly com- ' pacted, and it was his opinion that the wall was likely to col- lapse at any time when the weight of water and /or dirt became stronger than the wall built on the property. City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page 9 Upon question D.F. Romero stated that it was his opinion that the retaining wall was safe and was no risk to the adjacent property owner. The City Council discussed with the City Engineer the various allegations made by Dr. Schleicher regarding the Del Vaglio pro- perty. Dr. H. Schleicher stated that if the City would accept responsi- bility for possible failure of the wall he would accept the Council determination just so that the Council understood what they are accepting for possible future City liability. Although he, Dr. Schleicher, felt the City should make the necessary studies of the wall and footing to see what was really built and if it was built to City standards. Councilman Norris stated that he was satisfied that the wall was built according to City standards, and he hoped the matter could be put aside so the Council could move ahead with.more important business. The City Engineer was asked by the City Council if it were pos- sible to expose the end of the wall to see if it were built to City standards with a detail report of their findings to the City Council. The City Engineer stated this could be done and the matter was continued to a future meeting after the studies had been made. .9A. Memorandum from the City Engineer, D.F. Romero, re- questing Council approval of several actions taken by the Mass Transoortation Committee at their meeting of May I, 1974 regarding the City bus system. A. The modification of the bus routes to provide better service to the community. This recommendation carries with the implication of printing a new bus schedule and some changes in vehicle mileage. B. Consideration of quantity discounts for pur- chase of tokens in the amount of $100 or greater. .C. Initiation of a JO¢ fare after 7:00 P.M. Thursday evening and all day on Sundays. D. Installation of a number of additional bus benches and relocation of several from present locations. E. Permission for the City Engineer to be authorized to order the van to operate at .70Q per mile rate under special conditions. ft D.F. Romero, City Engineer, felt that there was no way that the City could meet Dr. Schleicher's complaints, as he had complained and critized each engineer that had done any work on the property. It was Mr. Romero's opinion that Chatham property was satisfactory the work done on and met minimum the City Del - Vaglio - standards except for the landscaping. Upon question D.F. Romero stated that it was his opinion that the retaining wall was safe and was no risk to the adjacent property owner. The City Council discussed with the City Engineer the various allegations made by Dr. Schleicher regarding the Del Vaglio pro- perty. Dr. H. Schleicher stated that if the City would accept responsi- bility for possible failure of the wall he would accept the Council determination just so that the Council understood what they are accepting for possible future City liability. Although he, Dr. Schleicher, felt the City should make the necessary studies of the wall and footing to see what was really built and if it was built to City standards. Councilman Norris stated that he was satisfied that the wall was built according to City standards, and he hoped the matter could be put aside so the Council could move ahead with.more important business. The City Engineer was asked by the City Council if it were pos- sible to expose the end of the wall to see if it were built to City standards with a detail report of their findings to the City Council. The City Engineer stated this could be done and the matter was continued to a future meeting after the studies had been made. .9A. Memorandum from the City Engineer, D.F.

The changes were being recommended in an attempt to cover more area and to provide service to more people. After discussion and review of the actions by the Mass Trans- portation Committee, the Council took the following action: On motion of Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Graham A. Bus Routes I and 2 were modified as recommended, B. Quantity discount of tokens in the amount of $100 or greater were made at 20¢ per token as opposed to the normal 252 fare. C.

Robert Stronq, Director of Planning and Building for the City of San Luis Obispo reported that Mr. Gualt of the firm Kennard, Delahousie and Gualt would present a detail work program, performance schedule and proposed contract for consultant services regarding the General Plan and regulatory system re- visions oroaram. The program would involve a seven month com- prehensive and intensive study to revise and refine the City's General Plan including field research, environmental and economic analysis and preparation of General Plan elements and specific plans. The specific plans would include at least three phase development programs for the Central Business District, Govern- ment Center, Los Osos Valley and Edna Valley areas. Additionally the program will provide a complete and coordinated system of development, regulatory and implementation proposals including zoning, subdivision, environmental and economic impact evaluation procedures and provisions. The contract would be presented for Council consideration, and.the work proposal by KDG will also describe the tasks assigned to the principals and the subcontract- ing consultants (Envicom, an environmental consultant firm, eco- nomic consultants), and also defines some of the related respon- sibilities of the City staff and other assistants. The rDG portion of the program is estimated to cost the City $112,500 maximum, which would include professional services for the plan and program pre- sentation, preparation, and publication. In addition to this fee the City will incur additional expenses other than extensive staff participation throughout the program. Specifically, the City should anticipate at least $13,500 for aerial photographic mappinq, $11,500 supplementary budget for special studies related to the primary program. Also, in addi- tion to the budget the City staff requested authorization to 1 1 1 r 1 i employ both short -term, and special consultants authorize, in addition the following: City Council Minutes May 20, 1974 Page II part -time professional planning personnel It was requested that the City Council to the KDG and aerial mapping proposals I. A team of local students now organized as ':'Urban Resource Analysts', to conduct a residential building/ environmental survey at an approximate cost of $2,500. 2. Retain, as determined necessary by the Director of Planning and Building, the local firm of Meyer, Merriam and Associates, to provide assistance to City staff for special studies such as Hoffman property and airport area development studies, preparation of precise standards and design criteria, and data collection. Approximate allocation of $4,000 requested. 3. Reservation of approximately $1,000 for preparation and implementation of an information inventory and index system, to be prepared by a professional librarian. 4. Retain, as a part -time, short -term employee, Planning Associate, Pat Gerety, who was resigning from his full - time position to return to graduate studies, to provide continuing and supplementary staff services while newly appointed staff is being initiated. Estimated cost at $500 per month for 8 months is $4,000. In summary, the General Plan and Regulatory System Revision Pro- gram; tentatively outlined in the 1974/75 Planning and Building Departmental Budget at $127,000 would be composed of the following: I. Primary contract with KDG $112,500 2. Aerial photo & mapping 13,500 3. Supplementary staff and special studies 11,500 For a total of $137.500 Again, because of the magnitude of this proposed program, the Planning Director and staff consultant representatives were willing at this time to receive questions from the City Council on the pro- posal as presented. Mr. Gault, representing Kennard, Delahousie and Gualt appeared be- fore the City Council reviewing their proposed contract for con- sulting services listing their responsibilities, the City's re- sponsibilities, how the contract would be paid and how it will be implemented.. They also presented a lengthy document, exhibit A" on the scope of the work to be accomplished by the consultant and by the City. Exhibit B and C were professional wage rates and a budget estimate on the various items to be conducted under the contract. On motion of Mayor Schwartz, seconded by Councilman Gurnee the following resolution was introduced.
