Although arbitrary and interim, until a more com- prehensive re- evaluation of parking requirements had been accomplished as a part of the regulatory system revisions, the.above changes recom- mended by the Planning Commission reflected prevalent standards of other communities surveyed.

Mayor.Schwartz declared the public hearing closed. The-City Council discussed the recommendation of the Planning Commission with the Planning Director. After discussi -i4i Councilman Norris moved that an ordinance be introduced to print embodying ne cnanges r ecom- mended by the Planning Commission. 1. At this time the City Council held a public hearing on the recommendation of the Planning Commission to amend the zoning ordinance, Section 9200.36 and 9200.34, to require one parking space per 1,000 square feet for the first 10,000 square feet and one space per 5,000 square feet for the area in excess of 10,000 square feet for various indoor and out- door uses in the C -H and M zones. Robert Strong, Planning Director, presented the recommendation of the Planning Commission for the above.recommended parking changes. It was the feeling of the Planning Commission that there was no specific standard required by other cities and that the City of San Luis Obispo parking requirements were not the most stringent, but that the City's parking requirements for this type of use seemed excessive. The amendment recom- mended would provide sufficient parkinglarid would be more equitable to property owners. The Planning Commission recommended that the zoning amendment be adopted.

On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded by Councilman Brown that the mat- ter bey- returned to the Planning Commission for restudy of parking used in the C =H zone only and not in the M zone. Motion carried. 1 2. At this time the City Council held a public hearing on the recommendation.to rezone the area bounded by High, Beebee, South and Higuera Streets from M to C -H. Robert Strong, Planning Director, presented the-recommendation of the Planning Commission for the City Council's information. He stated that the Planning Commission felt the subject property was located within the area by High Street on the tiorth, Beebee Street on the east, South Street on the south and Higuera Street on the west. The property was developed with heavy commercial and neighborhood-commercial uses, which included a grocery store, restaurant, retail establishments, bus station, outdoor storage, etc. Surrounding land uses included residential uses on the east and heavy commercial uses on the north, west and south. He stated that the City was initiating the rezoning in conformance with the General Plan to allow the establishment of additional heavy commercial uses within the subject area. Also the existing neighborhood-commer- cial use within.the area were not allowed uses in the M zone and there- fore were nonconforming. It was the Planning Commission's opinion that this was a logical rezoning and was in accordance with the General Plan recommendations. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing open. Ed Salas, ^appeared before the City Council objecting to the rezoning ' only of that portion on the corner of Beebee and High Streets as he had just recently purchased the property and hoped to develop it into a residential use. He hoped that the City Council could at this time eliminate this proposed recommendation by the Planning Commission. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing closed. The Mayor explained to Mr. Salas the steps that were necessary to go through to rezone a piece of property._from one use to another and sug- gested that he contacti the Planning Department if he wished to proceed with the requested rezoning to residential use. On motion of Councilman Brown, seconded by Councilman Graham the-following ordinance was introduced: ORDINANCE.NO. 616.(1974 Series), an ordinance amending the official zone map of the City of San Luis Obispo. Passed to print on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Brown, Graham, Norris, and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: Councilman Gurnee 3. At this time the City Council considered the .adoption of an ' ordinance amending the City's ordinance for the regulation of contri- butions and expenditures in Municipal Elections by deleting.provisions concerning solicitation agents an c ang ng t e day for publication of campaign statements. These changes came about during the final hearing and adoption of the original ordinance and changes were requested by the City Council. City Council Minutes June 3, 1974 Page 3 Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing open. No one appealed' for or against the ordinance. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing closed. On motion of Councilman Graham,- seconded by Mayor Schwartz the following ordinance was introduced:. ORDINANCE NO..617 (1974 Series), an ordinance of the City.of San Luis Obispo amending the Municipal Code and the City's ordinance for.the regulation of contributions and expenditures in Muni- cipal elections by deleting the provisions concerning solicitation agents and changing the day for publication of campaign statements. Passed to print on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Brown, Graham, Norris and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: T. Keith Gurnee 4. At this time the City Council again considered the proposed in- stallation of-bicycle lanes on Los Osos'Valley Roadlbettieen Madonna Road and the northwesterly city limits and possibly restricted parking on the west side of Madonna Road. This matter was continued from the meeting.of.March 4, 1974. D.F. Romero, City Engineer, Siibmitted.a.report and sketches showing two pioposals,.for handling bicycle paths on the westerly side of Los Osos Val- ley Rodd. Plan A would place the bike lane adjacent to the curb along Los Osos Valley Road from the northwesterly city limits to Madonna Road with.par;king.•pro- hiblited adjacent to the curb. Plan B would be a_ proposal to allow parking along the curb at Los Osos Valley Road andtthen adjacent to.the parking lane a six foot bicycle.lane. This would carry from the northwesterly .city limits to Madonna Road. The City Council again.reviewed.the.report on bike paths by John E. Williams and the amended report by Mr..Williams of May 23, 1974. This report recommended that Plan B.as suggested by the City Engineer be adopted. Mayor Schwartz stated he again would like to present a combination of A and B which would allow.curb parking from Madonna Road.northerly op- posite the extension of Oceanaire Drive and that no curb parking be allowed from Oceanaire Drive extended.to the northwesterly city limits. He felt in this way both the property owners, who had developed property and needed curb.parking could be served and that the northwesterly end of the street.which.did not need the.parking could then allow the bikes to travel adjacent to the curb. On motion of Councilman Brown, seconded.by Mayor Schwartz the following resolution was introduced: - RESOLUTION NO. 2612 (1974 Series), a reso- lution of the-Council of the City of-San Luis Obispo prohibiting parking and establishing a bicycle lane on Los Osos Valley Road. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote.: all ayes, Councilman Gurnee absent. City Council Minutes June 3, 1974 Page 4 5. Communication from I3.F.'Romero, City Engineer, reporting to the City Council on the Water Quality Control Board requirements adopted May 10, 1974, which required records for daily application of chlorine which required at the Sewer Plant and also required that the water supply be sampled for total nitrogen content and also required that ' the City's monitoring program be reported monthly rather that quarterly. The City Engineer continued that the requirements adopted were more strin- gent regarding cyanide, copper.and zinc, than those of the earlier draft, and included toxicity limits, complete dechlorination, and a reporting of the toxicity, which were all at the request of the Fish and Game Commission. He concluded that in discussions with the local manager of the Culligan Water Softener Service, that the adopted requirements were so strict that there was a good possibility that not only would home water softeners be prohibited, but commercial water softeners as well. If this were so, it would eliminate the choice of citizens in _ obtaining soft eater for their residences, and would make it; impossible for certain commercial establishments, such as laundries, to function. In any event, the City Engineer concluded that he had asked the consul- tant John Jenk's comments regarding this part of the requirements and also for a proposal for headworks bypass for consideration at the June 17 Council meeting. . Fred. Hurst;. representing Culligan.Water.Softener.Service of Paso Robles, reviewed for the City Council the implications of the Water Quality Control Board requirements of controlling sodium in waste water dis- charge. He felt that if this requirement were in force there was a good possibility that not only would all home water softeners be pro- hibited, but commercial water softeners as well. In order to protect their business interest he offered the services of his company in any 1 studies undertaken by the City in this area and that the full facilities of the laboratory and their laboratory personnel would be available to the City for testing, monitoring, etc. The Mayor thanked Mr. Hurst for his offer, and stated.that.he was sure that the City would be looking for help from the private sector. D.F. Romero, City Engineer, then submitted a proposal from Jenks-and Adamson to-prepare and design recommendation in connection with the raw sewage bypass at the .sewage treatment plant in light of the requirements established by the Regional Water Quality Control Board. The total cost of the services would not exceed $900. On motion of Councilman Graham,.seconded.by Councilman-Brown that the City accept the proposal of John Jenks, of Jenks and Adamson, and auEh- orize the Mayor to sign the agreement. Motion carried. 6. The City Council reconsidered the recommendation of'the Mass Transportation Committee.dated May 10, 1974 considered and approved by the City Council on May 20, 1974. Item No. 9A of that report was a recommendation that bus routes be modi- fied to provide better service to the community. The matter..for reconsid- eration was requested by Councilman Norris as he wished the City Council -to- 'reconsider the elimination of the high school from the bus route. D.Y. Romero, City Engineer, reported that the recommendation of the Mass Transit Committee was based on the fact that the bus route going towards the-high school easterly on Marsh Street to California Boulevard many times was stopped becuase of'the railroad trains being in the crossing which necessitated the bus to.take another route to get to the high school area and it was felt that this caused scheduling problems, and further there was not much business being made of the bus by the high school stu- dents. 9 City Council Minutes June 3, 1974 Page 5 Dr. Helmut-Schleicher, 2640 E1 Cerrito Court, the complainer in this instance, stated that he witnessed the .exposing of the wall and footing of the retaining wall at 1645 .Encino Court, and he again stated that he desagreed with .the conclusions arrived at by the City Engineer and his staff and he feels that: 1. That.the wall.stands on uncompacted soil and rock fill, 2. There was not gravel fill behind the wall, 3. That the dimensions of the footing and.the wall do not conform to the standard which the City Engineer quoted. He-then reviewed in detail the footing depth, the footing width, the ' heights, etc.. He also stated.he felt that the required reinforcing was not present. However, he stated that.in order to save further concern he.asked the City Council.the following: 1. That the.City Council gives him in writing thy, assurance that the wall meets the specified standards and is there- fore considered safe. If he receives this from the City he would accept such a certification of the structure. Councilman Norris again urged the City.Council to route the bus to San Luis Drive and California Boulevard in order to service the high school, the Economic Opportunity Offices on Marsh Street, and the Nuss Pool. It was his feeling that the summertime that the buses.would be used trans- , porting youngsters to the swimming program. On motion of. Councilman Norris, seconded by Councilman Brown that the City replace the loop to San Luis Drive and.California Boulevard to Johnson Avenue. Motion carried, all ayes, Gurnee absent. 7. D.F. Romero, City Engineer , submitted a report to the City Council on.the action of the City Street Department Crews thatevaluated behind the retaining wall at 1645 Encino Court as directed by the City Council. He submitted a sketch showing the dimensions of the retaining wall as constructed. The City.Engineer continued that the wall deviate d.from a City stand -. and with a level.backfill, in that the footing was.one. inch (1 ") narrower than indicated.by.the standard, and that the depth of footing tapers up to nine inches (9 ") at the outside edges.rather.than.being twelve inches (12 ") throughout the full length. The placement.of the wall along the footing was approximately two inches.(2 ") away from the standard location.. The City. Engineer.stated that he:felt.all these . " deviations ` were quite minor and did not create any significant problem regarding the.strength of the wall. He reported that Paul Landell of his office found considerable evidence of gravel along the back of the wall, even though gravel was not required according to the City detail. He also stated that the engineers found material beneath the wall and in the backfill to be very well compacted.- He. concluded ;that the field ,investigation that was carried, out again, ..the contention of.the Public-.Works Department, the contractor, and the consulting engineers, that the wall at 1645 Encino Court was built -to City standards and was structurally safe., He also stated that the present owner of the property, George Gowgani, was extremely unhappy at what he felt was harrassment by the City on the part of the.neighbor and he stated.that he.would.not.grant. further permission _for the City or Mr. Schleicher to enter the property and to•annoy him further. Dr. Helmut-Schleicher, 2640 E1 Cerrito Court, the complainer in this instance, stated that he witnessed the .exposing of the wall and footing of the retaining wall at 1645 .Encino Court, and he again stated that he desagreed with .the conclusions arrived at by the City Engineer and his staff and he feels that: 1. That.the wall.stands on uncompacted soil and rock fill, 2. There was not gravel fill behind the wall, 3. That the dimensions of the footing and.the wall do not conform to the standard which the City Engineer quoted. He-then reviewed in detail the footing depth, the footing width, the ' heights, etc.. He also stated.he felt that the required reinforcing was not present. However, he stated that.in order to save further concern he.asked the City Council.the following: 1. That the.City Council gives him in writing thy, assurance that the wall meets the specified standards and is there- fore considered safe. If he receives this from the City he would accept such a certification of the structure. City Council Minutes June 3,.1974 Page 6 On motion of Councilman Brown,-seconded by Councilman Norris that the City Council finds the retaining wall at.1645 Encino Court meets the specified City standards and that upon recommendation of the City Engineer that.the wall is safe, the City accepts this recommendation and so publicly notifies Mr. Schleicher. Motion carried, all'ayes. The City Clerk was asked to send a copy of the minutes of the meeting to Mr. Schleicher for his records. 8. D.F. Romero, City Engineer, presented for the Council's consideration the Final.Map and Subdivision Agreement for Tract 467, Unit 2 , Garden Homes. He stated that the final map meets the City's requirements and is substantially complete and then listed the special conditions of the subdivision as follows: 1. The developer shall pay the City the sum of. $1840.36 which is the fair market value of 3/8 of an acre of land. These funds are to be used for future park development. _ 2.

For planning ..purposes, the City estimates that improvements constructed by compepitive bids will be completed within 24weeks_ after the contract_ is awarded, and.City agrees to use due diligence in seeking timely contract performance, However, the parties re- ' cognize that City cannot guarantee timely performance, and developer (agrees that City shall not be responsible for any loss incurred by him as a.result of delays in contract completion. Developer also agrees to hold City harmless from all claims by third persons, pur- chasers or tenants which are based upon delays in'performance of the publicly administered contracts. 10. It is mutually agreed that the Developers share -of those por- tions of .the work to be publicly administered is estimated at $7190.00, and that these funds will be deposited with the City. If after the contract is awarded for this work it is found that,the amount deposited exceeds the Developer's- share, the City shall.refund the surplus to the Developer. It is also mutually agreed that should these funds prove insufficient, the Developer will provide additional funds as deemed necessary by the.City. 11. It is mutually-agreed that the Developer shall have the right to reject any bid which-is-publicly administered which the Developer feels will result in unreasonable hardship. 12. The following paragraph is a part of this agreement and shall be placed on the subdivision map: Within Lots 88, 89, 90 and 91 of Tract 467, Unit 2, and within other easements designated as "Public Utility Easements" on the final recorded- subdivision map of Tract 467, Unit 2, no physical obstruction which would prohibit free access for op- ..eration, maintenance.and replacement of-public utility facilities shall be installed except as approved by the City. Use of such lots and easements shall at all times be subject to the paramount rights of the City for the purposes for which they il were originally reserved and if in the course of operation, maintenance or restoration of existing public utility facilities or construction of future facilities intended to serve directly Tract 467, Unit 2; it becomes necessary for the.City.to remove any private improvements, including street improvements and landscaping, such removal shall be accomplished by the City without.responsibility for restoration or replacement.of the private improvements, provided the City will repair and replace the public facilities removed and will backfill and compact to base of paving or.to ground level.excavations made by the ...City. The provisionsihereof shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the successors of the parties hereto. Nothing-shall be ;constr_ued__ toygive: the City rights-to use said Lots 88, 89, 90 and 91 and Public Utility Easements shown on the subdivision map of Tract 467, Unit 2, to serve any properties not located within said Tract 467, Unit 2. The City Engineer stated that'all the conditions had been approved by the Planning Commission, Subdivision Review Board, and had been accepted by the sub - developer except.that. now there was a question as to the amount of contribution for future park development, item l of the special condi- tions. The City Engineer continued that the item 1 shown.at $1840.36 was on the basis of the value of the property at the time the tentative map was sub- mitted and approved by the City Council and is so-required by the sub- division ordinance. But, since that time, the Park and Recreation Com- mission felt that condition 1 should be modified to the amount of $7,416.75 City. Council Minutes June 3, 1974 Page 8 which was the fair market value of .67 acres based on a fair market value of.today of $11,000 per acre. He.felt that this should be con- sidered by the City Council. He then presented a communication from the Park and Recreation Commission explaining their feeling on the park land dedication fees as suggested and as recommended amended by the ' Park and Recreation.Commission. The further.consideration.of the matter by the Park and Recreation Commission then reduced the.amount of land which was to be included as part of the dedication, which is now 3/8 of one acre and that the fee based on the current market value should be $4,125.00_. Warren Dolezal, developer, objected to the City'.s attempt to tie the final map approval with today's market value for park land dedication rather than to the date of the tentative map which he.felt.was what the City ordinance required. He als6 felt that.his budget for the tract on the commitments made at,the tentative map stage.had.been approved, and that now he was being unfairly treated in that he must somewhere get additional-funds to make the deposit necessary to proceed with the tract. He felt that the City Council naturally had him over a barrel as he could not abandon.the subdivision over such a small amount of money when he had so many - hundreds of thousands tied up. 'He did -not feel that this was fair treatment by the City of San Luis Obispo.. Robert Strong, Planning Director, reviewed for the City Council the var- ious City ordinances dealing with dedication of park land in subdivisions particularly in planned developments when the subdivisions are being done in phased units. Councilman Norris stated that it.was his opinion that the City Council should stay with the City ordinance as adopted and that the park land , in lieu dedication fee should be established at the time of filing the tentative map-and not at today's values after the subdivision has been ,'started. The City Council then discussed at length at which point in time did the lieu fees come into effect, at the tentative map stage or at the final map stage or development stage. Robert Strong again reviewed both ordinances and their implications on this - tentative development. Councilman Norris moved that the 3/8 acre value should be taken as of the time of filing the tentative map which would require the filing of the sum of $1840.36. Motion died for lack of a second. On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded'by Councilman Brown. that the City Council accept the recommendation of the Park and Recreation Com- mission for-3/8's acres of in lieu fee-at $4,125.00. Motion carried, all ayes, Councilman Gurnee absent. D.F. Romero, City - Engineer, then brought to the City Council's considera- tion a special request by W. Dolezal to allow permission to remove over 60,000 cubic yards of earth from Phase 2 of Garden Homes development, to land lying westerly of Phase I and II and east of San Luis Creek. At the request of the City Council the City.:Engineer reviewed in detail , the grading plan of Phase 2 and the plan where the 60,000 cubic yards of land would be deposited and ultimately compacted. City Council Minutes. June 3, 1974 Page 9 On motion of Councilman Brown seconded by Councilman Graham that the City Council withhold appioval.of the.final map and subdivision agree- ment of Tract .467, Unit 2, pending revision of the grading plan of the tentative map and.determination by.the Planning Commission of ' implications on movement of surplus dirt from the site of Unit 2 to the. adjacent property.

Communication from the City Engineer forwarding a recommenda- tion of..the.Waterways.Planning.Board that the.request of James Renning to construct a driveway decking over an enclosed drainage facility be approved. Since this involved construction.over a City easement, ad- ditional action on the Council's part was necessary. On motion of.Councilman Brown, seconded by Councilman Graham that the recommendation of the Waterways Planning Board be approved and that James Renning be allowed to construct driveway decking over the.facility after execution of an encroachment permit.. .Motion carried all ayes, Council- man Gurnee absent. 10. Communication from the City Engineer - stating that the Federal Highway Act of 1973 would make.available.within the next three years for the use of the City of San Luis Obispo $420,000 for expenditures on high- ways. One of the requirements established by_the Federal Government for the use of these funds called for a cooperative process in determining priorities. Accordingly, the County staff was.recommending that each city in the.County of San Luis Obispo adopt a resolution authorizing this cooperative process. He concluded..that the area Planning Council would consider these-resolutions at its next.meeting and he asked the City Council to consider adoption.of a resolution approving the.coopera- tive process for determining project priorities for Federal Aid Urban Planning. On motion of Mayor Schwartz, seconded by Councilman Graham the following resolution was introduced. RESOLUTION NO. 2610, a resolution of the Council of the City of San Luis. Obispo requesting .the State.Department of Trans- portation to approve a cooperative process for determining Federal Aid for Urban System project priorities.

Memorandum.from Robert Strong, Planning Director,.regarding ' General Plan revision and..related special services, which he.felt would be most appropriate and most economical if.the.City were to hire certain individuals and.limited•:technical.assistance locally.rather than hire part -time technical. sniff.in. -the City. He..presented'a recommendation and proposal that Urban Resource Analysts be retained. ;to perform a resi- dential building stud)r .which-would evaluate residential structures in terms of land use type, building occupancy, building condition, building City Council Minutes June 3, 1974 Page 10 age, and building size. They would also.determine.Architectural 'style and significance, historic value, conversions of building use and the relationship of each site to its neighbors. The total cost for the survey by URA would be $2,500.
