He briefly reviewed the various applications of precautionary action points and critical points for the.various public services such.as water supply, water distribution, water treatment, fire suppression, sewer.treatment,.sewer collection, Police service, social services, etc. Councilman Graham.arrived at.the. meeting and took place at 7:10 p.m. Warren Dolezal, developer, asked that the City Council .grant special consideration and exemptions.from the, .provis ions -of •.Ordinance 604 -A and Resolution No. 2685 to projects that are presently in planning and pre - permit stage, in order to avoid having.these projects.come under. the provisions of the ordinance when it became effective. David-Williamson, Assistant Administrative Officer, stated that it was his hope that prior'to the effective date-of Ordinance 604 -A, the City staff would have a list of projects for Council consideration.,that were now.in the planning or pre - permit stage. The City Attorney, A.J. Shaw, stated that any project under planning, but with no permit having been issued could-not be exempted from the conditions from an ordinance once it had been adopted and the effective date had passed. ' Fred Strong,.CEBES,;.stated that with the adoption of this ordinance,. the City would be.able to .avoid moratoriums in "future and felt that the proposal was a good ordinance for the people of San Luis Obispo, had been arrived.at by com- promise.by both the City and developers, and hoped the City Council would require compliance by.the. various City departments... E. Douglas Gerard, Executive Dean, California Polytechnic State University, stated that the work of the Ad Hoc Resource Advisory Committee appointed to investigate the impact of.City growth on utility resources, which resulted in the adoption of Ordinance 604 -A, stated that this ordinance restricted the growth of the City to the extent that existing and planned resources of.all kinds would not be over taxed. City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 2 He continued that it was.apparent.that members of. .the committee and other citizens of-San.Luis_Obispo_ were not aware of the fact that Cal Poly had contributed.a proportionate share of the capital funds.associated with the construction.of the.new City water.filtration plant and the expansion of the City's sewage treatment plant. The capital contribution respectively was 28.75 percent and.23 percent of the capital costa Additionally, the University had shared the capital cost of transmission facilities directly associated with the services provided. As a regular-City customer for these utilities, the University contributed monthly to the City for..its share of treatment and transmission costs-for each-of these two services. It was the intent of the University-to.-continue to.cooperate with the.City.both..in terms of capital and operating costs.associated with these utilities.and would continue to contribute .a. proportionate share of any costs associated with necessary expansion to meet its growth. The.University also sh_ared.with the City of San Luis Obispo and the Department of Corrections in-the construction of the Whale Rock Reservoir and associated transmission facilities. The University had a proportionate share of the safe annual yield of that facility assigned to it. Councilman Norris asked if future development at Cal Poly required that they come under the provisions-of Ordinance 604 -A. A.J. Shaw,. City Attorney, explained that Ordinance 604 -A, Section.2800.1A required that they come-under the provisions of Ordinance 604 -A. Jim Hensley spoke in'support of adoption of Ordinance 604 -A in order to' require.that Cal Poly pay their fair share of growth imposed upon ... the citizens of San Luis Obispo. Councilman Gurnee.stated that he was still.in support of the adoption of Ordinance 604 -A. -He felt it would be a good ordinance and would.put the City Council in a better position to make decisions when.developments came before them for their approval. Councilman Norris stated.that he:.too.was in support of ad option.of.Ordinance.604 -A. He felt it was a good planning tool if administered rationally by both the City J Council and the City staff. Councilman Graham stated that he was.in support of Ordinance 604 -A, felt it was a good .tool for the City administration to.finally.get. a handle on-the utilities used in development. Mayor Schwartz stated that he was in support of adoption of the.Ordinance, it was a good. planning tool, it.was_ arrived at-by a compromise.by community repre- sentatives and by the Ad Hoc Task Force on Resource.Inventory after long public discussion. He too.would support the final adoption of this ordinance. On motion of Councilman-Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Graham Ordinance No..604 -A was introduced for final passage. Finally passed on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Gurnee, Graham, Norris and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: Councilman Brown Mayor Schwartz then announced a public hearing on the adoption..of.Resolution.No. 2685, a resolution of the Council of.the.City.of'San.Luis.Obispo adopting criteria, standards and policies for departmental use in making the facilities determinations required-by Ordinance No..604 -A. No.one appeared before the City Council for or against the adoption of this resolution.. Mayor Schwartz declared the publ "ic hearing closed. 1 1 1 City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 3 Councilman Gurnee stated his only objection was that in the resolution there was no criteria for flood control or flood -prone areas. He felt this was a necessary part of the whole procedure. On motion of Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Graham Resolution No. 2685 was introduced for adoption. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: ' AYES: Councilmen Gurnee, Graham, Norris and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: Councilman Brown On motion of Councilman Gurnee, took formal action to thank the Force, who served so diligently proposal for the City's conside letter thanking each member for Brown absent. seconded by Councilman Graham the Council representatives and members of the Ad Hoc Task and so long to come up with an excellent ration. The Mayor was authorized to write a their contribution. Motion carried, Councilman 3. At this time the City Council held a public hearing on the request of San Luis Transportation for an increase in taxi cab rates as follows: The Finance Department report also stated that a comparison of actual operating results to estimated, revealed that revenues were overestimated by 19 percent and expenses were underestimated by 38 percent. Part of the operating loss suffered by the cab company was the ordinance requiring that cab companies must provide 24 -hour, owner- operated service. Further, the City was presently subsidizing the bus system, which was now in direct competition with taxi cab operations. It was felt that this was one of the contributing factors to the losses by the cab company. In conclusion, it was recommended by the Finance Department that the requested rate increase be granted subject to periodic review and audit as authorized by the City ordinance. ' Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing open. No one appeared for or against the recommended increases. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing closed. Councilman Gurnee stated he would support the recommended rate increase. While he agreed that it was quite high, inflation and the high cost of operation justified the increase. PRESENT REQUESTED RATE RATE Flag drop - first 1 /8th mile $ .70 $1.00 Mileage: per 1 /8th mile .10 per 1 /10th mile .10 Waiting Time - per hour 7.50 9.00 Each Passenger (over two) per passenger .25 -0- ' At the request of the City Council, the City Clerk presented the studies made by the Finance Department reviewing the statements and working papers presented by the CPA for San Luis Transportation justifying their requested increase in taxi cab rates. The last increase was granted on February 4, 1974. Additionally, the Finance Department submitted a list of comparative rates for taxi cab companies within the County of San Luis Obispo, including the - Ventura, Fresno, Oxnard, Santa Maria and Bakersfield areas. This study showed that even with the new rate requested from San Luis Transportation, Inc. it would still place the local rates in the upper portion of the comparative category. The Finance Department report also stated that a comparison of actual operating results to estimated, revealed that revenues were overestimated by 19 percent and expenses were underestimated by 38 percent. Part of the operating loss suffered by the cab company was the ordinance requiring that cab companies must provide 24 -hour, owner- operated service. Further, the City was presently subsidizing the bus system, which was now in direct competition with taxi cab operations. It was felt that this was one of the contributing factors to the losses by the cab company. In conclusion, it was recommended by the Finance Department that the requested rate increase be granted subject to periodic review and audit as authorized by the City ordinance. ' Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing open. No one appeared for or against the recommended increases. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing closed. Councilman Gurnee stated he would support the recommended rate increase. While he agreed that it was quite high, inflation and the high cost of operation justified the increase. City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 4 Councilman Norris stated he questioned the percentage of increase for both the flag drop and the mileage rate as requested. Councilman Graham also questioned the percentage of increase in the mileage rate as requested by San Luis Transportation, even though possibly justified in the report submitted by the Finance Department. On motion of Mayor Schwartz, seconded by Councilman Gurnee the following resolution was introduced: Resolution No. 2699 (1974 Series), a resolution of the Council of ' the City of San Luis Obispo establishing increased taxicab rates. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: AYES: Mayor Schwartz, Councilmen Gurnee and Norris NOES: Councilman Graham ABSENT: Councilman Brown 4. At this time the City. Council discussed with the management staff the methods of implementing the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act for non - exempt, sworn fire and police personnel effective January 1, 1975, if said act was still judged to apply to City personnel. R.D. Miller, Administrative Officer, reviewed for the City Council the discussions held with the management staff and representatives of the police and fire departments regarding making certain basic determinations so that the fire and police departments would comply with the new Fair Labor Standards Act which would become effective January 1, 1975. Further, the concern of the management staff that the City not be penalized nor would the fire and police working conditions would not be consistent with other city personnel. Therefore, it was the recommendation that the City Council discuss, in public, I the proposals by the City management staff in relation to the police officers and fire personnel in connection to the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. For the Fire Department, under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the City declared that the following members of the Fire Department be exempt from the provisions of the Fair-Labor Standards Act: Executive exemption, Fire Chief; Administrative exemption, Battalion Fire Chiefs and Fire Marshals; effective January 1, 1975 vacation, sick leave and holiday benefits would be calculated by converting work days to fire department shifts on a mathematical basis, making the fire department benefits comparable to those for general employees. Therefore, non - exempt, sworn fire department personnel would receive six vacation shifts per year after one year, seven and one -half shifts after five years, nine shifts after ten years, and ten shifts after 20 years. During years when general employees received 11 holidays in a year, said fire personnel would receive five and one -half shifts. During years when general employees receive 13 holidays, said fire personnel would receive six and one -half shifts. As new Federal labor standards become effective in subsequent years, further adjustments would be made on a mathematical basis. The City's intention to make such adjustments was stated in the memorandum of understanding with the Fire Department last spring, 1974. Declaration of the work period would not exceed 28 days. It was thereby stated that monthly salaries were approximate and hourly rates would be calculated for 1975 by dividing the monthly salary by 260 and would be adjusted in future years on a mathematical basis to reflect the lower ' number of hours to be worked by Fire Department personnel. Provision for the latter was included in the current memorandum of understanding with the Firemen's Association. William F. Callaway, President of the Firemen's Association, informed the City Council that the San Luis Obispo Firemen's Association was agreeable to the provisions contained in the City's notice of public discussion and just previously in public. They also agreed with the continuing research being done by the Fire Chief and the administration working out the program of a 15 day work period for 1975 with shifts and holidays on that basis. City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 5 The City Administrative Officer presented a letter from the Police Officers' Association stating that they had not received the notice of public discussion which was to be held on December 2, 1974, until November 27, 1974, and therefore they were unable to meet with the Association members to discuss the matter. The Association was to have received this letter at least ten days prior to the Council meeting, they requested that the Council postpone the discussion of Police personnel matters until the meeting of December 16, 1974. R.D. Miller, Administrative Officer, stated he had no objection and so recommended to the City Council that the discussion of the Police Officers' working conditions be continued to December 16, 1974. On motion of Councilman Norris, seconded by Councilman Graham that the City Council approve the recommendation of the administrative staff for conditions of work under the provisions of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act for 1975 for the fire department personnel, including a 15 -day work cycle. Motion carried, all ayes, Councilman Brown absent. 5. William E. Flory, Director of Parks $ Recreation, presented for the Council's consideration plans and specifications for the construction of press box, concession stand and restroom building for Sinsheimer Park prepared by Wilsey & Ham, consultants for the Sinsheimer Park complex. Mr. Flory stated that the estimate cost at this time was $115,000. Mr. Harry Nakagawara, Wilsey $ Ham, reviewed in detail the plans and specifications for the building to be constructed at Sinsheimer Park. Councilman Gurnee stated that he was opposed to approving the plans and specifications for the press box, concession stand and restrooms at Sinsheimer Park as he felt that the City Council was putting too much tax money into one park development. He felt that the City had put a tremendous amount of money already ' in the baseball complex and other development and felt now that some money should be placed in other City parks and developed for residents of other areas. On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded by Councilman Norris that the City Council approve the plans and specifications for the construction of the press box, concession stand and restroom facility for Sinsheimer Park and authorize the notice to call for bids. Motion carried on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Graham, Norris and Mayor Schwartz NOES: Councilman Gurnee ABSENT: Councilman Brown 6. This item was continued until after Item No. 8. 7. Request from the City of Fresno for support of their appeal of the decision by the Secretary of the Resources Agency and Attorney General in qualifying for Open Space Tax Subventions. State law required the adoption of an Open Space Plan by December 31, 1973. The City of Fresno along with 23 other California cities (over 10,000 population) adopted an Open Space Plan after this deadline. The Secretary ' of the Resources Agency determined that since Fresno missed the deadline for filing of their Open Space Plan, they were now ineligible for Open Space subventions. The City of Fresno was seeking support of other cities in an attempt to avoid either a court or legislative relief by having the Attorney General's opinion modified to accept the late filing of the Open Space Plan. The Attorney General had determined that local governments which did not meet the Open Space Plan deadline should seek relief through amendment of state law. Meanwhile, the Office of Legal Affairs of the Department of Conservation, in an opinion dated May 13, 1974, concluded that subvention payments might.be made even if an Open Space plan was adopted after December 31,1973. Therefore, they were asking support of all cities in California who submitted Open Space Plans after the deadline to support their appeals before the Department of Conservation and the Attorney General. City Council 'Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 6 David Williamson, 'Assistant Administrative Officer,. stated that 23 cities did not file open space plans until after the deadline, including the City _ of San Luis Obispo. He stated that the City of Fresno was correct in saying the Secretary of the Resources Agency and the Attorney General determined that.cities'which missed the filing deadline were ineligible for Open Space subventions. These subventions were.a reimbursement of tax funds lost from agricultural preserves under the:Williamson Act provisions and /or .open space easements. The City of San Luis'Obispo had.neither open space easements nor agricultural - preserves.within the corporate limits of the City, thus the ruling regarding subventions would not-directly affect the.City of San Luis Obispo. However, the City might want to support the City of Fresno in attempting to reverse the.decision regarding subventions if it was the intent of the City to establish agricultural'.prese'rves'or open space easements in the future as part of the open space protection plan. On motion of - Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Graham the'City of San Luis Obispo supported the action: of the:City of Fresno in attempting to reverse the determination made by the Secretary of the Resources Agency:arid.the'Attorney General. Motion carried, Councilman Brown absent. 8. Communication from Chester Jost, property owner at 2400 Broad Street, stating that he was appealing the de.cision.of the Architectural Review Commis- sion and the Tree..Committee.regarding the removal of.seven trees from his property without applying-for a proper permit. He claimed that he did not understand that the removal `of the trees'would be in violation of.City.ordinance. He had-hired a licensed contractor in the tree removal business and was informed that a permit was not necessary. He continued that:his'intention when.purchasing the property was.for the purpose bf.moving a building located at 2650 Broad Street, which was being moved because of the widening of Broad Street by the State Division of Highways. He.stated he went to the Architectural Review Commission'for a permit to move this building to that lot, and it was.at that time discussion occurred about the removal of these :trees.without a..permit. One of th'e conditions for approval by the Tree Committee and.the Architectural Review Commission-was to plant five 36 inch pottedltrees. These-trees would.cost, wholesale, from $275 -$300 plus freight. He said this would cost approximately $400 per tree making a total cost of $2,000 just to replace these trees in addition to_ other landscaping. Mr..Jost.stated he was - willing to-work with the City in finding a reasonable solution to the problem, but he'did not-feel he should be penalized with this type of cost. He-made a. counter offer to .plant six 15 gallon trees in lieu of the 36 .inch potted trees. He then went on to explain to the City Council all of the fine things he.had.done in San Luis Obispo in attempting to clean up old dilapidated buildings and properties and replacing them with modern business. buildings. He concluded by stating that he paid.--approximately $8,000.per year in property taxes.arid he was not going to let.this'tree problem chase him from.San Luis Obispo. The Tree Committee recommended to the City Council the following: RECOMMENDATION I That standard tree.plan tin g requirements be increased to.36 inch box.specimen trees on the Broad and Woodbridge Street.frontages, including-one 15 gallon tree as per the plot plan designated Jost No. 1`, .11/22/74. ' . ' RECOMMENDATION II In light of the-temporary construction easement on the property by the - State, a bond be filed by Mr. Jost in the amount of $2;788.50 with the City for the cost of planting 36 inch specimen trees in accordance with the conditions of the'Tree Committee -and the Architectural Review Commis- sion. This bond would be'utilized for installation of the trees if not done so by Mr. Jost. 1 ICJ A written agreement approved by the City Attorney be developed enabling the City to proceed with the trees when and if this became necessary. City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 7 and agreed to by Mr. Jost should planting and care of these The Park Department and Tree Committee believed that the above recommendations for planting were reasonable and necessary to correct the damage done by the removal of trees from this property. They believed the recommendations should be carried out whether or not the Council decided to prosecute Mr. Jost and Mr. Layton for the violation of the City ordinance. Dennis Wheeler, contractor, spoke in behalf of Mr. Jost stating he felt the City's punishment for a minor violation was too great for an error made unconsciously by the property owner. He urged that the City Council compromise their demands and that some fair decision be arrived at to replace the trees. Vern Dillon, contractor, spoke in support of the Jost appeal. He did not feel that the subject trees were worth the $4,000 as estimated by the Tree Committee. Councilman Gurnee stated he agreed with the determination of the Tree Committee, and he felt that the City Council should require the conditions of the ordinance be complied with by the property owner. He felt that the punishment fit the crime in this case, as ignorance of the law was no excuse. Councilman Norris stated he disagreed with the recommendation of the Tree Committee. He felt no one could intelligently appraise the value of a tree, particularly when the tree was appraised after removal. He felt this was a wrong approach. He felt the-.Council.should require the property owner to replace the removed trees with 15 gallon trees. Councilman Graham, a member of the Tree Committee, felt the City should require compliance with the Tree Ordinance, and the recommendation of the Tree Committee should be followed. He felt the Tree Committee had been fair in determining the values and had been consistent with past Tree Committee recommendations. ' A.J. Shaw, City Attorney, explained that the violation was a misdemeanor and both the property owner and contractor who actually removed the trees were in violation and subject to misdemeanor prosecution. He said this request was for a criminal complaint. The Council could request replacement by the developer rather than criminal action. Mayor Schwartz stated that he supported the Tree Committee's recommendation and felt that the violation of the Tree Ordinance should be enforced and felt the Tree Committee recommendations were reasonable. On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded by Councilman Gurnee that the City Council deny the appeal of Chester Jost and supported the recommendations of the Architectural Review Commission and the Tree Committee. Motion carried, all ayes, Councilman Brown absent. Mayor Schwartz declared a recess at 8:40 p.m. The City Council reconvened at 8:50 p.m. with all Councilmen present with the exception of Councilman Brown. 6. At this time the City Council considered the request of Councilman Gurnee to consider a resolution requesting that Cal Poly rp epare an EIR, Environ- mental Impact Report, on any future increases in enrollment and for its envisioned ultimate enrollment. ' Councilman Gurnee presented his resolution stating that over the years Cal Poly had grown without any consideration of its impact upon its neighbor, the City of San Luis Obispo, which had resulted in inadequate housing, induced growth with its acute pressures for rapid urban expansion and increased environmental deteriora- tion had caused an excessive consumption finite resources, facilities and services, had distorted the housing price and wages to the detriment of the local citizens, students and faculty, and other affected members of the community. He stated the present Council was committed to a policy of carefully.managed and controlled growth to protect the City's character, resources and outstanding environmental qualities from the costly effects of rapid urban expansion, sprawl, and insensitive land development. But, without some cooperation from the University, it was impossible for the City Council to follow such a policy as long as the enrollment continued to increase regardless of the City's influence or control over such increases. City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 8 While these enrollment increases at the University continued, it was difficult, if not impossible, for the City to cope with such stimulated demand on the City's housing supply and its limited public resources and facilities. It did not allow the City sufficient time for necessary planning to provide for the expansion of the University in keeping with the City's policy of managed and controlled growth. It was his suggestion that under the public resources code of the State of California, which required all State agencies to prepare and certify the completion of an informational document known as an EIR on any project they propose to carry out which may have a significant effect on the environment. It was his suggestion that such a report should include a detailed statement setting forth the following: a) the environmental impact of the proposed action b) any adverse environmental effects which could not be avoided if the proposal was implemented c) measures proposed to minimize the impact d) alternatives to the proposed action e) relationship between local short -term uses of the environment and the maintenance and enhancement of long -term productivity f) any irreversible environmental changes which would be involved in the proposed action should it be implemented g) the growth inducing impact of the proposed action He, therefore, asked his fellow Councilmen to request Cal Poly and the University Board of Trustees and any and all other state agencies or board responsible for or involved in any decisions by the State of California to: 1. Permit any additional increase in enrollment over 13,900 students, effective January 1, 1975; or 2. Permit any increase in the maximum envisioned future enrollment at Cal Poly to prepare an environmental impact report, hold public hearings thereon, and in all other respects to comply with the requirements of the California Environ- mental Quality Act. The City could render any necessary assistance towards the preparation of such an environmental impact statement. Further, that the Council state its intent to view such an environmental impact assessment as a positive tool for identifying problems and conflicts caused by University enrollment increases, designing mitigation measures to resolve such problems, identifying less conflicting alternatives to the existing methods of increasing enrollments, and stating positive programs to maximize those benefits of the University to the community which carried the least economic and environmental costs and liabilities. It was not the intent of the City to view such an environmental impact report as a predetermined method to obstruct University enrollment increases regardless of any environmental impact findings or consequences. Mayor Schwartz stated that before opening this matter for public discussion, he had consulted with attorneys and the president of the University, and he did not feel he had any conflict of interest being the Mayor of the City of San Luis Obispo, but also is an employee of the University. Therefore, he would continue to chair the meeting. He continued that for many years, there had been many concerns by the citizens of the City and by students and faculty at the University as to the impact the University had upon the City of San Luis Obispo. Not only the economic impact, but also the impact of students and faculty on the housing availability within the community. He concluded that the matter of an EIR for Cal Poly on future enrollment increases and its effect on the City of San Luis Obispo must be carefully studied. He hoped that the meeting this evening would explore all facets of this effort and effect upon the City of San Luis Obispo by continued growth of Cal Poly. Councilman Norris questioned the Mayor's conclusion of his not having a conflict of interest as an employee of Cal Poly and Mayor of the City. He stated that it was his understanding that the Mayor held a very high position at the University, and he was not merely an employee, but also directed some of the policy determinations. Therefore, he felt that there was a definite conflict as his job depended on the growth of the University. 1 1 1 City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 9 A.J. Shaw, City Attorney, stated for the Council's information and the public Government Code Section 3625, Subsection B $ C dealing with conflicts of interest as it applied to the Mayor's position at Cal Poly. Councilman Gurnee again reviewed several of the proposed sections of the resolution and then explained in detail what he hoped to be the results of the proposed resolution. He stated that a study he had made showed that the 1961 -1974 group, Cal Poly grew over three times, while the population of the City only doubled. The Capital Outlay during the same period of time also grew over three times. He felt there was definitely a correlation between cost to the City and growth at Cal Poly. Robert Strong, Planning Director, explained for the City Council the purposes of the State mandated EIR's on public projects. He explained what these reports must contain, who must prepare them, and what the state law required in their preparation. He concluded that he felt the information requested by the proposed resolution would be a great asset to the City of San Luis Obispo in preparation of their General Plan and would also help in future planning decisions made by the City. Robert E. Kennedy, President, California Polytechnic State University, appeared before the City Council and spoke in support of the cooperation that had developed between Cal Poly and the City of San Luis Obispo over many, many years. He then reviewed some of the activities of Cal Poly and the cooperation with the City since he had been connected with it in the 1940's. He stated that Cal Poly had always tried to keep the City and County of San Luis Obispo posted on the General Plans and felt the campus at Cal Poly including student population, faculty, housing, construction, etc. He then listed dates and meetings with the faculty and staff members at Cal Poly with public officials both from the City and County over the last 20 years. He listed meetings that had been held including City and County officials who attended these meetings. He was sure the City was aware of what was being done at Cal Poly. He then reviewed population figures for Cal Poly students over the years showing that City and County officials had known just what was being planned numerically for Cal Poly. He concluded that he felt the University had always attempted to keep the City aware of the University's plans and student population and building programs. He felt that it was always understood that the full -time equivalent students of 15,000 would be the ceiling established by the University Board of Trustees for the college. He then presented a report to the City Council dated December 2, 1974 reviewing Cal Poly's enrollment at this time and a complete report of what was happening on the campus. He then reviewed Councilman Gurnee's proposed resolution objecting to several of the M-IEREAS clauses giving the impression that there had been no cooperation between the City and the University. He felt the opposite was true. He stated that the City Council had at no time in the past 20 years ever notified the University just what the goals were to population, development, etc. He sometimes really questioned whether the City had ever adopted a policy of carefully managed and controlled growth to protect the City's character. He said the City again was involved in a major undertaking in a General Plan and he could remember over a number of years where this had been gone over and over again. He said regardless of the outcome of this evening's meeting or the Council's deliberations, he wished that the City Council and the citizens and residents of San Luis Obispo to know that the University would never change its policy and would always attempt to keep the City and County officials aware of what was happening at the University, whether it was student population, faculty, programs or whatever. ' Mr. Chapman, Associate Counsel for the Board of Trustees, stated he did not feel that the State law was intended to apply to enrollment of college and university students, but only applied to land development or construction upon land. He then reviewed what he felt was the legal interpretations where the EIR law did not apply. 10:00 p.m. Councilman Brown appeared at the Council meeting and took his place. City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 10 President�Kennedy, Cal Poly.,.submitted:for:_the Council's consideration a substitute resolution for.their adoption. .This-resolution stated.that.the Council recognized that the existence of Cal Poly was integral to the economic vitality and.the social and cultural well -being of the-City... The.University had over the years cooperated with.the:City in providing information and.: cooperation 'as,to its plans and the ..possible impact of its growth on the City. The.City had serious.concerns with the overall planning relating to.housing,:.growth, services and economic.factors: Therefore, "it• -should be resolved by.the!..Council of the City of.San.Luis Obispo that the Council request that-California__Polytechnic State University and the .State University Board of Trustees continue their past policy.of full-cooperation in providing the City necessary information regarding enrollment and`the growth of the University, and further, that.the.Council request that the University augment:this past cooperation.in.any way it sees feasible to aid the City and .the community at large in solving the.various problems which had•been cited .and in providing a united front in reaching solutions.which shall-not only benefit the City, but also benefit the University.in fulfilling its.educational mission. President - Kennedy stated upon question that there was now about 2,500 single students.on campus.and they did not .anticipate further development of single student accommodations on the campus.. But;-.he. stated the University..was.very interested in-attempting to procure and provide some housing for married.students either on. or off the.campus. He concluded 'that .the: University had no objection. to con- tinuing to.supply information to the City on growth, etc. but he would oppose a formal law,that would require an EIR..upon every change of student enrollment. Walter.:Crawford, Chorro "Street,.stated he-.would like to.see the cooperation between the University -and..City continue on an active basis. " ._Vern.Dillon, builder, stated-he, was "in opposition to the adoption ".by the Council of the proposed resolution by Councilman Gurnee. He.also-stated"that under existing.City - regulation it was.almost - economically impossible.to put a project together with all the roadblocks that had :been put by the-City before-developers in the last few years. Dave Garth; Executive Director of.the.Chamber.of Commerce., submitted to-the City Council a.resolution adopted by the Board.of.Directors of the Chamber of Commerce of the City.of:San Luis Obispo recognizing the impact of Cal Poly upon the com- munity and urging..that nothing be done to effect past cooperative programs with the City of-San Luis Obispo. Homer Odom, Member of the Board of Directors of the Downtown Association,.submitted a resolution of the Board of Directors.of the Downtown Association urging the City Council not to adopt legislation.which-would hamper the-continued growth.of Cal Poly,or effect its impact upon.the.City.of San Luis Obispo, and urging.-that the City and the Downtown Association continue to support the President of the University .and the University. Frank Exter, bn behalf of the Ad Hoc Task.Force,-recommended that.any:development or construction plans by a private . or public.agency should-not ' ify the City so that structures would not be overburdened:.`.He-:concluded that the ommittee did not wish to:stop Cal Poly's growth, but "only that the City-acquire the necessary information on growth plans that effect the City's facilities. Henry Rible, Mariner's Cove; urged the City to have'the:federal congress help.. the City and Cal�Poly acquire the.necessary funds to build houses. Mrs. Janet_Kourakis, member of the Board of Directors, League of Women.Voters, made the following statement: .As had been said so many times-.before to.: this -Council, the members of.the League of.Women Voters of San Luis Obispo-strongly.supported long -range and . comprehensive land'.use planning as a•reasonable and necessary function of'local government. They also believed that the environmental effects of land use decisions must be investigated. Given these positions, they strongly urged the City Council to support the resolution that had been presented.requesting Cal Poly to prepare_an environ- mental impact report for any future increases in enrollment. Given the well known impact the University's growth.had.on this City, they failed to see how the planning process could be comprehensively undertaken in this City-without such information. 1 u City Council Minutes December 2, 1974 Page 11 Finally, they would like to state that they did not see this resolution as one which in any way attempted to control the University's growth. It was simply a request for information. Mrs. Pat Barlow, Chairwoman, Human Relations Commission, stated that the Human Rolations Commission was interested in plans for growth at Cal Poly so that they might plan necessary facilities for student housing, recreation, etc. Larry Jacobson, student, stated he felt that the City Council and University must get together in order to provide adequate.housing for the students or the City should control the growth of the City to protect the students. Kevin O'Connor, ASI representative, stated the students would support any action of cooperation between the City and the University staff, particularly as it would affect the students living in the City. He felt that the request for filing an EIR was good and it would be a good move to solve future problems before they happened. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing closed. Councilman Gurnee stated he felt that his resolution simply asked that the University file an EIR on student population growth so that the City could study the implications of this growth on the City's facilities. All he was asking was that the University comply with State law and file statements with the City on University growth, and its implications on City government and its citizens. Councilman Norris stated that he was in favor of the University filing EIR's on capital construction projects only. But, he would oppose EIR's on student population. He felt the University should comply with State law on capital development, but he would oppose the resolution as proposed by Councilman Gurnee. He felt this resolution came out of a no- growth handbook. Finally, he stated he would support any action that would give the City good develop- ment and planning. He concluded that the housing problem in San Luis Obispo ' was not a Cal Poly problem, but a City problem and should be solved by the City. He also felt that City policy, staff and rules were hurting housing and limiting housing for the City. He felt that the City should move ahead with improving their utilities for housing development. Councilman Brown stated that he was opposed to requiring the University to Tile an EIR statement and would oppose adoption of the proposed resolution. He suggested that a Council committee be appointed to meet with University officials and get the necessary information for the City to make decisions on development and growth. He would be happy to support this type of committee. Councilman Graham stated he felt the City Council recognized the fact that there was a need for planning for the community, and that the City now had a forward looking planning program. He also felt that the Council was attempting to remedy this problem by adding staff and spending great amounts of public funds to update their planning. He also felt the City should take some action in the area of housing. He would support adopting a resolution, but modified from the strong language as presented. Mayor Schwartz felt that possibly the best approach would be to follow Councilman Brown's suggestion and form a committee to meet with University officials to come up with an adequate joint information system. He did not agree with the intent of the Gurnee resolution, but he did agree that the City needed information possessed by the University so that the City ' could make decisions with full knowledge of what was going on at Cal Poly. He felt that the problem facing the City was not one with Cal Poly, but with the 19 statewide campuses of colleges and universities systems who worked under state policy. He felt that this might be the area for the City to work in to get the information requested. He concluded he would support the concept of a subcommittee with Cal Poly officials to get similar infor- mation as required in an EIR, although he did not feel one month was enough time to work this out. City Council Minutes December 2, 197 4 Page 12 Councilman Gurnee urged his fellow Councilmen to adopt the resolution requiring an EIR on student growth as he felt without any formal document nothing would happen. The City would only continue to react to actions of the University. President Kennedy stated he could see no reason why a staff task force could not get any and all information needed for joint decisions on City and University matters. On motion of Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Brown that the City staff meet with the University staff members to define and outline needs for a joint study with preliminary report to be delivered to the City Council by December 16, 1974. Motion carried, all ayes. 10. At this time the City Council held a public hearing on a proposal to transfer revenue sharing funds in the amount of $36,883.94 plus accrued interest from the Madonna Road Outlet from Laguna Lake and related work project to Improvements to the Water System, Los Osos Valley - Lower Higuera Street. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing open. No one appeared before the City Council for or against the proposal. Mayor Schwartz declared the public hearing closed.
