BUCHON STREET Council continued its public hearing to consider traffic operations on Buchon Street (continued from 8/31/82). Wayne Peterson, City Engineer, reviewed the Council agenda report (file no. 462) stating it was staff's recommendation to: 1) maintain two -way traffic operation on Buchon Street; 2) after providing notices required under the Circulation Element of the General Plan, post four -way stop signs at Santa Rosa and Buchon; 3) after providing notices as required in the Circulation Element of the General Plan, remove parking from the north side of Buchon Street between Osos and Johnson Avenue and on both sides of Buchon Street 100 feet either side of the intersections of Nipomo, Chorro and Santa Rosa Streets. He also submitted an additional report which showed the accident rate on the various local streets, speed and width between curbs. Mike Dolder, Fire Chief, reviewed the concerns of the Fire Department explaining that the emergency response time to the San Luis Drive /Johnson Avenue area was being increased by 1 minute, 12 seconds unless the street went back as a one way or additional parking is removed. Councilman Settle was concerned as to how the residents would be impacted if the parking were removed considering that many of them did not have garages. Councilwoman Dovey suggested using the south side of the street rather than the north to remove the parking as many of the others had driveways. She also questioned why a stop sign wasn't suggested at the corner of Buchon and Chorro. She felt a four -way stop at Nipomo would be more beneficial safety wise for children going to and from Emerson School. Wayne Peterson explained that a stop at Buchon and Chorro would greatly impact the surrounding streets and felt a crossing guard would be more appropriate than a four -way stop at Nipomo. Upon question, Police Captain Englert stated trucks from sizes of •1/2 to 3/4 ton were allowed to traverse Buchon which made it very difficult for other vehicles trying to pass. Dave Romero, Public Services Director, explained that staff was recom- mending that parking be restricted on the north side of the street so that northeast -bound vehicles traveling in response to emergencies would be more nearly in the center of the pavement rather than along the gutter where they would travel if parking were restricted on the south City Council Minutes Tuesday, October 5, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 5 ,.side. In this area of town there are a number of non - standard catch basins and rough intersections making high speed travel along the gutter very hazardous. He also explained that if parking were restricted on the south side, those residents returning from Johnson Avenue area and ;prohibited from turning westerly on Buchon Street, would find it practi- cally impossible to drive to a parking space between Toro and Johnson Avenue. Those residents would be in a position of having to make a U -turn near Safeway in order to approach the Johnson - Buchon intersection from the north. Mayor Billig declared the public hearing open. Dave Hennings, President of Old Town Neighborhood Association and speaking as their representative, stated they were in support of retain - ing Buchon as a two -way street with stops at the problem intersections. Five,primary reasons were: 1) One -way streets are arterial streets and have higher accident rates, and Buchon is not considered an arterial street by residents or in Circulation Element; 2) the properties of Buchon are primarily residential and residential,streets.'are.- characterized as two -way streets with four -way stops at the problem intersections; 3) when Buchon first became a one -way street, it was expected to become a commercial district, this, however, has not happened; 4) costs would not warrant changing it back; and 5) less safety. Rosemary. Warner, 1768 Pereira Drive, spoke in support of Buchon remain - ing,a two -way street as she felt it would slow traffic and would be safer. Keith Miller, resident living on the corner of Nipomo and Buchon Streets, supported the return of the one-way.-street. He felt it "would be safer for bicycles, mopeds, and pedestrians.:i Marybell Romero, 2057 Skylark Lane, spoke in support of Buchon being returned to a one -way street., She felt,its present condition:was too dangerous, there was poor visibility and it was too easy to hit pedest- rians. Michelle Collier, 669 Sandercock, stated it was difficult to traverse the street when trucks are coming in the opposite direction. She would support it being returned to a one -way street. John Bria, 670 Buchon and a resident in the area for ten years, suggested a stop sign be put at the corner of Nipomo and Broad. If this street remains two -way, he felt a four -way stop would be more ...appropriate there. He agreed with Police.and.Fire "Departments that it should be returned,to a one -way. Jim Delaney, resident in Shell Beach and bicyclist who uses:Buchon Street tiding to Cal Poly every day, felt it is extremely dangerous as a one -way street to the point that he now uses the freeway. Mrs.- Edwin,Callis, 400 Del.Blanco,:Pismo,.agreed, with the previous• speaker,that more stop signs be required. Chris Hoover 1144 Morro Street, was concerned:that. parking not be removed on Buchon.for three-reasons: 1) The senior citizens center, 2) Mitchell Park, and 3) the small church. - This-would result:in a severe impact on an already poor parking area.:. He would recommend,a four -way stop installation instead. Chuck Davis,:677 Buchon•.Street, spoke in support of a one -way street. Penny Rappa felt this was a planning issue and unfortunately staff .review was limited to this neighborhood.and not all neighborhoods in the city. In her opinion the traffic rate has been slowed—with—the street City Council Minutes Tuesday, October 5, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 6 being two -way. She did agree with the use of a four -way stop and would be opposed to the removal of any parking. Dora Harder, 770 Buchon Street and a resident -of-the area for 24 years, took exception with the Fire Department's statement that their vehicles did not use Buchon now. Mike Dolder, Fire Chief, explained the fire trucks do use Buchon Street but only for the portion that has a 40 -foot width; otherwise, they are required to detour from Buchon and that causes the additional 1 minuts, 14 second delay to certain areas. Jake Jacobson, 1057 Buchon Street, was in support of the two = way:'. He felt it lowered the speeds, the fire trucks still use Buchon without any difficulty; and he would be opposed to the elimination of parking. More traffic is coming onto Buchon but it has become safer as a result of the two way. Peg Pinard, 714 Buchon Street, was in support of keeping Buchon as a two -way for several reasons. Regarding the street width, she felt more than half the streets in town had the same width as Buchon so that would not be a reason in itself to change it. With regard to the 100 -foot red zone to remove parking, which is being suggested by staff, she felt it would encourage right turns and straight ahead traffic which is not what Buchon should be. She felt to change it to a one -way would increase the speed of traffic which was not appropriate for a residential neighborhood. She would be in support of four -way stops. One -way would increase traffic flow and speed. - Michelle Pinard, approximately eight years old and resident of Buchon Street, stated that the traffic had been too fast when it was a•one -way and not safe for children. Lucille Pool, 1170 Buchon Steet and 20 -year resident, supported the two -way because the property values would go down if it was returned as a one -way. Ed Salsa, living at the corner of Morro and Pismo Street, also spoke in support of the two -way. He felt there would be less traffic leaving it at it is. Dave Romero, speaking as a resident living at 2057 Skylark Lane, urged the Council to consider seriously prior to adopting any solution which would impair the fire response time to the Johnson Avenue neighborhood near French Hospital. As a resident he was not particularily concerned whether Buchon was a one -way street or whether it was a two -way street with a parking restriction, but he was vitally concerned with the possible loss of 1 minute, 15 seconds in response to a fire at his residence or to an emergency medical response. Mayor Billig declared the public hearing closed. Councilman Settle stated he could support the continuance of the two -way street. The long -term effect would preserve this neighborhood area. He did not support the removal of parking on Buchon because there is such a critical shortage of parking already. He would support the four -way stop at Santa Rosa and retain the parking as it currently exists., He suggested staff be directed to research the possibilities of putting additional stop signs at Nipomo and Chorro as well. Councilman Dunin felt Buchon was somewhere between a collector, arterial and residential street. Initially, he was opposed to the two - way'_- conversion and at this time he would be supportive of it being returned to a one -way. He felt the street was a mixed -use between commercial, residential, and multiple residential. He felt the Police Department could monitor the traffic more closely. He felt better signing could also be installed. He could not go along with removing the 35 parking spaces but he would be in favor of returning the street to a one -way. City Council Minutes Tuesday, October 5, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 7 Councilwoman Dovey agreed with comments made by Councilman Settle in support of the two -way, four -way stop signs, and directing staff to research the possibility of a four -way stop at the other two locations on a trial basis. She felt Buchon was a residential street as stated in the Circulation Element. She felt putting in bike routes along an alternate parallel street would help combat the safety problem for bicyclists on Buchon. She could not support the removal of parking. She was concerned about the fire response. She would like staff to ' continue to monitor and give this more time as a two -way street. She also suggested a better sign being put in to keep people from turning left off of Buchon. Councilman Griffin wished to thank the neighborhood for coming down and stating their feelings. He was in support of the two -way street and would like to give it additional time before making any changes. He would be supportive of a four -way stop. Conceptually he could support four -way stops also at Nipomo and Chorro. He could not support the removal of parking and to turn all of it into 40 to 50 -foot widths on this street, would be a last alternative. He would like to see a review of Buchon after one year. He, too, was concerned with the fire response and suggested alternatives such as signal upgrading or mechanisms in the fire trucks to allow better fire response. Mayor Billig agreed with many comments made by the majority of Council and supported the two -way street. After brief discussion it was moved by Mayor Billig, seconded by Councilman Settle, to leave Buchon as a two -way street with four -way stops approved for Santa Rosa and Buchon, and Nipomo and Buchon, with staff to review additional locations for possible four -way stop. No parking to be removed on Buchon Street; staff directed to place greater emphasis on traffic enforcement and to monitor and conduct appropriate studies. Council to review in one year.

REQUEST FOR UTILITY SERVICES /ANNEXATION - UPS Council held a public hearing to consider request by United Parcel Service for connection to city sewer and water services and future annexation; 3601 Sacramento Drive.-- Toby Ross', Community Development Director, reviewed the Council agenda report' (f-i'le' no., 414) and explained he was not asking the Council to City Council Minutes Tuesday, October 5, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 10 take any action this evening; however, the future recommendation would be to: 1) Affirm the approval of a negative declaration of environmental impact by the Community Development Director; 2) initiate amendments to the General Plan Land Use Element map and text to;change the designation of the property bounded by Capitolio Way; Sacramento Drive, Industrial Way and Broad Street from "rural industrial" to "service commercial /light industrial" and to allow services to be extended prior to annexation in certain limited circumstances; 3) initiate pre - zoning of this area; the properties with frontage on Broad 1 Street will become service commercial upon annexation and the other parcels will become industrial; 4) initiate an amendment to the sewer service plan adopted February 1980 to indicate this area will be shown in a new category 2 -C rather than 3 and to describe category:2 7C�as: Minor industrial expansion area; population equivalent - 1,000:..Condi- tions - pre- zoning; annexation and to reduce the population equivalent indicated for group #3 to 400; 5) direct staff to prepare a resolution applying to the local agency Formation Commission for annexation'.of the area bounded by Capitolio, Sacramento, Industrial Way and Broad_,Street; and 6) direct staff to prepare an agreement for provision of water on an emergency basis with appropriate fees and conditions. As of tonight he stated he had only received four responses from property owners whom he had notified, and their comments were basically "wait and see" stance. Although the request was only for the UPS location, staff was asking the Council to look at the possibility of the annexation of a larger portion of property. Mayor Billig declared the public hearing open. Marty Signarelli, UPS representative, stated that occupancy of the UPS facility is contingent upon conditions set by the Health Department and one was the elimination of the poor water quality. Water was etching the vehicle paint, it could not be consumed, plants were dying; and it was causing low employee morale. He had been in contact with the County with regard to possible annexation by the City and they were-receptive. ' Councilwoman Dovey questioned whether an analysis of water quality had been done at the time that UPS first chose this site. Mr. Signarelli explained that he had not been involved at the time the UPS site was chosen, but he understood that a consultant had made a preliminary determination and that water quality had not been a problem at that time. Dave Romero, Public Services Director, stated this general area has had an on -going reputation for poor water, both with wells failing as well as poor quality. Ned Rogoway, representing Williams Bros. Market and the Filipponi properties which are lots 90 and 91 located near the UPS property, stated that currently they have a large supermarket located on. the property with enough land to develop a shopping center and off - street parking. An application for change of land use classification from industrial to commercial retail categories was presently being consid- ered by the County. He reviewed-the history of the project first approved by the County in 1965 and based upon that plan, the property was rezoned C -1 -N to facilitate the entire shopping center... When the County's land use element was under consideration in 1980, City staff requested the property be reclassified for industrial uses: .The County responded to the request and converted the land to an industrial 1 category contrary to the owners intent to develop a shopping center as initially agreed. It was only a few months later the Edna /Islay Specific Plan showed a neighborhood shopping center a few hundred yards away on the same street and was subsequently approved. Williams Bros. Corporation intends to pursue the completion of the shopping center and would be presenting the matter before the County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors in the near future. If the City were willing to accept the plans of Williams Bros. for a shopping center at:the' location, they would look towards annexation if a mutual benefit could be demonstrated; however, without such expression from the City, they City Council Minutes Tuesday, October 5, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 11 would continue to protest the inclusion of the Williams Bros. and Filipponi properties into the annexation proceedings. Henry Hammer stated he was concerned with the amount of water being wasted by UPS. He would urge the Council to require that UPS recycle the water used to wash the trucks. Mayor Billig declared the public closed. Councilman Griffin stated he was not prepared to take any action this evening as he felt that there was a much broader policy issue at stake, and he would like additional time to evaluate and staff to bring back additional information. Councilwoman Dovey agreed with comments by Mr. Griffin and although the request was by a single property owner for the possibility of annexation, it should not be handled in a piece -meal basis to isolate this one property from the other properties that would be affected. Councilman Dunin felt this was more of a policy call than one of a lack of water. The problem results in part from the passage of the Prop G measure, and he too would want additional information prior to making a decision. Councilman Settle agreed this was a policy issue, not just a hook -up for city services. He would need additional research for the long -range plari. for extension.of services and capacity. He too would not want to go :on a piece -meal basis;.he.would like staff to:examine additional alternatives -and what would be the consequences.for the overall area down to Edna /Islay. Councilman Griffin questioned if this would be:an appropriate time to bring to the County Planning Commission's attention the problem of this 'property owner as an example of poor decision - making in the past regarding land use issues, and that we state it in a positive manner. Councilman Dunin felt this was a post Prop G issue and that-the Council should be looking at this much closer with the possibility of annexing all possible areas and felt the City had created the problem, not the County. He felt the City was growing from the outside in, rather than the inside out, a result of poor planning. Upon general consensus Council agreed to continue this item for addi- tional staff input and further exploration of alternatives. (5 -0) 8. SOLAR ENERGY REQUIREMENTS Council considered an ordinance which would provide for Solar Water Heating Regulations and the possible development of an informational pamphlet to outline costs and savings for pool /spa use. Toby'Ross, Community Development Director, briefly reviewed the Council agenda report. (file no. 494)f, with the recommendation that the ordinance be introduced to print and explained that this would delete the•pool and spa requirements for solar water heating. Additionally, staff would develop with the assistance of solar water heating advocates, an informational pamphlet that would outline costs and savings for various • levels of assumed pool /spa use. Mayor Billig opened the item for public discussion. No one spoke for or against the proposed ordinance. Councilman Dunin questioned Mr. Ross with regard to the difference between the ordinance and State regulations. Toby Ross responded that the essential additional regulation that's not currently required by the State would be the requirement that new single family dwellings provide access to roof area which is then plumbed for eventual use with a solar collector for water heating and also, to City Council Minutes Tuesday, October 5, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 12 require large heated water users to analyze the cost effectiveness of solar as part of their proposal if they.are not planning to use solar or waste heated water sources. Councilman Dunin requested staff notify any individuals or. organizations i.e., the building and pool industries before this comes back to Council. Councilman Griffin posed the question whether this was compatible with the energy element. Toby. Ross explained that staff was looking at it, and it would be coming back with the energy element amendments in the near future. ' . Councilman Griffin felt there was a definite need.to conserve energy on all fronts.' - Mayor Billig requested that if any administrative costs were incurred but not covered by the ordinance, for staff to bring back a draft fee resolution. Glen Matteson stated he was not speaking for Jack Kellerman,..Building Inspector, but it was his impression that no additional costs would be expected. On motion of Councilwoman Dovey, seconded by- Councilman Settle,.the following ordinance was introduced: Ordinance No..938.(1982 :Series), an ordinance of the Council of the City of San Luis Obispo providing for Solar Water Heating Regulations and the direction to staff to develop an informational pamphlet outlining costs and savings for pool /spa use.
