FINAL PASSAGE OF ORDINANCE NO. 941 - ZONING REGULATIONS AMENDMENTS Council held a public hearing to consider the final passage.of.Ordinance No. 941, an ordinance revising the Zoning Regulations concerning proce- dures, property development standards and uses allowed in various zones (continued from 8/31/82, 9/21/829 10/26/82 and 11/16/82). Toby'Ross, Community Development Director, briefly reviewed the Zoning Regulations Amendments stating Council had reviewed this on several occasions and it was now ready for its final passage. Mayor-Billig declared the public hearing open. No one spoke for or against the proposed Zoning Regulations. Mayor Billig declared the public closed. Councilman Settle stated that he would be unable to support the ordi- nance in its final form as he'felt it was too restrictive in nature with ' regard to down zoning and reduction in density making many properties non- conforming.

' Councilwoman Dovey stated the committee would be proceeding diligently She urged staff to proceed with the preparation of an ordinance establish- ing criteria and a permanent Cultural Heritage Committee.

P.C.C. ADVERTISING PROPOSAL Council considered a'resolution to approve an agreement with Paul Karlen Communications Design to provide advertising services for the Promo- tional Coordinating Committee for the.end of fiscal year 1982 -83:, Geoff Grote, Assistant Administrative Officer.and.staff.member.to. the Promotional Coordinating Committee, reviewed the Council Agenda Report (file 41059), with the recommendation that the.Council.adopt the proposed agreement. The Promotional Coordinating Committee had recommended the contract be for the full amount.of.$28,500... This included those monies left remaining in the account after subtracting the expenditures for advertisements in Sunset Magazine and the Los Angeles:Times. He would further recommend that $2500 of the $28,500 be witheld until Council had an opportunity to review the matter of printing City of San Luis Obispo maps. The Chamber of Commerce in the past had matched city funds to print the maps on .a 50/50 basis. Margaret Bond, member of the Promotional Coordinating Committee, spoke in support of the agreement.and.was available.for any questions. Councilman Griffin stated he would urge the Promotional•Coordinating Committee to periodically report back to the City Administrative Offi- cer, monitoring the expenses of the advertising company, as this is a real departure from current policy. Councilman Dunin agreed with Councilman Griffin; he felt this was a sizable departure from current policy, and he would like to see a Study Session with the Promotional Coordinating Committee to discuss the advertising policy. Councilman Settle stated he could also support a Study Session prior to making determination on this item. Councilwoman Dovey stated she was strongly in support of the agreement and the committee had spent many months in making its.decision. She reminded the Council, too, that the contract would only be for the remainder of this fiscal year which was less than.6 months.': Councilman Dunin felt a Study Session was necessary as he wished•to relook at the entire policy and the basic structure of the Promotional Coordinating Committee. He felt there might be a lack of expertise with the current members on the committee insofar as advertising was concerned. After brief discussion it was moved by Councilman. Griffin, seconded by Councilwoman Dovey, to adopt the resolution approving the contract with Karlen Communications Design.. Motion failed on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmembers Griffin and Dovey NOES: Councilmembers Dunin,.Settle and.Mayor Billig ABSENT: None On motion of Councilman Dunin, seconded by Councilman Settle, to contin- ue this item for a joint Study Session with the Promotional Coordinating Committee at the first available Study Session of the City Council. Motion carried on the following roll call vote: 1 City Council Minutes Tuesday, December 7, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 7 AYES: Councilmembers Dunin; Settle and Mayor Billig NOES: Councilmembers Dovey and Griffin ABSENT: None 7. HILLSIDE PLANNING PROGRAM Council held a public hearing to consider the Hillside Planning Program concerning preservation of open space areas and limiting development on hillsides surrounding the San Luis Obispo•community (continued from 11/23/82). Toby Ross, Community Development Director, briefly reviewed the Hillside Planning Program explaining the six areas to be discussed: 1)- Yancy's Hill, 2)- Luneta Drive, 3)- High School area near the Hospital, 4)- Goldtree Tract, 5)- Southwood Drive, and 6)- Maino /Madonna properties. --He was recommending that the Council open the hearing, accept all public testimony, then close the public portion.of the hearing; and continue the'meeting to January 11, 1983. Mayor Billig declared the public hearing open. John Ashbaugh, 979 Osos Street; spoke to Area 5, the Southwood Drive Area, and stated he was representing the.property owners Roger Brown and Doctor Charles Putman. He questioned if the paragraph on page 25 of the report concerning sensitive sites was the only recommended text addition. Staff replied it was, although other criteria would apply as well which is found in the beginning of the text as applied to all Hillside Planning areas. Mr: Ashbaugh stated the owners were in support of the Planning 'Commission recommendation at this time and that staff's recommendation would further limit the urban reserve line. Susan Hubbard, representing the League of Women Voters, then read into the record a letter dated December 7, 1982 as• follows: '•'In keeping with our position.supporting orderly:land use, the League of Women'Voters of San Luis Obispo has been historical - ly concerned with hillside development policies and;- there- fore, applauds the efforts of the City Council, Planning Commission, and planning staff to develop a. comprehensive hillside program. In particular.we: wish to encourage the'use of specific plan overlays as proposed for the High School- Hospital and Maino- Madonna areas.- We also believe that the establishment of an urban reserve line as:an outer -boundary-to development should define a hard edge between urban and.rural uses, thus promoting a compact community through infilling, and insuring service availability. However, League has some concerns we hope you will consider as you make your decisions today. 1): We oppose the Planning Commission's recommendation regarding the Yancy's Hill area as inappropriate and unneces- sary at this time. The area is not in proximity to existing 'J: commercial development in the city, and its expansion is contrary to previously expressed goals of infill within . exiting use areas'. Increased development in this area would instead foster urban sprawl and would be against the.dictates • of sound planning. 2). We feel that the Planning Commission support of a cultur- al center in the Maino- Madonna area is premature. Other sites are being considered (notably -the Fremont Theater) and:certain key issues crucial to expansion in that area - (particularly the 'Marsh Street interchange) have not been resolved-. :The.econom- ic 'impact on downtown San Luis Obispo has also been given only scant consideration. City Council Minutes Tuesday, December 7, Page 8 1982 - 7:00 p.m.. 3). We urge.you to set the.urban reserve line with regard to technical standards such as slope, the water service line, and fire response times rather:than in-response to:specific, projects proposed at this time. Any future deviation from the line should then be minimal and only according to criteria--.;, previously established by the Council and after full consider- ation of a specific project. In- .light of the history of contention over these hillside :: areas, we encourage the Council to take this excellent oppor; tunity to take these areas out of the arena of confrontation, so that property owners may have specific guidelines for the. use of their land. We believe this would be of benefit both to the City and its citizens. ". Gini Allen, 191 Luneta Drive,.was concerned.with:the.Planning.Commis- sions recommendations concerning.Yancy's and Madonna properties.. She felt in both instances the:recommendations were premature. She applaud- ed the Hillside Planning process as an: excellent step-in the .right direction. She felt the Cultural Center was inappropriate at.the Maino /Madonna site because it was not the hub of the City. Wendy Mottman, 1865 Wilding Lane, located near the Hospital area, stated she was in support of.the SP overlay as proposed by staff for this area. She would also support Gini Allen's.comments. Bob Vessely, representing the owners of the Royal Oak at 214 Royal Way, also felt the Hillside.Planning Program was a step in the right,direc- tion. The Royal Oak.Inn property owners were, however, objecting•to the recommendations by Planning Commission and staff. He.suggested a modification to the recommendation on page 90-to read "exclude WJUJ a small area at the south.end of the Royal Oak Inn property within the Urban Reserve." The development of this property would create new urban problems but would be primarily a visual concern. The property.location was lower than the pads that The Madonna Inn is already located on. He felt the traffic would be minimal as a.signal was going in at Madonna and Calle Joaquin. The proposal was consistent with all ordinances, i.e. Zoning & Land Use Element, and would "encourage cultural, recreational and entertainment facilities." Richard Hendricks, 1643 Woodland Drive, spoke.in.suppor.t of the SP overlay and would hope it would include the Nelson property as well. The area was prone to.flooding and drainage.problems, and he.would like to see this approach taken in its.entirety rather.than a piecemeal basis. Mrs. Seth Kinney, 2000 Bishop.Street,.spoke in support of hillside development. She felt it was unfair to not allow people to build on the hillside when she knows that it can be done with proper regulations to insure necessary precautions. She-felt anyone should,be able to enjoy the beauty of living on a hillside. She cited such places as Asia, Europe.and Santa Barbara - where.development on hillsides did not destroy their beauty. . .. . - Ken Seger, 3146 Spring Court, applauded The League of Women Voters' comments and asked for clarification of the definition of-Urban Reserve Line.. He commented that even properties earmarked for possible annexa- tion would still require a vote•of the people.to place them-in the City. He asked what kind of cooperation could be expected between the City and the County. Ned Rogoway, resident. in Cambria and representing Alex Madonna, reviewed the zoning history of the property. He felt the property was located in the middle of the City, which would play.a key part in future City growth. He reiterated that the statement prepared by them regarding the development of the property was not a.proposal at.this time but that they would like to be able to work with staff to develop a specific plan. He was concerned with the Planning Commission and staff recom- mendation with regard to the 5 acres. He would encourage the Council to City Council Minutes Tuesday, December 7, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 9 adopt the Planning Commission recommendations on C -T -S zoning. The property was ready for development, and he felt any concerns could be mitigated. He then showed several slides and transparencies reviewing the development location and its visual impact. The base line, not roof line, would be located at the 355 -foot level. The development is contingent upon the construction of the realignment of the Marsh Street Interchange which was crucial to this project. Although it was not a high priority on Cal.Trans list, he felt it would.be in the near future. ' Most of the development would not be on'the hillside portion, but rather in the level areas. He showed some sketches showing the techniques used in alpine villages as a possible design for this area. He said this would be-contingent, of course, upon various city commission approvals. It would not necessarily be.of-Swiss design; but rather a design agreeable to both the developer and the City. Other possibilities.included,4 additional hotels, expanding the present Inn to accomodate - approximately 100 more rooms. It would increase efficiency for shops, meeting rooms and hotel rooms. He stated the hotel is.now booked a year in advance. The shops would not be competitive with the downtown stores but rather would be tourist orientated. The tourist center he felt was an opportunity for the City but could easily be taken out of the plans. Upon completion of the-economic study, the City should recognize the definite need for expansion in this area. 8:45,p.m•. Mayor Billig declared a recess. 9:02 p.m. the City Council reconvened all councilmembers present. Anne Brown, 1885 Alrita Street, whose property was located in the County, stated she was concerned about the Goldtree area..She felt it was.imperative to have cooperation between the County and.the'City if any future development-.would occur.in this area. The.area was subject to slides, earth moving and slippage. She was also concerned the Madonna area be looked at closely. She was very reticent about any development on that hill in view.of.what the developer had already done ' by, constructing a.road, down the mountainside.. Roy Hanff also felt the hillside.planning :process was.a good one;.how- ever, he had concerns on-the following pages: Page 5, paragraph 5 and 6; page 9, Section A and C; page 15, Section C; page 18, 21, 22, 23, 27, -28,:32, and-69.: .His primary concern with pages 18, 28.and 69 were the statment "allowing other information to be obtained as.determined necessary by the Community Development Director. " - He would dike to see the statement added.to include the Planning Commission and Planning Staff approvals. He was also:concerned with the high cost of obtaining materials to review charged by,the City. It was becoming extremely .costly and was discouraging public participation. Vic Montgomery, representing the owners of Yancy's, had two primary concerns: 1) The relationship of the property and its potential use to the City's Growth Management objectives; and, 2) the suitability of the property for the types of uses.allowable in the CT category. It was . their.opinion, that the designation of a portion of the 26 -acre site as CT.was consistent with.the City.'s Growth Management Objectives., The hillside planning program indicated the General Plan "discourages the .expansion of the City's economic base by:expanding commercial areas ". To his knowledge there was no language discouraging expansion of.the City's economic base. All language in the General Plan talked about control and monitoring factors affecting.the.economic base. :Tourism was an important part:of the City and should be encouraged. The.motel ' facilities in the City ran at 82% year -round occupancy'. This would clearly show new tourist.accomodations were warranted.. The addition of -120.moteL rooms to the existing stock of 1100 motel.rooms in the City would provide jobs and revenue with little impact upon the City. The McFadden-property was suitable:for.a motel addition to the existing facilities. It would be a'well designed,;low profile project and faced few building design limitations. :The opportunities for the City which are offered as a part of the limited scale development were numerous and would benefit all City residents. 1) Dedication of slope areas outside development envelopes as permanent open space. Which would be approxi- City Council Minutes Tuesday, December 7, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 10 mately 70% of the total property left as open space; 2) it would eliminate the existing billboards at.the end,of the current -lease period which was in-approximately-2 years; 3) provision of'conference facili- ties needed to support existing levels of tourist trade in.the City; and 4) improved emergency access to existing and.new. facilities, The conceptual drawings show 120 units, single "story, low density;.."cottage inn" designed in clusters of individual buildings. The plan also shows a small conference facility -and additional parking within the existing CT zone. He felt this to be an opportunity for the City with little physical or visual impact with potential benefits being substantial. An integral part of the proposal would also include a shuttle.seirvice from the area to the downtown so it would not impact on the already crowded parking conditions. The.proposal would fit in as a..part- of.the Land Use Element which encourages cultural, recreational and entertainment' facilities. ,r Dr. Ben McAdams, one of the property owners for Yancy's, spoke in support of the City's establishing a stronger tax base for the community which will become considerably more critical in the future. The State is now in a deficit mode. He also'stated there were over-600•rooms being planned in the South County which could heavily impact the City of San Luis Obispo as being the central economic base.of the County. At the present time there is no place in the City that can provide for a conference sit down dinner of 200.people or more... He.felt:the'.traffic generated would not be a problem with the shuttle. The property develop- ment would be located at the 175 =foot level and only visual.from':traffic going north. Doug Warshire, 2250 King Street; spoke-in opposition -of the Madonna/ - Maino project: He felt the fundamental question is, do we want the present San Luis Obispo or do we want a Swiss San Luis Obispo.like Solvang. 1 Robert Murisett, one of the property-owners of Yancy's, felt.this.was a very sensitive development and that is why the initial plans were 1 showing cottages, bungalows and amenities that would add to the City of San Luis Obispo. He felt that the project would not only maintain the quality of life in San Luis Obispo, but would improve it. Dan Lloyd, with MDW and representing the Fillilipino.and Twisselman property spoke in support of the Goldtree Tract and would urge'the Council to support the Planning Commission's recommendation. They were in disagreement with staff's recommendation that the urban reserve line be in the staff preferred location. Two primary points were: 1) The dedication of the commonly held land outside of the urban reserve.line; and 2) location of the urban reserve..line. He took exception especially to page 44 of the initial Hillside Planning document Section G -4 -D with reference to open space easements. He felt the City was requiring too much dedication of the property when there was no need as there was no threat to the City's urban line. He would request that all references presently made to "commonly held land and land beyond the urban line" be changed to " Goldtree Lots. ". He spoke to-the advantages of.having this property annexed. He felt there would be better fire flow to the Alrita area, a landscaped firebreak and would provide an additional. 100. =acres for open space. He does feel-that-it needs to be a balanced an equitable solution. Vic Montgomery, had personal comments concerning the Madonna area, and stated he had worked with Alex Madonna since 1978.. He.felt the Planning Commission had recognized leaving the property outside the.urban reserve line was a mistake then and it is-now. He would hope that the.Council would concur as well. He did not feel the City should leave tlie'deci- sion up to the County for future development. In the next 20 years the Madonna properties would be a key to the'downtown. If you look At the way the development is spreading from The Creamery to the Marsh Street Interchange,'it is easily evident that this is the case and will be a key. . L I 1 City Council Minutes Tuesday, December 7, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 11 Mrs. Seth Kenny again spoke to the Goldtree Area and urged the Council to allow development on the hillside so that other people could appreci- ate'the beauty of the hills. Mayor Billig declared the public hearing closed. Upon general concensus Council agreed that no additional public testimo- ny would be taken concerning the Hillside.Planning process, to continue the.-hearing for Council deliberation on each.of these parcels at its meeting of January 11, 1983. 10:10 p.m. Mayor Billig adjourned the'meeting to closed session to discuss litigation matters. 10:30 p.m. City Council reconvened in open session, all Councilmembers present. -:There being no further business to come before the City,Council, Mayor ....Billig.adjourned the meeting at 10:30 to Tuesday, December 14.At 5:15 p.m. in the Council Hearing Room..
