There is one existing <br /> parking lot for 30 cars which should be adequate, as the elderly normally do not own <br /> as many cars. <br /> Conflict of interests - none by the Council. <br /> Public hearing was opened. <br /> Les Erb, 610 39th E. said that the people of his neighborhood presented the petition <br /> on July 3 , 1974, for the purpose of setting over the hearing to a later date. The <br /> Council had set. the hearing date for JUJy 22 and he stated not receiving a letter <br /> changing the date to the 15th until Friday, July 12. He demanded postponing the <br /> hearing to give the proponents ample time to prepare their case. <br /> Marshall Webster, 3850 Ferry, stated the proposed buildings are not well integrated <br /> with the surrounding residential area and there is inadequate parking both at the <br /> church and the dwelling sites. The density factor was of the most concern to him. <br /> If his understanding was correct, the proposed 14.55. dwelling units peT' acre would <br />. exceed the 1-10 dwelling units per acre allowed under the 1990 Plan. He did not feel <br /> that the Church and Mr. Tomlinson should be allowed to join in partnership to overcome <br /> the density rule of dwelling units allowed per acre. The church cannot guarantee <br /> either financially or physically at this time the demands they may have to meet <br /> immediately. <br /> Lois Jackson, 3855 Ferry, stated that at the time of the preliminary hearing most <br /> residents of the area were not aware of the PUD. Only prior to the June 8 hearing were <br /> they made aware of it. She felt it unfortunate and suggested a need for a change <br /> ,S~ 7/15/74 - 1 <br />
