The reason for the <br /> denial of the license was that Mr. Stathakis has failed to comply with, the City's <br /> sign code in that he had failed to make the necessary application for permits for <br /> sign installation. He had previously received verbal permission over the phone for <br /> the size of the sign and thought that, was all that was required. <br /> Mrs. Campbell moved seconded by Mrs. Beal to postpone the decision on the <br /> appeal 'until January 27.

Rezoning to RP-SR property at northeast corner 40th and Donald (Sletten) <br /> This matter was brought back for action/only, with no public hearing to be held. <br /> The rezoning was recommended by the Planning Commission and came to the Council on <br /> November 12. The Council failed to adopt and the matter was referred to a joint <br /> meeting on Decemper 11 at which time the Planning Commission failed to affirm its <br /> recommendation, by a 3 to 3 vote. A request has been received from Mr. Sletten to <br /> reopen the matter to the extent of - -showing some slides. The slides had not previously <br /> been shown at a Council meeting. The ,City Attorney felt that as part of the rebuttal <br /> it would be a~propriate to have the slides shown because the record shows that all <br /> material was transmitted to the' council and the slides were part of that record. <br /> This would indicate, then, that the November 12 testimony was not complete. The <br /> showing "of slides would simply complete the record and a full~scale hearing would not <br /> be necessary. <br /> Mr. Saul of the Planning Department showed various slides of the area in qhestion. <br />'. Donald B. Driscoll showed slides on behalf of the applicant. The record should show <br /> now.that the Council has received all written notices, minutes of Planning Commission <br /> meetings with the exception of the minutes of the last joint meeting, maps, staff notes <br /> and slides. All are part of the record of the Council. <br /> Mayor Anderson indicated that only those council nlembers could vote who attended the <br /> November 12 meeting and the December 11 joint meeting. Those not having attended would <br /> have had to listen to tapes of the proceedings. Mrs. Beal stated that, although she <br /> 12/23/74 - 1 <br /> 4-20 <br />
