Jim Saul, planner, explained that a revised application <br /> was filed by the applicants on which the Planning Commission conducted a public <br /> hearing on September 2, 1975. The request was formally denied at the Commission's <br /> September 22, 1975 meeting and findings adopted supporting that decision. Sub- <br /> sequently, the applicants appealed that decision to the City Council. <br /> No ex parte contacts or other reasons for conflict of interest were declared <br /> by Council members. Planning Commission minutes and staff notes containing <br /> the record of this request were made a part of this record by reference thereto. <br /> Public hearing was opened. <br /> Sylvanus Smith, 2361 Charnel ton Street, also reviewed the history of the request <br /> which originally sought residential and commercial zoning and was subsequently <br />e revised to request only commercial zoning. He said that the area was designated <br /> in the 1990 Plan as an opportunity area suitable for commercial activities. <br /> He said that should residential zoning be requested and the land developed in <br /> that manner, very likely a lawsuit would be filed objecting to that action. <br /> And if a lawsuit was filed, he wondered how much longer the land would be held <br /> "in limbo" until that was settled. He didn't think it was fair to the city or <br /> 5-53 10/27/75 - 1 <br />
