SAN CLEMENTE : Results of Growth Study Will Be Given

Results of a yearlong study on growth management in the city will be presented tonight to the Planning Commission.

A nine-member committee examined areas including open space, schools, sewers, roads, water, libraries, parking, police and a new civic center.

In June, 1988, voters overwhelmingly passed Measure E, a slow-growth initiative. But a Superior Court judge ruled the city measure unconstitutional. That ruling is now being appealed by a citizens' group.

The City Council subsequently appointed a committee to create a legally acceptable growth-management plan.

In 1986, voters passed Measure B, the city's first growth-limiting initiative, which restricted home-building permits to 500 a year.
