ON THE AGENDA

Here are some of the issues the commission will consider Monday.

DEALING WITH SIGNS

The commission will consider a law that would change the city's

temporary sign regulations to include provisions for city-sponsored

events on public property and banners on public baseball and softball

fields.

This consideration evolved out of residents questioning whether

banners displayed by youth sports groups on fences and backstops on

athletic fields at California Elementary and TeWinkle Middle schools

complied with the city's sign law.

The council directed staff members to research the banner issue

and return with revised language to the city code.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The commission will probably recommend the City Council give a

first reading to the proposed law because it strives to regulate

temporary signs and banners not currently addressed in the city's

code. Standards have been included relating to location, size,

illumination, number, maintenance and length of installation of the

banners.

AUTO SALES PERMIT

The commission will consider whether to modify or revoke a permit

to legalize the expansion of an existing car sales and leasing

business at 1202 Bristol St. onto 1192 Bristol St.

The commission approved the permit, which legalized the storage

and display of the cars in October. The approval was subject to the

installation of landscaping to match the landscape buffer provided

for the adjacent commercial development at 1122 Bristol St. and also

provide a buffer from the adjacent residences.

But the applicant, Larry Pointer/C&D; Properties, which owns the

property and operates the business, has not submitted landscape plans

as required.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Planning staff members recommend revoking the permit because the

property owner has had 10 months to provide landscaping and because

of the owner's lack of cooperation with city staff members.
