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
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
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
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.
