A a some people might think that because there Are already seme condominiums there it would be All right to build some More a he said. A was far As i m concerned that Sall the More reason not to Teri id More. This is an awful Nice area. With More places like that it would just crowd residents near the 18.73 acre parcel Are also worried about what Montgomery Calls a a Domino affect Quot he said. If another mid to family Complex is built in the area he said pressure put on neighbors. A. A the location puts neighbors a in a bind Quot he said.

Each property owner has his of n reason but i really Haven to found anyone who favors the he said. The plan for the Complex says it will include a swimming Pool clubhouse and Tennis courts. The unite would sell for $60,000 and up. Allows a tenant to pay one fourth of his monthly income toward rent the Federal government would pay the remainder Quot of Hara said the conditions on the approval include a reduction in the number of unite allowed in.

The tinal conditions of the approval said o�?THara., involve moving the location of one building to preserve the Central natural area of the land and erecting temporary fences during Ernst Rution to preserve those areas which will not be built on Koetzle must submit a revised site plan of Hara said due to the extent of the changes. A the report on the decision says that the Developer did not appear to put in much Effort for architectural and natural facets of the project a said of Hara. Of Hara said the decision contained Quot fairly Strong language. A it probably would have been More logical to reject it Quot he said a but this is the first test of the pud ordinance. It was politically More expedient to accept it with the strict conditions a a Winston Folkers the Developer for Koetzle said the company does not agree with the decision and the conditions of the plan. A we can develop the area nicely without All the restrictions a a Folkers said. A a the zoning for the land allows 60 units to be built there. Only giving us 42 is improper use of the zoning Quot Folkers said he had Only recently received a copy of the decision and had not had a Chance to review it completely with other Koetzle staff members. A we done to have any plans concerning it yet since we just got it Quot he said. A we will review it but 1 can t say whether the development will go any a of Hara said he believes that the plan was accepted because a erf pressure on the1 City to construct More subsidized housing. A a in a not really surprised about the Quot decision., Quot he said. A since this is the first tryout of the ordinance they probably thought they should accept it so they done to scare other. Developers although the restrictions were put on the Koetzle plan o Hara said he believes there Are More which should be applied if the plan is considered further. A this decision is Only final if there is no Appeal Quot of Hara said. A we could Appeal to have More restrictions put on the plan and or Folkers could Appeal to have restrictions those appeals would be the City a zoning Board of appeals. If appealed of Hara said the zoning Board of appeals could modify the plan accept it outright or reject it a although the report gives the Ore tical approval Quot of Hara said a i see it As a rejection. In practical terms i think that a what it of Hara said he would not Appeal the decision unless Koetzle tries to go ahead with the development.
