The action was taken to allow the Developer Tony Bruno agent for Salem Landing it the opponents of the proposed development and the City solicitor a Chance to work out a mutually acceptable plan for the land. It also will allow the committee time to review proposed changes for the Spud ordinance. Under committee consideration is a proposed single family planned unit development Spud for 79 acres of land on Wayside ave.

At the committees request Morton Rabkin assistant City solicitor made recommendations for changes which would Grant the planning commission and Council More effective controls Over approval disapproval approval with conditions of specific development plans submitted under the Spud ordinance. In a memo Rabkin states that a the present ordinance does give the planning commission specific authority to review Spud development plans and require the plans to show conformity to those matters. However situations can and do develop which require specific guidelines conditions of limitations applicable to any specific Spud District created under the terms of the ordinance. Rabkin recommended that the ordinance be amended a so As to authorize Council to set Forth in any ordinance creating a specific Spud District special conditions applicable to such also the ordinance could also authorize the planning commission a to a nose such other reasonable conditions As it May determine for the a orderly and proper development of the property within a Spud District. A Public hearing in front of City Council on the proposed Spud ordinance changes has been set for june 11. In the meantime because these changes would not be retroactive the Developer is trying to work out a Contra solution with the solicitor that would allow him to proceed with plans for the1 Wayside property without waiting for the formal process of a approving the amendments. Attorney Thomas Luken. Representing the opponents argued that a private covenant Between the Developer and City had been tried before and did no to work. A you have to do the legislation a he said. A you have to take the time. I think you re going to have to do it Luken also made it Clear that while the changes in the Spud ordinance would Rake the whole thing a More palatable a there is still the problem of density. He said that �?o170 or less units would be a minimum. Actually we re talking less than Bruno explained to the committee that Salem Landing Ltd. Had agreed to do a certain number of things with the site conditions set up by the planning commission and that a reduction by 50 units a can make the difference Between a buy Able project a his attorney Vincent Beckman pointed out that the planning commission had already. Reduced the number of units from 275 to 225. In an Effort to control the number of units to be built on the site the residents of the area headed by Preston Simpson recently petitioned for a zone change from r-1 10,000 Square feet per lotto re a 20,000 Square feet per lot. De Mangold of the planning commission explained that Tjie request was made to make the zoning conform More to the property in the area. The entire process planning staff review to Council hearing and final vote could take until september. However he noted the planning commission has already determined the re Spud zoning to be proper zoning for the Groll property.

Rabkin said the planning commission can omit the Groll property from the re zoned tract pointing out it would seem inconsistent with their Spud recommendation to turn around and recommend re a for the Groll property. The opponents tactic appears to defeat the Spud zone in Council and get a two thirds until vote to override the plan thing commissions expected deletion of the Groll property in their re zoning request.
