Scheduled Items: (Dutra recused)
Approve Planning Commission recommendation to allow General Plan Amendment to change zoning from Low-Density residential to Medium-Density residential for Hackamore Planned District of 37 single family homes at the corner of Fernald Street and Hackamore Lane. Mark Robson presented the planned development of 2-2.5 story homes. Neighbors, while noting that Mr. Robson had a fine reputation within the community, were in opposition, citing change of character to their neighborhood, density of the development, proximity of a school and attendant traffic and lack of open space in the plans although a park is located nearby. A compromise including reduction of homes to 35 and exploration of additional mediation of traffic, park amenities and height limitations was approved. (4-0-1)
