PUBLIC HEARING:

Code Amendment No. 45 and Environmental Assessment No. 714 - a proposal for miscellaneous amendments to Chapter 15.20 (Moratorium on Land Use Permits) of the Municipal Code (1203 x 1801 x 1900)

Senior Planner Fox presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to conduct a public hearing to (1) accept public comments on the draft Negative Declaration prepared pursuant to Environmental Assessment No. 714; and (2) introduce the proposed ordinance to enact Code Amendment No. 45 for miscellaneous amendments to Chapter 15.20 (moratorium on land use permits) of Title 15 of the Municipal Code.

Mayor Byrd opened the public hearing on this request to Code Amendment No. 45 and Environmental Assessment No. 714 - a proposal to consider miscellaneous amendments to Chapter 15.20 (Moratorium on Land Use Permits) of the Municipal Code and to introduce a proposed ordinance. City Clerk Purcell announced that notice had been duly published and that all protest letters were included in the agenda packet.

Council discussion centered on the requirement for homes to be connected to the sewers; suggested changes to clarify the intent of the language; the condition of approval of immediate connection to the sewer required for new construction; the waiving of a holding tank in anticipation of sewer connection; the permitting of new construction but no plumbing hookups until the sewers are installed.

Daphne Clarke, 10 Peppertree Drive, representing the Portuguese Bend Community Association, stated that the Association did not receive notification of this item and asked about street improvements to address public safety that were mentioned in the staff report, speculating that this referred to Palos Verdes Drive South and not the private streets in Portuguese Bend.

Council replied that private streets usually were not within the jurisdiction of the City unless there was a public safety issue.

Staff clarified that this was merely an example of the types of activities the ordinance would cover and that this was not necessarily going to occur.

Sharon Nolan, 6 Clovetree Place, was appreciative of the modernization that sewer installation would bring to the Portuguese Bend community.

Claudia Gutierrez, 3 Clovetree Place, asked for clarification of residential and non-residential uses. She expressed concern about enforcement regarding structures on non-developed lots.

Staff clarified that non-residential use indicates that people may be in the structures but not living in them, such as an office or church. It was explained that the current moratorium restrictions would still apply to non-developed lots.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, said that she had submitted a substantive comment regarding the Mitigated Negative Declaration, contrary to what the staff report said, and that she believed an Environmental Impact Report was required instead of a Mitigated Negative Declaration.

There being no further public testimony, Mayor Byrd closed the public hearing.

There was further Council discussion regarding suggested changes to the ordinance to clarify the restrictions regarding permanent detached accessory structures, and the waiving of the holding tank requirement.

Councilwoman Ferraro moved, seconded by Councilman McTaggart, to introduce Ordinance 357, as amended, to enact Code Amendment No. 45 for miscellaneous amendments to Chapter 15.20 (Moratorium on Land Use Permits) of Title 15 of the Municipal Code.

The motion carried on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Ferraro, McTaggart, Stern, and Mayor Byrd

NOES: None

ABSENT: Lyon

Revision K to the Ocean Trails Project for an Amendment to the Public Amenities Plan (1411 x 1203)

Mayor Byrd opened the public hearing on this request for consideration of Revision K to the Ocean Trails Project for an Amendment to the Public Amenities Plan. City Clerk Purcell announced that notice had been duly published and that that all protest letters had been included in the agenda packet and additional letters provided prior to the meeting as well as a colored map.

Senior Planner Pfost presented the staff report of May 16, 2000, and the recommendation to adopt the proposed resolutions approving Revision K to the Ocean Trails project for an amendment to the Ocean Trails public amenities plan.

Council discussion centered on geological review of the 10th hole; the location of the sewer pipe in relationship to the 10th hole; relocation of the maintenance yard. Councilman Stern raised the matter of accessibility and safety of the public trails.

Herbert Hyatt, 32424 Aqua Vista Drive, discussed the eyesore of the maintenance area and distributed photographs to illustrate his point.

Ali Derek, 32430 Nautilus Drive, was concerned about public safety for bicycle riders, pedestrians, and cars and about increased traffic when the golf course opened. He felt that only the developer and golfers would benefit from what he considered a premature opening of the golf course and said that the City would be liable if there were public safety problems.

Preston Dent, 32551 Seacliff Drive, President of Seacliff Hills Homeowners Association, was concerned about re-alignment of Palos Verdes Drive South which he felt should be completed before the opening of the golf course and he asked the Council to consider a right turn at Seacliff Drive.

Mike Sribney, 32415 Nautilus Drive, expressed concern about increased traffic and public safety and thought that a traffic light was needed at the entrance to the golf course.

Ken Zuckerman, One Ocean Trails, said that his motivation for wanting to open the golf course as soon as possible was to accommodate the many members of the community who wanted to play golf at Ocean Trails and to generate revenue since he was operating on business interruption insurance for a 12-month period only. He said that there were no plans to modify the trails if the golf course opens and that he had a person present who would address traffic issues.

Mr. Zuckerman said that the re-alignment of Palos Verdes South had not been started because the City’s Public Works Director wanted to wait until after winter and said that plans were nearly complete and that he expected construction to begin in July. He stated that there had been ongoing discussions with the Los Angeles County Sanitation District and a request for their sewer pipe to be relocated away from the 10th hole.

Mark Schluter from Converse Consultants described efforts to ensure safety on the site and said that he did not believed that the 10th hole was threatened by Landslide "A". He said there had been no movement since last year’s slide and that there were periodic inspections almost monthly and videotaping of the sewer line at six-month intervals but that this could be increased. He said that there should not be a problem with ponding of surface water because of the drains installed.

Ken Zuckerman returned to the podium at Council’s request and stated that the habitat is not being irrigated and that the clay cap is performing as intended and has shown low permeability in tests performed.

Bobby Heath, One Ocean Trails, expected that there would be 24 cars per hour assuming 100% occupancy with a foursome of golf every 10 minutes. He said that he expected the construction on Palos Verdes Drive South to take about three months beginning in July if all goes as planned and expected that there would be one-way traffic during the day and that the construction impact would be the same whether or not the golf course was open.

Ken McNeil, 32735 Seagate Drive, spoke in favor of opening the golf course because he was looking forward to having an accessible course close to his home and he urged the Council to consider the recreation value and the portion of the green fees which would come to the City.

Council discussion focused on the proposed right turn lane at Seacliff and its relationship to the bike lane.

Staff stated that the project was not conditioned for this.

Ken Zuckerman said that the Public Works Department had indicated that the bike lane was sufficient for right turns.

Further Council discussion included bike safety, and the need to relocate storm drains if the road was widened to accommodate a right turn lane.

Staff explained that there was no proposed right turn lane at Seacliff; that there was room for cars to turn around at the entrance and room for three cars to lineup; and, that it was expected that a detailed plan would be submitted by Ocean Trails within three weeks.

Mayor Byrd closed the public hearing.

Council discussion centered on the apparent resolution of the maintenance yard relocation; the requirement that trails remain open; the relatively low impact of increased traffic if the golf course were open; concern about safety at the 10th hole; and, the need to take quick action to re-align Palos Verdes Drive South.

Councilwoman Ferraro moved to allow the opening of the golf course except for holes 10 and 12. Councilman Stern seconded the motion with the addition of relocating the maintenance yard.

Councilwoman Ferraro, as maker of the motion, agreed to this addition and also added to her motion the requirement that the trails must remain open.

Councilman Stern, as the seconder of the motion, agreed to this addition.

The Council then discussed the possible requirement that the plan for re-alignment of Palos Verdes Drive South be approved before the golf course opening.

Mayor Byrd re-opened the public hearing.

Ken Zuckerman said that there should be no problem completing the plan for the re-alignment of Palos Verdes Drive South if there was no requirement for a right turn lane at Seacliff. He added that the 10th hole was the most popular and he urged the Council to consider allowing play at that hole.

Mr. Zuckerman agreed to video tape the sewer pipe as often as the Council required.

Council requirements for approval included close monitoring of the site, including monthly video taping of the sewer; no watering of the habitat; and, input from the City geologist, particularly with reference to the 10th hole.

(Councilmember Lyon arrived at 8:35 P.M. and was present for the remainder of the meeting.)

Councilwoman Ferraro noted that her motion did not include a requirement for approving a plan for re-alignment of Palos Verdes Drive South.

Mayor Byrd closed the public hearing.

The motion was reiterated as follows: (1) ADOPTED RESOLUTION NO. 2000-27, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES, APPROVING ADDENDUM NO. 10 TO ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT NO. 36 IN CONNECTION WITH REVISION "K" TO THE OCEAN TRAILS PROJECT FOR A 75-LOT RESIDENTIAL PLANNED DEVELOPMENT, PUBLIC OPEN SPACE, AND 18-HOLE PUBLIC GOLF COURSE WITH RELATED FACILITIES LOCATED IN COASTAL SUBREGIONS 7 AND 8. (2) ADOPTED RESOLUTION NO. 2000-28, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES, APPROVING A REVISION TO THE FINAL PUBLIC AMENITIES PLAN IN CONNECTION WITH REVISION "K" TO THE OCEAN TRAILS PROJECT, A 75-LOT RESIDENTIAL PLANNED DEVELOPMENT, 18-HOLE GOLF COURSE WITH RELATED FACILITIES AND PUBLIC OPEN SPACE PROJECT LOCATED IN COASTAL SUBREGIONS 7 AND 8. (3) Approved opening the golf course; approved staff recommendation with exception of Hole Nos. 9, 12, and 18; approved moving the maintenance building; that the public trails remain unchanged; that the road design be approved and that there not be a substantial redesign of the road; that the sewer monitoring at Landslide "A" be done at least once every 30 days; that the City geologist approve a monitoring program with respect to Landslide "A".

The maker and seconder of the motion accepted these additions.

The motion carried on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Ferraro, McTaggart, Stern, and Mayor Byrd

NOES: None

ABSTAIN: Lyon (because of late arrival)

PUBLIC COMMENTS:

Teng Li-Ann Lee, 55 Oceanaire Drive, said that she had requested a public hearing regarding a Height Variance and said that she had spoken to the City Manager and the Director of Planning, Building, and Code Enforcement about the matter. She felt that the permit had been issued erroneously and she felt the action was contrary to the Municipal Code. She asked that work be stopped at 59 Oceanaire.

City Attorney Lynch stated that Mrs. Lee has filed a claim against the City and that the Director of Planning, Building, and Code Enforcement had requested a survey to confirm whether the structure in question was being built according to approved plans and was awaiting the results of this survey.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, spoke about a fence that she believes was built on her property by Jim York, the alleged owner of the property adjacent to hers, and a bathroom window which she thought was broken by workmen hired by Mr. York.

Recess and Reconvene:

At 8:55 P.M., Mayor Byrd declared a recess. The meeting reconvened at 9:10 P.M.

REGULAR BUSINESS:

Mayor Pro Tem Lyon moved, seconded by Councilwoman Ferraro, to appoint Gil Alberio as Chair of the View Restoration Commission. Motion carried.

All terms of office are until April 2002, and the term of the chair is until April 2001.

Ocean Trails–Geologic Presentation of Landslide C Repair Plan (1411 x 1203)

Senior Planner Pfost presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to receive a presentation from Ocean Trails that focuses upon the geology of the proposed Landslide C Repair Plan, and ask questions and/or provide comments to Ocean Trails Staff and/or City Staff regarding the presentation.

Bill Cotton, engineering geologist, talked about the review process and said that members of his firm had functioned as City staff members, making sure that consultants operated within the standards of engineering and geology and had also worked with peer panel members. He said that land use, public safety, and public access were important factors and care was taken to use correct techniques to investigate, map, drill, sample and test to determine land stability.

A representative of Converse Consultants, Mark Schluter provided details of the repair plan with a PowerPoint presentation. The points covered were the location of the slide, an illustration of a cross section, the work which has been done to date, investigation details, selection of the best repair design, emergency winterization, detailed design of the final repair and technical review of the plan by experts.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, said that the Coastal Commission had opposed the use of shear pins as proposed for these repairs.

Council clarified that the Coastal Commission objected to the use of shear pins only and wanted a complete plan which could include shear pins. It was emphasized that the Public could provide comments to staff through June 5 to be analyzed in the final report.

Ocean Trails–Extension of Vesting Tentative Tract Map No. 50666 (1411 x 1203)

Senior Planner Pfost presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to extend the approval for Vesting Tentative Tract Map No. 50666 for the Ocean Trails project for one (1) year until April 15, 2001.

Chip Zelt, 4100 Sea Horse Lane, urged the Council to take steps to alleviate the impact to nearby residents and invited the Council to visit his neighborhood to see this impact.

Councilman Stern moved, seconded by Councilman McTaggart, to adopt the staff recommendation. Motion carried.

Professional Services Agreement for Financial Analysis of the Long Point Golf Course Proposal (1101 x 1804)

City Manager Evans presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to (1) Approve an Agreement with Keyser Marston Associates, Inc. for financial analysis and negotiation assistance related to the Long Point Associates proposal to build a golf course on lands owned by the City, and (2) Authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the agreement. He noted some proposed changes which appeared in a revised agreement submitted to the Council prior to the meeting.

Jim Knight, 5 Cinnamon Lane, was opposed to the City even considering the use of City land for golf and believed a financial analysis was a waste of money. He said that the General Plan required passive use of the land and golf is not passive. He also said that the NCCP included the land around City Hall and the NCCP map has not been approved yet. He closed by stressing the importance of natural sites for rejuvenation.

Barbara Gleghorn, 28850 Crestridge Road, said that she wrote a letter to the City before the changes were made and she felt the changes improved the situation because the original scope of services concerned a concession agreement which would imply that a decision had been made regarding the use of City land. She agreed with the previous speaker’s comments.

Holly Cain, 52 Avenida Corona, said that she preferred that the land being considered for golf be referred to as public land rather than City-owned land. She referred to the deed of the land from the Federal government which restricted the land to general public use.

Marianne Hunter, 31 Narcissa Drive, felt that the Council is the trustee for public land, and the benefits of unstructured space, especially for children growing up in an urban area, were more important than the potential tax benefits.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, spoke in opposition to golf courses in the area because of the toxicity of maintaining them and said that Jim York had said the golf course was not viable unless it was 18 holes and now the proposal specified 9 holes.

Council discussion centered on Mrs. Gleghorn’s concerns which were alleviated by changes made in the agreement; the need for analysis to make an intelligent decision; the protection of public land; and, the viability of the project with the reduction from 18 holes to 9.

Councilwoman Ferraro moved, seconded by Councilmember Lyon, to (1) Approve an Agreement, as amended, with Keyser Marston Associates, Inc. for financial analysis and negotiation assistance related to the Long Point Associates proposal to build a golf course on lands owned by the City, and (2) Authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the agreement.

The motion carried on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Ferraro, Lyon, McTaggart, Stern, and Mayor Byrd

NOES: None

Recess and Reconvene:

At 10:30 P.M., Mayor Byrd declared a recess. The meeting reconvened at 10:35 P.M.

Award of Contact for Building and Safety Services (1101 x 1201)

Assistant City Manager Petru presented the staff report and the recommendation to award the contract for Building and Safety Services to Charles Abbott Associates for the expanded level of service and authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the three-year (changed to five-year) contract beginning with Fiscal Year 2000-2001.

Ms. Petru added that a supplement staff report had been provided to the Council since the agenda packet was prepared and one of the major revisions was a five-year contract, rather than the three-year contract originally considered.

Teng Li-Ann Lee, 55 Oceanaire Drive, stated that other businesses should have an opportunity to provide these services for the City and that she had not had a positive experience dealing with Charles Abbott Associates and the City’s Building Department.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, described negative experiences she had had with Charles Abbott Associates.

Council discussion focused on the expanded services and the benefits of requesting bids from other contractors and the general feeling that a change was unnecessary.

Staff said that there had been no substantial problems with the performance of Charles Abbott Associates.

Councilman Stern moved, seconded by Councilmember Lyon, to award the contract for Building and Safety Services to Charles Abbott Associates for the expanded level of service and authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute a contract beginning with Fiscal Year 2000-2001 and to incorporate the change to a five-year contract and other changes listed in the supplemental staff report.

The motion carried on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Ferraro, Lyon, McTaggart, Stern, and Mayor Byrd

NOES: None

Community Leaders’ Breakfast – Fall Meeting (301 x 307)

City Clerk Purcell presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to select a new date for the fall Community Leaders’ Breakfast and added that since the staff report was prepared, Hesse Park had become available on October 7.

Council consensus was to maintain the date of October 7 and change the location to Hesse Park.

Rescheduling of the June 20, 2000 City Council Meeting (301 x 307)

City Manager Evans presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to consider rescheduling the June 20, 2000 City Council meeting to another date.

After Council discussion, the consensus was to schedule the meeting on June 21 at 6:00 P.M.

Oral report from Councilman McTaggart regarding Installation of Storm Drain on Western Avenue (310)

Councilman McTaggart described the installation which would require one-way traffic and he suggested that affected residents be made aware of this extended construction project.

Council consensus was to place a notice on the reader board and on the City’s web site.

Councilman Stern stated that he had attended the dedication of the White Point Nature preserve on Saturday, May 6, the recent appreciation luncheon for Sheriff’s Department volunteers along with Mayor Byrd and Mayor Pro Tem Lyon, and the last Peninsula Law Enforcement meeting along with Mayor Pro Tem Lyon.

PUBLIC HEARING:

Code Amendment No. 45 and Environmental Assessment No. 714 - a proposal for miscellaneous amendments to Chapter 15.20 (Moratorium on Land Use Permits) of the Municipal Code (1203 x 1801 x 1900)

Senior Planner Fox presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to conduct a public hearing to (1) accept public comments on the draft Negative Declaration prepared pursuant to Environmental Assessment No. 714; and (2) introduce the proposed ordinance to enact Code Amendment No. 45 for miscellaneous amendments to Chapter 15.20 (moratorium on land use permits) of Title 15 of the Municipal Code.

Mayor Byrd opened the public hearing on this request to Code Amendment No. 45 and Environmental Assessment No. 714 - a proposal to consider miscellaneous amendments to Chapter 15.20 (Moratorium on Land Use Permits) of the Municipal Code and to introduce a proposed ordinance. City Clerk Purcell announced that notice had been duly published and that all protest letters were included in the agenda packet.

Council discussion centered on the requirement for homes to be connected to the sewers; suggested changes to clarify the intent of the language; the condition of approval of immediate connection to the sewer required for new construction; the waiving of a holding tank in anticipation of sewer connection; the permitting of new construction but no plumbing hookups until the sewers are installed.

Daphne Clarke, 10 Peppertree Drive, representing the Portuguese Bend Community Association, stated that the Association did not receive notification of this item and asked about street improvements to address public safety that were mentioned in the staff report, speculating that this referred to Palos Verdes Drive South and not the private streets in Portuguese Bend.

Council replied that private streets usually were not within the jurisdiction of the City unless there was a public safety issue.

Staff clarified that this was merely an example of the types of activities the ordinance would cover and that this was not necessarily going to occur.

Sharon Nolan, 6 Clovetree Place, was appreciative of the modernization that sewer installation would bring to the Portuguese Bend community.

Claudia Gutierrez, 3 Clovetree Place, asked for clarification of residential and non-residential uses. She expressed concern about enforcement regarding structures on non-developed lots.

Staff clarified that non-residential use indicates that people may be in the structures but not living in them, such as an office or church. It was explained that the current moratorium restrictions would still apply to non-developed lots.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, said that she had submitted a substantive comment regarding the Mitigated Negative Declaration, contrary to what the staff report said, and that she believed an Environmental Impact Report was required instead of a Mitigated Negative Declaration.

There being no further public testimony, Mayor Byrd closed the public hearing.

There was further Council discussion regarding suggested changes to the ordinance to clarify the restrictions regarding permanent detached accessory structures, and the waiving of the holding tank requirement.

Councilwoman Ferraro moved, seconded by Councilman McTaggart, to introduce Ordinance 357, as amended, to enact Code Amendment No. 45 for miscellaneous amendments to Chapter 15.20 (Moratorium on Land Use Permits) of Title 15 of the Municipal Code.

The motion carried on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Ferraro, McTaggart, Stern, and Mayor Byrd

NOES: None

ABSENT: Lyon

Revision K to the Ocean Trails Project for an Amendment to the Public Amenities Plan (1411 x 1203)

Mayor Byrd opened the public hearing on this request for consideration of Revision K to the Ocean Trails Project for an Amendment to the Public Amenities Plan. City Clerk Purcell announced that notice had been duly published and that that all protest letters had been included in the agenda packet and additional letters provided prior to the meeting as well as a colored map.

Senior Planner Pfost presented the staff report of May 16, 2000, and the recommendation to adopt the proposed resolutions approving Revision K to the Ocean Trails project for an amendment to the Ocean Trails public amenities plan.

Council discussion centered on geological review of the 10th hole; the location of the sewer pipe in relationship to the 10th hole; relocation of the maintenance yard. Councilman Stern raised the matter of accessibility and safety of the public trails.

Herbert Hyatt, 32424 Aqua Vista Drive, discussed the eyesore of the maintenance area and distributed photographs to illustrate his point.

Ali Derek, 32430 Nautilus Drive, was concerned about public safety for bicycle riders, pedestrians, and cars and about increased traffic when the golf course opened. He felt that only the developer and golfers would benefit from what he considered a premature opening of the golf course and said that the City would be liable if there were public safety problems.

Preston Dent, 32551 Seacliff Drive, President of Seacliff Hills Homeowners Association, was concerned about re-alignment of Palos Verdes Drive South which he felt should be completed before the opening of the golf course and he asked the Council to consider a right turn at Seacliff Drive.

Mike Sribney, 32415 Nautilus Drive, expressed concern about increased traffic and public safety and thought that a traffic light was needed at the entrance to the golf course.

Ken Zuckerman, One Ocean Trails, said that his motivation for wanting to open the golf course as soon as possible was to accommodate the many members of the community who wanted to play golf at Ocean Trails and to generate revenue since he was operating on business interruption insurance for a 12-month period only. He said that there were no plans to modify the trails if the golf course opens and that he had a person present who would address traffic issues.

Mr. Zuckerman said that the re-alignment of Palos Verdes South had not been started because the City’s Public Works Director wanted to wait until after winter and said that plans were nearly complete and that he expected construction to begin in July. He stated that there had been ongoing discussions with the Los Angeles County Sanitation District and a request for their sewer pipe to be relocated away from the 10th hole.

Mark Schluter from Converse Consultants described efforts to ensure safety on the site and said that he did not believed that the 10th hole was threatened by Landslide "A". He said there had been no movement since last year’s slide and that there were periodic inspections almost monthly and videotaping of the sewer line at six-month intervals but that this could be increased. He said that there should not be a problem with ponding of surface water because of the drains installed.

Ken Zuckerman returned to the podium at Council’s request and stated that the habitat is not being irrigated and that the clay cap is performing as intended and has shown low permeability in tests performed.

Bobby Heath, One Ocean Trails, expected that there would be 24 cars per hour assuming 100% occupancy with a foursome of golf every 10 minutes. He said that he expected the construction on Palos Verdes Drive South to take about three months beginning in July if all goes as planned and expected that there would be one-way traffic during the day and that the construction impact would be the same whether or not the golf course was open.

Ken McNeil, 32735 Seagate Drive, spoke in favor of opening the golf course because he was looking forward to having an accessible course close to his home and he urged the Council to consider the recreation value and the portion of the green fees which would come to the City.

Council discussion focused on the proposed right turn lane at Seacliff and its relationship to the bike lane.

Staff stated that the project was not conditioned for this.

Ken Zuckerman said that the Public Works Department had indicated that the bike lane was sufficient for right turns.

Further Council discussion included bike safety, and the need to relocate storm drains if the road was widened to accommodate a right turn lane.

Staff explained that there was no proposed right turn lane at Seacliff; that there was room for cars to turn around at the entrance and room for three cars to lineup; and, that it was expected that a detailed plan would be submitted by Ocean Trails within three weeks.

Mayor Byrd closed the public hearing.

Council discussion centered on the apparent resolution of the maintenance yard relocation; the requirement that trails remain open; the relatively low impact of increased traffic if the golf course were open; concern about safety at the 10th hole; and, the need to take quick action to re-align Palos Verdes Drive South.

Councilwoman Ferraro moved to allow the opening of the golf course except for holes 10 and 12. Councilman Stern seconded the motion with the addition of relocating the maintenance yard.

Councilwoman Ferraro, as maker of the motion, agreed to this addition and also added to her motion the requirement that the trails must remain open.

Councilman Stern, as the seconder of the motion, agreed to this addition.

The Council then discussed the possible requirement that the plan for re-alignment of Palos Verdes Drive South be approved before the golf course opening.

Mayor Byrd re-opened the public hearing.

Ken Zuckerman said that there should be no problem completing the plan for the re-alignment of Palos Verdes Drive South if there was no requirement for a right turn lane at Seacliff. He added that the 10th hole was the most popular and he urged the Council to consider allowing play at that hole.

Mr. Zuckerman agreed to video tape the sewer pipe as often as the Council required.

Council requirements for approval included close monitoring of the site, including monthly video taping of the sewer; no watering of the habitat; and, input from the City geologist, particularly with reference to the 10th hole.

(Councilmember Lyon arrived at 8:35 P.M. and was present for the remainder of the meeting.)

Councilwoman Ferraro noted that her motion did not include a requirement for approving a plan for re-alignment of Palos Verdes Drive South.

Mayor Byrd closed the public hearing.

The motion was reiterated as follows: (1) ADOPTED RESOLUTION NO. 2000-27, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES, APPROVING ADDENDUM NO. 10 TO ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT NO. 36 IN CONNECTION WITH REVISION "K" TO THE OCEAN TRAILS PROJECT FOR A 75-LOT RESIDENTIAL PLANNED DEVELOPMENT, PUBLIC OPEN SPACE, AND 18-HOLE PUBLIC GOLF COURSE WITH RELATED FACILITIES LOCATED IN COASTAL SUBREGIONS 7 AND 8. (2) ADOPTED RESOLUTION NO. 2000-28, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES, APPROVING A REVISION TO THE FINAL PUBLIC AMENITIES PLAN IN CONNECTION WITH REVISION "K" TO THE OCEAN TRAILS PROJECT, A 75-LOT RESIDENTIAL PLANNED DEVELOPMENT, 18-HOLE GOLF COURSE WITH RELATED FACILITIES AND PUBLIC OPEN SPACE PROJECT LOCATED IN COASTAL SUBREGIONS 7 AND 8. (3) Approved opening the golf course; approved staff recommendation with exception of Hole Nos. 9, 12, and 18; approved moving the maintenance building; that the public trails remain unchanged; that the road design be approved and that there not be a substantial redesign of the road; that the sewer monitoring at Landslide "A" be done at least once every 30 days; that the City geologist approve a monitoring program with respect to Landslide "A".

The maker and seconder of the motion accepted these additions.

The motion carried on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Ferraro, McTaggart, Stern, and Mayor Byrd

NOES: None

ABSTAIN: Lyon (because of late arrival)

PUBLIC COMMENTS:

Teng Li-Ann Lee, 55 Oceanaire Drive, said that she had requested a public hearing regarding a Height Variance and said that she had spoken to the City Manager and the Director of Planning, Building, and Code Enforcement about the matter. She felt that the permit had been issued erroneously and she felt the action was contrary to the Municipal Code. She asked that work be stopped at 59 Oceanaire.

City Attorney Lynch stated that Mrs. Lee has filed a claim against the City and that the Director of Planning, Building, and Code Enforcement had requested a survey to confirm whether the structure in question was being built according to approved plans and was awaiting the results of this survey.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, spoke about a fence that she believes was built on her property by Jim York, the alleged owner of the property adjacent to hers, and a bathroom window which she thought was broken by workmen hired by Mr. York.

Recess and Reconvene:

At 8:55 P.M., Mayor Byrd declared a recess. The meeting reconvened at 9:10 P.M.

REGULAR BUSINESS:

Mayor Pro Tem Lyon moved, seconded by Councilwoman Ferraro, to appoint Gil Alberio as Chair of the View Restoration Commission. Motion carried.

All terms of office are until April 2002, and the term of the chair is until April 2001.

Ocean Trails–Geologic Presentation of Landslide C Repair Plan (1411 x 1203)

Senior Planner Pfost presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to receive a presentation from Ocean Trails that focuses upon the geology of the proposed Landslide C Repair Plan, and ask questions and/or provide comments to Ocean Trails Staff and/or City Staff regarding the presentation.

Bill Cotton, engineering geologist, talked about the review process and said that members of his firm had functioned as City staff members, making sure that consultants operated within the standards of engineering and geology and had also worked with peer panel members. He said that land use, public safety, and public access were important factors and care was taken to use correct techniques to investigate, map, drill, sample and test to determine land stability.

A representative of Converse Consultants, Mark Schluter provided details of the repair plan with a PowerPoint presentation. The points covered were the location of the slide, an illustration of a cross section, the work which has been done to date, investigation details, selection of the best repair design, emergency winterization, detailed design of the final repair and technical review of the plan by experts.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, said that the Coastal Commission had opposed the use of shear pins as proposed for these repairs.

Council clarified that the Coastal Commission objected to the use of shear pins only and wanted a complete plan which could include shear pins. It was emphasized that the Public could provide comments to staff through June 5 to be analyzed in the final report.

Ocean Trails–Extension of Vesting Tentative Tract Map No. 50666 (1411 x 1203)

Senior Planner Pfost presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to extend the approval for Vesting Tentative Tract Map No. 50666 for the Ocean Trails project for one (1) year until April 15, 2001.

Chip Zelt, 4100 Sea Horse Lane, urged the Council to take steps to alleviate the impact to nearby residents and invited the Council to visit his neighborhood to see this impact.

Councilman Stern moved, seconded by Councilman McTaggart, to adopt the staff recommendation. Motion carried.

Professional Services Agreement for Financial Analysis of the Long Point Golf Course Proposal (1101 x 1804)

City Manager Evans presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to (1) Approve an Agreement with Keyser Marston Associates, Inc. for financial analysis and negotiation assistance related to the Long Point Associates proposal to build a golf course on lands owned by the City, and (2) Authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the agreement. He noted some proposed changes which appeared in a revised agreement submitted to the Council prior to the meeting.

Jim Knight, 5 Cinnamon Lane, was opposed to the City even considering the use of City land for golf and believed a financial analysis was a waste of money. He said that the General Plan required passive use of the land and golf is not passive. He also said that the NCCP included the land around City Hall and the NCCP map has not been approved yet. He closed by stressing the importance of natural sites for rejuvenation.

Barbara Gleghorn, 28850 Crestridge Road, said that she wrote a letter to the City before the changes were made and she felt the changes improved the situation because the original scope of services concerned a concession agreement which would imply that a decision had been made regarding the use of City land. She agreed with the previous speaker’s comments.

Holly Cain, 52 Avenida Corona, said that she preferred that the land being considered for golf be referred to as public land rather than City-owned land. She referred to the deed of the land from the Federal government which restricted the land to general public use.

Marianne Hunter, 31 Narcissa Drive, felt that the Council is the trustee for public land, and the benefits of unstructured space, especially for children growing up in an urban area, were more important than the potential tax benefits.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, spoke in opposition to golf courses in the area because of the toxicity of maintaining them and said that Jim York had said the golf course was not viable unless it was 18 holes and now the proposal specified 9 holes.

Council discussion centered on Mrs. Gleghorn’s concerns which were alleviated by changes made in the agreement; the need for analysis to make an intelligent decision; the protection of public land; and, the viability of the project with the reduction from 18 holes to 9.

Councilwoman Ferraro moved, seconded by Councilmember Lyon, to (1) Approve an Agreement, as amended, with Keyser Marston Associates, Inc. for financial analysis and negotiation assistance related to the Long Point Associates proposal to build a golf course on lands owned by the City, and (2) Authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the agreement.

The motion carried on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Ferraro, Lyon, McTaggart, Stern, and Mayor Byrd

NOES: None

Recess and Reconvene:

At 10:30 P.M., Mayor Byrd declared a recess. The meeting reconvened at 10:35 P.M.

Award of Contact for Building and Safety Services (1101 x 1201)

Assistant City Manager Petru presented the staff report and the recommendation to award the contract for Building and Safety Services to Charles Abbott Associates for the expanded level of service and authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the three-year (changed to five-year) contract beginning with Fiscal Year 2000-2001.

Ms. Petru added that a supplement staff report had been provided to the Council since the agenda packet was prepared and one of the major revisions was a five-year contract, rather than the three-year contract originally considered.

Teng Li-Ann Lee, 55 Oceanaire Drive, stated that other businesses should have an opportunity to provide these services for the City and that she had not had a positive experience dealing with Charles Abbott Associates and the City’s Building Department.

Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, described negative experiences she had had with Charles Abbott Associates.

Council discussion focused on the expanded services and the benefits of requesting bids from other contractors and the general feeling that a change was unnecessary.

Staff said that there had been no substantial problems with the performance of Charles Abbott Associates.

Councilman Stern moved, seconded by Councilmember Lyon, to award the contract for Building and Safety Services to Charles Abbott Associates for the expanded level of service and authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute a contract beginning with Fiscal Year 2000-2001 and to incorporate the change to a five-year contract and other changes listed in the supplemental staff report.

The motion carried on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Ferraro, Lyon, McTaggart, Stern, and Mayor Byrd

NOES: None

Community Leaders’ Breakfast – Fall Meeting (301 x 307)

City Clerk Purcell presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to select a new date for the fall Community Leaders’ Breakfast and added that since the staff report was prepared, Hesse Park had become available on October 7.

Council consensus was to maintain the date of October 7 and change the location to Hesse Park.

Rescheduling of the June 20, 2000 City Council Meeting (301 x 307)

City Manager Evans presented the staff report of May 16, 2000 and the recommendation to consider rescheduling the June 20, 2000 City Council meeting to another date.

After Council discussion, the consensus was to schedule the meeting on June 21 at 6:00 P.M.

Oral report from Councilman McTaggart regarding Installation of Storm Drain on Western Avenue (310)

Councilman McTaggart described the installation which would require one-way traffic and he suggested that affected residents be made aware of this extended construction project.

Council consensus was to place a notice on the reader board and on the City’s web site.
