NOTE TO READERS:….the word “HEIGTHS” is how the speaker (CS) referred to the HEIGHTS…it is  a verbatim account….not this writer’s mistake…….(reference to comment below)…

2/10/09…NEW BUSINESS ITEM 16 B…..REFERENDUM ON THE HEIGHT LIMITS…

Discussion and/ or action….was discussed earlier with the VFD Referendum…to be part of the current 3 slated for the 5/13/09 7 pm workshop…

A little discussion though…that included the following … Silverstone words …..about the “Heighths?”…

Comm. Silverstone-” I think what, really talking about here is the building. I think whatever we put forth this referendum’s gotta be set in stone. We gotta be able to say forty four  feet. In Europe there’s a maximum heighth that you cannot build anything above that certain level that’s it. I don’t care if you call it an elevator or a roof or chimney or whatever you want to call it. But there’s gotta, we come during the Commission workshop we’ll come up with the people what the maximum allowable heighth will be period and once that’s done and once that’s set in stone I think you’ll see a large amount of ah, development here from people knowing that instead of sitting on my property for a couple of years because it’s going to change their mind again or something else is gonna happen that won’t be the case. People will know they’ll be certain of a ,of a, of a clear heighth and we will move forward but til that happens a lot of people are waiting in the wings. It’s not good for the town. I was snookered too, by the referendum that was passed last time. I thought it was forty four feet only east of El Mar Drive for people to be allowed to build above the first floor cause it could be habitable space to make it fair, that made sense to me, that’s why I voted for it. Then all of the sudden you get redistrict areas and make it anywhere in town for forty four feet if you want to. That was a disservice to the people. So I’m, I’m very um, strongly um, in favor of getting a referendum that’s clear and decise and that’s it , that’s all I have.”

Comm Clottey  spoke about the removal of the Overlay Districts made for more confusion…and Comm Dodd  spoke about the grade issues…..it will be included for further discussion and wording…on how to put it out yet again…(previously posted over the previous months…with information from one person who crafted the last referendum/ordinances…and muni- codes etc…scoop categories…)
