• Residents Protest Zone Change at Council Meeting


    by Winston Chua

    San Marino residents Wednesday night at city hall continued to express their opposition to any potential zone changes in the city that might make it more convenient or even possible for a future developer to erect condominiums or multi-use facilities in the future.

    Even though a recent developer has already withdrawn his application for development at 415 Huntington Drive, residents do not want the council or the planning commission to face the possibility of being duped by future developers.

    More than 100 letters have been sent to the planning commission regarding the discussion of a zone change and 334 people have signed a petition to say they are opposed to a zone change that might allow a developer to build more condos in a given space.

    San Marino Senior Planner Aldo Cervantes is studying how the city’s current General Plan was created in 2003. There is currently a zoning inconsistency that the city is working to fix either by amending the General Plan or by ultimately changing the zone.

    San Marino resident Jeff Groseth said that there would be a danger to residents if a zoning change from residential to commercial goes through because there would be a “tremendous loss of privacy” as families might be able to stare straight down to other people’s bedrooms.”

    Clearing up zoning inconsistencies would not affect just 415 Huntington Drive but also 375 Huntington and 475 Huntington. Also speaking out against the zoning change were Michelle Lumley, Bill Payne and Steve Talt.
