<br />CONTINUATION OF NOVWBER 12TH PUBLIC HEARING ON PETITION FOR PERMIT TO CONSTRUCT
<br />COUBLE DYELLING ON LOT 3, BLOCK 5, VESTCHE'STER KNOLLS (5208 !'lindsor Avenue).
<br />Pursuant to November 12th instructions of the Council, office presented report
<br />showing that 32 onners have signed in favor of this project, 14 being South of
<br />the railroad tracks; that 14, all South of the tracks have signed against it;
<br />said expressions of opinion all from owners within 500 feet of the affected lot.
<br />An Abstract of Title was presented, showing plat restrictions for iiestchester
<br />Knolls Addition prohibiting any but single-family dwellings. ?kk. Orazem's
<br />attorney told the Council that other plat restrictions have been violated.
<br />Discussion was had, objector Broughton pointing out that owners of properties
<br />immediately North of the tracks are not neighbors, €or the reason "tat they
<br />must travel miles by automobile to get into Westchester Knolls. Objectors
<br />stated once again that they do not object to the architectural plan for the
<br />double dwelling; that they simply do not want any more double dwellings in
<br />their area. k. Orazem's representative pointed out that his proposed double
<br />bungalow would cost about $30,000; that it would be possible to build an $11,000
<br />single dwelling on this lot; but objectors stated they prefer the less e;rpensive
<br />single dwelling. Tupa moved that, inasmuch as the property owners North of the
<br />tracks have no particular personal interest in this matter and the majority of
<br />the property owners in the immediate neighborhood have purchased their homes with
<br />the understanding that the area is restricted to one famil~;dwellings, the
<br />petition for double bungalow be denied.
<br />Objectors asked if there is anything they can do, now, to prohibit future con-
<br />struction of double bungalow on this lot, They were answered in the negative,
<br />the reason that the personnel, and consequently the thinking, of the Council
<br />changes from year to year.
<br />Motion seconded by Bank and carried.
