<br />AND BETWEEN YORK AND BEARD AVES. Parks Director French recommended the trimming

<br />UNDER-SIZED LOTS IN BROOKVIEW HEIGHTS ADDITIONS DECLARED "LEGAL LOTS".
<br />Peterson, owner of a lot in Brookview Heights, explained that he cannot give clear
<br />title to his lot because of a provision in the zoning ordinance which requires that
<br />no lot be of less than 75-foot frontage.
<br />preliminary plat for the over-all Brookview Heights development had been presented
<br />before the lot requirements had been changed by Ordinance; that plats had subse-
<br />quently been approved by Council because they agreed with approved preliminary;
<br />that there are now some 60-F lots in the development which contain less than the
<br />75-foot frontage requirement of .the present ordinance. He recommended that the
<br />Council adopt a blanket resolution declaring these lots "legal tracts", and Beim
<br />offered the following Resolution and moved its adoption:
<br />RESOLUTION DECLARING CERTAIN LOTS IN
<br />BROOKVIEW HEIGHTS FIRST AND SECOND
