He spoke of <br />his appreciation that Mr. Krahl was willing to delay removal of the tree <br />cover on his property until after this hearing. Councilman Shaw reiterated <br />that he had no preconceived.opinion before this hearing. In response to a <br />question of Mr. C. J. Bodine' 6141 Arctic Way, Mr. Gittleman agreed that fewer <br />housing units would cause less change in the character of the hill, but that <br />economics dictated the number of units proposed for the site. In response_ <br />to a question of Mr. Roy The_rnell, 6139 Arctic Way, Mr. Gittleman identified <br />the"high point" of the hill. Mr. L. A. Demee, 6116 Arctic Way, pointed out <br />that people who would be buying lots in Mr. Krahl's plat would be planting <br />trees to replace some of the trees that were removed. Mr. Darrell Stark, 5924 <br />Walnut Drive and Mr. E. H. Crow, 6113 Arctic Way, also spoke in opposition to <br />the proposal. Speaking in favor of Mr. Gittleman's proposal were Mr. Karl F. <br />Diessner, 6300 South Knoll Drive, Mr. George Sedgwick, 5809 Schaefer Road and <br />a resident of Scriver Road who all indicated that they would like to live in <br />such a development when they sell their present homes in Edina. Mrs. Virginia <br />Scott, 6613 Southcrest Drive, recalled the apartment that Council had already <br />approved at 66th and France Ave, Councilman Johnson said that he is not con- <br />vinced that either Mr. Krahl's single family plat or Mr. Gittleman's proposal <br />is best and that there should be some better plan for the property: He <br />recalled that in July, 1973, Council had turned down a PRD rezoning for the <br />following reasons 1) the density was too great; 2) traffic problems in the <br />jv area would be aggrevated; 3) land coverage is too great for such a unique <br />Q site. Councilman Johnson said that he believes that the first two reasons are <br />t�0 still as applicable at this time as last July and then moved that the petition <br />for PRD -3 zoning be denied:. Motion was seconded by Councilwoman Schmidt. In <br />response to a question of Councilman Courtney, City Attorney Erickson clarified <br />W that the property would remain R-1-and recalled that Mr. Krahl's plat has <br />received preliminary approval.

Mayor Van Valkenburg clarified that grades for the site and <br />plans for tree removal must be approved by the City. Mr. Krahl protested that <br />the Tree Ordinance would be retroactive as far as his plat is concerned and said <br />that if he had not been held up for this hearing, the trees would have.already <br />been cut down. An unidentified lady in the audience objected that they had been- <br />unable to sell their property because people were unsure as to what would be <br />going into the open space. Mr. Pieczentkowski was told by Mr. Erickson that <br />the zoning of the property could not be brought to hearing again for one year <br />after the date of a denial. <br />ORDINANCE'NO. 811 -A51 GRANTED FIRST READING.
