The fifth alternative incorporates several major changes based on the Committee's comments and discus- sions with the City Planning Staff. The new plan adds more areas in the Destination Commercial cate- gory. A "Community Service Com- mercial" area is shown near the exist- ing auto dealership south of town for a possible future auto mall. Some industrial acreage is indi- cated immediately west of the air- port for possible airport-related uses. Development of the western hill- sides has been scaled down with a one unit per 160 acres for the highest elevations. This portion of Alterna- tive Five created some controversy among property owners attending the meeting who thought the density much too low. Flatter lands have higher densities.Purpose of the 160 acre limitation was to preserve open space. "People don't want to see high densities on these hillsides," Com- mittee Chairman Jim Teague said. A mixed desgnation is shown for dale Blvd. near Third Street to allow for professional offices and residen- tial uses. This area is small in order to see that core elements of the Downtown Specific Plan are not undermined by competing office/ commercial uses elsewhere. The category "service commer- cial" has been changed to "commu- nity service commercial" to reflect the purpose and intent of this use more clearly. This designation pro- motes community serving commer- cial uses with easy accessibility and convenience. It is applied near the Highway 101 Bypass and near resi- dential neighborhoods where appro- priate. Location of a future school site, although regarded by the planners and Committee as essential, awaits information from the Cloverdale Unified School District administra- tion and trnstee. At a recent joint study session between the City Council, City staff and two District trustees, as well as Superintendent Don Sate, the Coun- cil asked the district to submit enroll- ment projections for various grade levels and future school site needs to be incorporated in the plan. The fifth alternative would ac- the City up to 20,526. Charles Rowe, who represents the public-at-large on the General Plan Committee, objected to this high figure. He said the plan should re- fleet the maximum growth that best reflects the desires of the residents. He indicated that a build-out of 20,000 was much higher than he felt the people of Cloverdale would like to see. He suggested a plan to accom- modate 15,000. Planning Commission Chairman Jim Remain, who is a member of the Committee, commented that the plan covers a study area wider than the city limits and it it not possible at this point to know just how much development is going to take place. Chairman Teague, who is also a Councilmember, remarked, "We will never see 20,000 in our lifetime. You can't really project. Further- more the City will be redoing this General Plan in another 10 years. In the meantime we will be lucky to see 5000 in the next 5 to 10 years," The plan also would generate 5000 more jobs and the Committee noted that this would exceed the number of available houses. The planners were asked to address this issue in their next revision. 1 Woman of Distinction onTheCmmittee will begin workthe policy statement as its next Continued high demands assignment or .i. =*00hin00on put Food Pantry in jeopardy , Viola Groves as the 1991 service humbles me.
