City Council Second appeal for apartment denied A second appeal by City Councilman Angelo Seaiese of the Planning Com- mission's denial of his apartment ad- dition application was rejected last week by the Ci'y Council. City Planning consultant Ron Dering outlined for the council the long history of Scalese's application for con- struction of an 800 square foot apart- ment at a house divided into four apartments at 311 N. Cloverdale Boulevard. Scalese's original application to the Planning Commission was denied on July 2. He then appealed the matter to the City Council on July 22. The Council said it could not make a decision on the matter because Sealese had made some changes in the plot plan since the original application. Planning Commissioners again denied the apartment addition when it came Ietore them on August e. Their basic obJeeUon was the new It; .... He showed the council a number of photo of local construction that he said show poor design review judgment by the Commission. "I agree with your pictm.el 100 percent, but all of those wrongs don't make a right," said Councilwoman Marie Vandagriff. Because of the absence of Mayor Jack Domenieheili, due to illness, the council seemed at a temporary lou as to whether Scalese's appeal should he deferred. Vice Mayor Jerry Moore told Scalese: "I would prefer to handle this at your own suggestion." At first Sealese said he favored deferring the matter but later said "all right get it over with" when Councilman CoIMdon pressed for a vote. Scalese's appeal was deniedby a 3-0 vote. .

"Nothing on the ground changes," Scalese told the council, referring to his plans to construct the apartment on an existing deck and then build a large recreation deck over several of the new parking spaces. During a public hearing, Scalese repeatedly said his apartment addition will benefit the community by offering another rental unit as well as allowing tenant parking in the rear instead of on the street. "I'm sorry to say this about our Planning Commission, but they are nnexperienced." Sealese said He said the Commission does not have any members who are architects, engineers or other members of the construction trade. Commissioner Joe Otto later in- formed the council that he is a licensed contractor currently building in- Cloverdale. Scalese also said his project would be a much better one than other residential construction that has been okayed by the Planning Commission.. recognition Janice Corey, editor of the Ciovecdale Reveille and Geyservllle Prels, received national recognition and bear last week when she was awarded fourth place "Honorable Mention" in the American Legion Auxiliary Golden Press Award National CompettUen, held at the national conventiee in Boston, Massachussetts.

A five-acre site, located bet- ween the pro freeway frontage road and the South Street off ramp, has been set aside by the state for the depot. Council members voted to inform CalTrana that the city is interested in going ahead with the relocation plans. Dan Pete.son, a Santa Rosa architect who specializes in historic preservation projects, including the relotion of the old Santa Rosa Post Office, said the depot can be moved by an ordinary house move'. Pete.sen said the depot's square nail and timber construction ia still structurally sound as well as ar- chitecturally interesting. He estimated the depot is 2,300 to 2,6o0 square feet in size.
