The City Council Tuesday reviewed the results of an advisory post card survey on ways to maintain park and recreational uses at the former Dapplegray Intermediate School but delayed action on the options until its Nov. 10 meeting.
The council passed a resolution urging the Palos Verdes Peninsula School District not to sell the site at 3011 Palos Verdes Drive North. The council prefers that the school district lease the property in case additional schools are needed in the future.
The council also asked City Atty. Richard Terzian to report back on the possibility of rezoning the land as agricultural, which would allow one unit per acre instead of the current two under the RA-20,000 zone. City Manager Raymond B. Taylor said the surrounding residential area is zoned either agricultural or RA-20,000.
Taylor reported that 1,065 residents--or 37%--returned the post cards, which were sent to each household in the city.
Of those, nearly 46% favored an agreement between the city and the school district which would set aside 10 acres for a city park in exchange for giving the district the right to develop the remaining 33 acres into 61 single-family homes.
