In response to a burgeoning slow-growth movement, the City Council voted Tuesday night to establish a study group to examine the city's development policies.
The group will include representatives of the City Council, the Planning Commission and Glendora Pride, a citizens group that is calling for stricter controls on development.
The group will review the city's zoning laws, particularly its rural hillside residential ordinance, which was adopted in 1973 to establish rigid standards for grading and construction in the foothills.
Slow-growth advocates have complained that the ordinance is not being adequately enforced and that the council and Planning Commission have been too quick to grant variances to developers. At a meeting Monday night, council members disputed this charge and said residents must become more involved in city government if they want a greater say in development decisions.
