permit.

Councilman Paul Freeman was absent.

The council approved amendments to three sections of the zoning

municipal code.

The revised parking code repeals the off-site parking spaces

special provision and eliminates compact-sized parking spaces and

requires that all new parking spaces be a standard size.

Parking, Traffic and Circulation Committee.

The council approved a contract to repair El Toro Road.

WHAT IT MEANS:

American Asphalt will receive a contract in the amount of $431,528

to resurface El Toro Road from Laguna Canyon Road to just beyond the

eastern limits of the city.

WHAT HAPPENED:

The council approved a proposal to award a contract for

construction and to transfer finds for the Skyline Drive and Hilledge

Drive Storm Drain extensions project.

WHAT IT MEANS:

City staff will transfer $75,000 from the Mystic Hills/Skyline

Drive storm drain project to the Skyline Drive/Hilledge Drive storm

The council denied an appeal to revoke building permits at 955 and

961 S. Coast Highway.

WHAT IT MEANS:

A private property owner and four tenants protested notification

procedures by the city about a construction project on South Coast

the applicants for the project intentionally misrepresented the scope

of the building to the Design View Board or committed fraud to obtain

a building permit.

Councilwoman Toni Iseman dissented.
