SuMdoy, Oct. 20. 1957* Von Nuyi (Calif.) NEWS--13-. sisted that the Planning Commission plan for industrialization, of the area anticipated landscaping of the 100-foot buffet fcone rather than parking use^the committee lacked unanimity. Plan Developed Being prepared for submission to McGee with the majority report is a minority report by H. C. Mathers who is president of the Industrial Association of the San Fernando Valley and who, acting in that official capacity, has issued a. statement to the effect that the association intends "wholeheartedly" to stand back of action taken by the Planning Dept. and the City Council on the zoning ordinance affecting the Nordhoff-Winnetka ' i n d u s t r i a l tract. Referring to efforts being made by West Valley residents to change the buffer zone plan provided for by the City Council, Mathers explained that "after due process of law" in which many "well "publicized" hearings were held,-at which many of the objectors were present, a plan was developed and submitted by the Planning Commission which was later approved by the City Council. Changes Mean Delay These plans call for a 100- foot building setback on properties facing residential areasj and a 50-foot setback on streets where the industrial property faces other industrially zoned land. This setback is to be designated "P" zone, where parking is permitted. Hearings on this proposed industrial area extended over many "months and were opposed by a certain group who carried their case to the State Soupreme Court, where decision was given in favor of the City 'on all points raised, Mathers reported. "It has been suggested-that proposed changes at this ..late date can mean nothing more than an attempt to ,delay action, thus hindering substantial industries anxious to start construction in this area," he said. Expresses Opinion "It is also the belief of members of the Association that this delay might be the cause for legal action for damages by the property owners who have waited for the p l a n n e d improvements to reach a stage where the property could be sold." Mathers again voiced the opinion that the Association is against any program under which, through confisca- tory tactics, property prices are .forced far beyond that ·which is being paid In other areas. He further .expressed the opinion that the Association deplores any legislation which tends to make*industry the whipping boy of the community. Committee Named He expressed confidence in the Los Angeles Planning Dept, stating that the staff is well trained in planning programs acceptable in this FORMER RESIDENT DIES IN OREGON Mrs. Mary Douglas Kirfc ham, formerly Van Nuys resident, died Oct. 16 in a hospital in Medford, Ore., after a lingering illness, according to relatives here.
