The fourth petition asked for a change in use from residential to multiple dwelling of the Uhlis property on the west side of Sutton Place from Oakland to Winona. Councilmen agreed with the commission that until a land use study is made, decisions on change of use should be held up as spot zoning at his time would tend to defeat the work in city planning. They moved that the hearings on the four petitions be postponed until the June Council meeting. Protests Remain on File Approximately 25 citizens appeared, intending to express opposition at the hearings. They were told that their petitions of protest would remain on file and, if they desired, they could also write to the planning commission in expressing their views. Mayor Baldy Hansen said that while it might work some hardship on, the petitioners, he felt neither the commission nor the Council was in position at this time to make an intelligent decision on zoning.
