I Amending its original recom-l mendations to the council, the! commission agreed that each service station lot should have a minimum dimension of 120 feet, on either front or side, instead of the eailier nunimums of l2S-foot «idth and UO-fbot depth. Minimum area of 20,000 square feet would be an added requirement. j Another change was to delete the eariier spacing clause, that "no new service station sh^ he established widiin 500 fert of any esistmg service station.' the omission of this provision and the other alterations were approved nunimously. lUs was at least partially pleecing to Councilman Chrcs- ten M.

Sdiindler s»d it would be dtf- ficult if not impossible to eu' force a SOO-fbot spacing of stations, especially at freeway ramps, where developers seek proximity.
