THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS DOES ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS: SECTION 1. Findings of Fact. The City Council of the City of Chino Hills finds and determines that the following statements of fact are true and correct: A. On March 10, 1998, the City Council following public testimony adopted Ordinance No. 102, an interim urgency ordinance under the provisions of Government Code section 65858 restricting development of Automobile Maintenance uses, Automobile Service Station uses, Car Wash uses, and Fortune-telling uses and providing for exceptions thereto, and prohibiting Billboard uses. B. On April 14, 1998, Ordinance No. 102 was extended for a period of ten (10) months and fifteen (15) days by the adoption of Ordinance No. 103. IIIC. During the effective life of Ordinance No. 103, revised regulations pertaining to Automobile Maintenance uses, Automobile Service Station uses, and Car Wash uses were adopted by the City and the portions of Ordinance No. 103 pertaining to such uses were repealed. D. An immediate threat to the public health, safety or welfare still exists with respect to the establishment of fortune telling and billboard uses in the City and the approval of any such uses under the City's existing zoning Aprdinance would result in that threat to the public health, safety or welfare. Such uses may contribute to blight or downgrading of the areas in which such uses are located. The City's current ordinances and regulations pertaining to such uses require additional study and possibly revision to ensure that the establishment of such uses in the City are consistent and compatible with surrounding land uses. E. On March 9, 1999, the City Council conducted a duly noticed public hearing, pursuant to Government Code section 65858 to consider that adoption of this Ordinance extending the interim restrictions imposed by Ordinance No. 103 with regard to the establishment of Billboard and Fortune- telling uses within the City. At said public hearing all those desiring to provide written or oral testimony were provided the opportunity to do so and the City Council considered all written and oral testimony prior to making a decision on extension of the interim measures. SECTION 2. The_inter,im restrictions on the establishment of Billboard and Fortune-telling uses set forth in Ordinance No. 103 are hereby extended for a period of one year pursuant to Government code section 65858 to March 10, 2000. The terms of Ordinance No. 103 pertaining to such uses, • including the approval of use sections pertaining to Fortune-telling uses, are incorporated by reference as though set forth fully herein. SECTION 3. This Ordinance shall be effective immediately upon its adoption and shall expire • and be of no further force and effect as of March 10, 2000. The Council finds that because the existing Ordinance will expire by its terms on March 10, 1999, there exists an immediate threat to the public health, safety or welfare, as described herein previously, that requires the immediate extension of Ordinance No. 103. ' SECTION 4. If any section, subsection, sentence, clause, phrase or word of this Ordinance is for any reason held to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted this Ordinance and each and every provision hereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more of said sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, phrases or words may be declared invalid. SECTION 5.
