EVEREN Securities, 527 Newark Road
Mr. Miller brought a revised sign proposal to reflect the
business' new name, and GPC members felt that the new one echoes
what they were trying to convey at the last meeting. The trim
color will match the building, and the cream-colored post will
match trim on the sign. Mr. Myers suggested that Mr. Miller take
a good look at the height of the sign at installation and see
whether it might look better a little lower.

The Mineos wish to build a 231 sq. ft. addition to the back
of the house, add French doors, and add a new door on the side to
match one next door. Mr. Mineo explained that they intend to
enclose a screen porch and make a study and add a bathroom and
bring the washroom upstairs. Although the application specified

rest of the house.

WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Mr. Tailford brought to GPC' s attention an undated letter
from Matt McGowan listing several concerns, the only one on which
was relevant to this group concerned a Fed Ex box at Erinwood
Offices. This box (as well as pop machines but not including
Post Office boxes) is subject to the advertising sign code. Mr. Tailford had written Mr. McGowan a thoroughly researched but has response heard no more from him.
Although GPC felt this was not a big problem, since the Fed
Ex box is within the office complex and not very visible, consensus
felt that Mr. Tailford should draft a policy statement
delineating regulations on such receptacles. Mr. Myers stated
that consistency is important in order to avoid being arbitrary
or capricious. Ms. Montgomery stated that Village Council has
not discussed the letter nor taken a position as yet, therefore;
it would be appropriate for Mr. Tailford to draft a policy soon.
Adjournment: 8: 25 p. m.
Next Meeting: March 18. April meetings are the 8th and 22d.
