Kathy Shurtz, Shepardson Condominiums
Ms. Shurtz had planned to be present to discuss alternatives to her "No Trespassing" signs in a residential district, which was denied at the last meeting, but she was absent. Mr. Reyazi said the signs are still up and she must take them down.
Having received some complaints about the vending machines at Bennett' s and IGA, Mr. Reyazi wanted to discuss the policy adopted in 1996. Being considered as signs, any change must be in compli- ance with sign ordinances. These machines have been there for a long time, and Ms. Robertson reminded the group that any change in any sign means it must be in compliance with regulations. Mr. Marshall stated that the signs are owned by the vending machine company and the property owner pays a certain percentage of income to him. Mr. Salvage thought this policy would not include other signs at a business.
Mr. Reyazi wants to photograph vending machines and tell the Poeple involved that this is the policy and if they change any- thing, consider themselves notified in advande. Any new machines require approval.

VIII. F. Mr. Reyazi will check with Mr. Hurst about swearing in a person who wants to give evidence and about the difference between a Public Hearing and a Hearing. In a Hearing for a zoning Certificate, neighbors do not need to be notified. Mr. Marshall added that appeal hearings are held in public but are not public hearings; people have to speak during Citizens' Comments. Ms. Robertson stated that a PUD application changes the zoning code so it is necessary to have a public hearing.
