Roger L. Coombs, 218 East· Maple
The applicant stated that he would like to install a roof
over an existing concrete 12' x7' pad at the back of the house.
The pillars are to be like those on the front. Roofing materials
will be the same.

Louise-M. Daniels, 125 East College Street
This application was tabled at the last meeting. Ms.
Daniels wishes to enclose the front porch with modern-looking
glass panels with horizontal dividers and storm door. The Windows.
will not match those of the house. She has provided to Ms.
Wimberger kneewall material and skirting for over the lattice
behind bushes. Frame is to be put on the outside attached at the
ends. The house across the street has an enclosed porch addition
more in keeping with style of the house.
Mr. Myers felt that the new siding should match and that· the
lattice should be of siding provided. rather than the sample material she He thought such a porch might work in the back. Mr. Salvage does not think this plastic material fits in the AROD. Mr. Stansbury said that under Section 1161 it is important that any renovations be compatible with surrounding area, and he does not think this goes with the house at all. This plan would be a disservice to the village and he does not see any way to salvage it. Mr. Wilkenfeld thought someone could come up with a better plan and provided Ms. Daniels with names. MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS SUBMITTED. MR.
MYERS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY REJECTED.
Mr. Stansbury added that whoever Ms. Daniels talked to about the plans needs to know that her application was rejected so she can get her fees back.
Donald Contini, 431 East College Street
Mr. Contini is requesting a variance of 12" for a projecting sign for his nonconforming business. In November 1996 he received
approval for a sign, but the sign was never installed.
The timeframe has expired, so this is a new application. He
brought the sign in for GPC to look at, saying it is a name and
address ratiler than an advertising sign.
Ms. Wimberger stated that the bracket for the sign already
exists and originates from the wall of the building and could
therefore be considered a wall sign. A nonconforming use can only
have a wall sign. Since there was a sign there before and since
it is not in the middle of a residential area, it should be
Mr. Stansbury stated that ordinarily we have to go through a
variance process, but the ordinance says that we can approve it
without a variance if we wish. Since we like the sign, it should
be approved. 146- h r

William Hanes, 560 West Broadway
Mr. Hanes stated that he wants to build an addition which
would entail replace a 445 sq. ft. addition with a new addition
and a porch. He will match existing materials. Although this
falls within the TCOD 100' setback, the existing structure is
already within the setback and will not protrude farther than
existing portion of the house; most of the construction will be
in the side and rear yards.
Mr. Stansbury feels that in the TCOD as long as uniformity
is consistent, he sees no problem.
MR. SALVAGE MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS SUBMITTED. MR. WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Dr. and Mrs. Lee Davis, 304 North Pearl Street
John Noblick, builder, to do explained that the applicant wishes off thea restoration and replace siding with redwood siding, take green natural roof and replace it with new real slate and gcaorpapgeer,, tear down a modern carport and add breezeway and twoc-ar build new stone chimney, replace existing side porch, and add new shutters and picket fence (within the ROW). They will
apply to BZBA for setback variances on the side.
Mr. Salvage does not object to putting a fence along the ROW, but really wants to see drawings. Maybe we can omit the fence from our approval now but sees no reason why they cannot get started on the house. Mr. Myers added tat the location of the fence in relation to sidewalk needs clarification.
Mr. Noblick will get a drawing to Ms. Wimberger of the fence before the next meeting. His surveyor is working on a survey, and Mthse. RWOiWm.berger will research legal aspects of putting a fencein
