Minutes of August 10:

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE MINUTES AS PRESENTED; MR.

MYERS SECONDED, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Citizens Comments: None.

New Business:

Dave Shumway, 204 North Granger Street

Mr. Shumway described the plans for a solid wooden fence

with two gates in the north and west edges of the property. The

fence on the north side is on the neighbor' s property line, and

neighbor is not opposed to the fence. For better visibility, the

portion of fence extending from the edge to the sidewalk will be

42" and the rest, 4' high.

Mr. Shumway said there are ornamental shrubs along the 0

sidewalk and the fence would be before them, but, SEC members 6 would like to see the fence moved back at least 1(3,P: from the

sidewalk in order to prevent a formidable wall for children

passing by and soften the look of the fence and make it easier to

care for the strip than 12" would. A picket or iron fence would

present less of a barrier feeling, but Mr. Shumway has already

purchased the solid fence. The issue of appearance would fall

under our purview as part of the general welfare provisions.

Consensus of the members was to move the fence either 3'

back or place it behind the existing shrubs. With a different

style fence, however, it could be 1' from the sidewalk.

MR. WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION WITH THE

CONDITION THAT THE FENCE PORTION ALONG GRANGER STREET BE SET

BACK 3' FROM THE EDGE OF THE SIDEWALK. MR. SALVAGE SECONDED,

AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Rodney and Deborah McPeek, 133 South Prospect Street

The McPeeks wish to widen the existing driveway to provide

more parking area on funeral occasions and to better line up the

drive. Mrs. McPeek explained that in their ignorance they went

ahead and completed the job without proper permissions, but after

a lengthy wait the asphalt company showed up and the applicants

were not willing to postpone the project any longer. It will be

necessary to acquire a setback variance.

MR.

MR.

WILKENFELD MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS PRESENTED.

SALVAGE SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Jeffery A. Oster, 1159 Cherry Valley Road

Mr. Oster wishes to convert the house into a shoe store in

accordance with regulations of the PUD. He studied the

suggestions provided at the work session and incorporated them

into his application. He will trim the trees in order to make

the sign more visible, and planned the gravel parking area in the

rear.

Mr. Wilkenfeld was very much concerned about how the

ingress/egress would fit in with future development in the area.

The applicant of course cannot know what will happen in the

future and cannot build a service road and is unwilling to leave

himself open to a commitment to build one. Any new tenant would

have to work with and around this parking lot. However, the

applicant might have to agree to provide access through his lot

for interconnecting parking lots.

Mr. Wernet stated that the issue of planning the Cherry

Valley area for interconnections in the rear is something that

could be recommended to Village Council in their consideration of

the new Master Plan currently underway. Ms. Wimberger will get

to us information about possible recommendations to V.C.

MR. MYERS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION WITH THE CONDITION

THAT THE APPLICANT PARTICIPATE IN A JOINT ACCESS AT SOME

TIME IN THE FUTURE WHEN CHERRY VALLEY IS REDONE. MR.

WILKENFELD SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

George Williamson

The applicant wishes to add a second-story bay window above

the existing window and will match existing window in style and

size. There will be two skylights. Mr. Gerano explained the

design for the new window, and members had no objections to

application.

MR. MYERS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION AS PRESENTED; MR.

BURRISS SECONDED, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
