Discussion regarding Application #09-143:

Shawn Bogan, roofer, stated that he was representing the homeowner, Jeanetta Pyle, because she was unable to attend the Planning Commission meeting.  Mr. Bogan indicated that he would be the roofer.  He provided a sample of the exact shingle to be used.  Mr. Burriss questioned how the ridge detail would be handled.  Mr. Bogan indicated that the ridge detail and finials would be the same as the existing details and color.  Mr. Johnson asked if the eaves would be vented.  Mr. Bogan indicated that the vents would be installed in the soffits.  Vents will also be vented in the ridges.  The vents would be two-inch round and painted to match the trim.  Mr. Burriss asked if the ridge lines would be higher.  Mr. Bogan indicated that the ridges would be perhaps one half inch higher. There will be no changes to the gutters or down spouting.


The Planning Commission reviewed the Standards and Criteria pertaining to Application #09-143:


a)      Is stylistically compatible with other new, renovated and old structures in the Village District.  Other slate roofs have been permitted to be replaced in this district. The Planning Commission concluded yes.

b)      Contributes to the improvement and upgrading of the historical character of the Village District.  As the applicant would be maintaining the same ridge and finial details and using materials that would maintain the look of slate, the applicant would be maintaining the historical character of the district.  The Planning Commission concluded yes. 

c)      Contributes to the continuing vitality of the District.  By contributing to the vitality of a structure in the district, it maintains the entire district. The Planning Commission concluded yes. 

d)      Protects and enhances examples of the physical surroundings in which past generations lived.  The improvements are a reproduction of the original material and detail, which protects and enhances the physical surroundings. The Planning Commission concluded yes.
