Carolyn Blum, 110 East Broadway, indicated that she wanted to have a work session with the Planning Commission to discuss installing downspouts on the church and this would be a different look from what is currently there. Ms. Plum stated that the wood is rotted out. Mr. Mitchell asked if they would be changing the natural material to EIFS siding on the steeple. Mr. Burriss stated that the EIFS level of detailing is existing. Mr. Mitchell stated that there would need to be approval for any additional downspouts, but the rest of the items Ms. Blum is discussing are considered to be general maintenance. Ms. Blum stated that the brick on the church was covered with stucco and stone in the 1960’s. Mr. Mitchell asked why they feel that they need additional downspouts. Ms. Blum stated that they have been told by the architect that these are needed because of water damage. Mr. Burriss stated that there has been some question as to whether or not the downspouts were replaced with a different size of gutter than what was previously in place. He noted that the current downspouts are located in the middle of the building. Mr. Mitchell stated that the slope of the gutters may have to be changed with the additional downspouts. Mr. Johnson asked if there is access to the attic. Ms. Blum stated yes. Ms. Terry confirmed that the applicant would only need approval for additional downspouts. She stated that if they do any maintenance, to please call and let the Village know the start date.
