The request is for architectural review and approval of the installation of an emergency stand-by generator with concrete pad at the rear of the property. 

 

Swearing in of Witnesses – Mr. Ryan swore in Deb Walker and Gerald Martin. 

 

Discussion:

Gerald Martin, 2276 Hankinson Road, explained the proposed generator is 100 GH generation.  Ms. Walker stated the generator location would be within the enclosed dumpster area that would be enlarged by two feet.  She stated this should not impede anything since the enlarged area is towards the west service doors.  Ms. Walker stated there would be gates to access the generator for service and a 9x20 feet long concrete slab would be poured.  Mr. Mitchell asked the approximate thickness of the concrete.  Mr. Martin explained the concrete would be between three to six inches (3”- 6”) thick and would match up with the concrete already poured for the grease pit.  Mr. Mitchell asked if Mr. Martin is proposing any bollards for protection of the unit.  Mr. Martin stated there are already bollards on the west side and he wouldn’t be opposed to placing them on the east side.  The Planning Commission suggested the bollards be installed if Mr. Martin wants to protect his investment.  Mr. Mitchell stated the bollards could be located within the fence if they are installed.
