CALL TO ORDER – REGULAR MEETING

 

At 7:00 pm, Chairman Dale Shostrom called the Historic Commission meeting to order.

 

APPROVAL OF MINUTES

 

Ms. Boswell pointed out that there was an error in the approval of minutes.  It was the January minutes that were approved not December. Mr. Baker made a motion to approve the February 6, 2008 minutes as amended and it was seconded by Ms. Renwick.  Approval was unanimous with Mr. Skibby and Mr. Watkins abstaining because they were absent from the meeting.

 

PUBLIC FORUM:  Tom Phillips and Midge Theirols reviewed with the Commissioners two alternate models of the Carol Wheeldon memorial bench design. There was discussion concerning the placement and landscaping options.  Most of the Commission preferred the design with the center rock column and the refined plank seat.  Mr. Krach felt the design was too rustic and that it violated the original simple and classic design of the Siskiyou landscape as it was planned 100 years ago. Mr. Skibby supported the design. Ms. Theirols commented that other locations or designs could be explored.

 

Mr. Skibby made a motion to give approval for the concept of the upright center rock columned bench style with refined slabs subject to returning to the full Commission with detailed, to scale site plans showing landscaping, plantings, surfacing and materials.  The motion was seconded by Mr. Giordano.  A roll call vote was called for.  Mr. Skibby, Mr. Baker and Mr. Watkins voted yes. Mr. Swink, Mr. Giordano, Ms. Renwick, Mr. Krach, and Chairman Shostrom voted no.  The motion failed.
