APPROVAL OF MINUTES

 

Mr. Baker moved to approve the minutes of the October 8, 2008 meeting as presented.  Mr. Whitford seconded the motion and they were approved unanimously with Mr. Shostrom and Mr. Krach abstaining due to their absence from the meeting. 

 

PUBLIC FORUM:   There being no one wishing to speak, Chairman Shostrom closed the Public Forum.

 

DISCUSSION ITEMS: 

 

PreApp 21 Winburn Way :  Tom Sager and Tom Beam discussed the need to run an exhaust duct for the kitchen range attached to the rear of the building and running up to the roof.  Because of an apartment on the second story, they could not install it within the building.  The 22 x 10 duct would be metal and painted to match the building color.  The plan was to move the rear awning to the left.  Chairman Shostrom preferred the awning to remain in the same location and asked if the awning could be designed to allow the duct to go through it.  The applicants suggested minimizing the pitch of the awning to allow it to be attached below the duct and allow it to be in the position suggested by Chairman Shostrom.  This suggestion was accepted by the Commissioners.

 

PreApp 426 A Street:  Christopher Brown, designer and Louis Plummer, owner presented preliminary plans for a mixed use building on the corner of A Street and Third Street.  The existing house is too deteriorated to save.  The 2-story L-shaped building would be sited 8-feet from the front property line and 4-feet from the east property line.  Chairman Shostrom was concerned about the lack of eaves on the east side closest to the residential lots.  He suggested using sheetrock above the eave timbers and utilizing timber sizes that would meet fire codes.  Mr. Brown stated he would investigate the suggestion and try to incorporate it into the design.  The applicants explained that the block wall on that side would be softened with vegetation as part of the landscape plan.  The two large trees on the street sides were being retained and protected and a pedestrian common area was being planned in front of the entrances.  Mr. Brown also commented the building would be Leeds certified.  The Commissioners felt the building would be compatible with the neighborhood and appreciated the design elements and the public spaces.
