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

 

PUBLIC HEARING:

 

PLANNING ACTION:  2008-01700

SUBJECT PROPERTY:   21 Winburn Way

APPLICANT:  Thomas Beam

DESCRIPTION:  A request for a Site Review for an exterior change to a Historic Contributing building and for an intensification of use from retail to restaurant. Changes include window addition and ducting for kitchen equipment. No additional square footage is proposed.

 

Mr. Skibby pointed out that this project was reviewed and approved as a PreApp in November and that the current plans reflected the suggested changes.  The applicants were not in attendance and there was no one in the audience.  There were no comments from other Commissioners. 

 

Mr. Skibby made a motion to recommend approval of the project as presented.  Ms. Renwick seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

 

 

DISCUSSION ITEMS: 

 

PreApp for 479 A Street, Steve & Kathy Hoxmeier:  Site review to add 2 rear decks.  The Hoxmeiers were not present and there was no one in the audience to speak.  Several Commissioners commented that they did not like the iron railing since it was not compatible with the rest of the railings on the front of the building.  They did approve using matching siding for the lower deck railing for privacy issues. 

 

Chairman Shostrom made a motion to recommend approval with the condition that the upper deck railings are to match existing deck railings, as the proposed wrought iron is not a compatible material. The lower, cedar-sided deck is fine as shown.  Mr. Whitford seconded the motion and passed unanimously.
