PUBLIC FORUM:   None

 

COUNCIL LIAISON’S REPORT:  Mr. Sibilger said the Council would be setting goals at their meeting on January 15, 2011.  He also commented that this would be his last meeting.  A new liaison would be appointed to begin in January.

 

NEW BUSINESS:  Steve Gies from the Ashland Parks Department and Ali True from the Ashland Fire Department explained the Firewise program.  Mr. Gies said the Parks Department intends use a grant to upgrade the Parks Building and the old Auto Camp structure and the surrounding landscaping to meet the Firewise standards.  This would include replacing the existing comp roof with a metal roof, adding a rock wall and cutting back and trimming the trees and bushes.  Ms. Kencairn voiced concern over some of the more contemporary trimming methods described. There was consensus among the Commissioners to support the project feeling it would provide better fire protection to the historic buildings.  Commissioners indicated that they believed a standing seam metal roof, with no exposed fasteners, in a brown or bronze color, was compatible for a public building in the context of the upper Lithia Park location, particularly given the low pitch of the roof and resultant difficulties in keeping a composition roof free of moss and flammable debris, and the contact with the ground at the rear of the building.  Mr. Sibilger shared that the Council was considering a ban on wood roofs in Ashland as a result of the Oak Knoll fires.
