Mr. Shostrom moved to approve the November 2, 2011 minutes. The motion was seconded by Mr. Swink and was approved unanimously.
COUNCIL LIAISON REPORT:  Mr. Morris discussed the previous night’s Council meeting. At that meeting they discussed lighting the Central Ashland Bike path, the Council discussed the Pedestrian Places ordinances and that it was not realized by the Council and some of the Planning Commission that some of the ordinance modifications applied to areas outside of the Pedestrian Places Overlay. Council asked staff to draft a report on what changes are outside of the Ped Places overlay for discussion.  The Council also passed first reading of an ordinance that would permit the Planning and Housing Commissions to reduce their member numbers from nine to seven.
PLANNING ACTION:         2011-01529                                        
SUBJECT PROPERTY:     212 E. Main Street
APPLICANT:                      Technology Associates
DESCRIPTION:   A request for a Conditional Use Permit and Site Review approval for the installation of a new antenna and upgrade of an existing unmanned wireless communications facility on the roof of the Ashland Springs Hotel for the property located at 212 East Main Street. COMPREHENSIVE PLAN DESIGNATION: Downtown Commercial; ZONING: C-1-D; ASSESSOR’S MAP: 39 1E 09 BC; TAX LOT: 100
Chairman Shostrom asked if there were any exparte contacts or conflicts of interest. 
Ms. Gunter explained the proposal. That the antennas were to be co-located with other wireless communication facilities and that the application was to upgrade the facilities to keep up with rapidly changing technology. The proposed antenna will be behind the existing louvers on the parapet and that the louvers will be replaced with radio frequency permeable canvas that would match the existing. Other antenna will be located behind the darkened glass of the elevator shaft.
Ms. Renwick made a motion to recommend approval of the modification as shown.  Mr. Whitford seconded the motion and it was approved unanimously.

Ms. Renwick asked why the Historic Commission Review Board had not made recommendations on a remodel that was occurring at 115 Fork Street. Ms. Gunter explained that potentially the work did not require a permit or possibly the property owner / contractor had not obtained a permit as that address did not ring a bell. Ms. Renwick said she would contact the owners.
Ms. Gunter shared a letter from Bill Emerson, Building Designer regarding his participation in the plan drawings for the restoration of Perozzi fountain in Lithia Park. He wanted the Historic Commission to know about his participation. The letter was to the editor of the Mail Tribune.  


It was the unanimous decision of the Commission to adjourn the meeting at 6:41 p.m.
