Regular meeting: April 12, 2010
A meeting of the Village of Riverlea Planning Commission was held April 12, 2010 at 5830 Falmouth Court. Members present were Michael Jones (Planning Commissioner), Lisa J. Morris, and Bryce E. Jacob. Jo Ann Bierman was absent. Also present were Josh Schoenberger, Donald Griffith and Jeff Colwell. Pamela M. Colwell served as Clerk. The Planning Commissioner called the meeting to order at 7:30 pm.
- The minutes of the Planning Commission meeting of March 8, 2010 were not read since each member had received a copy. Jacob moved and Morris seconded a motion that the minutes be approved as submitted by the Clerk-Treasurer. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 3; Jacob, Morris and Jones: Nay, None. The Motion carried 3-0.
- An application for a Certificate of Appropriateness by Josh Schoenberger at 250 West Riverglen Drive to change the size of a window on the east side of the house and to remove a deck and add a stamped concrete patio. Because of a kitchen remodel, the floor to ceiling window is being replaced with a smaller 3’5” x 3’5” casement window. The window is only partially visible from the street. The existing wood deck is being removed and a stamped concrete patio will be installed. There is an existing drain that will be used or improved. The concrete will be a gray tone and the stamped design will be rectangular. Lot coverage is 32%. Jacob moved and Morris seconded the motion to approve the application with the addition of the color of the concrete being grayish and the stamped design being rectangular. The Commissioner requested a photo or drawing of the stamped concrete design. A street bond will not be necessary as long as the trucks are parked on the street. There were no further comments. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 3; Jacob, Morris and Jones: Nay, None. The motion carried 3-0.
An application for a Certificate of Appropriateness by Jeff and Pam Colwell at 5814 Westchester Court to add a shed dormer to the back of the second floor (east side) for a closet. The Commission requires three votes to affirm an application and since one member will have to abstain due to a conflict of interest, the application was tabled until a special meeting can be held where there will be at least three voting members of the Commission.
- The Commissioner asked if the meeting time could be changed to 7:00 p.m. instead of 7:30 pm. There were no objections so the starting time for future Planning Commission meetings will be 7:00 pm
The Commission took no additional action. Morris moved and Jones seconded a motion to adjourn. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 3; Jacob, Morris and Jones: Nay, None. The Motion carried 3-0. The meeting was adjourned at 7:45 pm.
Michael Jones, Planning Commissioner
