Regular meeting: January 10, 2011
A meeting of the Village of Riverlea Planning Commission was held January 10, 2011 at 5830 Falmouth Court. Members present were Michael Jones (Planning Commissioner), Jo Ann Bierman, and Bryce E. Jacob. Donald McCarthy was absent. Also present Dan McIntyre and Lisa Musy. Jeff Colwell served as Acting Clerk. The Planning Commissioner called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm.
- The minutes of the Planning Commission meeting of July 12, 2010 were not read since each member had received a copy. Jacob moved and Bierman seconded a motion that the minutes be approved as submitted by the Clerk-Treasurer. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 3; Bierman, Jacob and Jones: Nay, None. The Motion carried 3-0.
- An application for a Certificate of Appropriateness by D.D Frye & Co. at 5818 Crescent Court to build a single family home with 4 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths of approximately 2600 square feet. Dan Frye made the presentation. The plans were discussed and clarifying questions answered by Mr. Frye. The corner boards will be changed to 1”x6” instead of the 1”x4” as indicated on the plans, and will be made from Paulownia. The front door will be wood and stained. Chimney surface above the roof line will be covered with Hardie board and corner boards to match its use elsewhere on the house. There was discussion on garage access from the easement at the east end of the lot, and with the site plan provided by Mr. McIntyre during the meeting, the Committee is satisfied there will be adequate access from West Riverglen. The Village will require that a new concrete driveway apron be installed on West Riverglen according to code. Mr. Frye was encouraged to consider a raised panel garage door instead of the flat panels on the plan, and was also cautioned to ensure that the garage side lights do not exceed spillover maximums for the adjacent properties. The detailed landscape plan has not been completed yet by Mr. Frye, and the Committee will want to see that as soon as it is available. The previously submitted site plan meets the Village lot coverage requirements. Jacob moved that the application be approved. Bierman seconded the motion. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 3; Bierman, Jacob and Jones: Nay, None. The Motion carried 3-0.
- The Commission took no additional action. Jacob moved and Bierman seconded a motion to adjourn. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 3; Bierman, Jacob and Jones: Nay, None. The Motion carried 3-0. The meeting was adjourned at 7:35 pm.
