motion by Moore, seconded by Lumos, to approve the minutes of the March 6, 2007
meeting was approved unanimously.
IV. NEW BUSINESS
Stanley, chairman of Fire Safe Highlands, explained that the contractor who is
disposing of the slash pile is unable to dispose of the larger stumps that are
dumped there. It is expensive to have them hauled away or otherwise removed.
He requested that the VCHPOA consider charging a fee of $30 per stump to be
removed during construction of new buildings. Chairman Lewis explained that
any fee would have to be imposed by the Board of Directors and said that he
would bring it before the board at their next meeting. Mr. Stanley suggested
that if someone wanted to use them for firewood they would be welcome to take
plans in order of sign-in:
1. Patrick Wherland presented plans for a shed at 1910
Empire Road, Lot 118A, Block M. Mr. Wherland wishes to place the shed within
the side yard building setback, approximately 10 feet from the property line,
rather than 15 feet. He submitted a letter signed by the adjacent property
owner stating that he has no objection to having the shed near his property
line. Mr. Wherland stated that there were several reasons for the request and
that the building would not be a permanent structure and could be moved to
another location if necessary. The shed will have natural colored cedar
siding with a green composition roof and will match the existing house. Mr.
Wherland was advised that he would have to move the shed if there were any
complaints in the future. Upon his agreement, the plans were approved. A fee
of $30 was paid by check number 3648.
2. William Hansen, representing Doug Strenge, presented
plans for a residence at 1524 Bonanza Road, Lot 13, Block M. The residence
will be 2592 square feet, be constructed with stone and log siding, and have a
green metal standing ridge roof. The plans were approved and a fee of $500 was
paid by check number 1003.
3. Eric Loyer, representing David Thomas and Pamela
Loy, presented plans for a remodel and addition to an existing residence at
21400 Saddleback Road, Lot 332, Block M. The addition will contain 1199 square
feet plus a garage. Siding will be Navajo Beige Hardy Board and the roof will
be green composition molded tile. The plans were approved and a fee of $75 paid
by check number 52.
4. Gene Webber presented plans for a new residence at
21475 Saddleback Road, Lot 344, Block M. The residence will be 2635 square
feet with Navajo Beige Hardy Board siding and a green metal roof. The plans
were approved and a fee of $500 paid by check number 124.
Possible violations of the CC&R’s.
Rita Lumos noted that an email had been received from an out
of town owner of property in the Highlands who had been informed that
construction nearby was encroaching onto his property. Mr. Lewis and Ms. Lumos
will inspect the property to try to determine if this is the case and who is
doing the neighboring construction.
Since not all committee members were absent the election of
officers was postponed until the May meeting.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned
at 8:15 pm.
