II.    Members attending:

Present were members Bill Lewis, Robert Moore, Walter Fox, and Rita Lumos.  Chairman Lewis declared a quorum was present.

III.  Approve April 3, 2007 Minutes.

A motion by Fox, seconded by Moore, to approve the minutes of the April 3, 2007 meeting was approved unanimously.


A.       Review plans in order of sign-in:

1.    Jerry Conners presented plans for a detached garage at 1320 Calaveras, Lot 32 Block U.  The garage will have a cobblestone finish siding in Coal Canyon gray with a composition roof, Charcoal Blend in color.  The plans were approved and a fee of $75 paid by check number 3311. 

2.    Eric Loyer, representing David Thomas and Pamela Loy, presented a revised plot plan for an addition to the residence at 21400 Saddleback Road, Lot 332, Block M.  Mr. Loyer explained that a survey of the property had revealed that the original house had been built closer to the road easement than the original plan called for.  He asked for a variance to the setback easement due to this fact and the existence of a large rock outcropping which would not allow the addition to be moved further back on the lot.  The survey and revised plot plan showed that the addition would be approximately 30 feet from the existing road, but within the setback from the road easement.  A variance from Storey County will be required.  A motion by Moore, seconded by Fox, to recommend the variance was approved unanimously.  No further fees were assessed.

3.    Randy Hale presented plans for a new residence at 1655 Nugget Road, Lot 36, Block M.  The residence will be 1562 square feet with a detached two car garage.  The siding will be wood, stained with a Behr Woodbridge brown stain with Chestnut brown trim. The roof will be a composition roof, brown in color.  The plans were approved and a fee of $500 paid by check number 657. 

B.    Possible violations of the CC&R’s.

No violations were reported.

C.    Election of Officers

Wallace Fox was elected to the position of chairman of the committee.  Mr. Lewis will remain on the committee as an advisor, but does not wish to remain in an active capacity.

V.    Adjourn

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:15 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Rita M. Lumos, member
