Minutes - July 1, 2008


I.     The meeting was called to order by Chairman Walter Fox at 7:30 pm.  Attending were Mr. Fox, Andy Biederman, and Rita Lumos.

II.     A motion by Biederman, seconded by Fox to approve June 3, 2008 minutes was approved unanimously.

III.     New Business

A.    Review plans in order of sign-in:

1.     Rich and Vicki Leverent presented plans for a shed to be placed on Lot 10, Block H, 2485 Cartwright.  The shed will be 10’ X 16’ and will match the house with T111 siding and a slate gray roof.  They requested that the shed be placed within 7 feet of the side yard.  They were informed that the shed must meet the side yard setback of 15 feet or a variance would be required from Storey County.  The plans were approved.  No fee was charged.

2.     Loren Wilder presented plans for an 8’ X 24’ storage building on Lot 56, Block I, 21590 Dortort.  The siding will be T111, cedar in color with a brown roof to match the existing residence.  The building will sit on piers, not a permanent foundation.  The plan was approved and no fee charged.  Mr. Wilder was advised to consult with the Building Department as to whether a building permit would be required for this type building.

3.     Mary Hoover and Louis Jackson presented plans for a 24’ X 26’ addition to the existing residence on Lot 12, Block I, 21570 Dortort.  The addition will match the existing structure in material and color.  The plans were approved and a fee of $75 paid by check number 9872.

4.     Joe Alt presented a revised plot plan for a garage for Allen Byers and Renee Clark that had been previously approved.  A survey of the property revealed that the previous plan would not meet setback requirements.  The plan was approved and no fee charged.

5.     Kevin Clay applied to repaint the residence on Lot 1, Block H, 2421 Grizzley road.  The colors submitted meet the architectural guidelines and were approved.  No fee was charged.

B.    Possible violations of the CC&R’s

A previously filed complaint regarding a shed on Cartwright Road was reviewed.  The shed had been approved and was found to be in compliance.

No new violations were brought to the committee’s attention.

IV.     There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:40 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Rita Lumos, Member
