Minutes, June 5, 2012

I.        The meeting was called to order at 7:30 pm by Chairman Bill Lewis.  Members present were Lewis, Moore, Glazier, and Lumos.

II.      A motion by Glazier, seconded by Moore, to approve the minutes of the May 2, 2012 meeting was approved unanimously.

III.   New Business

A.      Plans were reviewed in the order of appearance:

1.      Harry and Stephanie Jones presented an application to have a 576 sq. ft. detached garage constructed on their property at 2035 Applegate, Block M, Lots 318 and 319.  The garage will be constructed by the Tuff Shed Company.  The plans showed a roof pitch of 5/12, rather than the 6/12 normally required.  All other aspects of the plan were in conformance to the requirements.  The garage will match the existing house, be gray with white trim and have a composition roof in a gray color.  Upon written confirmation that the roof pitch was acceptable to the Storey County Building Department, the plans were approved on June 7.  Since the pitch of the main house meets or exceeds the requirement for 6/12, and only 60% is required, the building department felt the proposed building meets code.  A fee of $75 was paid by check number 3099.

2.      Crystal Picket appeared representing her father Clarence Drake, with a written authorization from him.  The application is for two Tuff Sheds to be placed on the property at 21930 Panhandle Rd, Block N., Lot 52.  The sheds will be beige and brown with a brown composition roof.  The owner stated that the sheds are temporary until a permanent structure can be installed.   The application also includes a lift for handicap access to be installed at the back deck/patio area.  The application was approved.  No fee was applicable.

3.      Jerry and Linda Conners presented an application to add stone siding to their residence at 1320 Calaveras, Block U, Lot 32.  A sample of the stone was presented for the committee’s review.  The application was approved.  No fee was applicable.


IV.   Since there was no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:15 pm.


Respectfully submitted,

Rita Lumos, Member
