Minutes, May 6, 2014

I.        Chairman Bill Lewis called the meeting to order at 7:30 pm.  Members present were Lewis, Glazier, and Lumos.  McGuffey was excused due to a conflicting commitment.

II.      A motion by Glazier, seconded by Lumos, to approve the minutes of the April 1 minutes was approved unanimously.

III.   New Business

A.      Plans were reviewed in the order of appearance:

1.      Don and Michelle Barthelomew appeared to complete their application to construct a new residence at 21430 Saddleback Road, Lots 335 and 336, Block M.  They provided documentation of an approved variance of the height restriction and roof pitch from Storey County.  The plan had been revised to conform to the approval by the VCHPOA Board of Directors on Feb. 11, 2014.  The application was approved and a fee of $500 was paid by check number 1041.

2.      Allan Grabowski presented an application for an addition to the existing residence at 21251 Highland Road, Lot 22, Block U.  The addition will include 1639 sq. ft., a 1488 sq. ft. garage, a 147 sq. ft. deck, and a porch.  The siding will be cedar and the roof will be green composition shingles.  The plan was approved and a fee of $75 was paid by check number 160.

3.      Eric Roof presented an application to construct a residence at 21310 Sazarac Road, Lot 11, Block A.  The residence will be 1478 sq. ft. with a natural stone exterior, green trim, and a brown metal roof.  The plan was approved and a fee of $500 was paid by check number 133.

4.      William Evans reappeared regarding the detached garage conversion at 2061 Cartwright Road, Lots 285 and 286, Block M.  He had applied for a special use permit from Storey County to convert the garage to a separate dwelling unit.  Apparently the permit was granted pending a letter from the association saying that it was approved by the VCHPOA.  The committee does not believe that the use is permitted by the restrictions in the Declaration.  A letter was given to Mr. Evans stating that the committee cannot approve the conversion.  Mr. Evans was informed that he could arrange a meeting with the Board of Directors, building and planning officials, and any other interested parties to discuss the proposed conversion.

IV.   Since there was no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:30 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Rita Lumos, Member
