FOR THE FOLKS CALLING IN, THE MEETING ID NUMBER IS NOT VALID, IS WHAT IT IS SAYING.

[00:00:32]

ARE WE GOING TO HAVE TO START OVER?

>> I WILL BROADCAST IT OUT.

THAT WAY FOLKS CAN HAVE IT.

THE NUMBER I'M TRYING IS NOT WORKING.

>> I DON'T THINK THAT IS THE ISSUE.

WHAT WILLIAM IS SAYING IS THE ISSUE IS WITH THE LIVE STREAMING.

>> I THINK WILLIAM IS ADDRESSING THE FACT THAT THE RECORDING IS NOT OCCURRING.

I THINK KENNY IS ADDRESSING THAT THE PEOPLE CALLING IN ARE UNABLE TO USE THE NUMBERS THAT YOU HAVE.

I THINK IT'S NOT NECESSARILY THE NUMBERS, BUT THE ID.

SO LET ME MAKE SURE I HAVE THE RIGHT INVITE.

NESS, THE INVITE THAT YOU SENT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS COMMITTEE, MAY 20, 2020, HAS A PHONE NUMBER THAT STARTS WITH 253â€'215â€'8782.

IF SOMEONE WOULD LIKE TO TRY AND CALL IN WITH THAT NUMBER.

I'VE GOT ANOTHER NUMBER, 301â€'715 >> HOLD ON.

>> YEAH.

>> OKAY.

GO AHEAD WITH THE NUMBER.

>> THE FIRST NUMBER I HAVE IS 253â€'215â€'8782.

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A SECOND NUMBER.

>> HOLD ON.

>> SORRY.

>> WHAT IS THE MEETING ID?

>> ID I HAVE IS 830â€'38926600.

NESS, DO YOU SEE IF THAT IS WHAT IS ON THE POSTING?

>> SO I AM THINKING MAYBE THE POSTING DOESN'T HAVE THE NUMBER OR THE WEBINAR ID CORRECT.

I DON'T HAVE THE POSTING AGENDA BECAUSE I CURRENTLY â€'â€' LET ME STOP SHARING MY SCREEN FOR A MOMENT.

WERE YOU ABLE TO PULL UP THE POSTING AGENDA TO SEE IF THE WEB ID AND PHONE NUMBERS ARE THE SAME AS THE INVITE? THE WRONG WEBINAR ID WAS POSTED.

>> COULD YOU SEND THAT INFORMATION ON TEAMS AND THEN I'LL SEND IT OUT, PLEASE?

>> YES.

I ALSO AM WONDERING IF â€'â€' FOR THE PURPOSES OF THE PUBLIC.

HOLD ON ONE SECOND.

LET ME TRY SOMETHING OUT HERE.

TRYING TO GIVE THE BEST RESULTS TO OUR PUBLIC.

[00:05:05]

THE CORRECT WEB ID IS 83038926600.

AND IF THEY GET THAT CORRECT, THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO DIAL IN.

>> I JUST FORWARDED IT TO YOU.

I NOW SHOW THAT WE HAVE EIGHT ATTENDEES.

I'M GOING TO LEAVE THIS RIGHT HERE FOR NOW.

I DO HAVE ONE ATTENDEE.

I WILL LET HIM TALK UNLESS YOU HAVE ITEMS TO DISCUSS ABOUT THE CHURCH BEFORE I ENGAGE THE CALLER.

[Item IX B]

SIR, FOR THE WOODLANDS COMMUNITY CHURCH.

>> NO.

YOU JUST UNMUTED ME.

I'M SUZANNE, I'M THE NUMBER TWO, UNDER RESIDENTIAL.

>> OKAY.

WE WILL GO AHEAD AND CALL UPON YOU WHEN YOUR ITEM IS PRESENT.

I SAW YOU RAISE YOUR HAND.

I THOUGHT YOU WERE FOR THE WOODLANDS COMMUNITY CHURCH.

>> IT'S OKAY.

>> KIM, IT MIGHT BE BEFORE YOU MOVE ON TO SEE IF ANYONE ON THE CALL WAS WITH ANY OF THE SUMMARY ITEMS WE'VE GONE THROUGH â€'â€' I DON'T THINK YOU NEED TO START THE MEETING OVER.

>> I'LL TELL YOU WHAT WE'LL DO THEN.

KIM, THERE IS SOMEBODY ON THE LINE FOR THE WOODLANDS COMMUNITY CHURCH, IS THAT RIGHT?

>> I DON'T BELIEVE SO.

WHEN I HAD MENTIONED THAT, I ASKED IF ANYONE WHO WAS ON THE LINE FOR WOODLANDS COMMUNITY CHURCH COULD HIT STAR NINE.

THE LADY WHO HIT STAR NINE WAS THE ONE WHO SAID SHE WAS HERE FOR ITEM TWO.

I'LL ASK AGAIN, OF ALL OF THE CALLERS THAT ARE CURRENTLY IN THE CUE, IF ONE OF YOU IS PRESENT FOR WOODLANDS COMMUNITY CHURCH, IF YOU COULD HIT STAR NINE, I DO HAVE ONE INDIVIDUAL.

LET ME GO AHEAD AND ENGAGE THEM ON THE CALL.

SIR, ARE YOU WITH THE WOODLANDS COMMUNITY CHURCH?

>> NO, MA'AM.

>> OKAY.

I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND LOWER YOUR HAND ON THE STAR 9 AND WE WILL ADDRESS YOU AFTER THIS ITEM WHEN YOUR ITEM IS THERE.

WHAT ITEM ARE YOU PRESENT FOR?

>> ITEM 7, THE COLOR CHANGE ON BLUFF CREEK PLACE.

>> OKAY.

I WILL MAKE NOTE OF THAT.

>> KIM, WHAT I WOULD DO, TO AVOID HAVING TO START THE MEETING OVER AGAIN, IS IF

[00:10:06]

YOU AND NESS CAN READ THROUGH THE ADDRESSES ON THE SUMMARY LIST, AND JUST SAY IF ANYONE IS ON THOSE SUMMARY ITEMS TO GO AHEAD AND RAISE THEIR HANDS.

AND THEN WE CAN READDRESS THOSE IF THEY NEED TO BE ADDRESSED AND WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO MOVE ON.

>> OKAY.

>> CERTAINLY.

>> LET'S CLOSE OUT THIS ITEM ON THE WOODLANDS CHURCH.

>> OKAY.

>> OKAY.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS, OR ANYBODY HAVE A MOTION ON THIS?

>> RECOMMENDED MOTION.

>> I THINK THERE WERE TWO RECOMMENDED MOTIONS, WASN'T THERE?

>> FIRST WAS TO DENY, SECOND WAS TO APPROVE.

>> THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM WAS I REALLY WAS UNSURE WITH THE NAME OF THE CHURCH AS WELL AS THE CHURCH MINISTRY.

YOU'VE HAD SOME HISTORY WITH THIS IN THE PAST.

NEW HOPE CHURCH WAS ONE, WHERE YOU HAD REVIEWED THIS.

AND THEY HAD BOTH NEW HOPE CHURCH IN ENGLISH AS WELL AS A PROPOSAL IN I WANT TO SAY MANDARIN.

THAT WAS NOT ALLOWED.

BUT LATER ON YOU DID ADVISE THEM TO CONSIDER A SIGN THAT WOULD BE ON THE INTERIOR.

THIS ONE IS PROPOSING TO HAVE BOTH THE WOODLANDS COMMUNITY CHURCH AND CHRISTIANO, THE WOODLANDS.

THAT IS THE PROPOSAL.

YOUR FIRST RECOMMENDATION WOULD REQUIRE THAT ADDITIONAL CHURCH MINISTRY BE REMOVED FROM THE SIGN.

THE SECOND, THEY DO HAVE A DBA FOR COMMUNIDAD CHURCH AND THEY WANT TO HAVE BOTH OF THEM, AS THEY FEEL THEY HAVE A LARGE GATHERING AND WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME THEM BY SHOWING IT ON THEIR SIGNAGE.

THE MOTION IS BOTH TO MOVE TO DENY AND THEN APPROVE UNDER THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS.

>> TWO OPTIONS, ONE WOULD BE REVISE AND RESUBMIT, AND THE OTHER ONE WOULD BE TO ALLOW WITH BOTH OF THEM AND THEN THE REST ARE A LOT OF YOUR STANDARD CONDITIONS IN REGARDS TO THE COMMERCIAL PLANNING AND DESIGN STANDARDS, IN REGARDS TO FINISHING BOTH SIDES OF THE MONUMENT SIGN, SIGN BASE NOT TO EXCEED 18Â INCHES FROM GRADE.

THE EXISTING SECONDARY BUILDING SIGN SHOULD BE REMOVED.

ANY GHOSTING FROM THE REMOVAL OF THAT ONE SIGN WOULD NEED TO BE REPAIRED.

>> I HAVE NO ISSUE WITH BOTH SIGNS.

PARTICULARLY IF THEY'RE BOTH REGISTERED.

>> OKAY.

SO ROBERT, WOULD YOUR RECOMMENDATION BE OPTION TWO TO APPROVE ON THE CONDITIONS REPRESENTED?

>> ROBERT, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

>> OPTION NUMBER TWO.

IS THERE A SECOND?

>> I WOULD SECOND.

BOB ADAMS.

>> ALL THOSE IN FAVOR.

>> AYE.

RECOMMENDED MOTIONS WHICH WERE PROVIDED TO THE INDIVIDUALS PRIOR TO THE

[Items IX C & IX D]

MEETING ARE THE RECOMMENDED MOTIONS THAT THE COMMITTEE ACTED ON, WITH THE INCLUSION ON ITEM D FOR THE DUMPSTER ENCLOSURE TO IDENTIFY THAT THE CMU ENCLOSURE MUST BE A SPLIT FACE CMU OR CONSISTENT WITH THE ACTIONS THAT WE HAVE HAD FOR THE OTHER

[00:15:06]

DUMPSTER ENCLOSURES AND THOSE CRITERIA.

IF ANYONE IS PRESENT FOR SPECIFICALLY 2001 TIMBERLOCK PLACE OR 9425 PINE CROFT DRIVE, THOSE ARE GAVI TIMBERLOCK LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY, IF YOU COULD HIT STAR 9 ON YOUR PHONE.

ONLY IF YOU ARE FOR ITEMS C OR D.

I DO NOT SHOW ANY ATTENDEES FOR THE COMMERCIAL SUMMARY ITEMS.

>> OKAY.

[Item X 2]

LET'S GO THROUGH RESIDENTIAL SUMMARY ITEMS.

>> FOR THE FIRST ITEM I HAVE IS NUMBER 2, WHICH IS 6 COURTLAND GREEN STREET.

I BELIEVE THE CALLER WITH THE PHONE NUMBER ENDING IN 2526 IS CALLING ABOUT THAT ADDRESS.

THAT IS MS. MAYOR, I BELIEVE.

>> IS THIS A HOMEOWNER?

>> SHE IS THE HOMEOWNER.

>> OKAY.

>> THEY HAVE THE ADDRESS WRONG, BUT THE NUMBER IS CORRECT.

THE ADDRESS IS 7 BLUFF CREEK PLACE.

THAT IS MY ADDRESS.

>> OKAY.

HOLD ON A MINUTE.

MS. MAHER, IS THIS YOU?

>> YES.

I'M ON 6 COURTLAND GREEN.

>> OKAY.

THE MOTION WAS TO CONDITIONALLY APPROVE STANDARD CONDITIONS PASSED ALL INSPECTIONS, ADDITIONALLY, THE OWNER MUST ENSURE THAT THE PLACEMENT OF THE IMPROVEMENT DOES NOT HALT OR MATERIALLY IMPEDE DRAINAGE FLOWING OFF OF A NEIGHBORING TRACT, DOES NOT REDIRECT THE FLOW OR SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF WATER FLOWING ON TO A NEIGHBORING TRACT.

ENFORCEMENT OF THIS REQUIREMENT IS BY AN AFFECTED PROPERTY OWNER.

STAFF IS TO REVIEW UPON COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT TO DETERMINE IF EVER GREEN SCREEN IS NEEDED TO THE REAR OF THE PROJECT.

DO YOU AGREE WITH THOSE CONDITIONS?

>> ABSOLUTELY.

YES.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THAT WAS THE MOTION AND IT WAS ALREADY ACTED ON.

>> I APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYBODY.

>> THANK YOU.

YOU CAN HANG UP NOW.

>> THANK YOU.

>> ITEM NUMBER 3 IS 126 ZEPHYR BEND PLACE.

IS ANYBODY HERE FOR 126? I DO NOT SEE A HAND UP FOR THAT.

AND THEN WE HAVE 6 AVENSWOOD, IN THE VILLAGE OF RIDGE.

AND THE LAST ITEM ON SUMMARY IS 10 AVENSWOOD.

ANYBODY CALLING IN FOR THAT? NO.

THOSE ARE ALL OF THE RESIDENTIAL SUMMARY ITEMS.

>> OKAY.

>> IS ANYBODY IN THE QUEUE FOR PUBLIC COMMENT AT ALL? OR IS EVERYBODY ONLINE FOR A SPECIFIC ITEM?

>> THERE ARE TWO PEOPLE â€'â€' >> TWO HANDS RAISED.

>> WALT, THAT IS ALL OF THE ONES THAT WE HAD WITH OUR RAISED HAND.

>> WE'RE ALL CAUGHT UP AND LEGAL AND EVERYTHING.

WE'LL GO BACK TO ITEM NUMBER 9, FINISH UP ON THE COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS.

[Item IX A]

>> I WILL DEFER TO BRETT STRONG TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE INFORMATION ON THAT ITEM.

>> THANK YOU, KIM.

MR. CHAIRMAN, AS YOU RECALL AT OUR MEETING LAST GO AROUND, WE HAD BEEN WAITING FOR AN UPDATE.

AND WE RECEIVED AN UPDATE SHORTLY AFTER THE MEETING COMMENCED AND SO I THINK MR. CHAIRMAN, YOU ASKED US TO BE PUT ON THIS AGENDA AND I'LL BE HAPPY TO GIVE YOU THE UPDATE BASED ON THE CURRENT INFORMATION THAT I HAVE BEEN PROVIDED.

INNOSPEC, THE TENANT AT THE SUBJECT PROPERTY HAS IDENTIFIED THE CONTRACTOR FOR THE PROJECT AS BEING O'DONNELL SNYDER CONTRACTOR.

THE CONTRACT HAS BEEN LET AND SIGNED.

AND WORK HAS COMMENCED AND IT IS PROJECTED TO BE DONE BY THE FIRST WEEK IN JULY, WHICH IS THE DATE BY WHICH WE DO HAVE THE FINAL APPROVAL SCHEDULED OR FINAL CONSIDERATION OF THIS SCHEDULED BEFORE THE COMMITTEE.

I BELIEVE KIM, THE FIRST MEETING IN JULY, IS IT JULYÂ 1ST? I THINK IT'S JULYÂ 1ST.

SO THAT WILL BE A SCHEDULED REQUIREMENT.

WE ALSO, AS YOU RECALL, HAVE THE FIRST MEETING OF THE MONTH, DESIGNATED AS A TIME FOR AN UPDATE ON THIS TOPIC.

SINCE THE ATTENUASTORS ARE SPECIALLY FABRICATED, INNOSPEC DOES MENTION THAT DUE TO THE COVIDâ€'19 SITUATION, THEY ARE CONCERNED THERE MAY BE SOME DELAY, BUT THEY SAID THEY HOPE THAT WILL NOT BE THE CASE.

THEY'RE CONTINUING TO WORK WITH THAT FABRICATOR AND THEN AS YOU RECALL, WE HAVE A CONSULTING EXPERT WORKING WITH OUR LAW FIRM THAT IS DOING ANALYSIS OF WHAT IS

[00:26:10]

GOING ON, AS IT'S GOING THERE.

THEY HAVE MENTIONED THAT THEY WILL RESUME INSIDE INSPECTIONS BECAUSE THEY'VE STOPPED DOING INSIDE INSPECTIONS BECAUSE OF THE COVIDâ€'19 SITUATION IN THE FIRST WEEK IN JUNE, SO OUR HOPE IS THAT WE WILL HAVE THAT PERSON OUT THERE IN THE FIRST PART OF JUNE TO LOOK AT THE PROGRESS.

THAT IS THE REPORT, MR. CHAIRMAN.

I KNOW WE HAVE CALLERS.

THE COMMITTEE CAN DISCUSS THIS AND OPEN IT UP TO CALLERS, HOWEVER YOU WOULD LIKE TO PROCEED.

>> DOES ANYBODY ON THE COMMITTEE HAVE ANYTHING? I ACTUALLY DROVE BY THERE THE OTHER DAY.

IT STILL LOOKS THE SAME.

THEY HAVEN'T STARTED ANYTHING.

>> DOES ANYBODY ON THE COMMITTEE HAVE ANYTHING?

>> APPRECIATE THE REPORT UPDATE BY BRETT.

>> THANK YOU, BRETT.

WE HAVE A COUPLE OF CALLERS, SO WHY DON'T YOU LET THEM CHIME IN.

IF YOU'RE CALLING FOR THE INNOSPEC ITEM, IF YOU COULD RAISE YOUR HAND BY HITTING STAR 9 ON YOUR PHONE.

>> I APPRECIATE THAT.

IT'S JUST THAT MY UNDERSTANDING IT WAS ONCE THEY COMPLETED THE WORK ON THE ROOF THEY WOULD BE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE COVENANTS.

I WANTED TO POINT OUT THAT I THINK, YOU VERY WELL COULD BE RIGHT.

BUT I'M PRETTY SURE THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THERE MIGHT BE SOME ADDITIONAL SOUND ABATEMENT THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.

>> LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE WORK IS FINISHED.

>> OKAY.

[00:30:01]

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU.

ANYBODY ELSE? I CAN'T HEAR YOU.

I HAVE ONE MORE INDIVIDUAL THAT RAISED THEIR HAND.

>> CALLER ENDING IN 4619, ARE YOU HERE TO SPEAK TO THE COMMITTEE IN REGARDS TO THE INNOSPEC ITEM?

>> THE CALLER WHOSE PHONE NUMBER ENDS IN 4619.

>> CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

>> YES.

JUST TO FOLLOW UP ON CHRIS'S QUESTION, IS THE BOARD PLANNING TO FOLLOW UP WITH THE STUDY AFTER THE WORK IS COMPLETE TO DETERMINE WHAT THE STATUS IS OF THE NOISE THAT IS COMING FROM INNOSPEC?

>> WELL, I THINK WE HIRED â€'â€' DO YOU WANT TO ANSWER THAT?

>> I WAS GOING TO SAY, WE HAVE A CONSULTING EXPERT THAT IS GOING TO GIVE US SOME INPUT WITH REGARD TO THE YOU KNOW, CURRENT AND BEFORE AND AFTER STATE AND THEN I THINK WALT SAID VERY APLY, WE'LL ASSESS IT AT THE POINT AT WHICH THE WORK IS COMPLETE AND DETERMINE AT THAT POINT WHETHER THE COVENANTS ARE BEING VIOLATED.

SO THERE IS GOING TO BE ADDITIONAL ANALYSIS.

>> OKAY.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

>> DO YOU ANTICIPATE THAT WILL TAKE THE FORM OF A REPORT OR WILL IT BE A THUMB'S UP, THUMB'S DOWN, WHAT DEGREE OF GRANULARITY DO YOU EXPECT FROM THE EXPERT?

>> WHAT I WOULD SAY ON THAT FRONT IS THAT YOU KNOW, THE COMMITTEE ISN'T NECESSARILY EVEN REQUIRED TO HIRE AN EXPERT.

WHAT THEY'RE TRYING TO DO IS JUST DETERMINE WHAT THE RESULT IS OF THE WORK BEING PERFORMED.

SO WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE GRANULARITY WILL BE.

BASICALLY THE GUIDANCE THAT WILL BE GIVEN IS GIVE US A REPORT AS TO THE COMPLIANCE OF THIS SITUATION WITH THE COVENANTS.

SO WE'LL SEE WHAT THE CONSULTANT COMES BACK WITH.

>> THANK YOU FOR THE DETAILS.

AND THANK YOU ALL FOR PAYING SUCH CLOSE ATTENTION TO THIS.

WE APPRECIATE IT.

>> THANK YOU.

>> ANYBODY ELSE ON INNOSPEC?

>> I JUST HAVE ONE MORE THAT POPPED â€'â€' NO I DON'T.

>> OKAY.

DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER COMMENTS ABOUT INNOSPEC?

>> NO, SIR.

>> NO, SIR.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE IT.

I'M ASSUMING WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE THIS ON THE AGENDA FOR THE NEXT MEETING.

>> YEAH.

IT WILL BE SCHEDULED TO BE ON THE FIRST MEETING IN JUNE.

SO WE HAVE A SCHEDULED AGENDA ITEM FOR THAT DATE.

AND WE'LL GIVE AN UPDATE AGAIN AT THAT TIME.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU.

>> IS THERE ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL ITEMS?

>> THAT WAS THE CONCLUSION OF THE COMMERCIAL ITEMS.

>> ALL RIGHT.

MOVE DOWN TO RESIDENTIAL.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> PRESENT FOR ITEM NUMBER â€'â€' DO WE HAVE ANYONE PRESENT FOR ITEM NUMBER 1? I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD AND GO BACK TO MY SCREEN, SO THAT I CAN DO ITEM NUMBER ONE.

[Item X 1]

IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE SOMEONE WITH THEIR HAND RAISED FOR THAT ITEM.

>> OKAY.

THE FIRST ITEM FOR WHICH I SHOW SOMEONE PRESENT IS THE VARIANCE REQUEST FOR THE CONCEPTUALLY PROPOSED ROOM ADDITION THAT WOULD EXCEED THE MAXIMUM LIVING AREA AND MAXIMUM HARD SURFACE AREA ALLOWED.

29 AUTUMN WOOD WAY.

THE LOT THAT IS SEEN HERE, OR THE AERIAL VIEW AS YOU SEE OFF OF GROGAN'S MILL ROAD.

THIS IS THE VIEW OF THE HOMEOWNER'S SURVEY.

WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO IS PROPOSE ADDITIONAL LIVING AREA AND HARD SURFACE IN THE FRONT, KIND OF WRAPPING AROUND THE FRONT DOOR AND ADJACENT TO THE GARAGE, TO ALLOW FOR ADDITIONAL LIVING SPACE THAT WOULD HELP ACCOMMODATE THE HOMEOWNER

[00:35:02]

AND THE NEEDS OF HER ELDERLY MOTHER, AS DESCRIBED IN HER VARIANCE REQUEST.

THIS IS THE VIEW OF THE HOME AS IT SITS WITH THE ADJACENT PROPERTIES ON 31 AND 27 AUTUMN WOOD WAY.

CONSISTENT WITH THE DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS COMMITTEE PROCESS IN REGARDS TO NOTIFYING NEIGHBORS, THE FOLLOWING INDIVIDUALS RECEIVED INFORMATION FROM THE NEIGHBOR COMMUNICATION FORM FOR THIS ITEM COMING FORWARD TO THE COMMITTEE.

WE DID RECEIVE ONE RESPONSE TWO DOORS DOWN, WHICH IS REPRESENTED HERE ON YOUR MAP AND THAT IS ONE PERSON WHO WAS IN FAVOR OF THE ADDITION AS IT WAS PRESENTED.

THIS IS THE OWNER'S REQUEST.

THIS IS A CONCEPT AND THE REASON WHY IT'S COMING FORWARD AS A CONCEPT IS BECAUSE THE INDIVIDUAL NOTED THAT THE HOUSE WAS BUILT IN '83 AND IT IS IN NEED OF A LOT OF UPDATING, WHICH THE OWNER IS READY TO MOVE FORWARD WITH DOING.

AND AS THEY'RE LOOKING TO MAKE THE NECESSARY UPDATES ON THE PROPERTY, THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO ADD SQUARE FOOTAGE THAT WOULD HELP ACCOMMODATE AN ELDERLY MOTHER AND HER BELONGINGS, BEFORE THEY ENGAGE IN THE COST OF ARCHITECTURAL PLANS, MODIFICATIONS TO THE HOME AND SUBMITTING THE APPLICATION FOR THE INCREASED LIVING AREA AND HARD SURFACE, THEY WANTED TO COME TO THE DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS COMMITTEE FIRST, CONCEPTUALLY TO IDENTIFY WHETHER OR NOT THAT IS SOMETHING THAT THE COMMITTEE WOULD CONSIDER.

THE LOT SIZE IS A LITTLE LESS THAN 7,000 SQUARE FEET, WITH A PERMITTED HARD SURFACE AT 45Â PERCENT.

THE HOUSE CURRENTLY SITS A LITTLE OVER WITH THE EXISTING HARD SURFACE AT 47, THE NEW PROPOSAL IS AN ADDITIONAL FOUR PERCENT, BRINGING IT TO A TOTAL OF 51.2Â PERCENT OVER HARD SURFACE, WHICH WOULD MAKE IT AN ADDITIONAL HARD SURFACE OF 6.2 OVER.

THE OWNER DID PROVIDE SOME ELEVATION DRAWINGS, THESE ARE THE ONLY DRAWINGS THAT WE RECEIVED FROM THE HOMEOWNER TO TRY AND SHOW YOU THE LEFT SIDE AND RIGHT SIDE ELEVATIONS, BUT THEY DID IDENTIFY THAT PRIMARILY THIS IS JUST THE CONCEPT TO REVIEW WHAT YOU WOULD ALLOW FOR HARD SURFACE AND LIVING AREA BEFORE SHE MOVES FORWARD WITH PLANS TO MAKE THE DESIGN.

THIS IS THE VIEW OF THE FRONT OF THE HOME, LOOKING AT THE FRONT PROPERTY, IT WOULD BE THE AREA HERE TO THE RIGHT HAND SIDE, THAT THE PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS WOULD BE ADDED.

HERE IS A MORE CLOSEâ€'UP VIEW OF THAT SECTION, WHICH IS THE AREA REPRESENTED HERE.

THIS IS ANOTHER VIEW SHOWING YOU KIND OF A CLOSEâ€'UP OF WHERE THAT FRONT DOOR IS, THE AREA WHERE THE PROPOSAL WOULD BE FOR THE ADDITION.

A LITTLE BIT MORE OF A CLOSEâ€'UP VIEW.

AS THE OWNER MENTIONED, THERE IS THE REPAIRS AND UPGRADES THAT ARE NEEDED SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT SHE WOULD LIKE TO CONSIDER AT THE SAME TIME AS HER UPGRADES.

THIS IS THE VIEW OF THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY.

WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE OVERALL PROPERTY, THERE IS LIMITED SPACE TO BUILD FORWARD BECAUSE OF THE BUILDING SETBACK LINES OR IN THE REAR, BECAUSE OF THE PROXIMITY TO THE EASEMENT.

CURRENTLY THE HOUSE SITS RIGHT ON THE CORNER OF THE EASEMENT HERE.

AND THEN YOU HAVE THE EASEMENT SPACE IN THE BACK AS WELL AS IN THE FRONT.

SO THEY WERE LOOKING TO TRY AND ADD SPACE HERE THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR ADDITIONAL SPACE FOR THE OWNER FOR THE LIVING AREA.

THIS IS TO GIVE YOU THE OVERALL VIEW OF THE SURVEY ITSELF.

THE INITIAL LAND USE DESIGNATION IS SET AT 3500.

THEIR HOUSE IS CURRENTLY 2,454 SQUARE FEET.

PROPOSED ADDITIONAL LIVING AREA WOULD BE 1,046 SQUARE FEET.

BRINGING THEM RIGHT UP TO THE 3500 MARK OF THE LAND USE DESIGNATION.

IT DOES EXCEED HARD SURFACE BASED ON THE SKETCH THAT WAS PROVIDED BUT THE LIVING AREA IS OVER THE CRITERIA UNDER THE LAND USE AND THE HARD SURFACE IS 6.2Â PERCENT OVER THE MAXIMUM ALLOWED.

AND IF THIS IS ACCURATE, I DO HAVE ONE CALLER WHO IS PRESENT FOR THIS ITEM.

WE DID HAVE ONE INDIVIDUAL WHO NOTED THAT THEY WERE IN FAVOR OF THIS ITEM AND THAT IS THE INDIVIDUAL TWO DOORS DOWN.

>> IT IS TRUE, THE HOUSE NEEDS A LOT, I MEAN, IT HAS ROOF LEAKS, IT NEEDS NEW

[00:40:39]

SIDING, WINDOWS, IT NEEDS A LOT OF THINGS.

I MAY AS WELL, IN MY INITIAL REMODEL, I WOULD LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND GET EVERYTHING DONE, INSTEAD OF JUST DOING IT PIECE BY PIECE.

BUT IN ORDER TO GET TO THAT POINT, I WOULD LIKE TO ADD A LITTLE ADDITIONAL SQUARE FOOTAGE IN THE FRONT.

SO ANYWAY, THAT IS WHERE I AM.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I GOT APPROVAL BEFORE I COULD MOVE FORWARD.

>> ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

ARE YOU THE OWNER?

>> YES, I AM.

>> AND WHAT IS YOUR TIME FRAME ON DOING THIS WORK?

>> I WOULD LIKE TO GET STARTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE I DID MOVE TO A TEMPORARY HOME BECAUSE THE HOUSE WAS REALLY, IT STARTED TO GET NOT LIVEABLE ANY MORE.

SO I HAD TO MOVE TO TEMPORARY LIVING.

SO I WOULD LIKE TO GET STARTED IMMEDIATELY.

>> DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE HOMEOWNER?

>> NO, SIR.

I THINK THE RECOMMENDED MOTION OUTLINES PRETTY GOOD THE CONDITIONS AND APPROACH GOING FORWARD.

>> WHAT ABOUT A SCHEDULE? YOU'RE NOT REQUIRING THAT ON THE RECOMMENDED MOTION?

>> WELL, THIS IS A CONCEPT.

SO WITH A CONCEPT, WE WOULDN'T PUT A SCHEDULE ON THERE.

BUT WHEN THE APPLICATION IS SUBMITTED, THE TYPE OF ADDITION THAT IS BEING PROPOSED WOULD HAVE TO BE DONE WITHIN 150Â DAYS CURRENTLY.

AND IF THEY NEEDED MORE TIME THAN THAT, THEN WE WOULD REQUIRE A CONSTRUCTION TIME PLAN, CONSTRUCTION PLAN BUT THAT TIMING AND TIME FRAME WOULD BE CONSISTENT WITH THE FINAL SUBMISSION.

CURRENTLY, THE CONCEPT DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING BEYOND THE IDEA OF ADDITIONAL LIVING AREA.

THE OWNER IS AN AWARE OF THE NECESSARY REPAIRS, WHICH IS WHY THEY WANTED TO CONSIDER AT THE TIME WHETHER OR NOT THEY COULD ADD THE SQUARE FOOTAGE SO THAT IT'S DONE ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

>> OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

I THINK THIS IS GOOD, ONE OF THE CONDITIONS AS A RECOMMENDATION IS THAT THEY HAVE TO SUBMIT A COMPREHENSIVE DRAINING PLAN WHEN THEY SUBMIT THE APPLICATION.

>>.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> ANYTHING ELSE?

>> NO.

NOT REALLY.

I AM BACKED UP TO THE GOLF COURSE, SO THERE IS OF COURSE, THERE IS DRAINAGE THERE.

BUT I WOULD BE GLAD TO GET THE PRINTS.

NO PROBLEMS WITH THAT.

>> ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.

>> THANK YOU.

>> I'M SORRY MA'AM, COULD YOU SAY THAT AGAIN? I ACCIDENTALLY MUTED YOU.

>> NO.

IT'S OKAY.

SO I AM APPROVED FOR THIS, CORRECT?

>> WELL, NOT JUST YET.

YOU'RE GETTING CLOSE, THOUGH.

>> OKAY.

>> I WOULD ARTHUR WOULD LIKE THE RECOMMENDED MOTION OUTLINED BY STAFF WITH THE CONDITIONS THAT HAVE BEEN OUTLINED BY STAFF TO STAY WITHIN THE 3500 SQUARE FOOT, THE INITIAL LAND USE DESIGNATION AND HARD SURFACE NOT TO INCREASE BEYOND 50Â PERCENT.

>> OKAY.

>> I'LL SECOND THAT.

>> ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SAY AYE.

>> ARTHUR, AYE.

>> JOHN BROWN, AYE.

>> ANY NAYS? AYES HAVE IT.

>> THAT IS A HAPPY PERSON.

>> THANK YOU.

[00:45:02]

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF I CAN BE HEARD, BUT THANK YOU.

>> YOU WERE HEARD.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

WHAT IS NEXT?

>> THAT IS THE CONCLUSION OF THE ITEMS THAT I HAD FOR NES'S AGENDA.

SO I WILL GO AHEAD AND NES, IF YOU WANT TO TAKE OVER, I WILL STOP SHARING MY SCREEN.

>> THANK YOU, KIM.

>> ALL RIGHT.

WE'RE GOING TO BE UP.

FIRST ITEM IS ITEM NUMBER 6.

I DID NOT HEAR THAT THERE WAS SOMEBODY HERE ON ITEM NUMBER 6, BUT IF YOU ARE

[Item X 6]

CALLING IN FOR 2 ARCHER OAKS, COULD YOU HIT STAR NINE TO RAISE YOUR HAND.

HERE WE GO.

>> ALL RIGHT.

LET ME DO THE PRESENTATION SO I KNOW.

WE'LL UNMUTE YOU AS SOON AS I'M THROUGH.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

2 ARCHER OAKS IS IN THE VILLAGE OF STERLING RIDGE.

THIS WAS AN APPEAL OF NOTICE OF VIOLATION FOR A POSSIBLE HOME BUSINESS AND ALSO MAINTAINING MORE THAN TWO PETS OUTSIDE AT A TIME.

THIS IS THE FRONT OF THE HOME.

AND THIS IS LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE OF THE PROPERTY.

AND YOUR MAP, YOU CAN SEE, IT'S AN INTERIOR LOT SURROUNDED BY OTHER RESIDENTIAL LOTS.

WE RECEIVED THIS AS A COMPLAINT.

AERIAL PHOTO.

YOU CAN SEE THE PARTICULAR LOT IN QUESTION.

THE FOLLOWING PHOTOS WERE ALL SUBMITTED BY AN AFFECTED NEIGHBOR, COMPLAINING ABOUT THE NUMBER OF PETS KEPT OUTSIDE AT A TIME.

THE FOLLOWING PHOTOS ARE BASICALLY CONTINUATION AND YOU SEE APPROXIMATELY 12 TO 13 DOGS OUT AT ONE TIME.

STAFF SENT NOTICES FOR THIS AND THE HOMEOWNER DIRECTLY CALLED US IN REGARD TO IT.

AND SHE WANTED TO SPEAK TO THE DSC IN REGARD TO HER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT SHE COULD DO ON HER PROPERTY AND DID NOT FEEL THAT THIS WAS A VIOLATION.

SHE MAINTAINS THAT SHE SHOWS THE DOGS AND IT'S NOT A BUSINESS.

AND THAT SOMETIMES SHE BREEDS THEM AND THAT IS WHY SHE HAS MANY DOGS AT ONE TIME.

AND WE DID RECEIVE ONE COMPLAINT FROM ONE NEIGHBOR.

AND I BELIEVE THE HOMEOWNER IS ONLINE AT THIS TIME.

>> ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

DOES ANY COMMITTEE MEMBER HAVE ANY COMMENTS?

>> NO, SIR.

>> ALL RIGHT.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND LET >> HELLO, YOU'RE ON WITH THE DSC IN REGARD TO 2 ARCHER OAKS.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THIS IS PAT AND I AM THE OWNER OF 2 ARCHER OAK.

I'VE ACTUALLY LIVED AT THIS ADDRESS FOR OVER 13Â YEARS.

I'VE ACTUALLY LIVED IN THE WOODLANDS FOR OVER 20Â YEARS.

BUT I'VE ALWAYS HAD AT LEAST THREE INSIDE DOGS DURING ALL THAT TIME.

HOWEVER, I DECIDED THAT I DID WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN SHOWING SHELTIES AND AT THE TIME WHEN I BOUGHT THIS PROPERTY, I'VE BEEN AWARE OF THE COVENANTS.

IN FACT, AS A REALTOR, I'VE BEEN ASKED A LOT OF TIMES BY PEOPLE THAT HAVE MULTIPLE PETS WHEN I READ THE COVENANTS, IT SAYS RESIDENTS OF THE WOODLANDS ARE LIMITED IN THE NUMBER OF ANIMALS TO BE KEPT, NO MORE THAN TWO EITHER CATS AND/OR DOGS, MAY BE KEPT OUTSIDE.

MINE ARE NOT OUTSIDE DOGS.

I DO HAVE THEM OUT FOR EXERCISE ONCE IN A WHILE.

BUT PROBABLY IN A DAY'S TIME AT THE MAX WITH ALL DAY LONG, IT WOULD ONLY BE TWO HOURS.

THE PICTURES YOU'RE SEEING, I HAVE TO ADMIT IT'S MORE DOGS THAN I NORMALLY CARRY, BECAUSE I HAD CLIENTS THAT HAD ME HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR DOGS WHILE THEY MADE A TRIP.

I AT THIS TIME HAVE FIVE DOGS OF MY OWN.

[00:50:03]

I DO HAVE SOMEONE STAYING WITH ME THAT HAS TWO ADDITIONAL.

BUT I NEED TO TELL YOU AT TIMES I DO HAVE MORE DOGS, DEPENDING ON HOW MANY I'M SHOWING.

IN THIS CASE, YOU PROBABLY ARE SEEING THE MAX.

IT'S JUST INTERESTING TO ME THAT I'VE LIVED HERE THIS LONG AND JUST NOW AND HAVING SOMEBODY THAT IS COMPLAINING THAT THEY HAVE TALKED TO ME, OBVIOUSLY, I WOULD DO ANYTHING I COULD TO KEEP NEIGHBORS HAPPY.

I HAPPEN TO LOVE THE WOODLANDS.

I'VE SHOWN IT FOR MANY MANY YEARS BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN IT.

BUT THAT TAKES CARE OF THAT.

AND THEN IT WAS ALSO NOTED THAT I NEEDED TO MAKE MYSELF A BUSINESS AS A BREEDER.

AND I'M NOT A BREEDER.

DO I BREED? YES.

I HAD A LITTER LAST YEAR.

I HAD A LITTER THIS YEAR.

BUT IT'S BASICALLY TO TRY TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF SHELTIES.

IF I DO BREED MY GIRLS, MANY TIMES I HAVE TO GO INTO CANADA AND ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES AND HAVE CHILLED SEMEN BROUGHT IN TO DO A GOOD BREEDING.

I DON'T FEEL LIKE THAT IS A BUSINESS.

IT'S AN EXPENSIVE HOBBY IS WHAT IT IS.

I HOPE I'VE COVERED EVERYTHING THAT â€'â€' I MEAN, I'M GOING TO DO WHAT I WANT TO DO.

BUT I WANT TO LIVE IN THE WOODLANDS.

I DON'T WANT THIS TO BECOME A PROBLEM FOR ME.

I SHOW HOUSES HERE.

NOW I'M SHOWING SHELTIES.

>> WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THESE DOGS AFTER YOU BREED THEM? DO YOU SELL THEM OR DO YOU GIVE THEM AWAY?

>> IT DEPENDS ON WHAT WE HAVE.

I MEAN, THERE'S LOTS OF BREEDINGS I DO AND SPEND MAYBE 2 TO $4,000 AND DON'T EVEN HAVE A PUPPY TO SHOW.

WHEN WE SHOW, WHEN WE BREED LIKE THAT, I DO HAVE PUPPIES, I EVALUATE THEM AT ABOUT 10 OR 12Â WEEKS.

IF THEY'RE SHOW DOGS THAT I WANT TO KEEP, OBVIOUSLY I WOULD KEEP.

I DO HAVE SHOW PEOPLE THAT CONTACT ME WANTING A SHOW PUPPY, BECAUSE I'VE GOT A HIGH CALIBER BREED.

THAT I WORKED ON.

AND THEN YES, IF THEY DON'T CREATE THE STANDARD WE WOULD WANT TO PUT IN A CONFIRMATION, I'LL SELL THEM TO PERFORMANCE HOMES OR TO A PET PERSON.

>> BUT YOU DO SELL THEM?

>> WELL, YEAH.

BUT I DON'T MAKE ANY MONEY, BELIEVE ME.

I NEVER WOULD MAKE WHAT I WOULD MAKE IN A BREEDING, BY SELLING A PUPPY TO SOMEONE.

I SELL THEM BECAUSE I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IT IS A RESPONSIBLE PERSON THAT WOULD BUY THEM.

>> OKAY.

IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN, WE'VE RULED BEFORE WHERE PEOPLE HAVE HAD MORE THAN TWO DOGS OUT AT ONE TIME, CORRECT?

>> THAT'S CORRECT.

THE STANDARDS SAY NO MORE THAN TWO CUSTOMARY HOUSEHOLD PETS MAY BE PLACED OR KEPT OUTSIDE OF THE HOME.

>> PLACED OR KEPT.

>> IF I DECIDED TO LET FOUR OF THEM OUTSIDE FOR AN HOUR, IT'S BASICALLY IN VIOLATIONS?

>> CORRECT.

>> THAT IS NOT WHAT THE COVENANTS SAY.

EXCUSE ME, BUT IT'S NOT THE WAY OUR COVENANTS READ.

I MEAN, I'VE HAD TO RELY ON THESE BOTH AS A REALTOR AND AS A SHOW PERSON, SHOWING DOGS.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS?

>> IF YOU TAKE THIS PICTURE AS THE MOST EXTREME EXAMPLE, IT'S CLEAR THAT THERE IS A VIOLATION, BECAUSE THERE IS MORE THAN TWO DOGS OUTSIDE IN THE YARD.

THIS MAY APPEAR TO BE A HOBBY, BUT IT ALSO SOUNDS LIKE IT'S A BUSINESS.

>> WELL, IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY MONEY.

YOU CAN ASK MY CPA.

I HAVE TO SHOW HOUSES TO SHOW DOGS.

BECAUSE OF THE EXPENSE.

IF THEY ARE OUT SHOWING, I ALSO HAVE TO UTILIZE A HANDLER BECAUSE OF THE TRAVELLING EXPENSES, ET CETERA.

AND I DO UNDERSTAND THIS LOOKS LIKE A LARGE NUMBER OF DOGS.

MORE THAN I NORMALLY HAVE.

BUT BELIEVE ME, I DID NOT KNOW I WAS GOING AGAINST WHEN I READ WHAT THE COVENANTS SAYS, THEY'RE NOT OUTSIDE DOGS, THEY EAT, SLEEP AND LIVE INSIDE MY HOME, EXCEPT WHEN THEY GO, I LET THEM OUT TO POTTY, BASICALLY.

>> WHAT IS THE AVERAGE PRICE ON THESE DOGS?

[00:55:03]

$2,500?

>> PARDON? IF I WERE TO â€'â€' YEAH.

IF I WERE TO SELL A PUPPY, IT WOULD BE 2,000.

THE ONES YOU'RE SEEING IN THAT YARD ARE MUCH MORE VALUABLE THAN THAT.

>> I GUESS I WOULD HAVE TO LOOK AT IT THIS WAY, THEN, OBVIOUSLY IF YOU'RE SELLING FIVE DOGS OUT OF A LITTER, THAT IS TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS, I'M SURE YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR TAXES ON THAT.

AND IF YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING WITH TAXES, TO ME CONSTITUTES THAT YOU HAVE A BUSINESS.

>> ACTUALLY, NO.

BECAUSE I SPEND SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER MAKE, IT WOULD NEVER BE PROFITABLE.

FIRST OFF, IT WOULD BE VERY RARE TO HAVE A FIVE PUPPY LITTER WITH SHELTIES.

THE LITTER I JUST HAD IS FOUR.

BUT THE ONE I HAD LAST YEAR, I HAD TWO.

SO IT'S RARE THAT WE GET MORE THAN THAT.

THAT IS KIND OF THE NORMAL NUMBER.

>> I DON'T THINK IT'S OUR STANDARDS THIS APPEARS BY EVERY CONCEIVABLE MANNER TO BE A HOME BUSINESS.

AND REALLY THE HOME BUSINESS SHOULD BE APPLIED FOR.

OUR STANDARDS DON'T TALK ABOUT WHETHER A HOME BUSINESS MAKES MONEY OR DOESN'T MAKE MONEY.

THERE IS NO PROFIT AND LOSS STATEMENT THAT YOU SUBMIT WITH THE HOME BUSINESS.

IT SURE APPEARS TO ME THAT THIS IS A HOME BUSINESS.

ALTHOUGH IT MAY BE A HOBBY AT THE SAME TIME.

>> SO IF I ONLY HAVE ONE LITTER A YEAR, THAT IS CONSIDERED TO BE A BREEDER?

>> STILL A BUSINESS.

>> STILL A BUSINESS.

IT'S NO DIFFERENT THAN IF YOU'RE AN ACCOUNTANT AND DOES THREE CLIENTS A YEAR OR AN ENGINEER DOING WORK ON THE SIDE AND MAYBE DO ONE OR TWO PROJECTS A YEAR.

YOU STILL HAVE TO APPLY FOR A HOME BUSINESS.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> DOES ANYBODY IN THE COMMITTEE HAVE ANY OTHER COMMENTS?

>> NO, SIR.

>> NO, SIR.

>> I'LL MAKE THE MOTION THAT I WOULD CONSIDER THIS BEING A HOME BUSINESS AND THE OWNER NEEDS TO SUBMIT AN APPLICATION FOR A HOME BUSINESS FOR EVALUATION.

>> I WOULD SECOND THAT.

>> ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE.

>> ARTHUR, AYE.

>> AYE.

>> ANY OPPOSED? OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

QUESTION, WHAT ABOUT THE STAFF HAS INDICATED THAT THERE IS A VIOLATION ON HAVING THE TWO DOGS OUTSIDE.

IS THAT, WE TAKE THAT SEPARATE OR WE WAIT FOR THE SUBMISSION FOR THE HOME BUSINESS?

>> WELL, YOU KNOW, IT'S OBVIOUS THAT OUR INTERPRETATION OF TWO DOGS IS WHAT, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T HAVE MORE THAN NOT TWO DOGS BOARDED OUTSIDE, BUT YOU CAN'T HAVE MORE THAN TWO ANIMALS OUTSIDE.

SO THAT IS A VIOLATION THAT SHE'S BEEN PUT ON NOTICE ABOUT THAT.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU.

>> YEAH.

MR. CHAIRMAN, I ACTUALLY HAVE THREE DOGS AND YES, IT IS REALLY A PAIN TO HAVE TO DO THAT, BUT I HAVE TO KEEP ONE IN AND TWO OUT UNTIL THEY BOTH COME IN AND THEN I LET THE ONE DOG OUT.

I MEAN, IT'S A PAIN BUT THAT IS WHAT YOU GOT TO DO.

>> IT IS.

I ACTUALLY HAVE A NEIGHBOR ACROSS THE STREET WHO HAS DOGS AND THEY HAVE EVEN ARRANGED A CERTAIN TIME FRAME THAT ODD, EVEN HOURS THAT YOU LET YOUR DOG OUT.

SO THEY DON'T STAND THERE AND START BARKING AT ONE ANOTHER FOR AN HOUR.

THE BEST WAY WE'VE INTERPRETED STANDARDS.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> I'M SORRY, GO AHEAD.

>> I JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY THEN, IF I LET TWO DOGS OUT AT A TIME, I AM OKAY, IS THAT CORRECT?

>> YES, YOU CAN'T HAVE MORE THAN TWO DOGS OUT AT ONE TIME.

>> OKAY.

CAN I RECOMMEND THEN THAT IN THE COVENANTS, WHERE IT SAYS PETS THAT OUGHT TO BE CLARIFIED.

BECAUSE I HAVE TO TELL YOU AS A REALTOR, I'VE EVEN TOLD PEOPLE THEY WERE OKAY.

SO I THINK IT NEEDS TO BE A LITTLE MORE CLARIFIED IN OUR COVENANTS.

>> YES.

[01:00:01]

THE COVENANTS ARE DIFFICULT TO CHANGE.

AND THAT IS WHY IT'S CLARIFIED IN OUR RESIDENTIAL STANDARDS.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENT.

ALL RIGHT.

WHAT IS NEXT? NEXT ITEM ON OUR AGENDA IS ITEM NUMBER 7, WHICH IS 10 BLUFF CREEK PLACE, THIS IS

[Item X 7]

IN THE VILLAGE OF ALDEN BRIDGE.

COLOR CHANGE.

I BELIEVE I ASKED THE COMMITTEE TO SEE IF THEY COULD DRIVE BY THIS AREA.

THIS IS YOUR MAP OF THE AREA.

THE PURPLE HIGHLIGHTED IS THE PROPERTY THAT HAD THE HOUSE PAINTED.

ACTUALLY, THREE COMPLAINTS, HOWEVER, ONE OF THEM SAID IF THE DSC WAS FINE WITH IT, SHE WAS FINE WITH IT TOO.

>> THERE IS YOUR AERIAL PHOTO.

THEY DID SUBMIT AN APPLICATION ONCE WE INFORMED THEM THAT AN APPLICATION WAS REQUIRED FOR PAINTING THE HOUSE.

THEY DID START WORK WITHOUT APPROVAL.

YOUR PUZZLE.

THEN THE VARIANCE REQUEST, THE HOMEOWNER DID STATE THAT THERE ARE MANY OTHER PROPERTIES WITH SIMILAR COLOR TYPES AROUND THE WOODLANDS, OR NOT REALLY ANY ON THAT STREET.

THESE PHOTOS WERE SUBMITTED BY THE COMPLAINANT, BEFORE AND THIS IS DURING THE PAINTING OF THE HOUSE.

YOU CAN SEE IT'S BEING PAINTED WHITE WITH BLACK TRIM.

THESE ARE MORE PHOTOS SUBMITTED.

AND WE HAVE QUITE A FEW PHOTOS THAT WERE SUBMITTED AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE SOME PHOTOS OF SOME COMPARABLES THAT ARE IN ALDEN BRIDGE THAT THE HOMEOWNER SUBMITTED AND SOME THAT THE STAFF SAW.

THIS IS â€'â€' WE DON'T HAVE AN ADDRESS ON THIS ONE.

THEY JUST SUBMITTED A PHOTO OF IT.

HERE 71 PALM CREST, SIMILAR COLOR.

YOU CAN SEE THE BRICK IS SLIGHTLY LIME WASHED HERE.

DIFFERENT ADDRESSES.

38 GAS LIGHT.

NOW SOME OF THE PHOTOS WERE IN INDIAN SPRINGS AND COCHRAN.

NOT IN THAT ACTUAL NEIGHBORHOOD OF ALDEN BRIDGE.

JUST OTHER PHOTOS THAT WERE SUBMITTED AND I BELIEVE THE OWNER WAS ON THE WAIT LIST TO DISCUSS THIS WITH THE COMMITTEE.

JUST MORE COMPARABLES THAT WERE SENT IN.

WOULD YOU LIKE THE RESIDENT TO SPEAK?

>> YES, IN JUST A MINUTE.

HAS ANYBODY DRIVEN BY?

>> YES, SIR.

>> YES, I DID.

>> YEAH, I DROVE BY IT ALSO.

>> ARTHUR DROVE BY ALSO.

>> ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS? WE CAN LET THE HOMEOWNER SPEAK AND THEN WE CAN MAKE OUR COMMENTS.

>> YEAH, I THINK THAT IS PRUDENT.

>> OKAY.

THE HOMEOWNER, HAVE YOU RAISED YOUR HAND.

I BELIEVE â€'â€' I THINK HERE IS ONE.

HELLO.

ARE YOU HERE TO TALK ABOUT 10 BLUFF CREEK?

>> YES.

JEFF WALLACE, 10 BLUFF CREEK.

>> OKAY.

GO AHEAD.

YOU'RE LIVE WITH THE COMMITTEE.

>> YES.

I HEARD AND I'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THE PHOTOS THAT YOU GUYS HAVE ON FILE THERE.

THE ONLY THING I WOULD LIKE TO ADD IS THAT WE DID FIND AN EXACT SIMILAR PRODUCT IN ALDEN BRIDGE JUST TO COUPLE OF DAYS AGO.

THAT IS 118 CLOVER GATE.

I SAW THAT YOU DID HAVE THE PHOTO OF THAT PROPERTY.

IDENTICAL PRODUCT TO WHAT WE HAVE AS FAR AS THE COLOR SCHEME.

YOU KNOW, PRIMARILY WE WERE ABLE TO FIND COMPARABLE PROPERTIES IN LIKE YOU SAID, INDIAN SPRINGS, I DIDN'T SUBMIT ANYTHING FROM PANTHER CREEK, BUT THEY EXIST THERE AS WELL.

ALDEN BRIDGE, LIKE I SAID, WE RECENTLY FOUND ONE COMPARABLE PROPERTY THAT IS THE EXACT PRODUCT THAT WE HAVE.

AND ALL OF THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS, WHERE WE SUBMITTED COMPARABLE PROPERTIES, THE NEIGHBORHOODS ARE ALL CONSISTENT.

[01:05:02]

IT'S NOT, YOU DON'T FIND YOU KNOW, ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS OF HOUSES DIFFERENT IN ANY OF THOSE LOCATIONS THAT HAD COMPARABLE PROPERTIES THAN ANYTHING THAT WE'RE SEEING ON BLUFF CREEK AS WELL.

SO I GUESS HOLLY WOULD BE ONE EXAMPLE THAT DOESN'T FIT THAT.

THERE IS A LOT OF ARCHITECTURAL VARIATION WITH OUR HOLLY EXAMPLE.

THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS ARE ALL VERY CONSISTENT.

I UNDERSTAND THAT SOME OF THE NEIGHBORS WERE NOT PLEASED WITH OUR PRODUCT.

AND I FEEL LIKE WE WERE SOMEWHAT LOBBIED AGAINST THERE.

BUT I THINK THE FINAL PRODUCT YOU KNOW, SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL HOME.

WE'VE HAD FEEDBACK FROM THE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN OVERWHELMING.

YOU KNOW, POSITIVE.

SO I THINK WE'VE IMPROVED THE PROPERTY.

WE STARTED WITH A BRICK THAT WAS PINK AND I THINK THIS IS A MUCH BETTER PRODUCT.

>> YOU DID THE WORK BEFORE I GOT THE PERMIT, THOUGH, RIGHT?

>> THAT IS CORRECT, YES, SIR.

AND WE WORK REGULARLY IN THE WOODLANDS.

WE ARE AWARE OF THE PROCESS.

WE DROPPED THE BALL ON THIS ONE.

NORMALLY WE HAVE A REALLY GOOD HISTORY OF WORKING HAND IN HAND WITH THE TOWNSHIP TO GET THESE PROPERTIES APPROVED WHEN WE DO EXTERIOR CHANGES.

AND WE'VE TAKEN SOME REALLY REALLY BAD PROPERTIES AND MADE THEM YOU KNOW, NICE PLACES TO LIVE.

SO I FEEL LIKE OVER ALL, WE'RE A POSITIVE FOR THE COMMUNITY.

>> SO YOU DON'T LIVE IN THIS HOME, THEN?

>> I DO NOT, NO.

>> OKAY.

>> IS JEFF A CONTRACTOR?

>> NO, I'M NOT A CONTRACTOR.

>> HOW LONG HAVE YOU OWNED THIS PROPERTY?

>> WE BOUGHT THIS A FEW MONTHS AGO.

I'M NOT SURE OF THE EXACT DATE.

>> IS ANYONE LIVING IN THIS PROPERTY OR IT IS TO BE SOLD? WHAT IS THE STATUS OF THE PROPERTY?

>> THE PROPERTY IS ON THE MARKET.

WE ARE UNDER CONTRACT.

IT'S TO BE SOLD AS SOON AS WE RESOLVE OUR APPLICATION WITH THE TOWNSHIP.

WE WERE ON THE PROPERTY, WE WERE ON THE MARKET FOR ONE DAY AND WE HAD AN OVERWHELMING RESPONSE.

WE HAD A DOZEN SHOWINGS IN THE FIRST SIX OR SEVEN HOURS.

WE HAD SEVEN OFFERS.

THIS IS A VERY POPULAR TREND RIGHT NOW.

AND YOU KNOW, WE'RE SEEING CHANGES IN TRENDS IN REAL ESTATE.

ONE THING I LIKE ABOUT THIS TREND IS IT'S A TIMELESS LOOK.

THIS IS A VERY CLASSIC PROPERTY.

SOME OF THOSE EXAMPLES THAT WE SUBMITTED YOU KNOW, WERE 20Â YEARS OLD.

AND THEY LOOK EXACTLY LIKE YOU KNOW, WHAT IS BECOMING POPULAR AGAIN TODAY.

BUT IT'S A VERY CLASSIC LOOK.

TIMELESS AND THE RESPONSE YOU KNOW, ON THE MARKET IS JUST OVERWHELMING.

JUST AS YOU KNOW, GROGAN'S MILL IS STARTING TO SEE THE TREND OF TEARING DOWN AND REBUILDING, ALDEN BRIDGE, I THINK IS JUST STARTING TO SEE THE TREND OF SOME EXTERIOR UPDATING.

I MEAN, SOME OF THE BRICK IS BEAUTIFUL, BUT WHEN YOU'VE GOT A HOUSE THAT IS YOU KNOW, LOOKS LIKE IT WAS ON AN EPISODE OF MIAMI VICE, IT'S NOT A POPULAR LOOK.

SO I THINK ALDEN BRIDGE IS GOING TO START SEEING A LOT OF EXTERIOR REQUESTS.

AS FAR AS CHANGES.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.

I APPRECIATE IT.

I WILL HAVE TO REFER TO MY ARCHITECTURAL TEAMMATES.

IS THIS A TREND?

>> I THINK SO.

>> YEAH.

IT IS.

>> OF COURSE.

>> WALT, I THINK THERE IS SOMEBODY ELSE ON THE LINE TO DISCUSS THIS.

IS THERE SOMEBODY ELSE? I BELIEVE I SEE THEIR HAND RAISED.

HELLO.

>> I LIVE NEXT DOOR TO THIS HOUSE.

THE CORNER OF THE HOUSE IS ALREADY FADING OFF.

IT DOESN'T LOOK UNIFORM.

SOME OF THOSE SAMPLES THEY SHOW IS FOR THE PRODUCT THAT IS WHITE, PAINTED IN ANOTHER

[01:10:08]

WAY.

YOU CAN LOOK CLOSER AND YOU WILL SEE THAT THE BRICK DOESN'T LOOK UNIFORM.

I DON'T HAVE THE LIST OF MY NEIGHBORS, AFTER TALKING TO THEM, THEY THINK THAT THIS CHANGE MIGHT AFFECT THE PROPERTY VALUE OF THEIR HOUSES.

SO WHATEVER, WE WANT TO STOP THIS TREND OF PEOPLE MAKING CHANGES WITHOUT PERMISSIONS, THEY ARE GOING TO DO WHATEVER THEY WANT.

WE NEVER â€'â€' YOU SHOULD BE FAMILIAR WHEN YOU DO A POOL OR SOMETHING, MY UNDERSTANDING THEY GO FIRST TO YOU OR TO THE NEIGHBORS FOR PERMISSION.

AND WE NEVER GOT THAT REQUEST.

AND I HAVE HERE IN MY EYES THE RESIDENTIAL DESIGN STANDARDS.

IT SAYS HERE THAT THE HOUSE OF THE COLOR IS NOT IN HARMONY WITH EXISTING SURROUNDING HOMES.

PROBABLY THE ADDRESSES THEY POINTED, I DON'T KNOW, IT IS NOT NEARBY.

SO YOU CAN WALK AROUND FIVE BLOCKS OF THIS HOUSE AND YOU WON'T FIND A HOUSE LIKE THIS ONE.

OKAY.

I AM GLAD THAT OTHER GUYS ARE HAVING OVERWHELMING FEEDBACK ABOUT THE HOUSE.

BUT YOU CAN ASK MY NEIGHBORS ON THE WHOLE STREET.

OKAY.

THAT WAS MY MAIN COMPLAINT.

THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR COMMENTS.

>> I GUESS WHEN I DROVE BY, I DON'T KNOW IF ARTHUR OR MARY HAVE THE SAME COMMENT, BUT YOU KNOW, THERE IS A DIFFERENT, THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS NOT ALL THE SAME.

I MEAN, THERE IS LIME STONE, YOU KNOW, ROCK HOUSE ALMOST DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET.

SO IT'S NOT LIKE EVERY HOUSE IS LIKE THE ONE TO THE LEFT THERE, BRICK AND I MEAN, THERE IS DIFFERENT ARCHITECTURAL STYLES ON THAT STREET ALSO.

SO IT'S NOT LIKE ALL OF THE HOMES ARE THE SAME.

>> ANYBODY HAVE ANY OTHER COMMENTS?

>> COMMENT ON THE GROGAN'S MILL, THE OLDER HOMES, THERE ARE TWO ISSUES THERE.

ONE IS, THE MAIN ONE IS THE FLOORPLAN.

SO THE OLD FLOORPLANS DON'T ACCOMMODATE THE NEW STYLE OF LIVING, THAT IS WHY THEY ARE TEARâ€'DOWNS.

IN THE NEWER AREAS LIKE ALDEN BRIDGE, THE FLOORPLAN IS FINE, IT IS THE EXTERIOR THAT IS A LITTLE BIT DATED, BASED ON WHAT IS POPULAR NOW.

SO I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO SEE MORE OF THIS.

>> ROBERT, WE APPRECIATE THAT OBSERVATION.

WHEN I DROVE BY, IT'S CLEAR THAT THE WHITE AND BLACK STAND OUT IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, BUT MY CONCERN WHAT HIT ME, WHAT MR. CRUISE BROUGHT UP, THE BRICK IS NOT CONSISTENTLY WHITE, WHITE SPOTS, DARK SPOTS, THE BRICK UNDERNEATH IS BLEEDING THROUGH, YOU CAN SEE IT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE HOUSE IN VARIOUS PLACES.

I TOOK A FEW PICTURES, IT IS CLEAR THAT IT IS NOT CONSISTENT.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE JOB WAS POOR, BUT IT'S NOT A CLEAR WHITE AND BLACK HOUSE.

>> YES.

>> AND I THINK THE NEIGHBORS ARE GOING TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT THAT AND MAYBE THE BRICK ABSORBED TOO MUCH PAINT, I'M NOT A PAINT PERSON.

BUT IT DID NOT LOOK CONSISTENTLY WHITE ON ALL LOCATIONS OF THE BUILDING.

>> I BELIEVE THAT THE PAINT ACTUALLY WAS A WASH.

A LIME WASH.

AND I THINK THAT THE BRICK IS SUPPOSED TO COME THROUGH A LITTLE BIT ON THAT TYPE OF PROCESS.

>> WELL YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE A UNIFORM WHITE COLOR.

SO IT'S REALLY TOO DIFFERENT PROCESSES.

PAINT OR WASH.

>> WELL, IF IT'S A WASH, IT CERTAINLY DOESN'T LOOK TOO GOOD IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

ROBERT, IS THE TREND TO GO WITH WASH OR TREND TO HAVE JUST A TRUE WHITE AND BLACK HOUSE?

>> PROBABLY BOTH.

WHAT I SEE MORE IS THE TRUE WHITE AND BLACK, BUT YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE MIGHT

[01:15:06]

ARGUE THAT THE WASH IS A BETTER BLEND THAN JUST A WHITE.

SO I WOULD ASK THE OWNER ABOUT THAT.

WAS HIS INTENT MORE OF AN UNEVEN FINISH OR NOT.

I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR WHAT HE SAYS.

>> ARE YOU STILL ON, SIR?

>> I DON'T THINK HE IS ON.

>> THE ONES IN THE WOODLANDS THAT WE'VE SEEN ARE MOST OF THEM UNIFORM OR THE WASH?

>> I THINK THEY'VE BEEN UNIFORM.

>> YEAH.

>> YEAH.

>> WE HAVE RECEIVED SOME OF THE WASH IN THE PAST.

>> THE ONE OVER IN PANTHER CREEK THAT WAS KIND OF LIKE A WASH AND PART OF THE BRICK.

>> THERE IS A COUPLE, IT MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN ALDEN BRIDGE, STERLING RIDGE, A COUPLE IN TWA THAT I KNOW OF.

>> AND THE RECOMMENDED MOTION IS THAT THE DSC OR COMMENT FROM STAFF WAS THAT THE DSC HAS APPROVED MANY OTHER WHITE PAINTED BRICK HOMES RECENTLY.

TALKED ABOUT PAINTED.

I DON'T THINK WE'VE SEEN TOO MANY WASHED HOUSES.

>> WE HAVE SEEN SOME.

>> BUT THE COMBINATION OF THE WHITE AND THE BLACK IS VERY POPULAR.

>> I DON'T HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THE COMBINATION OF WHITE AND BLACK.

I THINK IT'S POPULAR AND CLASSY.

I THINK THE CONCERN IS WHETHER IT'S A WASHED HOUSE OR A PAINTED HOUSE.

AND A PAINTED HOUSE LOOKS VERY CONSISTENT.

IT LOOKS GOOD AND STANDS OUT.

>> YOU KNOW, I WOULD AGREE WITH WHAT ARTHUR AND MARY SAID.

I DROVE BY THE HOUSE AND THE PICTURE HERE IS MISLEADING.

I MEAN, TO ME THE PICTURE HERE LOOKS PRETTY CLASSY.

YOU KNOW, WHITE AND BLACK.

BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE THING, IT DOES LOOK LIKE IT WAS JUST SLAPPED ON THERE.

SO I WOULD MAKE â€'â€' >> THE PHOTO HAS BEEN PHOTO SHOPPED.

>> THIS PHOTO HAS BEEN PHOTOSHOPPED.

SO THAT IS PROBABLY WHY.

>> IT'S PROBABLY WHY IT'S GOTTEN A LOT OF GOOD INTEREST ON THE REAL ESTATE MARKET.

BECAUSE PEOPLE LOOK, THAT LOOKS VERY CLASSY, VERY SHARP AND IT POPS.

>> SOME OF THESE PHOTOS ARE SUBMITTED BY THE COMPLAINER.

SO I DON'T THINK, LIKE THIS ONE AND THIS ONE, IS NOT PHOTO SHOPPED.

>> NO.

>> THE OTHER ONE WAS.

THE GRASS IS MISSING HERE, IT'S OVERLAPPING THE BORDER STONE.

>> WE HAVE SOME PHOTOS SUBMITTED BY THE HOMEOWNER AND SOME SUBMITTED BY THE COMPLAINER.

>> THE ONE SUBMITTED BY THE HOMEOWNER ARE PROBABLY THE PHOTOSHOPPED ONES USED FOR THE REAL ESTATE AGENT TO SELL THE HOME.

IF YOU GO BACK TO IT, YOU CAN SEE THE GRASS ALONG THE BORDER OF THE PLANTER BED IS OVERLAPPING.

THEY'VE DONE AN SHODDY JOB.

CAN YOU GO BACK TO THAT ONE?

>> IT WAS THE ONE THAT WAS A COUPLE OF SLIDES FORWARD.

>> I KNOW.

>> THAT ONE.

AND THEN THE NEXT ONE.

>> THIS ONE.

>> YEAH.

YOU CAN SEE THE GRASS IS FLOATING OVER SOME OF THE STONE.

>> WE NEED TO SAVE THAT TO SHOW THAT GRASS GROWS IN THE SHADE.

>> OKAY.

I TELL YOU WHAT, I GOT A MOTION TO DENY THE REQUEST AS PRESENTED.

AND HAVE THE OWNER RESUBMIT WITH A COLOR THAT IS WHITE, SOLID WHITE, WHITE AND BLACK.

I WOULD AGREE THAT THE COLOR NEEDS TO BE A SOLID WHITE, WHITE COLOR.

>> IT NEEDS TO BE A SOLID WHITE AND NOT A LIME WASH.

>> YES.

>> SECOND THAT.

>> AND MR. CHAIRMAN, CAN I JUST MAKE A QUICK COMMENT.

SO THE APPLICANT OBVIOUSLY IS JEFF WALLACE, CORRECT?

>> CORRECT.

>> YEAH.

SO HE'S ACTUALLY THE REALTOR AS WELL.

SO HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER IN REGARDS TO BASICALLY GETTING THIS APPROVED BEFORE.

OUT OF EVERYTHING THAT KIND OF BOTHERS ME, THAT IS WHAT BOTHERS ME THE MOST.

AND YOU KNOW, IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS UNFORTUNATELY, YEAH, IT IS THE MODERN LOOK IS WHAT IS TRENDING FORWARD, BUT IT'S JUST THE APPLICATION OF YOU KNOW,

[01:20:03]

TRYING TO CIRCUMVENT THE PROCESS.

IT'S REALLY TO ME WHAT MAKES ME MORE UPSET.

BEING A REALTOR IN THE WOODLANDS, HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER.

>> I WOULD AGREE.

MOTION.

WAS THERE A SECOND?

>> YES, SIR.

ARTHUR WILL SECOND.

>> ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SAY AYE.

>> DO YOU WANT THIS TO RETURN TO THE NEXT MEETING?

>> I THINK STAFF CAN DO IT.

>> I THINK STAFF IS MORE THAN CAPABLE, BASED ON OUR MOTION TONIGHT.

>> YEAH.

OKAY.

I SEE TWO HANDS UP.

LET ME FIND OUT REAL QUICK IF THEY WANTED TO MAKE A COMMENT ON THIS.

>> WE'VE ALREADY RULED ON IT.

>> HELLO.

>> HELLO.

WERE YOU CALLING TO MAKE A COMMENT ON.

>> YES, MA'AM.

FOR CLARIFICATION ON THE 10 BLUFF CREEK HOUSE.

>> THE COMMITTEE DISAPPROVED THE COLOR AS SUBMITTED AND REQUIRED THEM TO SUBMIT A SOLID COLOR WHITE INSTEAD.

>> I UNDERSTAND THAT.

BUT THE REGULATION SPECIFICALLY PROHIBIT GLOSS BLACK PAINT.

AND THAT HOUSE, THE TRIM IS PAINTED GLOSS BLACK.

THAT WAS NOT PICKED UP.

AND I SENT A LETTER AND I WAS WAITING TO SPEAK AND I HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET THROUGH.

SO THE TRIM IS EVEN MORE OBNOXIOUS THAN THE WHITE FACADE.

MY PRIMARY CONCERN IS THAT PEOPLE CAN'T BE ALLOWED TO UNILATERALLY DO WHAT THEY WANT TO THE DETRIMENT AND HARMONY WISE, FOR THEIR OWN PRIVATE GAIN.

HE IS NOT REPRESENTING THE FACTS CORRECTLY, WHEN HE SAYS THAT EVERYBODY IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD WAS IN FAVOR OF IT.

THAT IS NOT TRUE.

I CAN GIVE YOU THE LIST OF EVERYBODY ON THIS STREET THAT DOES NOT LIKE THAT PARTICULAR SCHEME.

IT IS A NOT IN HARMONY WITH THE STANDARDS.

SO HE MISREPRESENTED THE FACTS.

YES, IT IS A VERY POOR JOB.

I AM AN EXPERT IN CONSTRUCTION.

SO I CAN GO THROUGH MY BULLET POINTS, BUT I DON'T THINK THAT IS NECESSARY.

BUT I DO THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO REALIZE PAINTING THE HOUSE WHITE IS NOT IN HARMONY WITH THE STANDARDS.

IT IS NOT AN EARTH TONE.

AND YES, IT MAY BE TRENDY AND STREAKY AND ALL OF THAT SORT OF THING, BUT IT IS NOT IN CONTRAST WITH ALL OF THE HOUSES AROUND IT AND IT IS NOT TO THE LIKING OF ALL OF THE PEOPLE HERE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS.

I MEAN, FOR YOUR LISTENING TO MY POINTS.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU.

>> I DIDN'T NOTICE THE TRIM.

WAS IT GLOSS?

>> IT'S NOT LISTED AS GLOSS.

BUT WE â€'â€' IT'S NOT LISTED AS GLOSS.

>> IT SHOULDN'T BE GLOSS.

>> WE HAVE TO DO A REVISED MOTION OR A SECOND MOTION THAT IT SHOULD NOT BE HIGH GLOSS.

>> YEAH.

I'M SORRY.

I DIDN'T SEE THAT WHEN I DROVE BY.

>> WELL, IT REALLY WASN'T POINTED OUT EITHER.

BUT I THINK WE CAN CORRECT THAT AND DO A SECOND MOTION TO ENSURE THAT IT DOES NOT STAY HIGH GLOSS AND IT MEETS THE STANDARDS.

>> DO I HAVE A SECOND?

>> I'LL SECOND THAT.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR.

>> AYE.

IS THIS NUMBER 8?

>> I BELIEVE SO.

WE HAD A LOT OF PICTURES FOR THIS.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODY IS HERE FOR THIS ONE.

DO YOU WANT TO SKIP OVER IT? LET ME ASK, IS THERE ANYBODY HERE FOR 47 REAGAN CIRCLE, PLEASE STAR 9 ON YOUR PHONE.

RAISE YOUR HAND.

I DO HAVE SOMEBODY WITH A RAISED HAND, BUT I THINK THEY ALREADY SPOKE.

LET ME GET THEM.

ARE YOU HERE TO SPEAK ON 47 REAGAN MEAD CIRCLE? HELLO.

HELLO.

OKAY.

WALT, DID YOU WANT ME TO SKIP OVER THE ONES IF THERE IS NOBODY ON LINE FOR THEM

[01:25:09]

OR WANT ME TO GO AHEAD?

>> LET'S GET SOMEBODY ON THE LINE.

>> WE ALSO HAVE NUMBER 9, WHICH IS 38 JUNIPER GROVE PLACE.

[Item X 9]

I SEE A HAND JUST MOVED.

LET ME FIND OUT IF THEY'RE WITH JUNIPER GROVE.

>> THIS IS JIM, AT 38 JUNIPER GROVE.

>> OKAY.

LET ME DO A PRESENTATION AND WE'LL GET YOU BACK ONLINE.

OKAY.

HOLD ON.

>> THANK YOU.

>> 38 JUNIPER GROVE PLACE IS IN THE VILLAGE OF ALDEN BRIDGE.

TREE REMOVAL REQUEST THAT WAS DISAPPROVED PREVIOUSLY.

THIS IS YOUR LOCATION.

AERIAL PHOTO.

THIS IS THE SURVEY OF THE PROPERTY.

YOU CAN SEE THE TWO TREES ARE LOCATED IN THE FRONT YARD.

YOU CAN SEE TREE ONE BY THE DRIVEWAY AND TREE TWO CLOSER TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HOUSE.

THESE WERE DISAPPROVED BY THE RDRC ACTUALLY IN MARCH.

THEY REQUIRED THE HOMEOWNER TO PROVIDE A REPORT FROM THE CIVIL ENGINEER SHOWING THE TREES WERE CAUSING DAMAGE TO THE HOUSE, DRIVEWAY AND WALKWAY AND THEY MADE A COMMENT ABOUT THEY FELT THAT THERE WAS COMPACTION OF THE SUB SURFACE.

BOTH TREES ARE LIVE OAKS.

ONE IS 15.28Â INCHES IN DIAMETER.

ACTUALLY, IT SAYS BOTH OF THEM ARE, 15.28Â INCHES IN DIAMETER.

THIS WAS THE ARBORIST REPORT FOR THE TREES.

BASICALLY CONTENDED THAT THE TREES SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN PLANTED IN THAT LOCATION, THEY WERE TOO CLOSE TO THE HOUSE AND THAT HE FELT THE TREES SHOULD BE REMOVED BECAUSE THEY'VE ALREADY BEGAN TO LIFT THE SIDEWALK AND THE DRIVEWAY AND THAT IT WOULD GET WORSE.

THESE ARE PHOTOS OF THE WALKWAY.

AND JUST AS A REMINDER, FOR TREE REMOVALS, USUALLY CONDITIONS OF REMOVAL IS IF IT'S LOCATED WITHIN FIVE FEET OF THE HOUSE, OR AN EXISTING PERMANENT STRUCTURE.

OR CAN BE DEMONSTRATED POSE A SAFETY HAZARD TO PEOPLE OR PROPERTY.

IT'S UP TO FIVE FEET FROM AN AREA OF PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION AND IT'S CONSIDERED INVASIVE OR HAZARDOUS OR IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED TO BE DAMAGED DISEASED OR OTHERWISE HAZARDOUS BY A THIRD PARTY ARBORIST OR OTHER QUALIFIED INDIVIDUAL.

FRONT ELEVATION OF THE HOME.

TREE ONE HERE, TREE TWO TO THE RIGHT.

TREE ONE IS ABOUT FIVE AND A HALF FEET FROM THE DRIVEWAY AND 15Â FEET, 7Â INCHES TO THE HOUSE.

IT'S ABOUT 3Â FEET 7Â INCHES TO THE ADJACENT SIDEWALK THAT GOES FROM THE DRIVEWAY TO THE FRONT DOOR.

MORE PHOTOS.

THE WAY IT'S GROWING AWAY FROM THE OTHER TREES.

THIS IS TO SHOW YOU HOW MANY TREES ARE IN THE REAR YARD.

WE HAVE A COUPLE OF TREES THERE.

MAINLY LOWER LEVEL SHRUBS.

AND I BELIEVE THOSE ARE ALL OF THE PHOTOS I HAVE FOR THIS APPLICATION.

>> OKAY.

THIS IS THE HOMEOWNER, 38 JUNIPER GROVE.

>> YOU CAN GO AHEAD.

>> GREAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS THE COMMITTEE.

YES, WE WERE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE LIABILITY ISSUE.

WE'VE HAD TWO PEOPLE ACTUALLY TRIP ON OUR SIDEWALK LEAVING, YOU KNOW, FROM OUR HOME.

AND THEN WE HAVE OBVIOUSLY WE HAVE A NUMBER OF DELIVERIES THAT ARRIVE ON A REGULAR BASIS JUST SO PEOPLE ARE COMING TO OUR DOOR ON A MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY OFTENTIMES THROUGHOUT THE WEEK.

SO VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE TRIP HAZARD THAT SOMEONE MIGHT TRIP AND THEN HURT THEMSELVES.

SO WE WANT TO, THAT IS WHAT INITIALLY STARTED THIS PROCESS.

SO WE STARTED LOOKING AT THAT.

WE CONSULTED A PROFESSIONAL ARBORIST.

HE HAS ACTUALLY BEEN AN ARBORIST WHO HAS HELPED ME WITH THE TREES FOR THE 13Â YEARS, HE HELPED ME WITH A PRIOR HOME PRIOR TO THAT.

AND HE CONSULTED ME ON THE TWO LIVE OAKS YOU KNOW, SO CLOSE TO THE RED OAK TREE, AS YOU LABELED TREE NUMBER TWO, A RED OAK TREE WITHIN A FEW FEET TO THE RIGHT OF

[01:30:38]

THAT TREE.

AND THEN THE LIVE OAK TREE THAT IS NEXT TO THE DRIVEWAY IS OBVIOUSLY CAUSING SIDEWALK DAMAGE AND DRIVEWAY DAMAGE.

AND IT ACTUALLY, THERE IS ACTUALLY A FULL MAGNOLIA TREE BETWEEN THE LIVE OAK TREE AND THE HOME, SO THERE IS A CONCERN OF TOO MANY LARGE TREES, IN SUCH A CONFINED AREA.

SO WE CONSULTED AND WE BUILT A PLAN, THE ARBORIST SAID IF YOU TAKE OUT THE TWO LIVE OAK TREES, THE RED OAK TREE WILL GROW TO FRUITION.

AND WILL BE ABLE TO STOP GROWING TOWARDS YOUR HOME, BUT INSTEAD GROW TOWARD THE MIDDLE OF THE YARD, WHICH IS WHAT YOU WANT IT TO DO.

SOUTHWEST SIDE OF OUR HOME.

AND THEN WE PLANTED TWO YEARS AGO A RED MAPLE IN BETWEEN THE TWO LIVE OAK TREES, PROPOSING THIS PROCESS TO THEN REMOVE THESE TREES SO THAT THAT RED MAPLE WOULD THEN GROW AND FILL IN THE AREA THAT WOULD THEN BE VACATED BY THE TWO LARGE LIVE OAK TREES.

SO WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO TAKE A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO DO THIS THE RIGHT WAY AND DO THE PLANTING AND ACTUALLY REMOVE THE TREES AS THEY BECOME A HAZARD.

BUT THEN HAVE OTHER TREES IN PLACE SO THAT IT DIDN'T CHANGE REALLY IN REGARDS TO OUR OVERALL LANDSCAPING.

WE DO KNOW ALL OF OUR NEIGHBORS.

WE'VE DISCUSSED IT WITH ALL OF OUR NEIGHBORS.

ALL OF THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT WE'RE ATTEMPTING TO DO AND ARE ALL CONCERNED WITH THE LIABILITY ISSUE AS WELL.

WITH THAT, I'LL PUT IT BACK TO THE COMMITTEE AND IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS FOR ME, I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

SO MY QUESTION IS FOR THE HOMEOWNER, DID THE ARBORIST MENTION DOING A ROOT BARRIER SYSTEM?

>> HE DID NOT MENTION A ROOT BARRIER SYSTEM AS THE DAMAGE HAD ALREADY BEEN DONE.

THE CONCERN WOULD BE THAT IF YOU PUT A ROOT BARRIER IN TO PROTECT WHERE THE SIDEWALK BEING LIFTED, IT WOULD PROBABLY KILL THE TREE.

>> I DON'T THINK IT WOULD KILL THE TREE.

BUT SO BASICALLY WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS MITIGATE RISK BY TAKING THE TREES OUT, I DON'T KNOW IF THE RISK WILL, I MEAN, I DON'T THINK IT WILL ELIMINATE THE RISK ALL TOGETHER OF THE SIDEWALK.

I STILL THINK YOU'LL HAVE A TRIPPING HAZARD AS WELL.

>> MY INTENTION IS ACTUALLY TO REMOVE THE TREE.

BUT I'M GOING TO BREAK OUT THE PIECES OF SIDEWALK THAT HAVE BEEN LIFTED, REMOVE THE ROOTS THAT ARE UNDERNEATH AND THEN REPOUR THE CONCRETE TO THE SAME SPEC THAT IS ALREADY THERE.

>> YOU KNOW, THERE IS A COMPANY THAT CAN PUMP THAT UP SO THAT IT WILL LEVEL IT FOR YOU WITHOUT CHIPPING THE CONCRETE UP.

>> WELL, THE ISSUE IS IT'S BEEN LIFTED, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GET UNDERNEATH TO REMOVE THE ROOTS TO LOWER THE SIDEWALK BACK DOWN TO THE SAME LEVEL OF THE

[01:35:04]

DRIVEWAY, OR I WILL HAVE ABOUT A TWO OR THREE INCH STEPâ€'UP GOING TO THE SIDEWALK.

>> YOU KNOW, IF I WERE YOU, I KNOW ED VERY WELL, WHAT I WOULD DO IS YOU KNOW, I'VE GOT LIVE OAK TREES THAT ARE ABOUT THAT CLOSE TO DRIVEWAYS MYSELF.

AND IF YOU DRIVE JUST BIKE THROUGH THE TRAIL SYSTEMS IN THE WOODLANDS, YOU'LL FIND TREES SOME ARE OAK TREES, THEY'RE NOT LIVE OAKS, BUT THEY'RE RIGHT NEXT TO THE PATHWAY.

AND SOME AREAS OF THE PATHWAY HAS BEEN LIFTED AND REPOURED OVER THE ROOTS.

IF YOU'RE PLANNING TO REMOVE THOSE ROOTS ANYWAY, THAT IS THE FIRST THING I WOULD DO IS REMOVE YOUR SLAB, SEE WHAT ROOT IS DOWN THERE, IS IT SEVERAL OR IS IT ONLY ONE.

AND IF IT'S ONLY ONE, CUT THE ROOT, REPOUR THE SIDEWALK.

BUT SAVE THE TREE.

THAT IS WHAT I WOULD DO, ON THE ONE ON THE WALKWAY GOING IN.

I MEAN, ONE REASON THAT IT'S LIFTED SO EASILY IS THERE IS NO REBAR BETWEEN THE LAKES.

SO WHEN YOU DO THAT, IT'S REAL EASY FOR A TREE TO LIFT THE SLAB UP.

IT DOESN'T HAVE THE REBAR CONNECTING THE SLABS.

THE OTHER ONE, THE ONE ON THE FRONT I TEND TO AGREE, YOU GOT TWO TREES THERE TOO CLOSE TOGETHER.

TOO BAD THE LIVE OAK ISN'T THE BETTER OF THE TWO.

BUT MAYBE YOU GOT TO GET RID OF ONE OF THE TWO.

>> OKAY.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

I THINK I'M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU SAY REMOVE THE SLABS, REMOVE THE ROOTS AND THEN REPOUR SLAB WITH REBAR, AND THEN PUT A ROOT BARRIER IN? IT WILL BE ABLE TO BE LEVEL FROM MY FRONT DOOR TO MY DRIVEWAY THEN?

>> RIGHT.

IN OTHER WORDS IF YOU'VE GOT ROOTS ON THREE SIDES, YOU MAY NOT BE KILLING THE TREE AT ALL.

MAYBE ONLY ONE MAJOR ROOT COMING OUT THERE.

SO THAT IS WHAT I WOULD DO, DO SOME, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO REMOVE THE SIDEWALK ANYWAY.

REMOVE THAT FIRST.

SEE WHAT ROOTS ARE DOWN THERE.

IS IT THEN YOU KNOW, SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD CUT THAT ROOT AND SAVE THE TREE, BASICALLY BY CUTTING THE ROOT, YOU'RE ADDING THE ROOT BARRIER BUT SAVE THE TREE AND SEE WHETHER IT SURVIVES.

THEY DIDN'T SPREAD OUT.

SOMETIMES IT WORKS, SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T.

BUT THE ONES HE'S DONE FOR ME, THE TREE HAS SURVIVED.

>> I APPRECIATE THAT.

WILL I NEED TO HAVE SEPARATE APPROVAL TO TEAR OUT AND REPOUR MY SIDEWALK?

>> YES.

YOU'LL HAVE TO APPLY FOR REPLACING YOUR SIDEWALKS.

>> WE CAN SEND YOU THAT APPLICATION.

>> THANK YOU.

>> AND THE OTHER ONE IS JUST REMOVING ONE OF THE LARGE TREES, I'VE GOT TWO LARGE TREES RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER.

>> ARE THOSE TREES GOING TO BE TRIMMED UP?

>> WELL, YOU OBVIOUSLY COULD ON THE OAK TREE WITH THE LIMBS GROWING OUT TO THE STREET, YOU COULD OBVIOUSLY TRIM THAT LIMB.

YOU HAVE TWO THAT ARE CLOSE TOGETHER, SO THE LIMBS ARE ALWAYS GOING TO COMPETE.

SO REMOVING ONE OF THE TWO MIGHT BE THE BEST OPTION.

[01:40:01]

I DON'T KNOW.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE A MOTION? DENY AS PRESENTED?

>> I WOULD MAKE THE MOTION TO DENY AS PRESENTED.

ADD THE RECOMMENDATION THAT ROBERT INDICATED FOR TREE ONE, TAKE OUT THE SIDEWALK, FIND OUT WHAT ROOTS ARE UNDER THERE, CLEAN THOSE ROOTS OUT, AND YOU COULD ALSO ADD A ROOT BARRIER IF THE HOMEOWNER DECIDES AT THAT POINT AND REPOUR THE CONCRETE.

>> I'M NOT SURE WE CAN RECOMMEND THAT THE HOMEOWNER TEAR OUT HIS SIDEWALK.

I MEAN, THAT IS SOMETHING THAT HE'LL HAVE TO ASCERTAIN IF HE WANTS TO DO IT.

>> ALL RIGHT.

>> HOW ABOUT NUMBER TWO, TREE NUMBER TWO.

>> CAN I GET A CLARIFICATION ON TREE NUMBER ONE?

>> DENIED AS PRESENTED.

>> DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER PHOTO OF NUMBER TWO WITH THE RED OAK NEXT TO IT?

>> OKAY.

>> OBVIOUSLY GROWING TOWARD THE â€'â€' DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER ONE IN ADDITION TO THAT OR NOT?

>> I'M LOOKING.

>> NUMBER TWO.

THE RED OAK THAT THEY PLANTED WAS RIGHT HERE.

LET'S SEE IF THERE IS ANY MORE.

THERE WE GO.

>> THERE WAS A BIG RED OAK NEXT TO THE LIVE OAK.

ISN'T THIS A LIVE OAK? NUMBER TWO HERE.

>> THIS IS A LIVE OAK HERE.

>> PLANTED THE TREE TO REPLACE.

THIS IS THE TREE THAT THEY PLANTED.

NOW THERE ARE MORE TREES OVER HERE.

RIGHT BEHIND NUMBER TWO.

>> ISN'T THAT THE RED OAK TREE?

>> THAT TREE IS GROWING TOWARD THE STREET AWAY FROM THESE TREES BACK HERE.

DO YOU SEE BACK HERE?

>> THIS SLIDE HERE.

>> ON YOUR LEFT.

>> CAN'T THAT CANOPY JUST BE TRIMMED UP?

>> WELL, IF YOU LOOKED AT THE PICTURE, WHERE THEY'RE LEANING OVER THE STREET, YOU'RE GOING TO TRIM UP WHAT IS LEANING, LET ME GO BACK TO THE LEANING PICTURE.

HERE.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO TRIM UP WHAT IS LEANING, DO YOU SEE HOW SPARSE IT IS ON THE OTHER SIDE?

>> YEAH.

>> CREATE A TWIG ALMOST.

A BIG TWIG.

>> UHâ€'HUH.

>> IS THIS THE BIG RED OAK HERE?

>> YES.

RIGHT BEHIND IT.

THAT IS THE OTHER TREE THAT IS CAUSING THIS TREE TO MOVE.

>> YEAH.

I MEAN, I WOULD PROBABLY LEAN TOWARD TAKING THIS OUT.

BECAUSE YOU GOT TWO THAT ARE RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER.

AND THE BEST PART OF THIS TREE IS THE PART THAT IS LEADING OUT TO THE STREET.

>> CORRECT.

>> DO YOU WANT TO ADD THAT TO YOUR MOTION, ARTHUR?

>> I'LL REVISE THE MOTION.

DENIED ON TREE ONE AS PRESENTED AND APPROVE TREE TWO TO COME OUT.

>> OKAY.

IS THERE A SECOND?

>> I'LL SECOND IT.

>> ALL RIGHT.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR.

>> AYE.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU.

>> I BELIEVE THAT THE PERSON FROM THE ONE THAT WE JUST PASSED, NUMBER 8 IS CALLING

[Item X 8]

IN.

WANT TO GO BACK TO THAT ONE.

>> YES.

>> OKAY.

LET ME FIND HER.

>> HELLO.

ARE YOU HERE FOR ITEM NUMBER 8?

>> YES, THAT'S CORRECT.

IT'S MATTHEW HOLLIS, HOMEOWNER AT 47 REAGAN MEAD.

APOLOGIES FOR THE DELAY.

>> WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK AND DO THAT PRESENTATION AND THEN WE'LL CALL ON YOU.

ALL RIGHT?

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

VILLAGE OF STERLING RIDGE.

[01:45:04]

THIS IS ALSO A TREE REMOVAL.

HERE IS YOUR SECTION MAP.

YOUR AERIAL PHOTO.

THE SURVEY OF THE PROPERTY.

CAN SEE THE LOCATION OF THE TREE.

THIS WAS SUBMITTED BY THE HOMEOWNER.

THIS IS A 12â€'INCH DIAMETER TREE.

YOU CAN SEE THE ROOTS ON THE GROUND.

THERE YOU GO.

THE STREET VIEW.

HERE IS THE ROOTS IN RELATIONSHIP TO SOME OF THE â€'â€' INTO THE DRAINAGE OF THE AREA.

AND THIS IS A BALD CYPRUS AND THOSE ROOTS WERE ALSO THE KNEES, AND THEY LOOK LIKE THEY'VE BEEN WORN DOWN BY THE MOWER IN CERTAIN PLACES HERE.

AND THAT IS ALL I HAVE FOR YOU FOR THIS TREE.

AND I BELIEVE THE HOMEOWNER IS ONLINE.

>> DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FIRST?

>> I'VE GOT ONE.

IT'S JUST A NATIVE TREE.

>> BALD CYPRUSES ARE CONSIDERED NATIVE.

>> OKAY.

THEY ARE NATIVE TREES.

>> YEAH.

>> IN THE WOODLANDS.

OKAY.

>> IN THE STATE OF TEXAS, IT'S A NATIVE TREE.

>> ALL RIGHT.

>> IS THAT THE FRONT OR REAR THERE?

>> THAT IS THE FRONT.

>> FRONT.

>> OKAY.

>> TOO BAD THE CYPRUSES WORK BEST IN A LANDSCAPED BED.

BECAUSE OF, THEY DON'T WORK TOO WELL WITH GRASS AND LAWN.

>> DO YOU WANT THE HOMEOWNER TO SPEAK NOW?

>> YES, PLEASE.

>> HELLO, YOU'RE ON WITH THE DSC.

YOU CAN ADDRESS THEM WITH REGARD TO YOUR TREE.

>> THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME, EVERYBODY.

I JUST WANTED TO SORT OF REALLY VERY CLEARLY STATE THAT YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT OUR DESIRE TO HAVE THIS TREE REMOVED FOR ANY OTHER REASON REALLY THAT IT IS CAUSING SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO THE MAIN DRAIN THAT DRAINS FROM THE BACKYARD WHERE THE POOL AND THE DECK SIT.

YOU KNOW, IN RECENT RAINS WE'VE HAD THE DECK AND THE POOL ARE GETTING CONSISTENTLY OVERFLOWING BECAUSE THE DRAINAGE IS NOT FLOWING THROUGH THE DRAIN, CONNECTED TO THEM, FLOWS DOWN THROUGH THE FRONT YARD AND INTO THE STREET.

WE'RE CONCERNED OBVIOUSLY FOR OUR OWN PROPERTY IN TERMS OF THAT FLOODING EFFECT.

BUT ALSO FOR OUR NEIGHBOR'S PROPERTIES AS WELL.

BECAUSE EITHER SIDE OF US THERE IS A NATURAL FLOOD RUN THROUGH THEIR YARDS, SO THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR US TO CONTRIBUTE TO THAT EXCESS WATER FLOWING.

IT IS ALSO OUR INTENT, IF WE ARE GRANTED APPROVAL TO REMOVE THE TREE THAT WE ARE KEEN TO REPLANT WITH A MORE APPROPRIATE TREE FOR THE SETTING, THE ARBORIST REPORT DID STATE THAT HE WAS SURPRISED THAT WE HAD A CYPRUS PLANTED IN THAT LOCATION.

BECAUSE I THINK YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS ARE AS SOMEBODY MENTIONED, THAT IT PROBABLY WAS NOT THE APPROPRIATE TREE FOR THE SETTING.

SO OUR INTENT WOULD PROBABLY BE TO REPLACE IT WITH A 65â€'GALLON LIVE OAK TREE TO ENSURE THAT WE MAINTAIN THAT LOOK AND FEEL OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

WE HAVE SPOKEN TO A NUMBER OF OUR NEIGHBORS.

AND THEY HAVE ALL EXPRESSED THEY HAVE NO ISSUE WITH US REMOVING THE TREE AND REPLACING IT WITH A MORE APPROPRIATE SPECIES.

SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

>> SO PUT A 65â€'GALLON LIVE OAK IN THERE?

>> THAT WAS THE RECOMMENDATION THAT WE HAD FROM OUR LANDSCAPER FOR REPLACEMENT TREE THERE THAT WOULD THEN OBVIOUSLY BE MORE APPROPRIATE AND WOULDN'T CAUSE THE SAME EXTENT OF DAMAGE THAT WE'RE EXPERIENCING CURRENTLY WITH THIS SPECIES.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[01:50:01]

>> DISCUSSION GUYS?

>> SOUNDS LIKE A REASONABLE APPROACH.

>> I HAVE NO ISSUE WITH THAT.

>> 65â€'GALLON TREE REPLACEMENT LIVE OAK IS EXCELLENT.

>> OKAY.

>> FANTASTIC.

YES.

WE'RE COMMITTED TO ENSURING THAT WE MAINTAIN THE LOOK AND THE FEEL OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

>> PLANT THE NEW TREE A DISTANCE FROM THAT ONE, BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE ROOTS THAT ARE DOWN THERE, THAT HAVE TO GO OUT AND REMOVE EVERY ROOT, OR YOUR NEW TREE WON'T DO VERY WELL.

>> YEAH.

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF WORK DONE TO THE FRONT YARD.

BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY WE'RE PROBABLY GOING TO HAVE TO REPLACE A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF THE DRAINAGE PIPE AND SPRINKLER SYSTEM.

THE QUOTATION THAT WE HAD, DIG OUT ALL OF THE ROOTS, REPLACE THE DRAINAGE AND SPRINKLERS, AND ALSO RETILL THE FRONT YARD AS WELL.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

DO I HAVE A MOTION?

>> SO MOVED.

>> SECOND.

>> SO MOVED.

SECOND.

>> OKAY.

WAS THAT JOHN ANTHONY BROWN?

>> YES, MA'AM.

>> THANK YOU.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SAY AYE.

>> AYE.

>> ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU.

WHAT ABOUT THE TIME FRAME ON DOING THIS?

>> OH.

>> REPLANTING.

I MEAN, ONCE THE TREE IS REMOVED? DO WE HAVE ANY TIME FRAME OR ANYTHING?

>> I'M SORRY.

I MUTED HIM.

HOLD ON.

>> SIR, DO YOU HAVE A TIME FRAME ON THE REPLANT AND THE WORK IN YOUR YARD?

>> ONCE APPROVAL HAS BEEN PASSED AND WE HAVE THE REQUIRED PERMITS, THEN OUR INTENT IS TO MOVE AHEAD AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE TO GET IT REMOVED AND REPLANTED AS QUICKLY AS WE CAN, ONCE ALL OF THE ROOT SYSTEM THANKS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE FRONT YARD.

HOPEFULLY WE GET THE APPROVAL TO MOVE AHEAD, WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE IT IT DONE WITHIN THE NEXT THREE TO FOUR WEEKS.

>> THANK YOU.

>> ALL RIGHT.

WHAT IS NEXT?

>> NEXT ITEM IS NUMBER 10, WHICH IS 38 NORTH SHASTA BEND.

IS ANYBODY HERE FOR 38 NORTH SHASTA BEND? PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND BY HITTING STAR 9.

OKAY.

IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THERE IS ANYBODY HERE FOR NORTH SHASTA BEND.

WE'LL MOVE ON.

[Item X 11]

62 WEST CANYON WREN.

POOL BAT AND FIREPLACE THAT DO NOT RESPECT THE REAR 20â€'FOOT SETBACK.

THIS IS THE FRONT VIEW OF THE HOME.

ACTUALLY, IN THIS CASE, THE FIREPLACE IS EXISTING, HOWEVER, THE OUTDOOR BAT IS PROPOSED.

THERE IS YOUR SECTION MAP.

AND YOUR AERIAL PHOTO.

YOU CAN SEE THE PATIO COVER IS HERE.

AND THEY'RE CURRENTLY BUILDING A POOL AND THE PATIO COVER WAS BUILT IN A SOMEHOW A FIREPLACE WAS BUILT AT THE SAME TIME INSTEAD OF THE APPROVED FIRE PIT, I BELIEVE THAT IS WHAT WAS APPROVED.

THERE IS THE SURVEY OF THE PROPERTY.

YOU CAN SEE THE LOCATION OF THE PATIO COVER.

THIS IS THE FIREPLACE AND THE PROPOSED OUTDOOR BATHROOM, IN THIS AREA RIGHT THERE.

ANOTHER PART OF THE SURVEY, BASICALLY THE BATHROOM IS ONLY FOUR AND A HALF FEET BY EIGHT FEET.

IT'S ABOUT 36 SQUARE FEET.

IT ADDS ABOUT 11 AND A HALF SQUARE FOOT OF HARD SURFACE TO THE POOL DECKING.

BECAUSE THERE IS POOL DECKING UP TO THIS LOCATION AND OF COURSE, PATIO COVERS ON THE OTHER SIDE.

THIS IS YOUR PUZZLE.

THE HOMEOWNER WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT EVEN THOUGH THIS DOES PROJECT PAST THE SETBACK, THAT THE REAR IS A, THE REAR OF THIS PROPERTY, IT'S IN A CULâ€'DEâ€'SAC, SO IT HAS A DIFFERENT SHAPED LOT.

[01:55:02]

SO IT DOESN'T BACK UP DIRECTLY TO A BACK OF A HOUSE.

SO YOU'LL SEE MOSTLY YARD IN THIS AREA.

THIS ONE IS ALSO A LITTLE BIT OVER HARD SURFACE AREA.

THE MAXIMUM HARD SURFACE AREA IS 55Â PERCENT.

WE USUALLY ALLOW LIKE A TWO PERCENT MARGIN, THIS ONE IS AT 57.1.

VERY MINIMAL PERCENTAGE OVER THE HARD SURFACE AREA.

THIS IS YOUR FIREPLACE PLANS.

THIS WAS THE FIREPLACE, THE PLANS THAT YOU JUST SAW RIGHT HERE.

AND THIS IS THE OUTDOOR BATHROOM.

TOILET AND A SINK.

OPENS TO THE POOL AREA, NOT TOWARD THE NEIGHBORS TO THE REAR OR THE SIDE.

THIS IS YOUR ELEVATION DRAWINGS FOR THE OUTDOOR BATHROOM.

THIS WAS THE REQUEST FOR THE VARIANCE FOR THE FIREPLACE.

THIS HOMEOWNER SAYS THEY PURCHASED THE HOME IN 2017, AND THAT FIREPLACE WAS ALREADY BUILT, SO THE PREVIOUS OWNER IS THE ONES THAT BUILT THE FIREPLACE.

THIS IS THEIR REQUEST FOR THE POOL BATH, BASICALLY THEY'RE SAYING THAT DUE TO THE LAYOUT OF THE HOME, THE NEAREST BATHROOM IS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE AND THAT REQUIRES ANYBODY FROM THE POOL AREA GOING ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE TO USE THE BATHROOM.

THIS IS A LEFT AND FRONT ACCESS TO THE PROPERTIES.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE, HERE IS THE FIREPLACE.

IT'S ABOUT 14 AND A HALF FEET TALL.

AND THERE IS THE FIREPLACE PLANS.

YOU CAN SEE THE IMPACT TO THE LEFT NEIGHBOR.

THIS PHOTO IS BEFORE THE POOL WAS STARTED CONSTRUCTION.

AND YOU CAN SEE THIS WAS THE LOCATION OF THE PROPOSED POOL BATH.

THE POOL WAS APPROVED PREVIOUSLY AND THEY STARTED CONSTRUCTION AND WAITED FOR VARIANCE TO BE ON THE AGENDA FOR THE BATH.

12Â FEET 9Â INCHES FROM THE PROPERTY LINE.

AND IT IS A 20â€'FOOT SETBACK WHICH IS RIGHT AT THE EDGE OF THE PATIO COVER.

AND THEN IT'S 17Â FEET THREE INCHES TO THE FIREPLACE.

SO THE FIREPLACE IS ABOUT TWO FEET 9 INTO THE SETBACK.

THERE IS YOUR RIGHT SIDEâ€'VIEW.

AND THAT IS THE LEFT SIDE.

OF COURSE THESE TREES ARE GONE BECAUSE THE POOL IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

THAT WAS APPROVED WITH THE POOL.

ANOTHER VIEW OF THE BACK OF THE RIGHT SIDE.

OOPS.

AND THIS IS TO THE REAR.

HERE.

THIS IS DIRECTLY TO THE REAR OF THE POOL BATH.

THE PROPOSED POOL BATH AND THE FIREPLACE.

THIS IS THE LOCATION ALONG THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PROPERTY.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> SO THE FIREPLACE IS ALREADY ENCROACHING INTO THE 20â€'FOOT SETBACK, IS THAT RIGHT?

>> THAT'S CORRECT.

BOTH OF THEM ARE ENCROACHING THE SETBACK AND THEN THERE IS A HARD SURFACE OF A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF HARD SURFACE OVERAGE.

>> WHEN YOU PUT THE BATHROOM ON THERE, IT'S GOING TO ENCROACH EVEN MORE?

>> CORRECT.

>> LET ME GO BACK TO THAT PHOTO FOR YOU.

THERE.

SO RIGHT NOW, THE FIREPLACE IS 17â€'3 IN A 20â€'FOOT SETBACK.

SO TWO FOOT, 9Â INCHES.

WITH THE FOUR AND A HALF FEET OF THE POOL BATH, THE POOL BATH IS GOING TO BE 12Â FEET 9Â INCHES.

AND THAT IS ABOUT 7 AND A HALF OR SO FEET, 7 FEET THREE INCHES MAYBE, INTO THE 20â€'FOOT SETBACK.

>> OKAY.

OKAY.

IS THE HOMEOWNER ONLINE?

>> I BELIEVE SO.

>> SHE SAID IN A VERY GOOD REPORT, WE WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO BUILD AN OUTDOOR

[02:00:13]

BATHROOM AS WE WERE BUILDING OUR POOL, DUE TO THE POTENTIAL LIABILITY OF SLIPPING ALL THE WAY ACROSS OUR HOUSE.

UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE LAYOUT OF OUR LOT, THE ONLY LOCATION FOR AN OUTDOOR BATHROOM IS IN THAT SPOT.

AS IT WAS MENTIONED, WHEN WE BOUGHT THIS HOUSE, WE HAD NO IDEA THAT THE FIREPLACE HAD NOT BEEN PERMITTED.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE AMENITIES THAT ATTRACTED US TO THIS HOME.

SO THAT WAS QUITE SHOCKING WHEN WE WERE TRYING TO GET A PERMIT FOR THE POOL AND THE BATHROOM TO HERE.

SO WE SUBMITTED THE REQUEST FOR THAT AND THEN ALSO THE BATHROOM.

I DO KNOW THAT TWO OTHER HOMES ON OUR STREET WITH OUR SAME EXACT FLOORPLAN HAVE BEEN GRANTED VARIANCES TO THE REAR SETBACK.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME, I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM NOW.

>> ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR THE HOMEOWNER?

>> NO, SIR.

>> NO.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU, MA'AM.

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR NES.

IS THERE ANY OTHER TREES IN THAT BACKYARD?

>> I DON'T THINK SO.

>> SHE HAS NO TREES AT ALL IN THE BACKYARD.

>> LET ME GET SOME MORE PHOTOS.

>> AM I STILL ON?

>> YES, YOU ARE.

>> OKAY.

WE, IN THE PERMIT WE ARE REQUIRED TO REPLACE THOSE TWO TREES WITH 30â€'GALLON TREES FROM YOUR APPROVED LIST.

AND WE WILL BE DOING THAT ONCE ALL OF THE CONSTRUCTION IS COMPLETED.

>> GREAT.

THANK YOU.

>> YOU'RE WELCOME.

>> NES, YOU ALSO INDICATED LOOKING ON THE RIGHT SIDE, DO YOU THINK THAT ADDITIONAL SCREENING WOULD BE REQUIRED ON THE RIGHT SIDE?

>> WELL, I THINK ON OUR RECOMMENDED MOTION, THAT WE, WELL, WE DID ADD THAT FOR THE RECOMMENDED MOTION.

WE FELT THAT THERE SHOULD BE SOMETHING THERE BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING IN BETWEEN THAT PROPERTY AND THOSE PROPOSED AND THE EXISTING FIREPLACE.

>> THANK YOU.

IT LOOKS WIDE OPEN FROM THE PICTURES.

>> UHâ€'HUH.

>> DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH THE RECOMMENDED?

>> NO, SIR.

I THINK IT'S A GOOD RECOMMENDED MOTION.

>> MOTION.

SECOND THAT.

>> ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SAY AYE.

ANY OPPOSED? THANK YOU.

IT'S APPROVED ON THE CONDITION IT PASSES INSPECTION AND MEETS CODE.

THE BATHROOM IS APPROVED THAT YOU PLANT AND MAINTAIN TREES OR SHRUBS SEVEN FEET TALL AT THE TIME OF PLANTING TO THE RIGHT OF THE CORNER.

ALSO STAFF IS GOING TO REVIEW UPON COMPLETION TO DETERMINE IF SUFFICIENT OR ADDITIONAL PLANNING IS NEEDED.

YOU HAVE TO MEET CODE AND PASS INSPECTION.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE YOUR CONSIDERATION.

>> YOU'RE WELCOME.

YOU WILL BE GETTING AN Eâ€'MAIL WITH YOUR PERMIT.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

IS THAT IT?

>> WE HAVE 38 PLAYER POINT.

[Item X 12]

I BELIEVE THERE IS SOMEBODY HERE FOR 38 PLAYER POINT.

CAN YOU RAISE YOUR HAND.

WE DO HAVE SOMEBODY HERE.

SO WE WILL SET THEM ASIDE.

38 PLAYER POINT IS IN THE VILLAGE OF STERLING RIDGE.

IT'S A SWIMMING POOL AND SPA THAT ENCROACHES THE DEVELOPMENT SETBACK.

THIS IS YOUR SECTION MAP.

AND YOUR AERIAL PHOTO.

YOU CAN SEE IT BACKS UP TO A GOLF COURSE.

PLAYER POINT AREA.

THIS IS THE SURVEY.

NOW I'M NOT SURE IF EVERYBODY REMEMBERS ABOUT DEVELOPMENT SETBACKS.

SOME PROPERTIES HAVE WHAT WE CALL DEVELOPMENT ZONE AND SO THAT IS BASICALLY THE AREA

[02:05:02]

THAT IS ONLY ALLOWED TO HAVE HARD SURFACE, EXCEPT FOR OF COURSE, THE DRIVEWAY TO THE STREET.

AND THEN THERE IS A BUILDING ZONE, THAT IS WHERE YOU CAN ONLY HAVE YOUR BUILDING.

NOW, THE DEVELOPMENT ZONE IS DIFFERENT THAN A NORMAL BUILDING SETBACK BECAUSE YOU CANNOT HAVE YOUR POOL PAST THAT DEVELOPMENT SETBACK.

THIS POOL PROPOSED POOL ENCROACHES ABOUT FOUR FEET, IT RANGES FROM AN ENCROACHMENT OF FOUR FEET TO TEN FEET, DEPENDING ON THE AREA BECAUSE OF THE REAR PROPERTY LINE HAVING THIS SLANT IN IT.

ACCESS IS DOWN THIS SIDE.

AS INDICATED EARLIER, I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT SETBACK.

THESE ARE SET WHEN THE LAND IS DEVELOPED.

YOU CAN SEE HERE ON THIS PROPERTY.

IT HAS TO BE FREE OF ALL HARD SCAPE AND THIS POOL OF COURSE ENCROACHES INTO THAT AREA.

HERE IS THE DEFINITION OF THAT.

IT MUST BE FREE OF ALL HARD SCAPE.

CLOSER UP VIEW OF THE SURVEY SO YOU CAN SEE THE AMOUNT OF THE POOL THAT WOULD BE LOCATED IN THAT AREA.

AND THE DECKING.

HERE IS YOUR POOL PLANS.

YOUR DRAINAGE AND THE WAY THE LOT WATER FLOWS ON THE LOT.

HERE IS YOUR ELEVATION FOR THE POOL.

HERE IS A SLIGHT GRADE DOWN.

NATURAL.

LITTLE FALL THERE.

THERE IS A FRONT VIEW OF THE HOME.

RIGHT AND LEFT SIDES.

ALSO WANT TO MENTION THAT DUE TO CORONAVIRUS, OUR EMPLOYEES HAVEN'T BEEN GOING OUT TO PROPERTIES AND WE'RE RELYING ON SOME OLD PHOTOS AND THEN THE HOMEOWNERS ARE ACTUALLY GOING OUT AND TAKING THE PHOTOS THAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT FOR THEIR PROJECTS.

THIS IS THE POOL EQUIPMENT AREA.

THIS IS THE REAR CORNER, LOOKING TOWARD WHERE THE POOL EQUIPMENT WOULD BE.

AND THE POOL AREA.

THIS IS THE BACK OF THE HOUSE.

THIS WOULD BE THE LOCATION OF THE POOL.

YOU SEE THIS ORANGE LINE RIGHT HERE.

THAT WOULD BE THE OUTLINE OF THE POOL, WHICH WOULD BE PAST OUR SETBACK LINE HERE.

I MEAN, OUR DEVELOPMENT LINE.

ON THE RIGHT SIDE, OR THE LEFT SIDE OF THE PROPERTY.

LOOKING TOWARD THIS AREA, THERE ARE TWO LARGE TREES THAT WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED.

DUE TO OUR STANDARDS, ONE WOULD HAVE TO BE REPLACED WITH A 45â€'GALLON AND ONE WITH A 30â€'GALLON.

20â€'INCH.

AND THE 12â€'INCH.

ANOTHER VIEW OF THE TREES.

AND YOU CAN SEE THERE IS A LOT OF VEGETATION BETWEEN THE TWO PROPERTIES HERE.

AND THEN OF COURSE, IT BACKS UP TO THE GOLF COURSE, SO YOU CAN SEE THAT BACK HERE.

AND THAT IS THE RIGHT SIDE.

AND TO THE REAR.

ANOTHER VIEW OF THE REAR AND JUST AS A REMINDER ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT, THE ZONE OR SETBACK.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> COMMENT ABOUT THE POOL EQUIPMENT.

WILL IT NEED SCREENING?

>> YEAH.

THE STANDARDS REQUIRE SCREENING IF THERE IS A ROD IRON FENCE.

THAT IS JUST IN THERE SO WE DON'T FORGET TO PUT THAT IN THE CONDITIONS.

>> THANK YOU.

>> WHAT HAS BEEN OUR HISTORY ON ENCROACHMENT INTO THE DEVELOPMENT SETBACK?

>> WE'VE ONLY HAD A HANDFUL OF THESE.

AND I CAN SAY PROBABLY THE LAST TWO THAT WE HAVE DONE WERE ALLOWED TO HAVE A VARIANCE FOR SOME ENCROACHMENT INTO THAT AREA.

I THINK IT'S MAINLY BECAUSE IT BACKS UP TO A GOLF COURSE AND THE FACT THAT IT'S A POOL, IT'S LOW, IT'S NOT HIGH, IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A LOT OF IMPACT, VISIBILITY TO THE GOLF COURSE AREA.

>> OKAY.

ANYBODY HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> ALL RIGHT.

YOU SAID THE HOMEOWNER'S ON THE LINE?

>> I BELIEVE SO.

LET ME CHECK FOR YOU.

HELLO, IS THE HOMEOWNER AT 38 PLAYER POINT?

[02:10:02]

>> YES, IT IS.

THIS IS SCOTT WEATHER HOLT.

>> ISN'T YOUR CONTRACTOR HERE TOO?

>> HE IS.

>> AND IS THIS ROB?

>> YES, IT IS.

>> OKAY.

SO I HAVE YOU BOTH ONLINE.

THE HOMEOWNER WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO FIRST?

>> SURE.

FIRST, I WANT TO THANK THE COMMITTEE FOR GIVING US THE TIME TO SPEAK WITH YOU TODAY.

YOU GUYS HAVE DONE A LOT OF WORK TODAY.

I CAN ATTEST TO THAT.

YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT WE ARE MOVING TO TEXAS, THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME DOWN HERE, AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR KIDS COULD GET WAS A POOL.

I THINK I PUT IN OUR APPLICATION, OUR OLDEST SON IS A SPECIAL NEEDS KID AND ONE OF THE REASONS THAT WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA I GUESS HARD SCAPING ON THE FRONT, COMING OUT OF THE HOUSE SO THAT HE HAS ENOUGH ROOM TO TRANSITION FROM THE HOUSE TO THE POOL.

AND USE THAT FOR THERAPY AND OTHER REASONS AS WELL.

WHEN WE BOUGHT THE HOME, OBVIOUSLY WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT SETBACK, ALL THAT WE SAW ON OUR SURVEY WAS THE UTILITY EASEMENTS.

I LOOKED TO THE HOUSES TO THE NORTH AND SOUTH OF ME, BOTH OF THEM HAD POOLS, I DIDN'T THINK THERE WOULD BE AN ISSUE.

I'M GLAD THAT ROB SUBMITTED OUR PERMIT PAPERWORK SO THAT WE COULD HAVE THE COMMITTEE CONSIDER THIS FOR OUR VARIANCE REQUEST.

>> ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

DOES YOUR CONTRACTOR WANT TO SAY ANYTHING?

>> YEAH.

I WOULD JUST ADD THAT IN THIS DESIGN, AS YOU CAN SEE, I MEAN, WE'VE TRIED NOT TO CROWD THE HOUSE AND KEEP THINGS PROPORTIONAL AND WE HAVE KEPT THINGS VERY CONSERVATIVE, THE BACK COLUMNS ON THE POOL ARE ONLY RAISED NINE INCHES.

YOU CAN SEE WE'VE STAYED QUITE A WAYS OFF OF THE TEN FOOT EASEMENT, IN ORDER TO GET SOMETHING KEEPING WITH THE HOME.

IF WE RESPECT THIS 25â€'FOOT SETBACK, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A POOL CRAMMED IN UP CLOSE TO A HOUSE AND WE WOULD NEVER APPROACH A DESIGN THAT WAY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE WE WOULD DO FROM A DESIGN STANDPOINT THAT WOULD BE TASTEFUL.

WE'RE NOT ASKING FOR ANY ELEVATED STRUCTURES OR FIREPLACES.

OTHER THAN THAT, I'M JUST HERE TO, IF THE COMMITTEE HAS ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS REGARDING THE DESIGN OR CONSTRUCTION OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER.

>> ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

DOES THE COMMITTEE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> COMMENTS, GUYS?

>> I THINK THE RECOMMENDED MOTION IS A GOOD BALANCE.

IN LIGHT OF WHAT WE'VE HEARD PRESENTED.

>> ROBERT, IS THERE ANY ISSUE OF GOING INTO THAT SETBACK?

>> I'M SORRY.

ARE YOU ADDRESSING ME, THE POOL BUILDER?

>> NO.

SORRY.

>> IS ROBERT STILL ON?

>> HE'S MUTED.

>> OH.

>> I HAD TO EXCUSE MYSELF.

SO GO ON WITHOUT ME ON THIS ONE.

>> ALL RIGHT.

>> HAVE WE EVER APPROVED SOMETHING THAT IS IN THAT DEVELOPMENT BACK?

>> WE HAVE APPROVED A COUPLE OF POOLS.

>> OKAY.

>> YEAH.

IF I COULD INTERJECT, IF YOU LOOK AT BOTH POOLS, ON THE LEFT AND RIGHT OF SCOTT'S HOME, YOU KNOW, THIS ISN'T ANYTHING TECHNICAL, BUT YOU CAN CLEARLY MEASURE FROM GOOGLE EARTH THAT THESE POOLS ARE IN THAT 25â€'FOOT SETBACK.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE COMMITTEE HAS THAT INFORMATION OR IF THAT HAS BEEN DISCUSSED.

THERE'S SEVERAL AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD, IF YOU JUST LOOK AT JUST GOLF COURSE LOTS AS WELL, THAT LOOK LIKE THEY'RE IN THAT 25â€'FOOT SETBACK.

THAT IS ALL.

>> YEAH.

I KNOW.

SOMETIMES, THOUGH, THERE IS THAT CAVEAT, THEY MIGHT BE IN THERE BUT THEY WEREN'T APPROVED TO BE IN THERE.

>> I BELIEVE IN THIS CASE, I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY YEARS AGO, BUT SOME OF THESE WERE APPROVED BEFORE THEY CAME TO THE TOWNSHIP BY THE DEVELOPER.

AND THEN OF COURSE SOME OF THEM CAME AND GOT A VARIANCE.

>> THEY WERE APPROVED WHEN THEIR HOUSE WAS BEING BUILT.

>> OKAY.

ARTHUR, DIDN'T YOU MAKE THE MOTION FOR THE RECOMMENDED MOTION?

>> YES.

I PROPOSED A RECOMMENDED MOTION.

I THINK WHAT HELPS IN THIS CASE IS THAT THE GOLF COURSE IS ON THE BACK OF THIS.

[02:15:04]

AND IT'S NOT A STRUCTURE AND IT'S A POOL.

SO IT'S A LOW LEVEL IMPROVEMENT.

>> ALL RIGHT.

IS THERE A SECOND?

>> I'LL SECOND IT.

>> ALL RIGHT.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SAY AYE.

>> OKAY.

SO THAT MOTION WAS TO CONDITIONALLY APPROVE IT.

MUST REPLANT ONE 30â€'GALLON AND ONE 45â€'GALLON NATIVE TREE ADDITIONALLY, EVER GREEN SCREENING MUST BE PLANTED TO THE REAR AND RIGHT SIDE AND USUALLY WE REQUIRE AT LEAST SEVEN FEET TALL AT THE TIME OF PLANTING.

MUST BE NATIVE.

STAFF TO REVIEW UPON COMPLETION TO DETERMINE IF IT'S SUFFICIENT VEGETATION.

THE POOL EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE SCREENED, IF IT'S VISIBLE TO THE STREET OR ADJACENT PROPERTIES.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE BUILDING A FENCE OR SOMETHING TO SCREEN IT, THEN THAT IS A SEPARATE APPLICATION.

MUST MEET CODE AND PASS INSPECTION.

>> WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> OKAY.

I BELIEVE WE HAVE ONE MORE THAT WE SKIPPED OVER.

>> PART OF THE LIGHTNING ROUND.

>> THERE IS JUST ONE.

[Item X 10]

I BELIEVE THAT WAS ITEM NUMBER 10, WHICH IS SHASTA.

TWO ITEMS. WE WERE ON 12.

HERE WE GO.

38 NORTH SHASTA BEND.

THIS IS A PATIO COVER THAT IS IN THE SETBACK.

HERE WE GO.

AND WAIT A MINUTE.

YES.

IT'S IN THE VILLAGE OF CREEK SIDE PARK.

ALSO, WE DID RECEIVE FROM THE HOMEOWNER THEY MENTIONED THAT THE HOUSE FOUR DOORS DOWN RECEIVED A VARIANCE FOR A PATIO COVER ALSO.

AND I BELIEVE, I THINK THERE IS ANOTHER STRUCTURE ON THE PROPERTY TO THE RIGHT OF THIS.

HOWEVER, THAT IS A PERGOLA, WHICH COMPLIES WITH THE STANDARDS, YOU CAN SEE IN THE AERIAL PHOTO.

AND THIS IS THE SURVEY OF THE PROPERTY.

HERE IS THE PROPOSED PATIO COVER.

WITH THE SUMMER KITCHEN.

IT'S ABOUT 14, CLOSE TO 14 AND A HALF FEET HIGH.

IT'S ABOUT 688 SQUARE FEET ADDITIONAL HARD SURFACE AREA.

AND THERE IS ABOUT 54 SQUARE FOOT OUTDOOR BAT INCLUDED WITH THAT.

AND A SUMMER KITCHEN.

YOU CAN SEE CLOSER UP VIEW OF THAT PROPOSED PLAN IN HERE.

I BELIEVE THAT IS THE BATHROOM RIGHT THERE.

HERE IS YOUR PUZZLE.

>> YOUR PLANS.

YOU SEE THE KITCHEN AND THE BATHROOM.

FLOORPLANS.

PRETTY SIMPLE.

YOU HAVE YOUR ROOF.

YOUR ELEVATIONS.

THIS IS THE VIEW FROM THE POOL AREA.

SO THE REAR, OTHER ELEVATIONS.

THIS IS WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE.

THIS IS YOUR FACADE.

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES.

HERE IS YOUR SUMMER KITCHEN PLANS.

AND YOUR RESTROOM PLANS.

YOUR ELEVATION IS VERY SIMPLE.

THAT IS YOUR ROOF STRUCTURE.

AND THAT IS JUST YOUR DIMENSIONS.

AND YOUR STRUCTURAL SLAB.

WHICH IS STAMPED BY AN ENGINEER.

THIS IS THE FRONT VIEW OF THE HOME.

AND THESE PHOTOS WERE SUBMITTED BY THE HOMEOWNER.

SO THE PATIO COVER WOULD BE OVER HERE, OFF THE SCREEN.

BUT I THINK THEY WANTED TO INDICATE THAT THERE IS A STRUCTURE RIGHT HERE.

AT THE 20â€'FOOT.

AND THAT WOULD BE THAT PERGOLA THAT I MENTIONED BEFORE THAT I SHOWED YOU IN THE AERIAL PHOTO.

IT'S THE SAME THING.

AND THAT IS THE FENCE LINE.

AND I BELIEVE THEY'RE JUST SHOWING YOU THAT LOCATION OF THE STORED.

AND THEN ALSO THAT THERE IS A POOL ON THE ADJACENT PROPERTY IN THIS AREA.

BUT OF COURSE, YOU KNOW THAT POOLS ARE ALLOWED TO BE PAST A SETBACK, THIS IS NOT A

[02:20:01]

DEVELOPMENT SETBACK, THIS IS A REGULAR SETBACK.

THIS IS A LOCATION OF THE PROPOSED PATIO COVER, THE BATH WOULD BE HERE AND THE SUMMER KITCHEN WOULD BE THIS AREA HERE.

ANOTHER VIEW OF THAT AREA.

AND THIS IS THE SIDE IMPACT.

ANOTHER CLOSEâ€'UP VIEW OF THAT SIDE IMPACT.

THIS IS THE VIEW TO THE RIGHT SIDE.

A LOT OF NATIVE EVERGREENS.

THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAVE ANY IMPACT TO THAT PROPERTY.

SO MAINLY THE IMPACT WOULD BE TO THAT ADJACENT NEIGHBOR TO THE LEFT AND TO THE REAR, WHICH I BELIEVE IS WATER, HERE IS YOUR REAR IMPACT.

CLOSER UP VIEW.

YOU CAN SEE THE ORANGE LINES, THAT IS JUST THE OUTLINE.

THESE LINES ARE ON THE GROUND, THEY'VE BEEN PAINTED ON THE GROUND SO YOU CAN SEE THE LOCATION OF THAT PATIO COVER.

AND THIS IS A PHOTO OF 14 MARIN CREEK WHICH IS DOWN THE ROAD THAT RECEIVED A VARIANCE IN 2011.

NOW, THIS ONE HAS THAT SORT OF FLAT ROOF, WITH A LOWER DEGREE, WHICH ACTUALLY, THE STANDARDS NOW, IF THIS WAS A 10Â PERCENT DEGREE WOULD BE ALLOWED IN THIS AREA.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> IS THE HOMEOWNER ONLINE?

>> I DID NOT SEE ANY OTHER PEOPLE.

NO.

I DO NOT HAVE ANY OTHER PEOPLE WAITING.

>> DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS?

>> NO.

>> NO, SIR.

>> WHAT ABOUT THE SIZE?

>> GO BACK TO THE PLAN SO YOU CAN SEE THAT.

>> HOW TALL IS IT?

>> IT IS, OH, SHOOT.

I THOUGHT I SAID IT WAS 14, YEAH, 14.4 SOMETHING.

I CAN'T READ IT.

I'M SORRY.

IT'S TOO SMALL FOR MY EYES.

14.46.

IT'S 36.9Â FEET LONG, 18.66Â FEET WIDE.

IT HAS 688 SQUARE FEET OF HARD SURFACE AND ROOF AREA.

THE BATHROOM IS A SMALL BATHROOM, 54 SQUARE FEET.

40â€'FOOT SETBACK BECAUSE IT'S ON THE WATER.

>> NO COMPLAINTS FROM NEIGHBORS?

>> WE DID NOT RECEIVE ANY NEIGHBOR RESPONSE.

SO ARE THERE OTHERS THAT ARE WITHIN THE SETBACK?

>> WELL, THOSE TWO THAT I MENTIONED.

ONE IS NEXT DOOR, BUT IT WAS A PERGOLA, SO IT'S ALLOWED TO BE IN THE SETBACK.

AND THEN THE ONE FOUR DOORS DOWN, WHICH WAS APPROVED IN 2011.

>> YOU'RE SAYING THAT THE FLAT ROOF SHOULD NOT EXCEED TEN DEGREE SLOPE?

>> CORRECT.

THAT IS WHAT OUR STANDARDS, SAY THAT WAS ONE OF THE CHANGES YOU MADE IN THE STANDARDS LAST YEAR.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU.

>> SO ON THE NEIGHBORING PROPERTIES, DOES THE SLOPE ROOF IMPEDE VIEWS OBVIOUSLY OR NOT?

>> ON THAT VARIANCE ONE?

>> NO.

NO.

IF THIS ROOF WERE BUILT LIKE THAT, VERSUS A FLAT ROOF, DOES THIS IMPEDE A VIEW FROM A NEIGHBORING PROPERTY OUT ON TO THE WATER, LAKE AREA OR NOT?

>> WELL, I WOULD ASSUME SO.

LET'S GO BACK TO THIS SIDE IMPACT VIEW.

IT IS NOT A FLAT ROOF.

>> ON ONE SIDE, YOU HAVE THE NEIGHBOR CAN'T SEE INTO THE YARD ANY WAY THERE.

>> I THINK THIS IS YOUR BEST VIEW.

SO IT WOULD START BACK HERE AT THIS CORNER WHERE THE HOUSE IS AND THEN RUN DOWN

[02:25:02]

TO ABOUT HERE, TWO OR 3Â FEET PAST THE LEGS OF THIS TRAMPOLINE.

SO THERE IS SOME VEGETATION HERE.

THEY DO HAVE A SECOND FLOOR, SO THAT IS NOT REALLY GOING TO IMPACT THAT VIEW.

AND WHATEVER WINDOW IS HERE WAS ALREADY SCREENED BY THIS VEGETATION.

>> IS THAT LIKE A PORCH?

>> YES, IT'S AN OPEN PORCH.

>> I DON'T THINK THE SLOPED TILE ROOF TO ME IS A PROBLEM.

>> OKAY.

>> THOSE ARE BIG LOTS.

AND I THINK THE VIEW IS STRAIGHT OUT, NOT DIAGONALLY ACROSS THE LOTS.

>> IT WOULD BASICALLY BE LIKE THIS STRUCTURE JUST CAME FORWARD ALL THE WAY TO THAT TRAMPOLINE.

>> IT'S NOT REALLY THAT BAD BECAUSE YOU'RE REALLY LOOKING STRAIGHT OUT AND THE SIDES, BOTH SIDES HAVE A CERTAIN LEVEL OF SCREENING.

SO THEY'RE NOT LOOKING CROSS INTO THAT YARD TO LOOK AT THE WATER AND THE OTHER STRUCTURES ON BOTH SIDES HAVE SECOND FLOORS THAT YOU CAN LOOK OUT FROM THE SECOND FLOOR.

>> YEAH.

>> UNIMPEDED.

>> I GUESS THE ONLY OTHER CONCERN THAT I HAVE IS THAT MUCH SQUARE FOOTAGE.

>> THEY DRAIN STRAIGHT BACK PROBABLY TO THE WATER.

>> IT APPEARS THAT EVERYONE HAS GOT GUTTERS HERE.

>> SO THAT THEY WOULD DRAIN TO THE BACK MAYBE.

>> THEY ALL DO.

>> THEY HAVE GUTTERS NOW.

LIKE I SAID, PROBABLY MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE AS PRESENTED EXCEPT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A DRAINAGE PLAN.

>> I WOULD SECOND THAT MOTION.

>> DID YOU WANT TO HAVE STAFF TO REVIEW UPON COMPLETION TO DETERMINE IF THERE IS ANY ADDITIONAL VEGETATION NEEDED.

>> YES.

>> BEFORE WE VOTE, NES, JUST THE LAST QUESTION, WILL THIS STRUCTURE HAVE GUTTERS TO IT? IS THERE ANY INDICATION OF THAT?

>> I DON'T KNOW.

I CAN'T RECALL OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD.

>> ONLY BECAUSE MARY POINTED THAT OUT.

IT WAS A GOOD OBSERVATION.

>> IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT FROM THERE, THOUGH.

>> THAT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT.

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT.

>> IF THEY DO A DRAINAGE PLAN, I MEAN, GENERALLY GUTTERS ARE MORE OF A PROBLEM THAN A SOLUTION.

BUT THE DRAINAGE WORKS WITHOUT GUTTERS, THEN PROBABLY BETTER NOT TO PUT THEM ON THERE.

>> SO THE DRAINAGE PLAN WILL PROBABLY COVER THAT.

>> RIGHT.

>>.

>> I BELIEVE THAT IS ALL OF THE ITEMS THAT I HAVE FOR THE COMMITTEE.

>> MOVING TO ITEM 11, MEMBERS COMMENTS.

>> ARTHUR, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING?

>> YEAH.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE COMMITTEE THAT WE HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE TO RESTART THE

[Items XI & XIII]

RDRC, WHICH ARE ELECTED BY THE RESIDENTS.

I THINK THAT IS A GOOD STEP FORWARD AND CONTINUES TO SUPPORT RDRCS.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK STAFF FOR ADDITIONAL WORK THAT THEY'VE TAKEN ON THROUGH THIS COVIDâ€'19 PERIOD THAT WE'RE GOING THROUGH.

THAT WOULD BE ALL OF MY COMMENTS, SIR.

>> YOU GUYS CAN THANK HER NOW.

>> THERE IS A BIG CHECK COMING.

>> NO, SIR.

THANK YOU.

>> JOHN ANDERSON.

>> NO.

>> JOHN ANTHONY.

>> I JUST HAD ONE, I WASN'T HERE LAST WEEK.

[02:30:04]

I WANT TO WELCOME MARY TO THE BOARD.

AND APPRECIATE HER BEING HERE.

>> THANK YOU.

>> YOU'RE WELCOME.

>> THANK YOU, SIR.

>> MARY, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING?

>> WE'RE OUT EARLY.

WE WERE HERE LATE LAST TIME.

>> I THOUGHT WE WOULD BE THROUGH EARLIER THAN THIS TONIGHT.

I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE THAT WENT WRONG.

MY FAULT.

I OWN UP TO IT.

>> THAT'S ALL RIGHT.

I DON'T HAVE ANY COMMENTS.

STAFF HAVE ANYTHING?

>> I DO NOT.

>> DOES ANYBODY ELSE?

>> I DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING.

>> OKAY.

THANK YOU.

>> ALL RIGHT.

HAVE A MOTION TO ADJOURN.

>> SO MOVED.

>> WE'RE ADJOURNED.

EVERYBODY BE SAFE.
