Old Business:

 

  1. UBL# 1-59-45, Jeff Haught, 18 Tetilla Road, with plan for an addition to the exiting garage and adding new garage with Variance request. The plans for the expansion of the exiting garage were approved as there are no compliance issues.  Relative to the variance request for the new separate garage plans, the resident came back with the requested changes and added a compliant connecting feature of a wall.  There is still a variance request to allow for the garage to be located 30 feet from the home and the Committee feels that this variance request is justified due to the elevation difference on the lot, and that this distance from the home is required for cars to turn around there is a required for cars to turn around.  The Committee is recommending approval of this variance request to the ECIA Board.  The variance portion of the project will be reviewed by the ECIA board at their February 18th working session.  

 

NEW PLANS FOR REVIEW:

 

 

  1. UBL # 1-60-12, Treva Jenkins, 13 Tetilla Road, with plans for a new home. Due to the fact that one area of the new home will be more than 18 feet above the natural grade, a variance is required and this will be heard by the ECIAI board at the February 18th Board Meeting. The Architecture Committee is recommending approval of this variance request due to the fact that the home is on a sloping lot and actually it will be 18 feet tall at the highest point from the revised grade and will not be impactful on the neighbors.   The variance portion of the project will be reviewed by the ECIA board at their February 18th working session

 

  1. UBL # 3-13-27, Gretchen Korzak, 11 Valencia Loop, with plans for a Fenced enclosure that was built of steel posts and wire. With no issues these plans were approved with the following stipulations:

Other Business: 

   

  1. The Committee discussed the issue of their involvement in the Earth Day Events at the ECIA and they are not pleased with the fact this event is being held on a week day which they feel is not very inclusionary and that it should be held on a Saturday when working people and children can attend. Chair Katherine Mortimer moved to make a motion and statement to the ECIA Board regarding the Committees’ opinion of the  poor timing of this event and the importance of holding it and other similar events on a Saturday, so as to be inclusionary of all residents.  This motion was seconded by Gary Moran and all in attendance agreed. Board Liaison, Bernardo Monserrat agreed to discuss this issue at the next Board Meeting.
  2. The Committee then worked to finalize their 2018 Annual Report at this meeting and mostly updated their accomplishments in 2018 and their goals for 2019.
  3. Mark Young informed the committee that he could not attend the April 9th meeting, due to being out of town, and all agreed that we could move up the 1st meeting in April to April 2nd instead and this will be noted on the website.
