Old Business: 
1. UBL # 2-19-03, Freida Claes, 48 Alondra Road, with a varaince request for a wall to encroach 13 feet into the 50 foot roadside setback. The Committee had done a site visit and they concluded that they could recommend approval of the variance since it could be considered a driveway liner (which is an acceptable structure to encroach into the setback).   Additionally this wall will supplement an existing driveway liner wall that has existed with further encroachment into the setback for more than  10 years.    The committee voted unanimously to recommend approval of this variance to the ECIA Board.

7. UBL#1-29-24, Allison Cartwright, 13 Estambre Road, with plans for a  New Home. These plans were approved with the conditions that the applicant should come back to the ECIA with the following  docs: 1.  Detail of roofing plans.  2.  Updated site plan showing distances to property lines.   3.  Confirmation of approved ECIA stucco color they choose.

9. UBL# 1-49-15,    Rick and Karen Roberts, 3 Estambre Place, with a varaince request to allow for replacing an old wooden fence with a stucco block wall what will encroach into the 20 foot side setback by 2 feet 5 inches. Due to the fact that the original wall did not receive ECIA variance approval for the encroachment, the Committee voted that a variance was needed for this improvement and they could support it as the wall has existed for over 10 years, and not approving the varaince would require removal of mature trees and plants. Lastly the  committee felt that this was an improvement to  the property and was not contrary to the intent of the Covenants.
