The motion carried 5-0. George Cleary made the presentation. A landscape plan was submitted and more information was provided regarding the water line. Because the water line crosses their property to the adjacent neighbor (130 W. Southington Ave), they will be replacing the line and creating a new easement that will be recorded. They have discussed this with the neighbor and she is aware of the possible interruption of her water for a short time. Morris expressed concern for the survival of the silver maple tree from the construction. VanAman stated she would probably plant another shade tree if that one died.

The two additions are in character with the rest of the house. All materials and color will match existing.
