  2. An application for a Variance or Certificate of Appropriateness by Janice Williams at 5816 Pioneers Court to install a 6 foot high wood fence along the north and east property line. Williams submitted written approval from the property owners that the fence will border and, therefore, no variance is required. The picket fence will be cedar. Williams referred to page III of her application and said number 2 (gate) was left off but should have been placed on the north side of the property next to the garage. There is an existing fence on the south side. Morris moved and Bierman seconded a motion to approve the application as submitted.

  3. An application for a Certificate of Appropriateness by Matt Cox and Maria Muratori at 5778 Crescent Court to replace a concrete slab walkway with pavers and install a paver patio on the southeast corner of the house. Cox made the presentation. The existing walkway is deteriorating pre-cast concrete and will be replaced with pavers to match the existing paver walkway at the front of the house. The paver patio will be approximately 440 sq. ft. and one side will have a 24” high seat wall with 36” high columns on each end. Damaged and diseased trees will be replaced. Bierman and Morris mentioned that some of the trees near the street have already been replaced twice that they knew of and he may want to look into a cause of their decline before planting new trees. Also, Cox was cautioned about planting within the setback and too close to the street because of visibility and safety issues. The Commissioner also said a street bond would not be required as long as the materials are hand carried and machinery will not be used to drive over the curbs. Cox agreed. Jacob moved and Griffith seconded a motion to approve the application as presented. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 5; Bierman, Griffith, Jacob, Morris and Jones: Nay, None. The Motion carried 5-0.
  4. An application for a Certificate of Appropriateness by Jon and Lisa Ankrom at 114 West Riverglen Drive to install a paver patio at the back of the house. Jon Ankrom gave the presentation. The original paver patio was removed a couple of years ago for an addition and the pavers were saved. They will be using those pavers as well additional pavers to match. A recessed spa will be added on the west side of the house and a limestone seat wall will be added along one side of a circular pattern patio. Low wattage lighting will be used in trees (up and down lighting), along the path and in the seat wall. There was a discussion regarding the size and height of new shrubs. No heavy machinery will be used since the access to the back is limited. Griffin moved and Bierman seconded a motion to approve the application as submitted. The Commissioner cautioned Ankrom to maintain the shrubs less than 48” high. The following vote was recorded on the motion: Yea, 5; Bierman, Griffith, Jacob, Morris and Jones: Nay, None. The Motion carried 5-0.
