Nicholson submitted a letter he wrote to the next door neighbor who objected to the application at the June 9th meeting. He stated that he had attempted to talk with her but she never came to her door. He even left a set of plans in her mailbox. The Commission felt Nicholson had made every reasonable attempt to resolve her issues, so Jones removed her objection and closed the matter. Nicholson briefly discussed the plans. A $2,000 street bond will be required.
