Talked to architect about drainage on property and they determined to install a french drain along building (classroom) and drainage along parking, he recommended no additional drainage due to the fact that they are not paving the parking and since they don’t have a current drainage problem. Mr. Straub felt that was ok.

Mrs. Ahl noticed on plan that a note said to use stockade fence when they are actually planning to use the natural vegetation for screening, they will remove that note

Applicant will add waivers to the final plan. They are requesting waivers to reduce the parking from 52 to 25 spaces and to allow applicant to have 1-4 temporary parking spaces by the office without adding a buffer towards the road.

Mr. Gove made a motion to accept request of reduction of permanent parking spaces from 52 to 25 (27 overflow spaces will also exist), second by Mr. Straub. VOTE: 5-0

Mr. Straub made a motion to accept request to remove requirement for a buffer to temporary parking spaces 1-4 for sight distance preservation, second by Mr. Gove. VOTE 5-0

Mr Straub made a motion to find application complete, with the note that board determined a drainage erosion control plan is not necessary due to changes in draining pattern on property, second by Mr. Gove. VOTE 5-0

Mr. Steinhauer asked about operating hours. Mrs. Ahl stated that it would be 7 am to 10 pm, Mr. Straub asked that hours be noted on final plan.
