DISCUSSION

Bobbie relayed that she called the discussed three candidates for HPAC.  Of the three, one could not be reached by telephone; another was busy with work and family.  Harry Williams showed extreme enthusiasm.  He was to fax his resume to Fred Carr.  Secretary will inquire if this was received.  She also addressed the alternates issue with Fred, questioning if an employee could be appointed as an alternate.  Fred did state that there is nothing written regarding this issue and concurred that it is fine to have this happen. 

Bobbie had a conversation with the homeowner of 42 North Main Street regarding the aluminum siding.  HPAC, as a whole does not favor the removal of aluminum siding and replacing with vinyl.  She suggested that removing the siding one side per year and repair could be an option.  After viewing the file photo, it was stated that the front porch portico should not be wrapped in any type of material, this would also hold true for the trim under the eves.  Application has not been received for this project.

Diane returned the draft district maps after having them scaled in size and reproduced for the upcoming March 19 potluck dinner. 

An article will be submitted for the next newsletter.  This article will give a brief summary of the new ordinance and the changes that it includes.
