Mr. Greg Fountain paraphrased the minutes from the May 9, 2006 meeting. Ms. Joanne Connor moved to accept the minutes. Mr. Gaius Bruce seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.

The board then moved on to consider individual cases on the agenda.

The first case was Bank of Pensacola, 2006-NAARB-008. Mr. Philip Partington presented this project. Mr. Fountain read an e-mail from Ms. Sarah Hernandez regarding this case. Ms. Hernandez’s e-mail suggested that the style presented did not match any approved style for the Heart of Navarre and that modifications should be made to the standard Bank of Pensacola design to fit the code. The board suggested that shutters be added, that a cast stone base be used, that a metal roof or metal elements be added to the tower, and that brackets or corbels be added to the tower. Mr. Bruce moved to approve the project with the changes and that the applicant is not required to resubmit plans to the board. Ms. Sharon Bryant seconded the motion. The project was approved as presented, with the changes.

The second item on the agenda was Baptist Medical Park Navarre, 2005-NAARB-003. Mr. George Koper presented this project. This was a modification to the original approved plans. The applicant is asking that the tower and awnings be deleted due to cost prohibitions. The board suggested a brick soldier course that matches the brick base or cast stone header be used to top the windows. Also, the board suggested that the two awnings at the entrance remain. Ms. Bryant moved to approve the project with the changes. Ms.
Shirley Brown seconded the motion. The project was approved as presented, with the changes.

Mr. Joshua Dault informed the board that Mr. Bart Pullum was the new owner of the Alpine Center and that he had submitted colors for repainting. Mr. Dault then showed the colors to the board and verified that approval may be given by Planning & Zoning for the repainting.

Then there was general discussion of a few sites/developments in the Heart of Navarre.

The meeting adjourned at 3:32 p.m.
