Mr. Greg Fountain paraphrased the minutes from the April 8, 2008 meeting. The minutes were approved with a change.

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

The first three cases were Lonnie King Construction Company, (2008-NAARB-006, 2008-NAARB-007, 2008-NAARB-008). Mr. Lonnie King represented the projects. The Board reviewed the proposed site plans. The Board had previously approved two single family residences, identical to these, with changes. Mr. Gaius Bruce made a motion to approve the projects with the same changes as required on the previous approvals:
· Change the number of columns in the front to 3, with windows spaced appropriately between the 3 columns
· Change the columns to round-tapered
· Add square louvers
· Change the vent on top of the gable to a rectangular shape

Ms. Joanne Connor seconded. The Board unanimously approved the project with the changes.

The next agenda was discussion of miscellaneous items. Mr. Joshua Dault provided the Board with a draft letter addressed to Mr. Bob Benaquis, owner of TC’s Front Porch, regarding staff’s determination of signage issues with the site. The Board was asked to review the letter and make any recommendations or changes. The Board determined that the pirate and mermaid located on the property are considered signage and therefore must be permitted as such, or moved to inside the restaurant. Mr. Dault indicated that he would change the letter accordingly.

The meeting adjourned at 3:45 p.m.
