Consideration of the minutes for the January 13, 2014 meeting.
There were no minutes for this meeting since there was not a quorum. Business could not be conducted.
Mr. Bill Zekas of The Gunnery stopped by for an informational explanation of the Gunnery's exterior artificial turf.
Mr. Zekas provided the members with a map showing the current location of artificial turf. The map was generated by Zoning Enforcement Officer Mike Ajello. Mrs. Boyer thanked Mr. Zekas for his courtesy in stopping by and providing information to the Commission. Mrs. Boyer explained that the Commission does not consider grass as a structure so there would be no oversight by the HDC.
Martha Shade, former Historic Commission Clerk, gave Jane Boyer a postcard that was mailed to Martha by a person who thought this would be of interest to the Historic Commission. The picture of the formal garden did not have a location printed on the card. Mrs. Boyer made the decision to give the postcard to the Washington Garden Club as they may have expertise in locating the garden pictured on the card.
To adjourn the meeting. By Mr. Hollinger.
Mrs. Boyer adjourned the meeting at 8:45 PM.
