Old Business: As the PUD chapter now stands, it’s open to abuse. We need to eliminate it or rewrite it.  
It was decided to rewrite it at the next meeting.

New Business: R. Zopf reported to the board that a new owner near Grinnell Circle, wants to build a  
storage building 50X56 ft. On the left is the former B&B. Asked if you can see the building? Answer,  
no, unless trees are cut down. The Zoning Plan states in “18.455 Harmony With Locality: That the  
variance requested shall not alter the essential character of the locality. In making this determination,  
the Board of Appeals shall be advised by the recommendation of the Zoning Commission.” B. Cony  
motioned that the zoning commission provide a variance request recommendation to BZA that is in  
harmony with the neighborhood. L. Parsons seconded with all saying aye. The motion passed. There  
will be a BZA meeting on December 13.
