Councilman Brown thanked everyone for attending meeting. He stated he was not aware of objections until Tuesday of the previous week. Mr. and Mrs. Phalen showed the completed drawings to the audience and stated that they are only asking for the same thing everyone else in the neighborhood already has…namely a second bathroom and a garage larger than a single car garage.

Lengthy discussion and participation by audience: Jack and Maggie Hamilton spoke in favor of project, Karen Sage, Chuck Laughlin, and Heidi Kaiser related their concern for parking in the cul de sac. Karen Sage stated that she thought the property should remain a two bedroom one bath residence.

Doug Ketron delivered a short talk on the history of how property, private and public, was allocated by a judge in the 1800’s. He also discussed “ministerial deviations” as compared to “variance” and explained the options that the City council has.

Michael Vasquez asked what are the options. Mrs. Phalen asked if the neighbors would be satisfied with a two car garage instead of the 1 ½ planned, but Karen Sage stated there were other issues.

Attorney Ethan Turner stated it would be onerous to include all neighbors in design decisions.

The Phalens stated they would apply for a variance.

Vasquez moved to adjourn the meeting, Brown 2nd, meeting adjourned
