  1. Richard Reynolds, Lots# 1038/1039/1040H,1041, 21235 Alpine Drive. Seeking a Permit to build a detached 12’ wide X 20’ long X 10’ high cover over his parking pad installed parallel to his garage using 4 X 4 post, metal roof, colored green to match the garage.  Since the garage is a detached building, it is necessary to attach the added carport cover to the garage since there can be only one storage building on a property. Mr. Reynolds will change his design accordingly and resubmit it during a future meeting.
  1. Jason & Michele Schneider, Lots # 1588/1589, 1196 Monteray Circle. Needs to rebuild their existing 2 tier wooden deck with Timber Tech composite decking with cable rail, and add an additional 10’ X10’ section of deck on back left corner of the upper deck.  The existing lower deck will also be rebuilt and a 10’ X 14’ section of deck will be added to that level. The Architecture Committee unanimously approved the issuing of a Permit for the project.
  1. Rich Naltner, Lot # 2122H, 20797 Alpine Drive. The request for a variance for additional parking pad was withdrawn. Mr. Naltner determined the extra parking pad was not needed. To remedy the issues created by the added gravel, the area will be landscaped by adding large rocks, bushes, and adding a border. No permit is required for the landscaping work. The Bond that was on hold will be listed for approval for return at the next POA Board Meeting

ApproveArchitecture Meeting Minutes for October 18, 2023.

Motion to approve by:  Alan Kohlhaas        Seconded by:  Frank Goodrich

Old Business:  None

New Business:  The Compliance Officer introduced the topic of individuals, investors and contractors purchasing homes with the intention of remodeling or improving them for resale. In some cases there is a problem with non-permitted work and other violations of the HVL Bylaws. After discussion, it was decided those issues should be dealt with in the same manner used for correcting similar situations that occur when Community Members and Property owners violate those same Bylaws.
