  1. Mike & Donna Kinnett, Lot # 3292, 19174 Hampton Drive. Seeking a Variance to allow the installation of an 8’ X 12’ polyethylene shed, desert sand color.  A Variance is required because the homeowners need to locate the shed in the back yard in a location that extends beyond the Buildable Area. Being a corner lot, the buildable area is 10’ from the property lines. Having not yet decided the exact dimensions and location, the Committee Chairman asked them to make appropriate measurements and give better specifications before applying for a Variance. The Kinnett’s will complete their plans and apply for a Variance. 
  1. Notes from November 3rd meeting.  Justin & Elaine Guidroz, Lot# 470B/471H/472/473, 1348 Buckeye Court. Dave Hafner presented this project to install a 48’ X 8’ dock using Azek composite decking 40” X 90’ allan block classic seawall. Dave discussed with the Committee Members some issues with the existing Plot Plans for this series of lots involving some technical problems that require correcting. This application for a Permit is to be shelved until those issues can be addressed.  We have now received a new plot plan showing the structures on the new plot plan. The Architecture Committee found the requested actions were satisfactorily accomplished and signed the new Plot Plans. Signatures from the VRUC will be required.
