- Robert Dick, Lot 3127, 1657 Fieldcrest, seeking a permit for construction of a new home. Represented by Norb Boh of Boh Construction, the original plans required a modification due to the limits on the allowable width of the home. The eaves of the home would extend beyond the 10’ side offset limits so to allow the issuing of the permit, the contractor agreed to construct the home without the left and right side overhangs. With that change in design, the Architecture Committee unanimously approved the issuing of a permit for the construction of the home which will have a first floor area of more than 1400 sq. ft., “Aspen White” siding, black trim, a charcoal colored shingle roof, and a concrete driveway with a 24” diameter culvert.
- Robert & Kelly Will, Lot 1149/1150H/1151, 20453 Meercham Way. Requesting a permit to install a 5’ X 25’ floating dock on lot #1149, which is a lakefront lot, and newly contiguated with their other two lots. The Architecture Committee unanimously approved the issuing of a permit.
- Ronald and Sally Rowland, Lot 1054H, 21347 Alpine Drive. Requested a 17’ variance on the rear setback for a shed; Letters were sent out to adjoining properties and everyone responded to letters. A sign was posted, Board of Directors approved the variance on 4/12/2023. The Architecture Committee unanimously approved the issuing of a permit to install the proposed 8’ X 12’ “Deluxe Cottage Shed”, light brown in color with white trim and a green metal roof.
- Michael and Stacey Palmer, Lot 1553H/1554/1555, 19799 Longview Drive. Requesting a 7’ variance on the rear setback for a built-in swimming pool, a 4’ high fence and a concrete patio. Letters were sent out to adjoining properties and everyone responded to those letters with approval. A sign was posted. The Board of Directors approved the variance on 4/12/2023. Final approval of a permit was unanimously granted by the Architecture Committee.
- Tim & Marcy Buechel, Lot 1144H, 20383 Meercham Way. Seeking a Permit to widen a single width driveway to a double width driveway by adding an 8’ X 34’ area of concrete. A parking pad, 30’ X 23’ (690 sq. ft.) paved with gravel, already exists at the road. They wish to expand a concrete area at the front of the house currently used as a turn-around for cars, to an area of 24’ X 17’, which would total another 408 sq. ft. The existing parking pads were in place when the home was purchased and are therefore grandfathered. The Architecture Committee unanimously approved the issuing of a permit for the widening of the driveway, but rejected the issuing of a permit for expanding the parking pad at the front of the home, siting the limits in the By Laws as the reason.
The following projects were AA approved and reviewed:
- Mark Casper, Lot 1327H, 20439 Longview Drive. A permit was issued for widening the driveway with asphalt and installing a 9’ culvert. This widening will not be considered a parking pad.
- Mark Keller, Lot 292H/293, 412 Hickory Road. Remove four 8” round columns and replace them with two 12” square columns made of aluminum or painted fiber cement board. Enclosed is an arched gable end with fiber cement board lap siding painted to coordinate with the existing trim. Building a “kicked eave” roof to gable end (as shown in picture of white house in Figure 3). Adding gutters. Enclosed barrel porch ceiling with false beam (as shown in the picture of a white house, Figure 3) and a flat painted ceiling. Remove the vinyl siding next to the doors and replace with it with painted cement board. Remove the arched transom and replace the doors.
- Anthony Ohlhaut, Lot 1001H/1002, 19417 Par Drive. Replacing siding with a color change from a light gray to a light sage green. The corner post will be a tan color.
- Mike Russell, Lot 1879/1880A, 1492 Aqua Vista Drive. Repainting house using the same tan color.
The following projects were approved by the Architecture Committee without a meeting:
- Stacey & Mike Palmer, Lot 1553H/1554/1555, 19799 Longview Drive. The Architecture Committee unanimously approved the issuing of a permit to install a 24’ X 8’ deck extension with a spiral staircase.
The following projects were approved after pins were located on property: None

Motion to approve by: Frank Goodrich Seconded by: Bob Maudlin
Old Business: None
New Business: Rule 4-11-7. a.) reads: When using concrete the concrete surface when poured shall be no closer than twelve (12) inches from the edge of the road surface. The gap between the road and concrete driveway shall be filled with asphalt.
Phil Heitz noted that same principle should also be applied whenever concrete is used to create a parking pad or other similar concrete structure, located at the edge of a road. The Committee Members present agreed that should be an applicable standard.
