Motion to approve by:  Bob Maudlin    Seconded by:  Jerry Goodrich

Old Business:  Continued discussion on the width of a driveway.  

The Committee, with participation from Dan Tester and Dave Hafner who have broad experience as regards this issue, and after several efforts to create definitions and rules for driveways, concluded any efforts to do so would result in no satisfactory set of Rules that could be applied in a reasonable and manageable, standardized manner. Therefore the Committee unanimously agreed to not attempt to redefine or change existing relevant Bylaws and Rules.

New Business:  None
