5000 Clubside Road
 
Review proposed plans for a new entrance site wall and entry signage at the Richmond and Meadow Wood and Clubside entrances to Hawken School.
 
James Duber, Studio Techne Architects, representing Hawken School, presented the Board with proposed plans for brick and stone site walls to be erected at Richmond Road, and Meadow Wood Boulevard and Clubside Road. He stated that in the center of the proposed brick and stone wall will be a limestone signage piece which reads "Hawken School;" the proposed materials to be used will match the exterior of the school buildings. He further stated that the proposed site walls will be landscaped. He also stated that the signage will be illuminated.
 
In answer to Mr. Kunz's question, Mr. Duber stated that all proposed signage will be on private property, back from the right of way.
 
In answer to Councilman Ward's question regarding removal of existing shrubbery and brush, Mr. Duber stated that minimal foliage will be removed, just enough for the proposed site walls to be placed. He also stated that more will be removed at the corner of Clubside and Richmond because the foliage extends past the right of way.
 
Councilman Ward stated his concern for the removal of so much foliage at the corner of Clubside and Richmond Roads.
 
Mr. Duber stated there will be at least twenty (20) feet of foliage and trees remaining beyond what will be removed. He further stated he will take into consideration the screening of the neighbors' properties, and reassured the Board that a minimal amount, if any, of mature trees will be removed, in the area of Clubside and Richmond Roads.
 
Mayor Cicero stated that the proposed site walls are a good visual advertisement for Hawken School.
 
It was moved by Councilman Ward, seconded by Mr. Tamerlano, that the proposed plans for a new entrance site wall and entry signage at the Richmond, Meadow Wood and Clubside entrances to Hawken School be approved as submitted.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.

Mr. Kunz explained that the original plan was brought before the Planning Commission in 2006, and approved by the Planning Commission and Council. He further explained that the owner, Mr. Aveni, had recently requested and was granted an amendment to the plan to allow duplexes.
 
Mr. Kluchin then presented colors and materials to be used on the duplex; asphalt roofing shingles, cultured stone, vinyl siding and trim will be used. He further stated that this duplex will be the model, and not all the single family homes or the duplexes will look alike. He then stated one unit is about three thousand two hundred (3,200) square feet and the other is about two thousand six hundred (2,600) square feet.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question regarding the windows, Mr. Kluchin stated that all window trim will be white.
 
Mr. Kluchin stated one of the units has a screened in porch, the other a three (3) car garage.
 
In answer to Mr. Tamerlano's question, Mr. Kunz explained that under the Cluster Housing ordinance, the setbacks are forty (40) foot rear yard, twenty-five (25) foot front yard setback, and fifteen (15) feet between duplexes, and ten (10) feet between single family homes.
