Review proposed plans to add additional surface parking.
 
Mr. Milanich reviewed the proposed plans for additional parking and stated that the additional lot would look better than what currently exists.
 
In answer to Mr. Milanich's question, Sister Agnesmarie stated that the need for additional parking is due to new regulations in increased staffing for children with special needs. She further stated that the enrollment of students has not changed, but the staffing has increased. She also stated that additional parking is needed for everyday operations, not just for special programs, and for safety reasons. She then stated that presently, the additional teachers are parking in the fire lane, at the top of the hill, and against the playground area.
 
Mr. Ciunni, engineer, stated that due to the challenging nature of the site, it was difficult to keep green space in that particular area, but did manage to maintain as much as he could.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo comment on the amount of trees to be taken down, Sister Agnesmarie stated that many of the trees slated for removal are diseased.
 
Mr. Brian Worsdall, Property Manager of Julie Billiart School, stated that some of the healthy trees will be located to other parts of the property, and that many of the trees will be replaced.
 
Mayor Cicero stated that according to a previous plan submitted to Board of Zoning Appeals and Council, shows only the tops of the cars will be visible beyond the wall when entering the school.

Motion carried.
 
Legacy Village, 25001 Cedar Road
 
Review proposed plans to erect permanent banners on flag poles.
 
Mr. Kevin Fromat, ASI Signage presented a conceptual sign showing the design of the permanent banners.
 
Mayor Cicero stated that this proposal was before the Planning Commission and approved in conjunction with the existing electronic sign on the corner of Richmond and Cedar Roads. He further stated that the Planning Commission recommended approval to Council because they felt the banner signs fit the character of Legacy Village.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question, Mayor Cicero stated no variance is needed; Council approved the permanent banners and the electronic sign in ordinance form as it was presented to them.
 
Ms. Marcie Gilmore, General Manager, stated that the masonry at the base of the pole is the exact same material that is on the existing electronic sign. She further stated there will be seven (7) poles with banners on the property.
 
Mr. Milanich stated that he feels that the proposal shows a double banner on each pole, due to the logo being on one side of each pole.
 
In answer to Mr. DeBaltzo's question regarding the time limitation of one year, Mr. Puskas stated that that the Building Department will continue to monitor the time frame.
 
Ms. Gilmore explained that the reason for the proposed banner signs is for advertisement of the various establishments located in Legacy Village.
