Public Comment:

Claire Mott – Member of the Historic District Commission
Mrs. Mott expressed that the Historic District Commission is made up of a group of appointed volunteers who make recommendations based on the ordinances and the guidelines established for the Historic District and that if the Board of Alderman grants variances to those recommendations then there really is no point to having a Historic District Commission.

George H. and Sandra S.

The Board of Alderman discussed and clarified the compromise offered by Mr. & Mrs. Ware.

Motion made by James R. Leake, seconded by Abby T.
