MINUTES OF BOARD MEETING

TRUSTEES OF BARTON HILLS VILLAGE

December 14, 2015

The regular meeting of the Board of Trustees was called to order by President Boddie at 6:02 PM at the Village Hall.

ROLL CALL Present: Trustees Al-Awar, Benson, Boddie, Borel, Butterwick, Izenberg, Langford, MacKrell and van der Velde. Absent: None.
Others attending: Asst. Treasurer King.

WALL PERMIT The application for construction of entrance walls at 440 Barton North Drive was disapproved, based on the consensus that the walls were too large for the location and seemed out of character with the Olmsted intent of a natural, parklike community. The desire of owners to improve their homes was lauded but there are not similar entrance feature on neighboring properties. The Board would consider a revised application with perhaps smaller walls and/or just pillars. (Butterwick/Langford/P)
