Committee Comments

 

-       Height of 8’-0” is too high and should be reduced to a more acceptable height (4’-0” or 5’-0”)

 

-       Straight-line fencing should be broken up to provide more relief.  Possible incorporate more materials like brick or stone into the fencing.  Current design feels too Utilitarian and un-welcoming.

More information is needed and clearer drawings will need to be presented for committee review
