SP-2002-07: Review the Site Plan for Andover Boarding Kennel, 515 W. Central. Don Kimble presented information on behalf of the applicants Drs. Gary and Kathy Harmon. Mr. Kimble reviewed the site plan with the committee. The new building will be 40’x100’.  This will be a fully enclosed commercial project. The building will be centered on the lot and behind the current building, which will minimize the visual impact o n the frontage on Central Avenue. It is at least 100’ from the residential properties on the west. Don Kimble presented information about a new monument sign, for the new structure.

Mr. Kimble stated that the landscaping plan calls for a 10’ landscape buffer between the church to the east of the property and the new driveway. He stated thee will be lots of shrubs placed there and also up along the building. He stated the drawings show a 4’ landscape area but this is to be increased to 5’ or 6’.

Mr. Kimble stated the furnace is in the attic space and the two condensers will probably be on the north or west wall on the building not the east or south side of the buildings. Mr. Israel asked why this does not have the same roofline as the existing building. Don Kimble stated the existing build has double structural T’s, which makes the ceiling very low.

 

Mr. Kimble stated the new roof is pitched to accommodate the mechanical and has residential trusses on 24” centers.

 

Charley Lewis suggested that both signs on the property be identical on similar bases. Mr. Mangus stated the current pole sign is a legal non-conforming use.
