Chairman DiNardo called the meeting to order beginning with proposal #1. This is a free standing unit.

Jeff Bogart, with Bogart Architecture explains. The others were duplexes, this is a single. It’s somewhat different. I thought I should give you the respect in what you do and bring this before you.

Chairman DiNardo asked about materials.

Jeff Bogart said it’s the same materials. Color scheme’s been approved, and same stylistic roof language of architecture. The ridge height is a little less than the one’s next door. Roof is different on this, there’s more hip roof on this. We actually have a façade that finally faces SOM Ctr. Rd.

Chairman asked if this is the last one.

Jeff Bogart replied, there’s one more single family lot, a triangular shaped lot. That’ll be next. That’s going to be a little different.

Mr. Miozzi asked about steps off the back.

Jeff Bogart said there’s a drop-off in the back. You can get on the deck but can’t get off in the back.

Chairman DiNardo states for the record, the left side will be facing SOM, facing east and falls off in the back at the ravine.

Chairman said, this is in the same family of what was built several years ago. I don’t have any issue with what’s been presented here. Does anyone have any comments?

Mr. Miozzi said with everything being hipped, from the back this looks good because all the gables match. This gable here coincides with the back elevation, but not the front.

Jeff Bogart said we didn’t hip that on purpose, we didn’t want that hipped because it faces SOM. Chairman agrees with Jeff, it breaks it up.

Jeff Bogart said this is sizable, 3,045 sq. ft.

Chairman asked when construction will begin.

Jeff Bogart said if this gets approved tonight, I’ll complete the construction documents. They’ll get it going quickly. This is not sold yet. There’s one empty lot left and they’re building a duplex now and as of a month ago neither one was sold, but people are looking.


Mr. Miozzi, seconded by Mr. Klein made a motion to approve the proposed New Single Family Dwelling at 6616 SOM Court S/L #24B for Parkledge Development as proposed.    


Ayes:   Mr. DiNardo, Mr. Klein, Mr. Tombazzi, Mr. Miozzi  

Nays:   None                                      

Motion Carried. Drawings Approved.


Thomas & Karen Smoron
6827 Meadowood Dr.

Chairman DiNardo said next proposal is an addition.

Jim Shannon with Shannon Builders explains. Right now it’s a screened-in porch, compromised by water damage. They’re going to remove the screened-in porch and do a full 4-season room, regular room addition. Hip roof, overhangs will be the same. Only difference is it’ll be 4-season, insulated & drywall. There’s an existing foundation.

Mr. Marrelli asked, is there a vapor barrier between the existing slab and the new 2” concrete floor?

Jim Shannon replied, there will be yes, and insulation.

Chairman asked if that’ll be level with the current floor.

Jim Shannon replied, it’ll be level. We’ll bring it up 2 courses.

  • Roof

Chairman asked how old the existing roof is.

Thomas Smoron replied, 3 years old.

  • Hardie Board / Brick Tie-in

Mr. Marrelli asked about the hardie board siding vs. the existing siding. Do you have vinyl?

Thomas Smoron replied, the existing is brick, natural brick.

Mr. Marrelli said that’s good. We don’t have to match any siding then.

Chairman DiNardo said the tricky detail is where it ties into the house.

Mr. Miozzi asked, is the new addition going to be even with this wall that you’re proposing, or are you setting it back according to this drawing?

Jim Shannon replied, it’ll be even.

Chairman said, we’re going to have a transition issue between the brick and the hardie. Because we’re going to have an awkward joint there where you have the hardie board and the brick, I’m wondering if we should set it back several inches just so you have a piece of trim there.

Jim Shannon said I’m putting a piece of PVC trim there going up and then the hardie board will butt to that trim right at the corner. The existing foundation is right there, flush on that. If I was to move back at all, I’d have to re-do the entire foundation.

Chairman DiNardo said the brick and hardie board is an awkward detail. Please submit a drawing to John with that detail.

  • Gutters & Downspouts

Mr. Marrelli asked where the gutters and downspouts are going.

Jim Shannon replied, they’re going right into the existing. We’ll take it back around and tie it into the existing.

Chairman said that’s why you have the large overhangs, because you’re matching the existing. You’ll end up taking the water from the north side all the way around and tie into this downspout.

Jim Shannon comments, we’re not increasing stormwater at all, it’ll be handled the same.

  • Windows

Chairman DiNardo said, you have quite a few windows and no wall space. I want to bring that to your attention as you’re placing furniture.

Mr. Miozzi asked if the bow window will be insulated.

Jim Shannon said yes it’ll be insulated. All the windows will be casements.

Mr. Marrelli states, I’m making some redline notes on my drawing so you could correct and resubmit a revised drawing.

Chairman DiNardo asked about the siding color.

Thomas Smoron replied, the windows are brown on the outside. I was going to do the hardie board to match the dark brown trim.

Chairman DiNardo states, I think this will be a great asset. Does anyone have any further questions or comments?

There were none.
