OPEN PORTION:

Chairman Pro-Tem Klein called the meeting to order. We’re going to hold off on the Organizational portion until the end of the meeting.

NEW Single Family Dwelling
John & Jackie Messina
7029 Wilson Mills Rd.
Payne & Payne Custom Builders, Inc.

Chairman Pro-Tem Klein states, we have one proposal tonight, a new single family dwelling for John & Jackie Messina.

Eric Payne with Payne & Payne Builders introduced himself and passed out exterior material & color selections. You’re probably aware there’s an existing house on the property that has molded and rotted away. The Messina’s have purchased it and we’ll demolish it. This new house will be set in its place. We tried to stick with traditional architecture.

Roofing: Certainteed Landmark “Weathered Wood”

Stone Veneer: Cultured Stone Profit Alpine Ledgestone “Pheasant”

Siding: Hardiplank “Woodstock Brown”

Cornice: aluminum “Ivory”

Window Color: White

Exterior Trim: (window trim, brackets, columns, siding corners): MeriTEC, painted “Grecian Ivory”.

Front Door (stainable fiberglass) and Porch Ceiling (Pine): color: “Aged Mahogony” stain color.

Overhead Doors: Wayne Dalton Sonoma, 8300 Series, Stockton III windows with Spear Harware. Color: “Golden Oak”

Mrs. Wervey arrives @ 7:35 p.m.

Mr. Miozzi asked, on your returns, are the tops of those going to be shingle? I’ve seen guys do them in aluminum.

Eric Payne replied, good question. If we did the aluminum, it would match the Ivory. If we did the shingle, it would obviously be the weathered wood color.

Mr. Miozzi asked, the band going across your gables, is that a raised band, and the color?

Following review of the band, Mr. & Mrs. Messina prefer it to match the Woodstock Brown siding.

Mr. Miozzi said, the only other comment I have is on your floor plan. On your floor plan, the garage doors are measured out to be 9’ and on the elevation they’re at 8’.

Eric Payne replied, they were preliminary. We intend them to be 9’ wide.

  • Two Cooking Facilities

Mr. Marrelli addressed the two kitchens. You’re not allowed two cooking facilities in a single family dwelling.

Eric Payne said, the space is intended to be a bar or a flexible kitchen area, a separate prep area.

Mr. Marrelli asked, do you have a stove in there? You have some rooms named Owner’s Suite as opposed to Non-Owner’s Suite? I don’t understand. Is it just the two of you?

Mr. Messina replied yes, us and our Son. We do a lot of entertaining, cooking & canning. We have a big family.

Mr. Marrelli said the kitchenette is fine as long as there’s no stove in it. You can’t have any cooking in there. It’s in our definitions in the Zoning Code:

1113.08 (f); “Accessory living accommodations” means a building, or part thereof, used solely as accommodations for occupants, personal guests, or persons employed on the premises or other nonpaying transients and in which no cooking or similar housekeeping equipment is provided.

Mr. Marrelli said Carmen, you asked about an In-Law Suite. That’s fine, bedroom, closet & bathroom are all fine, but no kitchen.

Eric Payne said that’s interesting. I built a lot of second kitchens for clients who entertain a lot. I don’t know how you work around that in Mayfield Village.

Mr. Marrelli replied, you don’t. We’ve been down this road before. It’s been to Committees, Council & Court. We just finished a court case where a guy built a man cave and put a full kitchen in it. We’re in Common Pleas Court on appeals for the third time with that. They’ve been saying this Ordinance says you can’t have two facilities with kitchens on one property. That makes it two families. That’s the defining line, the extra kitchen. Your plan says cooking or housekeeping equipment, so whatever you think housekeeping equipment is. I draw the line at something to cook with, i.e. oven, stove or cooktop. That’s where my delineation is. A refrigerator, microwave and sink are not a problem in my estimation.

Eric Payne said, on the final drawings, we’ll eliminate that.

  • Right Elevation

Ed Parker said, the only thing that struck me was the right side elevation with the 3-car garage. That seems like a pretty big garage wall with no penetration. It’d be nice to see a couple windows in there to break that up. That’s right when you turn the corner at the top of the hill. You’re going to be right on display there.

Mr. Marrelli said, just so you know, you’re not allowed to face the garage to the street. No roof penetrations on any kind? No chimneys?

Eric Payne replied, fireplace coming out the side. Soil stack will be above the ridge in the rear. On the front there won’t be any pipes coming out of the roof.

Mr. Tombazzi said I suggest you change the bathroom & shower on the outside wall to the inside wall, page #4.

Eric Payne said, the tub will be a free standing tub. It’s going to sit in front of the window. All the plumbing for that section is coming up through the floor. The shower head is through the wall, but it’s the wall common with the walk-in closet. We don’t have any pipes on the outside wall.

Ed Parker said in the commercial code you’re required to have a 4” step up from the garage. That stair that goes down actually has to start 4 inches up because the gases all drop basically.

Mr. Marrelli said, or you have to put a curb there. Whatever is less awkward, because the curb is a tripping hazard.

Eric Payne said that’s a good suggestion.

Mr. Marrelli asked, will there be a floor drain at the bottom of that stairway?

Eric Payne replied, no.

  • Septic System

Mr. Marrelli said not that it matters now, but you’re working the details out with the septic system? You should have received the letter from our Engineer on the site plan review.

Eric Payne replied, yes. We got that all approved through Cuyahoga & Columbus. We had to get a NPDES permit. It’s not going to be a leech field of any type, it’s an Off-Lot Discharge System. The existing tank is getting abandoned, it was built in 1994, not that old, but we just decided to replace it entirely.

Mr. Marrelli noted that all the setbacks and sidelines are good.

Chairman Pro-Tem Klein asked if there were any further questions or comments. There were none.

DECISION:

Mr. Miozzi, seconded by Mr. Parker made a motion to approve the proposed New Single Family Dwelling at 7029 Wilson Mills Rd. for John & Jackie Messina as discussed.

  • Recommendation to add windows to the right elevation.

ANY OTHER BUSINESS:

Mr. Klein said one of the things we requested as a Board last year that was passed by the Charter Review Committee and ultimately granted by the voters in November was that In the event this Board is lacking a quorum, John can create the quorum and has the ability to vote. He just cannot break a tie vote. That eliminates the applicant from having to come back to another meeting for an approval.
