2.     Staff:

a.  Agenda Forecast – Pam Ricci provided a forecast for upcoming agendas.  She noted that she would follow up at a future ARC meeting to include staff from the City Attorney’s office to discuss conflicts of interest and restrictions on ARC members presenting projects at hearings.

3.     Commission:

Commr. Hopkins noted there was good progress made on the construction of the new pad building at the Village at Broad but that it appeared that some “back of house” elements were facing the street.  Pam Ricci acknowledged this and indicated that staff had worked with the applicant to screen these features to the greatest extent feasible.

Commr. Palazzo mentioned that he had met with Planning staff and the project architect at iFixit to discuss screening of roof-mounted equipment.  He noted that the best screening solution in this case was to paint the equipment a light grey to fade out with the sky.

The ARC spoke in general about the recent remodels of some downtown tenant spaces and how good they looked.

ADJOURNMENT – The meeting adjourned at 6:05 p.m.


Any writings or documents provided to a majority of the Architectural Review Commission regarding any item on this agenda will be made available for public inspection in the Community Development Department, 919 Palm Street, during normal business hours.
