Request to change agenda April 10 meeting

From: domainremoved <Brielle>

Ms. Strehl and Mr. Combs,
As Chair and Vice Chair of the Planning Commission I ask that you remove from the April 10, 2017 Agenda a review of 318 Pope St use/permit issue. This hearing is premature in that a tree removal permit will be heard by the Council on April 25, 2017. The siting plan for this house depends on the decision the Council will make regarding the removal of heritage trees on the property.

This property and its plans were heard by the Planning Commission on July 20, 2015 when a prior owner was seeking a use permit. At that time, the trees in question were protected as heritage trees. Please note that the Staff Report attached to the minutes to this Planning Commission meeting is for a different application, not 318 Pope St. Please ask that this error be corrected. I am interested in seeing the site design done in July 2015 so as to compare it with the site design requested by the current applicant Scott Cole.

This is a difficult parcel that comes with a complex growth of heritage trees and careful attention needs to be given to the permits granted. I believe that the Planning Commission reviewing the plans before the Council makes its decision regarding the removal of the redwood tree is premature.
