Country Club District Plan of Treatment: <br /> • Zoning Ordinance regulations that impede development relative to driveway width <br /> and side yard setback <br /> • Size, scale, and massing <br /> • Additions (currently don't require a COA) <br /> • Deviations from guidance in Plan of Treatment <br /> The Council, Heritage Preservation Board and staff discussed the grant that will allow the study of <br /> the bungalows in Morningside. It was noted that this work would begin in the fall of 2009 and must <br /> be completed by 2010. In addition, the Country Club Plan of Treatment was discussed. It was <br /> noted that part of the Plan of Treatment was intended to cover the demolition and new construction <br /> of any principal dwelling or detached garage within the District boundaries. During discussion it <br /> was also noted that a portion of the Plan of Treatment was regulatory, but the design review <br /> guidelines were not regulations. Consensus was to leave the Plan in its current state and allow the <br /> Board to do its work; however, the Council would be receptive to modification of the plan if the <br /> Board felt it was needed. <br /> The Council thanked the Heritage Preservation Board for its work. <br /> There being no further business, Mayor Hovland adjourned the meeting at 6:35 p.m. <br /> Respectfully submitted, <br /> Debr Man n, City Clerk <br /> Minutes approved by Edina City Council, May 19, 2009. <br /> James C. Hovlan , Mayor <br />
