<br />from Board of Appeals and Adjustments decisions of Michael-Northwestern Partner-
<br />ship for numerous variances for property located at 6400 France Ave. s. had been
<br />continued from the meeting of August 17, 1881, so that the proponents would have

<br />that they could get in touch with residents to the North to see if there would
<br />be any objections to the parking screening variance.

<br />subject to acceptance of the plans by the Council. Ms. Linda Fisher, represent-

<br />been notified of the proposed screening variance and that she had received no
<br />objections. She clarified that occupants of those buildings had not been noti-

<br />plans, the agreement could be presented for signing some time this week. Mr.

<br />discretion of the Manager and the Planner. Stating that he believes that the
