At the Planning Commission <br />meeting on June 26, 1985 the developer presented a revised landscape plan. Also <br />submitted at that meeting were petitions from residents of Dewey Hill Condominiums <br />in opposition to the proposed development. <br />a letter from the president of Windwood Condominiums Association approving the <br />revised landscape plan. Mr. Larsen pointed out that the revised landscape plan <br />substantially increases the sizes of the stock and also increases the number of <br />plantings and emphasizes perimeter screening on the north, west and south sides of <br />the development. The Planning Commission at its meeting on June 26 recommended <br />approval of the revised landscape plan. Mr. Larsen clarified that the referral to <br />the Planning Commission was for review of the landscape plan and that the request <br />before the Council now is for final rezoning and preliminary plat approval. Mayor <br />Courtney stated that he had received many letters from adjoining residents, copies <br />of which have been provided to the Council I4embers. Bob Gunderson, attorney for <br />Brutger Companies, noted that the concept for the project has been approved, sub- <br />ject to further review of the landscape plan and that the developer had met with <br />the adjoining residents for their comments. Steve Wilson, Brutger Companies, <br />stated that some changes have been made to the landscape plan and in meeting with <br />representatives from the Windwood Association they have found it acceptable as <br />indicated in the letter from the president of the Association dated June 26, 1985. <br />In the meeting with representatives of Dewey Hill Condominiums, the conversation <br />tended to move away from the landscape plan and there was no resolve of the matter. <br />Mr. Wilson then reviewed the landscape plan pointing out the changes in type, size <br />and number of trees and submitted that it is now compatible with the landscaping <br />found on adjacent properties. Mayor Courtney stated that from the letters he had <br />received the chief objection to the development was that townhouses were proposed <br />rather than a condominium building such as Dewey Hills Condominiums. <br />concerns and objections were Alvin liiller, Jack Eorciea and Albert Levine of 5501 <br />Dewey Hill Road, and Alvyn Pope of 5601 Dewey Hill Road.
