Village of Richmond Community Development Committee Regular Meeting Minutes
November 15, 2016 Meeting called to order at 1730 Present:
Trustees: David Nelson, Scott Drabant Others Present: Sam Kelly
Approval of Minutes:
The minutes of 11/1/16 were approved, as written, per a motion by Trustee Drabant and a second by Trustee Nelson. Motion carried. Unfinished Business:
The committee reviewed the Memorial Hall building use license. The license was modified to reflect a different fee for residents versus non-residents. Other language changes were also made. The committee discussed the Memorial Hall brick commemorative Brick Campaign. Trustee Olson revised the promotion document. Rather than having those desiring bricks go on-line it was decided it would be better to have actual hard copies on file at the Village hall and have one or two main orders to the brick company The next item discussed by the committee was the special events financial reports. Draft revisions were made and will be finalized later. Memorial Hall cleaning/painting was discussed. The committee is still exploring avenues to have this accomplished. The exterior color change to 10321 Main Street was discussed at length at the last meeting and the CDC and Board minutes confirm the color changes approved were for the wood exterior not the brick. Will be discussed at the Board meeting on Thursday. New Business:
The committee discussed the number of signs in the Village that do not conform to the Village ordinances. The committee discussed possible options for compliance. Will invite the police chief to the next CDC meeting to coordinate with the CSO and discuss further. CMAP document was discussed. No significant changes to the document. Committee will recommend to the Board to accept. The committee addressed the concept of having a photographic library of all the business and respective signs in the Village. This would make for easy identification of any changes to buildings and/or signs without permit. Trustee Nelson stated he has already undertaken the project and has both individual pictures in hard prints and a CD of such. He volunteered to sort the prints by address to make access easier. The CD would be time consuming in a search of a specific business/sign. CDC has the funds and will use such to have the prints on file.
No further business before the committee.
Sam Kelly joined the committee meeting to discuss the ‘Art Crawl’. He stated he would like to continue the same as last year, but change the date to later in the year to hopefully have good weather. He stated this is just preliminary at this point in time and will keep the committee posted on any developments. Adjournment:
With no further business to discuss Trustee Drabant moved, seconded by Trustee Nelson to adjourn at 1831. The motion was approved by voice vote.
Respectfully submitted by Scott Drabant, Trustee
