I make reference to the Memorandum from your office dated 17 September 2015, and my <br />responses make reference to those Item Numbers. <br />Item No. 1: <br />Sheet SP (New Site Plan Sheet), and A-11 (Details). The Trash Enclosure has been relocated to <br />the south side of the Infant Building and away from the 15' structural setback from the adjacent <br />residential property lines. Please refer to Details 9/A-11 and 10/A-11 for the Trash Enclosure <br />Construction notes and details. <br />You also noted that new paving in the 15' setback area was being called into question. When <br />you and I discussed this matter over the counter on 18 September 2015, you indicated you might be <br />able to provide exception if the area of paving for the final plans did not exceed the original paving area <br />for the Entry Walkway, parking and backup areas. I herewith provide the summary calculations for <br />your consideration: <br />a.) Original paved area of walkway, parking area, and backup space = 1,504 s.f. <br />b.) New walkway, Parent Drop-off, and sidewalk area = 1,049 s.f. <br />Thus, the new paved area is 455 s.f. less than the original paved area; and if you would review <br />the resubmitted Site Plan, Sheet SP, the area that intrudes into the 15' setback is quite small - <br />approximately 30 s.f. We ask for an exception in this case. <br />Item No. 2: <br />The Owners have retained the services of a licensed Landscape Architect, John Rubenkonig, <br />whose new Drawings have been submitted For review and approval. His immediate areas of <br />concentration have been directed to identifying any trees to be removed due to hazardous or diseased <br />condition; to replacing or supplementing landscape material to satisfactorily screen the current project <br />from the adjacent residential properties to the south and east sides of the property; and to further <br />defining some of the landscape elements in the new Entry Walkway and Parent Drop-off Areas. <br />John Rubenkonig will provide as necessary at a later date, more specific specification of <br />materials and details for the Play Area. Suffice it for now to indicate that no new structures will be <br />placed in the setback areas. <br />
