Pyr. Echelbarger indicated this 'would enable <br />the Brookacres homeowners::to..preserve their view rights and would also maintain privacy for Brookacres <br />and the Goodricks. Mr. LaTourelle recommended that the amendment to the PRD be approved with those <br />conditions. The public portion.of,the hearing'iwas opened. Patrick Echelbarger explained the reasons <br />for increasing the various lot.size's. He said every owner of a lot will replace.the laurel sight <br />screen if it is removed on his lot and all the current owners had signed the plat and would be bound <br />by it. Linda Goodrick of 16510 76th Ave. W. said she would like'to have more than 6' of privacy as <br />the PRD was a multiple situation next to their single family home. Mr. Echelbarger corrected her in <br />that the PRD is not multiple but is also single family. He said Lot 3 is right next to the Goodricks' <br />home and there will be a view to the northwest corner of that lot which the laurel hedge would <br />obstruct. Mrs. Goodrick was advised.that 6' is maximum height allowed for a sight screen, even <br />thoughtaller ones may be seen from time to time. The public portion of the hearing was then <br />closed.
