Agenda Item: Manager’s Report

The Town Manager noted the Section has recently started working with Joe Toomey, an engineer and building consultant. He will work closely with the Manager in the review of building applications, as well as advise and guide the Council as we begin the upcoming Code revision.

New Section paper telephone directories are at the printer and will be mailed to residents by the end of the week. There were many updates this time, but going forward we plan to print a new one annually.

One Building Permit was issued for 3701 Thornapple. The resident is adding a new bay window.

One tree permit removal was issued for 7404 Brookville. Ironically, this same tree fell during the recent high wind storm. Thankfully, it did not hit anything. However, in this same storm we did have one Section 5 home that suffered extensive damage. A tree from a neighboring property fell into the second floor of the home. The resident was not hurt and is currently staying with family nearby.

The Section has submitted the initial paperwork for the Census project.

There was a discussion of the status of the Purple Line project. No new developments have occurred.

Next week, the Town Manager will join other municipal managers for a meeting with the County Executive Ike Leggett.


Chair Richardson adjourned the meeting. The next meeting will be held March 14, 2017, at 7:30 PM at the Village Hall, 5906 Connecticut Avenue. The Village Hall has handicapped access. Everyone is welcome.
