John Keister, a resident that lives closest to Fairway Drive, is against installing a fence. He stated that he had to sign a document noting the road with no fence. There are safety issues with installing a fence and it does not add to the aesthetics of the community.
Mary Banks at 340 Donnelly Place stated she was given a landscape plan by the developer that is erroneous. She requested more landscaping.
Jennifer Hacko, a resident that does not back up to Fairway, stated she will be walking to work and the High School and chose this neighborhood based on location and access. Safety is her main concern and does not want fence. She reminded everyone that information has been available publicly and everyone had to sign off on the plan. Deerpath does not have fence and is close to homes.
Laura Black, president of Centennial Crossing Homeowners Association stated a fence should follow the specifications of the PUD. She also stated that the Association was not formed when the fence was proposed and all the residents should be taken into account.
Trustee Duros commented that the fence is out of character for the subdivision and everyone signed a document knowing that the road would be there and a fence would not. He recommended Option 1 which provides heavy landscaping as a screen at a cost of $61,410.
Ann McKenna, who backs up to Fairway, stated she received a letter, before her house was built, from the Village stating a fence with landscaping would be installed.
Motion by Trustee Henley, second by Trustee Duros to approve Option 1 which provides heavy landscaping to provide a screen down to the park not to exceed $69,000. Roll call vote:
AYES: 5 - Hebda, Henley, Koch, Ryg, Duros
