Exterior Project Request for Mr. Jay Glotzer and Mrs. Karyn Glotzer.
Project Description - Installing a 18’ x 33’ above ground pool inset with a deck surrounding fence railing and entry gate with lock/latch.

On Saturday, April 28th, Jay Glotzer came to the home of Joe Sturonas, asking for approval of a deck, and Joe explained that there is an exterior project request form on the website www.glenmorewoods.org, that he needs to fill out, along with the plans that would be submitted to the Village of Green Oaks.

This exterior project request was emailed to Joe Sturonas on Sunday April 29th at 9:13pm. This contained a not to scale drawing of a deck and an above ground pool.

On May 2, 2018, Karyn and Jay Glotzer emailed asking for the status of the approval, as they have arranged for construction of the pool and fence on May 10th.

The board needs to see the documentation that the Glotzer would submit to the Village of Green Oaks. Joe Sturonas requested on May 3, 2018, via email to Karyn Glotzer’s email, the need for the documentation that would be submitted to Village of Green Oaks.

On May 4th, Karyn Glotzer emailed back a hand written diagram of the deck and above ground pool that includes. The new diagram showed different dimensions of the deck, which now shows it to be 39’ by 33’, which would be 1,287 square feet, which is larger than the foundation of the house, which is 1,260 square feet. Diagram is not clear if the existing deck/porch structure is subsumed or is an extension of, because the diagram does not include the house in the existing lot.

With the existing deck/porch, the total structure is estimated to be approximately 1600 square feet in size, extended way out into their lot.

Section 8.03 of the Declaration of Covenants disallows any temporary or permanent structure other than a house to be used as a dwelling, for storage or for any other purpose, either temporarily or permanently. The board discussed the requirement to protect the architectural and aesthetic integrity of the property and to protect the value of the property for all owners.
Motion: To approve the Jay Glotzer and Karyn Glotzer Exterior Project Request for Installing a 39’ x 33’ above ground pool inset with a deck surrounding fence railing and entry gate with lock/latch.
