Minutes note: Mr. Tim Askin said that the applicant is requesting retroactive approval for driveway and landscaping work. A stop work order has now been issued by the Department of Neighborhood Services, but wasn't done after the first two anonymous complaints were received. This house was originally a coach house for the family home around the corner - it was re-sited and sold off as a separate property. Between 2009-2011, a front retaining wall was done without a COA. Michael Hosale bought the house in 2017. The driveway is adjacent to the neighbor's driveway, but there was a separation between the two. Now the two driveways have the same paving material so now it reads as one big parking area. Mr. Tim Askin said the staff is okay with the retaining wall on the east side by the driveway. Staff feels the steps are acceptable and appropriate to the property. Staff does not support the same brick being used for both driveways as it appears too much as a parking space. Staff would recommend either continuing the retaining wall or the planter in the driveway area to break up that expanse. Staff recommends denial of the retaining wall that is parallel to the sidewalk. Michael Hosale - 2604 N. Lake Dr. - there are 3 co-owners for both properties (Mr. Hosale, his wife and Dianne Dziengel). Ms. Dziengel is also present. They were using the same materials and setbacks that were previously approved and the neighborhood found the landscaping very pleasant. Mr. Hosale noted that there are 4 concrete driveways with no differentiation between them. Mr. Hosale also noted there are five retaining walls on Terrace Ave. Ms. Peltz was concerned that there had been previous applications to HPC, but this work was done without seeking a COA. Tim Brennan - Brennan Landscaping - there aren't a lot of brick options for a driveway. No retaining wall is needed to separate the driveways. Susan LaBudde - 2581 N. Terrace Ave. - the neighbor to the west just had an approved retaining wall and she prefers walls as they prevent puddles of ice forming on the sidewalks. Mr. Jarosz recommended using a different color for the access path between the driveways. Mr. Keating Kahn would like the retaining wall removed. Ald. Bauman didn't object as strongly to the retaining wall, but saw no reason why anyone would merge the two properties and erase the property line between the properties. Mr. Hosale thought the use of concrete wouldn't have been an issue and he used permeable pavers, which are better than concrete. Ald. Bauman moved for denial of the 2 COAs, as recommended by Staff.
