Minutes note: Mr. Andrew Stern said the applicant currently has a four-foot wood fence and they are proposing to add a black, picket fence on the front and side yards and a 6-foot mocha-colored fence on the rear yard, which would be vinyl. Staff recommends denial. Lindsey and Josh Birch - the front fence will be tan and the vinyl material will match the house trim. They want the privacy fence due to safety concerns and there are two vacant houses that are leading to crime issues. There is also a close chain link fence that is run-down. Cedar fences are cheaper and vinyl is more expensive and has less upkeep. They have had issues with graffiti. Their house was built in 2007. They would have aesthetic trim caps that match the Queen Anne style of the house and the privacy, vinyl fence would not face the public area at all.
