10:30 pm
the plans that you would have the permit revised based on these plans. >> they were prepared by mr. patterson's engineer, we're okay with them. a couple tweaks that will get done at plan check so we're okay. and the nuance on the current permit is the waz the building permit requires permits done on condos they want two separate permits for each address so the current permit needs a special condition permit to fix the address issue or a sec permit to do the foundation permit. welcome to my worl but this is it so you'll have to have two permits for the west side and two permits for the east side for the identical work. >> this board can't issue those other permits. >> i'm just asking -- >> with condition upon the
10:31 pm
issuance. >> i think i'm going to come back to you and have you craft this motion. >> joe, you want to make this motion? >> this is ten minutes. >> i'll take a stab. the motion would be to grant the appeal and to condition the existing permit on adding a second address and its corresponding special conditions permit. that doesn't work? >> i don't think that works because the only thing -- a special conditions permit is really only reflective of the work that the proposes on a
10:32 pm
permit before it so if there's a new permit that needs to be obtained you can say you're conditioning it on them obtaining that new permit but it's not a special conditions permit, just a new permit. so you're saying they need to get a new permit ksh for the two addresses -- >> either the board can add unit 31 to this permit >> we can cothat? do that? >> yes. >> and then condition this also upon the issuance of a second set of permits for the [inaudible]. sdwl okay. >> okay. so those -- >> does that work? >> and are those plans simply to reflect the east side or to amend the current permit before the board on the west side. >> you add 39 to the current
10:33 pm
permit and this would be a special condition to up hold the current permit. >> that's not answering my question. the question is is the work on that drawing to amend the current scope of work on the west side of the property, not reflective on the east side of the property. >> yes. then this would be 39 and 41. this permit before the board i believe was for the work on the west side of the property. >> we understand that. we have a permit for that. this permit is only for one side. >> i think what he's saying is if you add the address you include the east side and pick up that work. >> why do we need a second permit? >> the current permit is only
10:34 pm
for unit 41 and is only for the west side. if you add the address of 39 to the west side footing you're done there. if you add this foundation work which would be on the east side and then clarify the 39 and 41 -- >> we can't do that. >> we can do that. >> we can? >> yes, if that drawing is for the east side then why is there a second permit needed? it's one permit for all the work. >> go for it. >> it can be accomplished without any new permit required. i want mr. duffy to say yes. >> okay. >> i think the most important thing is that we get both numbers on the 39 and 41. that's really important. >> yeah, we've already
10:35 pm
committed to that. >> so the motion, if i may restate what i believe it should believe, would be to grant the appeal and condition the issuance on adding 39 lake street to the permit and also revising the skoepz scope of work to include the work in the plans tonight. >> subject to plan review. >> it will be subject to plan review just by the nature of the process. >> i stated it very well, didn't it? >> you did. >> was there a date on those plans? >> yes, they're dated 12/17. december 17. >> okay. so again, to up hold this permit on condition at the permit address will be amended to include 39 and 41 lake street with adoption of
10:36 pm
revised plans dated december 17, 2014. on that motion to up hold with that condition and adoption of revised plans, president lazarus. >> i. >> commissioner honda. >> i. >> commissioner wilson. >> i. >> thank you. the vote is four, zero. this permit is upheld with that condition and revised plans. thank you. >> there is no further business. >> we are adjourned. >> happy holidays, merry christmas. christmas. >> good evening everyone with we readies to light a tree.
