Description: Addition above garage and swimming pool – Concept

RECOMMENDATION: Recommend against concept design for proposed addition on roof of existing garage and proposed swimming pool in rear yard.

The proposed location of the swimming pool would have a negative impact on existing trees and compromises the possibility of mature landscape, which is characteristic of the historic district.
