Review Type


The Commission regrets that the new security fencing was installed without review. No objection to the final designs for: the extension of the perimeter fence around the north parking lot; a new guard booth at the southeast entrance; and the augmentation of the top of the existing perimeter chain link fence (excluding the Nebraska Avenue frontage) with the addition of three strands of of barbed wire on 12 inch outriggers, as shown in materials received and dated 8 November 2017, provided the new sections and components of the additional fencing matches the color of the existing standard vinyl-coated chain link fence.
