5. LignoTech Exterior Building Architectural Review Standards – Revision

The Planning and Zoning Commission previously approved the LignoTech site plan to include a full front face façade of non-metal material. LignoTech objected to this requirement as the additional cost to the project is substantial and the building would have to be redesigned. Senior Architect David E. Delfosse of Boldt Technical Services proposed to exceed the minimum standard of 4,080 total square feet of non-metal wall aggregate and use an exterior textured surface metal panel that will have a special finish applied so it has the appearance of finished precast concrete which would total 4,400 square feet. In addition, there will be a three color scheme split faced block utilized in the design.

Motion by McCarthy/Carson to approve the revisions to the LignoTech site plan as it relates to the exterior of the building to include 4,400 total square feet of three color schemed textured surface metal panel finished to have the appearance of precast concrete using the following: split face CMU- natural gray, smooth face CMU- white, split face CMU- charcoal, and insulated metal panel- light gray (Tuff Cote finish). Questioned and carried 7:0.

6. Adjourn : Motion by Owen/Carson. Questioned and carried 7:0. The meeting adjourned a 6:28 PM.
