Dave Mattingly, resident on Abbey Hill, addressed council regarding the house at 2 Abbey Hill in Aston Oaks. The owners of the home are advertising their home for rent on Airbnb and there are several renters in and out of the home that is rented on a weekly basis. Mr. Mattingly believes they are in violation of North Bend’s Code that is already in place. Ron Hartoin spoke about the Homeowners Association and its’ rules. Scott Sollmann will look into the applicability of provisions within North Bend’s existing Planning & Zoning Code.
John Niehaus passed out two different plans for the Shady Lane development. A builder is interested in developing this property which is zoned R-3 and they have met with Dan Schoster, a JMA engineer. One plan is showing five homes and another plan is showing seven homes in the development. This development is outside of Aston Oaks; they would maintain their own association. (see attached)
Minutes, May 22, 2017
OPEN TO THE FLOOR, Cont’d
Carl Huether, resident on Cliff Road talked about the parcel of vacant land at 3 Miami Avenue. He would like to see a tribute to North Bend installed there to increase the historic aspect of the village. He would also like to see the newsletter reinstated, to keep residents informed of village events. Mayor Sammons suggested emailing residents as a way of communicating. Mr. Huether also talked about replacing the Stop sign with a Yield sign at the bottom of Cliff Road and Brower, as most motorists yield there because they can see traffic approaching in both directions prior to arriving at the intersection.
