Mr. Hartley would like to clear some of the property to the north of the building and put in a new building and parking for RV sales and equipment rental.

The company that is selling the RV’s now is a broker they don’t actually own the vehicles just advertise and connect the seller with the buyer.

The Site Review Checklist was reviewed. Multi use is approved within the building. A site review would need to be complete because RV and Equipment rentals are not approved businesses on the site.

Mr. Hartley will call when ready to continue with the Site Review.

Ms. Paradise has come to the Board to build a new riding arena for the horses to exercise. The Board discussed this being a business not a home occupation.
