Three residents approached the Board regarding outdoor storage for trash and recycling receptacles. The Board reviewed logistics, dimensions, and content for an outdoor storage. The underlying principals for the drafting of a change to the By-Laws regarding outdoor storage were: non-encroachment on neighbor’s property; protection of future home owners of said encroachments; complete and permanent screening from view; eliminating increased risk of damage caused by animals.
A quorum was met for the vote and the proposed By-Law change was narrowly defeated by a vote of 34-33. Therefore, the Board will enforce the existing By-Law, which allows for fines when trash and recyclable containers are stored outside the dwelling.
