CITIZEN COMMENTS

Beth Lothers, 304 Walpole Court, stated she had the privilege of seeing the original log home with Mr. Bennett and seeing some of the ideas and plans for this relocation and restoration, and feels this will be a jewel for the Town of Nolensville. She further stated that she had the privilege of touring the Sherwood Green home on Rocky Fork Road that Janis Green has been restoring and it is absolutely beautiful and another jewel for Nolensville’s history.

NEW BUSINESS

Request for a Certificate of Appropriateness to relocate and restore the McCord-Nolen House from 7263 Nolensville Road, to just north of 7269 Nolensville Road (next to the dental office).

Henry Laird, Town Planner, stated that two applications are being dealt with tonight. The first is to move the house to the rear of the lot. The Bennett’s will be sharing in the costs to move the house, and will then assume the responsibility for the restoration. The Commission will be deciding whether to issue a Certificate of Appropriateness to move the house to the proposed site. The second item is to discuss the exterior restoration; such as colors for the roof, reconstruction of the porch and other details.

Commissioner Brant Brandon made a motion to approve the Certificate of Appropriateness to allow the move of the building. Commissioner Felts seconded the motion; which passed unanimously.

Mrs. Bennett stated she would like to keep the colors green for the roof and white for the siding. They intend to just wash the siding instead of replacing it for now, and intend to replace the roof with dark green shingles. They will also be building two porches and a ramp.

Commissioner Friedlander made a motion to approve a Certificate of Appropriateness to install a new dark green shingled roof that is appropriate for the time period, and to allow the installation of two porches and a ramp. Commissioner Felts seconded the motion; which passed unanimously.

The Commission members thanked Keith McCord and the Bennetts for saving, relocating and restoring this historic house that is such an important part of Nolensville’s history.
