A) Certificate of Appropriateness for Changes to Building: Nolensville Feed Mill—7280 Nolensville Road
 
The applicant, Darin Scheff, said he installed the lattice because he sells a lot of flowers and uses it to hang the baskets and for decoration.  Commissioner Barker asked if he thought the lattice was historic.  Mr. Scheff said it is mostly just to hang the potted flowers.  Commissioner Friedlander asked if Mr. Scheff if he had considered staining the lattice to match the weathered look of the building.  Scheff said he did not have the money to do so.
 
Chairman Hughes asked if the gazebo would look exactly as shown, and Scheff said yes.  Town Attorney Bob Notestine confirmed that the item under consideration involves only the aesthetic and the appropriateness of the gazebo.
 
Commissioner Friedlander said the warm color of the gazebo does not match the aesthetics of the building or the Historic District.  Commissioner Barker agreed.
 
Chairman Hughes said he did not like the lattice work and felt it was not historically appropriate.  Mr. Scheff asked if it would be more appropriate if he stained it.  Commissioner Friedlander said it would look better if it were stained.
 
After some discussion the applicant agreed to defer the gazebo to a later meeting to find different designs and materials.  Commissioner Friedlander moved to approve the lattice on the Feed Mill with the condition of conforming to the Historic aesthetics by staining or painting the lattice to a color similar to the building.  Commissioner Barker seconded the motion, which passed by a vote of 2 – 1.  Chairman Hughes opposed the approval of the lattice but stated he was in favor of the deferral of the gazebo.
