2. Consent Agenda. Mrs. Deaton-Moyer indicated that the consent agenda had two items. The first item on the consent agenda, a project at 2004 Priest Road, was an addition where the dwelling was nonconforming due to encroachments on the side and front setbacks. The proposed plan would not increase the nonconformity. The second item, a porch addition at 2012 Tyne Boulevard, was located on a lot that presently exceeded the allowable impervious surface. The addition would not increase the impervious surface because it was proposed be built over existing concrete. Three adjacent neighbors submitted letters of support for the project. After brief discussions, Mr. Waller motioned to approve the consent agenda. Mr. Littlejohn seconded it and the motion was approved unanimously.
