Background

 

The applicant is proposing to replace an existing cement tile roof.  The applicant is proposing three roof colors.  The applicants first choice is Patina Green, the second choice is Old Town Grey, the thirst choice is Terra Cotta.

 

The exiting residence is yellow with a grey roof.

 

Analysis

 

The residence was originally constructed in 1956 with a contemporary design.

 

The applicant is proposing 3 different colors.

 

The Patina Green roof has an IR of .26, the Old Town Gray has an IR of .25 and the Terra Cotta has an IR of .38.  By comparison a Regal White roof has an IR of .68 a Matte Black roof has an IR of .07

 

Solar reflectance, also called albedo, is a measure of the ability of a surface material to reflect sunlight including the visible, infrared, and ultraviolet wavelengths on a scale of 0 to 1, which can be expressed as a decimal fraction (0.7) or a percentage (70 percent). Essentially, it is the percentage of solar energy that is reflected by a surface. Solar reflectance is identified on metal roof charts a an Initial (solar) Reflectance (IR) number.

 

The Patina Green and Old Town Gray colors are compatible with the design of the residence.  The grey is a color listed as preferred by the village in the zoning code.

 

There is a residence with a metal roof two houses from the subject property.

 

Although both the Patina Green and Old Town Gray would work with the existing color of the residence, the choice of grey would be consistent with previous color approvals by the board.

 

The proposed metal roof is consistent with the technical provisions of the Zoning Code.

 

 

Recommendation

 

Planning and Zoning staff recommends APPROVAL of the site plan with a finding that it is consistent with the technical provisions of the Code.  However, the Planning Board must make a finding that the proposed improvements are harmonious with the community, as required in Section 523 of the Code and, in that regard, may add further conditions or delete or modify staff recommended conditions, deny the application, or continue the item for future consideration.  Should the board find that the applicant merits approval, staff recommends that the following conditions apply:

 

1)      Approval is for a Old Town Gray standing seam metal roof.

2)      Applicant to obtain all required building permits before beginning work.

3)      Applicant to meet all applicable code provisions at the time of permitting.

4)      This zoning permit will lapse and become invalid unless the work for which it was approved is started within one (1) year of the signing of the development order by the board chair, or if the work authorized by it is suspended or abandoned for a period of at least one (1) year.
