Mr. Madsen asked how do you determine if harmonious does he look at all houses in Miami Shores. Mr. Flores stated he looks at surrounding properties in the neighborhood.

Mr. Abramitis asked how the paint chips relate to the actual color of houses. Mr. Flores answered some houses when painted are lighter and some are darker than the paint chip would suggest. Mr. Fernandez noted that the color rendering provided did not accurately reflect the color proposed.
