we were a little disappointed in the garage. It did not have any elements that were related to the main building or the community and it had a lot of repetition, And not very well done in my opinion.

THE COMMITTEE SUGGESTED EITHER CHANGING THE GARAGE'S DESIGN OR ADDING MORE LANDSCAPE TO PREVENT IT FROM BEING AN EYESORE.

HERTZ DECLINED TO COMMENT AFTER THE MEEETING.

BUT IT WAS CLEAR THEY WERE NOT HAPPY, ESPECIALLY SINCE IT MEANS THEY DON'T GET TO MOVE FORWARD UNTIL CHANGES ARE MADE.
