Sixteen neighbors and community members were present.  A Quam Engineering LLC parking lot drawing and Dane County erosion control and stormwater management permits were made available for public viewing.  David Spangler, the resident on the north side of the proposed lot was assured by Dane County Water Resource Engineering Division permit that his 18 inch driveway culver was sufficient to handle the stormwater run-off.  Spangler also raised questions about the proposed retention wall, privacy fencing and invasive lighting from vehicles and security lights.  Owner Gement reassured Spangler that he would work cooperatively to address his concerns.  The fence shall be high enough to screen invasive lighting and vegetation will be provided for screening from CTH N.
