The building he will move in will be attached to his existing barn and both will be remodeled in a way to be consistent with each other's aesthetics. Mr. Adams said it will definitely blend with the surroundings and will be barely visible from the street. He wanted the zoning board to know he will always make sure he follows what's been set up by council and zoning. They are excited about making Trinidad their home. Motion was made by Betty Sanders to approve the building. Helen Covey seconds the motion. Motion carried unanimously.

7. Discuss and approve types of storage buildings: The zoning board will take the zoning ordinance home and consider a few changes they would like to make such as buildings brought into the city, tiny homes and possible minimum square footage. Motion was made by Beth Parker to table this line item to give the board time to review. Betty Sanders seconds the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
