2.         The applicant shall erect and maintain a six-foot wooden stockade fence on the boundary, or such other material mutually acceptable to the parties.

2.         This will not affect the area surrounding said property.

3.         The present building is presently non-conforming; no further encumbrance will be made to the existing non-conformities.
