New Business – Timothy LeRoy 2009-3 Area Use Variance
Recess until 7:30.
Reconvened at 7:30 – Public Hearing 2009-3
Called to order by Chairman Greg Auleta
Application from Timothy LeRoy to construct an addition to his residence. CEO initially denied the application because of set back.
Mr. LeRoy explained his plan including a 4 block foundation for a bedroom, baseboard heat.
Record shows signed sheet by neighbors with no one raising any objection. (No neighbors present at Public Hearing).
Greg Auleta – as an area variance this would be a front yard set back variance. Based on existing dimensions of the current home, the addition will need a 16’ variance. Variance will be 34’ from the road line.
Discussion and Examination
1. Will this be detrimental to the health and safety of the general public or family. No
2. Can this benefit be achieved by any other means feasible to the applicant other than moving. No
3. No change in character of the neighborhood or nearby properties. No
4. Request is substantial. Yes
5. Will it adversely effect the environment. No.
6. Is it self created. No.
Zoning Board Committee feels application itself has adequately answered the six questions that need to be addressed.
Motion to grant an area variance for a road set back of 34’ in front of residence – Tim Anderson

Greg Auleta – yes
Tim Anderson – yes
