November 26, 2002 meeting.  

A motion was made by Dennis Grieco and seconded by Don Wineberg to 
amend the motion to add "barring any unforeseen circumstance.  In 
other words, the fact that you have not received RI DEM-ISDS

be required".

Collins

Seated: Richard A., Dennis, Don, Richard B., and Joseph.

A motion was made by Dennis Grieco and seconded by Richard Boren 
to grant the request of John P. and Holly B. Collins, whose 
property is located at 19 Walcott Ave., and further identified as 
Tax Assessor's Plat 9, Lot 574 for a variance from Article 3, 
Table 3-2 (District Dimensional Regulations) to place a shed 9' 
from the front property line (30' required) and 8' from the side 
lot line, (10' required).

This Board has determined that this application does satisfy the 
requirements of Article 6, Section 600, Section 606,and Section 
607, Paragraph 2.

This variance is granted with the following restrictions:

1. The fencing along the north and west boundaries will be 
maintained in substantial conformity to its current character 
and size.
2. The trees in the northwest corner of the property will be 
maintained.

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

1. Said property is located in a R40 zone and contains 13,700 
sq. ft.
2. The applicant is in need of additional storage due to the 
lack of the basement.
3. The northwest corner of the property is screened from the 
neighbor to the north.
4. The topography of the lot makes location of the shed 
elsewhere unreasonable.
5. There were no objectors.

The motion was amended to add "or higher as permitted by the 
zoning ordinance" to restriction #1. And add restriction "#3 the 
shed will not have the cupola as depicted in the picture presented 
by the applicant.

The motion as amended carried by a vote of 5 - 0.
 
Steggall

A motion was made by Don Wineberg and seconded by Dennis Grieco to 
grant the request of Philip & Beth Steggall, whose property is 
located at 41 & 43 Plymouth Rd., and further identified as Tax 
Assessor's Plat 8, Lot 558 for a variance from Article 3, Section 
3-2 (District Dimensional Regulations) to remove temporary 
building and replace with garage/shed positioned 6' from the west 
boundary where as 10' is required.

This Board has determined that this application does satisfy the 
requirements of Article 6, Section 600, Section 606, and Section 
607, Paragraph 2.

This variance is granted with the restriction that there shall be 
no plumbing.

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

1. Said property is located in a R8 zone and contains 10,084 sq. 
ft.
2. Setting the garage far from the street minimizes the visual 
impact of the building for the public.
3. Siting the building within the portion of the lot to avoid a 
variance would have blocked a substantial portion of the 
natural light in the house.
4. The adjacent lot closest to the garage is vacant and will 
likely remain so because it lacks frontage on a public road.

The motion was carried by a vote of 5 - 0.

Cellco

After hearing testimony a motion was made by Dennis Grieco and 
seconded by Richard B. to continue the application of Cellco 
Partnership to the December 17, 2002 meeting at the request of 
their attorney for the purpose of further testimony to address 
screening and noise.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0.
