 OLD BUSINESS 

 Henrotin 

John Murphy requested that the application of Clifford Henrotin be 
continued to the January 23, 1996 meeting.

A motion was made by Richard Allphin and seconded by Rolf Knudsen to 
continue the application of Clifford Henrotin to the January 23, 1996 
meeting to allow the applicant time to get an elevation, survey and 
engineering drawings to show accurate setbacks.

The motion carried.


 Winoker 

John Murphy requested that the application of James R. Winoker be 
continued to the May 28, 1996 meeting.

A motion was made by Catherine Finney and seconded by Rolf Knudsen to 
continue the application of James R. Winoker to the May 28, 1996 
meeting to allow time for the applicant to go before the Planning 
Commission and get ISDS approval.

The motion carried.

 Aresti 

Seated: Martin, Rolf, Catherine, Richard, and Thomas.

A motion was made by Rolf Knudsen and seconded by Richard Allphin to 
grant the request of Ralph and Susan Aresti whose property is located 
on Plat 2, Lot 10 for a variance from Article 3, Section 302 (District 
Dimensional Regulations), to construct a single family home 40 feet 
from the front lot line (40 ft. required), and 20 feet from the rear 
lot line (40 ft. required).

This Board has determined that this application does satisfy the 
requirements of Article 6, Section 606, Paragraphs 1 through 4, and 
Section 607, Paragraph 2.

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

1. The property is located in a RR80 zone and contains 20,000 sq. ft.

2. An abutter objected to the front setback at 30 ft. and felt that the 
   40 foot setback should be maintained.

3. The application is for a modest house on this lot and because of the 
   size and shape of the lot it would be difficult to build even a 
   small home without a variance.

The motion carried with a vote of 4 - 1.

Martin Hellewell voted against the motion.

 NEW BUSINESS 

 Potter 

Spencer W. Potter requested that his application be continued to the 
January 23, 1996 meeting.

A motion was made by Rolf Knudsen and seconded by Thomas Ginnerty to 
continue the application of Spencer W. Potter to the January 23, 1996 
meeting due to abutter misunderstandings about rescheduling dates 
because of a snowstorm.

The motion carried.

 Mariorenzi 

Seated: Martin, Rolf, Catherine, Richard, and Thomas.

A motion was made by Rolf Knudsen and seconded by Thomas Ginnerty to 
continue the application of Louis J. Mariorenzi and Priscilla Szneke to
the January 23, 1996 meeting to allow the applicant time to get more 
information regarding standards for inground propane tanks and data to 
substantiate that propane is not a pollutant if it leaks into the 
ground. 

The motion carried.

 Applications 

The Board reviewed the responsibilities of an applicant in filing for a 
zoning variance, special exception and building code appeals.

A motion was made by Richard Allphin and seconded by John Caito to 
substitute page 2 as corrected for paragraph 3 on the first page.

The motion carried.
