 NEW BUSINESS 

 Flanagan 

A motion was made by Rolf Knudsen to deny the request of Edward 
Flanagan. It did not get a second and therefore was withdrawn.

A motion was made by Thomas Ginnerty and seconded by Richard Allphin to 
grant the request of Edward Flanagan whose property is located at 
Columbia Lane and further identified as Tax Assessor's Plat 2, Lot 152 
for a variance from Article 3, Section 308 (Setback from Freshwater 
Wetlands) to construct a septic system which will be 130 ft. from 
freshwater wetlands instead of the required 150 ft.

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

This variance is granted with the restriction that construction be 
performed pursuant to the revised plan submitted 4/23/96.

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

1. The property is located in a RR80 zone and contains 118,800 sq. ft.

2. That the plan complies with D.E.M. 

3. That the request only requires a 20 foot change.

4. To conform to the 150 ft. requirement would require changes to the 
   contour of the land, potentially causing runoff to adjacent 
   property, and potential destruction of large old trees.

The motion carried by a vote of 4 - 1.

Rolf voted against the motion.

 TEMPLETON-COTILL 

A motion was made by Richard Allphin and seconded by Rolf Knudsen to 
grant the request of Anna Templeton-Cotill whose property is located at 
951 Ft. Getty Rd., and further identified as Tax Assessor's Plat 11, 
Lot 7 for a variance from Article 3, Section 302 (District Dimensional 
Regulations), and Article 7, Section 705 (Alteration of a Nonconforming 
Structure) to alter the roof line of an existing nonconforming 
structure which has an 8.75 ft. front setback where 40 ft. is required. 

 Templeton-Cotill cont. 

This Board has determined that this application does satisfy the 
requirements of Article 6, Section 6-8, Paragraphs 1 through 4, and 
Section 6-9, Paragraph 2.

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

1. The property is located in a RR80 zone and contains 2+ acres.

2. The additional portion of the proposed structure will be 
   apporoximately 22 ft. from the front lot line. 

3. The proposed addition will have a bedroom and bathroom, but no 
   kitchen, so will not become a "dwelling" unit. 

4. A neighbor spoke in favor of granting the variance.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0.
