Maccarone

 

A motion was made by Richard Boren and seconded by Joseph Logan to grant the request of Vilma Maccarone, whose property is located at Helm & Stern Streets, and further identified as Tax Assessor’s Plat 14, Lot 116 for a variance from Article 3, Section 302 (District Dimensional Regulations) to construct a 22’ x 32’ house with a front setback of 24’ instead of the required 30’ setback.

 

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 shed on lot 158 cannot be moved to lot 116.

2.             The driveway shall be from Stern Street onto the property.

 

 

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

 

1.               Said property is located in a R40 zone and contains 7,200 sq. ft.

2.                   The proposed dwelling is being moved from lot 158 to lot 116.

3.                   It is in the best interest of the Town to not destroy existing dwellings.

4.                   The proposed dwelling is 704 sq. feet, which is exceedingly small.

5.                   The actual distance of the house from Helm Street is 28 feet, where 30 feet is required.

6.                   The proposed deck walkway is four feet and is necessary to provide contiguous access to the rear deck without having to exit or enter through the bedrooms.

7.                   The ISDS has been approved for a 2-bedroom house.

8.                   The relief sought is the least relief necessary.

A motion was made by Joseph Logan and seconded by Thomas Ginnerty to grant the request of  Conanicut Yacht Club, whose property is located at 40 Bayview Dr., and further identified as Tax Assessor’s Plat 8, Lot 267 for a variance from Article 3, Section 82-302 (Side yard requirements) to allow the construction of an addition to an existing building, which will be 5’ from the northerly property line instead of the required 20’. 

 

This Board has determined that this application does satisfy the requirements of ARTICLE 6,  SECTION 600, SECTION 606, and SECTION 607, PARAGRAPH 2.

 

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

 

1.               Said property is located in a R40 zone and contains 37,070+ sq. ft.

2.                   There will be no greater visual encroachment on the north side setback than that which already exists.

3.                   Expansion to the south or toward the water is not a possible alternative due to the location of a Linden tree and probable coastal disturbance.

4.                   Improvements are necessary to upgrade to present codes in restroom and kitchen facilities.

5.                   This relief appears to be the least necessary.

 

The motion carried by a vote of 5 –0.
