Steggall

 

A motion was made by Don Wineberg and seconded by Joseph Logan 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 311 (Maximum Size of Accessory Structures) to allow construction of a temporary Boat Shed which exceeds the size allowed under the ordinance. 

 

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 boat may only be worked on between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.

2.         The construction method may not release noticeable odors or vapors from volatile organic compounds.

3.         The vacuum and heater fans shall face northward or westward to minimize the noise heard by neighbors.

4.         The applicant will not permit people helping him in construction of the boat to park on the street.

5.         This approval does not run with the land.

6.         This approval shall expire after 21 months unless extended by the Zoning Board for good cause shown.

 

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.         The applicant independently notified neighbors as did the Building Official and no neighbors objected. The applicant reported that the neighbors were supportive.

3.         Jamestown has a long and valued history of residents building and working on their own boats. The application is in this tradition.

 

 

A motion was made by Don Wineberg and seconded by Joseph Logan to amend the motion to add restriction #7. All construction materials will be stored inside.

 

The motion as amended carried by a vote of 4 – 1.

 

Thomas Ginnerty voted against the motion.

 

Don Wineberg, Richard Boren, Joseph Logan, and David Nardolillo voted in favor of the motion.

 

Dean Wagner and Richard Cribb were not seated and Raymond Iannetta was absent.
