A motion was made by David Nardolillo and seconded by Joseph Logan to grant the request of Mary Pat Ryan, whose property is located at 15 Priscilla Rd., and further identified as Tax Assessor’s Plat 8, Lot 191 for a variance from Article 3, Table 3-2 (District Dimensional Regulations) to construct a front porch addition, which will be 23.9’ from the front lot line instead of the required 30’.  

 

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

 

In particular reference to Article 6, Section 600, Paragraph 2.

 

This variance is granted with the following restriction: that the alterations of the structure will be built in substantial conformance with the plan submitted with the application.

 

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

 

1.     Said property is located in a R20 zone and contains .32 acres.

2.         Said variance falls within the 25% administrative decision limit.

3.         The alterations are within the designs of adjacent homes and would greatly improve the aesthetics of the home.

4.         Granting this variance would not negatively affect the health, welfare, and safety of the Town of Jamestown or its residence.

VanDerWal

 

A motion was made by Richard Boren and seconded by Don Wineberg to grant the request of Tenley & Onne VanDerWal, whose property is located at 2 Priscilla Rd., and further identified as Tax Assessor’s Plat 8, Lot 193 for a variance from Article 3, Table 3-2 (District Dimensional Regulations) to construct an addition to an existing single-family dwelling which will be 19’ from the front lot line wherein 30’ is the requirement.  

 

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 restriction:

 

1.     The addition be in line with the existing dwelling, which would be approximately 20’ from the front lot line instead of the requested 19’.

2.     The addition be in substantial conformance with the plan submitted.

 

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

 

1.     Said property is located in a R20 zone and contains 18,657 sq. ft.

2.         The addition for economic purposes, needs to be on the side of the house where proposed because of plumbing considerations.

3.         To place the addition on the other side of the house would eliminate most of the open space for the children’s play yard.

4.         The addition will maintain the prairie style architecture.

5.         There were no objectors to the application.

6.         A substantial part of the reason for the dimensional variance is the pie shaped configuration of the lot, and not the fault of the applicant.

 

The motion did not carry by a vote of 3 – 2.

 

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

 

Thomas Ginnerty and David Nardolillo voted against the motion.
