CASEY

A motion was made by Dennis Grieco and seconded by Richard Allphin to
grant the request of Lori A. Casey, whose property is located at 3 Center
St., and further identified as Tax Assessor's Plat 8, Lot 310 for a
variance from District Dimensional Requirements, Table 3-2 to construct an
addition which will be 12'3" from the easterly boundary, wherein 20' is
required.

This Board has determined that this application does satisfy the
requirements of Article 6, Section 600, Section 606, Paragraphs 1 through
4, and Section 607, Paragraph 2

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

1. Said property is located in a R20 zone and contains 13,089 sq. ft.

2. The applicant withdrew her request for any variance on the western side
of the house, as they will not be building the proposed garage on that
side at this time.

3. There is a paper road along the eastern boundary of the applicant's
property which separates her property from the adjacent property thereby
lessening the impact of the relief she is seeking.

4. The proposed addition for which the relief is sought will provide
necessary additional room for the applicant's family and needs to be
located on the eastern side of the house due to the grade of the lot.

5. There were no objections to the application as amended.

6. It would be unreasonable to deny the application as amended based on
these facts.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0.

Catherine Finney, Richard Allphin, Dennis Grieco, Don Wineberg, and
Raymond Iannetta voted in favor of the motion.

Rolf Knudsen and Thomas Ginnerty were not seated.

Guy Settipane was absent.
