Piccoli

 

A motion was made by Don Wineberg and seconded by Thomas Ginnerty to deny the request of David & Gilda Piccoli, whose property is located at 584 East Shore Rd., and further identified as Tax Assessor’s Plat 2, Lot 84 for a variance from Article 3, Table 3-2 (District Dimensional Regulations) to construct a second floor addition to an existing carport/garage which will be 9.4 ft. from the northerly lot line, 30 ft. required. 

 

This Board has determined that this application does not 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 RR80 zone and contains 61,820 sq. ft.

2.             The applicant testified that the basis for the request is the applicant’s desire to have single bedrooms for each child and to provide Mrs. Piccoli with additional office space.

3.             Based on the evidence, the relief requested is not due to the unique characteristics of the subject land; is due to a disability of the applicant; and is not the least relief necessary, particularly in light of the large size of the applicant’s existing study and family room on the second floor.

 

The motion carried by a vote of 5 – 0.

 

Thomas Ginnerty, Don Wineberg, Joseph Logan, Dean Wagner, and Richard Cribb voted in favor of the motion.

 

Richard Allphin was not seated and Richard Boren and David Nardolillo were absent.
