 the request  of Settipane Family Trust, whose property is located at 301
Seaside Drive, and further identified as Tax Assessor's Plat 16, Lot 11
for a variance from Article 3, Table 3-2 (District Dimensional
Regulations) to construct a 10' x 14' shed 3 ft. from the southern side
lot line, wherein 10 ft. is required.  Said property is located in a RR40
zone and contains 16,125 sq. ft.

This Board has determined that this application does not satisfy the
requirements of Article 6, 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 R40 zone and contains 16,125 sq.    ft.

2. The relief requested is not the least relief necessary inasmuch    as
alternative sites exist on the property or the shed can be    smaller.

3. The abutter adjacent to where the shed would be located objected    to
the application on the basis that it would block his water    view.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0.
