D’orsi

A motion was made by David Nardolillo and seconded by Dean Wagner to grant the request of Scott & Deborah D’Orsi, whose property is located at 20 Grinnell St., and further identified as Tax Assessor’s Plat 8, Lot 292 for a variance from Article 3, Table 3-2 (District Dimensional Regulations) to raise roof on second floor to create 2 story residence versus current 1½ story and extend foundation in rear of house by 3 feet to square off foundation. Dwelling currently encroaches on north and west setbacks, being 3.4’ from the side lot line (7’ being required), & 13.8’ from the front set back (15’ being required).

 

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/condition:

This project must be constructed in strict accordance with the site and building plans duly approved by this Board.

 

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

  1. Said property is located in a R8 zone and contains 9,031 sq. ft.
  2. Proposed addition will not further infringe into the existing non-conformity.
  3. The hardship is caused by the structure being built before the zoning regulations were in place.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 –0.

Thomas Ginnerty, Richard Boren, Joseph Logan, David Nardolillo, and Dean Wagner voted in favor of the motion.

Richard Cribb and Richard Allphin were not seated and Don Wineberg was absent.
