A motion was made by Thomas Ginnerty and seconded by Richard Allphin to
grant the request of John H. Mulligan, whose property is located at 2 Sail
St., and further identified as Tax Assessor's Plat 14, lot 395 for a
variance from Article 3, Section 300, C. (Regulation of Structures and
Land) to subdivide a portion of Lot 395, being 60' frontage by 120' depth,
along the northerly line for the purpose of joining with abutting lot 362.
      

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

This variance is granted with the restriction that the portion of Lot 395
being transferred to James & Karen Mulligan be merged by deed with his
present lot 362 to create a single lot.

This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

1. Said property is located in a residential zone and contains 21,778 sq.
ft.

2. That the transfer is from father to son and daughter in law.

3. That the father presently owns a triple lot and the son and daughter in
law own a single lot.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0.

KALANDER

A motion was made by Guy Settipane and seconded by Thomas Ginnerty to
grant the request of Jonathan V. Kalander (Wm. R. & Louise Kalander,
owners), whose property is located at 59 Seaside Dr., and further
identified as Tax Assessor's Plat 14, Lot 7 for a variance from Article 3,
Table 3-2 (Dimensional Regulations), to construct a garage addition which
will be 6' from southerly lot line instead of the required 10'.  

This Board has determined that this application does 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 14,200 sq. ft.

2. The property is subject to the R20 regulations due to it's substandard
size, the house/residential structure is presently less than the 10 foot
side lot set back requirement.
      The addition of the proposed 20 x 21 foot garage will not         
substantially increase the present non conformity.

3. The proposed site for the garage is the only reasonable location, the
location of the garage elsewhere, given the location of the well and
septic will cause more than a mere inconvenience.

4. There were no objectors.  

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0.

ADJOURNMENT

A motion was made to adjourn at 8:02 p.m.

The motion carried unanimously.
