ROCCHIO

A motion was made by Don Wineberg to grant the request of Michael & Marie
Rocchio, whose property is located at 530 East Shore Rd., and further
identified as Tax Assessor's Plat 4, Lot 108 for a variance from Article
3, Table 3-2 and Section 306D (District Dimensional Regulations & Height
of Fences) to erect a tennis court with a 10 ft. fence 20 ft. from the
front property line instead of the required 40 ft.  

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 following conditions:

1. The fence on at least the middle third of the west side of the court
shall not exceed 4 feet.  Applicant is encouraged to maximize
the four foot portion of the fence consistent with proper use of the
court.

2. At least 5' red cedars shall be planted to provide a complete visual
screen from the road around the northwest and southwest corners of the
court.

3. The buffer zone on the west side of the court shall not be pruned below
the top of the chain link fence.

4. The court shall not be lighted.
 
This motion is based on the following findings of fact:

1. Said property is located in a RR80 zone and contains 80,000 square
feet.

2. The conditions imposed above would preserve open views to the water
while minimizing the chance that tennis balls would interfere with traffic
on East Shore Road.

3. The Zoning Board recognizes the applicant's careful attempt to respond
to the Board's previous concerns, as well as those of CRMC.

The applicant requested to amend the application to ask for a 12 foot
fence rather than a 10 foot fence.

A motion was made by Catherine Finney and seconded by Richard Allphin to
grant the request to amend the application.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0.

A motion was made by Don Wineberg to amend his motion to read
" 12 foot" rather than 10 ft.

The amended motion was seconded by Raymond Ianetta.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0. 

BUCKLIN

A motion was made by Catherine Finney and seconded by Richard Allphin to
continue the application of William Bucklin to the January 25, 2000
meeting at the request of the applicant.

The motion carried by a vote of 5 - 0.
