Changes and Additions to Agenda

Variance Permit Request
The Zoning Board has received a request for a setback variance on a Branch Road property. Lewis advised the ZBA will be making a site inspection, and a public hearing will be held on December 12, 2017. In response to a question from Cara Cheyette, Lewis said the property is located at 1377 Branch Road. The owners are requesting a variance in the Zoning Regulation setback for the construction of a garage. Currently I don’t anticipate any problems with being able to grant that, Lewis added; we just have to meet the requirements of the law. Board members discussed the specifics of a site visit and decided to speak to the landowner before setting a date.
Hearing of Visitors
The meeting adjourned at 7:12 p.m.
