New Business:
Todd and Robin Feil, 229 South Cherry
The Feils wish to construct a porch with shed roof and rail on
the side of their home, to be located 5' from the property line
subsequently adjusted to 8'}.The adjoining lot is owned by the
Feils but is a separate lot, requiring a variance from required
10'.Mr. Feil explained that the edge of the porch will be within
8' of the side property line. He exlained that gaining a variance
rather than joining the lots is a less expensive action. It will be
an attractive and useful addition and will add to the value of the
house. It would be impractical to decrease the size of the porch.
Board members were concerned about creating a problem if the
Feils sell the lots and a new neighbor would find the porch too
close, and joining the lots would seem to make more sense and
eliminate the need for a 'variance. Short of that option, however,
members felt that there should be some deed restriction placed on
the property. More discussion ensued on the location of the
garage, on property lines on the tax map, and the fact that there
were actually four lots, not twor involved. It was suggested that
a covenant to the deed restriction state that the lots must be sold
as a unit and no other buildings could be built on the three lots
other than the one containing the house.
Ms. Caravana moved that the variance be conditionally approved
for 2' because of the special circumstances and conditions that
exist with the lot next door. The condition is that the variance
not be issued by Mr. Tailford until such time as the applicant
submits evidence that a restrictive covenant in perpetuity be
placed on Lot 225 that no other primary residence be built thereon.
If this is done, no special circumstances exist and no undue
privilege occurs, and the variance would not affect health, safety
or general welfare of the neighborhood. Mr. Winters seconded the
motion, AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Adjournment: 7: 45 p.m. After Adjournment, the members discussed
the Board's procedure in hearing applications. A joint meeting is
proposed, and Mr. Tailford will notify members of the date for the
meeting.
Announcements:
Next Meeting: September 23
Respectfully submitted,
