New Business:

Marna and Kimball Lombardi, 128 Thresher Street

The Lombardis are requesting a variance for a 4' setback

from the north side of the house to lot line, which does not need

approval from Granville Planning Commission because it is not in

the Historical District. Mr. Lombardi stated that it is a

partially two-story 130-year-old house in need of renovations in

kitchen and family room, which would require extending this 22'

section of the house to 4' from lot line. The family room was

added to the back of the house several years ago, and this plan

would tie this space into the main house. He explained that

there is no other feasible way of renovating within the zoning

ordinanceco--sts would be prohibitive, and they would have

problems tieing the extension in with the rest of the house. The

neighbors were contacted, and one positive letter was received by

the Lombardis.

Mr. Meteer applied their needs to the current ordinance

document: 1) Are there special circumstances peculiar to the

land or structure which are not applicable to other houses in the

area?They are trying to keep as much greenspace as possible, but

space is limited; houses are close together in the neighborhood.

2) Would a literal interpretation of the provisions of the

zoning ordinance deprive applicant of rights commonly enjoyed by other properties in the same area? Since other homes in the area have long narrow lots, many are close to the lot .lines and this

request is not in excess of what others already enjoy.

3) Do the special circumstances result from actions of the

applicant? No, they did not create the situation; when these

houses were built, it was standard policy to position them rather

close together. The appearance of the home they bought, both

inside and outside, would be enhanced by a new consistent house

line.

4) Would granting the variance confer to applicant any

undue privilege denied by this ordinance to others in the area?

No, because others in the area enjoy the same privileges the

Lombardis want.

5) Would granting the variance adversely affect health,

safety and general welfare of other persons residing or working

in the area? BZBA members discussed the future appearance and

came to the conclusion that it would be an attractive renovation,

and no health or safety issues were relevant.

Based on these criteria, Mr. Bellman moved to approve the

request for variance of a 4' variance from the lot line. Mr.'

Winters seconded, AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.

Election of new officers: Consensus of the group felt that the

most important qualification for officers was experience;

therefore, Mr. Krone nominated Ashlin Caravana as Chair and Mr.

Meteer. as Vice Chair. Mr. Winters seconded, AND THE NOMINATION

WAS APPROVED BY ACCLIMATION.
