Visitors Present: Dale and Barbara McCoy
Citizens'Comments: None
The Chairman swore in all those who wished to speak during the evening.)
New Business:
Dale and Barbara McCov,338 N.Granger Street - Side Setbackand Lot Coverage
Mr. McCoy described the location for the proposed 24x28' three-car garage including space
in back for his convertible to be stored sideways over the winter. He wants to attach the new garage
to the existing one,which will be used as a shop. All siding and trim,roof,and color will match the
house. This plan would require variances for side yard setback ( 2' instead of 12') and lot coverage
24.4%rather than 20%).
Mr. Sharkey asked for details about the distances and fencing, and Mr. McCoy described the
existing fencing. The shed is 2' from the fence,which is 6"inside property line. The Robertsons next
door have approved plans for structure and changes in fencing.
Ms. Caravana has more of a problem with the lot coverage than with the 2' setback,and
members discussed how the structure could be situated so as to not need a variance. It is not typical
for three-car garages on the narrow lots in this neighborhood,and BZBA has to be careful about
setting a precedent. Mr. Herman also thought the garage plus shed was inappropriate for the area.
Mr. McCoy said the GPC wanted him to combine the old building and the new rather than have two
separate buildings in order to save space. Originally he was uncertain whether he would need the
shed,but GPC wanted to know specifically whether it would be torn down so he decided to combine
them. Ms. Caravana asked about a two-story building,but he rejected his original idea of a two-story
building because ofthe size.
Mr. Sharkey is concerned about exceeding lot coverage and setting precedents and asked if
there was anything,the applicant could do without,in order to stay within the code,such as tearing
down the shed. Mr. McCoy said that originally he planned to tear down the shed.
Mr. McCoy asked to table application so he could look at it further.
MS CARAVANA MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION 00-122. MR. SHARKEY SECONDED,
AND IT WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Minutes of August 24,2000: Page 1, 17th line up,change to "ba.s.e.d on concrete facts, not speculation. In the past some applicants have not wanted to calculate lot coverages."Page 2, 19th
line down, change to "O.th.e.r lot coverages are not known at this time. The applicant did not meet

criteria. Other circumstances....."
MS CARAVANA MOVED TO APPROVE MINUTES AS AMENDED. MR. HERMAN
SECONDED,AND MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Other Business: There was discussion about the replacement tree planted by the Presbyterian
Church to fulfill the condition of approval,and members wondered whether the little tree would fulfill
the request. They decided to go over and look at the tree.
Members asked Mr. Dorman to find the Resolution the BZBA passed to see exactly what it
says. They also want to examine the Minutes and Finding ofFact.
Finding of Fact:None,application was tabled.
Next Meeting:October 26,7 p.m. and November 16 ( date changed because of the holiday).
Adjournment: 8:15 p.m.
