David Bussan, 420 East Broadway – Deck Extension
Mr. Dorman said this is a modification of an approval granted January 13, 2002. The request is to extend the deck from 8’x12’ to 12’x19’. The deck will be wrapped with panels of siding and painted to match the house siding and help to blend the deck with the house. There will be a stairway to access the deck from the back yard. A variance is required for side yard setback. Bob Gerano, contractor, stated that the encroachment would be no deeper than on the current plan. David Bussan said there is no problem with the east neighbor, and the west side is a rental property. Mr. Dorman said the all neighbors within 200’ would be notified of the variance hearing.
MR. PARRIS MOVED TO FIND THAT APPLICATION #02-002M IS A MINOR MODIFICATION. MR. RIFFLE SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION #02-002M AS PRESENTED, SUBJECT TO THE BZBA’S APPROVAL OF THE VARIANCE. MR. RIFFLE SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Clifton Crais, 234 North Pearl Street – Garage
Mr. Dorman said a year ago the applicant got approval for work on the rear of the house, and now he is requesting a detached 1 1/2 car, board and batten garage with asphalt shingles on the roof. There would be galvanized gutters and several windows and a pedestrian door. A variance will be required for the side yard setback, the garage is planned to be located 3’ from the property line rather than the required 10’. Bob Gerano, contractor said this drawing is very similar to one the GPC approved at 436 North Granger Street. Mr. Crais wants to construct a similar structure with a steep roof. He needs the space to make the turn. Mr. Salvage noted that most of the garages in that area are very close to the lot line. Mr. Riffle asked whether the project is far enough from the tree to not damage roots and was told yes. The group had problems determining the orientation, and Mr. Salvage suggested tabling since this plan is lacking a site plan, property line definition, location of trees, and elevations with correct references, curb cuts, location of utility pole and driveway, and exact size of garage. Mr. Gerano agreed to table the application.
MR. PARRIS MOVED TO TABLE APPLICATION #03-066 PENDING SUBMISSION OF FINAL PROJECT DETAILS. MR. RIFFLE SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED. Broadway Deli, 126 East Broadway – Signage
Mr. Dorman said the application is for temporary sidewalk café signs. The applicant would like to put out her metal tables and chairs, but the chairs say “Coca-Cola,” and therefore must be approved by the Planning Commission. Each sign is 0.19 square feet, totaling 1.9 square feet of signage. The drawing submitted indicates the location of the tables and chairs in accordance with the ordinances. Tracy Smith added that they want four planters to delineate the café perimeter. She has no pictures of the chairs. Mr. Riffle requested that the chairs are kept in a straight line so it’s easy for people to walk through the area. Planters have to be removed when the café is taken down for the year.
MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION #03-069 AS PRESENTED. MR. RIFFLE SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Scott and Anne Gillie, 1075 Newark-Granville Road - Addition
Mr. Dorman said the Gillies are requesting a 600 square foot, first floor addition and dormers would be added to the second floor, opening up additional square footage on that level. Variances are necessary for both side setbacks. Mark Clapsadle said it’s hard to calculate square footage of the dormers. The ridge of the dormers would not extend above the ridge of the house, and they will maintain the Greek Revival style. Encroachment into the side yard setback is hard to avoid in this open space district because the lot is so narrow and the setback requirement is 50’. The existing structure already encroaches into the setback, and they are not encroaching any further. Mr. Clapsadle added that there is a screen porch on the back, and the addition will be the same depth as the porch. The dormers will bring the back into the egress code. Originally they were going to add 4 bedrooms, but they have scaled back their plans. Mr. Riffle thinks the plan is better this way. MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE APPLICATION #03-070 AS PRESENTED. MR. RIFFLE SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Work Session: The work session on the final draft of the Zoning Ordinance changes was postponed until the full membership was present.
Finding of Fact: MR. PARRIS MOVED TO APPROVE THE FINDINGS OF FACT FOR ITEM A UNDER OLD BUSINESS (Bussan) AND ITEMS A,B, AND C. UNDER NEW BUSINESS (Crais, Broadway Deli, and Gillie) AND WE FIND THEM CONSISTENT WITH THE RELEVANT SECTIONS OF THE ZONING CODE AS OUTLINED IN THE VILLAGE PLANNER’S MEMO OF JUNE 20, 2003. MR. RIFFLE SECONDED, AND THE MOTION WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED.
Adjournment: 8:12 p.m. Next Meetings: July 14 and July 28
