                                                                                    Bulk Area Variance

 

Mr. Raymond Patrick and Ms. Jennifer Campagna are present and sworn in.

 

Mr. Senesky read the Health Department report dated September 9, 2009 indicated that a new septic will be installed for three bedrooms.

 

Mr. Patrick stated he purchased the home in 1991 and is now getting married in May and would like to expand the living space to accommodate the kids.  This house was built in 1922.

 

Chairman DiFrisco stated the Zoning Officer?s denial indicates a front yard variance is needed.  The existing home does not meet the front yard setback and the addition will be 3 feet further back from the front yard.

 

Mr. Senesky stated the location survey submitted with the application shows the property extending into the Minnisink Road R.O.W.

 

Mr. Patrick stated Minnisink Road was widened since this survey was done in 1965.  The front garage was located in the R.O.W. and when he purchased the property the town asked him to remove the garage.

 

Mr. Pignatore stated the setback was measured from the fence which is also in the R.O.W.

 

Mr. Patrick stated that the fence also has been removed.

 

Mr. Senesky stated his concern is preparing the resolution and not have the exact setback distance and the applicant having to submit another application.

 

Chairman DiFrisco suggested the applicant get an updated survey.  Stated that the Board could still hear the application tonight for the addition and come back with the survey to get the exact measurements.

 

Mr. Senesky stated this survey doesn?t show the new driveway for the proposed garage.

 

Mr. Patrick stated the proposed application is for a two story addition which will consist of a garage and family room and half bathroom on the first floor and the master bedroom and bathroom on the second floor.  The existing first floor bedroom would be removed for a den.

 

Chairman DiFrisco opened the meeting to the public.

There being no comments, the public portion is closed.

 

Ms. Valva stated there is a large garage in the rear of the property with a very long gravel driveway which may require a lot coverage variance with the addition.

 

Mr. VanderPloeg stated he would like to see an updated survey showing the exact setbacks and the disturbance calculations.

 

The Board stated they have no problems with the proposed addition but would require the applicant to update the survey.

 

Mr. VanderPloeg moved to carry the application to September 28, 2009 so the applicant could submit an updated survey.  Ms. Valva seconded the motion.

 

In Favor:        Mr. VanderPloeg, Mr. Pignatore, Vice-Chairman Ackerson, Ms. Galfo, Ms. Valva, Mr. Mangold and Chairman DiFrisco.
