Application #2015-02 – Richard/Nancy Massaro – 8 Beachcomber Lane - Block 121; Lot 7.08 – Applicant wishes to demolish an existing single family dwelling and construct a new FEMA compliant single family dwelling. The home is located in a condominium association.

Vice-chair Reilly has stepped down from the following application.
John Jackson, attorney for applicant, stated that he applicant is looking to replace a storm damaged home with a one and a half story flood compliant home. John Jackson referenced Ray Savacool’s correction to the measurement of the home - It is 29 ½ feet in height.
Brian Murphy, applicant’s architect sworn, RA & AIA, credentials accepted. Standard condominium setup. By laws will be provided. Mr. Renner questioned their definition of one and a half story. There was much discussion about the height of the home. Mr. Renner is adamant that the home is not a one and a half story home. Brian Murphy addressed Ray Savacool’s letter. Dennis Galvin stated that in the future they need to be more careful with condo projects and should look at all of the structures at one time.
Lorraine Tesauro, Condo Association recording secretary, sworn, stated that she wants to address a couple issues. In reference to the survey it has been certified as recent as early 2014. The structure of the lane has not changes. It is a unique Association. It is technically a homeowners Association; it operates as one association but technically has separate lots. She wants everyone to live in an improved and safe home. Festa and Favorito are in about the same grade. There is potential for there to be a dramatic difference between unit 7 and unit 8. The association approved plans that were presented in September 2014. When there is a difference in height from what was presented that could be a problem.
Dennis Galvin stated that the association should see the revised plans before they are presented to the board.

Motion by Mr. Spader, second by Mr. Reynolds to carry application #2015-02 of Richard/Nancy Massaro, 8 Beachcomber Lane to March 19th, 2015 without notice
In favor: Loder, Spader, Kelly, Reynolds, Renner, Davis and Struncius
Opposed: None

Meeting adjourned at 9:17pm
