Application #2015-04 – 111 New Jersey Avenue LLC c/o Michael Balmann – 111 New Jersey Avenue – Block 48; Lot 6 – Applicant erected six foot fence in the side yard.

Michael Balmann, applicant, sworn, seeking variance to keep six (6) foot fence in his side yard.
Believes the fence looks better at six feet. Photo entered as A-3. Applicant believe that the fence adds an aesthetic value. The fence on the east side blocks partial view of the a/c unit/pool mechanicals.

Audience comments

Mary Faith Nugiel – 109 New Jersey Avenue – Back of applicants home extends past her home If you say no to him she can put up a six foot fence. She likes the six foot fence.

Deliberations

Spader – As much as he understands the reasoning he is looking at the right side and left side of the home as two different circumstances. If the neighbor fence gets denied then the gate side will have to be decrease to four feet.

Struncius – Does not believe that it is over stated. There is a balance to it. You need to have your own pool fence.

Reynolds – Believes the side with the equipment (east side) does keep the sound down.

Reilly – Has no problem with the east side. Does not see the need on the west side.

Ferguson – Believes the fence looks nice and is well done.

Davis – it dots the I’s and crosses the t’s – in favor

Ferguson – It is not going to bother anyone – it is located in dead space – in favor
