No audience comments
Deliberations
Renner – Not happy with the new home not meeting the requirements; does not think it was done deliberately. Will vote in favor
Kelly - Looks to me like a no brainer…in favor
Reilly – Concern was how the homes line up; consistent with other homes – in favor
Reynolds – Personally has an issue with another case of asking for forgiveness. How it got that far without someone seeing it – but the home is there – will take you at your word
Dixon – Hopefully this will not happen again.
Davis – know that these things happen – unfortunate

Application #2015-37 Palumbo/Ward Home Services – 302 Washington Avenue –Block 20; Lot 19 – Applicants new front stairs encroach into front yard setback and applicant constructed fence and small section measures 7 feet. (Not being heard -deficient notice)

Application #2015-12 – Daniel Friendly – 1401 Ocean Avenue – Block 18.03; Lot 1 – Applicant placed a pre-built shed on property. (Not being heard – deficient notice)

Application #2015-15 – Ken Musto – 239 Ocean Avenue- Block 124; Lot 7 – Applicant constructed small addition to rear of single family dwelling as a result of damage from Super
Storm Sandy. (Not being heard – deficient notice)

Application #2015-20 – Ronald/Judith Skiff – 59 Harvard – Block 152; Lot 14 – Applicant demolished single family dwelling and wishes to construct a new FEMA compliant single family dwelling.
Dan Popovich, attorney for applicant. Ronald Skiff, applicant sworn, stated that he ordered a modular home. He has it positioned on the lot further back to try to comply with the front yard variance. The home will also require a height variance of 37.25 feet. The steps encroach – they come out and go left and right. Foundation provides pilings, break away walls and flood vents. Will bring siding down to comply with foundation ordinance. Mr. Kelly questioned the east elevation of the home having only one small bathroom window. Mr. Kelly inquired if he thought of breaking that elevation up. The board tries to avoid having 37 feet of just siding. Dan Popovich stated that the applicant can apply Azek trim to break up the side. Mr. Kelly said in the rear there looks like there is a door but where is it going? It appears to be deck over deck – the plans the board received do not seem to be complete. Dennis Galvin said the Board is concerned with deck over decks and believes that is not allowed by ordinance. Mr. Davis noticed that the plans say stone for the driveway and he the applicant had said pavers. It is quite a large driveway and pavers would make a difference in impervious coverage. Stone is 100% impervious. Chairman Struncius inquired where the deck will be located. (Off of bedroom 4) Mr. Dixon questioned the two curb cuts and two garages; commented that if the applicant gets rid of one garages and then the home will be more in compliance. Mr. Reynolds agrees – eliminate a garage. Chairman Struncius said this leads to the front yard becoming a parking lot. Dennis Galvin said the board also needs to be concerned with the home looking like a two-family. Exhibit A – 3 – photographs entered – home across the street.
The board is requesting to have complete accurate revised plans.

Motion by Mr. Reilly, second by Mr. Reynolds to June 24, 2015 without notice.
In favor: Renner, Kelly, Reilly, Reynolds, Dixon, Davis and Struncius
Opposed: None
Meeting adjourned at 8:45pm


Attest: Karen L. Mills, LUA
Clerk of the Board
