Lands’ End Condominium # 2005-32 - Letter to amend landscaping condition. Mason installed pavers over entire area instead of leaving room for bushes. Applicant is looking to amend condition. Rich Swendsen, representative of condo’s stated that the area would just become a place to throw garbage if the bushes were installed.

Mr. Reilly drove by and does not find it unattractive. Mr. Palisi inquired if this would increase the impervious coverage? Mr. Savacool stated that it would but since the variance was approved an ordinance has been passed that changed the calculations of swimming pools so he believes they will be OK in reference to impervious coverage.

Motion by Mr. Reilly, second by Mr. Wolfersberger to amend the landscaping plan per Mr. Savacool’s recalculating of impervious coverage to verify accuracy and compliance.

In favor: Wolfersberger, Reynolds, Leonard, Palisi, Moberg, Reilly and Ardito.
Opposed: None

Application #2008-14 – Jude Delane, 50 Sanborn Avenue – Block 152, Lot 7 – Applicant wishes to convert detached garage to a cabana.

Jude Delane, sworn, stated that he secured permits from the building department to install a bathroom in his garage and received a stop work order when he raised the floor of the garage to convert it into a cabana. He did not know this was not allowed. He is looking to put his washer/dryer and have storage space. He will not have people staying the night or using it for living quarters. He is looking to have an extra bathroom so his grandchildren can shower outside before coming into the main residence. The water will be shut off in the winter.

Bob Burdick, Professional Planner/Engineer, sworn testified that he does not believe there will be a loss of site to the adjacent properties. He believes this will be an aesthetic improvement to the property. Proposed plan meets all criteria for building and impervious coverage.

William McGowan, neighbor, stated that he opposed the expansion of the garage, because he received a variance to expand his home and this would impede on his view from his new master bedroom.

Mr. Leonard is bothered by the size of the garage. Mr. Ardito inquired if he is building off of the existing garage? (yes) Is this an additional building or expanding the garage? (Expanding garage) Mr. Wolfersberger agrees with Mr. Leonard because he is almost doubling the size of the garage. The board is giving Jude Delane the option to redesign his plans.

In favor: Wolfersberger, Reynolds, Leonard, Palisi, Moberg, Reilly and Ardito.
