Application #2008-30 – Ann C. Varosi – 307 Baltimore/302 Chicago Avenue – Block 108; Lots 21 & 22 – Applicant wishes to demolish a single family dwelling on lot 22 and subdivide the lot into two lots. Existing Lot 21 rear property line would be moved. There are two existing principal structures located on lot 21.

Carried from January 21, 2010 without notice

Steven A. Pardes, attorney for applicant stated that they will present the rest of the application but would like to carry to another meeting when seven (7) board members are present to vote. Al Varosi, applicant’s son, presented three (3) different set of drawings that the applicant might build on the lot. Mr. Leonard commented that he thought the board had requested to see what was being built, not what might be built. Steve Pardes replied that it would be hard to do; that the applicant was not sure exactly what would be built. Dennis Galvin stated that the applicant still needs to prove special reasons and that if aesthetics is the special reason the board would need to know exactly what is being built. Chairman Struncius believed he was going to see what exactly was being built this evening. Dennis Galvin reviewed the suggested conditions and Chairman Struncius added that he thought it was important that since the lots were so large that it is important that the lots be restricted to no further structure development in the future. Chairman Struncius is concerned that this will be two very big houses on these lots and we want to control the size. Dennis Galvin said that you can make them be one-story. Mr. Reilly said that the board wants to limit the size of the homes on the lots. Dennis referred to his notes and Greg Cox’s concerns. Dennis Galvin stated that it is essential to the proofs that they know what the homes will look like. Steve Pardes stated that they will take a limitation on the footprint. Chairman Struncius said he needs to know there is some control on the project; if we had a basic elevation we would have had something. Chairman Struncius said if Steve Pardes puts together a summary and they will either proceed on a vote with or without elevations. Steve Pardes said that he did an easement search and there is a utility easement on the Varosi property for electric and telephone on the northern property line; it does not give any specifics.
