Holland Zoning Board of Appeals
Date: August 21, 2007
Present: Sarto Caron, Chairperson
Ray Korny, Member
Don Beal, Scribe
Todd Mayo, Associate
Ron Seaburg, Secretary
The minutes of August 7, 2007 were read and accepted with corrections noted. Sarto requested increasing the petitioner fees by $15.00 dollars to cover the increase in charges for legal notices recently imposed by the Republican newspaper. The Board voted in favor of his request. The petitioner fee charge will be $165.00 dollars. The Town Secretary requested that we e-mail legal notices to the Republican. Apparently the Republican has difficulty reading/interpreting our forms. Sarto will give each Board member an e-mail format to follow.
7:30PM Jeffrey Flannery and Johanna Flannery
Mr. Flannery returned to the Board to discuss a side setback issue and building height problem identified by Jack Keough. The Board explained its position based on the site review. Mr. Flannery presented drawings constructed by Green Hill Engineering to accommodate the 2’3” side setback issue. The building height will remain at 28”. The Board recommends a 3’ indent on the left side (south) of the proposed house addition to ensure compliance with setback requirements. Mr. Flannery will return with detailed drawings.
