The Town of Macedon Zoning Board of Appeals meeting was held on Wednesday, March 15, 2006, at the Town Complex, 32 Main Street, Macedon, NY. Present were Chairman Warren Jeffries and members Carl Eligh, John Gravino, Charles Packard and Ron Santovito. Also present were Town Engineer Scott Allen and Councilman David McEwen.

 

Mr. Jeffries called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m. He then explained the purpose for which this board serves and read the Legal Notice as it appeared in the Times.

 

 

PUBLIC HEARING:

 

Z-01-06 Kuntz 1129 Wilson Road Area Variance Section 135 Attach. 1.1 Front & side setbacks Ted & Kathy Kuntz were present to explain this application. They would like to build a new, two-car attached garage and convert their present garage into a family room. New garage would be in front of existing garage, resulting in a requested front setback variance of 12 ft. and a side setback variance of 13 ft. A portion of the driveway will be relocated to meet the new garage. Swimming pool in the rear yard eliminates that area, and adding to the end of the house would necessitate a larger side setback variance. A letter of support was submitted from neighbors at 1103, 1221 & 1142 Wilson Road. There was no one else present to speak for or against this application.

BOARD DISCUSSION:

 

Z-01-06 Kuntz 1129 Wilson Road Area Variance Section 135 Attach. 1.1 Front & side setbacks Motion made by Carl Eligh, seconded by Charles Packard, to grant these variances per application. Mr. Eligh felt neighboring properties had the same or shorter front setbacks, and that this project would fit the character of the neighborhood. It was also noted the variance would be lessened by this garage placement vs. adding to the end of the house. The five factors were reviewed.

 

Roll Vote: Eligh yes; Gravino no; Packard yes; Santovito yes; Jeffries yes. Therefore, these variances are granted.

 

 

MINUTES:

 

Motion to approve the 1-18-06 minutes made by John Gravino, seconded by Carl Eligh. All in favor; minutes approved.

 

 

ADJOURNMENT:

 

Motion to adjourn made by John Gravino, seconded by Carl Eligh. All in favor; meeting adjourned at 8:00 p.m.

 

Respectfully submitted,
