PUBLIC HEARING:

 

Z-05-07 Benedict 927 Turner Road Area Variance Section 135 Schedule I (Attachment 1) Side setback for addition Applicant Larry Benedict was in attendance to explain this request. They would like to expand their garage by 12 ft. to the side, resulting in a 10 ft. side setback. The addition would not come any closer to the road and will mirror the present garage in appearance. House was built in 1976 and conformed to codes at that time. However, codes have changed, and this house is now considered pre-existing, non-conforming for setbacks.
