Variance proposed for Sunset Trail storage barn
Joseph and Shari Jordan of 84 Sunset Trail were before the planning board Nov. 19 to request a recommendation to the zoning board of appeals (ZBA) for a variance. The Jordans plan to build a 24-by-36 foot storage barn in the rear of their property to store equipment such as a tractor and boat. The desired site requires a side yard variance of 20 feet, instead of the required 50 feet. The board approved a positive recommendation to the ZBA.
Subdivision awaits county review
A two-lot subdivision for 27-37 Stissing View Road, owned by Nancy Packes, was before the planning board for sketch plan review. The plans await county approval for a new driveway permit. Packes is expanding an existing barn to create a residence and the new driveway is part of county requirements; however the driveway only has to be approved and Packes said she has no intention of installing one at this time. The application is held up because the county cannot approve a new driveway due to the 55 mph speed limit on Stissing View Road and inadequate sight distance.
No action was taken and the application was expected to come up for a public hearing at the Jan. 7 meeting.
