Staff Report

David A. Dacquisto AICP, Director, Planning and Zoning

Report Date

September 24, 2010





Applicant is proposing to convert the space now occupied by an attached garage to a master bedroom and to add a new attached garage to the north of the existing attached garage.


The master bedroom is approximately 24 feet X 28  feet =  672 square feet and includes a master bath and walk in closet.  The new attached 2 stall garage is approximately 23 feet wide X 20 feet deep = 460 square feet.


The driveway will be shortened to accommodate the new garage otherwise it will not be changed.  If the driveway is to be changed in any other way it must be brought into compliance with zoning code requirements.


The plans do not indicate the location of an existing or proposed septic system.




Septic system must be sized and located to accommodate the new construction.


The improvements are well integrated into the existing structure.


The application does not fall into the category of garage conversion although the existing garage space is being converted to other uses, as a new attached garage is being constructed


The proposal is consistent with the technical provisions of the Zoning Code.




Planning and Zoning staff recommends APPROVAL of the site plan with a finding that it is consistent with the technical provisions of the Code.  However, the Planning Board must make a finding that the proposed improvements are harmonious with the community, as required in Section 523 of the Code and, in that regard, may add further conditions or delete or modify staff recommended conditions, deny the application, or continue the item for future consideration.  Should the board find that the applicant merits approval, staff recommends that the following conditions apply:


1)      Applicant to secure necessary DERM or Department of Health approval for the septic system prior to the issuance of a village building permit.

2)      Applicant to meet all applicable code provisions at the time of permitting.

3)      This zoning permit will lapse and become invalid unless the work for which it was approved is started within one (1) year of the signing of the development order by the board chair, or if the work authorized by it is suspended or abandoned for a period of at least one (1) year.
