Mr. Ojeda was present as agent for Mr. Mainade and stated the owner is not sure if the pool will be built, and depending on the development of the addition and the construction of project will determine the pool being built. They do wish to reflect the possibility of a pool in the future. Mr. Abramitis asked staff if new door will lead to courtyard or to outside. Staff stated new door will lead to outside but asks if whether or not there will be a pool because board has previously approved doors in bathrooms when leading to pool area. Chairman addresses door that would lead to pool and clarifies with agent that there is no existing pool plan. Chairman addresses concerns with creating entrances that could lead to creating apartments within a home. If applicant is not putting in a pool than door should not be considered as part of approval until pool is built and agent agrees.

 

Motion: Approve subject to staff recommendations with the added requirement that the bathroom door be removed from site plan.

 

            Moved by Robert Abramitis, seconded by John Busta.

            Motion approved unanimously.

            Chairman asks attorney Richard Sarafan what is illegal paving in the swale. Attorney states it would be any paving for which there is no building permit on record.

 

            Mr. Abramitis states his intention for motion is that if swale was properly permitted than applicant can continue to have it but if garage was enclosed and parking shifted to the swale illegal paving than property should return to its natural state.

 

Motion withdrawn- by Robert Abramitis, seconded by John Busta.

I)      DISCUSSION ITEMS

 

1)     Guidance for staff. Good side of fence to neighbor when neighbor has a fence; solid or chain link. Board width request for 5.5 inch (6 inch board) instead of 4 inch.

 

John Busta gave comment of good side facing out and 6inch board.  Chairman likes good side of fence facing out to neighbor. Mr. Abramitis likes good side to face out, picket fence and not 6 inch board and keep it 2 to 4. Mr. Busta retracts comment about liking 6 inch board because he did not know he was addressing a picket fence and so he would agree with Mr. Abramitis on keeping the 2 to 4 inch board.
