Mr. Dacquisto offered background information regarding the application for the plot split, indicating that the lots meet the minimum standard of 75’ wide, and that the owner has not been able to locate a unity of title for the property. Mr. Dacquisto stated that there is currently a home on the property and reviewed the County requirements for a plot split which states that a split is not permitted so long as there is a home on the lot. Mr. Dacquisto indicated that Staff recommends approval of the application with certain conditions which he read into the record, the first one being that the house on the property must be demolished prior to any further action. Another condition involves obtaining an Opinion of Title, which following a brief discussion amongst the Board, should confirm the absence of a Unity of Title document. Both the current owner of the property, Mr. Reyes and the perspective buyer, Mr. Sher, were present and addressed the Board, responding to questions posed. Following Board discussion, Mr. Abramitis moved to deny the application. This motion died for lack of a second. Additional discussion amongst the Board ensued, with individual Board Members expressing their opinions on the feasibility of splitting the plot to allow for two homes to be built. Subsequent to the lengthy discussion, Mr. Abramitis again moved to deny the application. Mr. Fernandez seconded the motion. The resulting vote was 2 to 3 in favor of the motion to deny. That motion failed. Mr. Zelkowitz then moved to approve the application subject to the Staff conditions as noted.
