Public Hearings

LU# 6-14-5: Danny Thoma - Block 103.21, Lot 1, - Bulk Variance for Deck Stairs within the Front Yard Setback

Mr. Thoma, the applicant, came forward and was sworn in by the board attorney. Mr. Thoma explained he was not aware that he needed a permit or a bulk variance to build a new porch and steps because of the front yard setbacks. Mr. Thoma did not think it would be a problem. According to Mr. Thoma the new porch and steps are more conducive to the driveway and entrance to his home. The old porch was dilapidated. Mr. Stoner discussed his review letter. Diane Wexler commented that the new porch/deck is a definite improvement.

Motion: Mayor Marotta made a motion that the applicant be granted the bulk variance. Mr. Rolando seconded. ROLL CALL: MAROTTA - Y, WEXLER - Y, RIZZUTO - Y, THEOBALD - Y, SPOERL - Y, TADRICK - Y, ROLANDO - Y, SEUFERT - Y, RAPERTO - Y. PASSED.
