DOUGLAS ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS
MEETING MINUTES
WEDNESDAY, JUNE, 5, 2013

The meeting was called to order at 7:00pm.

ATTENDANCE
Present: Daniel Heney (Chairman), Pamela Holmes (Vice Chairman), Sean Holland, John Bombara and Maria Lajoie (Administrative Secretary).
Absent: Leonard Demers.

7:00 PM ZBA CASE #2013-02 PUBLIC HEARING: Daniel Correia
1 Laurel Glades
Request for Special Permit
Hearing this case were Daniel Heney, Pamela Holmes, Sean Holland and John Bombara. Present were Daniel Correia and Angela Rose. There were no abutters present. A site walk was done by the Board members. The Applicant is requesting a Special Permit to demolish a pre-existing nonconforming structure and construct a new two-story single family structure, attached breezeway and garage with a paved driveway. Mr. Bombara asked Mr. Correia if he was moving the house back and Mr. Correia said yes 12-feet to fourteen-feet back. Mr. Correia said he will need to go to Conservation Commission for an Order of Conditions. Ms. Holmes asked what the area of disturbance is and Rose said 2,080-feet which includes the breezeway. The Planning Board has an objection stating that the proposed structure increases the nonconformity and any replacement should be limited to the original footprint. Mr. Heney said the building is within the Zoning Bylaws and Ms. Holmes said that most of the structures in the area are small except for Mr. Correia’s neighbor. Ms. Rose said that Mr. Correia has a larger lot than all the surrounding lots. Mr. Bombara asked if the Hearing should be left open until Correia goes before the Conservation Commission and Heney felt it wasn’t necessary because Mr. Correia doesn’t need a variance and he is moving his house back from the water. Mr. Heney asked if the septic system will fit and Mr. Correia said yes. Ms. Holmes asked about the tight tank and Mr. Correia said that it would support a 3 to 4 bedroom home and will pass Title 5 according to James Malley of the Board of Health. Mr. Heney asked Mr. Correia to supply the Building Department with an as-built plan. After discussion, a Motion was made by Ms. Holmes to close the Public Hearing, seconded by Mr. Bombara. Vote: Unanimous.
A Motion was made by Mr. Bombara to grant a Special Permit to Daniel Correia at 1 Laurel Glades, seconded by Ms. Holmes. Vote: Unanimous.
Conditions: 1) Applicant to adhere to the plans submitted dated 4/6/2013 and made a record thereof. 2) Applicant shall submit a foundation as-built plan to the Building Department prior to a foundation inspection.

7:25 PM ZBA CASE #2013-03
PUBLIC HEARING: Timothy Dellorusso
60 Mumford Street
Request for Variance
Hearing this case were Daniel Heney, Pamela Holmes, Sean Holland and John Bombara. Present was Timothy Dellorusso. There were no abutters present. A site walk was done by the Board members. The Applicant is requesting a Variance from the required 25-foot side yard setback to a 10-foot side yard setback to construct a 16-foot by 20-foot shed behind the existing garage and along the left side boundary line. The Planning Board had no objection. Mr. Dellorusso said that by placing the shed in this location he will be 10-feet from the side yard setback but will be out of the 100-foot buffer zone of a bordering vegetated wetland (Conservation Commission jurisdiction). Mr. Dellorusso told the Board that he was issued a violation notice by the Conservation Commission for clearing trees and brush in the wetland after a storm. There was some discussion regarding the 10-foot setback but the Board agreed that it would be fine. A Motion was made by Ms. Holmes to close the Public Hearing, seconded by Mr. Bombara. Vote: Unanimous.
A Motion was made by Ms. Holmes to grant a Variance for a 10-foot side yard setback to Timothy Dellorusso at 60 Mumford Street, seconded by Mr. Holland. Vote: Unanimous.
Conditions: 1) The Applicant to adhere to the plans submitted and made record thereof. 2) The proposed shed to be no closer than 10-feet to the left boundary line and all other setbacks to be maintained as required.
