Order of Business:
Nashat S. & Lisa C. Ghali #06-11
109 Casey Road
Schuylerville, NY 12871
S/B/L 182-1-4 Rural
Applicants intend to replace a mobile home with a ranch style house. Theyre asking for an area variance of 40,000 square feet and two side variances of 28 each.
Nashat Ghali explained his application to the Board, stating that the mobile home has been removed already and that he would like to replace it with a 26x48 one-story modular home. The placement of the home is constrained somewhat by the placement of the septic system. 111 Casey Road has a current tenant; there is no shared driveway. Each site has its own septic and Mr. Ghali intends to install a separate well for the new home.
It was the opinion of Town Zoning Officer Robert Hathaway that the variance should be granted.
James Burke read a letter from the County Planning Board, which stated that the proposal had no County-wide impact.
Chairman Stephen Bodnar read a letter from Isabell Woodcock, a neighbor, which stated that she supported granting of the variance for the proposed modular home.
Chairman Stephen Bodnar asked the Board if there were any further questions. There were none.
Proof of notice for a Public Hearing was furnished by newspaper on September 19, 2006. There were no interested parties; the Public Hearing was closed.
Joyce Waldinger made a motion, seconded by Thomas Carringi, to grant the variance. Clifford Hanehan clarified that the variance would be conditioned on the installation of a well for the new residence. Chairman Stephen Bodnar aye, Bill Moreau aye, Thomas Carringi aye, Joyce Waldinger aye, James Burke aye, Barbara Faraone aye, and Clifford Hanehan aye.
