We received approval from the town last night for the 2 variances that we requested. At our first meeting, on May 20th, the town took issue with our request for a variance to have the driveway be 8.3 feet from the property line. Zoning requires 20 feet. They asked us to provide an alternative plan, shifting the house to the east by 12 feet. By moving the house to the east we ended up in the steep slopes on our property, causing us to request additional variances for the retaining wall heights and steep slope violations. Upon presenting the new site plan last night to the board, they agreed that the original plan was a better design and approved it.
