ZONING BOARD OF APPEAL’S
4 NORTH TEN BROECK STREET
SCOTIA, NY 12302
FEBRUARY 27, 2017
Due to the tabling of Case #1: John Garrow for 213 Third Street, Scotia New York 12302 on January 30, 2017 for an addition of a porch/living space the following is a better explanation of the reasons why this case will be appearing before the board again:
- Interpretation by the ZBA under Section 250-80 (A) of the Village Code. Is the proposed project an open porch or an enclosed porch under Section 250-53 of the Village Code?
- If determined to be an enclosed porch, the applicant must obtain an area variance to construct the porch as proposed. The request is for a 9 foot front yard setback variance. The required setback is 20 feet and as proposed, the front yard setback is only 11 feet, therefore, a 9 foot variance would be required. Note: The primary building is setback 18 feet, therefore, with a 7 foot enclosed porch the setback would only be 11 feet and a 9 foot variance would be needed.
