Notice of Decision from the Zoning Board of Appeals

Notice of Decision in the Matter of a Request for a Variance for

Application Number #Z2019-03

Owner Arthur Wadsworth, PO Box 108, Caroga Lake NY 12032, of the property located at 185 South Shore Road, East Caroga Lake and identified as parcel SBL#83.4-1-17.5, zoning district LF-2.5, for a variance to the Town of Caroga Zoning Ordinance.

The property owner built a 24 foot by 25 foot deck on the rear of his house without a Building Permit. Code Enforcement told the property owner to obtain a permit and to include a site plan with measurements. During the calculation/review process, it was observed that the deck exceeds his property coverage allowance. Site inspection also revealed a 10 foot by 12 foot shed. The deck and the shed exceed his property coverage by 132 square feet. The property owner agreed to relocate the shed to a place that all setbacks could be met.

Article 4: District Regulations, Section IV: Dimensional Standards stipulates that a maximum of 10% property coverage is allowed without an approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals.

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE: that a meeting of the Zoning Board of Appeals of the Town of Caroga was held on August 22, 2019.

The Zoning Board of Appeals application in the above matter was APPROVED subject to a recommendation to the Code Enforcement Officer to impose a fine as he feels fit for the two violations in accordance with Article 10, Section VIII, subsection A of the current Zoning Ordinance.
