Application Number Z2019-06

Owner Michael F. Geraghty, PO Box 8, Caroga Lake, NY 12032, of the parcel located at 118 West Stoner Lake Road, Town of Caroga and identified as parcel SBL#24.6-2-56, zoning district LF-1 - Lakefront 1 Acre, for a variance of to the Town of Caroga Zoning Ordinance.

The property owner proposes to build a garage that is 24 feet wide by 40 feet long. Article 4: District Regulations, Section III: Use Table of the Zoning Ordinance lists the uses permitted by right, the uses permitted by site plan review and dimensional requirements for each zoning district established by this section of this ordinance. Article 4, Section IV: Dimensional Standards specifies LF-1 zoning districts have building setbacks of 25 feet for the front and 20 feet from the rear and side lines of the property, 75 feet from the waterfront and 25% lot coverage. Article 9, section VI, subsection A allows one third reduction of all setbacks. The property owner would need a variance for the rear setback which at minimum would be 13 feet. The proposed garage would be 8 feet from the rear property line. A variance of 5 feet for the rear line setback would be required prior to review of any building plans. If the variance is granted by the Zoning Board of Appeals and not reversed by the Adirondack Park Agency (APA), building plans for the garage would then be reviewed and a determination would be made about whether to issue a building permit.

The above application is open to inspection at the Code Office, Town of Caroga Municipal Building, 1840 State Highway 10, Caroga Lake NY 12032. Persons wishing to appear at such hearing may do so in person or by attorney or other representative. Communications in writing in relation thereto may be filed with the Board at such hearing.
