Approval of Minutes:
Motion by Jeff and second by Donna to approve minutes of October 29, 2013. All in favor. So approved.
There is a public hearing and warning was read by Chair for:
Permit Application 52-13-ZBA Applicant Albert & Verna Watson, 1785 Lake Dunmore Road, Leicester, Vermont Parcel # 212225 Zoning District Lake 2, requiring setback waiver.
Board reviewed the application for the already constructed storage shed.
Connie shared that there may have been some miscommunication between Mr. Watson and his neighbor, Jerry Flint, and no one meant to be misleading in any way.   Board assumes that Jerry meant that Jerry himself, as an adjoining property owner, had no problem with it; not that he didn’t need a permit.
There were no questions from the Board. There were no adjoining property owners present and no one had heard from any adjoining landowners.
Board went into deliberative session at the end of the evening. The findings are as follows:
