Review Agenda: Reviewed agenda. Approval of Minutes of November 10, 2015: Motion by Donna and second by Bill to approve minutes of November 10, 2015. All in favor. So approved. New Business: Notice of Hearing: Churchill Setback Waiver There was a notice of Environmental Court telephone conference hearing for Monday, February 29, 2016 at 1:30 p.m. regarding the Churchill setback waiver. Julie provided copies of the after photos of the carport and map. There was discussion whether Kelly moved one of the buildings or just changed the roof on the other. The building looks different, but no one could determine exactly what he did. He may have moved one down the hill a little closer to the lake. The Board needs to make a decision if they want to defer to the Court for a decision or come back to the Board. There was no indication on the Court’s notice that the interested parties were notified. Bill stated that he wasn’t happy with what Kelly has done, but he doesn’t want to put the Town through a lot of expense, if the neighbors have backed off, but he doesn’t know that for sure. Bill thinks we should at least have something in writing from the neighbors that they are agreeable. The Board was concerned that they don’t see where the interested parties were notified by the Court. Bill thinks there should be something in the file from the complainants that they are happy with the changes Kelly made. Bill wanted to make sure that it is still on record that it is a non-conforming building. Motion by Bill and second by Donna to accept the Environmental Court’s decision as long as the interested parties are amendable. All in favor. So approved. Old Business: None Public Comment: None Adjourn: Motion by Donna to adjourn ZBA meeting at 6:35 p.m. All in favor. So approved. Respectfully submitted, Sandra L. Trombley, Secretary
