Voting members: Richard Surrette, Robert Paulsen and Arthur Wells
Darren and Charlene Ross, petitioners
Daniel Wilcomb, 3 Rufus Putnam Drive
The proposed plan to add a 2 car garage and mud room was discussed. It would be very difficult to put the addition in another location. It is also financially difficult if they are not allowed to put the addition on. The septic system is located on the other side of the house to the right. Approved plan has been given to the Town Clerk’s office.
Chris Senecal motioned to vote to approve the 13 foot side setback Variance. Arthur Wells seconded. Motion made and seconded. All in favor.
