The Chairman called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m.

1. Approval of Minutes: Regular Meeting Minutes of March 27, 2019.

On the motion of Mr. Scholl and the second of Mr. Lecher, the Commission voted unanimously to accept the minutes of the regular meeting of March 27, 2019 as written.

2. Application #19-2Z – 9 Brookside Road, Unit D (Assessor’s Map and Lot No. 46 – 65D). Brookside Commons Association, Inc. and 9D Brookside Place LLC., Jeff Titus General Manager; Agent James Bonis. Request for Site Plan Revision to install 14’ x 30’ pre-fab garage building on property. For receipt – discussion.

The Chairman reviewed the application with the Commission. He stated that a site plan revision is needed in order to place a new building in the BC zone but he also mentioned that this lot is very unusual in that it is divided by a zone line: part of the lot is in the RV zone. He noted that the proposed building is shown right against the zone line while the regulations require a 50’ setback from a residential zone line. He said that he had some recollection of either a statute or case law regarding two zones on one property and that perhaps the property is controlled by the larger zone. After a discussion, the Commission decided to seek an opinion from Counsel.

Mr. Lecher asked about the property ownership and Ms. Pardee clarified that it is held as a condominium. Mr. Lecher asked about what constitutes a “unit” and Ms. Pardee stated that the building is proposed for a common area but that the head of the condo association had provided authorization for the application; she stated that the condo declaration will likely need to be amended but that is not a zoning issue.
The Commission also discussed the coverage on the property and reviewed the regulations relating to that issue. The Commission then decided to table further discussion until their questions are addressed by Counsel.

3. Discussion
The Chairman asked if the time period for filing an appeal regarding Application 18-22Z had passed; Ms. Pardee said that it had.

The Chairman also asked if construction was continuing on the former Georgetown Saloon and Ms. Pardee said that it was continuing.

4. Future Agenda Items
Continuing of discussion of application 19-2Z.

5. Communication
There was no discussion under this agenda item.

6. Adjournment
On the motion of Mr. Lecher and the second of Ms. Atamian, the Commission voted unanimously to adjourn the meeting at 7:50 p.m.
