Chairman Lawrence opened the regular meeting for discussion on the application by Jim, Fred, and Linda Forbes for an area variance to subdivide a 1.7 acre residential parcel located at 5051 Forbes Road from a parcel consisting of 133 acres.
Fred Forbes presented the board members with a large map of the property and explained his plans with the property. He stated that he would like to subdivide a home from the existing large parcel but the lot would become a 1.7 acre residential lot which does not meet the current lot size requirement.
Chairman Lawrence explained that this is an existing home with no new construction therefore the minimum lot size requirement does not apply.
Member Neuman made the motion to grant the area variance. Member Butts seconded the motion. With all members in favor saying “aye”, none opposed and none abstained. The motion was carried unanimous 5,0,0.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:20pm.
Lindsay M. Kemp, Recording Secretary
