No announcements were made.

Joan began the meeting saying that tonight the committee would be looking at a variance request for expansion of a roof on a non-conforming accessory building in the SR district at 1126 Waller Road.  Mr. Raymond McMaster is the person with the application. 

Mr. Raymond McMaster takes the podium. 

Joan asks for opening comments but since Raymond did not have introductory comments Joan opened it up to the Board for questions. 

Arthur “Trey” Gay asks if Raymond is here to expand a roof?

Raymond describes the project saying he is replacing a roof that fell several years ago and moving it to another portion of the barn.  There was 960 square feet at one time.  It was about 340 feet that fell down in the storm a few years ago.  The purpose would be storage of some farm equipment.  The barn is not that big  and does not fit his tractor.  Raymond wants to make it square shaped rather than L shaped to park the equipment. 

Arthur “Trey” Gay asks is it going to be an addition and Raymond says, no it will be on the NE side, not the South side, and more of a roof shelter.  He says he isn’t making it bigger but just replacing the square footage and putting it on the other side. 

Tommy Dugger adds that he visited with Mr. McMaster today and at first was not keen on the project but after meeting with him and seeing the property, he is for the project.  Tommy would like to say the barn is not visible from the road or the street.  Overall it would help Raymond to get the equipment out of sight. 

Trey adds that it is not an eye sore to the public because Raymond works hard to keep the place nice. 

Bob points out that this project is not harmful to public interest. 

Joan and Tommy ask if anyone else wishes to speak?

Tommy moves for approval of the project and Arthur “Trey” Gay seconds the motion. 

Tommy speaks on behalf of the Town saying that our hearts and prayers go out to Bob and his family because Bob’s wife passed away in the early hours of Wednesday morning. 

Joan adjourns the meeting at 7:09 pm. 

Minutes taken by Cristin Webb.
