A short but effective meeting was held by the Marion Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday evening. The public hearing regarding a Special Permit requested by Robert and Phyllis Partridge at 60 Converse Rd. was approved.
The Partridges proposed changing a dining room addition back into a garage, which is situated on the north side of the property, as well as an extension addition in the rear of the home, which met town setback allowance. The property is on town water and sewer.
At issue was a variance that allowed a certain frontage, but the proposed change was a 6.4-foot frontage, which was the reason for the Zoning Board of Appeals approval.
The board read a letter from the Board of Health noting that there were no objections to the proposed change.
