With only two hearings before them, the Zoning Board of Appeals members were able to hear the applicants and approve the projects in nearly record time.
Coming before the board was an appeal from Ben Bailey of South Natick for property located at 5 Oakland Terrace. Represented by engineer Christian McCulloch the application requests permission to build a farmers porch onto the existing structure. Seeing nothing that would impede the improvement, the board approved the request.
Long Built Homes of New Bedford for Kathleen Ruane and James Sinning of Chappaqua, N.Y., requested approval of their application to demolish the structure located at 8 Deep Woods Dr. and build and new four-bedroom home and install an in-ground pool. They noted receiving approval of their project by the Conservation Commission for the abutting wetlands issues. Again, in the absence of any impedances, or concerns of the board, the project was approved with notation from Building Inspector Andy Bobola that the new home would complement the other homes in the neighborhood.
