Mattapoisett’s Zoning Board of Appeals on August 23 granted three special permits in rapid succession. Each of the projects brought before Chairman Susan Akin and members Paul Milott, Norman Lyonnais, and Tony Tranfaglia, as well as Director of Inspectional Services Andy Bobola, was represented by Field Engineering.
First up was Mark Robert for property located at 169 Brandt Island Road. The applicant was seeking a special permit to take down the existing residence and build a new single-family home. After assurances from Bob Fields that the height of the new structure will meet current code requirements and that lot coverage will not be increased dramatically, the board approved issuance of the special permit that saw no public comment.
The second hearing was for William and Debra Poutsiaka, 4 Maple Road, with an application for a special permit to construct a 50-square foot addition to the first floor, a 260-square foot addition on the second floor, and expansion of the existing deck by five feet westerly and three feet on the southerly side. Again with no public comment or concerns regarding the request, the application was approved.
Last up was the hearing for construction of two small additions to property located at 14 Ned’s Point Road, owned by Highlander Nominee Trust of Wayland. One addition, located on the north side of the residence, is planned at 273-square feet, and the addition on the southwest corner will be 166-square feet. Calling the plans a “nice looking project,” Bobola agreed with the zoning board members who unanimously agreed to approve the special permit.
The next meeting of the Mattapoisett Zoning Board of Appeals is scheduled for September 25 at 6:00 pm.
