The Block Island Times: Conservation Commission approves projects
Two projects sailed easily through the Conservation Commission at its most recent meeting.
The first request came from Alexander and Karen Taylor of Plat 15, Lot 30-1, who wished to raise the height of an existing barn from 24 to 28 feet. The proposal requires a Special Use Permit and a variance to sections of the zoning regulations (Chapter 4, section 113) for the expansion of a single family dwelling on a lot with two single family dwellings. The project was continued from the Commission's previous meeting, when Chair Ned Phillips, Jr. called for waiting until neighbors had been notified about the project.
Attorney Joseph Priestley was on hand to represent the Taylors. He showed blueprints of the property, pointing out the house, a cottage, and two residential accessory structures, including the barn. Priestley said there would be no changes to the footprint of the buildings, and that the only change was the increased height of the barn.
