- Application of Lee Webster concerning a property located at the corner of Muskrat Road and Rich Hill Road, also known as Tax Map Parcel Number 12-5-33-004.

The Zoning Ordinance ordinarily requires a minimum lot size of 1.8 acres in the RP Zoning District, but allows for construction of a single family dwelling on lots of one acre when the lot is a pre-existing nonconforming lot. The Applicant also seeks a variance from Section 27-304.(B1) to permit a front yard setback of 30.5 feet to a proposed deck and 41.70 feet to the dwelling. Last, the Applicant seeks a variance from Section 27-1900.d to permit removal of 50% of the woodlands where only 20% is permitted.
