WOODBURY — The Zoning Commission approved an application for an “adjustable” pergola for outdoor dining at 694 Main St. South, briefly discussed an enforcement issue, then spent the second half of its meeting on Tuesday, March 23, discussing regulation revisions.
Carole Peck, the applicant for the pergola, explained the term “adjustable” meant the top part of the structure was louvered, allowing the slats to be opened or closed.
After hearing that explanation, commissioners were comfortable moving forward with an approval.
Commissioners were also comfortable with a homeowner’s handling of a possible zoning violation at 346 Quassapaug Rd. John Eimer said he purchased the property last year and was asked by the seller’s real estate agent if it might be possible for him to allow the seller’s son to continue storing items for his business on a rear portion of the property.
He was agreeable to that request, assuming the business use was allowed because it had been part of the property for some time. Upon being told it was considered a home-based business without a permit, Mr. Eimer informed the seller’s son that he would have 30 days to remove his equipment from the location.
The Public Hearing for the expansion of parking at 506 Main St. North was continued to the next meeting at the applicant’s request.
