The Zoning Board of Appeals approved three variances that allowed the project plans to proceed. These included reducing the rear yard open space from 520 square feet to zero, reducing the minimum lot area from 8,000 square feet to 7,721 square feet, and reducing the number of required parking spaces from eight to seven.
