Craig & Susan Checani, Lot F–017, 102 West Intervale Road, in the Industrial District, requested a Special Exception under the terms of Section 8.6.1 of the Wilton Zoning Ordinance to permit construction of an addition to their antique shop which cannot satisfy the minimum lot and buffer requirements of the Industrial District because of its configuration.
Ms. Eckstrom called the meeting to order at 7:45 p.m. and explained to the Checani’s that they had a choice of allowing the present three-member board to write the needed clarification or waiting until a larger board could be assembled. The Checani's chose to go ahead.
