Public Hearing on application of Jack & Karen Rabuse of 81 North Trail, for Special Permit to add a 8’ x 10’ extension onto an existing boat shed, on the lake side of their property (Map 109, lot 21), which is a pre-existing, non-conforming lot.  The existing shed is 15 feet from the lake, but its view from the lake is shielded by trees and shrubs.  

The addition will not add to the non-conformity.  No one appeared to object and a representative from the Tunxis Board appeared to state that the Board had approved the addition.

Motion was made, seconded and passed unanimously to approve the Special Permit.  The applicant must register the Special Permit at the Registry of Deeds.
