Springfield Board of Adjustments Meeting: Several Variances Approved

Board of Adjustments Credits: Jeff Rosenberg

SPRINGFIELD, NJ - Six of nine members of the Board of Adjustments were present at Tuesday night’s regular Board of Adjustments meeting. With the absence of Chairman Anthony Fonseca, the meeting was conducted by Vice-Chairman Greg Roth.

First on the agenda was to approve two resolutions of which the applications were heard and discussed at a previous meeting. The first was for Vianer Orleans of 2 Lynn Drive who had requested a variance for a front yard fence, and the second was for Anthony Matarazzo of 10 Essex Road that was seeking a side yard variance for an addition. Both were approved unanimously by the three members eligible for voting on these resolutions.

Regarding new business, Mr. Lenny Mayevsky of 138 Hawthorne Avenue returned after his application was continued from the last meeting. He was requesting a side yard variance for placement of an AC condenser. Additional pictures and clarification of what was being applied for was requested by the Board, which was brought to this meeting. Ultimately, all six members present voted in the affirmative to allow the variance, but with the restriction that the condenser be placed as close to the house as the manufacturer’s specification would allow.

The second application was by Asunta and Mohammed Abdelaziz of 3 Gregory Road. They were requesting a front yard variance for a fence. Because they own a corner property, the side yard is considered a front yard for ordinance purposes and there are setback rules that need to be contended with. The Board easily and unanimously agreed to the allow the fence because being on the main road presented a safety issue for their small daughter (whom was present). is Springfield’s free daily news source.
