Co-Chair Haggett opened the meeting at 7PM.  He introduced the ZBA members
and explained the Public Hearing procedure.

The Public Notice was read. The secretary noted that all abutters’ certified mail had
return receipts with no letters or comments from the abutters. The Public Notice
had been posted in the two [2] Town Hall bulletin boards, the Post Office and on the www.antrimnh.org website.
Co-Chair Haggett did explain to the applicant the Public Notice in The Villager
was not published ten days or more before the hearing and it is the applicant’s choice to postpone the hearing until this can be done.
Co-Chair Haggett also pointed out that there were only four members present
for the hearing and if the applicant want all the members of the Board present they could postpone the meeting.

Mr. Battaglia answered that he would like to proceed with the hearing

Co-Chair Haggett asked Mr. Battaglia to present his application.
Mr. Battaglia  explained to the Board about the two car garage with a 12 pitch
roof that will match the existing house with the door facing the street. There will be door leading into the basement from the garage.
Co-Chair Haggett asked Mr. Battaglia if he was intending to use the driveway
and curb cut that already existed for the garage. He also asked about how close he would be coming to the side set back.

Co-Chair Haggett asked of any of the Board members had any questions.
Mr. Ledgerwood asked for an explanation about the distance from the road to the garage and about the retaining wall.

Co-Chair Haggett opened  the meeting to the public. Ms. Roberts asked for a
picture of the driveway. Mr. Battaglia asked Ms. Nelkens if he could use her
picture from her packet to show Ms. Roberts. Ms. Roberts is concerned that
Mr. Battaglia already has two driveways. She is also concerned that
Mr. Battaglia will not follow the zoning ordinances and build beyond the lot line.
