  The Town of Amherst Board of Zoning Appeals will hold a public hearing at 6:00 PM on May 19, 2015 in the Council Chambers of the Town Hall at 174 South Main Street.

  The subject of the hearing is an application by Mark Moore for property located at 120 Troopers Trail (TM#96A5-A-4B, zoned General Residential District R-2.) for a variance to Section 18.1-804 of the Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance. If approved, an addition to an existing dwelling could be built to within 15 of the rear property line instead of maintaining a 35 separation between the proposed construction and the adjacent lot as required by the Ordinance.

  Documents relating to the request are available for public inspection in the Town Hall during normal working hours.
