ECCA position:  Oppose:
1) Impervious surface much too high and sets a bad precedent for area; 2) R-20 zoning allows for 3 cars only; and
3) Square footage of house allows for 10 people, not cars and
4) There is not conclusive proof that an apartment is allowed on this property.

 Board of Zoning Appeals Action:  Deny 5-0 Item 1.  Item 2 does not apply as the garage is attached.
