Site Plan Review: Tony DeAngelo (332.16-1-24) 3612 Watson Rd., Stow, NY
Mrs. DeAngelo said she wants to expand her current house because her family is expanding and in order for them to visit and stay with her she needs more space.

Ms. Hendrix presented the package to the board.
Ms. Hendrix said they are making the existing garage into bedroom space and building a similar garage onto the house.
Ms. Hendrix said that Mrs. DeAngelo had the septic inspected by the county and it met the qualifications for a 3 bedroom home. Mrs. DeAngelo said the inspector was supposed to send the letter to Brad.
Ms. Hendrix said the addition will be 5ft. from the property line and 44ft. from the center of Watson Rd. 31 feet is the closest the corner of the addition will be from the edge of the road.
