Permitted accessory uses, in order to construct a 10 ft. x 16 ft. shed with an attached 10 ft.
x 16 ft. carport in the front yard. The applicant’s lot has frontage on two streets, and,
therefore, is deemed to have two front yards. The Code does not permit accessory structures
being located in a front yard. A variance requested is to allow the shed with carport to be
located in the front yard. This property is located at 48 Lake Shore Drive, Tax Map # 25.64-

pursuant to Patterson Town Code §154-4 B: definitions, in order to construct a 38 ft. x 26
ft. three-car garage with storage/workshop space above. Patterson Town Code §154-4(B.)
states a private garage shall not exceed in size a bulk area ratio of 50% of the principal
dwelling. The bulk area of the garage will be 62% of that of the principal dwelling;
variance requested is for 12% of bulk area over the 50% permitted. Patterson Town
Code §154-4(B.) also states that a private garage cannot exceed in height the height of the
principal structure. The existing dwelling is 19 ft. tall and the proposed garage is 24 ft. tall;
variance requested is for 5 ft. in height over the 19 ft. permitted. This property is
