21 Porter Terrace Waiver of Frontage

The application is seeking a Waiver of Frontage and Definitive Subdivision Approval from the Board and proposes to divide one 15,000 square feet lot into:

  • One 5,000 square feet lot (Lot 345) with 50 feet of frontage on Porter Terrace
  • One 10,000 square feet lot (Lot 1) with 100 feet of width on an unconstructed and unaccepted portion of Livingstone Avenue, requiring waiver of frontage because they only propose to pave/finish 50 feet of the unconstructed way in front of the lot instead of the full 100'.
  • Extension of Livingstone Way, an unconstructed and unaccepted way, for 110 feet, which exceeds the maximum dead end street allowance.

The Waiver of Frontage is a two-step process, requiring both a Variance from the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) and a Subdivision approval from the Planning Board. The applicant received a Variance from the ZBA on January 23, 2019 granting lot area and relief for Lot 345 (now Lot 2).
