So I have to add driveway space, and I had to call the dmv today because they own the road in front of my house to see if I could pave a wider access way. I've never talked to so many government employees...and my husband is in the AF!! And I have to ask for variances to the zoning code in regards to the size lot they require. We're on 1/3 acre...they want 1 full acre. As far as I know 1/3 acre in my township is a pretty decent lot, we're lucky. At first I was overwhelmed...I didn't think it would be possible, but now that I've seen the drawing Sherry worked so hard to draw up, and I've had time to sit down and write a speech...I think it is important that I follow through with it, if for nothing else than my own personal satisfaction.
Here is the front cover of the report I created for the board members and the other people who will be there for the hearing (10 in total.)
My testimony...it's 7 pages and if I figured I could simply read it...but it's 10 minutes long, oy vey! I have to address all points though.
The outline I created for the board members, etc to follow along. Hopefully, they appreciate my effort and don't just dismiss me.
The close up of the proposed driveway alterations. Sherry did a great job on it...I just thought it'd be easier to see magnified. :)
The meeting is Wednesday evening at 5:30pm and I'm rather nervous. I haven't had to stand up in front of people in a long time and I get very anxious with stage-fright. But I wrote my spech today. It sounds good...at least to me. I think I've answered and explained all the points and hopefully most of their questions.
Wish me luck...I'm surely gonna need it!
