Scotch Plains Zoning Board Okays Modular Classrooms


Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times

The Scotch Plains Board of Adjustment last week postponed until next month a decision on whether to grant a free-standing sign to the Highland Swim Club.

The club wants to erect the sign on a temporary basis on the Martine Avenue property. The board decided to postpone addressing this issue until its Thursday, June 5, meeting.

The next two issues on last Thursday’s agenda dealt with Roman DiNizo, who resides on Mountain Avenue. Mr. DiNizo asked for permission to relocate his existing garage and sought board approval to construct a single-family dwelling. The variance for the first request required detached secondary buildings to conform to side yard requirements. This request was granted. His second concern dealt with the construction of a single-family dwelling. The board found that Mr. DiNizo had conformed with all the necessary requirements and issued him this variance as well.

Michael and Andrea Lenoff of New York Avenue were granted approval to replace an existing deck on their property.

The board also granted a Conditional Use Permit in the professional zone for three Scotch Plains elementary schools -- Coles, Evergreen and School One.

All three schools applied for the same permit which would allow the schools to erect a 2,760-square foot modular classroom addition to each of the existing schools.

Scotch Plains-Fanwood public schools spokeswoman, Kathleen L. Meyer, said the classrooms will be used to handle projected enrollment increases at the three schools.

She said the advantage is that, if needed, the classrooms can be moved. Each is a fully-equipped classroom, she noted.
