CALABASH—The town board of adjustment on Monday denied a variance request for side and rear setbacks.
Thomas Glen sought about seven feet of relief from the required 10-foot setback for a small storage shed and a garage at 1025 Meares St.
The board noted it doesn’t have “unlimited discretion to do what they want to do,” town clerk Kelley Southward said.
Certain criteria must be met.
“They felt that there was not a hardship,” Southward said. “The shed had enough room to make it meet the setbacks.”
