An Act To Allow Municipal Boards of Appeal To Grant Setback Variances for Certain Hardships Caused by Prior Owners of the Property
Sec. 1. 30-A MRSA 4353, sub- 4-B, C, as enacted by PL 1991, c. 659, 3, is amended to read:
Current law allows a municipality to grant a setback variance for single-family dwellings in cases of undue hardship, as long as the hardship is not the result of action taken by the applicant or a prior owner of the property. This bill allows a setback variance based on hardship to be granted even if the hardship is the result of action taken by a prior owner.
