On April 25, 2018, the Development Review Board held its annual organizational meeting, followed by a review of the application for a variance, submitted by Daniel S. Banyai for relief from the 50-foot right of way requirement to access his 31-acre property at 541 Briar Hill Road in West Pawlet. Based on the evidence provided by the applicant of a deed reciting a property description and a survey showing the 30 foot right of way, both of which were created and dated prior to March 8, 2011, the Board ruled that this lot is a pre-existing non-confirming lot.
