The Town of Troy Board approved a special exception for design standards to accommodate a temporary structure at the Teens for Christ complex, 538 Old Hwy. 35. The action came at the March 11 board meeting.
Previously approved by the board, Teens for Christ will be presenting an exhibit that includes a life size replica of the biblical tabernacle. Due to its size, the display encroaches on the setbacks of the property. After a brief recap of the project, the board approved the special exception.
The board heard the case of citizen Daniel Freiemuth who is looking to build a home in the town of Troy. Normally, when building a home in Troy, one would simply need to get a permit from the Town Building Inspector. However, Freiemuth was proposing construction of just a large garage on the property for now, and build the home later. The concern was that the garage being built was quite large and could be suitable for commercial use.
“I have no intent of using this for commercial purposes,” said Freiemuth. “I’m really just looking to have a man-cave.”
While the board cannot issue building permits, they have directed the Building Inspector to grant Freiemuth his permit, as long as there is no “commercial activity” with the garage.
