Edison Zoning Board Approves Single-Family Dwelling Variance

In a recent meeting, the Edison Zoning Board approved a variance for the construction of a second-story addition to an existing single-family dwelling. The approval came after a discussion on the variances sought by Lucky S Properties LLC, which included adjustments to setbacks and impervious coverage. The proposal was considered to enhance the neighborhood without negative impacts on the surrounding properties or the master plan.

The first case that the board deliberated on involved an application by Lucky S Properties LLC for a second-story addition to a single-family home. The representative for the applicant, Bernard Shire, introduced the case with the assertion that the homeowner, Mr. Hn Perves, aimed to renovate and move into the property. The discussion by the board revolved around the timing of the property purchase and the specifics of the renovation required for the owner’s use. The engineer and planner, John Paul Dupont, provided a comprehensive presentation on the proposed modifications, focusing on the need to maintain the existing foundation while expanding the home to accommodate Mr. Perves’ requirements.

Mr. Dupont’s presentation included a detailed account of the existing violations and the need for the proposed variances. The board analyzed the impact of these modifications on the property’s layout, with particular attention to the existing first floor and how the changes would integrate with the current structure.

During the public commentary portion of the meeting, a resident raised concerns about adherence to building standards and the application of smart construction practices. The resident urged the board to ensure compliance with town guidelines, underlining the importance of maintaining the integrity of the town’s building norms.


The board moved to approve the application, citing several factors that influenced their decision. Key among these was the longevity of the existing structure, the minimal nature of the setbacks, and the absence of detrimental effects on the master plan or zoning ordinance. It was noted during the deliberations that the proposed project would bring about an enhancement to the neighborhood.

The meeting also included administrative announcements, such as the necessity for re-notice of certain cases due to improper notice and the rescheduling of a case involving the Edison Muslim Community Center. However, these did not dominate the discourse as as the variance approval for the single-family dwelling.

The board set the date for the next meeting. The meeting is scheduled to reconvene on February 27, 2024, at 7 PM, where the board will address further cases and community concerns regarding development and zoning within Edison.
