When the board first heard the latest extension request a month ago, the proposed variance was tabled until the Demerses could provide more information on when they expected the project to be completed.
Board members were happy with the timeline Michael Demers provided Tuesday night.
“These are the things we have been looking for all along,” vice chairman Steven Diantgikis said. “I would like to see this timeline followed through.”
Azarian was also satisfied with the timeline. He has said the board has been extremely patient with the family in dealing with their numerous requests for extensions.
Before receiving approval to move the mobile home next to their house, the Demerses lived in a hotel for 28 months.
In 2008, the property was assessed at more than $330,000, but has since dropped to $191,300, according to Vision Appraisal Services. The house is assessed at just $55,600.
Michael Demers said the latest extension will give them the time they need.
“We are just trying to get it livable,” he said. “We would like to finally be home for Christmas after six years of this.”
