The Hearing: The Applicant seeks a dimensional variance from the Township of Addison, Code of Ordinances, Appendix A, Addison Township Zoning Ordinance.

5.01 Scope: No building or land or part thereof in Addison Township shall be used, altered, constructed, reconstructed or moved within or into said township without a variance except in conformity with the provisions of this ordinance which apply to the district in which it is located. If within the districts established by this ordinance or amendments that may later be adopted, there exist lots, structures, uses of land and structures and characteristics of use which were lawful before this ordinance was passed or amended, but which would be prohibited, regulated or restricted under the terms of this ordinance or future amendment, it is the intent of this ordinance to permit these nonconformities to continue until they are removed or discontinued but not to encourage their survival. It is further the intent of this ordinance that the nonconformity shall not be enlarged upon, expanded or extended, or be used as grounds for adding other structures or uses prohibited. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the zoning board of appeals may grant variances to extend or expand nonconforming structures but not the degree of nonconformity.
5.07.1 Non conforming structures: The nonconforming structure may not be enlarged or altered in a way which increases its nonconformity, but any structure or portion thereof may be altered to decrease its nonconformity.
