Cal. No.: 16931 Appl. No.: 374052 Date & Time: Wed., Feb. 15th, 2012, 5:00 p.m. Case No.: 2A

Dear Ms. Brown-Sow:
Please accept this letter on behalf of the Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”) which represents the neighbors of
the Mayfair Community. In reviewing the Zoning Board of Adjustment’s Notice, the Applicant/Owner proposes:
“Permit for a Nail Salon with a Sign as Permitted in C-1 Commercial on the First
(1st) Floor in the Same Building with an Existing Single Family Dwelling Above.”
We OPPOSE this Variance.
The Mayfair Civic Association (MCA), the Owners/Applicants and their Attorney, and the Neighbors met last Monday Evening, February 6, 2012. Numerous concerns were voiced by the Neighbors, and the Civic Association; such as Parking (which is an existing nuisance), Ventilation (due to the Use of Odor-Emitting Chemicals), and the Use (Commerical).
There are numerous vacant storefronts, and locations in the area which would better serve potential customers, and the Neighborhood, as a Whole.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at the numbers below.
Very Truly Yours,
Joseph J. DeFelice, Esq. Peter J. McDermott
President Secretary/Zoning Chair.
