[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of East Hills 1-21-1997 by L.L. No. 3-1997. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of East Hills does hereby enact this chapter, which shall be known and cited as "Administration and Enforcement of Building and Zoning Codes."
The purpose of this chapter is to ensure compliance with the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Construction Code, the Nassau County Fire Prevention Code and Chapter 271, Zoning, to educate the public that the community is serious about safety standards, to protect the citizens and to install confidence that public safety has been provided for.
In their interpretation and application, the provisions of this chapter shall be held to be the minimum requirements adopted. Whenever this chapter imposes greater restrictions than are imposed or required by existing provisions of law or ordinance or by any other rules, regulations or permits adopted or issued at any time, the provisions of this chapter shall control. Whenever the requirements of this chapter differ from the requirements of another existing local law of the Village, then the more drastic shall govern.
[Added 3-11-2013 by L.L. No. 2-2013]
A lot held in single and separate fee ownership, which was conforming at the time a new ordinance was adopted or amended, but thereafter became a nonconforming lot by having street frontage, area, or width at the building line less than required by the adoption or amendment of a new ordinance, shall be exempt from complying with the new minimum area ordinance.
If an application for a building permit is made to construct a building or structure upon a nonconforming lot, no variance shall be required to authorize the issuance of the requested building permit so long as the proposed structure, by itself, does not violate any of the requirements of the regulations in effect at the time of the application.
