Ok, I have a question for you guys. Here is the quick summary of the situation:
A small town allows an unlimited number of horses in a certain zoning area. There are required setbacks for barns. A horse owner living in the zone wishes to use their garage as a barn and seeks a variance for the setbacks. The variance is granted with the condition that no more than two horses can be housed on the property.
Property owner would like to get a 3rd horse. They build a new barn that meets setback requirements. They convert the garage back to a garage and no longer need the variance. Can they then keep 3 horses on the property since the underlying zoning does not place a limit on the # of horses?
I think they should be able to add another horse as long as the garage is indeed a garage once again. What do you think?
