Workers on Saturday began demolition work on the large deck connecting the two rental properties at 3 and 5 Heron Street in North Forest Beach, dubbed by critics as a mini-hotel, on Saturday.
The deck is being removed after the town's Board of Zoning Appeals reversed a waiver that allowed the two homes to be connected in August.
The waiver allowed the homes to violate setback and buffer requirements, and had never been granted in a single family residential district before.
At the last Town Council meeting, a set of Land Management Ordinance amendments were approved that will prevent the waiver from happening in single family residential areas again.
Never miss a local story.
Don Freeman, of Bradgon Builders, said the deck would be fully removed by Tuesday at the latest.
