Piccolo v. West Haven
In Piccolo v. West Haven, 120 Conn. 449, 181 A. 615 (1935) the Court opined that the local zoning regulations did not require an exact reproduction and that minor variations in its "interior construction or otherwise" was not a substantial reconstruction of the prior building. Piccolo, 120 Conn. at 454.
Thus, Berliner instructed that "any reconstruction must conform, to the extent possible, with the requirements of the present zoning by-law." 363 Mass. at 774.
