BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS MEETING

City Staff Members Present:

John Applegate

Denise Winemiller

 

Mrs. Thomas-Roth called the Board of Zoning Appeals meeting to order on August 9, 2005.

Attendance was taken and Mr. Shields and Mr. Marsh were absent.

1. Mrs. Thomas-Roth asked if there were any additions or corrections from the minutes from the June 14, 2005 meeting. There were none so Mr. Beyer moved that the minutes be accepted as prepared. Mr. Packard seconded the motion. All concurred and the motion was passed.

2. 05-04 - Request from Michael Herron on 1 Hitching Post Road for a variance on locating a workshop eight feet from the main structure.

Mr. Applegate said this resident was building an accessory building. Because he is on a corner lot, the building meets the requirement of not taking up more than thirty-five percent of the rear yard but it needs to be closer to the house than the requirement of ten feet. He is asking for a variance of two feet.

In response to some of the questions from the board, Mr. Applegate said the building would be used as a work shop. It will have a three feet by six feet door but it will not be a garage type door and the building will be used as a workshop and not a garage and would not require a driveway.

Mayor Packard moved that the request for a variance be granted. Mrs. Thomas-Roth seconded the motion. All concurred and a two foot variance for 1 Hitching Post was granted.

3. Open Agenda

There was nothing for the open agenda.

4. Mr. Beyer moved that the Board of Zoning Appeals meeting be adjourned. Mrs. Thomas-Roth seconded the motion. All concurred and the meeting was adjourned.
