Board of Zoning Appeals will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, at the
All attendees will
be required to wear masks and practice social-distancing.
Two public hearings
are on the agenda. The first is on Richard Nealís petition for a use
variance to allow the operation of a dog grooming, daycare, and boutique
business in his currently vacant building at 102 Brown Ave. The proprietor
of the business would be Tonya Fugate.
Ordinanceís Table of Uses does not specifically list that kind of business,
hence the need for a use variance.
The business would
be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and have a capacity of five to seven dogs only
at one time. Fugate plans to enclose an area on the east side of the
building for a dog run, which would include various play and exercise
equipment. No dog would be left unattended in the enclosure and no more than
one at a time would be permitted inside it.
There would be no
overnight kenneling and all dog owners would be required to show proof of
The second public
hearing is on Ryan and Scarlet Spainsí petition for two variances to allow
them to build an additional two-vehicle garage connected to their home via
breezeway, on their property at 109 Laurel Creek Drive.
The first variance
would reduce the minimum side-street setback from 25 feet to 18 feet, a
variance of seven feet. The side street in question, running along the west
side of the Spainsí home, is a platted but unimproved right-of-way. The
second variance would permit the construction of the breezeway, by reducing
the minimum percentage of principal structure which must be covered by the
connecting breezeway from 50 percent to around 35 percent.
The Spains wish to
store several antique autos and other things in the additional garage.
hearings are also scheduled:
-- BMO Harris Bank
N.A. and Jennifer McLain, co-guardians of the estate of William Hope III,
are seeking a variance for a six-foot privacy fence bordering a backyard
which fronts a thoroughfare, at an unspecified address.
-- Shaun and
Kimberly Connelly are requesting a variance to exceed by 9 percent the
maximum permitted lot coverage of 30 percent, at an unspecified address.
