Two Duplexes granted approval in Ag zones

11 October 2005 Dearborn County BZA Notes
Two Duplexes granted approval in Ag zones

Present: Jim Deaton, Chairman, Mike Hall, Jane Ohlmansiek, Jake Hoog, and Patricia Baker. Also present: Arnie McGill, Att’y and Travis Miller, Planning Director.
Mark McCormack was absent.

1. Front yard variance for a garage closer to the road for Daniel Badinghaus on Sneakville Road in Miller Township was approved. Ohlmansiek motioned, Hall 2nd. All ayes.

2. Conditional use to allow a duplex on 15 acres of Ag zoned land in Jackson Township owned by Carol Vassil was approved after much discussion centering on potential rentals later, rather than a family plan now. 5 neighbors spoke in opposition. Mike Hall stepped down, as he was surveyor for this land. Ohlmansiek motioned, Hoog 2nd. 3 ayes. Baker Nay. Baker felt that it did not meet all the criteria of a conditional use, as it was different in function and character from the rest of the properties that were already in use.

3. Conditional use for a duplex on 2 acres of the 119.95 total of Beiersdorfer’s property in York Township was approved. Two neighbors and one via phone were in opposition citing noise issues with singing and late night parties at the current trailer. The current use was approved in 1982. Deaton read the VERY SKETCHY minutes on that. As the use was the same, but the building was an improvement, the board felt the duplex should be allowed. (This duplex- though two 3- bedroom units functions more like a dormitory) Hoog motioned and Ohlmansiek 2nd to approve per site plan (no additions). All ayes.

4. Front yard variance for Marvin Guss Sr on Market St in Center Township was approved per site plan. Hall motioned and Baker 2nd. All ayes.

Kaiser and Kroger of TEK Development complained about the lack of screening for Tedesco’s strip center and Shell gas near Sneakville Rd
. Apparently Tedescos have not complied with all the requirements of their approval and over a year has elapsed regarding the screening and fence between them and the condos TEK is trying to market.
Legal proceedings are beginning this month.

Meeting adjourned 9:30 PM
