New Business

Case # 068005 Joseph Mlynek

Secretary Erwin read the facts of the case. The applicant proposes an addition to the dwelling located at 4121 N. Grove Road and he is requesting a rear yard setback from thirty-five (35) feet to twenty-one (21) feet.

The zoning inspector received no correspondence.

Chairman Baugh questioned if any Board member had a conflict. No conflict existed for the Board members.

Jon Horn was sworn in by Chairperson Bryan Baugh. Mr. Horn indicated that the applicant proposes a master suite and the architect drew up the plans. Mr. Horn met with the association who has approved the addition. Mr. Horn noted that he then met with Mr. Bickley, at which time it was noted that the rear setback would not be met. The variance application was then submitted.

Chairman Baugh questioned the lot coverage. The drawing indicated lot coverage at 19% and the “R-1” District lot coverage requirement is 33%.

Chairman Baugh closed discussion from the floor.

The Board reviewed the finding of fact. The Board agreed with item number 1 that there would be beneficial use of the property without a variance, determined it was not substantial (#2), agreed with the applicant’s statement concerning #3 and #4, agreed that the property owner purchased the property without the knowledge of zoning, by a vote of 3 – 2 agreed with the applicant’s statement for #6, and agreed with #7.

Tim McKenna made a motion to approve application #068005. The motion was seconded by Flint Heidlebaugh. By voice vote, motion passed unanimously.

Chairman Baugh reminded Mr. Horn that a zoning certificate cannot be issued until the minutes are approved by the Board at its next regularly scheduled meeting.


Sandra Erwin moved to adjourn the meeting. Doug Blackburn seconded the motion. The meeting was adjourned at 6:12 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
