Catawba Island Township Board of Township Trustees

Public Hearing

June 27, 2017

Trustee Chairman Matt Montowski called the Public Hearing to order Tuesday, June 27, at
6:30 p.m. in the conference room of the administration building.

In attendance were Township Trustees: Gary Mortus, William Rofkar, and Matt Montowski Zoning Inspector Todd Bickley and Fiscal Officer Karen Shaw

Also in attendance were: Nancy Kline, Dan Kline, Lindi Finke, Todd Finke, Rich Gillum,
John Kronberg, Len Partin, John Coppeler, Allen Stryker, Glenda Ward, Janice Russell,
Greg Russell, Joann Welch, Lawrene Montowski, Renee DeVore, and Jack DeVore

The Pledge of Allegiance was recited by all.

Matt Montowski said the meeting is a continuance of the public hearing related to application #008772 as submitted by Heiberg, Inc., John Kronberg, President, for Wineside Residences at Mon Ami, a Planned Unit Development (PUD).

William Rofkar made a motion to approve the June 12, 2017 public hearing meeting minutes as received. Gary Mortus seconded the motion. All voted aye. Motion carried.

Karen Shaw read a letter of correspondence written to Attorney John Coppeler from Attorney Marsha Collett and copied to the township regarding the proposed Mon Ami Development. According to the letter, Marsha Collett’s client Stephen Diskin is opposed to the expansion.

Also read was a letter Attorney Richard Gillum submitted to Karen Shaw on behalf of the Township Trustees formalizing his clients, Todd and Lindi Finki’s objections to the rental of properties in the Wineside Project on a transient basis.

A discussion took place regarding the placement and location of fire hydrants within the development.

Matt Montowski said in regard to Richard Gillum’s letter, Wineside Residences is defined as a Planned Unit Development condominium complex and not a hotel/motel.

John Coppeler said he does not believe it would be appropriate to limit or eliminate the usage of the units in the condominium development for rental purposes even though it is a PUD. He said it would be discriminatory when a number of similar units have the ability to engage in rentals.
John Coppeler also said he does not believe it is enforceable to preclude rentals in the development condominiums because the word “transient” is not defined in the zoning resolution.

Trustees agreed 30 day rentals are allowed in single family units. Trustees still need to clarify what type of rental is allowable in the condominiums or multi-family dwellings within the development.

Todd Bickley said 380 feet off of West Catawba Road was rezoned to the RE District. He said the developers need to make certain the development is contained within that 380 feet as the current plan drawings appear to be a few feet outside of the RE District and into the C4 District.

Gary Mortus made a motion to continue the public hearing to Tuesday, July 11, at 6:30 p.m. William Rofkar seconded the motion. All voted aye. Motion carried.

William Rofkar made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Gary Mortus seconded the motion. All voted aye. The meeting adjourned at 7:10 p.m.
