New Business

Case #331842 – David & Arlene Angyal

Todd Bickley read the facts of the case. The applicants are requesting an area variance to exceed the lot coverage requirement from 36% to 43.5% for a car port/roof addition. The property is located at 5247 Lawrence Drive and is also known as Lot 2 of Maplewood Subdivision. The property is zoned “R-3” Residential District. Mr. Bickley noted that the Dave Angyal has submitted a drawing showing that the lot coverage will be 41%, not 43.5%, which was based on actual field measurement. Mr. Bickley noted that the 43.5% was based on using aerial photography.

No Board member had a conflict of interest.

Chairman Baugh questioned if a zoning permit has been issued. Mr. Bickley indicated that a zoning permit was not issued. Mr. Bickley informed the Board that Mr. Angyal had called the zoning office indicating that he was planning a roof extension and that he knew a zoning permit was required. Apparently, the contractor showed up one day and completed the project without obtaining both a zoning permit and building permit. Mr. Angyal submitted the zoning certificate application, but it was denied because lot coverage was not met.

David Angyal was sworn in by Chairman Baugh.

Tim McKenna questioned if the area will be enclosed. Mr. Angyal indicated that he has no intention of enclosing the roof extension area. Mr. McKenna questioned if electric was extended into the roof extension area. Mr. Angyal noted that electric was not extended.

Flint Heidlebaugh questioned the name of the contractor. Mr. Angyal indicated that it was Woodland Construction.

Chairman Baugh questioned the reason for not obtaining a zoning permit. Mr. Angyal stated that after accepting the quote, the contractor was on site without prior knowledge and he began the work.

Chairman Baugh questioned if the zoning office received any correspondence. Mr. Bickley noted that he did not receive written correspondence. A gentlemen representing Mrs. Nehls, an adjacent property owner to the north, stopped at the office to review the request and the adjacent property owner to the west called and questioned the request. Neither party expressed an issue with the variance request.

Rick Smetzer was sworn in by Chairman Baugh. Mr. Smetzer indicated that the neighbors to the west are the Brockelman’s, and they have questioned the drainage since the roof extension does not have gutters. Mr. Angyal commented that the roof extension ends at the concrete edge and that the runoff goes to the same spot as prior to the extension. Mr. McKenna questioned whether a gutter was along the manufactured home before the extension. Mr. Angyal noted that a gutter was in place and still is, except where the extension is located.

Chairman Baugh closed the discussion from the floor.

The finding of fact was reviewed by the Board. The Board agreed with the applicant 4 – 0 on Items #1, 2, 3, 4 and 7; agreed with the applicant by a 3 – 1 vote on Item #5 and disagreed by a 3 – 1 vote on Item #6.

Tim McKenna made a motion to amend Case #331842 and approve the increased lot coverage to 41% versus 43.5% with the condition that the roofed area will not be enclosed. The motion was seconded by Flint Heidlebaugh. Motion passed.

Mr. Bickley noted that the briefs for the Miller Boat Line use variance approval appeal have been filed. Judge Winters will review and issue a decision.
