Chairman Emmett Walker called the hearing to order. Mr. Walker read aloud the criteria in which variance requests are handled. Mr. Wright spoke on his own behalf. Mr. Wright told the board that if approved his plans are to construct a 30x50 (1500 sq. ft.) metal building. Mr. Wright told the members that he purchased the property 19 years ago and at that time a 30x46 barn was there, but had accidentally burned down and that was one of the main reasons he purchased the property. Mr. Wright stated that he had several vehicles and recreational vehicles that need to be stored in something weatherproof and it would take at least 1500 sq. ft. Mr. Walker asked what the size of the lot is. Ms. Sangster replied 3.702 acres. Mr. Wright stated that the new building would be approximately 100' off the road. Mr. Walker asked the distance from the road to the rear/depth of the lot. Ms. Sangster replied 576' deep and 288' wide. Mr. Walker asked if there had been any comments for or against the request. Ms. Sangster gave the members a copy of the letter (attached and made a permanent part of these minutes) from Donald Baker with no opposition to the request. Mr. Wright stated that the building would be built on a concrete slab with a regular gable roof with a roll-up door and personnel door with no windows. At this time Mr. Walker asked if there were further questions. There were none. Mr. Walker stated that this concluded the public hearing portion of the meeting and now they would go into discussion and vote.
After discussion, the chairman asked for a motion.
VOTE: A motion was made by Frank Lott, seconded by Mark Brubaker to approve the variance to locate a 30x50 accessory structure on a parcel of property that does not have a principle dwelling. Carried 3-0.
