Chairman Emmett Walker called the hearing to order. Mr. Walker read aloud the criteria and procedures that the board considers when making decisions. At this time, Mr. Walker read aloud the variance request. Mr. Mitchell was present and spoke on his own behalf. Mr. Mitchell told the board that he would like to enclose his existing carport and make it a bedroom and bathroom and then he wants to add a new carport out to the side and still be able to have access off of his house. Mr. Walker asked if he was planning on cutting any of the existing carport off where the two big doors are. Mr. Mitchell stated that his plans are to close those up with windows, and where you pull into the carport from the front now, you will pull in from the side. Mr. Walker asked the members if they had any questions. Mr. Carney stated that property that touches water, and in that immediate area, just needs to be done right because of the fact that it really affects the value of the property, and other than that, he doesn‚t have anymore comments. Mr. Walker asked if that was the property that was owned by the Stuckey‚s. Mr. Mitchell replied yes. At this time, Mr. Walker asked if they had anything for or against the request. Ms. Sangster replied no and that she had talked with Carl Gamble and he did not see a problem with the variance request in reference to the existing road. At this time, Mr. Walker asked if there were any 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 Mark Brubaker seconded by J. C. Clark to approve the variance request to reduce the required 35‚ front yard setback to 18‚ for the purpose of adding a 25x33 open carport to the existing single-family dwelling. Carried unanimously
