Case V-10-16: 5930 S. Rudy Rd. – Accessory building height greater than permitted
Applicant is requesting a variance to erect a pole barn that is higher than 15’ at the midline of the peak and eave. The requested height is approximately 18'9” at mid-point. The existing building is approximately 22 1/2 at peak, so they would be similar. The property is identified as Miami County Parcel ID # A01-072080.
Case V-11-16: 7930 Singer Rd. – Accessory building footprint greater than permitted
Applicant is requesting a variance to erect a pole barn that is larger than the allowed 1200 square feet. The requested footprint is 1500 square feet or 300 square feet larger than maximum. The property is identified as Miami County Parcel ID #A01-084803.
Case V-12-16: 6185 Dayton-Brandt Rd. – Accessory building height greater than permitted
The applicant is asking for an amendment to V-03-16 allowing him to build a pole barn with a height of 19 feet, which is 4 feet over the limit for this parcel. Previous variance for a larger barn was approved (V-03-16), but the height variance was not requested at the same time. The previously approved barn cannot be built unless the height is modified. The property is identified as Miami County Parcel ID # A01-087714.
The Bethel Township Zoning Commission (ZC) will meet on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 7:30 pm to hear the following case:
- Case: ZA-01-17: A request from Gail Halderman, 6476 US 40 (Brandt), to rezone four parcels and part of one parcel located at 6476 US 40, from their present zonings to R-1AAA Single Family Residential. This rezoning request is to allow for parcel combinations and a split resulting in three remaining parcels, 1.899 acres, .56 acres and, after taking .826 acres from the 35.98-acre A-2 parcel #A01-046600, allowing the remaining 35.154 acres to stay A-2 on ground presently used for residential and agricultural purposes. Rezoning #A01-086049, #A01-086048, and one-half of #A01-086047 will be contingent upon an approved variance from the Board of Zoning Appeals to allow for less frontage and less acreage on the lot created by this combination.
