Chairman Dennis Haas opened the meeting at 7:00 P.M. and introduced the Zoning Board of Appeals, Zoning Inspector Keith Lasure, Trustee Russ Goffus and Township Secretary Sharon Shaub.† Mr. Haas swore in everyone in attendance by asking them to swear that the information they were about to present, either in oral or written form, was true and accurate to the best of their knowledge.† The people responded by stating, ďI doĒ.
The first case heard was Rodney A. Brown of 4739 Maplegrove NE who is requesting a variance for an accessory building of 2,640 sq. ft. and a height of 26 ft. instead of the allowed 1,280 sq. ft. and height of 17 ft. as permitted in Sec. 602.4 of the Nimishillen Township Zoning Resolution which will allow for the storage of antique cars and tractors.
Mr. Brown stepped to the podium and stated he needs the extra height because he is trying to match some of the rooflines of his house and said he also needs the extra height because he has a backhoe with a boom on it.† The primary use of the building will be for his antique tractors and muscle cars.
Louise Vance asked where the location of this building would be.† Mr. Brown said it would be in the exact same spot as the unfinished pole barn (which was removed) and will sit parallel with the house.† The 60 ft. wide part will be facing the house and the building will be 45 ft. from the property line.
There was no one in the audience to speak either for or against this variance and no correspondence was received regarding this variance.
With no more questions from the Board or further discussion, Dennis Haas asked for a motion for a ballot vote.† Nicholas Reynolds motioned for a ballot vote, seconded by Louise Vance.† All voted yes.† Motion carried.† The voting went as follows:
