Vice Chairman Dennis Haas opened the meeting at 7:00 P.M. and introduced the Zoning Board of Appeals. 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, “I do”.
The first case that was heard was Timothy Barr of 5210 Peach NE. Mr. Barr stepped to the podium requesting a variance for a Conditional Zoning Certificate for a home occupation for home inspections. Mr. Barr stated he inspects homes for realtors, home sellers or buyers or anyone who needs a home inspection. The only business he actually conducts in his home is answering the phone and computer work. Everything else is done on site. Mr. Barr stated he wanted to put a sign up for his business and was told he would have to apply for a Conditional Zoning Certificate for a home business. Under this permit, he would be allowed to have a small sign.
Vice Chairman Haas asked if the Board had any questions. Phyllis McKean questioned the name of the company. Mr. Barr stated it is Constitution Home Inspections and stated he has his State license.
Mr. Haas stated this is an annual permit and renewable yearly. Since there was no one in the audience to speak for or against this variance and there was no correspondence received, Mr. Haas asked for a motion for a ballot vote. Phyllis McKean motioned for a ballot vote seconded by Louise Vance. The variance for the Conditional Zoning Certificate was APPROVED. The voting went as follows:
