Zoning Plan Commission Meeting

Friday, November 3, 2017

2:00 p.m. @ 150 Washington Avenue
 

APPROVED NOVEMBER 13, 2017

 

Members of the Zoning Committee met at the premises of Tod Beckland at 150 Washington Avenue.

Present were Craig Anderson, Mike Garski and Jill Kumenius.

The meeting was called to order at 2 PM. 

The issue to be resolved was whether or not the building in question is or is not a “portable” and therefore not subject to the permitting process.

It was pointed out to Todd that the double layer of stacked railroad ties to which the building is attached renders it immovable for all practical purposes with which Todd did not disagree.

Property lines were looked at and the building is well within property line setbacks.

The Committee agreed to allow Tod to apply for a building permit to which he agreed. 

Meeting adjourned at 2:20 PM 

Submitted by Craig Anderson (recording secretary)
