MINUTES

The Town of Taycheedah Board of Appeals conducted a public hearing on Monday, August 27th, 2007, at the request of Janet Velasco. Mrs. Schneider request a variance to Section 13-1-24(f)(3)(a), Highway Setbacks, of the Town of Taycheedah’s Code of Ordinances, to allow for the re-construction of a garage with a reduced front setback of 77’8”. Members present were Chairman James Rosenthal, John Buechel, Tom Friess and Barb Bertram. Member Gale Burg was absent. The Secretary, Brenda Schneider, taped recorded the hearing and took notes. The Chairman called the public hearing to order at 7:32 p.m.. The Secretary read the notice.

Janet Velasco was sworn in. Her testimony was as follows:

• Their property is located at N7792 Cty. WH.
• She plans to remove the existing garage and re-build a garage attached to the art studio.
• There currently is a 22” gap between the existing garage and the studio.
• The new structure would be 36’ x 24’; 8’ longer than the existing building.
• She plans to install plumbing in the room planned to be located between the garage and the studio.
• The new building would maintain the 77’8” front setback.
• There are steep slopes within 3’ of the back of the garage.
• The house has an approximate front setback of less than 30’.
• She has obtained Town Board approval to operate a ceramics shop on her property.
• She plans to install parking off of the driveway to the north. The area is expected to fit 6-8 cars.
• The existing garage is in poor condition. One of the walls is rotting.
• The small centrally located room is planned for the kiln and dipping glazes.
• She hopes to build a deck off the back of the studio. The framing was built by a previous owner.

Public comment:

R.J. Troudt, N7817 Cty. WH, believed the accessory structure also needed a variance to exceed the maximum square footage. It was noted that the property is not subjected to square footage limitations due to the business zoning approved by the Town Board.

John Buechel motioned to grant the variance for the construction of a garage attached to the existing art studio, due to the deteriorating condition of the existing garage and due to the fact that the new structure will not further impede upon the current setback, seconded by Barb Bertram. It was noted that the steep slopes behind the garage prohibit compliance with the minimum front setback.

Roll call vote:
Tom Friess aye
Barb Bertram aye
John Buechel aye
Jim Rosenthal aye
Gale Burg absent Motion carried (4-0).

John Buechel motioned to adjourn the public hearing at 7:55 p.m., seconded by Jim Rosenthal. Motion carried (4-0-1 absent).
