The Town of Taycheedah Board of Appeals conducted a public hearing on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008, at the request of Dale Klitzke. Mr. Klitzke requests a variance to Section 13-1-24(f)(3)(a), Highway Setbacks, of the Town of Taycheedahs Code of Ordinances, to allow for the addition to an existing home that would have a reduced front setback. The property is located at N9030 Welling Beach Road. Members present were Chairman James Rosenthal, John Buechel, Tom Friess, Gale Burg and Barb Bertram. The Secretary, Brenda Schneider, taped recorded the hearing and took notes. The Chairman called the public hearing to order at 7:31 p.m.. The Secretary read the notice.
Dale Klitzke was sworn in. His testimony was as follows:
The back portion of the structure (roadside) is in poor condition. It was poorly constructed.
The current structure is 163 from the center of the road.
He proposes to demolish the attached garage, connecting room and utility room.
He does not have architectural drawings due to the need to determine the footprint prior to developing the drawings.
The addition would include an attached garage.
The addition would have a front setback of 292.
The structure is currently the closest to the road on Welling Beach.
The proposed addition would be more consistent with the setbacks of the other properties.
He needs to be able to park a vehicle in the driveway between the garage and the road.
He is concerned about the safety of small children.
He has received verbal approval from the Fond du Lac County Code Enforcement Department in reference to the impermeable surface issue.
The proposed addition would have the minimum sideyard setback of 10 feet.
The proposed addition would be two-stories with no basement.
Welling Beach is in the process of being deleted from the DNR floodplain designation.
The proposed addition will meet elevation requirements and have 4 frostwalls.
The lot is 90x160.
Appeals Board discussion was as follows:
Poor structural condition does not constitute a hardship.
The structure should be built more toward the Lake in order to utilize more of the lake view.
The setback would increase by about 20 from the current setback.
The lake lot sizes and layouts are generally substandard.
Private roads have a number of established trees lining the road edges.
Trees are a limiting factor for emergency access.
The proposed setback would be an improvement and would be consistent with many of the existing structures.
A drainage plan will require proper drainage of the area.
The owner would need to submit the following:
o Architectural drawings of the structure,
o Drainage plan,
o Appeals Board may need to re-meet to review the documents.
It was noted that the drawings would need to be submitted to the Town with the Building Permit application. Therefore, there is no need for submittal to the Board of Appeals.
Survey staking should be done in order to insure proper setback location.
Wally Thiel, N9004 Welling Beach Road, questioned if the building will be located closer to the Lake. The response was no; it will be to the south.
January 22nd, 2008 Board of Appeals 2.
Dale Klitzke-front setback variance
Ellen Balthazor, N9026 Welling Beach Road, commented that the plans make sense and that the proposed addition will be a benefit to the entire beach. She further commented that both neighbors to the north and south have two-story homes.
Randy Leider, N9036 Welling Beach Road, has no issue with the proposed addition so long as the grade is sloped to the side lot line.
Further discussion by the Appeals Board was as follows:
The proposed addition would improve the property.
The front setback would increase by 16 feet.
The proposed addition would reduce obstructions along the road.
The original platting of the beach roads can not conform to the current ordinances.
Gale Burg motioned to approve the variance request based upon the information presented by Dale Klitzke for an addition with a 292 minimum setback as measured from the center of the road. Mr. Klitzke is to submit final drawings to the Permit Issuer. The motion was seconded by John Buechel.
Roll call vote:
Barb Bertram aye
John Buechel aye
Tom Friess aye
Gale Burg aye
Jim Rosenthal aye Motion carried unanimously (5-0).
Mr. Klitzke was informed that he must substantially begin the project within six months, or the variance will be void.
