The Town of Taycheedah Board of Appeals conducted a public hearing on Tuesday, November 30th, 2010, at 6:30 p.m., on behalf of William Huck, Jr. Mr. Huck requests a variance to Section 13-1-24(f)(3)(b), Highway Setback Lines, of the Town of Taycheedah's Code of Ordinances, to allow for the construction of a home with a reduced front setback.
Members present were Chairman James Rosenthal, John Buechel, Tom Friess, Gale Burg and Jason Meyer. Also in attendance were four interested citizens.
The Secretary, Brenda Schneider, taped recorded the hearing and took notes.
The Chairman called the hearing to order at 6:30 p.m. The Secretary read the notice.
William J. Huck, Jr. was sworn in. His testimony and responses to questions was follows:
Huck proposes to change the front setback from 100', as required by ordinance, to 75' from the center of the road. He noted that Fond du Lac County Shoreland Zoning allows a 75' setback. The home would be 42' from the right-of-way line.
The rear setback would be the required 75' from the Lake.
The side setbacks would be 10' and 15.44'.
The previous home on the lot was demolished.
The new home is planned to have a 24' x 28' attached garage.
Gale Burg noted that the site illustrates a patio 8-10' from the 75' setback line.
The new home is proposed to use 24.47% of the lot's area.
No living quarters are planned above the garage.
Raymond Avery was sworn in. His comments and questions were as follows:
He questioned the size of the proposed home. It is planned to be 2,208 square-foot, two-story home, with an attached garage.
Mr. Avery commented that it is ok with him to build a house on the lot as long as it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb near the road.
Mr. Avery was informed that the ordinance requires a minimum of 800 square feet on the first floor for two-story homes.
Mr. Avery reviewed the house plans.
Rolland Siebel was sworn in. His comments and questions were as follows:
Mr. Siebel questioned the dimensions of the home. It is planned to be 36' x approximately 48' on a 67' wide lot.
Siebel is concerned that the building will be much larger than proposed. He noted no past enforcement by the Town.
He also noted that Huck hasn't maintained the lawn and that it took a long time for him to get a fence around the hole left after the old home was removed.
He also claimed that rocks to a depth of three feet were added to the shoreline.
Mr. Huck's response:
He feels he has improved the lot from what was there.
The Board of Appeals comments were as follows:
The County has approved the proposed setback of 75 feet.
There are many other non-conforming structures in the area.
No objections were received.
A member would like to see a basement survey compiled by an engineer, with a copy to be submitted to the Town and he would like to have an engineer stake the structure.
November 30th, 2010 Board of Appeals 2.
William Huck, Jr-reduced setbacks/enlarge a non-conforming structure variance
Jim Rosenthal motioned to approve the variance requested for the construction of a home with a 75' setback from the center of Winnebago Drive, citing the 75' setback meets the County Shoreland Zoning, further citing the physical limitations of a non-conforming lot that creates an inability to meet the 100' setback, and that the reduced setback would not be contrary to public interest, and under the condition that JE Arthur provide a foundation survey to the Town for verification of compliance with the approved setback. The motion was seconded by John Buechel.
Roll Call vote:
Jason Meyer aye Gale Burg aye
Tom Freiss aye John Buechel aye
Jim Rosenthal aye Motion carried (5-0).
The ordinance requirement to substantially begin the project within 6 months was explained to Mr. Huck.
Gale Burg motioned to adjourn at 7:25 p.m., seconded by John Buechel. Motion carried (5-0).
