AUGUST 11, 2015
6:30 P.M.

Members present: Chairman Jerome Bord, John Buechel, Tom Friess, Erv Karls and Jason Meyer and Secretary Brenda Schneider.

The purpose of the public hearing was to consider a variance requested by Adam & Tracy Spies. The Spies requested an exception to Section 13-1-24(f)(3)(a), Highway Setback Lines, of the Town of Taycheedah Code of Ordinances, to allow for the construction of a detached garage with a reduced front setback.

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.

Adam Spies was sworn in. His testimony and responses to questions were follows:
Unique features of the lot include the placement of the existing home and the need to maintain proper drainage.
Due to these unique features, the only reasonable location for the garage would be to the east of the home, between the house and the road.
Approval of the variance would not be contrary to the public interest due to the fact that it would not impact anyone in a negative way. If the variance is denied, the garage would be placed on the south back area of the lot. Building at this alternate site would negatively affect the neighbors' drainage and would cause dirty run-off into the Lake.
Shoreland Zoning has approved the proposed location after a few minor modifications.
They own the second last home on a dead-end private road.
He contacted all six of his neighbors. No one objected to the proposed building site.
The garage will be 840 sq. ft. located 10' from the road edge.
He also plans a 652 sq. ft. addition to the house.
Their lot is 1.131 acres.
His father owns the property across the road. This property cannot be split into lots less than 5 acres.
Their hardship is that the current 22' x 22' garage is too small for his truck and there is no storage room for toys, equipment, etc. He prefers to not leave these items outside.
There is a neighboring structure within 150 feet to the north that is approximately 15-18 from the edge of the road. To the south there is a pole shed on Hopokoekau that is 10-15 from the edge of the road.

No one spoke in support of the variance.

No one spoke in opposition to the variance.

Chairman Bord declared the public hearing closed at 6:45 p.m.

The Board of Appeals comments were as follows:
The northern location would block the view of the house from the road.
Runoff would negatively impact the Lake and the neighboring property.
The need for adequate storage.
Limitations of the lot size and the land configuration.
The enforcement of the setbacks in the Town's Zoning Ordinance and the County Shoreland Zoning Ordinance.

Motion by Erv Karls, second by John Buechel, to approve the variance for a front setback of 10' from the edge of the road for the construction of a detached garage as requested, citing limitations due to the configuration of the lot, limitations of Shoreland Zoning and the elimination of any negative impact on drainage.

Roll Call vote:
Jason Meyer aye Tom Friess aye
Erv Karls aye John Buechel aye
Jerome Bord aye Motion carried (5-0).

The ordinance requirement is to substantially begin the project within 6 months.

Motion by John Buechel, second by Jason Meyer, to adjourn at 6:52 p.m. Motion carried (5-0).
