New Business: Administrator Sweazy read the application of Tony Austin requesting a Variance on the 25’ required rear yard setback line for a proposed detached garage to be constructed 15.50’ from the eastern property line located at 851 Fox Lair Blvd. Mr. Austin is requesting a rear yard setback variance to allow him to construct a detached garage on his property. The variance will allow the garage to be constructed closer to the eastern property line than the 25’ that zoning regulations require. Should the variance be approved it will allow the garage to be situated so it will line up with the existing driveway and be 15.50’ off the property line. Mr. Austin has obtained utility easement releases on the eastern side property line from all utility companies to allow him to build closer as well as a statement of approval from the Fox Lair Subdivision Home Owners Association. All adjoining property owners were notified by letter and we have not heard from anyone. There are some drawings in your packets to look at.


Mr. Ethington: Where’s this subdivision at?


Administrator Sweazy: Fox Lair is off of Wilsonville Road at the end of the small Goebel Road section.


Mrs. Hoene: How big is the garage?


Mr. Austin: 32’wide x 30’deep.


Mr. Goodlett: Will the brick match your house?


Mr. Austin: Yes.


Mr. Murphy: Has everything been checked out by the health department?


Administrator Sweazy: Do you know where your literal lines are?


Mr. Austin: If your facing the house everything is on the left side of the house. There’s nothing over there.


Mr. Murphy: The tree line in the back, does that just drop off back there?


Mr. Austin: Yes it does.


Chairman Murphy: Questions?


Mr. Goodlett: I make a motion we grant the variance, it will not adversely affect the public health, safety or welfare, it will not alter the essential character of the general vicinity; it will not cause hazard or a nuisance to the public; and it will not allow an unreasonable circumvention of the requirements of the Zoning Regulations.


Mrs. Hoene: Second.


Chairman Murphy: A motion has been made by Mr. Goodlett, second by Mrs. Hoene. Any Questions?

All in favor, motion carried.


Administrator Sweazy: On general questions and discussion I do need to schedule our next meeting. Meeting will be March 11, 2021 at 4pm.


Chairman Murphy: Motion made by Mrs. Hoene to adjourn, second by Mr. Ethington, all in favor, meeting adjourned.
