Michael Mettham’s petition for parking spaces at a North Webster business on Main Street (SR 13) at the intersection with Ward Lane was approved by the Kosciusko County Board of Zoning Appeals during its regular monthly meeting Tuesday in Warsaw.
Mettham operates a dog daycare and grooming business and his petition altered a previously granted exception. There are five off street parking spaces in front of the building that won’t be used, but parking spaces in the back of the building will be used.
Other agenda items included:
• Cara Sills’ petition for a variance to allow a new residence to be built on EMS B74 Lane, north of Barbee Road in Tippecanoe Township, was tabled until the Nov. 13 meeting. The BZA had asked Sills to present a detailed site plan and to work with the county health department, which she apparently did not do, but she was given another month to do so.
• Advantage Real Estate Sales and Development was granted a variance to allow a new residence to be built 20 feet from the right of way, 10 feet from the water and 5 feet from each side on CR 1000N in Turkey Creek Township.
• Debra Snyder was granted an exception to tear down a single family residence on a tract of ground with three residences, one of which is a duplex, on Northshore Drive at Syracuse Lake in Turkey Creek Township. Approval was granted with the condition the face of the deed states the duplex will no longer exist when the property is sold.
• Charles Hayes Inc. was granted an exception to allow two towers on one tract of ground, and a variance to allow construction of a communications tower less than 2 miles from an existing tower on CR 300N, east of CR 400E in Tippecanoe Township.
• Gary Stanley was granted a variance to permit the construction of residence additions on Mulberry Street, northeast of Washington Street in North Webster.
• Joe Hinrichs’ petition to permit the construction of a new residence on an undersized tract of ground on Waco Drive at the intersection Waco Point Drive in Turkey Creek Township was tabled until the Nov. 13 meeting to allow him time to work with the health department.
• A petition for All Things New to allow an addiction rehabilitation facility for women on CR 375N at the intersection with CR 400E in Tippecanoe Township was tabled until the Dec. 9 meeting. Several remonstrators expressed concerns such as how many women would be using the facility, how many staff members would be working with them, security and more.
• Daniel and Teresa White were granted a variance to allow residence additions on EMS B42B Lane, southwest of EMS B42 Lane in Tippecanoe Township.
• Justin Bultemier’s petition for a variance to allow a deck to encroach on a neighbor’s property on Hatchery Road, south of Marine Key Drive in Turkey Creek Township, was tabled until the Nov. 13 meeting to allow Bultemier to contact the neighbor to see if any ground can be purchased to make the deck legal.
