WARSAW — A busy agenda marked the regular monthly meeting of the Kosciusko County Board of Zoning Appeals Tuesday, July 12, in the Justice Building in Warsaw.
Among the agenda items was a petition by Garrett Howell to reconfigure two parcels of ground to sell to two different owners in Milford. The property is located on the south side of Fourth Street at the intersection with Higbee Street (SR 15). Matt Sandy, assistant planning director for the county, noted the property is being changed to look more L-shaped where storage units are located behind the laundromat.
Other agenda items included:
• Jose Hernandez was granted an exception to allow a semi-trailer to remain as an accessory on the west side of SR 19, south of CR 75N in Harrison Township. The petition had been tabled from a meeting earlier this year to give Hernandez time to clean up the property, which he did to the satisfaction of the BZA.
• Tim Hedrick’s petition for a variance to allow an existing residence addition with open decking 22 feet from the right of way was tabled until the October meeting. The BZA wants junk and other items cleaned up before they will act on the petition. The property is located on CR 900S at the intersection with Smalley Lane in Seward Township.
• Lex Dalton’s petition for an exception for the purpose of allowing a seasonal custom herbicide application business on property zoned agricultural was tabled until the Aug. 9 meeting.
