WARSAW — During the regular monthly meeting of the Kosciusko County Board of Zoning Appeals Tuesday, March 13, in Warsaw, the BZA approved an oversized accessory building in a residential district for Donald and Tamara Brumett.
The property is located on the north side of EMS B40A Lane, west of EMS B40 Lane in Tippecanoe Township.
Other agenda items included:
• Warsaw Land Development was granted an exception to alter a granted exception, a child care center, by allowing the original parcel to be divided and the site plan changed in a commercial district on CR 200N, east of Biomet Drive in Plain Township. As a condition for approval, the site plan must show a plat divided into two lots and also show drainage, sewage and access easements.
• Michale Ousley was granted an exception for a temporary residence, an RV, to be placed on property for hardship use by his father on CR 500N, east of Cranbrook Road in Tippecanoe Township.
• Gary Domenico’s petitions for a 2,040 square foot accessory building and an oversized accessory building to be constructed 5 feet from the west property line were both denied. The property is located on CR 850S, west of CR 600W in Seward Township. The BZA felt the building would be out of character for the neighborhood and a remonstrator also felt it would be too close to his property line.
• Shauna and Jeremy Young were granted a variance to permit construction of a second story addition, in this case living quarters, on Highland View Drive at a lake channel in Turkey Creek Township.
• United Oil was granted an exception to change or alter a non-conforming use by allowing gas pumps and islands to be replaced (replacing four pumps with three pumps) in a commercial district. This is for the Marathon gas station on Old Road 30 at the intersection with SR 13 in Washington Township, north of Pierceton. As a condition for approval, a restrictive covenant must be placed on the deed stating if any improvements are made to the right of ways, any components of the gas station must be removed at the owner’s expense.
• During the hearing officer meeting Monday, Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation was granted an exception to allow a cemetery in a residential addition on the north side of SR 13 at the intersection with Grandview Drive in Turkey Creek Township. There will be no headstones, graves or urns, but instead a memorial garden will be created for ashes to be spread upon.
