WARSAW — Ricardo Vega was given approval for a home based business, landscaping, during the regular monthly meeting of the Kosciusko County Board of Zoning Appeals Tuesday, Nov. 13, in Warsaw. The location of the business will be on the east side of CR 100E, north of CR 1300N in Van Buren Township near Milford.
Screening must be installed on both the west and south sides of the property.
Other agenda items included:
• Terry and Deborah Kreft were granted a variance to allow two residences on one tract of ground on CR 700S at the intersection with CR 100W in Clay Township. Matt Sandy, assistant planning director for the county, noted the board left it up to the Krefts whether or not the second residence will be considered full or part time. Approval was granted with the conditions the residences are used for family only and the Krefts must work with the county health department.

• Josh and Lindsay Stalcup were given a tentative approval to allow an air conditioner and generator to remain as placed on Eastshore Drive, north of Cornelius Road in Turkey Creek Township. The approval is only good if an agreement is firmly reached with the north side property owner.

• Brent and Lorie Cooper’s petition for an exception to allow a Christian retreat center and caretaker’s residence on CR 750W, south of Hill Top Road in Seward Township was denied. Several remonstrators objected to the petition and a lack of compatibility with the surrounding area and traffic impact were cited as reasons for the denial.
