WARSAW — Kosciusko County Board of Zoning Appeals held its regular monthly meeting Tuesday, Oct. 13, in Warsaw.
Among the petitions considered were two by Round Table Partners to expand a mobile home park at the intersection of Country Club Road and CR 300S in Wayne Township. The first petition asked for an exception for the purpose of allowing the expansion of a mobile home park with 21 lots in a residential district. The second petition asked for a variance to permit the expansion of a mobile home park with mobile home lots placed zero feet from the existing deed access easement per the mobile home ordinance.
Matt Sandy, assistant planning director for the county, noted remonstrators expressed concerns about the expansion as well as their property values being affected and trespassing problems. The board voted to table the petition until the November meeting because they want to see more information and also want to visit the site to see if an expansion is feasible.
Other agenda items included:
• Edward Snag’s petition for an exception for the purpose of the change and alteration of a non-conforming garage to remain as converted into a residence on Lake Shore Drive in Monroe Township was dropped due to the death of Mr. Snag.
• Great Lakes Chloride was granted an exception to allow manufacturing in a commercial district (creating salt brine and anti-icing materials) on Old Road 30 where it intersects with US 30 in Prairie Township.
• Michael Weller was approved to allow a shed and carport to remain as placed on his property in Silver Lake.
• Matthew Ridenour was granted an exception for the purpose of allowing agricultural products processing (logging and tree service) in an agricultural district on CR 900E at the intersection with US 30 in Washington Township.
