Hearing 2:

John E. Smith of 10877 Lockbourne Eastern Road, Ashville, OH  43103, applied for a Variance to build a pole barn 8 feet from the property line. 

Debi Hulse, Secretary, read the Legal Notice which was published in The Circleville Herald.

Dale Hoover, Zoning Inspector, stated that John E. Smith wanted to build a garage 8 feet from the property line.  Current Zoning Regulations require 25 feet from the property line.  The lots in that area are smaller than the current required lot size.  Other buildings in that area are closer than 25 feet from the line.  This building would not look different than others in that area.  Dale Hoover stated that he received 1 call on this application.  That 1 call came from someone residing on Duvall Road.  The caller inquired about the location of the residence.  The caller had no problems with the application.

John E. Smith stated that he wanted to build a 24’ X 24’ Pole Barn.  The barn would match the house.  He stated that he was 22 feet on either side to the property line.  He has a tile in the back of the property which helps drain the water.  He did not want to disturb it.

Leah Black, Chairman, stated that she was glad that the property owners were concerned with the drainage tile. 

Keane Arbogast who is a neighbor on the side where the building will be built stated he had no objection to John Smith building this building.

John Smith and Keane Arbogast both stated that the modifications made to the ditch on Lockbourne Eastern road have greatly improved the water problems on their properties. 

Frank Miles moved to accept the Variance to build the building.  Kenny Cookson 2nd the motion.
