CARLISLE CITY HALL

Chairperson Crowder called the meeting to order at 6:31 PM in the Carlisle City Hall. The following members were present and absent:

PRESENT: Paul Thoman, Jerry Jones, Tim Crowder, Daphne Sayers and Mark Zirkelbach

ABSENT: None

Motion by Sayers, seconded by Jones to approve the meeting minutes for Wednesday, 23 August 2017. Motion carried unanimously.

At 6:32 PM, Chairman Crowder opened the Public Hearing on Application from City of Carlisle for variances on the required front yard, rear yard, and north side yard setbacks for a lot in the a M-1 Light Industrial District. The variances requested is 8 feet for the front yard (a forty-five-foot setback is required), 30 feet for the rear yard (a fifty-foot setback is required), and a 20-foot setback on the north side yard (normally a 30-foot side yard setback is required). The property is located at 30 Market Street with a legal description of “3-77-23 CARLISLE OTP LOTS 1 & 2 BLK P”. Lent explained that the City obtained the property through court order and removed the house and garage on the lot. Iowa Concrete Leveling has agreed to purchase the lot for $25,000 if the variances would be granted so they can build on the property. Concern was expressed over sight clearances at the corner of Market and Garfield since drivers appear to go fast around the corner. Lent proposed that a stop sign could be placed at the corner to slow down traffic. No public comments were made. At 6: 33 PM, Chairman Crowder closed the public hearing.

Motion by Jones, seconded by Zirkelbach to approve the variances requested is 8 feet for the front yard (a forty-five-foot setback is required), 30 feet for the rear yard, and a 20 foot setback on the north side yard with a stop sign to be placed at the corner should sight clearance hampered by any future building. Motion carried unanimously

Discussion took place on the next meeting to determine action on a variance request for a smaller setback on a detached garage at 825 N 5th Street. Consensus was to have the meeting on Thursday, December 28, 2017 at 6:30 PM.

Motion by Sayers, second by Thoman to adjourn at 6:38 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

CARLISLE CITY HALL

Chairperson Crowder called the meeting to order at 6:30 PM in the Carlisle City Hall. The following members were present and absent:

PRESENT: Paul Thoman, Jerry Jones, Tim Crowder, Jen Yates, Daphne Sayers and Mark Zirkelbach

ABSENT: None

Motion by Zirkelbach, seconded by Yates to approve the meeting minutes for Wednesday, 19 July 2017. Motion carried unanimously.

At 6:30 PM, Chairman Crowder opened the Public Hearing on Application Variance Requests from Charles Peterson on the Required Frontage Required for a Lot in R-2 Residential District with a legal description of “Parcel Q, Outlot 50, Carlisle Outlots”. City Administrator Lent explained that the application for the variance was due to the width of the lot being 56.44 feet wide and the required lot width in an R-2 Residential District was 60 feet.

Lent referenced a letter submitted by Neil Ruddy, resident at 135 S 5th Street stating that the city zoning ordinance stated that the width of the lot was determined at the front yard setback. Thus, for only 30 feet back from the front property line, the lot needed to be 60 feet. The situation could be remedied if Mr. Peterson was to get a 5 foot by 30 foot piece of property from his neighbor to the north (Ruddy) or neighbors to the south (Farrell). The situation does not actually dictate that a hardship exists since the situation can be remedied in this manner.

Charles Peterson, owner of the lot, stated the lot is about 1 acre and the lot is large enough for a suitable house.

Steve Miller from Coldwell-Banker noted that several variances had been granted for smaller lots. No negative impact from the variance request, but there would be a positive impact. No future variances would be needed for side yard setbacks. Jeff Farrell, 215 S 5th Street was concerned about location of a fence on his property which this variance would not affect.

Discussion by the board centered on the fact that the lot was approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council in 2008 as a valid lot in a R-2 Residential District. Determination of the hardship is that it is not sellable or buildable with the smaller frontage.

Motion by Yates, seconded by Sayers to approve closing the public hearing at 6:42 PM.

Motion by Thoman seconded by Sayers to grant the variance and allow the lot to be buildable with a lot frontage width of 56.44 feet. Motion carried unanimously on a roll call vote. Motion carried unanimously.

Motion by Sayers, second by Jones to adjourn at 6:46 PM.

Respectfully submitted,
