Seymour BZA to consider 7 variances at Tuesday’s meeting

The Seymour Board of Zoning Appeals will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers at city hall, 301-309 N. Chestnut St., Seymour.

The agenda includes Gretchen Rose requesting a land use variance at 534 E. 13th St. to use an existing garage as a commissary kitchen. It was given a favorable recommendation from the Seymour Plan Commission on Sept. 8.

Also, Randy McCoy is requesting a variance at 1130 Ernest Drive to vary from the required 20-foot rear setback to be at 5 feet for the construction of a new pole barn, and Kenny and Adam Perry are requesting a variance at 1021 W. Oak St. to build a 40-by-60-foot garage on the property. They cannot meet the front setback due to the property being on a corner lot.

The agenda also includes Ernesto and Ana Ignacio requesting a variance at 828 Pershing St. to be allowed to have two residences on one lot. They are wanting to turn an existing garage that is on the property into a living residence. It will not be rented. They plan on living there.

Cody Skinner is requesting a variance at 901 Holly Drive to put a 6-foot fence around his property. He is on a corner lot and is restricted as to where he can put a fence.

Sebastian Mateo Miguel plans to request a variance at 101 E. Laurel St. to have two residences on one lot. There currently are two attached buildings on the lot, and he plans to split it into two separate living spaces.

Finally, Westwind Sign is requesting a variance at 1240 Fourth St. to place a freestanding sign for a business within the building’s setback. The business is on a corner lot, which hinders the placement.

The meeting is open to the public and press. Enter the door along Third Street.
