Board of Zoning Appeals will be meeting Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the
Chesterton Town Hall, 726 Broadway.
The meeting will
consist of two public hearings.
First, the Joyce A.
Fleming Revocable Living Trust requests a variance to reduce a front
building setback line from 25 feet to three feet at 112 Wilson Street.
The BZA granted a
variance in September to reduce the setback from 25 feet to nine feet. Cliff
Fleming said after the variance was granted, an engineer suggested that the
setback be changed so that the house proposed to be built can move up eight
feet to avoid erosion problems.
Fleming said he
hopes to build the house closer to the roadway so the trees and scenic views
can be kept as the property abuts Coffee Creek Park.
Centier Bank, which
before had proposed to add a freestanding sign, now wishes to have a 6.5’
monument sign at the northwest corner of the property near CR 100E while
keeping the current monument sign.
Babcock said the sign is desired because CR 100E is now the main
thoroughfare at the intersection instead of Calumet Rd.
There are no other
business items listed on the agenda.
