Hearings for home setback and Centier Bank sign on Chesterton BZA agenda

The Chesterton 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.

Attorney Greg 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.
