Zoning Report:/span>

MMr. David reported that he had issued no zoning permit since the last meeting.

There was discussion about the McKillips house on Mason Road. What was thought to be an effort to clean up the property was actually work being done by a neighbor to help elevate the eye sore. Because of the damage by the auto accident and to date there’s been no move to secure the house; Mr. David suggested that he contact Bob England at the Erie County Health Department to get them involved in the process of cleaning up the property. The Trustees agreed that they would have more power to move the process ahead.

Mr. David reminded the Trustees that James Shickley had applied for a zoning change from “commercial” to “residential” for a lot that he and his brother were dividing off of the family estate. Mr. David said the Zoning Board hearing would be scheduled for Thursday October 27.

Mr. David reported that Vassie Maharaj who owns the property at 4813 Delematre Road, Monroeville, Ohio has applied for a variance to do reasonable alterations to a non-conforming structure. Mr. David explained that they had removed the roof of the house and were in the process of remodeling the inside of the house along with planned additions before coming to him for zoning permits. After reviewing the property which is classified a non-conforming property because the lot doesn’t meet today’s standards and the house is also non-conforming because it sets to close to the road, not meeting today’s set back requirements, Mr. David said he notified them that they had to stop any further construct until a variance could be approved.
