Helen Love, 10908 Patten Tract Road, was present to question the Trustees why they weren’t notified about a lot split that occurred between Scott & Roberta Love and James Love.

Mr. David presented an opinion he had received from Harry Walsh, attorney for Erie Regional Planning, concerning the necessity to notify property owners of a pending lot split. In the letter, Mr. Walsh states, “ that it is the job of the Zoning Department to see that the legal requirements are met in allowing the lot split process to move forward,” as stated in the Ohio Revised Code. It is not the duties of the Zoning Department or Regional Planning to see that all property owners are aware of any lot split in process.

After some discussion the Trustees did say that they could understand Mrs. Love’s frustration, but until something was done to change the process according to the Ohio Revised Code, their hands were tied.
