- Ashville Free Library requesting an Area Variances to construct an addition closer to setbacks than allowed in Zoning in the R-1 District at property located at 2200 N. Maple Ave., specifically Sec. 384.11-1-94.2; 384.11-1-94.3; 384.11-1-95.
Mr. Radka and Mr. Butler appeared to represent the Ashville Free Library. Mr. Butler said they ran out of space so they would like to add on. He said one side will be heated which would be the work room and the other side will not have heat which is the storage room. It will be added on in the back and is 6.2’ from the rear property line and 13’ from the side property line. Mr. Radka said currently there is a storage shed that will be remove that is about 8×12. Mr. Leveque said that we will be adding on to an existing variance that is already closer to the setbacks than zoning allows. Mrs. Fuller had some concerns about the addition butting up to her land. Mrs. Fuller said she donated land to the library but didn’t know they had plans of adding on. Mr. Leveque said that as of now the existing shed comes out 14 ft from the library and the add on will not be any closer than the existing shed. Mrs. Fuller said she doesn’t have a problem with it if it isn’t any closer. Mr. Radka said the siding will be the same as the rest of the library, it will be attached to the library with a single lean-to roof with gutters and there will be no pluming in the addition. Mr. Lawson said they were under the 25% coverage amount. The board reviewed Zoning Code Sec. 904 Use and Area Variances; C.2. questions a.) no b.) no c.) yes d.) no e.) yes
