Planners back waiver request
September 8, 2010
The Warren County Planning and Zoning Commission voted unanimously Tuesday evening to forward waivers for property in Limestone Township at their meeting Tuesday evening.
Warren County Planning and Zoning Director Dan Glotz said the request came from Albert and Pauline Medice for a road frontage waiver and right-of-way width waiver. Their property runs along Route 62, he said.
“There are a lot of cabins in the area,” Glotz said. “It’s south of the main drag into Tidioute.”
The proposal would subtract 10 feet from one of their lots, Glotz said, and add it to the other. He said the lots would still not have the required 50 feet road frontage.
Commission member Paul Pascuzzi said the neighborhood does not offer a lot of room. The waiver would allow the owners to place a driveway on their own property, Glotz said.
Currently, Glotz said a shared driveway serves two camps. Another in front of the properties makes a horseshoe shape, he said.
The planning commission recommendation will be forwarded to the county commissioners for final approval.
In other business, Glotz said the planning office has received anonymous letters requesting action on blighted properties.
However, Glotz said municipal officials must receive a formal notification first. After that, he said they must follow a series of steps before his office gets involved.
“They send their letters unsigned,” Glotz said. “Then we can’t contact them.”
The commission’s next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5 in basement break room 5 at the Warren County Courthouse.
