1. Public Hearing on “Preliminary Subdivision Plat of a Tract of Land Known as the Currie Tract into Lots 1 – 6 located in Section 56, T8S, R12E, SLD, WBR Parish, Louisiana” for Joel P. Tingle.
Concerns for the possibility of increased traffic on Pecan Street was discussed. Mr. Tingle was present to answer questions. He stated that he will be building the homes on the lots and all driveways will connect to Allene Street. His explanation for the variance request on lots 1 and 2 is to preserve the beauty of the Oak Trees. There was no further discussion and no objection to this request. Mr. Fontenot closed the public hearing.
Mrs. Stelly made a motion to recommend approval of “Preliminary Subdivision Plat of a Tract of Land known as the Currie Tract into Lots 1 – 6, Located in Section 56, T8S, R12E, SLD, WBR Parish for Joel P. Tingle” with a five (5) foot variance on the front footage of Lots 1 and 2 and a stipulation of “No Driveways on Pecan Street”. Mr. Thibodaux seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
1. Variance Request – 467 Marionneaux Street – Lot # 40A, Southside Acres Subdivision. Daniel R. Scott requesting a side setback variance of nine (9) feet on the East side of his property.
Mrs. Scott was present and stated they are asking for a variance to move an existing building due to problems maneuvering their camper trailer into it without tearing up their yard. Mrs. Stelly asked if the building had been moved before and wanted to know its present location. Mrs. Scott stated that they constructed the building several years ago to house their motor home and were denied setback variances at that time. A question came up regarding the distance of the closest building on the neighbor’s property. Mrs. Scott could not answer the question. After further discussion Mr. Fontenot and Mrs. Stelly stated that they did not feel comfortable with just a one (1) foot setback. Mr. Fontenot called for motion.
Mr. Soniat made a motion to recommend approval of this request. Mr. Perkins seconded the motion and it passed with 3 ayes and 2 nays.
