PLANNING

1) PUBLIC HEARING – Resubdivision with variance – 2635 Allene Street: “Final Plat of Map Showing Subdivision of the Remaining Western Portion of Lot 33, Lots 34 & 35 and a Revoked 20’ Ditch Right-of-Way, Allene Subdivision into Lots 33-A and 34-A” for Court Street Development, LLC”.

Upon the request of the Chairman, the secretary read a statement on the reason this item came back before the Planning Commission: “Due to a situation that came up with the existing mobile home on Lot 33A, a non-conforming use was created and the plat could not be approved administratively as discussed at the December meeting.”

Mrs. Stelly opened the public hearing. Mr. Woody Triche was recognized. Representing Court Street Development he stated that the existing mobile home on Lot 33A is seven and one-half feet from the western property line created by the re-subdivision of the three lots and Court Street Development is requesting a two and one-half foot side setback variance.
Discussion followed on the length of time the mobile home will remain on the property and Mr. Triche was asked to re-write the variance statement on the plat. He was asked to include in the statement that the variance is only for the existing mobile home and this variance will expire and revert back to the mandatory setback requirements of the Town of Brusly when the existing mobile home is removed from the property.

There were no objections to this request. The Chairman closed the public hearing.

Mrs. Purnell made a motion to recommend the Town Council approve the plat with a variance; contingent upon the addition of wording to the variance statement that the variance is only for the existing mobile home it will expire and revert back to the mandatory setback requirements of the Town of Brusly when the existing mobile home is removed from the property. Mrs. Perrault seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.

OTHER BUSINESS
