Troy Zoning Board of Appeals - May 2016 Meeting Recap

City staff has posted the video recording of the 5/17/16 Troy Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) meeting to YouTube. At the bottom of this post is the video. (The meeting actually starts shortly after the 1 minute and 30 second mark of the video.)

Click here to download the entire Agenda Packet from the May 17th meeting.

There were three items on the agenda:
  • A variance for 1321 Boyd (to split a parcel of land into 2 parcels). At the request of the petitioner, this item was postponed to our June meeting.

  • A variance for 6511 Malvern (to construct a new home). The ZBA voted on a resolution to deny the variance. I voted "no" and the resolution to deny the variance failed. The ZBA then voted to postpone action on this item to our June meeting.

  • A variance for 4354 Cherrywood (to construct an addition to a home). The ZBA approved the variance. I voted "yes" to approve the variance.
We also conducted our annual ZBA officer elections. Congratulations to Chair Glenn Clark and Vice Chair David Eisenbacher who were both re-elected.

2016 Troy Foundation For Educational Excellence Grant Reception

As a Trustee for the Troy Foundation For Educational Excellence (TFEE), I look forward to attending our annual reception which recognizes the recipients of our grants. Below I've posted a short video featuring a few of the photos I took at last week's reception.

At the reception, we also recognize a school grant applicant as TFEE Innovator of the Year. Below I've embedded a Troy School District video that recognizes the 2016 honoree, the Schroeder/Boulan Heart Dissection. Click here to read more about this project on the School Life Troy website.
