Troy Zoning Board of Appeals - January 2018 Meeting Recap

City staff has posted the video recording of the 1/16/18 Troy Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) meeting to YouTube. At the bottom of this post is the video.

There were two items on the agenda. Action taken on each item is listed below.
  • 1311 Maplelawn. "A variance to allow a proposed daycare to have the outdoor play area within the required front yard setback where the Zoning Ordinance requires the play area to be outside the front yard setback."

    At the request of the petitioner, the ZBA voted to postpone action on this item to our next meeting.

  • Vacant parcel adjacent to 660 E Long Lake. "In order to split a parcel of land into two parcels, a variance to allow one of the parcels to have less than the required 85 feet of frontage."

    The ZBA voted to deny the variance. I voted yes on the motion to deny the variance.
