Public Hearing

Chairman Lawrence opened the public hearing for an application by Mary Fisher for an area variance to construct a carport closer to the north property line than allowed at 5579 Edonna Drive.

He stated that he constructed the carport with all concrete piers, which are used to anchor the posts.

Steve Fisher also presented the board members with letters from each of the neighboring property owners, which stated they had no objections to the carport or the area variance being issued.

With no further questions or comments from the public the public hearing was closed.
