Land Use Case Reviews • February 6, 2017 at 6pm
Land Use Committee Meeting
Monday, February 6, 2017 at 6 pm
Northwood Christian Church, 4550 Central Avenue
The Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association Land Use Committee will meet to discuss land use issues in the neighborhood. All interested neighbors are encouraged to attend.
Cases to be discussed:
Consultations (no vote taken by committee):
- Kid’s Dance Outreach (Michael Johnson, assisted by David Kingen) is considering building a facility along College Avenue. They would like feedback from the committee as they consider their options. More details will be presented at the meeting.
- Jennifer and Alan Pyrz, who presented their plans to construct an addition to their home and a detached garage at 4321 North Pennsylvania Street at the January LUC meeting, will be presenting City Planning Staff’s comments/recommendations. As presented in January, the addition will extend the existing north edge of their home, and they will need a variance to the required setback from the north property line to construct the addition, and one for the south property line for the garage. The Pyrz’s learned that the Meridian Street Preservation Commission must review their petition before the City will schedule a hearing for their petition.
Requests for rezoning and/or variance of development standards:
