#815 Robert Teumer; The property is located on 2.571 acres, Northeast of Buffalo, the last house at the East end of Red Maple Court on the North side of the road.

Violation: None

Request: He is requesting to rezone from A-1 to R-2.

Vice President Rosenbarer asked, is there anyone here representing that?

Robert Teumer stated, I’m Robert Teumer. I want to get it from A-1 to being rezoned.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, do any of the Commissioners have any questions?

Director Weaver stated, I do have a note in the file that we had a neighbor contact us that has some concerns regarding drainage problems when you put the house in. What has happened here, he has put a new home on the property, he had an existing mobile home on the property. He put a new home in, the condition of the permit was that the old mobile home would be removed and I believe he is wanting to rezone to keep that mobile home now and divide this property so each is on its own lot.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, is there anyone in the audience with any comments?

Dave Downey stated, I’m Dave Downey and this is Herbert Hunt, and we own property there. I farm his farm there and basically blocked the drain off to the farm there. The river floods back there and when the water goes down that is the only access for the water to go back. He still put a bayou in there or a levy in there. It has been completed filled up.

Several are talking at once.

Attorney Altman stated, please let them talk.

Dave Downey stated, there is a ravine there and that is how the water would go back out after the river would go back down and he just closed it all in.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, is that where the house was built, where it is filled in?

Dave Downey stated, the house is built into the hill. There is no exit for the water.

Vice President asked, do you want to respond to this?

Robert Teumer stated, I’m going to put a drain in there, but the drain was closed off long before I got in there. They blocked it off where it ran into the river. Some people brought some property on the river and they blocked that drain off. The water never drained out of there, but I intend putting a drain in there. I was going to do it last fall, but I had a stroke and I didn’t get it done. I want to do it this spring. I don’t know, he owns the property behind me and a woman by the name of Kim owns the one where the water is plugged. I want to put the drain in there because I don’t want the water.

Director Weaver stated, this is something, if he goes through subdivision he would have to address drainage prior to getting approval for subdivision.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, if R-2 is granted would he still have to go through a subdivision to leave the trailer?

Director Weaver stated, yes, he will. I would like to note that I have given the board members a copy of a flood map and this property is located in a flood area. I marked the map approximately where his property is located.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, but he already has his permit for the house.

Director Weaver stated, yes. He is back in the hill.

Robert Teumer stated, the road is higher than the property.

Vice President asked, he wants to do this, so he can keep the trailer?

Director Weaver stated, yes

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, other wise he has to move the trailer.

Director Weaver stated, the permit that was issued for the home was conditioned that the mobile home be removed. The original permit I believe was issued in 2000 and the mobile home is still located on the property.

Robert Teumer stated, it was 801 up there and they told me up there to keep the mobile home up there, I would have to get it subdivided and get it from agriculture to residential.

Dave Downey stated, I don’t think that Herb has a problem with the mobile home or the home as long as we get the drainage in before it gets rezoned.

Attorney Altman stated, they could make the objection and get it before hand. You are right in addressing that.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, I’m just thinking on how to get the drainage done.

Jay Clawson stated, we could make it contingent on them putting the drainage back in, so the property would be drained before…

Attorney Altman stated, I guess I’m not clear what has changed.

Dave Downey stated, he has built a ravine. His house is kind of built into a hill, there is a ravine to, and when the river would flood all of the water would go out of it.

Attorney Altman asked, is the house where the ravine is?

Dave Downey stated, no, his house is built into a hill, but getting to his garage, his driveway basically with no tube, it is just solid dirt.

The board is discussing what they are going to have him do for the drainage.

Robert Teumer stated, they told me to take a rubber tube 8” and put it through there. That is what I intended to do, but I had stroke in October.

Attorney Altman asked, who told you?

Robert Teumer stated, down at the city hall, somewhere in the planning commission.

Don Ward stated, you don’t want to put an 8” in there. They plug so easily, you don’t want to put anything in less than 15 to 18”.

Robert Teumer stated, well I could do that, they told me I had to do it. I don’t want the water on my property either that’s why I’m putting the drainage in. Every time it rains everything floods and the water stays in there. The water will be way down the river and that holds water all of the time.

Jay Clawson asked, how long of a drain does this have to be?

Robert Teumer stated, about 150’ I have to clear across my property. I have a map that I can show you.

Robert Teumer is currently showing that the map where he has to put the drainage.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, Denny does that make sense?

Dennis Sterrett stated, yes.

Several people are talking at once.

Vice President Rosenbarger had to bring meeting back to order.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, I guess my concern is the drainage. I would like to see some kind of a commitment attached to it to get the drainage taken care of. What does everyone else think?

Jay Clawson stated, table it until next meeting, have a commitment drafted, and present it to us before we rezone.

Attorney Altman stated, I think it would be appropriate and fair recommendation.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, that is your decision if you want to table it until the next meeting and come up with a commitment to show what kind of drainage you are going to put in or we can vote on it as with no commitment.

Director Weaver stated, the commitment would have to be draw up by an attorney at your expense.

Robert Teumer stated, a commitment means that I make sure I put the tile in. I will go along with that.

Attorney Altman stated, so you move to table it until the next meeting.

Robert Teumer asked, when is the next meeting?

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, May 12.

Robert Teumer asked, so I have to go to a lawyer to draw this up.

Attorney Altman stated, yes, it is a pretty simple document. You should be able to get that done fairly easy and make sure gets it to me so I can get it approved before the board meets.

Robert Teumer stated, so I need to put a 14” drain in there.

Don Ward stated, anything smaller would plug up on you. You want at least a 15”.

Robert Teumer stated, I had intended to use plastic.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, #815 has been tabled until May 15.

#816 Roger D. & Juanita R. Corson; The property is located on Part NW NE and NE NW, 150’ x 150’, South of Monticello at 2508 Airport Road.

Violation: None

Request: They are requesting to rezone from A-1 to B-2 to put a refrigeration business on the property or to satisfy a commitment with the original rezoning done in 1989 by the previous owner.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, is there anyone here representing this?

Roger Corson stated, I’m Roger Corson.

Attorney Altman stated, I represent Mr. Corson legally and so I going to excuse myself at this time.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, please state your name again.

Roger Corson stated, I’m Roger Corson.

Director Weaver stated, I would like to explain this request on this property. It was originally rezoned to B-2 in 1989 as part of that rezoning request there was a commitment done with the County Commissioners that the property be rezoned back to A-1 within two years of that date. That rezoning was never done. Mr. Corson came into the office and was inquiring about the property, making sure it was properly rezoned for his business on the property, and we discovered this commitment. Therefore, his request is so that if you don’t allow it to be rezoned back to B-2 for it to go ahead and revert back to the A-1 that it should have been done many years ago.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, what does it need to be to satisfy the compliance?

Director Weaver stated, for it to go back to the A-1 zoning.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, do any of the commissioners have any questions?

Jay Clawson stated, Roger’s business is strictly service and not retail. Roger is pretty much a one man service and I don’t think he is planning making it….

Roger Corson stated, I just wanted to get is rezoned so I can move the business down there and comply with the zoning.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, does anyone in the audience have any questions?

Director Weaver stated, I have not received anything on this.

Without further discussion the board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 6 affirmative and 0 negative. This will be presented to the County Commissioners for their action.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, is there anyone here representing Ken Metcalf?

Ken Metcalf stated, I’m Ken Metcalf. The property use to be apart of Dr. Lindborg’s animal hospital there and we bought part of it.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, do any of the Commissioners have any questions?

Is there anyone in the audience with any questions?

Director Weaver asked, what are you going to do with the existing barn?

Ken Metcalf stated, well we are converting it right now temporally.

Attorney Altman asked, you do not have a building permit for your work?

Ken Metcalf stated, we didn’t think we needed one in the beginning. I have since talked to the building inspector and we have reach an agreement and an understanding were we are right now and we are waiting for the rezoning to apply for the building permit.

Director Weaver stated, you do understand if you convert this into a dwelling when you get ready to build your new dwelling you will either have to convert this back to a barn or subdivide the property.

Ken Metcalf stated, or sell off 3 acres, yes I understand.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, do any of the Commissioners have any questions?

Without further discussion the board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 6 affirmative and 0 negative. This will be presented to the County Commissioners for their action.

#819 Robert D. Pavy, Owner; L. Dowal Dellinger, Applicant: The property is located on 6.06 acres, North of County Road 225 North directly behind 3148 N. 400 E.

Violation: None

Request: They are requesting to rezone from R-4 to B-2 to bring the land in compliance with campground use.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, yes.

 

Dow Dellinger stated, I’m Dow Dellinger and I’m hear on behalf of the owner Dave Pavy, who is with us this evening. We have meet with the local property owners and the neighbors. We had a meeting that Diann attended and it was just of the local property owners that they we all for a campground, but not in support of building mobile home development back there. So in good faith effort we have decided what we would do is change the our forum there is a 6 acre tract that sets out front that was zoned for mobiles now. We are requesting to change that to a B-2 we have a special use application that is coming up Thursday to make the entire area campgrounds. That is what we are asking to do. There are a couple of different options we could have run with special use. We thought we would go with the B-2 in case we ever wanted to add a shop for candy bars and camping equipment and that sort of thing. At this time there are no plans for that. Our plan is to use the entire area for a campground.

 

Director Weaver stated, we have received some calls from the surrounding neighbors inquiring what was being requested at this time. I’m not aware of any of them being opposed to this request. They have mainly just been inquiring.

 

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, is there anyone in the audience with any questions?

 

Ken Kelly stated, I’m Ken Kelly. I’m adjacent to the property on Potowatomie Drive. There are still some concerns that at the meeting a couple of months ago. The biggest problem with that is the people and the neighbors around the population build up and the traffic control and still there is a drainage problem with that. There is no sufficient draining that would hold even the parking lot for business for a store or all of that. I know there are a few people here who still stand by me and say that they don’t really want a whole lot of population builds up in the area. It is residential and there are a lot of nice homes there and I think it would be departmental to let a campground move in there and kind of cause more problems, instead of having nice homes and safe kids. God knows how many campers in an 80 acres lot. It is also adjacent to Arrowhead campground arrowhead road, which they will be cutting through and I think it would be in our best interest if we deny them.

 

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, is there anyone else with a comment?

 

Mike Neal stated, I’m Mike Neal and I have a concern on the 6 acres zoned B-2. What kind of commitments do we have from him to stay with a single business there. 6 acres is quit a bit for a business out there. Can we restrict him or is there anything we can get as far as a commitment that there won’t be 6 acres of business there.

 

Dow Dellinger stated, I think our intentions obviously we have asked for special use of a campground for that 6 acres. The meeting will occur Thursday.

 

Director Weaver stated, right, I think if the special exception is granted for the campground use, what ever they do in there is going to have to be compatible with a campground use. No matter what kind of business it is. It will have that special exception with it.

 

Mike Neal asked, what kind of business are you talking about.

 

Dow Dellinger stated, we are not talking about anything right now. We just want to be able to use that for campsites and we thought it was a good faith show to show the community that we did not want to keep it mobiles. Right now it’s zoned so we could put mobiles in there now. That was the objection, so we want to show you the intention was to make it a campground.

 

Ken Kelly stated, well just to turn around and turn it into B-2, we aren’t going to let you put those trailers in there and now you want to put in a business and now you want to expand that campground to 80 acres.

 

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, we are only talking about 6 acres.

 

Ken Kelly stated, right, but I mean in lieu of that. What kinds of business like a grocery store or what?

 

Dow Dellinger stated, we are not talking about having any business there right now. Our intention is to use it for campground space. I think their intentions are if they ever want to come back and put a store up.

 

Gary Barbour asked, what if this passes and gets zoned B-2 and Thursday night it doesn’t pass as a special exception then what do we do? It is still zoned business; it could be used for anything then.

 

Director Weaver stated, yes

 

Gary Barbour asked, shouldn’t the special exception come before the rezone?

 

Director Weaver stated, it could not come before because it is not properly zoned for a campground.

 

Gary Barbour asked, so should this vote be contingent upon the special exception being passed.

 

Director Weaver stated, yes I think you could do that.

 

Dow Dellinger stated, and we don’t object to that we have talked about it as well. We kind of a good faith leap than we wanted to take. That was the intention.

 

Gary Barbour stated, that elevates their concerns about you doing anything business wise and it will be campground related.

 

Tom Diener stated, my question is about the drainage.

 

Dow Dellinger stated, we have worked with the county club at this point and time to try to determine if we can run a line or either tap into their line through the county club. I think the issue is who would pay for part of the line in the county club. They’re some problems with drainage with all of the houses along with both arrow road and the county road there. Want to see what the country club wants to do because they have several days out of the year that they miss play because it is to wet on back nine. They have some interest as well. We are trying to figure out that’s the least expensive way to get drainage in or running a line North to the ditch would be down to the Jennings Addition. The Jennings ditch would be less expenses to run a main line or across the golf course.

 

Tom Diener stated, the golf course could put a tile in because they have access to the…..

 

Dow Dellinger stated, right, we would be asking to tie into the golf course tile.

 

Tom Diener stated, I do want to compliment the people on cleaning up the place around there. It look real good. You have really improved it a lot.

 

Joe Thomas stated, I’m Joe Thomas. They have done a heck of a job cleaning it up. We have never had a problem with the campground. Years ago when a man named Greene owned that he did have a store opened for the campground. We did not have any problems with that at all. If they keep it as a campground, but I was one of the first to raise cane over the mobile home, if it is a campground we could live with that. The way they are going at it, it looks like they are going to make a good thing out of it. One more thing Greene opened the drains all the way to Jennings at one time, we never had anything, and then it collapsed for some reason. I think that maybe the easy way to go. It is worth looking into, but that tile was opened at one time and it kept it pretty good and clean. That was a long time ago.

 

Jim Reynolds stated, my name is Jim Reynolds. I live just North of the campground and my concern is, is there anyway just by visual the size of the campground right now approximately 20 or 25 acres. Would that be fair to estimate?

 

Darrell Powers stated, my name is Darrell Powers. There are 36 acres at the back. We are guessing the campground is 35 or 40 acres.

 

Jim Reynolds stated, then there is probably 20 to 30 that runs East to West that is just open field. That is between Best and your place.

 

Darrell Powers stated, that is the 6 acres.

 

Jim Reynolds stated, that is in the front, but that is open clear back to the fence line. Just by looking at it I went outside last night and looked at it when the sun went down and looking at the lights. I figured if it was to double in size that would a low estimation. I was thinking closer to triple, part of the reason why I bought my home in this location is because you have Indiana Beach campground and then Yogi got bigger and it is kind of creeping out. Now it’s in my back yard. Not that it’s some progress it happens, but I don’t know if it is to the best interest to the neighborhood. I know there is wild life that is out there as time goes on it is definitely going to dwindle it down. How much it does or effects it I couldn’t say. It concerns me and it concerns my wife. I just thought I would state my peace.

 

Don Wiley stated, I’m Don Wiley, I live in the corner of the campground there, and my only concern is the traffic. There is going to be a lot more people coming. I think the campground is going to be okay. I’m not going to rave about it because I live right next door. I have been there when they have had 4th of July parties over there and they has shot firecrackers. I get up at 5:00 in the morning to go over and work at the beach and I can live with it. For 3 or 4 months out of the year, if it brings business to Monticello, people to Monticello, I can bight the bullet and live with it. The traffic and the drainage are the only 2 concerns I have now. If they do what they say I’m for it.

 

Dave Glotzbach stated, my name is Dave Glotzbach, I live on 225. Just a question regarding the camping. I’m assuming this will be seasonal and not linger into year around camping.

 

Dow Dellinger stated, yes, we have water lines out there that will not let them go year around. The water lines go out through there. The have to blow them out before it freezes.

 

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, Commissioners.

 

Attorney Altman stated, yes, this will be contingent upon the special exception being approved.

 

Without further discussion the board voted.

The results of the vote were as follows: 6 affirmative and 0 negative. This is with the contingent that the special exception is approved by the BZA this Thursday evening. This will be forwarded to the County Commissioners next Monday morning for the final decision on this.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, so everything has been matched?

Attorney Altman stated, I call the board’s attention to the 30’ way into lot #2. It is a matter that we have looked at many times, and….

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, what is our standard in the ordinance required?

Director Weaver stated, the right away is 50’.

Attorney Altman stated, and this is only 30’.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, their showing this as a part of lot 2?

Attorney Altman stated, yes.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, do you understand what we are talking about there?

Renee Cleefman stated, I understand. It’s not changing ownership, its just going to be a place for my children to live, so they are not in my basement.

Attorney Altman stated, we understand.

Vice President Rosenbarger, but you may sell it someday.

Attorney Altman stated, if you have it 50’ it complies with the ordinance. The 30’ doesn’t comply with the ordinance.

Renee Cleefman stated, okay, I guess I don’t know what we need to accomplish.

Attorney Altman stated, let me should you specifically what we are talking about.

This is 30’ wide.

The board members are looking at the survey and discussing the width of the road.

Attorney Altman stated, what we are saying is the surveyor ought to have it 50’ and then it complies with the ordinance.

Don Ward asked, do you own the lot South of you.

Renee Cleefman stated, yes, wait a minute our aunt owns it. My husband farms it.

Part of that ground is farmed at the moment. Which we own, it is not used as living.

Attorney Altman asked, do you own this?

Renee Cleefman stated, yes, we own all of that.

Dennis Sterrett asked, in other words this line that is on the South line of lot 2 is not your property line.

Attorney Altman stated, no.

Dennis Sterrett stated, you own down on pass.

Renee Cleefman stated, wherever that orange spot is in the center of the road. We own all the way back, so part of that farm ground.

Dennis Sterrett stated, yes, I know that this must be your South line.

They are still discussing the map and where the property lines is located.

Dennis Sterrett stated, I think we have done it this way before.

Attorney Altman stated, we have done this that way before, but we have always had 50’.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, because you know that is going to be the access to that lot.

Jay Clawson stated, we have turned several down for only like 30’.

Attorney Altman stated, if you go on the North side you’ve got 50’. Just modify this and bring it back in and we will approve it.

Director Weaver stated, as long as there is no buildings there.

They have farm buildings on there.

They are discussing where the farm buildings are located. They are showing Attorney Altman on the map where the farm buildings are located.

Attorney Altman asked, do you understand what we are talking about?

Renee Cleefman stated, access ability.

Attorney Altman stated, okay why don’t we table this.

Jay Clawson stated, they don’t have their drainage yet, so they could go for first and secondary approval on this.

Director Weaver asked, could you shift lot 1 to the South property line and then put your 50’ to the North side of lot 1?

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, that way you are only adding 20’ to the North side of your line

Renee Cleefman stated, I couldn’t possibly go home and explain any of this to George.

Attorney Altman stated, if he has any questions, call me.

Director Weaver stated, come in and see me and I will explain it.

Renee Cleefman asked, should I bring George in to you then Diann.

Director Weaver stated, or if you want to come.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, she can show you what we are looking at on the drawing.

I don’t think…..

Renee Cleefman stated, I’m not sure about the buildings on there.

Director Weaver stated, that is what I’m concerned about. Jim doesn’t show where your buildings are on there.

Attorney Altman stated, so if you locate them then we will know.

Renee Cleefman stated, does Jim need to locate them and then bring you a piece of paper with the buildings on it.

Director Weaver stated, let me call him tomorrow and he may have an idea.

Renee Cleefman stated, okay we are going to come in and see you and table this until May 12.

Director Weaver stated, I wouldn’t be in the office first thing.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, what do we have now?

Attorney Altman stated, I believe we have this amendment to the ordinance.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, where is it?

Director Weaver stated, I gave it to you last month, it was tabled too.

Vice President Rosenbarger stated, this is where we are filling in the blank where it looks like we don’t have any setbacks.

Attorney Altman stated, quite frankly guys we had a lawyer that did that exactly on me.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, are there any questions on the amendments. This is on the building heights and setbacks.

There is a discussion among the board members.

Without further discussion the board voted.

The results of the vote where as follows: 6 affirmative and 0 negative. The amendment is adopted.

Director Weaver stated, I need any impute that any of you can give me on our schedule of uses. We have to amend that, so if there is something that is not on that schedule that you think needs to be on that schedule, I need to hear from you so we can add it.

Attorney Altman stated, as an example, people are saying that you can not put residential home in an A-1 because it is not x. That is just one of the things we are getting. I guess I’m just saying, it could make it complicated, and someone will try to do it. That doesn’t keep us from allowing a farmer to put a home on his farm area. That is no problem, I don’t have that is a part of the farm use. We do have to address that in the agriculture area.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, where are we at on the fine?

Attorney Altman stated, I will check with my office, but I’m almost sure that is what it is.

There is a discussion among the board members.

Vice President Rosenbarger asked, is there any other business? Then the meeting is adjourned.

****

The meeting adjourned.
