#2182 Patrick W. & Dolores R. McTaggart; The property is located on Lot 15 in Gano’s Camp, The property is located West of Lowe’s Bridge at 3608 E. Bailey Road.

Violation: No permit found for a carport that was placed on the property in 1994.

Request: They are requesting a 4’ side setback variance and a 3’ rear setback

variance to replace an existing carport with a detached garage.

President Thompson asked, is there anyone here representing this request?

Patrick McTaggart stated, I’m Patrick McTaggart.

President Thompson asked, do you have anything extra to present tonight sir, other than what we have in front of us?


Patrick McTaggart stated, you should have an updated survey.

Attorney Altman stated, it is a survey dated received 3/19/03 at the bottom of the right hand corner.

President Thompson asked, does everyone understand that it is the survey with your pictures?

Patrick McTaggart stated, I’m asking for a variance to put on a 2-car garage.

President Thompson asked, Diann do you have anything?

Director Weaver stated, no we have not received anything from any of the neighbors. I do just want to point out when I was working on this information, I found that the existing carport and could not find a building permit for that. When I pulled the old survey from the old variance it was not noted on there. I did look today, and the assessor’s card showed that went up in 1994, and I can not find a permit for it.

Attorney Altman asked, is that 2 story Diann?

Director Weaver stated, no, if you look at the supplemental drawing with his survey, it shows on there an existing carport. The board would have received that in their packet.

President Thompson asked, was it his property at that time?

Director Weaver stated, yes it was.

Patrick McTaggart stated, I’m taking the carport out.

President Thompson asked, you are taking it out?

Patrick McTaggart stated, replacing it with a 2-car garage.

Carol Stradling asked, can you tell me what the difference is between the survey that was received 3/19/03 and the one that was in our packets Diann?

Director Weaver stated, do to the over hangs, it is my understanding that they are going to have to shift a little bit where the garage is going to be, its not going to effect what you see on the survey as to how far it is going from the property lines. It was going to affect how close it was going to be to the home. I told him that the board would probably want that new information on there.

Attorney Altman stated, so it is 8 ½’ verse 12’.

Director Weaver stated, yes, and that is the only difference.

President Thompson asked, any response from adjourning property owners for this at all?

Director Weaver stated, no.

President Thompson asked, is there anyone here opposing this variance? Are there any questions or comments from the board?

Carol Stradling stated, I just want to make a comment that it didn’t…. the difference between 8’ ½ and 12’ if you put the two surveys on top of each other. It didn’t change the location, it just changed the….

Director Weaver stated, and that maybe, it could be possible. They’re going to shift the angle of the garage so he is in line with the house and the way the originally laid it out it wasn’t going to be in line with the house. I don’t think it included the over hangs on the drawings. They want to line it up with the house. It is not actually going to be any closer to the property lines, but it was going to be closer to the home.

President Thompson asked, have you been a resident of the Monticello area for sometime?

Patrick McTaggart stated, since 1978.

President Thompson asked, is there any particular reason why you did not get a building permit for the carport?

Patrick McTaggart stated, no, what happen I was on vacation and my dad, who lives next door, decided he would surprise me and build me a carport. I came back, it was there, and I assumed that it was okay.

Carol Stradling stated, we had a situation a couple of months ago where a relative was trying to help another relative and did not get a building permit.

President Thompson asked, Dave, or Dave do you have any questions?

David Stimmel stated, I’m just curious Patrick what the 4’ difference between the roadway is in the drawing also. Does that include the overhang?

Patrick McTaggart stated, yes, I think it does.

David Stimmel stated, so the entrance to the garage would be from that road and then you would be backing out of or pulling on to.

Patrick McTaggart stated, yes.

President Thompson asked, what is the boards wish here? The way I see it is we have two things here that we need to address. Carol do you have a comment on what you want to address first.

Carol Stradling asked, how much does a building permit cost Diann?

Director Weaver stated, it depends on what you are doing. Currently for an accessory building that is on a non-permanent foundation it is .05 a sq. ft.

Carol Stradling stated, so if they would have gotten a building permit for the carport….

Director Weaver stated, at the time it was built, it would have cost around $15.00.

David Scott asked, when did you say it was built?

Director Weaver stated, 1994 according to the Assessor’s office.

President Thompson asked, do you agree with that sir?

Patrick McTaggart stated, I think it was alittle bit earlier than that. I think it was 1990 or 1991.

President Thompson asked, Jerry do you have any input on this?

Attorney Altman stated, just what the facts say.

President Thompson stated, well, do we have time to read this.

Director Weaver stated, I did send him a letter and he did receive a copy of that.

President Thompson stated, okay.

Attorney Altman stated, he is in violation, subject to a $500 fine.

President Thompson asked, do you want to address the carport first?

Carol Stradling asked, Jerry do you have a copy of that ordinance with you? Does it say building permit outside?

Attorney Altman stated, work has been done outside the perimeters of the building permit to the extent that it requires a variance to remain in place and you are subject to a $500 fine.

Carol Stradling asked, and it does require a variance because it was built to close to the property line?

Director Weaver stated, yes.

Carol Stradling stated, this was built before our ordinance was in place.

Attorney Altman stated, not before the ordinance, but before the policy.

David Scott stated, I feel personally that $500 is a bit excessive for what has happened here. I think I would make a motion that we fine him $50 for building without a permit.

Carol Stradling stated, I would second that.

President Thompson stated, it’s been moved and seconded that we fine Mr. McTaggart a fine of $50.00 towards building without a build permit in lue of the time passed and current adoption was in effect at that time. All in favor signify by saying aye all opposed. Motion was carried.

Now back to the variance of #2182 is there any other discussion pertaining to that.

Carol Stradling stated, I’m looking at different…. I’m looking at the other survey we had not the 3/19/03 with the 8’1/2 on it, but I’m looking at the other survey and then looking at the drawing you have on draft paper and I’m seeing the corner of the existing carport was 12’ from Bailey road and I’m not seeing that on the survey and I know this is kind of twisted on the property.

Patrick McTaggart stated, what I meant here that is where I’m going to start it.

Carol Stradling stated, so the garage is going to start 12’ off of Bailey Road.

Patrick McTaggart stated, no, oh yes, I’m sorry, yes it is.

David Scott asked, is that off the road or off the easement?

Patrick McTaggart stated, it is off the easement.

Carol Stradling asked, Bailey Road is 50’. Do you know does that put, see the survey has the garage 4’ off of Bailey Road, your drawing has it 12’ off, and I know that there is an angle there.

Patrick McTaggart stated, and this may not be exact.

Carol Stradling stated, so your intent is to go no closer than 4’ off of Bailey road from the corner.

David Scott asked, how much room do you have to record to put the garage in the actually roadway. Do you have room for a car between your garage and the roadway?

Patrick McTaggart stated, yes.

Dave Anderson stated, I’m Dave Anderson. I stopped out there and looked at Mr. McTaggart’s building project and what he has and the survey is for the distance between the house and the garage. We set this back to the eave trying to straighten it out. The 4’ is off of the right away it is probably 12’ off of the edge of the road.

David Scott stated, I just wanted to make sure that he wasn’t backing out in a blind.

Director Weaver asked, Dave do you think that there is room for a car to park between the garage of the road surface.

Dave Anderson stated, parallel. There is a sewer shut off or it’s a access value out there also. That sewer access value is on the right away. As far as pulling in there perpendicular no.

Director Weaver stated, so he is not pulling in like he is pulling into the garage, so if he backs his car out of the garage he is not going to have room to set it between the garage and road.

Dave Anderson stated, no, but as far as backing out with a blind spot he does have room before his vehicle gets to the road to look both ways.

Director Weaver stated, I think that was what we were intending as far as backing out.

Carol Stradling stated, your drawing has the garage going at the same as one of the corners of the garage you are going to put it back farther that the car port is setting now.

Dave Anderson stated, he has to because of the width of the garage. He had to move the garage towards the house further.

President Thompson asked, is there anymore discussion?

Without further discussion the board voted.

The board finds the following:

1. That the property is properly zoned L-1, Lake District


2. That the lot was an existing lot of record at the time of enactment of the ordinance, as defined in Section 2.114.

Violation: None.

Request: He is requesting a 7’ height variance to build a detached garage with a

loft.

President Thompson asked, is there anyone representing this?

Jim Norris stated, I’m Jim Norris.

President Thompson asked, you are Jim Norris?

Jim Norris stated, yes.

President Thompson asked, please come forward, if you would please. Do you have anything additional to add to this?

Jim Norris stated, I’m not sure if I’m on trial here tonight or what.

President Thompson stated, not really.

Jim Norris stated, no, I’m just trying to get a garage built on my property.

President Thompson asked, Diann anything?

Director Weaver stated, I have not received anything from the neighbors. My pictures don’t show this very well, but on the bottom right hand pictures, his house is behind that house on the left-hand side. There is a building already next door to him that is pretty tall. I was trying to show that in the pictures.

President Thompson asked, and you are?

Dale Deardurff stated, Dale, and I live right next door to Jim.

President Thompson asked, does anyone else care to address this?

Richard Myers stated, I live behind him and I don’t like the height of the barn. Also I want more information. I want to know how thick the walls are in there and how high the doors are.

President Thompson stated, you say you are behind, we have pictures here and we have a survey here.

Richard Myers stated, okay here is how the road runs, here is his house and 50’ of that road comes here and I own 10.54 acres here. On the 50’ road that goes here I own 50’ wide here and I own all together 10.541 acres set from here down the fence etcetera.

They are going over the survey at this time.

President Thompson asked, what are your two concerns?

Richard Myers stated, the height of the barn.

Director Weaver stated, it would be 22’.

Richard Myers asked, why does it have to be 22’?

Director Weaver stated, because that is what they asked for.

Richard Myers asked, how much will the loft cover?

Director Weaver stated, the information that they have submitted with the building permit, shows that it will be 11’ x 32’.

Richard Myers stated, 11’ x 32’, now what I’m saying my source tells me that he is making the garage to work on Diesel trucks out there, whether its true or not I don’t know, but that is what I have heard.

Attorney Altman stated, well I’ll tell you what, if it is a violation of the ordinance and that would be a violation for zoning. He can not do that.

Richard Myers stated, yes that’s right.

Attorney Altman stated, so if he does do that we will enforce the ordinance and stop that from happening no matter.

They are discussing Richards Myers land on the survey.

Richard Myers is showing everyone on the survey where the driveways are and where his driveway is located on it. He is also showing them where is house is located on the map.

David Scott asked, how far are you from his property?

President Thompson stated, Mr. Norris you had your hand up. Did you want to say something?

Jim Norris stated, yes sir, I don’t know if he knows it, but trucks are 13’6 and my doors are only 9’. I’m going to have an upstairs room for a pool table and just a little room for me to get away from things for awhile. I have no intentions of putting a trucking outfit. I already got one, I don’t need to move it onto my property.

Richard Myers stated, I’m 100’ off the back wall and 500’ down the line. The house is 30’, I have a pond right there, and it comes straight down.

Richard Myers is showing Dave Scott where his property is on the survey again.

Carol Stradling asked, is it blocking your line of site?

Richard Myers stated, sure.

President Thompson asked, Carol do you have a questions for either or?

Carol Stradling stated, I’m trying to following what the arrangements that he has set up there and it looks like it is pretty open there and I just wondered what you might be looking at that it would block your view. Sir do you know how tall your FBI building is?

Jim Norris stated, I’m not sure, but it is now blocking anyone’s view.

President Thompson asked, is there any more discussion? Dave or Dave?

Carol Stradling asked, so your objections are the view?

Richard Myers, yes

Carol Stradling asked, or does this have more to do with what you think he is going to put in.

Richard Myers, yes that to.

Carol Stradling stated, I’m trying to clarify what your objections are.

Richard Myers stated, my objections are I don’t want people’s trucks worked on out there and I want to be able to see the road from where I’m.

Dave Scott asked, Diann what is going to be the total height on that?

Director Weaver stated, 22’

President Thompson asked, are there any more questions from the board?

Carol Stradling stated, I’m also looking at the road being about 400’ from your house.

Richard Myers stated, it is more than that.

Dale Deardurff stated, where Jim’s property is, I live South of Jim. This road that we live on use to go all the way through and Mr. Myers cut it off after they moved my……

Richard Myers stated, Mr. ??? owns that property.

President Thompson stated, wait a minute he has the floor.

Dale Deardurff stated, he shut the road off when they moved my modular in. This road use to go on over to where his lane goes up to his house. This road is shut down at Jim’s place so where I bought my land off of Tim Hardeback you better allow a right away so if you want to see that lot North of me make a driveway and that is exactly what I did. So we left 50’ or 60’ so Jim could have a driveway into his house.

President Thompson stated, all right.

Director Weaver stated, Carol I would like to mention to you that all of these tracts of land out there are minimum of 3 acres.

Carol Stradling stated, okay.

President Thompson stated, one more time Dick and then we going to move on this.

Richard Myers stated, when I bought that as you can see which way are you looking okay. I bought 50’ all the way back there to my property and come down here and stop ….. as a matter of fact when I blocked this off he wasn’t even living there yet. I blocked that off because it was my property. If you come down here to Stahl road and come back to my place my lines runs from here to there to there and comes straight back and they have a road to where they dug my pond out for the whole thing with Wal-Mart, so I blocked it off it was mine. Area Plan Commissioners said I had to get 2 easements, one was for the house here, and one was for the house here.

President Thompson asked, is there anymore discussion form the Board?

President Thompson asked, Diann or Jerry do you have anything?

Attorney Altman stated, I have a report of the proposed findings of facts from George Loy, Attorney for the City of Monticello on the sign matter that we had held under advisement. The applicants have not done theirs, but they have two days, right Diann to do that.

Director Weaver stated, we gave them 30 days.

Attorney Altman stated, and that has not lapsed and I explained to her that lots of times they wait until the very last day to file that sort of thing. You will get this in the mail with your next application. If you want Diann I’ll give you a copy. I think that is it.

Director Weaver stated, we do have a hearing on Babca in April, I believe and that is to settle the fine on ……

President Thompson stated, the next meeting is April 17 and we just have one other thing.

Happy Birthday Diann.
