Zoning Board of Appeals Public Hearing – Proposed Private Road Variances – July 21 at 4 pm

Zoning Board of Appeals Public Hearing – Proposed Private Road Variances – July 21 at 4 pm

Notice is hereby given: Ann Arbor Charter Township Zoning Board of Appeals will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, July 21 at 4:00 pm at Township Hall, 3792 Pontiac Trail, Ann Arbor, MI  48105 to consider the following:

ZBA-05-2015:  Application filed by property owner DF Land Development for the following two variances in order to construct two private roads to facilitate dividing 210 acres of land northwest of Warren Rd. and Dixboro Rd:

  • Parcel I -09-01-300-002: The existing driveway off of Warren Road is within 50 ft. of an old barn; applicant is requesting a variance from section 74-501 which requires a 50 ft. front setback, so the barn can remain once the driveway is upgraded and becomes a private road.
  • Parcel I -09-01-100-013: There is an area of land between the existing driveway off Dixboro Rd and a stream that consists of soil not suitable for building. The applicant is proposing to include this land as part of the two lots north of the driveway in the parcel division plan since the land is unusable as a standalone parcel. The applicant is requesting a variance from Section 74-2 (which describes a lot as having a front line that separates it from a street), in order to allow 2 lots to have frontage on both sides of a street, ie to be bisected by the road.

Full copies of the applications and plans are available for review or purchase at the Township Hall.  Written comments may be submitted in person or by mail prior to the hearings at the Ann Arbor Township Hall, Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, or emailed to rbasch@aatwp.org. All interested parties are invited to attend and express their views.
