Harrison Township Board of Zoning Appeals met on July 11, 2011 at the township house on Weigand Road at 7:00pm.
Chairman Black called the meeting to order and the minutes of the April 11th, 2011 meeting were read. Cookson made a motion to accept the minutes as read, Smith seconded it. Roll call was held with members Egbert, Black, Cookson, Miles, Smith and Zoning inspector Mr. Joe DeFelice answering the roll call. Guest present were Dwight Karshner Jr. and Debbie Hulse.
The guests were present to ask for a permit for a home occupation for a home-based retail establishment at 5026 Lockbourne Road, Ashville, Ohio 43103. This request was recorded in the Circleville Herald, 20 days prior to this meeting and neighbors within 500 feet of this residence were notified. Mr. Karshner Jr. explained to the board that he had permission from the owner of the land to establish this business. After discussion with the board, Mr. Karshner understood that if he moved from this establishment to be called, SEED HOUSE, AT Hedges’ Farm that no one could continue a business there without new permits and etc. from the zoning board. This would not grandfather in another business, but when Mr. Karshner Jr leaves the business is done. Egbert made a motion that a vote be taken by the members for the conditional use of this land. Smith seconded it. Vote taken:
Cookson, yes, conditional use
Smith, yes, conditional use
Egbert, yes, Conditional use
Black, yes, Conditional use
Miles, yes, Conditional use
Each member signed the permit and Mr. Karshner Jr. was given a copy and a copy is retained with the secretary as well with the zoning inspector.
Mr. Karshner. Jr. and Debbie Hulse, the employee were excused.
Mr. DeFelice then presented the board the request that the secretary had sent to the secretary of the trustees. A written reply was sent back with the dates the members had been paid. After discussion among the ones that thought they didn’t paid, finally agreed that the trustees’ secretary was right and this matter has been cleared up with the satisfaction of the members of the zoning appeals board. As there was not more business to be held, Egbert made motion to adjourn the meeting and Cookson seconded it. Next meeting October 10, 2011.
