<br /> <br />CITY OF LAKEVILLE <br />PLANNING COMMISSION WORK SESSION MINUTES <br />June 28, 2018 <br /> <br /> <br />Chair Kaluza called the work session to order at 6:40 p.m. <br /> <br />Members Present: Chair Pat Kaluza, Karl Drotning, Scott Einck, Jason Swenson, Jeff <br />Witte, and Paul Jarvis <br /> <br />Members Absent: Vice Chair Jason Kelvie and Brooks Lillehei <br /> <br />Staff Present: Planning Director Daryl Morey, Associate Planner Frank Dempsey, and <br />Planning Assistant/Code Enforcement Technician Brent Jones <br /> <br />th <br />Others Present: Rob Thiry, 12165 – 175 Street <br /> <br /> <br />Rob Thiry Variance Discussion <br /> <br />Mr. Thiry provided a history of his property on Orchard Lake and the sheds he has <br />constructed since 2011. He said he called the City in 2011 and was told that he did not <br />need a permit to replace a shed less than 120 square feet in size on his property, which <br />he did. Last year he constructed another shed on his property, again without a permit <br />because he didn’t think he needed one. The City received a complaint from a neighbor <br />and he was told by Planning Department staff that he needed to remove the new shed. <br />He explained that his sheds and property are nice and well-kept and he would like to <br />keep them. That is why he is requesting a variance. <br /> <br />The Planning Commission concurred that Mr. Thiry’s request does not meet the criteria <br />required by the Zoning Ordinance for granting a variance and explained that Planning <br />Department staff was doing its job in following up on the complaint. Mr. Thiry stated he <br />did not want to waste any more of the Planning Commission’s time and agreed to <br />remove the newest shed, which is the one the City received a complaint on. He stated <br />the best way to remove the shed without tearing it apart would be to access it from the <br />lake in the winter. It was agreed that the City would give Mr. Thiry a deadline of <br />January 31, 2019 to remove the shed, weather dependent. <br /> <br /> <br />The work session adjourned at 7:05 p.m. <br /> <br />Respectfully submitted, <br /> <br /> <br />Daryl Morey, Planning Director <br /> <br />
