PUBLIC HEARING: President Myers opened the public hearing for Rodney Taylor and called on the petitioner to address the board. Mr. Taylor introduced himself and stated that he is the owner of 1559 Short Oak Street and is petitioning the board for a use variance. He explained he has a 2880 square foot pole type building and due to his line of work as a business owner, his intent is to use 1200 square feet as his own personal living space and the remaining space for his business. He stated he was told by Mr. Payne, Building Inspector that the property is zoned Open Industrial and allows for a business use, however a dwelling unit is not allowed in Open Industrial and would require a Use Variance. Mr. Taylor added he had spoken to the neighbors and they said they didn’t have a problem with what he is doing. Myers thanked Mr. Taylor and called for any public comments or concerns. It was noted that two neighbors were present to support the variance. Hearing no other questions or comments, Myers closed the public hearing and called for board questions or comments, hearing none, Myers continued with the Staff Report, prepared by Sam Payne, Zoning Administrator, and the finding of the facts. The board took notice that a quorum existed, the public hearing was advertised in the Frankfort Times on August 29, 2019, emailed to WILO radio and the property owners within 100 feet were sent notice of hearing by Certified Mailings.
