Last week members of the Plymouth Plan Commission heard the request of three citizens who were seeking variances.

Charles and Kasi O’Neal needed a variance of development standards to build a secondary building before a primary building across the street from 701 Second Street.  The O’Neals have a home at 701 Second Street and want to build a garage on the property they own across the street. 

During the public hearing, there were no comments and the BZA unanimously approved the variance.   

The next request was a Special Use Variance to permit a 2-Family Duplex at 914 West Garro Street.  Martin Vigil told the Board of Zoning he wanted to demolish the current home and construct a duplex that is 1,260 square feet.   

The city standard requires the property to be 8,000 square feet.  There was also a requirement to have 2 off-street parking spaces per unit.  Vigil said he would put two in the front year and two in the backyard between the duplex and the current garage that will be staying.

There were comments during the public hearing and the Plymouth BZA denied the Special Use. 

The final request was from Tad and Carrie Heflick who needed a Variance of Use to construct a single-family dwelling and an accessory building on 7th Road just west of Oak Road in an Industrial Zone.

While the property was recently divided into two lots the Heflicks understand that an industrial building could be built right next to them. 

There was one letter against the request presented without a signature identifying the writer.  There were no other comments in the public hearing and the Plymouth Board of Zoning Appeals approved the variance of use for the Heflecks.
