Public Hearing unofficial minutes 7/9/2019

Public Hearing called to order at 6:30 p.m. by Chairman Michael with Trustees Deffenbaugh and Dunn and Fiscal Officer Cofojohn present.  Robert Herman of CESO and Chad Brunner of Loves Country Stores, zoning inspector Sandy Nutter, Fire Chief Mark Garvin and resident Karen Captain were present.

Chairman Michael led all in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Chairman Michael explained that the purpose of this hearing is to determine whether to change the NE corner of I76 and SR 225 to all commercial.  Michael asked the representatives of Loves Country Stores to explain how the parcel is zoned and why the change is needed.

Chad Brunner explained that the most of the property that they need is already zoned commercial but due to the wetlands in the parcel, they needed additional space to cover parking.  This change would zone the entire parcel commercial.

Karen Captain began asking about why the Township would change the property to commercial.  She then started asking about truck pollution.  She kept asking questions over and over and would not allow anyone to answer the questions she was asking.  Chairman Michael explained again that the purpose of this hearing was to determine the zoning of the parcel and nothing else.  Karen continued to ask the same question about truck pollution.  Chairman Michael continued the meeting.

RESOLUTION #19-102:  Motion by Michael to accept regional planning and the board of commission’s recommendation to rezone the parcel on the NE corner of I76 and SR225 to commercial use, seconded by Deffenbaugh.
