Public hearings set to begin at 7 pm tonight at Trenton City Hall

Planning and zoning

Five public hearings are scheduled when the Trenton Planning and Zoning Commission and the Trenton Board of Adjustments meet Monday evening May 7.

Earl Nance, in care of Justin Collins, is asking for property to be rezoned from heavy industrial to mixed use. It’s to allow for the operation of a food business in a restricted zone and to make use of the vacant property at 1115 Shanklin Avenue. A conditional use permit is also being sought to allow the operation of a food business and to make use of the vacant property at that same location. Those requests are to be placed before the Trenton Planning and Zoning Commission.

The Trenton Board of Adjustments is scheduled to hold three public hearings.

Gilbert McVay is requesting a 12-foot variance on the front yard setback requirement of 25-feet and a 48-square foot variance on the maximum area of an accessory structure of 720-square feet which is to allow for the construction of a garage measuring 24 by 32 feet. McVay also is seeking a 1,680 square foot variance on the maximum area of an accessory structure of 720 square feet and four-foot variance on the maximum height requirement of 17 feet on an accessory structure which would allow for the construction of a storage building measuring 40 by 60 feet at 1721 East Second Street.

Robert and Janet Akin are seeking a 13-foot variance on the required 25-foot front yard setback requirement to allow for a six-foot extension to an existing deck on a house at 109 Maupin.

Morse and Son Properties seek an eight-foot variance on the side yard next-to-street setback requirement of 15-feet which is to allow for the construction of deck measuring 10 by 16 feet on a house at 503 East 8th Court.

The public hearings are at Trenton City Hall when the Board of Adjustments and the Planning and Zoning Commission meet Monday evening at 7 o’clock.
