There will be five public hearings tonight at Trenton City Hall regarding requests for variances in zoning regulations. Each hearing will be presented to the Trenton Board of Adjustments, which has the final say on variances.
One request is from Dollar General for a 15-foot variance on the required 20-foot setback requirement on any side adjacent to the street. This would allow the new building’s pad to be closer to the street. The Dollar Mart business is planned for the location at 1810 East 28th Street in Trenton.
Colton Shaw of Trenton is seeking a nine-foot variance on the front yard setback requirement of 25 feet. This would permit the construction of a 9 by 14-foot front porch at the residence located at 118 Maupin Street.
Bill Swopes is requesting a variance to construct a 30-by-40-foot building at 418 Iowa Boulevard. Tom and Dianna Stickler are asking for a variance to build a 30 by-30-foot structure at 2003 Tower Street. Additionally, Randy and Marcia Schroeder, representing Doodlebugs Day Care in Trenton, are seeking a variance to place a 12 by 24-foot building at 1309 Gilmore Street.
The Board of Adjustments will conduct the public hearings beginning at 6 p.m. tonight at Trenton City Hall.
