Chairman Bronson noted that the meeting was required by Section 16.1 Site Plan Review Procedures Item 1C – For Permitted and Special Approval Uses in an Industrial District. We review this and then formulate a recommendation for the Township Board and then they will either approve or deny based on our recommendation. He then asked how they were doing on the Drain Commission’s recommendations. Mr. Brand said that everything was submitted to the them, they sent back a letter that he forwarded on to the engineer. All their concerns have been addressed.
Chairman Bronson handed the questioning over to the Building Inspector Dennis Kolar at this time. Mr. Kolar noted that the building code looks at types of construction, use group, setbacks, fire resistance of exterior walls and things of that nature. He stated that on the plan it didn’t say how they were coming up with the square footage or how the building was designed. The architect called him and told him that they were going with an unlimited building design. Unlimited building designs require a 60’ side yard setbacks from property lines. If they go with an allowable area design the side yard setbacks would only be 50’. The drawing for the building only had 36’ 4”.
Mr. Kolar said there was two other items that needed to be addressed. The façade of the exterior of a building in an industrial district needs to contain 60%, brick, stone, split face block or scored block if it abuts to a road or residential district. Also, there was nothing on the drawing about exterior lighting. Mr. Brand said he would take care of these issues.
After a short discussion among the board Mr. Sedlar made a motion to recommend to the Township Board to accept the site plan provided the applicant addressed the three issues discussed. Primarily the side setback, the makeup of the façade and the exterior lighting. Mr. Plumb seconded the motion and all were in favor.
Old Business – There was no old business
New Business - There was no new business.
With nothing further to discuss Gary Lazette made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:38 p.m., David Sedlar supported his motion and it was unanimously accepted.
