APPROVAL OF MINUTES

December 3, 2007 Regular Meeting:  Larry Fillinger motioned to approve the minutes as presented.  Linda Manson-Dempsey seconded.  Motion carried 5-0.

NEW BUSINESS

ZBA Case #01-08óD-19 Ventures, 1442 Old Pinckney Rd. , Tax ID #4710-02-400-005

Pat Keough from Advantage Engineering and Craig Whitney, owner of the property, were present to ask for setback variances for an open-air business.  They were previously granted variances for a restaurant, but have determined that a restaurant isnít viable at this time.  Mr. Keough said the ordinance requires a 100í setback off of D-19 and 80í off of Old Pinckney Road , which isnít possible on this parcel.  Mr. Whitney would enclose the area with a fence, and partial screening in the front. 

John Lowe said the ZBA considers variances on the setbacks, and the use would be reviewed by the Planning Commission.  Mr. Lowe said there are a number of questions that need to be answered by the attorney.  The response received today didnít address all of his questions.  He apologized to Mr. Whitney for the delay. 

Larry Fillinger motioned to table ZBA Case #01-08óD-19 Ventures until the February 4, 2008 ZBA meeting to gather more information from the attorney, and have the attorney be present at that meeting.  Linda Manson-Dempsey seconded.  Motion carried 5-0.

CALL TO THE PUBLIC

None heard.

ADJOURNMENT

Linda Manson-Dempsey motioned to adjourn the meeting at 7:55 p.m.   Larry Fillinger seconded.  Motion carried 5-0.
