D. Barn Approval from someone that is not Dusty
Realtor Hailey Lang is seeking information for her client. The property her client is interested in
purchasing 9749 Creekside Dr., they would like to put up a building on a parcel that is separate, but
connected to, the parcel the residence is on. This is the same situation as Dusty Hasper’s. The board
advised her what would need to be done but cannot guarantee anything now, for multiple reasons.

E. Dusty Hasper Public Hearing Barn approval
Dusty would like to build a pole barn. He has 40 acres of property, but it is on two parcels. The two
parcels are roughly 29 acres and 11 acres. The issue is that the parcel that he wants to build the barn on is separate but connected to the parcel that has the residence. Our zoning requires that a residence
must be erected on the parcel before other buildings can be built. Dusty is asking approval from the
board to be allowed to build on the parcel that does not have the residence.

The main discussion that was had is what happens if he sells that parcel that only has the building
without the other parcel that has the residence. If and how the township could ensure this doesn’t
happen in the future to ensure the integrity of our zoning rules.

Supervisor Sicble made a motion to approve Dusty Hasper’s request.
Supervisor Springer 2nd the motion
Vote: Eric Yes, Mark Yes, Monte Yes, Gaylen Yes, Jerry - No

Approval is granted.
Chairman Richard closed the zoning portion of the meeting at 7:59pm.

5. Adjourn Chairman Richard adjourned the meeting at 8:00pm
