LIMERICK PA – Consideration of a zoning variance needed so a property owner can build a garage near her home is on the agenda of the Limerick (PA) Township Zoning Hearing Board, which is scheduled to meet May 26 (2010; Wednesday) at 6:30 p.m. in the municipal building, 646 W. Ridge Pike, Limerick PA. The meeting is open to the public, which also can comment during the variance hearing.

Applicant Holly C. Paulus wants to build a 24-foot by 26-foot garage “for the purposes of storing cars, motorcycles, and other miscellaneous household items” at her single-family home at 39C Fruitville Rd., Limerick PA, according to an advertisement that appeared May 11 in The (Pottstown PA) Mercury newspaper, the township’s publication of record for legal notices.

The Paulus home is located in an R-3 Residential Zoning District, and is served by a private well and septic system. Zoning law states that the proposed garage requires a minimum side yard setback of 50 feet; the plans currently call for a setback of only 32 feet.

The board also has reserved its right to conduct other business during its meeting, if it chooses.
