P.I.N. 01-01-400-006:  Stana Emmerson, representing the owner: Gina Nikolayevich, is proposing to repair a house that was damaged by fire and rendered uninhabitable on a property located at 35495 Myelle Road in Franklin Township. The 5-acre property is zoned A-1, Agricultural District, and the house was a pre-existing, legal, non-conforming use. The Zoning Ordinance allows that a Building Permit to repair the damage to a legal, non-conforming house may be granted, provided an application is made within 180 days of the date of the damage. The damage occurred on January 21, 2015, however, no such application was submitted within the 180-day time period. In order to repair the house on the property, a Variation must be granted from the 180-day requirement. Before a Variation can be granted, a public hearing must be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.


A public hearing will be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, June 1, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. in the DeKalb County Administration Building, East Conference Room, south entrance, 110 E. Sycamore St., Sycamore, IL 60178.


All interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard, as this will be the only opportunity for public input on the application. The application for Variation, Petition FR-17-7, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Community Development Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.
