Public Hearing

Bryan and Bridgette Jenner wish to build a pole barn on their property located at 9211 Cherry Valley Road in unincorporated Kingston. The Jenners are proposing to locate the building in front of their house and ten (10) feet off their east property line. Article 5 of the DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance requires that accessory structures be located behind the house, no closer to a road than the house, and at least twenty (20) feet from a side property line. In order to build a pole barn in the location they are proposing, Variations must be granted by the County Board from these requirements. Before a Variation can be granted, a public hearing must be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.

 

The Jenners are requesting approval of such Variations from the Zoning Ordinance for the property located at 9211 Cherry Valley Road, Kingston. A public hearing will be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, October 25, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. in the DeKalb County Administrative Center, Conference Room East, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, 60178. Because this will be the only opportunity for public input on this application, all interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard. The Variation petition, KI-18-42, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Community Development Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.
