Public Hearing


Louis Faivre owns property located at 5236 Perry Road, in unincorporated Milan Township. The property currently contains two (2) residences and a number of other buildings. He plans to split off one of the residences on to its own parcel. However, one of the houses would be only 15.8 feet from the new lot line. The minimum setback required by the DeKalb County Ordinance from a house to a property line in the agricultural district is 20 feet. In order to divide the house off as proposed, a Variation must be granted from the setback requirement. Before a Variation can be granted, a public hearing must be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.


Louis Faivre has requested such a Variation for the property located at 5236 Perry Road, Malta, IL 60150. A public hearing will be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, October 26, 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 MI-17-13, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Community Development Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.


The subject property is zoned A-1, Agricultural District, and is legally described as follows:


The North ½ of the North West ¼ of Section 24, Township 39 North, Range 3, East of the third principal meridian, situated in the County of DeKalb and State of Illinois.


P.I.N. 10-24-100-001


The requested Variation is from Section 4.02.E.2 of the DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance in order to allow a building to be setback 15.8 feet from a side lot line, in lieu of a minimum of 20 feet as required in the A-1, Agricultural District.
