Public Hearing

 

Edward Peterson owns property located at 31316 Glidden Road, in unincorporated Kingston Township. The property currently contains a residence and a number of farm buildings. He plans to split off the residence on to its own parcel. However, the house and one of the farm buildings would be only 7 and 7.9 feet, respectively, from the new lot line. The minimum setback required by the DeKalb County Ordinance from a building 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.

 

Edward Peterson has requested such a Variation for the property located at 31316 Glidden Road, Kingston, IL 60145. A public hearing will be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, October 26, 2017, at 2:00 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 KI-17-14, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Community Development Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL (815) 895-7188.
