Public Hearings

Todd Tasche is proposing to construct an accessory structure, in the form of a pole barn, on the property located at 31038 Madison Street, Genoa, in unincorporated Genoa Township. Mr. Tasche would like to place the pole barn to the southwest of his house, however, the subject property is a corner lot, and the proposed location would result in the pole barn being located in the corner-side yard between his house and Madison Street. The DeKalb County Zoning Ordinance requires that accessory structures not be located closer to a street than the residence, and that they not be placed between the residence and a street. In order to allow the proposed pole barn in this location, Variations must be granted from these requirements. Before such Variations can be granted, a public hearing must be held by the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.

Mr. Tasche is requesting approval of such Variations from the Zoning Ordinance for the property located at 31038 Madison Street, Genoa. A public hearing will be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, August 22, 2019, 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, GE-19-09, is available for inspection at the DeKalb County Community Development Department, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, (815) 895-7188.
