Entered Second (hii Matter at the Chardon Postoffi/v MUNSON Chairman Veron J. Warner, of the Munson Township Trustees, and Cair man Martin C. Miller, of the Munson Zoning Commission, have jointly announced that the first changes in Munson’s five year old Zoning Reso lution are soon to be made. A public hearing has been called by the Zoning Commission for eight o’clock Monday night, January 19, 1953, at the Village Hall. Everyone is invited to about the changes. A week later, Jan uary 26, 1953, the Truftees will welcome any citizen who wishes to be heard with respect to the changes at the regular Trus tees meeting. All of the changes in Mun son’s Zoning Ordinance are small. They are based upon the experience of the Zoning Com mission in the last five years. The modifications are designed to strengthen the Resolution and make it serve all the people of the township. Most of the changes are merely to take care of minor details not covered by the original Reso lution as passed. A new rule will permit any one who wants to take in up to five boarders to do so any-1 where in the township. More I than that is a business and must be done only in the busi-1 ness area. The Resolution how says how I far houses must be from prop erty side line. It doesn't say how far apart houses must be and for fire reasons, that is to be covered. Some people with very deep lots and wide fronts on a road would like to sell off the front or back. The new rules state how that can be done. Some folks want guest houses on their lots in addi tion to their own houses. New rules covering such buildings are proposed. Sometimes builders forget or neglect to take away their tool sheds. These can become an1 unsightly nuisance. Rules cover ing such sheds arc included. Finally, a temporary special permit is granted to Bass Lake, Inc., to remove peat from an! area east and north of Bass Lake. This swamp area originally zoned for first residences. The original Zon ing Commission was not that it was totally useless for that purpose. Bass' Lake was asked for the right to remove the peat to make the area suitable for residential use. Some of the area will become part of a larger Bass Lake. told The Attorney General of the State of Ohio has ruled that a Zoning Commission has the power and duty to control an activity such as the of peat. Part of the in the Resolution are the manner and the which this operation be handled. Minimum ence to rights of abutting prop erty owners is the basis for the proposed change in the Resolution. removal changes to state time in shall be interfer- The text of all the changes and the map of the Peat Bog can be inspected at the home of Martin Miller, Chairman of the Zoning Commission between the hours of two and five p.m. on Sunday, January 18, Since the Zoning Resolution was accepted by the voters five years ago, over 180 build ing permits have been issued in the township by the Zoning Inspectors. The Commission and the Appeals Board, chair manned by Lynn H. Reiter, all feel that the new changes are for the good of the whole area. Unless there are objec tions to the changes, after the two hearings, they will auto matically become part of Mun son’s Zoning Resolution.
