Nonconforming Use

The applicants wish to change the nonconforming use to a business office. Phil

Wince explained the nature ofthe advertising business,saying no products will be made

there,no customers will visit the office,no signag no noise,no traffic,no nuisance,and f' s_)

no changes will be made except to move in their furniture. There is sufficient parking on- L,rsite.

Nobody works in the office on nights or weekends;no lighting is requested. The g

business would utilize mailing services,telephone and Internet to conduct the business.

No additional landscaping is required.

Neighbor Bob Seith asked whether they would use the garage,and they said the

entire building would be used,except for the garage. They do not plan to sublet.

Mr. Stewart applied the criteria for nonconforming use:

1. The proposed change of a nonconforming use will not increase the burden on

public facilities and service such as streets,utilities,schools and refuse disposal

imposed by the existing nonconforming use. It will not increase these burdens because

the activity ofthe business will be less than the previous use. There are few employees 00 '

and no customers. There are no other uses than the office activities, no products being

delivered or made and there would be a low volume of trash.

2. The proposed change of a nonconforming use will not increase be detrimental

nor disturbing to existing uses in the district and will not entail a use which

constitutes a nuisance or hazard to any persons in the surrounding use district. The

proposed use will not be detrimental or hazardous to others. There would be a lesser

volume of traffic than the previous business.
