Site plan for construction of storage sheds on parcel owned by ELT Trucking off Pennzoil Drive was reviewed.  Earl Link of ELT presented formal drawings of the proposed construction prepared by Michael Todd Engler, PE. (Original submission was hand drawn.)  Earl stated access will be via Pennzoil Drive even though his property does not front on Pennzoil.  He does not feel Warren Oil, which owns the small triangle between his property and Pennzoil will object.  If they raise an objection, he will construct a new access on right of way he retained on parcel sold to the Jackson Township Fire Co.  There were no other comments.  Motion by Don, seconded by Bruce to approve the site plan.  All in favor, motion passed.

Richard Kastelic was in attendance and had several questions regarding building set-backs.  Mr. Kastelicís company is negotiating the possible purchase The Village Personal Care Home, formerly the Blarney Stone.  If they purchase they intend to make additions to the side and rear of the present building.  This will create an issue with the rear set back.  He was advised that a variance from the Zoning Hearing Board would be required to for any set back change.  He was also advised to review the Zoning Ordinance with respect to the percentage of a lot coverage allowed by a commercial building and accessory uses.    

Adjournment:
Motion to adjourn at 6:55 PM by Bruce, seconded by Don.  All in favor, meeting adjourned.
