<br />A little later in the meeting, Village Attorney Hasselquist
<br />WOLD PROPERTY ON VALLEY VIEW ROAD (4405) REZONED R-4 MULTIPLE FESIDENCE DISTRICT,
<br />FOR 14-UNIT APARTMENT BUILDING. In accordance with Published Notice of Hearing,
<br />Formal Public Hearing was held at this time on the Petition of Mr. Folke Victorsen
<br />for the Rezoning to Multiple Residence District R-4 of the Wold Property at 4405
<br />Valley View Road. (Informal Hearing had been held June 24, on mailed notice, but
<br />it was discovered proper published notice had not been given).
<br />that the proposed 14-unit apartment building meets requirements of zoning ordinance
<br />in every respect except one--that of setback from front lot line--and that Mr.
<br />Victorsen is requesting (and Planning Commission recommends favorably on) variance
<br />from this requirement to permit a 25-foot setback.
<br />and its relation to other buildings in the area, was presented.
<br />4440 Garrison Lane, objected to the size of the proposed building, saying he has had
<br />two appraisals and finds this apartment will depreciate the value of his property
<br />by about $l,OOO--and that property closer to the apartment will be depreciated by
<br />more than this. Saying that throughout the years the policy of the Planning
<br />Commission has been to use two-family and three-family dwellings adjacent to
<br />residential properties, Mr. Palen said he would have no objection to this use of
<br />the property,
<br />will make storm sewer construction necessary, for which the one-family dwellings
<br />in the area will be assessed, because the westerly lots are more shallow and the
<br />present pond between Valley View Road and Garrison Lane would have to be filled.
<br />Mrb Hite informed Council that there is now a drain from the pond; that this
<br />particular apartment willmot endanger the pond. There were no other objections
<br />registered, and none had been received prior 'to the Hearing.
<br />that several of his neighbors had not received notice, and Mr. Hite reported that
<br />notice was sent to owners of a11 properties within 500 feet of the site of proposed
<br />apartment, and that several property owners have talked with him concerning it.
<br />Mr,:'ViCtorsen asked that his petition be granted, saying he feels the lot is right
<br />for this use, that he has done a good job with the apartments he has already
<br />constructed in this area and that, if granted this request, will improve this
<br />Council dispense with second reading and adopt Ordinance as submitted:
<br />Mr. Hite told Council
<br />A plan of proposed building,
<br />Mr. Richard Palen,
<br />He added he is concerned that additional apartments to the west
