CITY OF WAVERLY
PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Waverly Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing at 7:00 p.m. in the council chambers of Waverly City Hall on Thursday, September 16, 2021 to consider a variance request submitted by Shannon and Sarah Kobus for the property located at 1503 North Shore Drive, Waverly, Minnesota.
The variance, if granted, would allow replacement of the existing cabin with a full-time residence. A variation of the regulations in the Waverly Zoning Ordinance is proposed for Shoreland setback rules. A front yard setback along North Shore Drive is proposed to vary from the required distances in the Waverly Zoning Ordinance.  The variations are due to lot dimension limitations.
Specifically, the proposal includes a setback distance of 30.3 feet to the Ordinary High-Water line of Waverly Lake and .9 feet on the west corner and 11.1 feet on the east corner in the front yard.
Interested parties are invited to attend the public hearing in person or by agent or attorney to provide comments in favor or in opposition of the proposed variance application.
