A. 'BZA-3964.10, 217 Rita Avenue
p
This is a request by Dorral & Kimberly Goforth to construct a 900 square foot,::dbtached
garage at 217 Rita Avenue that would have a 30 foot front yard setback. The applicant is
also proposing to construct a 516 square foot, attached carport at this location. Section
1248.03(b) of the Zoning Code'requires a front yard setback of 60 feet for a detached
garage, limits the size of a detached garage at this location to 840 square feet and limits
the total allowable square footage of all accessory structures to 1,200 square feet.
Variances of 30. feet to the front yard setback requirement, 60 feet to the allowable
garage square footage and 216 square feet to the total allowable accessory structure
square footage are therefore, being requested. Staff recommended denial of a variance
of 60 feet to the allowable garage area and approval of variances of 30 feet to the front
yard setback requirement to permit a new detached garage and 156 square feet to the
total allowable accessory structure( square footage to permit a 516 square foot attached
carport at 217 Rita Avenue based on a finding that only the front yard setback and
combined accessory structure square footage variances are consistent with the practical
difficulty criteria of Section .1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as
detailed in the staff report for this application.
Ms. Stachowiak stated that she originally she recommended denial of the variance for the
combined accessory structure square footage. However, at the public hearing that was
held on October 14, 2010 it was revealed that the majority of the area that is labeled as a

Board .of Zoning Appeals Minutes -October 21, 2010 Page 2

"carport" on the site plan is actually just^a 'covered porch. There will only 'be room for one
car under the lean-to and therefore, the proposal will not be inconsistent with . the intent
and purpose of the ordinance or the criteria used to evaluate variances.

,Dorral Goforth, 217 Rita. Avenue, spoke in support of his request. He said that he has
no problem with complying with the 840 square foot detached garage limitation. He also
said that ,the area behind the :garage is a natural drainage area and if the setback
variance is not approved,'the garage will have to be located in this area which will create.
a drainage problem, not only for his property but for the adjoining neighbors as well.

Barbara Falcsik, 211 'Rita Avenue, spoke in support of the request. She said that she
lives right next door to the Goforths and they have improved the property immensely
since they moved in. She said that the proposal will further improve the property and
hence, the neighborhood in general.

At the public hearing held on October 14, 2010, the following individuals spoke:

Ruth. Taber, 230 Rita Avenue: Support the requests

Ronald Whitney, 218 Rita Avenue: Supports the requests

Kimberly Goforth, 217 Rita Avenue: Spoke in support of her request

Dorral Goforth, 217 Rita Avenue: Spoke in support of his request.

Ms. Horne stated that a lot of questions were asked and answered at the public hearing.
She asked if any of the Board members had any other questions. Seeing none, Ms.
Horne stated that she is supportive of the requests as recommended by the staff. She
also stated that she would like to invite the Goforths to attend the 'Old Everett
Neighborhood Association meetings.

Ms. Ailing moved to deny a variance of 60 feet to the allowable garage area and approval of
variances of 30 feet to the front yard setback requirement to permit a new detached garage and
156 square feet to the total allowable accessory structure square footage to permit a 516 square
foot attached carport at 217 Rita Avenue based on a finding that only the front yard setback and
combined accessory structure square footage variances are consistent with the practical difficulty
criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff
report for this application. Seconded by B. Williams.

B. BZA-3965.10, 2821 W. Jolly Road

This is a request by Melissia Patton to permit a hair salon in the home at 2821 W. Jolly
Road. The proposed . hair salon would serve up to 12 customers per day and would
include a hydraulic chair, commercial hair dryer and a shampoo sink. Section
1248.03(e)(7) of the Zoning Code states:

"No equipment is used, except equipment which is normally used for purely
domestic or household purposes. Equipment not normally used for purely
domestic or household purposes may be installed if the Board of Zoning Appeals
approves such use. The Board shall approve of such use if it is satisfied that the
intensity of use will not be increased to a level that will adversely impact any lot
within 300 feet of the lot seeking Board approval."

The use of hair salon equipment for a home occupation 2821 W. Jolly Road is, therefore,
being requested. Staff recommended approval of BZA 3965.10', based upon the findings
of fact as detailed in this staff report, with the following conditions: (1) the applicant must
live in the home and adhere to all of the conditions required for the operation of a home
occupation; and (2) The hair salon is limited to one swivel chair, one professional hair
dryer and one shampoo sink.

Ms. Stachowiak stated that the criteria for evaluating home occupation requests is
different from that of variances. She said that in this case, no practical difficulty or
unnecessary hardship needs to be established. The Board just needs to find that the
equipment will not negatively impact the surrounding area. Ms. Stachowiak stated that all
property owners within 300 feet of 2821 W. Jolly Road were notified and not comments
were received.

Melissia Patton, 2821 W. Jolly Road, spoke in support of her request. She asked about
the sign regulations for a home occupation and whether she could, have a sign on the
inside of the window.

Ms. Stachowiak stated that the ordinance allows a one square foot sign, mounted flat
against the wall of the house.

At the public hearing held on October 14, 2010, the following individuals spoke:

Mel issia Patton: Spoke in support of her request

Michael Brown: Supports the requests

Ms. Horne asked if any of the Board members have questions. Seeing none, Ms. Horne
stated that her only concern was parking and that issue has already been addressed.

Ms. Shinn moved to approve BZA-3965.10, to permit a hair salon in the home at 2821 W. Jolly
Road that would include a hydraulic chair, commercial hair dryer and a shampoo sink. on a
finding that the request will not negatively impact the owners and occupants of property within
300 feet of the site, with the conditions that the applicant must live in the home and adhere to all
of the conditions required for the operation of a home occupation, and the hair salon is limited to
one swivel chair, one professional hair dryer and one shampoo sink. Seconded by B. Williams.

C. BZA-3966.10, 1436 Cambridqe Road

This is a request by Theodorus Wilbrink for a variance of 5 feet to the front yard setback
requirement to permit the construction of an addition to the front of the garage 1436
Cambridge Road on a finding that the variance would be consistent with the practical
'difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as
detailed in the staff report for this application, with the condition that the addition is
consistent with the rest of the house in terms of design, materials and color.

Theodorus Wibrink, 58 Apple 'Blossom Lane, Okemos, spoke in support of his


request. He stated that there is a basement below the garage and since the pavement
,has cracked, liquids can leak into the house which would be a safety hazard to the
occupants. Mr. Wilbrink stated that the garage will fit in with the setbacks and the design
of the other houses in the area.

At the public hearing held on October 14, 2010, the following individuals spoke:

Rosemary Hocij: Spoke in support of her request

John Hocij: Spoke in support of his request

Theodorus Wilbrink: Spoke in support of his request

Ms. Horne stated that there was a lengthy discussion about this case during the public
hearing on October 14, 2010. She asked if any of the Board members have questions.
Seeing none, Ms. Horne stated that the proposal will be a real asset to the neighborhood
and hence, to the city in general. She said that it is nice to see the applicants investing in
their property and she is supportive of the variance.

Ms. Ailing moved to approve BZA-3966.10, for a variance of 5 feet to the front yard setback
requirement to permit a new attached garage at 1436 Cambridge Road, on a finding that the
variance will be consistent with the practical difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the
impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for this application, with the
condition that the garage addition is consistent with the existing house in terms of design, color
and materials. Seconded by B. Williams.

Laurie Douglas, 2305 Arlington Road, spoke in support of her request. She said that
she would like to be able to park one car in the garage and cannot do so right now
because it is too small. Ms. Douglas said that she spoke with the neighbors about the
variance and they did not have any concerns.

Mr. McGrain asked if anyone else wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.

Ms. Horne stated that she is supportive of the request. She said that the configuration of
the lot constitutes a practical difficulty that warrants a variance.

HEARINGS/ACTION

A. BZA-3960.10, 1135 N. Jenison Street

This is a request by Steve Kilpatrick to construct an addition to the south side of the
house at 1135 N. Jenison Street that would have a setback of 2 feet from the side lot line.
Section 1248.08 of the Zoning Code requires a side yard setback of 4.1 feet for the

This is a request by Jeremy Francis to construct a porch on the front of the house at 1105
Parkdale Street that would have a front yard setback of 19 feet. Section 1248.07 of the
Zoning Code requires a front yard setback of 22 feet for the subject property. A variance

neighborhood. Mr. Francis said that the neighbors are enthusiastic about the proposal.

Mr. McGrain said that the report indicates that the applicant purchased. the property in
2003. He asked when the current porch was constructed.

said that the porch will be designed to tie into the design/character of the house.

Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes July 8, 201.0 Page 2

Ms. Horne said that she went past the house yesterday and noticed that there 'is a new
driveway.
Mr. Francis said that he put the new driveway in 3 years ago and he worked with the
neighbor since it is a joint driveway.
Mr. Hilts asked if anyone else wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.
Mr. McGrain said that the proposed porch will be consistent with the porches that already
exist on either side of the house. He also said that the existing metal porch roof is not
characteristic of houses from the 1920 's.Mr.'McGrain said that the new porch will fit in
much better with the architecture of the house and the rest of the neighborhood.

B. BZA-3959.10; 130Regent Street,131&135 Leslie Street


This is a request by David Muylle to construct a new house at 130 Regent Street that
would have a front yard setback of 13 feet. The applicant also proposes to construct new
houses at 131 and 135 Leslie Street that would have front yard setbacks of 16 feet.
Section 1248.07 of the Zoning Code requires a front yard setback of 20 feet for these
properties. Variances of 7 feet and 4 feet to the front yard setback requirements are
therefore, being requested. Staff recommended approval of the request on a finding that
the variance would be consistent with the practical difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c)
and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for this
application.
David Muylle, 124 Regent Street, spoke in support of his request. Mr. Muylle said that
the new houses that are the subject of the variance request are part of a larger project
that includes 14 total condominium units. He said that there is a 30 foot wide storm
sewer easement that runs through the center of the property and will be used for
common open space. The intent is to create a walkable community which is why the
parking areas are going to be located around the edges of the site in order to separate

Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes July 8, 2010 'Page 3

the vehicles from the pedestrian areas. :Mr. ;Muylle said that the neighborhood has helped
design the .project. In April, 2007 there was a design charrette that included
representatives from the neighborhood as well as Mary Swanson and her husband of
Swanson Design Studios. They have also utilized the master planning process as well.
The site will have natural drainage and the existing trees will be preserved. 'Mr. Muylle
said that he lives in the neighborhood and owns several properties in the area. He stated
that some of the houses along Regent Street are even closer to the front property line
that what is being proposed. The new houses will also have shallow front yard setbacks
and will have access to sidewalks and pedestrian pathways in order to maintain a strong
social connection through pedestrian interaction. The pedestrian pathways will be 'brick
or some type of permeable surface and the common area will be designed in a very
aesthetically pleasing manner.

Mr. Muylle said that the houses will be relatively small in order to create a "cottage"
atmosphere. Two parking spaces per unit are required, however, they may not be
needed given the culture of the area. For that reason, the parking structures will be
designed to have alternate uses such as patios, gardens, etc.

Mary Swanson,. Swanson 'Design Studios, 329 E. Grand River Avenue, :spoke in
support of the request. She said that each unit will be stick built and will be thoughtfully
designed. It will not be a modular community.

Lynne Martinez, 306 Leslie Street, spoke in support of the request. Ms. Martinez said
that she lives about 2 blocks away from the.project site and she is strongly in favor of Mr.
Muylles request. She said that Mr. Muylle has done a great job restoring houses on the
east side and is a great partner with other neighborhood revitalization groups in the area.
Ms. Martinez said that the proposal is consistent with the goals of the master plan which
is to create nodes of high density residential development near commercial areas with
public transportation facilities. She said that she is working on a market study to make'
the east side more friendly and marketable for people who are coming of age. She said
that handicap accessible homes are very important so that older people can stay in the
area.

Mr. Hilts said that Ms. Martinez could get help for the study from the MSU graduate
planning program.

Scott Neumann, 327 Lathrop Street, spoke in support of the request. He stated that
the support from the neighborhood for this project is overwhelming. He also said that the
project offers a place for the aging population to live as well as an environment that will
attract a younger population.

Mr. Hilts asked if anyone else wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.

Mr. Hilts stated that brick pavers are a maintenance problem and cause people to trip
because of the unevenness of the surface. They are also not wheelchair-friendly. He
asked about barrier free access for the new units.

Mr. Muylle said that there will be no steps to get into the buildings. There will be a first
floor den or bedroom in each of the units and a large bathroom that can accommodate a
wheel chair if necessary. He said that he wants this to be an intergenerational
development.

Mr. McGrain said that it is great to see this project come to fruition. He asked if the units
will be marketable.

Board 'of Zoning Appeals Minutes July 8,2010 Page 4

Mr. Muylle said that if they do not sell, he can rent them out.

Mr. 'McGrain said that this is a well thought out project that he. is happy to support. He
said that the trend should bete focus on smaller, in-fill homes.

Mr. Hilts said that the project fits in with the "Cool Cities" initiative as well.

Ms. Horne stated that she has been involved in Lansing planning since 1972 and this
project is a dream come true. She said that the project will help to retain the population
and will be very aesthetically pleasing.

'Ms. Ailing commended Mr. Muylle for involving the neighborhood with the planning for
this project. She said that the process that Mr. Muylle took to develop this project should
be a model for other projects in the city.

Mr. ,McGain said that the practical difficulty involves the easement that runs through the
center of the development. He also said that this is a planned residential development
being inserted into an existing neighborhood and the proposed setbacks will be
consistent with the setback patterns that have already been established in the area. To
that end, the spirit of the ordinance is being observed.

M. Ailing moved to approve BZA-3959.10 variances of 7 feet and 4 feet to the front yard setback
requirements to permit a new house at 130 Regent Street that would have a front yard. setback of
13 feet and new houses at 131 and 135 Leslie 'Street that would have front yard setbacks of 16
feet, on a finding that the variances will be consistent with the practical difficulty criteria of
Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for

III. .HEARINGSIACTION cf.) ien 3

A. BZA-3956.10, 230 Bingham Street .


This is a request by Jeremy Dowsett on behalf of Reformed Church of America;. et 8'13 a-'
The applicant is proposing to establish a church in the existing building at 230 tB;ngham c
St. which is zoned "C" Residential. Section 1250.04(b) of the Zoning Code states that
churches in the "C" district must be located on a collector, principal or minor arjial did
must be located on a lot that is at least 2 acres in size. In addition, Section 1284.13(b)(1)
requires one parking space for each 3 seats in the church sanctuary. Based on the
proposed seating capacity, 25 parking spaces will be required. Staff recommended
approval of the request on a finding that the variances would be consistent with the
practical difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section
1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for this application.

Mr. Swix stated that there are other churches in the area that do not have two acres. He
asked where people will park if the school to the north closes. Mr. Swix also asked about
parking for the day care 'business that previously utilized the building at 230 Bingham.
Ms. Stachowiak said that there are other properties in the area that the applicant could
use for parking. She also said that the child care center utilized on-street parking and the
4 or 5 parking spaces that are on the site while the occupants of the upper level
apartments were gone during the day.
Ms. Stachowiak said that the zoning of the property is "C" Residential and therefore, the

Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes May 13, 2010 Page 2

only use that could be established in the building by right is a duplex. There are already
2 units on the upper level of the building. The entirebuilding is too large to be used
exclusively for 2 residential units. Since there are only 4-5 on-street parking spaces on
the site, and they are used for the 2 residential units, any use that would occupy the first
floor of the building would need a parking variance. iMs. Stachowiak said that the child
care center that previously operated in the building was also granted a parking variance.

Ms. Stachowiaksaid that overuse of on-street parking in residential neighborhoods can


become a real problem. She said that the church will focus in outreach efforts on the
surrounding neighborhood so that most people can walk, rather than drive to the church.
She said that the applicant is also in the process of securing an agreement from the
church and the school to the north to accommodate parking. In addition, the church is
going to be very small and therefore, it will not draw much vehicular traffic.

Dan Dillinger, 618 Leslie Street, stated that he is representing Blacksoil Church on
behalf of Jeremy Dowsett who is ill at this time. Mr. Dillinger said that the church has
been in the city for about 5 years, but they have not had a permanent home. They are
looking forward to having a permanent home and becoming more involved with the
community. He said that they rarely have more than 10 cars associated with the church
because most of their parishioners live in the area.

Tom Poel, 526 :Pack Avenue, Grand Rapids, said that Blacksoil Church is very focused
on becoming a strong presence in the neighborhood. He said that a lot of their
parishioners live in the neighborhood and walk or bike to the church which greatly
reducing the traffic and parking burden on the neighborhood. Mr. Poel distributed an
email from Pilgrim Congregational Church, located one block to the north, approving the
use of their parking lot on Saturday evenings for a ' period of six months.

Mr. Swix asked Mr. Poel if the church will be buying or leasing the building.

'Mr. Poel said that they will be buying the property.

Joan Nelson, 217 Rosamond Street, spoke in favor of the request. Ms. Nelson said
that she is the director of the Allen Neighborhood Center but at this time, she is
representing herself since the Board of Director's has not had a chance to officially
endorse this proposal. However, Blacksoil Church has partnered with the center on
many projects in the area including World Day at Hunter Park, litter pick-ups, community
gardens, helping seniors in the area with repairs, lawn mowing, etc. She said that this
church has a serious commitment to the neighborhood. They have even created a
neighborhood organization in the area. 'Ms. Nelson stated that she lives 2 blocks away
and owned the building at 230 Bingham from 1984-1994. The building was constructed
in . 1905 and has been an anchor in this neighborhood ever since. Over the past few
years it has been neglected and she is looking forward to having a owner that is
committed to the building.

Mr. Burgess asked if anyone else wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.

Mr. Burgess said that he attends a church on the corner of Prospect and Holmes Street.

Mr. Hilts said that churches and schools are good neighbors in residential areas. He said
that some of his neighbors have participated in activities at Hunter Park with Blacksoil
Church and they are becoming very hands-on in this neighborhood.

Mr. McGrain said that the practical difficult was described in the staff report. He said that
this is the only practical use for the building and he is happy to support the request.

Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes May 13, 2010 Page 3

Ms. Horne said that there have been problems with on-street parking around St. Casimer
Catholic Church. She said that vehicles block driveways and clog up the streets with
traffic and at times is has been a real problem in the neighborhood. Ms. Horne said that
she is sure that the church is doing good work in the neighborhood but feels that the
ordinance requirements should be upheld.

Mr. °Poet stated that Ms. Stachowiak has been very helpful throughout this process.

B. McGrain moved to approve BZA-3956.10 for variances to the street designation, lot size and
parking requirements. to permit a church at 230 'Bingham street, on a finding that the variances will
be consistent with the practical difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of
Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for this application. Seconded by G. `Swix.

III. HEARINGS/ACTION

A. .BZA-3954.10, 5701 S. Pennsylvania Avenue

This is a request by RC Lansing LLC on behalf of Spartan Toyota. The applicant is


requesting a variance to relocate a 30 foot high ground sign at 5701 S. Pennsylvania that
would have a setback of 22 feet, 8 inches. Section 1442.12(5) of the Sign Ordinance
requires a 30 foot setback for a 30 foot high ground sign. A variance of 7 feet, 4 inches
to the setback requirement for a ground sign is therefore, being requested. Staff
recommended approval of the request on a finding that the variance would be consistent
with the applicable practical difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria
of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for this application.

Ms. Horne asked how the proposed setback compares to the setbacks of other signs in
the area.

Ms. Stachowiak said that the proposed sign will actually be further back that the majority
of the other signs along S. Pennsylvania Avenue because of the large amount of excess
right-of-way in this area.

Jeff Keyes, Kebs, Inc. stated that they are currently in site plan review for a building
addition and site improvements at 5701 S. Pennsylvania Avenue and they would like to
do everything all at once, including relocating the sign.

Mr.Burgess asked if anyone else wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.

Ms. Horne stated that staff has adequately described the :practical difficulty. She said
that she can support the variance since it is just relocating an existing sign and the
:proposed location is consistent with the setback of other signs in the area.

E. Horne =moved to approve BZA-3954.10,±a variance of 7 feet, 4 inches to the setback requirement
for a ground -sign at 5701 S. Pennsylvania Avenue, on a finding that the variance would be

-BZA-3955..10, 829 N. Foster Avenue

This is a request by Adam Daniel . Atkinson for a variance from the height requirement for
a front yard fence at 829 N. -Foster Avenue. The applicant is proposing to construct a six
(6) foot high privacy fence in his E. Grand River Avenue front yard. Section
1292.03(a)(1) of the Zoning Code states that no fence shall exceed a height of three (3)
feet within a front yard. Therefore, a variance of three (3) feet to the height limit fora
front yard fence is being requested. Staff recommended approval of the request on a
finding that the variance would be consistent with the applicable practical difficulty
criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed
in the staff report for this application, with the following conditions:

1. The top 3 feet of the fence is visually open and designed to match the fence
located along the west property line,
2. A row of evergreen trees or shrubs be planted in front of the fence, and
3. The fence not extend into the Foster Avenue front yard of the property.

'Ms. Stachowiak stated that the applicant has some concerns about the condition
requiring that the top 3 feet of the fence be visually open. She said that the applicant has
met with the adjoining neighbor and her concerns about visibility would be satisfied if the
fence were simply moved south of the tree that is located in the northwest corner of the
lot.

Mr. Hilts asked if the fence could be used as a trellis (climbing vines) to soften the
.appearance of the fence. Ms. Stachowiak stated that this would be ideal.

Ms. Horne said that the shrubbery should be limited to 3 feet in height to prevent any
visibility issues.

Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes April 8, 2010 Page 3

Officer Adam Atkinson, 829 N. Foster Avenue, spoke in favor of his request. He said
that he has been accepted to the police K-9 unit and the purpose of the fence is to
provide a safe and secure area to.exercise and train the.K-9 dog. 'Mr. Atkinson said that
a 3 foot high fence will not hold a canine dog and the staff recommendation for keeping
the top half of the 6 foot fence open could be a real safety issue if someone were to put
their hand through the fence to touch the dog. He said that the also cannot risk the dog
;getting hurt or lost because it cost approximately $15,000 to purchase and train a canine
dog. He also said that he spoke to the neighbor directly to the "west and her concerns
about blocking visibility will be satisfied if the fence is moved south of the tree that is
located in the northwest corner of the site. The neighbor to the south is happy about the
fence because it will reduce noise and beautify the property.

Officer Gary Heckman, 87 Red . Cedar, East Lansing, said that he has been a K-9
Officer for 10 years. He said that his K-9 dog can jump over a 4 foot high fence and the
safety of :people and the dog is their top priority. These :dogs have to burn off energy
because they are work dogs. Officer Heckman said that the neighbors in this area are
excited to have a police dog nearby.

Mr. Burgess asked if anyone else wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the 'Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.

,Mr. Frederick asked what Mr. Atkinson is going to name the dog.

Mr. Atkinson said that it will either be Oro, Echo or Bono. He said that he is considering
calling him Bono in honor of the James Bonneau, the Jackson police officer that was
killed on March 9, 2010. .

Mr. Swix stated that-the fence to the west that the new fence will connect is open and
therefore, someone could stick their hand through that fence and get injured.

Mr. Atkinson said that he will have to look into completely enclosing the fence on the west
side in order to make is completely safe.

Mr. Hilts said that the "fence will provide privacy and make things a lot quieter in the
house because it will buffer the noise from all of the heavy traffic on Grand River.

Mr. Burgess said that the dog will be going to work with the officer and will therefore, not
be on the property most of the time when children are walking back and forth from
school.

Mr. Swix asked if these dogs are cross-trained.

Officer Heckman said that there is some cross-training. He said that MSU has 5 bomb
dogs and 2 drugs dogs. He said that they are all multi-trained in other areas such as.
track people down.

Ms. Horne said that she is supportive of the variance but would like there to be a
condition that the shrubs cannot exceed three feet in height.

Officer Atkinson said that he is Barberry red bushes.

Mr. Frederick stated that these types of shrubs can be toxic to dogs.

A. Frederick moved to approve BZA-3955.09, a variance of 3 feet to the height limitation for a front

yard fence at 829 N. Foster Avenue, on a finding that the variance would be consistent with the
practical difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 .(e), as
detailed in the staff report for this application, with the following conditions:

1. The fence is located south of the tree near'the'northwest corner of. the lot,

A. BZA-3951.09, 1909 W. Saginaw Street io
This is a request by Frank Delacruz for a variance to permit the sign on the roof of the
building at 1909 W. Saginaw Street (Famous Taco). Section 1442.21(f) of the City Sign
Code prohibits roof signs. Staff recommended approval of the request on a finding that
the variance would be consistent with the applicable practical difficulty criteria of Section
1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report
for this application.

Ms. Stachowiak stated that Icon Sign & Design applied fora permit to install a sign on the
building at 1909 W. Saginaw Street. The permit could not be approved because the sign
extended above the eave line, thereby making it a roof sign by Sign Code definition. The .
sign company apparently did not realize that they had to have the actual permit before
the sign could be installed. Having submitted the application, the sign company erected
the sign as it had been proposed. The City then contacted the sign company and the
applicant to inform them of the situation. They elected to apply for a variance to allow the
sign to remain as in its current location since the architecture of the building does not
provide any other options for the installing a 16" x 23' (30.6 square foot) wall sign.

Mr. Burgess asked if anyone wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.

Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes January 14 ,, 2010 Page '2

'Mr. Hilts stated that the BZA'hashad other cases of this nature where the building cannot
-accommodate ,a sign that is flat mounted against the wall of the building. He said that
even with the sign in its current location, he almost missed it as he was driving by
because it is so far back from the road.

Mr. Swix stated :that-the sign is necessary to alert motorists before they go too far and
have to slam on the brakes.

Ms. Ailing stated that the billboard and the architecture of the building make it impossible
for the applicant to do anything else with signage. She said that the building is set back
quite far from the road so it is already difficult to spot.

"Mr. McGrain stated that he supports the request. He stated that the ordinance was
intended to prevent signs that -sit on the top of the roof. This sign is located even with or
slightly below the uppermost peak of the roof.

G. Swix moved to approve 'MA-3951.09, a variance to permit the sign on the roof of the building at
1909 W. Saginaw Street (Famous Taco), on a finding that the variance would be consistent with
the ;practical difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e),

B. BZA-3952.09, 5468 S. ML Kinq

This is a. request by Haley Law Firm for a variance to construct a 135-foot high,
monopole, telecommunications tower in the rear yard at 5468 S. ML King Blyd.. Section
1248.10(a) of the Zoning Ordinance permits a maximum height of thirty-five (35) feet in
the "A" Residential District. A variance of 100 feet to the height limitation is therefore,
being requested. Staff recommended approval of the request on a finding that the
variance would be consistent with the applicable practical difficulty criteria of Section
1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report
for this application.

Ms. Stachowiak stated that a special land use permit will be required to construct the
proposed tower. There is already a "lattice tower less than 200 feet to the north and since
there has already been one other tower approved for ,construction in the area, the tower
that is the subject of this application may or may not get approved. The applicant for the

Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes January 14, 2010 Page 3

tower at 5404 S. ML King has recently submitted revised site plans and appears to be
finally making some progress towards getting the new tower erected. If the proposed
tower is to be erected, in addition to the height variance, 'the City Council will have to
authorize. exceptions to the setback and separation requirements contained in the new
ordinance. The new ordinance gives the City "Council sole authority over the setback
requirements and the required separation distances :between towers, as part of the
special land use permit process. The issues surrounding the proliferation of towers in
this area will be considered during the special land use permit process. The only issue
that needs to be , considered by the Board of Zoning Appeals is whether there is sufficient
justification to warrant approval of the height variance.

Wally Haley, Haley .Law Firm, '8065E. Grand River, Brighton, 'MI, spoke in favor of the
request. He said that the reason there are cell phone towers in residential areas is
because people are using cell phones instead of land lines in their homes. He said that
this location was selected because it is a heavily wooded and is right next to the
Consumer's Energy towers so it will blend in with the existed features in the area.

Tim Haggard, 5405 'S. ML King, stated that he represents the Pipe Fitters Union where
the Vertical Properties tower is to be built. He said that the tower will get built and has
only been delayed due to some Board of Water and Light issues with supplying power to
the tower. 'Mr. Haggard said that the tower will get built this summer.

Mr. Burgess asked if anyone else wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.

Mr. McGrain asked about the height.

Ms.'Stachowiak said that all of the towers in the city are between 120-150 feet high. She
said under the new ordinance, the City Council deals with all issues, except height.

Mr. Swix asked if the Council can still approve or deny the tower, regardless of the height
variance.

Ms. Stachowiak said that the variance is irrelevant if the Council does not approve the
Special Lane Use.permit.

Mr. Frederick stated that the cell phone towers have an inherent practical difficulty in
meeting the height limitation in residential districts.

A. Frederick moved to approve BZA-3952.09, a variance of 100 feet to the height limitation to
construct a 135-foot high, monopole, telecommunications tower in the rear yard at 5468 S. ML
King, on a finding that the variance would be consistent with the practical difficulty criteria of
Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for
this application, with the following conditions:

1. The tower shall be "monopole" type.. '


2. The proposed monopole tower provide for a co-location of at least 3
antennas.
3. The tower shall not interfere with telemetry communications of local
hospitals and emergency services.
4. Landscaping be added around the base of the tower to buffer the view of the
base from surrounding properties.

5. The tower be appropriately accessible and fenced for security, without the use of
barbed wire.

C. BZA-3953.09, 4615 Tranter Street

This is a request by Haley Law Firm fora variance to construct a 145-foot high,
monopole, telecommunications tower in the rear yard at 4615 Tranter Street. Section
1274.09 of the Zoning Ordinance permits a maximum height of 120 feet in the "H" Light
Industrial District. A variance of 25 feet to the height limitation is therefore, being
requested. Staff recommended approval of the request on a finding that the variance
would be consistent with the applicable practical difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c)
and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for this
application.

There is an existing 145 foot tall, lattice telecommunications tower located just south of
the building at 4615 Tranter Street. CATA has purchased property to the south and is
proposing to expand the building which will necessitate removal of the existing tower.
The new cell tower ordinance encourages the removal of lattice towers and even allows
them to be reconstructed as monopole towers without having to obtain a special land use
permit or variance, as long as the tower is only moved 50 feet from its existing location.
In this case, the tower will be moved 517 feet to the northeast of its current location in
order to get it further away from the residential neighborhood to the west and to get it out
of the way of any future development plans for the CATA operations. The new tower will
allow for co-locations and will therefore, serve the needs of various carriers that need to
obtain additional coverage.

Thomas Hamlin, 4621 Devonshire Drive, asked if the tower is for the CATA operations
or for cellular communications.

Ms. Stachowiak stated that it is for both. She said that it replaces the existing CATA
tower but will be able to accommodate cellular antennas as well.

Mr. Burgess asked if anyone else wished to address the Board. Seeing none, the Board
moved into the Committee of the Whole.

Mr. Swix asked why .this tower is 145 feet high instead of 135 feet high like the one on
MLK.

Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes January 14, 2010 -Page 5

Ms. 'Stachowiak said that the existing tower is 145 feet and this is just a replacement.

B. McGrain moved to approve BZA-3953.09, a variance of 25 feet to the height limitation to


construct a 145-foot high, monopole, telecommunications tower in the rear yard at 4615 Tranter
Street, on a finding that the variance would 'be consistent with the practical difficulty criteria of
Section 1244:06 ;(c)andthe impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e), as detailed in the staff report for

1. The tower shall be "monopole"type.

Mr. McGrain made a motion, seconded by Ms. Ailing, to remove BZA 3948.09 from
the table. On a voice vote (6-0), the motion carried unanimously.

Ms. Stachowiak said that since this case was originally heard by the BZA, the applicant
has supplied additional information to show that there is a grade change that warrants
relief from the ordinance. She said that the photograph that she distributed illustrates this
by showing how much that the house is higher than the fence.

Mr. Frederick asked how the height of a fence is determined.


Board of Zoning Appeals Minutes January 14, 2010 "Page 6

Ms. Stachowiak said that it is measured at the grade where the fence is located to the top
of the fence..

Mr.Burgess said that the request could be approved as it is consistent with the intent of
the ordinance. He said that it does not create a "wall" affect which is what the ordinance
is intended to prevent.

Mr. 'Frederick said that addressing line of site issues is a slippery slope when considering
variances.

Mr. Hilts said that he walked around the area. He said that Lansing is predominantly flat
and therefore, the ordinance does not address situations where there is a lot of grade
changes. He said that this is one area where the topography of the land is irregular and
these unique situations are what variances are intended for. Mr. ;Hilts said that the fence
does not have a "stockade" appearance and it is only visible to one or two neighbors and
they are supportive of the fence.

. Mr. McGrain said that approval of the variance would be consistent with the spirit of the
ordinance. He said that it is not a stockade fence, it is not in the front yard and there is a
practical difficulty involving the grade change on the lot.

William Guerin, 1700 Lindbergh Drive, spoke in support of his request. He stated that
his neighbors spoke in favor of the fence. He said his neighbor is a contractor and often
works in his garage and the fence provides privacy and acts as a sound barrier so he can
still enjoy his back yard.

G. Swix moved to approve BZA-3948.09, a variance of .8 feet to 1.8 feet to the height limitation for
a rear yard fence at 1700 Lindbergh Drive, on a finding that the variance would be consistent with
the practical 'difficulty criteria of Section 1244.06 (c) and the impact criteria of Section 1244.06 (e),
as detailed in the staff report for this application. Seconded by G. Hilts.

STATEMENT OF CITIZENS ^=

Bob Every, Lansing Community College head coach, stated LCC has partnered with the City P La' , ing-ahd
use Ranney Ballpark to play college women's softball games. He spends the summer watchikg kids'
tournaments throughout the Lansing area and decided a couple of years ago to upgrade the park. LLast year it
won the National Junior College Field of the Year and only one field is selected. He is very proud of this
achievement and the support received from the Parks Department. They are getting more people who want to
use the field and they want to keep the park pristine. However, the skateboarders are spilling over from the
skate park and using the new bleachers for their skate boarding and they do not always leave when asked.
Last week they witnessed what they believe to be homeless people, dismantling the aluminum support beams
under the bleachers, that were just put in a couple of years ago, and taking the aluminum.

This area needs to be cordoned off with an 8 foot fence. He believes this would cut down on the theft and
vandalism of the bleachers and deter the kids from the skate park damaging the bleachers with their skate
boards. He does a lot of work on the field and would like to keep it looking nice and wants to appeal to city
government to cordon off that area and control the flow of traffic that goes in and out of the area

Rick Kibbey thanked the coaches and volunteers for their input on the planning process to create such a great
facility.

Murdock Jemerson stated Marty Riel, the City's property maintenance manager, has looked at the bleachers,
the missing parts and will have staff "ping" the bolts to prevent the removal of the support straps. Marty Riel
will offer suggestions to protect the bleachers from the skateboarders.

BOARD MINUTES

Due to lack of quorum, the September minutes were tabled until the December Park Board meeting.

NEW BUSINESS
Blue Star Memorial Maker

Marilyn Lee, Garden Club of Greater Lansing, provided example photos of memorials and reviewed the letter
she submitted to Mr. Jemerson on behalf of the Garden Club regarding the Blue Star Memorial Marker. In May
the Garden Club of Greater Lansing decided it was time for the capital city to honor veterans. The National
Garden Club has had a program since 1945 when it decided to honor WWII veterans. This program has
changed over

Lansinq Park Board Minutes - November 10, 2010 Paqe 2

time; in 1951=theState `Legislature approved a;program where the Highway Department could establish these
memorials. "More recently, Michigan in 1996, decided these memorial markers could go beyond the 'highways
to any city location.

These markers must be sponsored by a garden club and receive approval from the Michigan Garden Club and
National Garden 'Club. Anyone may cooperate with the garden club to establish these markers. The Lansing
Garden Club was pleased with the path` at Frances; Park and feel that Frances Park would be a wonderful
place for the memorial marker. The Garden Club .met with the Friends of Frances and they were enthusiastic.
The Garden ,Club will work with Mr. Jemerson to select the appropriate location for the marker. This is not a
costly; program, but is a living memorial to pay tribute to our armed forces. The marker must'be shipped to a
commercial si.tedue;to the size of the .marker. The Garden Club is asking the city to help install the marker
and the 'Garden Club wants to work with the Parks Department to plan the garden around the marker: The
Garden Club has budgeted approximately $2,000 for the project. This memorial is not for one individual, but
maybe at alater date the subject of purchasing paver bricks could be discussed.

The Garden Club will cover a portion of the marker and possibly the Friends of Frances, but hopefully others
would assist with donations of food and items for the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony. The plan is also
to get youth involved in the garden project and Gardner School has shown an interest. This is a planned Fall
2011 project.

Ron Theisen, Friends of Frances Park, said the 'Friends are in agreement with the project and the possible
sight of the location, which would be an area in front of the pavilion. Murdock Jemerson stated he has no
issues with the marker.

Rick Kibbey stated there is no objection from the Board members present and the board will turn further
discussion and the meetings over to Murdock Jemerson.

Fenner Nature Center

Jason Meyer, Executive Director Fenner Nature Center, stated since May the Friends of Fenner has secured a
grant for additional tables and chairs for Fenner, along with support funding from the City. The Dart
Foundation provided a $5,000 grant which allowed Fenner to purchase state of the art equipment for children
to study the forest as a real forester would. There were 6,500 visitors to Fenner in October with between 4,000
to 5,000 visitors at Apple Butter and between 800-900 people at Candyland. Winter is a slower time at the
center and staff will use the opportunity to work on funding alternatives. The partnership with the city has been
extended for another 4 years and has been fantastic.

UPDATES

Maguire Park

There was a pre-construction meeting yesterday and the installation of the pavilion will start next week. The
construction company is the same one who installed the pavilion at Hunter Park. Joe Maguire is pleased with
the progress and is excited about the arch. There will be an official ribbon cutting ceremony in the spring.

Turner Dodge

Paving of the service road should be done today.

Cavanauqh Park

This is a park with a dedicated group of citizen's trying to bring their park back. They have landscapers who
have assisted with re-establishing Bunker Hill sledding hill.
;LansingaParkBoard:Minutes-:November10, 2010 Page 3

;Attwood Park

Murdock Jemerson met the residents of Village Cooperative regarding Attwood Park and there were about 30
to 40 people at the meeting. They want to take their park back and do a master plan. There will 'be additional
meetings to begin this process. The residents would like a concert at Attwood Park.

Leisure Services Report

Brett=Kaschinske has been asked to report at the December meeting on the busing issues from Kids Camp
summer 2010 and 'possible solutions. This report will also include the status of the division, new staff, staff
relocations, etc.

Additional Board Comments

Rick Kibbey stated in the new citywide master plan that is being done, "green" (open space) is in the middle of
a lot of the, issues and the question of how this "green" is going to be managed is not addressed. Between the
land that is existing park way and the vacant land that is being created by the Land Bank and vacant land
created by water related issues, if this Board has any task at all it is to figure out if that park land is to be
managed as a natural resource or as a park way.

Luke Canfora inquired if this relates , back to the metrics and Kibbey stated yes because in the final analysis it
all comes back to staff and budget. Canfora stated the Board has not seen a true to life metric on how our stuff
is being taken care of.

Rick Kibbey suggested a board committee to review the metrics and prepare a letter requesting a report that
actually responds to the metrics submitted and how they are being meta Kibbey stated he will start a
committee to create a letter.

Luke Canfora stated after the election this year proved what is important to the citizens and it is parks and we
can't let anything slip on the side of what people like.

NEW BUSINESS

Kids Camp

Brett Kaschinske, Manager of Leisure Services, reviewed the changes to the summer kids' camp program.
This year we received more compliments than ever before, camps were licensed with the State of Michigan,
provided before and after camp care at all sites, camps ran Monday through Friday, bussing was provided from
17 locations, breakfast and lunch were offered at all locations, not just the community centers as in the past,
fees were charged for before and after care as well as day camp and the number of sites were reduced from
18 to 8.

There were 774 youth enrolled this year compared to 1468 last year. However, this year with the licensing we
were restricted to a 10 to 1 ratio and had 8 sites this year instead of 18 like last year. There were 47 students
registered for riding the bus, however there was a high no show rate for the busses. For the first time there was
a fee for the kids camp, as well as for the before care and after care which generated $54,330 in revenue.

.On-line evaluations were sent out to parents and the results were as follows: 96% stated the camp met their
needs with 82% rating the camp above average or excellent; 92% rated staff above average or excellent; 90%
would recommend the camp to others; 63% were willing to pay more for the services; and 92% were
comfortable with the new site requirements.

Moores pool attendance for the summer was 7,559 and Hunter pool was 18,404.

The Concerts in the Park offered a new location this year at Grand River Park, which was well received by
participants. Surveys were provided to concert participants and 100% believe the concerts help promote the

.LANSING PARK BOARD MINUTES - SEPTEMBER-8, 2010 :PAGE 2

community and are grateful for the sponsor support and will return next year; 76% were Lansing residents and
the 2010 attendance was '8,095. The goal is to offer a variety of music at various parks throughout the city.

Adult sport teams for summer and fall have 43 men's, 10 women's and co-ed softball has 103. Senior softball
is 'down, but they are coming back from Delhi Township. 'Men's baseball has 22 teams with a combination of
18 and over, 30 and over, 40 ,and over.

Leisure Services has an e-marketing campaign which includes EMMA an e-newsletter, :Facebook, RecTrac on-
line registration and we are working on web videos.

'Rick Kibbey stated he followed Baker Donora over the summer and they had issues with the bus driver who
'was crabby and did not show up on time and he would 'like to see this issue rectified. He also would like to
have this type of report each summer.

Moores Pool

Murdock Jemerson provided a estimate from B&B Pools regarding the pool at Moores Park. The Moores Park
pool had a filter quit working this summer and the estimate if $94,500. The recommendation is to convert the
current out-dated filter systems and go to horizontal filter tanks. Jemerson inquired if this is the time to look at
this pool and do something similar to what was done at Hunter. This is a historic pool and it would be nice to
maintain it, but also improve it with additions and could we save up CIP money over a couple of years and then
make the improvements.

Pat Murray stated clearly the attendance numbers indicate Hunter has more to offer. The neighborhood is
proud of Moores pool and it would be hard to dispute improvements and "fun" additions to the pool.

Murdock Jemerson inquired about closing Moores pool for 2-3 budget seasons to save funds for new features
for the pool.

Dusty Fancher stated she wants to have the neighborhood and neighborhood association's input.

Rick Kibbey commented. that Hunter Park was successful before the pool. upgrades due to the walking trail,
greenhouse and pavilion and a park can be a revitalization engine for a neighborhood.

Murdock Jemerson stated he would take the recommendation, communicate and work with the neighborhood.
He would like to attend the next meeting of the Moores Park Neighborhood Association.

Rick Kibbey recommended the October Park ' Board meeting be held in conjunction with the Moores Park
Neighborhood Association meeting on October 13 at Shabazz Academy.

BoardMember Update,

Rick Kibbey advised the board members that Cynthia Ward has regretfully resigned from the Park Board.
There has not been anything officially announced, but she may be being considered for another board.

Park Millage

Murdock Jemerson provided a print out of the election results from the . City Clerk's office, which indicated a
73% approval rate and no precinct reporting anything lower than 60.1%.

Soldan Dog Park

Murdock Jemerson provided copies of the handout that is available at the dog park regarding the new fee that
was reported on in the Lansing State Journal. Effective November 1, 2010 there will be a charge for the dog
'LANSING -PARK'BOARD .MINUTES - SEPTEMBER 8, 2010 ', PAGE 3

park, which was a decision by the Friends of Greater Lansing Dog Park (FGLDP), but the city and county will
be administering the program. This will be a'key-fob system which is an ,electronic gate and will only allow
someone in with the key fob. There will be an annual fee of $40, which will go toward regular maintenance
including dog waste bags, port-a johnrentals, capital improvements' for the park such as fence repair, erosion
control, etc. and membership to 'FGLDP. The article did not clarify that this is a initiative of the FGLDP and not
the city or the county. The FGLPD group was adamant that they needed some type of control in place to
manage the dog park. This system allows them to register the owners and the dogs; which will ensure the
dogs-are current on vaccinations and provide the ability to locate trouble dogs.

Dusty Fancher inquired if there is a report generated on how many times an individual uses the park.
Jemerson stated yes. Fancher also inquired 'how many passes are anticipated to be sold. Jemerson stated
there are easily 50 to 100 dogs :in .the park a'day. 'Fancher inquired if the money is going to the FGLDP and
how is this going to work. Jemerson replied the' FGLDP Will take the money and put it back into the park.
'Fancher stated she would like to know where the accountability is.

Rick Kibbey stated if he recalls they are a 501c3, which means they are required to file an annual report.

Luke Canfora inquired who the payments are going to. Jemerson stated the payments are going to the county.

Rick Kibbey inquired if the issues with the neighbors have been resolved.. Jemerson stated he has not heard
anything from the neighbors since the closure of the one area of the park.

Brad Vauter stated he was the attorney who donated his time and assisted with the legalities of setting up the
dog park, getting their 501 c3 application and helped with some of the initial donations. He is troubled by the
fact that this is a city park and it should be a decision of the city regarding fees based on a recommendation
from the FGLDP. and not a FGLDP decision. Also, no word of this was mentioned during the successful
campaign to raise money for capitol improvements and the FGLDP may use money for other things because in
the 501 c3 any charitable purpose, particularly related to a dog park, can use money toward other
developments. The FGLDP raised in excess of $120,000 (almost $200,000), which includes the Soldan's
pledge of $50,000 over ten years, which is more than most park groups have raised for a dedicated park and '
now they are saying they need to charge people to get in. Vauter stated when he did the initial work this was
going to be a free dog park and be part of an array of parks the city had and to now say it is going to be $40
with a discount student rate. This seems unfair and even if the FGLDP this is because of bad dogs, dogs are
suppose to be licensed with the county no matter if the dogs are in the park or not. If the $40 is to keep out
certain individuals, there is no guarantee that someone will not let others use the key-fob to get into the park.
Vauter stated he has problems with the city allowing a non-profit group to dictate fees for a park that was
suppose to free and this seems like a stab in the back to individuals who raised money for this park and also
after the park millage has been passed.

Murdock Jemerson stated due to budgetary reasons groups are running facilities, for example the Friends of
Fenner have.a formalized agreement with the city to run Fenner; the Friends of Turner Dodge help run Turner
Dodge, as well as the Allen Neighborhood running the greenhouse. This is similar because the FGLDP are the
first management for the operation of the dog park. The city and the county have an agreement where the .
county operates Scott Woods Park and maintains the dog park. We look to the FGLDP to assist with
management of the park and this is a best practice they brought to the city and is patterned after a park in Ann
Arbor. This is also a control measure for those who may not have a dog licensed and are not following the
rules and we were encouraged by the FGLDP to work on a system that will aid the city and county in making
sure the dog owners in the park will up hold the rules and regulations of the park.

Rick Kibbey stated the task this evening is not to make a determination or investigation, but he encouraged Mr.
Vauter to meet with Murdock Jemerson to continue the discussion and if it requires additional intervention from
the Board to bring the issue back to the Park Board.
LANSING PARK BOARD MINUTES - SEPTEMBER 8, 2010 PAGE 4

;Basketball Complex

'Murdock Jemerson;provided a preliminary sketch and stated staff met regarding the basketball complex and
would like to recommend Davis Park along Pleasant Grove for this project since there are only a 'few
residential' homes in the area. The site would be programmed and it would have set hours and be locked when
not in operation.

RickKibbey requested this be brought to the neighborhood groups, Kathie Dunbar and Lansing Police
because basketball courts are difficult to control.

Brett 'Kaschinske stated he is looking at bringing someone on to program the site and would talk with LPD
about installing cameras.

Performance Metrics

Chad Gamble, Public Service Director, provided a draft schedule of plowing and salting for city streets, parking
lots and parks. The recent consolidation of Public Service and Parks Forestry/Grounds is to put 95% of public
property maintenance together.

The core supervisors met and the responsibilities were discussed about what metrics need to be met for the
public and this is the beginning communication device to accomplish what needs to be done.

Chad Gamble reviewed the plow and salt chart which listed the parking areas, sidewalks and trails and the
time line in which they would be plowed, the type of service received and the location that would receive it and
the time in which it would be done.

Phil Mannino stated the plowing of cemeteries indicated it would be done within 24 hours. If there is
substantial snow on Friday evening and a funeral on Saturday, people would not be able to get into the '
cemetery. Chad Gamble stated exceptions would be made. Mannino also stated outlying lots may need to be
looked at. For example the city lot behind Emil's restaurant which would be used on the weekends and
evenings by restaurant patrons. Washington Mall has a down slope toward the curb and on weekends cars
will get stuck.

Chad Gamble indicated there is a plan to cross train between Public Service employees and Grounds/Forestry
employees to provide efficient service and assist each other during with emergencies.

Meeting adjourned at 9:00 p.m.

Rezoning from "B" Residential District to "D-1" Professional Office District

Dear Mayor Bernero:

The Lansing Planning Board, at a special meeting held on December 13, 2010, voted (5-0) to
recommend approval of the request by RKH Investments, LLC to rezone the property at 934 Clark
Street and the vacant lot to the north from "B" Residential District to "D-1" Professional Office
District. The intent of the rezoning is to allow the building at 934 Clark Street to be renovated for
use as an office building.

At the Planning Board public hearing held on December 7, 2010, the applicant spoke in favor of the
request and two area residents expressed concerns about certain uses that may be permitted under the
"D-1" Professional Office district. In response to these concerns, the applicant has requested, in
writing, that this case be considered under the following conditions:

(1) Substance abuse treatment and testing centers, including inpatient and outpatient
rehabilitation centers for drug and alcohol addictions are prohibited;

(2) Parole, probation, ex-offender and juvenile offender housing, monitoring and
rehabilitation facilities are prohibited;

(3) Marijuana dispensaries and growing/storage facilities are prohibited;

(4) Homeless shelters/temporary housing for the homeless are prohibited;

(5) Boarding, lodging and halfway houses are prohibited.

The Planning Board found, based on testimony, evidence and the staff report, that with the
proposed conditions, the "D-1" Professional Office district would be compatible with the
surrounding residential neighborhood. The board also found that the rezoning would not create
any adverse impacts on traffic, the environment or future patterns of development in the area.

Following your review of this matter, please refer it to the City Council for its consideration.

ANALYSIS

Z-10-2010 934 Clark Street Page 3

COMPATIBILITYWITH SURROUNDINGLANDUSE

The subject property is in an area that is exclusively zoned "B" Residential. Therefore, rezoning
the property to "D-1" Professional Office district will result in a "spot zone" which is typically
considered to be an unacceptable planning practice. In this case, however, there is already a
nonresidential building at this location and without a rezoning it will be rendered virtually
unusable. Under the "B" Residential zoning, the only use allowed by right is a single family
residence. Since the building contains 6,920 square feet of floor area, a single family residence
is not a viable option. The "D-1" Professional Office district permits the following uses:

D-1 Professional Office District

Permitted by Right Special Conditions Special Land Use Permit

a Office (civic, professional, • One permanent sign • Church


religious, charity) a Funeral home a Gov structure

• Office (accountant, a Clinic a Public utility

architect, artist, attorney, • Residential use (DM-l) a Private club


doctor, dentist) ❑Planned development a Trade associations

• Accessory structure a Functional family a Off-street parking lot


a Insurance agency
a Hospital a Research and development
a Real estate office
a Convalescent care lab
❑Trade association • 1+ structure for multi- • Barber shop
a Public park
dwellings • Planned neighborhood
a Office (non-sales or a Church convenience store
storage) a One-family dwelling a Emergency service

• Bank/C.U./S&L a Two-family dwelling


a Temporary structure

• Home occupation
❑Temporary BB or sign
a Educational facility

❑Child Care Facility (13+)


❑Golf course
a Gov outdoor pool

• Gov indoor pool


a Gov library/museum

The majority of the uses listed above would be compatible with the surrounding residential
neighborhood since they typically generate a low volume of traffic and do not create much noise
or other nuisances. However, some of the uses that would generate a high volume of traffic such
as a bank, funeral home, clinic, barber shop, etc. could be disruptive to the peaceful enjoyment of
the area. The applicant could satisfy this concern by agreeing to a conditional zoning whereby
the uses of the site would be limited to office uses only.

Z-10-2010 934 Clark Street Page 4

COMPLIANCEWITHMASTER PLAN

Since the Northeast Area Plan designates the subject property for low density residential use, the
rezoning is not in compliance with the master plan. However, the nonresidential building at this
location already exists and the "D-1" Professional Office district is the least intensive
nonresidential zoning designation in the current zoning ordinance. The intent of the rezoning is
simply to allow the building at 934 Clark Street to be rehabilitated so that it can be reused for
office purposes. Therefore, although the rezoning does not comply with the specific designation
of the Northeast Area Plan, it is consistent with one of its primary goals which is to protect and
preserve residential neighborhoods by allowing uses that will not negatively impact the quality
of life for the residents. The subject property, in its current state, detracts rather than contributes
to the neighborhood. The building is vacant and unattractive, the parking area is unimproved
and the site is a target for trespassing and vandalism. The rezoning will allow the applicant to
improve the building/site which will have a positive impact on the area, as long as the uses are
limited to those which do not generate a high volume of traffic in the neighborhood.

IMPACT ONVEHICULARAND PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC

As long as the use of the building is limited to business offices, no negative impacts on vehicular
or pedestrian traffic are anticipated to result from this rezoning. Clark Street is designated and
constructed as a local street that is designed to carry a relatively light volume of traffic. The
traffic generated by most office uses is minimal and is typically concentrated to day time or early
evening hours and is therefore, not likely to become a burden on the residential neighborhood.

IMPACT ONPUBLICFACILITIES:

All utilities and other public services are available to the subject property.

ENVIRONMENTALIMPACT:

No negative environmental impacts are anticipated to result from the proposed rezoning. The
types of uses permitted in the "D-l" Professional Office district are typically low impact uses
that do not generate much traffic, noise and other potential nuisances. In terms of the physical
environment, the only significant change to the site will be the reconstruction and expansion of
the parking lot. Site plan review and approval will be required for the parking lot, during which
drainage and landscaping/buffering will be addressed.

IMPACTONFUTURE PATTERNS OFDEVELOPMENT

The area surrounding the subject property is entirely residential. The only reason that staff is
supportive of this request is because the nonr esidential building at 934 Clark Street already exists
and the purpose of the rezoning is simply to allow its reuse and rehabilitation. In fact, with the
exception of reconstructing and expanding the parking lot, the site will remain virtually
unchanged.

The Lansing Planning Board will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, December 7, 2010 at 6:30 p.m., main
level, Fire Station #1, Community Room, 120 E Shiawassee Street, Lansing, Michigan. This is a request
by RKH Investments, LLC. To rezone the property at 934 Clark Street, more specifically described as:

Z-10-2010, 934 Clark Street.


"B" Residential District to "D-1" Professional Office District
Lots 9, 10 & 11 Assessors Plat No21, City of Lansing

The purpose of the rezoning is to allow the building at this location to be used for offices.

The residents of Clark Street have conditions upon which this rezoning would not be permitted they are as
follows:

places where people congregate (i. e. Church).

The potential impacts on the surrounding area, including but not limited to the absolute
certainty the specific use(s), traffic, erosion, land values and the compatibility of land use
activities.

The residents of Clark Street would benefit .and any detriments of proposed rezoning to the area or
neighborhood would negate any proposed rezoning.

Subject: Intent to collect one hundred percent (100%) 2011 Summer Tax Collection

Dear Mr. Swope:

This is to notify you that it is the intent of the Ingham Intermediate School District Board of
Education to collect 100% of 2011 summer taxes. Enclosed is the related Board of Education
resolution.

1. Ingham Intermediate School District intends to collect 100% of 2011 summer taxes in
parallel with its constituent local districts that collect 50% or 100% of their tax levy in the
summer. If the local district is collecting, we will also collect. If not, we will not.
Therefore, even though we are required by law to contact all the taxing authorities within
our boundaries, if a similar request (to collect either 50% or 100% summer tax levy) has
not been received from the local school district before January 1, 2011, you may ignore the
enclosed resolution.

2. It has been past practice for the township/city and the local school district(s) to negotiate
the collection fee, if any. The intermediate school district will pay a prorated share of that
fee calculated to the nearest whole percent based on the proportion of total school millage
levied. The local and intermediate districts' shares of the cost should be billed to each
separately.

I have been designated to coordinate 2011 summer tax collection on behalf of Ingham Intermediate
School District . If you have any questions, please contact me at (517) 244-1237. Thank you.

Director of Finance

The following preamble and resolution were offered by Member RudolphWilson and

township. in which it is located to agree to collect the summer tax levy in that year of either the
total or one-half ('/2) of school property taxes; and

WHEREAS, this Board of Education has determined that it would be in the best interest of this
intermediate school district to impose a summer property tax levy to collect one hundred percent
(100%) of school property taxes; and

WHEREAS, said Act 333 provides for certain procedural steps to be taken by this Board of
Education in connection with the imposition of a summer property tax levy and also provides for
the manner in which summer property tax levy shall be collected.

1. This Board of Education pursuant to 1982 PA 333, hereby imposes a summer.


property tax levy of one hundred percent (100%) of school property taxes, upon property located

The Secretary of this Board of Education is authorized and directed to forward a


copy of this resolution to the governing body of each city and/or township in which this district
is located, together with this Board of Education's request that each such city and/or township
agree to collect the summer tax levy for the ensuing year in the amount specified in this
resolution. Such annual forwarding of this resolution and the request to collect the summer tax
levy shall be sent so that they are received by the appropriate governing bodies before January 1,

Dear Chris:

Please include this letter and a copy of A'Lynne Robinson's letter regarding my appeal of the City's denial of
my Freedom of Information Act request and a copy of the City of Lansing's Third Quarter Diversity Spending
Report from April, 2006. Please put these items on next week's City Council agenda, so they will become a part
of the public record and proof of the City's former ability to generate reports of total dollars spent on goods
and services with dollar amounts for each vendor or supplier, and broken down by race, gender and Lansing or
non-Lansing-based.

It is unacceptable for a City that has spent hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars upgrading
computer systems to not be able to disaggregate data to determine the total amount spent annually on goods
and services. After all, each City department has fund accounting codes to delineate expenditures for salaries,
fringe benefits, and all other costs, including goods and services.

Thank you for your cooperation in these matters. It is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Enclosures

Re: Appeal for Freedom of Information Act Request

Dear Mr. Pollard:

This is to acknowledge receipt of your appeal stemming from the November 16, 2010 denial
of your November 8, 2010 Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA") request. After a thorough review
and careful consideration of your appeal request, it is my decision as the "Head of the Public Body"
to uphold the denial for the same reasons as previously outlined to you-in the original November 16,
2010 denial response letter.

The Michigan Freedom of Information Act, MCL 15.231, et. seq., is to "provide for public
access to certain public records. of public bodies...." However, when the documents are not in the
possession of a public body, as the term is defined in the FOIA act, I do not possess the authority to
order the production or release of the documents. After consultation with the Finance Department,
your request for documents regarding "total dollars spent on goods and services" cannot be produced
because the City does not separate those expenditures from other expenditures. As for the balance of
your request, the City does not track total dollars spent on minorities, businesses owned by persons
with disabilities, woman, Lansing based, etc.

Therefore, based upon my further review of the denial and Michigan law, I believe that the
denial should be affirmed.

If you choose to pursue this denial through the Circuit Court and the Court determines that
records have been arbitrarily and capriciously denied, it may award actual or compensatory damages,
punitive damages (in the amount of $500.00), reasonable attorney fees, costs, and disbursements.

DATE: April 18 2006

SUBJECT: FY2006 Diversity Spending Report, Third Quarter

Attached you will find the supplier diversity spending reports for the third quarter of
FY2006 reflecting dollars spent with identified minority- and woman-owned firms. The
information in each of the sub-reports is cumulative for the fiscal year.

The first report reflects payments from the City's accounts payable system. The totals do
not reflect outstanding purchase orders, pending payments or monies spent through Human
Relations and Community Services grants/programs. Payments are classified by ethnic type,
majority female fines and a total for majority/unidentified vendors. The majority/unidentified
monies include payments made to majority male-owned firms, corporations and other
organizations with multiple owners. In addition, this category includes payments to minority or
women-owned firms who have not been identified by the City or have elected not be classified as
a diverse firm.

All the vendor payment reports show spending with diverse-owned and woman-owned
firms by diversity type and location by zip code. The Lansing Zip Code report reflects firms in
the 48901 to 48917 zip codes. We have included some firms from the 48917 in the "Not
Lansing" list based on their physical address.

The second report reflects payments made to minority-owned and/or women-owned


firms outside the purchasing ordinance. This report is included toshow opportunities for
supplier diversity outside the scope of purchasing.

The third report reflects minority-owned and women-owned firm participation in the
quote/bid process.

If you have any questions regarding any of the reports, please let me know.
