The Orono City Council will hold a public hearing in the Orono Council Chambers at 2780 Kelley Parkway on Monday, January 9, 2017, beginning at 7:00 p.m. on the matter of reviewing the following land use application:

16-3885 Hans & Sharon Bergh, 2800 Shadywood Road, request approval of the following variances in conjunction with redevelopment of the property:

1. A 75-foot lake setback variance from the channel and a rear setback variance in order to reconstruct a detached garage 24.3 from the rear and 40.9 from the channel in a slightly smaller footprint with an upward expansion because the garage will be elevated 6 on fill to comply with the 100-year floodplain rules combined with a proposed 3.5 increase in roof height resulting in a peak height of 17 8 where 14 2 currently exists;

2. A garage size variance to allow the existing 1,080 square foot nonconforming garage to be reconstructed and expanded in height with a 1,056 square foot footprint; and

3. A variance to construct a new residence partially elevated on fill material which does not conform to the requirement that such fill material extend 15-feet from the structure on the north east side of the home.
