Zone hearing board

The Schuylkill County Zoning Hearing Board handed down decisions from hearings held last month.

Kurt R. and Marsha L. Hepler, as trustees of the Hepler Family Trust, were granted a special exception to the Schuylkill County Zoning Ordinance to allow their single family residence at 493 Hill Road, Barry Township, to be used as a personal care home for eight elderly people. Opposition was voiced at the meeting by several neighbors claiming increased traffic in the farming area and depletion of well water supply.

Dean R. Nicholas, 216 W. Laurel St., Tremont, was granted a dimensional variance to the county zoning ordinance to allow him to construct a roof over two off-street parking spaces on an existing concrete pad, creating a carport and roof overhand at the property line within the side setback area.
