Assessment hearing, variance appeal on council agenda

A series of assessment hearings are planned during Monday’s Worthington City Council meeting.

Proposed assessments include:

  • 2023 miscellaneous unpaid charges (removal of ice and snow, and removal of noxious weed and vegetation), 5.5%, one year

  • Paving improvement No. 119: 2022 bituminous pavement improvements, 5.5%, 15 years

  • Paving improvement No. 116: Cherrywood Lane (the entire length), 5.5%, 15 years

  • Storm sewer improvement No. 32: Cherrywood Addition, 5.5%, 15 years

  • Paving Improvement No. 118: HOMEWOOD HILLS 5.5%, 15 years

Also Monday, council members will hear an appeal of a variance decision made this past Tuesday by the Worthington Planning Commission. The commission, serving as the Board of Zoning Appeals, considered a variance application submitted by JB Brooke Properties for property located at 1260 27th St. The applicant had sought approval of a variance to allow for a staircase and landing to extend 3 feet 8 inches into the required 10-foot side setback.

After a public hearing and discussion, the Board of Zoning Appeals unanimously denied the request. Their denial was based primarily on their belief that the property was not unique based on the state’s three-factor test for practical difficulties.

The board is also expected to consider the lone bid submitted for a planned Center for Active Living improvement project that came in at approximately 40% over the estimated cost.
