Board of Adjustment approves variances
NEW ULM – The Brown County Board of Adjustment unanimously approved two variance applications Wednesday and David and Jeanne Wass, Section 19, Milford Township and Darin and Shelly Tweit, Section 14, Albin Township.
The Wasses sought a variance to allow an increase in accessory structure size from the maximum allowed of 900 square feet to 2,645 square feet for construction of a 10×240-foot addition to an existing 2,403-square foot accessory structure in the R-1 (Rural Residential Zoning District).
A retired 3M toolmaker, Wass said he applied for the variance to build an addition to house his lathe and mill. He said the new addition will follow the roof line of a larger existing building.
The Tweits sought a variance to reduce the front yard setback from the required 110 feet to 100 feet from the centerline of a township road to allow construction of a 62×58-foot home and 36×40-foot detached garage in the A-1/S-1 Agricultural & Shoreland Protection Zoning District.
