for the purpose of hearing the following appeal.
THIS MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE SECOND FLOOR CONFERENCE
ROOM AT THE BETHLEHEM PUBLIC LIBRARY
11 W. CHURCH STREET
1838 Center St. (Center St. and Dewberry Ave.)
Appeal of Bethlehem Manor Village LLC for a use variance to construct three (3) 44’ tall apartment buildings, totaling 96 dwelling units, in an Institutional Zoning District; this is a prohibited use. The applicant’s site plan indicates that 25 dwelling units per acre are permitted, however this is based on the # of beds in the previously-approved 125 bed Personal Care Facility conditionally approved by the City Planning Commission in November 2008. The applicant is challenging the Zoning Officer’s determination that a 49’ front yard setback is required for Multiple Family Dwelling structures, and in the alternative is requesting a dimensional variance of 29’ on both Center Street and Dewberry Avenue to allow a 20’ front yard. [Articles 1302.53(b), 1309.02 (a), 1322.04(f)(7)(I), 1325.06].
