In the interest of being inclusive on our variance requests, the board met and discussed at length our need to communicate with the neighbors. We are asking our members to read this policy . We want your input, before we vote.
Schumacher Place Civic Association zoning variance request policy:
SPCA represents the interests of all residents within it’s civic boundaries when hearing variance requests.
SPCA encourages all applicants for variances to present their plans to the membership meeting preceding the membership vote.
The membership will vote on new variance requests received at least 14 (calendar) days ahead of the next scheduled meeting during that meeting. Requests submitted within 14 days will be voted at the following month’s meeting.
Membership may vote to table the variance request for one month when there’s justification. Examples are changes stated about the submitted plans, unanswered questions or any issues that arise from the presentation.
SPCA may call a special meeting to vote variance requests when justified. An example is a month without a regularly schedule membership meeting.
New variance requests, including a copy of the requesters application for variance, will be posted on the SPCA website. Additionally, the request will be added to the agenda of the next membership meeting and postcards will be sent to property owners within 125′ for the subject property. The SPCA board will strive to ensure notification of variance applications is posted on nextdoor.com and the SPCA’s official Facebook page.
