RE:          Agenda Item 1 - Certified Survey Map for Gateway Meadows


The applicants John and Lori Hein are proposing a certified survey map (CSM) to rectify a setback problem created by the original builder of the home.  The builder mistakenly used a property marker that he thought was the property line but turned out to be a property line marker for the adjacent property.  Due to this error, the home has a 0’ side setback.  This CSM corrects that error by creating a 7’ side setback.  This was accomplished through the purchase of 7’ from the adjacent property owner.  Fortunately, the adjacent home had more than adequate side setback to accomplish this correction.  

Findings of Fact

Staff finds that this CSM complies with all requirements of Town of Menasha Chapter 6 Subdivision Control/Planned Unit Development Ordinance.

Staff Recommendation                            

Staff recommends approval of this CSM.
