Buggy barn setback request denied at BZA

A request from Harlan and Mandy Yoder of 7350W 350N to build a buggy barn 20 ft. from a property line was turned down at Tuesday night’s LaGrange County BZA hearing. The setback from a property line created by a recent replat of a replat is 55 ft.

Several neighbors remonstrated against the closer setback.

The BZA denied the request, noting that there appeared to be plenty of other options to locate the barn on the large lot.

The BZA also turned down an application by Marlin and Laura Beechy of 0190N 600W for an animal feeding operation. The request was modified to 200 head of calves, down from the initial 250, on 7.12 acres. The county requires a minimum of 10 acres.
