Applicant Patrick Baltes was present for the hearing.

No letters or calls in support of or against this conditional use request were received by the Zoning Department, nor was anyone present. Board Member Fluhrer inquired as to whether the applicant had a lot of vehicles sitting around the property. It was determined that there are 4 to 5 vehicles that sit on the property regularly, but that there have been up to 15 or 16 vehicles at the most. Applicant Baltes stated that he tries not to have anything sitting on the property for too long because they live there and do not want it to look like a junk yard.
