WASHINGTON — The Board of Zoning Appeals voted 6-1 to approve a variance for a Type III manufactured home to be placed on the property of Ivan Stoll at 105 ½  Eastside Park Road. The variance on the property, which is zoned industrial, will dissolve when Stoll’s son Clinton Stoll, is no longer residing in the mobile home which will be located on the west side of an existing warehouse. 

Linda Stoll, wife of Ivan, said that the 14’ by 56’ single wide structure would not be a long term residence for anyone else after Clinton, who has muscular dystrophy, was no longer able to live independently. “We may turn it into an office but we do not have any intention of anyone else living there,” said Linda Stoll.

The mobile home in question is currently located in Parkside East Mobile Court. The Stoll’s previously owned Parkside East.  The Stoll’s had signatures from all the property owners in the vicinity of where the mobile home will be moved. “ None of the property owners had a problem with moving it (the trailer) there,” said Ivan Stoll.

In other news, the board voted 7-0 to approve for Alexi Wise to use a residence located at 209 Apraw Road for a dog grooming business. Wise said the business would be open Monday through Friday and possibly some Saturdays. “I may have some hours on Saturday for special appointments for those who don’t have time throughout the week,” said Wise.  Grooming will cost between $25 and $40. Wise said the business would be marked with a sign and she had all the permits necessary.
