Milliken said the zoning commission also had discussed conditions of one, three or five years, with each tied to specific tasks being completed by certain times.

He added that the petitioners didn’t have any plans and couldn’t give any indications when or how they might proceed.

Residents voiced concerns that the manufactured home would be allowed to remain there permanently.

The Millers applied for and received a special-use permit in March/April 2008 to place a manufactured home on the property while they worked to build a new permanent home on the property.

A condition was placed on that special-use permit that it would expire in five years, because the petitioner had indicated he would have the new permanent house built in that timeframe, according to Milliken.

Due to the economy, lack of finances and other personal, family issues, the new home construction has not been completed, Milliken said.

n Approving two alley vacation requests. One is for Watchfire Signs for an alley vacation adjacent to 1015 E. Maple St.

The other alley vacation is for a north-south alley between North Logan Avenue and Kimber Street adjacent to 412 N. Sheridan St. for Presence Hospitals PRV.
