JPC meeting is tonight at Bemidji City Hall

The Greater Bemidji Area Joint Planning Commission will convene for its regular monthly meeting at 6 p.m. tonight, Thursday, at Bemidji City Hall.

The agenda includes two variance requests:

- A variance request from John and Jane Kryst to remove an existing summer cabin at 5503 Mallard Lane in Northern Township and build in its place a year-round single-family residence. The Krysts are requesting three variances: a 38-foot variance from the ordinary high water mark of Lake Bemidji, a 4 percent impervious surface variance, and a 7.5-foot variance from the regular 10-foot side and rear yard setbacks.

- A variance request from William Frey and Shari Schluchter, 303 Elm St. N.W., to remodel and expand an existing single-family residence. They plan to remove an old addition, replace it and add an attached garage.

The JPC makes recommendations to the Joint Planning Board.
