The Greater Bemidji Area Joint Planning Commission will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at Bemidji City Hall. The planning commission has several planning requests on the agenda, including:
-- A 58-foot variance request from the ordinary high water mark of Lake Bemidji for a residence on the 6500 block of Lavinia Road Northeast. The owner wants to remove an existing single-family residence and construct a new single-family residence 42 feet from the ordinary high water mark.
-- A variance is being requested that would allow for the construction of a detached garage on a residential lot on the 1400 block of Rodeo Drive Northwest with a side setback of 10 feet from the road right of way versus the required 50 feet.
-- A 35-foot variance has been requested from the ordinary high water mark of Balsam Creek to allow for the removal of an existing home and the construction of a new single-family residence on the 5000 block of Birchmont Drive Northeast 15 feet from the ordinary high water mark.
-- A variance for a 10-foot side setback and a 7-foot front yard setback has been requested for a residence on the 500 block of Ninth Street Northwest that would allow for construction of a 12-by-12 bedroom addition to the west side of a two-story residence.
-- The owner of a residence on the 2400 block of Vincent Street Northwest has requested a conditional use permit that would allow her to operate a home day care.
-- A public hearing and first annual review is scheduled on a conditional use permit that was issued in 2007 to a residence on the 900 block of Lake Boulevard for the operation of a bed and breakfast.
-- A public hearing is planned for a conditional use permit request from ATARAXIS, which hopes to convert an office building on the 1000 block of Paul Bunyan Drive South into condominiums.
-- The planning commission will consider the Environmental Assessment Worksheet for Pinnacle Village Outlets and decide whether to recommend that a full Environmental Impact Statement should be completed.
In other business, the commission will hear an update on the homeless shelter issue, ordinance changes, and a report from Planning Administrator Mel Milender.
