Board of Zoning Appeals meeting announcement

The Village of Ada will hold a Board of Zoning Appeals meeting at 5:00 p.m. on October 23, 2023, at the Ada Depot to hear an appeal of a denial to erect a 6’ Privacy Fence within a Front Yard at the northeast corner of S. Johnson and E. High, specifically 722 S. Johnson. 

The request is to replace a current 4’ chain link fence with a 6’ privacy fence. The new fence would be repositioned to the southwest corner of the current garage, proceeding westward towards the house.  

This request has been denied as the Ada Village Code does not allow a 6’ fence to be erected within a front yard. In this case, the applicant has two front yards since she lives on a corner lot.
