It is true that <br />the area to the west is zoned R-2,.however the property has fully <br />developed with non-residential uses, i.e. Faith Lutheran Church and <br />the Clive water tower. <br />We respectfully submit that the granting of the variance will elim- <br />inate the hardship of the median break location, as well as meet <br />the spirit and intent of the zoning ordinance. <br />We would appreciate your scheduling a Board of Adjustment meeting <br />on December 18, 1989, and would be pleased to make our appeal at <br />that time. <br />Sincerely, <br />CIVIL ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS, INC. <br />Jer /'.
