Homeowners Allowed to put Shed in Setback

The Upper Macungie Zoning Board gives homeowners some extra space on Milkweed Drive to put a shed in their yard.


Tricia Martnick and Scott Keys of 285 Milkweed Drive in wanted to put a shed in their yard. But it didn’t fit.

So they came to the Upper Macungie Township Zoning Board to win a variance for some squeezing room and put it, partially, into a setback.

“We need 2 1/2  feet on the side of the property, and none in the back to allow the shed,” Keys explained.

The board passed the variance 6-0, as the 2 ½ feet did not protrude into a pedestrian area.

What a joke...these tax paying citizens can't put a shed on their property because of 2 1/2 feet....but you allow a massage parlor in the community...you all should be fired!

I think you read this article wrong. They won the variance and CAN put the shed in their yard.
