Anna Maria neighborhood OK with variance request

A neighborhood meeting in Anna Maria Nov. 9 to discuss an upcoming variance request by Mike and Nancy Yetter and Joseph and Shirley McGuire for two adjacent lots currently on Gulf Drive met with no opposition from residents.

The meeting was to inform residents on Park Avenue of the future request to the planning and zoning board to essentially have the two lots at 119 Park Ave. turned lengthwise so they face Park Avenue, not Gulf Drive.

Mike Yetter said the principal reason for the request is a safety issue so that occupants of the residences don’t have to back onto Gulf Drive when they exit the property.
