Menahga Council approves variance in shoreline district

Email News Alerts

The Menahga City Council has granted a variance to allow the construction of a building on a lot within the shoreland district.

The property, owned by Keith and Jensine Kurtti, is located at 217 Aspen Avenue SW, near the city beach and tennis courts near Spirit Lake.


The variance was required because the building will mean more than 30 percent of the lot will have an impervious surface, which deviates from the zoning ordinance.
