Joel and Marilyn Bjorlo are opposing a variance the Board of Adjustment issued to the Mikrut Properties last month allowing the construction two rail spurs the developer wants located just west of Pelzer Street near McConnon Drive.
The spurs would serve Mikrut's intermodel freight transfer facility west of Pelzer.
A section of the Winona City Code says railroad yards and freight stations must be located at least 200 feet from any residential zoning district. The rail spurs are proposed to be located 135 feet from a residential district occupied by the Bjorlos.
The variance was granted to Mikrut Properties on March 20th The public hearing will be part of the council's regular meeting Monday that starts at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
