Agenda Item Summary:
(Update January 30, 2019. All revised and/or added text is shown in bold.) This item was continued from the January 24th Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting to allow the applicant to submit a revised site plan showing the removal of multiple accessory structures from the proposed lots. Staff has revised the Variance requests and stipulation requiring fire sprinkler protection in all residential structures due to the changes in the site layout. No other portion of this report has been changed. The applicant has submitted a Variance request to reduce multiple setback and lot density requirements for existing residential and accessory structures. The applicant is proposing to subdivide an existing parcel of land into three new lots in order to redevelop the resulting properties separately. The existing parcel of land contains three lots and is occupied by two residential structures and five accessory structures. Specifically, the applicant is requesting to allow reductions in setbacks for existing structures and lot densities for the proposed lots in order to redevelop each property individually. The specific Variance requests are as follows:Proposed Lot 1AR: To reduce the front yard setback for a Single Family Residence from 25 feet to 5.5 feet; To reduce the rear yard setback for a Single Family Residence from 25 feet to 7.53 feet; and, To reduce the minimum lot size for a single family residence from 6,500 square feet to 5,294.8 square feet.Proposed Lot 2AR: To reduce the minimum lot size for a duplex from 8,000 square feet to 5,888.7 square feet.As a stipulation of approval in the Preliminary Subdivision Plan application approved for the property (File# 18PL106), an additional 13.5 feet of right-of-way must be dedicated along all lot frontage that abuts both Schamber Street and Twin Elms Drive. Many of the current structures on the property are legal-non conforming as to front yard setbacks along Schamber Street. The additional dedication of right-of-way required with the subdivision of the existing parcel has resulted in increased encroachment into front yard setbacks for existing residential and accessory structures on the property. Additionally, in order to secure adequate access to each proposed lot, the lot lines for the proposed subdivision have been configured in a way that will create additional non-conformities for side yard setbacks, rear yard setbacks, and minimum lot size requirements.
