628 43rd Court
Agenda Item Summary:
(Update April 15, 2021. All revised and/or added text is shown in bold.) On April 8, 2021, this Variance request was continued to allow the applicant to meet with staff to provide additional separation and safety materials to protect the neighboring property. On April 13, 2021, staff met with the applicant’s contractor to discuss options. The Building Official and Fire Department concur that a 5-foot side yard setback would remove any additional building code and fire code requirements. Subsequently, the applicant submitted a revised site plan showing a 5-foot side yard setback for the proposed carport. The applicant has submitted a Variance request to reduce the front yard setback from 20 feet to 13.1 feet and the side yard setback from 8 feet to 0.3 feet for a proposed carport located at 628 43rd Court. A Building Permit was issued in error for the proposed carport. However, the carport was not constructed before the error was found. The applicant is proposing to construct a carport measuring 18 feet by 22 feet over the existing driveway. There are no utility and minor drainage easements in the location of the proposed car port. There is a 25-foot setback line on the plat. The applicant would have to vacate the 25-foot setback line prior to issuance of a Building Permit, if the Variance is granted.
