Agenda Item Summary:
The applicant has requested a Variance to reduce a portion of the side yard setback from 8 feet to 5.5 feet for the property located at 5936 Cloud Peak Drive. The property is 0.38 acres in size and developed with a single family residential structure, typical in size and layout to that of the neighborhood. The residence has recently been constructed and later determined that a small portion of the structure is within the minimum required 8-foot side yard setback. The property is zoned Low Density Residential District II which is the same zoning designation as the properties in this neighborhood. Single family homes are a permitted use in the Low Density Residential District II. An 8-foot drainage and utility easement exists along the side yard where the Variance is requested. In making this request, the applicant has vacated the portion of the drainage and utility easement located within the proposed setback reduction area. The structures in this neighborhood, including the subject property, are protected with residential fire sprinkler equipment. Cloud Peak Drive is a local street carrying residential traffic. The Variance request does not create any loss of visibility for pedestrians or the travelling public.
