Agenda Item Summary:
The Zoning Board of Adjustment approved a Variance request (#21VA010) on May 26, 2022, to reduce the south side yard setback from 25 feet to 12 feet for a new warehouse in the southwest portion of the property. During the review of this application, staff identified that the setbacks of the existing structures on the property were nonconforming as a result of a previous rezone from General Commercial District to Light Industrial District. Subsequently, staff suggested that the applicant revise the original request or submit a new application to address these non-conformities. This application is being submitted as a result of that review and discussion. The site is comprised of 1.89 acres of land zoned Light Industrial District and consists of three buildings developed for the purpose of a contracting supply company. The primary structure is located on the north portion of the site and includes a 4,737 square foot office with an attached 2,400 square foot shop built-in 2000. The remaining buildings include a 3,690 square foot warehouse located directly west of the primary structure and a 1,260 square foot warehouse located on the south portion of the site. Both of these warehouses were built in 1996. On July 7, 1999, City Council approved a Rezone request (#99Z016) for the property from General Commercial District to Light Industrial District. The existing buildings were reviewed and approved under the previous zoning designation that allowed a lesser side yard setback than permitted in the Light Industrial District. The required side yard setback in the Light Industrial District is 25 feet, the northern warehouse has a north side yard setback of eight feet four inches, the principal building has a north side yard setback of 11 feet, and the southern warehouse has a south side yard setback of 22 feet. As such the north and south side yard setbacks are considered non-conforming. All non-conformities associated with a property must be legally permitted or rectified before the issuance of a building permit for future site or building improvements.
