Project Description

The below project summary has been revised to reflect a project scope change to include an existing shed located on the eastern side property line.

The applicant requests Variance approval to construct a 1,045-square foot addition directly below their existing residence and allow an existing shed to encroach into the side setback. The 1,045 square feet of proposed development would result in a floor area ratio of 25.5 percent on the 12,333-square foot lot. The addition would reach a maximum height of 9 feet above surrounding grade and would have the following setbacks: 41 feet from the northern front property line; 5 feet from the eastern side property line; 75 feet from the western side property line; 39 feet from the southern rear property line. The existing shed would reach a maximum height of 9 feet above surrounding grade and would have the following setbacks: 25 feet from the northern front property line; 0 feet from the eastern side property line; over 100 feet from the western side property line; 57 feet from the southern rear property line.

Variance approval is required because the proposed understory addition encroaches 5 feet into the 10-foot side setback and the shed is within the 10-foot side setback.
