|This appeal concerns 1310 Sherry Circle. The property is zoned R-2 Residential Single Family Dwelling District. The applicant is seeking two variances. A variance that would allow more than three accessory structures and a variance that would allow additional square footage.
Section 11-16-2: I of the Zoning Ordinance states: " No more than two (2) accessory buildings may be located on any lot unless the primary building has no attached garage, in which case a third accessory building may be permitted if one of the three (3) accessory buildings is a detached garage." Currently, there are four existing accessory structures on the property.
Section 11-16-3: C of the Zoning Ordinance states: " Lots one-half (1/2) acre and greater, but less than one acre: 1. The total square footage for all accessory buildings shall not exceed eight hundred (800) square feet.
" Currently there is 160 square feet of accessory structure footage. The applicant wants to add 1,350 square feet for a total of 1,510 square feet.
A variance may be granted upon the Board of Adjustment finding that:
1. The application of the ordinance to the particular piece of property would create an unnecessary hardship.
2. The conditions are peculiar to the particular piece of property involved.
3. Relief, if granted, would not cause substantial detriment to the public good, or impair the purpose and intent of the ordinance.
4. The variance, if granted, would be the minimum necessary to alleviate the unnecessary hardship.
Any person or persons applying to the Board of Adjustment for a variance shall have the burden of showing that all the criteria above have been met. Please see the attached application for the applicant’s response to the criteria.
