Submitted By: Karla Ruther, Assistant City Planner

SUBJECT:
HEAR THE APPEAL OF STEVEN MEIER REQUESTING A VARIANCE ON AN ACCESSORY BUILDING BEING PLACED ON A VACANT LOT LOCATED AT 1306 NORTH WASHINGTON.
BACKGROUND:
This appeal concerns 1306 North Washington. The property is zoned R-7 Residential Multi Family District. The applicant is seeking a variance that would allow a 192 square foot accessory structure on a vacant lot.

Section 11-16-2: F of the Zoning Ordinance states: " No accessory building shall be used unless the principal building on the lot is also in use and no accessory building may be constructed, placed or erected on a vacant lot." Currently, there are two existing accessory structures on the property and will be removed if this variance is approved.

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.



 
RECOMMENDATION:
Hear the appeal and take appropriate action.
PRESENTER:
Chris Bauer, Planning Administrator.
