Required Background Information

 

Daniel Carlson is appealing a decision by the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) approving variances of the lot coverage and height requirements for accessory buildings (garage) requirements in order to construct a two-story detached garage in the rear yard of an existing single-family dwelling.

 

The zoning code allows an accessory building height of 15' for gable-style roofs and a lot coverage of 35% of the rear yard, or 1,000 square feet, whichever is less.

 

The applicant requested an accessory building height of 16'-4" and a lot coverage of 1,240 square feet which includes an existing 120 square foot shed and the proposed 1,120 square foot garage. The BZA approved both variances. The appellant contends that due to clerical problems at the Department of Safety and Inspections, the appellant's objections to the proposed variance were never heard at the BZA public hearing dated Monday, October 7th, 2019. The appellant also contends that the project is out of scale for their neighborhood. The appellant stated that there are more objections to the variance by neighborhood homeowners than was evidenced at the BZA hearing.
