Title

Public hearing to consider Chue Vang's appeal of a decision by the Board of Zoning Appeals denying variances of the off-street parking requirement and driveway width requirement.

 

Body

See attached Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) Resolution

 

The applicant is requesting the following variances: 1) The zoning code states that off-street parking spaces shall not be located in a front yard; the applicant is requesting a variance from this requirement. 2) The zoning code states that driveways that access a public street in front yards may be up to four (4) feet wider than the garage door within 30 feet of the garage. The width of the garage door is 16’, which allows a driveway width of 20’. However, this driveway is 30’ wide, resulting in a variance request of 10’.
