Ord 19-12 3/15/2019 6:24 AMEric Lein Against For "mixed uses" (commercial/residential), the Saint Paul zoning code's minimum front yard setbacks are: BC = 25-feet; T2 = 0-feet. Today's existing front yard setback at 770 Grand aligns with its two easterly neighbors, is attractive, and is very much in keeping with Grand Avenue's historic character. Owners of 770 Grand should NOT be allowed to fill that parcel's front yard with new construction. If zoning at 770 Grand is changed from BC to T2, all future owners of that property will have been granted very strong incentives to eliminate the front yard by adding unattractive and inappropriate new construction. [e.g., 814 Grand -- see google streetview link: ] As a lifetime resident of St. Paul's Summit Hill and Ramsey Hill neighborhoods, and as the owner of four apartment buildings on Grand Ave. near Milton St., I sincerely hope that you will DENY THIS REZONING REQUEST. +2 -2 2
