APPROVAL OF AGENDA

The Zoning Board of Adjustment approved the actions from the August 8, 2019 meeting.

PUBLIC HEARING

1.      3723 Glendale Terrace, Ward 13

Staff report by Andrew Frenz, PLAN9168

The Zoning Board of Adjustment finds in favor of the application by Steve & Mary Grove for the property located at 3723 Glendale Terrace:

A.     Variance.

Motion: Notwithstanding staff recommendation, the Zoning Board of Adjustment approved the variance to reduce the east interior side yard setback from six feet to zero feet for a retaining wall not retaining natural grade based on the following findings:

1.      The proximity to the neighbor’s driveway and existing trees along the property line constitute practical difficulties in providing corrected drainage along the east side of the home and were not created by the applicant.

2.      In addition, the property’s lack of alley access and the hill on the adjacent property to the south, which causes a portion of that property to drain onto the subject property, create a unique need to provide positive drainage.

Absent: Cooper and Finlayson

Aye: Johannessen, Ogiba, Sandberg, Saufley

2.      1423 19th Ave NE, Ward 1

Staff report by Alex Kohlhaas, PLAN9322

The Zoning Board of Adjustment adopted staff findings for the applications by Aaron Timbo for the property located at 1423 19th Ave NE:

A.     Variance.

Motion: Approved the variance to reduce the reverse corner front yard setback from 20 feet to 13 feet 7 inches, subject to the following conditions:

1.      Approval of administrative site plan review application and final site and construction plans by the Department of Community Planning and Economic Development

2.      All site improvements shall be completed by August 22, 2019, unless extended by the Zoning Administrator, or the permit may be revoked for noncompliance.

Absent: Cooper and Finlayson

Approved on consent
