695 ARKANSAS STREET - east side between 20th Street and 23rd Street, Lots 25F and 26 in Assessor's Block 4099, and a portion of the 22nd right-of-way (proposed for vacation) - Front setback variance sought. The proposal is to construct an addition in a portion of the existing unimproved 22nd Street Right-of-Way that is proposed to be vacated and annexed to Lot 26. The addition would measure approximately 15-feet wide by 35.5-feet deep by 22.5-feet tall. Planning Code Section 132 requires that a 15-foot setback be provided in front of the dwelling. The house is built to within 2-feet of the front property line and is therefore considered non-complying. The proposal is to build the addition with the same front setback as the rest of the house. The variance will be considered by the Zoning Administrator.
SPEAKER(S): See Speakers for Item 11a.
ACTION: The Acting Zoning Administrator closed the public hearing. He has taken the matter under advisement.
