Staff Report - Variance #514
6/27/2013 Page | 2

Project Description & Comments:
The owners wish to remove the existing garage and build a new one, put a small addition in the
rear and remodel the interior of the home. The value of the project exceeds the substantial
remodel threshold of $421,000. In order for the building permit to be granted, they must bring
the property into compliance with current zoning codes per CHMC 17.60.030.
The existing northern corner of the home encroaches into the side yard setback by 7.5 feet.
The existing garage also encroaches into both the north side yard and the east front yard setbacks;
however, the proposed changes would eliminate this structure and both encroachments. The new
garage will comply with current zoning code.

Variance Analysis:
CHMC Section 17.16.050 requires a 10-foot side yard setback for lots larger than 10,000 square
feet but smaller than 15,000 square feet.
Variance Request: For an existing triangular portion of the home to encroach 7.5 feet into the
north side yard setback.


Criteria #1 17.72.030 A (No Special Privilege)
The applicant wishes to remodel the interior, demolish the existing garage and rebuild a new
garage: these are permitted uses in the R-1 zoning district.
Criteria #2 17.72.030 B (Extraordinary Situation)
The existing structure creates an extraordinary situation. To correct the non-conformities would
require removing portions of the foundation and roof which would be detrimental to the
structural integrity and function of the existing structure. Discontinuing the eave and shape of
the gabled end wall could be considered unsightly.
The lot has 90 feet of frontage on 90
th
Ave NE, less than the currently required 100 feet of
frontage on a right-of-way.
All new construction would comply with current code requirements.

Criteria #3 17.72.030 C (Not Detrimental)
It does not appear that the granting of this variance to continue the use of an existing non-
conformity will create any view conflicts, as the structure already exists.
The granting of the variance does not appear to be offensive to any of the neighbors as the
non-conformities already exist.

Meeting Notice:
