CLOSED: This variance was approved by the Planning Commission on January 13, 2021.

The subject property is located on the west side of Wooddale Ave. consisting of a one-story rambler with an attached two car garage. The homeowners are requesting a 5.3-foot south side yard setback variance to extend an existing nonconforming porch an additional 13 feet 7 ½ inches into the rear yard.
