B-20-13 6125 Westridge Boulevard, Side Yard Setback Variance
A 3.6 foot side yard setback variance for a 1st floor addition above an existing nonconforming garage at 6125 Westridge Blvd. The subject property is approximately 19,441 square feet in area, consisting of a one story home with a tuck-under garage, located on the east side of Westridge Blvd. The existing one-story home was built in 1956 and is original in construction. The applicant is proposing a 3.6 foot side yard setback variance from the property line to allow for a main floor addition above the existing nonconforming tuck-under garage located 6.4 feet from the side lot line. The ordinance requires a 10 foot side yard setback. The applicant is undergoing the addition in order to accommodate an extra room and open deck area. Today, the home complies with all required setbacks with the exception of north side yard setback. The home was constructed prior to current setback requirements and did not require a variance for the garage setback. An addition above the existing nonconforming garage to the north side of the home will be no closer to the side lot line than the existing garage below. The proposed addition will encroach the 10 foot side yard setback by 3.6 feet and no closer than existing. The request is to allow the addition to simply match the setback of the garage below.
Final action on this project is taken by the Planning Commission.
