B-21-01, 5844 Fairfax Avenue, Side Yard and Side Street Setback Variance
The subject property is in the north west corner of West 58th Street and Fairfax Ave. consisting of a one-story rambler with a detached two car garage. The homeowners are requesting a .37-foot side yard and a 9.85-foot side street setback variance for a second story addition to an existing nonconforming house. The existing home is nonconforming from the north interior side yard and south side street setbacks. The second-floor addition will be directly above the first floor and will continue to provide the current setbacks as the first floor. The proposed addition will not reduce the existing setbacks. The proposed addition will conform to all other aspects of the zoning ordinance with the exception of maintaining existing nonconforming setbacks of the original home.
This variance request is on the January 27, 2021 Planning Commission agenda.
