September 2014 Land Use Report

Posted 1:31 AM by

Land Use Committee Report

September 9th, 2014

Committee Members Present: Justin Kingen, David Gorden, Eileen Hack, Alicia Garceua, Mary Owens, Bill Blue, Adam Cobb, Ivan Barratt, Monica Frost.

Others Present: Caroline Farrar, Nick Colby, not sure if additional other members were present.

4559 N. Central Av (SE Corner of 46th & Central AV) Petition # 2014-DV1-046

The committee heard the case for splitting the lot into two lots for the construction of two homes; one on each lot. Petitioner is seeking 7 variances primarily consisting of setback issues and lot coverage. Full details are on file with the Land Use Committee.  The pubic attendants were mostly opposed to the petition. One of the very few supporters were the adjacent property owners to the East. Public opposition seemed to focus on off topic issues relating to design elements, dissatisfaction with the developer and dissatisfaction with timeline of building the first house preceding any variance requests for the 2 nd lot.

Following the public meeting the Land Use Committee privately discussed the issues at length.

The land use committee recommends denial of this petition primarily due to scale and density as well as the concern for setting a “dangerous precedent” in the neighborhood.

Respectfully submitted,

Ivan Barratt, Chair
