New Business

Case #254967 Bonnie Reynolds

Sandra Erwin read the case facts. The applicant proposes to remove the existing manufactured home and construct a new single family dwelling at 1530 N. Anchor Drive, also known as lot 56 of Harbor Park Marina Subdivision. The applicant is requesting a rear yard setback (off of Anchor Drive) from thirty-five feet to eighteen feet (18’). The property is situated in the “R-4” Residential District. All fees have been paid.

No board member had a conflict.

Parker Reynolds, Jr. was sworn in by Chairman Baugh. Mr. Reynolds indicated that the existing 1967 trailer is falling apart, it is not repairable and there is no advantage to putting money into it. Mr. Reynolds noted that the family needs more room and as a result, proposes building a new home with four (4) bedrooms and a loft. The new home will be an improvement to the property. Mr. Reynolds also noted that Bonnie’s father had previously owned the property.

Chairman Baugh questioned the paint colors in the snow. Mr. Reynolds indicated that the red represented the property lines and the green identified the corners of the proposed house. The flags did not work in the snow.

Mr. Reynolds explained that he would like to move the home location closer to the street and further away from the canal. The water, when rising, has gotten approximately seven feet (7’) from the trailer. Tim Erwin noted that the home would line up with the other homes on the street. Mr. Reynolds suggested twelve feet (12’) off the road.

Chairman Baugh questioned the slider location. Mr. Reynolds indicated that the slider is off the back of the house towards the channel. Steps would not be in the side yards.

Chairman Baugh closed discussion from the floor.

The Finding of Fact was reviewed by the Board. The Board agreed with the applicant by a 4 – 0 vote on Items 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7; agreed by a 3 – 1 vote on Item 2; and disagreed by a 3 – 1 vote on Item 1.

Tim McKenna made a motion to amend the rear yard setback request from eighteen feet (18’) to twelve feet (12’) and approve amended Case #254967. The motion was seconded by Brian Caldwell. Motion was approved with all Board members voting in the affirmative. Chairman Baugh did not vote.
