New Business

Case #254876 Joe & Lyne Walby

Todd Bickley read the case facts. The applicants previously received a variance to reduce the side yard setback (McCloy Road) from twenty-five feet (25’) to four feet (4’) and reduce the rear yard setback from thirty-five feet (35’) to thirteen feet (13’) for a two-story home on property located at 5608 E. Farrow Drive, also known as Lot 13 of Harbor Park Marinas, Inc. Plat 1 Subdivision. The approval included the condition that the porch would not be enclosed. The property is zoned “R-4”. The applicants are now proposing a one-story home and are requesting approval to increase the house from thirty feet (30’) plus six (6) foot porch to thirty-four feet (34’) with a two (2) foot offset. Steps would be kept four feet (4’) from the property line.

No board member had a conflict.
