The subject property is located at 350 Cosgrove Street at its intersection with South Walters Street. The applicant is requesting to keep a carport built without permits within the front and side property setbacks and received a citation from Code Enforcement on July 6, 2018. The carport is built out of metal and wood. The applicant also built a front yard fence without permits and paid a double fee permit on October 17, 2018. The applicant did a second curb cut without permits and staff confirmed with traffic that a permit is needed. The subject property is located at a corner and has a detached two car garage with an attached carport located in the rear of the property with a wide curb cut approach. During visits to the site, staff was unable to identify any of the corner properties with carports located on the front yard. This block has some properties not located on intersections with carports located within the side and front yards.
