Executive Summary

The subject property is located at 215 West Emerson Avenue, approximately 160 feet west of Brentwood Place. The applicant is seeking to keep a front yard privacy fence as tall as 8'5" decreasing to 4.5' built without permits. The fence is 12' away from the street curb instead of 15', in violation of the Clear Vision field. The applicant had built a carport without any permits and received a citation from Code Enforcement in January 27th, 2016. On April 4th, 2016 the Board of Adjustment approved a 1' setback from the side property line to allow for a carport in the subject property. During visits to the site, staff was unable to identify any other fences within the community that are 8' tall.
