Request
A request for a variance from the Form Based Zone (T-4) regulations that restrict parking within the first layer, as described in Section 35-209, to allow the property to be developed with parking spaces in the first 1/3 of the lot depth.

The applicant is requesting relief from the Form Based Zone District (T-4) regulations that restrict parking within the first layer to allow an existing property to be developed with parking spaces in the first 1/3 of the lot depth. The intent of Form Based Zone District (T-4) regulations that restrict parking within the first layer is to create a visual character reinforcing community identity.
