Executive Summary
The subject property is located at 3502 Litchfield Drive and is not within an established neighborhood association. The applicant's property is a corner lot, with a sidewalk on the front and side yard. The City of San Antonio replaced the sidewalk along Stonehaven Drive and in the process, increasing the elevation of the sidewalk to be about 16 inches above the original grade and the subject property grade. The applicant states they replaced their six-foot fence in July 2019 when a vehicle crashed into the existing fence. The applicant states the variance in height is needed due to the high pedestrian and vehicular traffic along that street.
