Executive Summary
The subject property located about midblock on Sandtrap Lane in the Northern Hills subdivision. The subdivision was developed in two phases in the 1970's: the first phase was platted as a Planned Unit Development (PUD) with zero lot lines. The second phase was not platted as a Planned Unit Development, but was developed with zero lot line residences. Each home in the subdivision is within five feet and many homes have one wall on the property line, as is the case with this property. The applicant has been hired to renovate this property and is proposing to turn an alcove that currently does not have a roof and missing part of the wall, which is lying on the property line. The applicant would like to completely wall in the property to construct a bathroom. Upon visit to the site, staff found that the neighbor's fence gate abuts directly the subject property.
Zoning History
The subject property was annexed into the City of San Antonio on December 26, 1972 by Ordinance #41430 as "Temp R-1" Residential Single Family. The property was rezoned on October 18, 1973 by Ordinance #42924 to "R-3" Multiple Family residence district. The property was rezoned from "R-3" Multiple Family residence district to the current "R-5" Single Family residence district by Ordinance 53096, dated December 4, 1980.
