A request for a variance of 3'8" from the 5' rear setback requirement described in section 35-370 to allow a detached carport to be 1'4" from the rear property line.
Executive Summary
The applicant is seeking a rear setback variance to allow a reconstructed carport to be retained in place within the 5' rear setback. Per the applicant, the previous carport was destroyed by a tornado in 2016; the previous carport had been in place since 1990. The applicant rebuilt the carport in the same footprint of the destroyed carport. On July 2, 2019, a code investigator noticed the carport built without permits. The new carport has a steel structure with a canvas roof.
