Request
Requests for 1) a 2' variance from the 5' side and rear setback requirement as described in Section 35-310.01, to allow an accessory detached dwelling unit to be 3' away from the side and rear property lines, and 2) a 20 square feet variance from the 40% footprint limitation of the principal residence, as described in Section 35-371, to allow an accessory detached dwelling unit to be 506 square feet.

Executive Summary
The subject property is located at 131 E Lambert, near South Flores along the north blockface. The primary dwelling is a one-story home that was constructed in 1938. The property also has a detached garage that was 506 square feet when built. The property is currently in the same configuration as it was in 1929 and is not platted. The applicant began construction on the garage without a permit back in September. The applicant states as soon as they learned a permit was required, they stopped working on the project to begin the permitting process. The building footprint of the primary structure is 1215 square feet, which would allow for an accessory detached dwelling of 486 square feet. The applicant is requesting a 20 square foot variance, an increase of 4% of allowable ADDU size to allow the existing garage to be converted to an ADDU.

Upon a visit to the site, the staff noticed that the project was under construction and appeared to have two rooms with closets. Staff informed the applicant of this and the necessary process, the applicant responded by removing the closet as shown in the site plan.
