A parking variance request from the requirements described in Section 35-371 to allow one accessory detached dwelling unit parking space to be located within the front yard of the property.
Executive Summary
The subject property is in the Tanglewood Neighborhood and is a single family dwelling surrounded by single-family dwellings. The property owner is constructing an accessory detached dwelling unit (ADDU) and meets all setback requirements and size requirements for the structure. The applicant states the ADDU is for his daughter. The home is 5' from both side property lines and does not provide the required space to allow a drive to the rear yard. There is no alley access to the rear yard. The UDC requires one parking space to be provided for the accessory detached dwelling unit within Section 35-526 and in Section 35-371 the UDC requires that that space be located behind the front yard. The applicant is seeking a variance to allow the accessory parking space to be located within the driveway as there are two spaces provided there. The primary structure only requires one parking space, and between the attached garage and driveway, the property has four parking spaces.
Zoning History
The subject property was annexed into the City of San Antonio on December 26, 1972 by Ordinance 41426 as "Temp R-1" Temporary Single Family Residence District. Under the 2001 Unified Development Code, established by Ordinance 93881, dated May 03, 2001, the property zoned "Temp R-1" Temporary Single Family Residence District converted to the current "R-6" Residential Single Family District.
