A request for a 2' special exception, as described in Section 35-514, to allow a privacy fence to be up to 8' tall in the side and rear of property.
Executive Summary
The subject property is located at 18219 Brookwood Forest, north of North Loop 1604 West and west of Blanco Road. The applicant is requesting to maintain an 8' tall Japanese Cedar fence erected within the side and rear property lines. The applicant installed the solid screen fence without obtaining an appropriate permit.
The property is located within a gated residential community. It is abutting a commercial property on the rear side; therefore, the owner is able to build up to 8' tall along the rear property line. The applicant states concerns of parking headlights and audible noise caused by the vehicles moving around the commercial neighbor.
North Loop 1604 West Access Road is occupied by several commercial properties located in the immediate vicinity that make the neighboring property owners utilize privacy fence to minimize visual and audible distraction stemming from the traffic flow running in the commercial properties parking space.
The adjacent neighbor located at 18215 Brookwood Forest received approval from the Board of Adjustment for a 2'1.5" variance for the same privacy fence on October 19, 2020.
