Case Number:
BOA-20-10300098
Applicant:
Killen, Griffin & Farrimond
Owner:
Susan Heard
Council District:|1010|Location:
314 East Hollywood Avenue
Legal Description:
Lot 4B, NCB 6120
Zoning:
"R-5 H AHOD" Residential Single-Family Monte Vista Historic Airport Hazard Overlay District
Case Manager:
Dominic Silva, Senior Planner

Request
A request for 1) a 7' variance to the minimum front setback of 10', as described in Section 35-310.01, to allow a structure to be 3' from the front property line, 2) a variance to allow a privacy fence, as described in Section 35-514, to be within the Clear Vision Field and 3) a variance from the minimum required 20' garage setback, as described in Section 35-516, to allow a garage entrance to be 3', and 4) a variance to allow a solid screen fence, also described in Section 35-514, to be 6'4" within the front property
Executive Summary
The applicant is requesting a variance from the minimum front setback in order to expand the current garage to be 3' from the front property line. The property has many atypical features that are unique to the surrounding area including a front yard pool built in 1967 (with an approved variance), fronting on an improved named alley, and a lot configuration that is both long and narrow with little room for expanding the current footprint of the residence. The subject property is also one of the few homes that front East Hollywood; the majority front either East Rosewood or Schreiner Place.

The existing fence of 6'4" will stay as is, with no modifications plans. Due to the receptacle cover within the front property, Clear Vision was requested; however, it only extends 2" into the field of Clear Vision.
