Request

The applicant is requesting a variance from the Jefferson Neighborhood Conservation District design standards to allow 1) the carport material to be metal, 2) to allow the carport to be within the 10' structure separation requirement, and 3) a 3'7" variance from the minimum 5' side setback to allow an attached carport to be 1' 5" away from the side property line, and 4) the carport roof to be flat.

Executive Summary

The subject property is mid-block located between Morning Glory and Saint Cloud street facing the Seeling Channel, where the multi-phased floodplain improvements project is in progress. The applicant is requesting a few variances from the Jefferson Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD-7) design standards for an attached carport. The applicant built a metal carport 1'5" away from the eastern property line without obtaining a permit. The attached carport is required to be made of the same building material maintaining the same scale and roofline as the main structure to abide by NCD-7 requirements.

During the site visit, staff recognized wood being the primary building material for a pitched roof dwelling unit while the subject carport is a flat roof, metal structure. The neighbor's garage has been built on the property line, and its overhang is within this property. The proximity of the carport and adjacent garage puts both neighbors within the 10' structure separation requirement and leaves less than a one-foot distance in between, violating the NCD-7 standards.
