Request
A request for a variance to the garage minimum setback of 20' per Sec 35-516 (g) in the Unified Development Code to allow a garage to be 11' away from the side property line.

Executive Summary

The subject property is located on the near northwest side of San Antonio within a single-family area in the Greater Dellview neighborhood. The applicant is requesting a variance to the driveway setback requiring 20' per the Unified Development Code.

The existing garage was built in the 1940's and in need of replacement. A gas meter currently exists to the rear of the existing garage which will limit the new structure placement.
