Request
A request for a 4' 8" variance from the minimum 5' side setback requirement, as described in Section 35-310.01, to allow a carport with 2" gutters to be 4" away from the side property line.

Executive Summary

The subject property is located mid-block along Brunswick Boulevard. The applicant received a code violation for building without a permit in January of 2021, which caused the submittal for a variance. Although it is unclear where the property line is, upon staff's field visit, the carport appears to be built as close as 4" from the property line and has a 2" gutter. The carport has a width of 16 feet and a length of 34 feet. The subject property is located within a neighborhood with older development, so there are other carports in the surrounding area with similar setback encroachments.

Code Enforcement History
There is an open code enforcement violation case for building without a permit.

Permit History
There are no relevant permits pulled for the property.

Zoning History
The subject property was annexed into the City of San Antonio on September 23, 1944 by Ordinance 1391 and was zoned "B" Residence District. Rezoned to "R-1" Residence District on July 11, 1996 by Ordinance 84398. The zoning converted from "R-1" to the current "R-6" Residential Single Family District upon adoption of the 2001 Unified Development Code (Ordinance 93881, dated May 3, 2001).
