Executive Summary
The subject property is located at 124 West Summit Avenue, within the Monte Vista Historic District. The area is characterized by residential buildings. The applicant is wanting to build a one-story metal carport within the rear yard that would have a 1'2" overhang and would be 1'5" away from the side property line. The proposed carport will have gutters installed. There was an 8' tall wooden fence along the west, rear and a portion of the east side property line and the applicant is installing the same fence on the remaining portion of the east side property line to have more privacy and security. There exists an alley on the rear side, which allows the rear side fence to be up to 8' in height. The applicant is also requesting a 2' special exception for the side yard fence height.
On January 20, 2021, the Office of Historic Preservation issued the Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) and allowed the construction of a one-story rear carport.
