Executive Summary
The subject property is located at 2403 Mission Forest on the west side of San Antonio. The neighborhood is predominantly surrounded by single-family residential properties. The applicant is requesting a variance to encroach into the 5 feet minimum side setback requirement and 10 feet minimum front setback for a detached carport. The plat for this property shows a right-of-way of 50 feet; the current street width is 30 feet, so an additional 10 feet of right-of-way is required on either side of the street. Therefore, the property line for 2403 Mission Forest starts 10' back from the street curb, and the front setback requirement is 10' from that point. The carport will encroach 9'9" into the front setback, and 1'11" into the side setback. The purpose of the carport is to protect the property owner's vehicle. Many other large carports are present in the surrounding neighborhood.
