Staff recommends APPROVAL
The applicant’s proposal, as summarized in the planning comments is proposed to be a part time business, meant to supplement income.  The applicant will not have any exterior evidence that a business is being operated from this house.  Staff is not aware of any complaints or problems stemming from the originally approved LUP from 2007, and the applicant appears to have complied with the 2007 LUP stipulations.  Staff would be reluctant to recommend approval of this LUP without a proven track record by the applicant of compliance to the LUP stipulations.  Based on the above analysis, Staff recommends APPROVAL for 12
months subject to:
  • No more than four students at the house at any one time;
  • Operation limited to three days per week- Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.;
  • No Signs, no employees, no deliveries, no outdoor storage;
  • No on-street or front yard parking; and
  • Business supplies and equipment limited to typical tutoring materials only.
ECCA position: Case manager says NO ACTION.
Zoning Committee raised the following questions:
  • Is the applicant the owner or tenant?
  • How many students at one time?
  • Who lives in the house?
  • How many cars at one time, on site
Planning Commission Action (unofficial):  Recommended APPROVAL with stipulations.
Board of Commissioners Action (unofficial):  APPROVED with stipulations.
