Reason: Existing home has no garage or carport. Owner desires to add garage to be like-kind with adjacent homes and in keeping with neighborhood. Garage in front of house would cross building line and be uncharacteristically close to road in relation to neighboring homes. Garage on right side or rear of home interferes with existing septic system. Left side of house location for garage is best choice but crosses assumed 10 foot lot line. Neighbor on that side approves location of garage. Variance requested to allow right rear corner of proposed garage to cross into 10 foot side lot line.
Staff Comments: 
ECCA position:  OPPOSESupport staff comments and recommendations to relocate the proposed garage to the front of the original garage.
Maximum impervious surface % allowed: 35% (7,340 s.f.)
Maximum impervious surface % planned: Unknown
BZA Action: HOLD for 30 days. Applicant to meet with county departments to address their comments and recommendations. Applicant willing to pipe stormwater from left side of house and proposed garage to drain in center of front setback.
