 ECCA position: Recommend denial.  There is no hardship due to the shape of the lot or the topology.  If the garage is moved over 4.5 ft. to the west, no variance is required.  In addition, given the side setback is only 10 feet, this may encourage other neighbors to try to seek variances to build in this limited area.

Board of Zoning Appeals and Variances Action: Approval for 7.5 ft. from the property line 5-0 subject to this improvement only and other staff comments
