ECCA position:  Recommend DENIAL
The 2,010 s.f. house is located in the center of the half acre lot with the proposed garage to be located in the upper right-hand corner. The proposed garage is half again (1,152 s.f.) the size of the house making this development out of proportion to the surrounding neighbors.
With the increase in storage, the shed should no longer be required.
Maximum impervious surface % allowed: 35% (8,690 s.f.)
Maximum impervious surface planned: 3,162 s.f. plus 2,500 s.f. of driveway and walkway; a total of about 5,700 s.f. of impervious surface or 23% impervious surface.
BZA Action (unofficial): APPROVE subject to:
  • Staff comments and recommendations
  • No business to be conducted from the addition
  • Not outfitted as a rental or residence now or in the future
  • Existing shed to be removed from property
