Variance of Development Standards to construct a garage addition to a dwelling creating an aggregate side setback of 2.5’ (13’ setback required) and creating an open space of 45% (minimum 65% required).

March 2, 2015 UPDATE:

New commitments and agreements on the project at 522 East 51st Street

After several meetings with concerned neighbors, MKNA agreed to support this case with the following commitments from the Petitioner:

  • We are agreeable to the variances required for the one-car detached garage in the location of existing car port (two car garage originally presented)
  • The petitioner has agreed to cut the patio back to the allowed setback and use the exposed aggregate that is already installed (request was to reduce the setbacks to allow for a larger patio, resulting in increased lot coverage)
  • Driveway to be pervious concrete strips with grass in the middles as shown on site plan provided by petitioner (reduces amount of hard scape and addresses drainage concerns)
  • The petitioner provided a drainage plan showing how rain water would be adequately addressed on the site.  MKNA supports this plan, assuming it is approved when petitioner files for their drainage plan with the City.
  • The petitioner has agreed to take efforts to preserve the  large, mature tree in the back yard.

We appreciate the petitioner and neighbors working to reach an agreement.

For additional background on this case please read the MKNA Land Use Report, January 7, 2015 for more information on this case including the committee’s unanimous decision to deny the variance.


All interested parties are encouraged to attend and participate.
