Staff Report

Report Date

Background

 

The applicant is proposing to demolish the existing residence and construct a new 2 story, 5,067 square foot, 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom residence.

 

The R25 District requires that residences have an interior cubic space of not less than 25,000 cubic feet.

 

The property is on NE 101st Street in east Miami Shores, just west of NE 13th Avenue.

 

The residence is described as an old West Palm Beach design with a slope barrel tile roof.

 

The residence includes a 2 stall attached garage at the front of the residence facing the front yard to the south and fronting on NE 101st Street.

 

The applicant is proposing 2 ribbon driveways to access the garage parking spaces.

Analysis

 

The architect refers to the residence as old West Palm Beach. The design has little ornamentation and is compatible with existing architecture in the area.

 

The property is in an AE8 flood district (8 Ft NGVD).  The residence must be constructed above (8 Ft NGVD) and this will be verified by the building official.

 

The proposal is consistent with the technical provisions of the Zoning Code.

 

Recommendation

 

Planning and Zoning staff recommends APPROVAL of the site plan for a new 2 story, 5,067 square foot, 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom residence with a finding that it is consistent with the technical provisions of the Code.  However, the Planning Board must make a finding that the proposed improvements are harmonious with the community, as required in Articles V and VI of Appendix A Zoning of the Code of Ordinances, and, in that regard, may add further conditions or delete or modify staff recommended conditions, deny the application, or continue the item for future consideration.  Should the board find that the applicant merits approval, staff recommends that the following conditions apply:

 

 

1)      Approval is granted for a new 2 story, 5,067 square foot, 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom residence.

2)      The front driveway is approved as part of this approval.

3)      The residence shall be constructed at not less than the base flood elevation of AE8.

4)      Applicant to secure necessary DERM or Department of Health approval for the septic system prior to the issuance of a village building permit

5)      Applicant to obtain all required building permits before beginning work.

6)      Applicant to meet all applicable code provisions at the time of permitting.

7)      This zoning permit will lapse and become invalid unless the work for which it was approved is started within one (1) year of the signing of the development order by the board chair, or if the work authorized by it is suspended or abandoned for a period of at least one (1) year.
