Staff Report

David A. Dacquisto AICP, Director, Planning and Zoning

Report Date

January 27, 2010





The applicant is proposing to enclose an existing 20 foot wide X 10 foot deep, 200 square foot porch.  The applicant would create a 146 square foot front porch and a 128 square foot office that extends into the existing home.


The existing metal columns will be removed and the porch will be given new Keystone cement columns.




The design is well integrated into the fašade of the residence.


The site is landscaped and meets Miami-Dade requirements for landscaping.


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




Planning and Zoning staff recommends APPROVAL of the site plan 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 Section 523 of the Code 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)      Applicant to obtain all required building permits before beginning work.

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

3)      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.
