Report Date

January 28, 2010





The applicant is proposing to replace an existing 85 foot seawall along the canal at the rear of their property on 102nd Street.




The plans are engineered and have been granted preliminary DERM approval. The village relies on DERM for the technical review of seawalls.


Final DERM review and approval is required before building permits can be issued by the village. 




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 and Zoning 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 secure final DERM approval before a building permit will be issued.

2)      Applicant to obtain a building permit before commencing work.

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