Staff Report

David A. Dacquisto AICP, Director, Planning and Zoning

Report Date

May 9, 2011





The applicant is proposing an open covered entrance addition to the front of the residence.  The entrance is approximately 9 feet in depth and 13 feet in width and will have a clay tile roof.


The applicant is showing additional paving in the front yard to widen the existing driveway to approximately 30 feet.  The driveway leads to a garage located in front of the residence.   The garage is oriented to the south side plot line rather than to the street as is more common.


The applicant is proposing 2 36 inch tall columns at the side of the driveway at the front property line.




The proposed entrance is well integrated into the design of the residence.


Unless specifically approved by this board as part of site plan review, no driveway in the front yard may exceed 20 feet in width.


The proposal is consistent with the technical provisions of the Village Code except as noted.




Unless specifically approved by the Planning Board the following approval does not include widening the front driveway.


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 meet all applicable code provisions at the time of permitting.

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

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.
