Report Date

November 18, 2010





The applicant proposes to construct a 36 inch tall wood picket fence in the front yard.


The property is at the northeast corner of NE 91st Terrace and NE 9th Avenue.  The fence will wrap around the corner.


Work was begun without a permit.




Applicant is required to secure approval for a fence in the front yard begun without a permit.


The plans show a new driveway and sidewalk.  The driveway and sidewalk will be reviewed when the applicant applies for a building permit and are not reviewed by staff as part of this application or included in the recommendation.


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




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 including building permits for work already begun or completed.

3)      Proposed driveway and sidewalk are not part of this approval.

4)      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.
