Staff Report

Background

 

The applicant is proposing two additions to the rear of the residence.  The residence fronts on  NE 107th Street and is on the corner with NE 102nd Court where the addition is visible.

 

The work includes a 330 square foot flat roof addition  to create a new living room and a 242 square foot slope roof addition to create a new master bath.

 

Analysis

 

The existing slope roof is 2,681 square feet in area.  A residence with an existing slope roof may have a flat roof addition of up to 15% of the area of the existing slope roof, 402 square feet in this case.  The flat roof addition meets code requirements.

 

The house is a 50’s ranch style design with little architectural detail.  The addition is to the rear of the property and is integrated into the existing residence and compatible with its original design.

 

The applicant is proposing to add one bathroom and therefore must secure DERM and/or Department of Health approval prior to the issuance of village building permits.  It is the applicant’s responsibility to provide sufficient open space to accommodate required septic systems.  The plans do not indicate the location or area of the existing septic system.

 

Recommendation

 

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 secure necessary DERM and/or Department of Health approval for the septic system prior to the issuance of village building permits.

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

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

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.
