TABLED ITEMS

 

  1. 1. PZ-4-13-201320: 1020 NE 99th Street, (Owner) Julianna Castro, (Applicant) Same, (Agent) Miguel Rionda; Pursuant to Articles IV, V and VI of Appendix A Zoning, Sec. 400, Sec. 520 and Sec. 702, Hardship Variance. Sec. 518 (a) (4). Fence height on Biscayne Boulevard.

 

Mr. Dacquisto provided background information, summarized the information on the staff report and read the staff recommendation and conditions of approval into the record. Juliana Castro, Alex Redondo and Miguel Rionda were present. Mr. Redondo asked staff to point out based on the four variance criteria’s that needed to be met which criteria was not being met. Staff answered that none of the criteria’s were met. Mrs. Castro asked staff if he recalled how many requests were made for a height variance on Biscayne Boulevard. Staff mentioned he did not recall any for a fence on Biscayne Boulevard but board had in the past denied a gate height variance on Biscayne. Mr. Abramitis asked staff if location where homeowners were seeking variance, does the code permit them to have a solid fence or does it have to be pickets or some sort of iron bars. Staff answered they could have a solid fence on Biscayne Blvd which would be masonry fence. New code says that if wood fence it would have to be a picket fence on a corner lot. Owner is requesting a solid wall. Chairman asked about height along Biscayne Blvd and if it is measured at 6ft. then request would be at a 33% variance. Julianna Castro gave presentation and mentioned palm trees are presently covering wall but after several attempts to fertilize they have no remedy and are dying. Safety is a great concern because of her two small children and the access that people have along Biscayne Blvd to her property. Mr. Redondo also reiterated safety concern and mentioned it creates a hardship on full use of home. Miguel Rionda mentioned there is an 8 ft. wall on 95th street.

Motion to deny application.

Moved Robert Abramitis, Seconded by John Busta.

Motion withdrawn for public comment.

Public Comment Open

Randy Brostek 1035 NE 99th St. Mr. Brostek stated he has the same wall of Biscayne Boulevard and mentioned he does not use that side of the property because of outside traffic on that side of home. Regarding the safety issue he also finds on a daily basis broken bottles and things that are thrown into yard. It is a real safety issue for him and he believes it’s a real concern for their neighbors because they have small children. Mr. Brostek also mentioned there is a lack of privacy for homes. He is in support of the variance and respects board’s decision.

NEW ITEMS

  1. 1. PZ-6-13-201336: 680 NE 97th Street, (Owner) Robert and Rosaline Frame, (Applicant) Same, (Agent) Mark Campbell; Pursuant to Articles IV, V and VI of Appendix A Zoning, Sec. 400, Schedule of Regulations and Sec. 600, Site plan review and approval required. Garage conversion, cabana and office.

 

Mr. Dacquisto provided background information, summarized the information on the staff report and read the staff recommendation and conditions of approval into the record. Mr. Campbell was present as agent and mentioned they understood provision denying canopy be attached to the converted garage because it could be seen from the street. Mr. Abramitis asked staff if board approved staff recommendations what could potentially happen to space if no pool is built, would it become usable space. Staff mentioned that provision was placed as a recommendation because of several previous applications that were presented to board. The condition that no final CO be given technically spaced cannot be used because it has not received its final inspection. Mr. Abramitis concerns are that the cabana is away from pool designated area and is afraid that if a shower is in cabana that this location can become a rental unit in the long run if a pool is not built. Mr. Campbell and owner mentioned that a pool will be built and cabana will have a shower in it. The pool is located in a different section than most because of the existing septic system and plumbing. The garage already exists and therefore will be used as cabana/personal office. As per Mr. Frame pool will be built before cabana is complete. Mr. Busta asked Mr. Campbell if a side door existed and if no additional doors will be created. Mr. Campbell stated there is one existing door and no additional doors would be added. Mr. Frame addressed board with his concern about canopy and Mark Campbell explained to his client that canopy is under the provision of a flat roof and per code it could not be seen from the street.

Motion to approve subject to staff recommendations with the additional requirement that the site plan include the construction of a pool and no certificate of occupancy be issued for the cabana until pool is granted final approval by the building official.

Moved by Robert Abramitis, John Busta.

Motion passed unanimously.
