Report Date

September 29, 2009





According to a previous determination of the Planning Board, the residence fronts on NE 97th Street.  The applicant is proposing to reconfigure a covered patio and convert part to an enclosed great room leaving the easterly 20 feet X 7 feet end as a covered patio open to the east.


The conversion will include a new covered entry and bathroom.  The bathroom will serve the pool and is not accessible from within the residence.




The design is well integrated into the fašade of the residence.


The site is landscaped and meets Miami-Dade requirements for landscaping.


The proposal is consistent with the technical provisions of the Zoning Code.




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 or Department of Health approval for the septic system prior to the issuance of a village building permit.

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.
