Building Permit - New Construction
Based on the application and plans as submitted and revised, Staff recommends APPROVAL of the requested waivers from the Design Guidelines: 1. Waiver to allow a 13.4-ft landscaping depth between the parking and the right-of-way on the northern portion of the parking lot frontage (20-ft minimum required, Section 1.7.9). Staff is recommending approval of the waiver due to the existing driveway that restricts layout of the parking lot. 2. Waiver to allow no landscaping immediately surrounding the building (50% of the length of the faҫade required, Section 3.3.3).
