A Conditional Use Permit for an accessory apartment on an undersized lot in a moderate landslide/avalanche area (USE2021 0004)

The applicant proposes a three-story building that will contain a 617 square foot single-family dwelling and a 397 square foot accessory apartment. The lot is not large enough to accommodate a duplex; however, a single-family dwelling with an accessory apartment no greater than 600 square feet may be permitted with an approved Conditional Use Permit. If approved, the associated Parking Waiver would waive the three required parking spaces.

A Parking Waiver to waive the three required parking spaces for a proposed single-family dwelling and accessory apartment (PWP2021 0001)

The current site design does not allow for any parking and maneuvering on-site. Based on minimum dimensional requirements for a parking space, one space could be provided in the front yard of the building, however, this space would directly abut the proposed arctic entry, there would not be adequate space on-site for maneuvering, and back-out parking into the right-of-way would be required. This Parking Waiver is associated with USE2021 0004.

Alternative Development Permits to reduce yard setbacks (ADP2021 0001, ADP2021 0002, & ADP2021 0003)

The applicant has requested three Alternative Development Permits for the development of a single-family dwelling and accessory apartment on an undersized lot in a moderate landslide/avalanche area. If approved, ADP2021 0001 would reduce the front yard setback from 20 feet to 9 feet 7 inches; ADP2021 0002 would reduce the eastern side yard setback from 5 feet to 2 feet 8 inches; ADP2021 0003 would reduce the western side yard setback from 5 feet to 2 feet 8 inches. These Alternative Development Permits are associated with USE2021 0004.
