This month’s BZA meeting was far speedier than the one in July (involving a controversial design on Sutherland Place).  With only one case and no opposition, the meeting was over in minutes.

Members present:  Trey Schaefer, Valerie Askew, Hope Cannon, Brian Jarmon and Ross McCain.

Members absent:  Jeffrey Foster and Lauren Gwaltney.

Staff present:  Greg Cobb, Building, Zoning and Engineering Department, Donna Bridges, board secretary.

Attendance:  2 (the lone applicant and intrepid reporter)

Approved minutes: Minutes of both the July 10, 2014, meeting and a special called meeting later that month, were approved.

Approved unanimously:  A no more than 7.9-f00t right building setback and no more than a 14.2-f00t front building setback at 316 LaPlaya Place was approved for this planned addition to a large house on an irregular corner lot.  The owner plans to build over an existing sunken courtyard and patio as well as redo a sun room in order to add a dining room and family room and remodel the kitchen. None of the proposed construction would be beyond the lines of the current house, (which is currently non-conforming, and unbelievably, does not have a dining room, just an eat in kitchen).

The meeting was adjourned.
