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.
Corner house at 316 LaPlaya seen from Poinciana.
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.
