LU 20-134213 AD

Appeal of Decision of approval of the following Adjustments for a new single-dwelling house:
• To reduce the minimum 10-foot front building setback and the 18-foot garage entrance setback to zero (Zoning Code Section 33.110.220.B); and
• To increase the maximum building height from the average elevation of the northwest and southwest lot corners from 23 feet to 37.2 feet (Zoning Code Section 33.110.215.D.1);
per the approved plans, Exhibits C-1 through C-4, subject to the following conditions:
A. As part of the building permit application submittal, each of the required site plans and any additional drawings must reflect the information and design approved by this land use review as indicated in Exhibits C-1 through C-4. The sheets on which this information appears must be labeled, "Proposal and design as approved in Case File # LU 20-134213 AD.”
B. The bottoms of south-facing windows in the two upper stories of the new home must be at least 6 feet above the floor, as illustrated in Exhibit C-4.
Decision Notice for LU 20-134213 AD Page 12
C. The building permit plans for the new house must include a required vegetative screen consisting of trees and/or shrubs within the eastern 20 feet of the subject site. The plantings must form a continuous screen extending across the entire ground-level, east wall of the new house. The proposed tree or shrub varieties must be labeled, and each plant variety counted toward this condition of approval must have a mature height of at least 8 feet but not more than 20 feet (to avoid conflicting with the view easement in Exhibit G-4). At least 50% of the new plants must be evergreen, and the landscaping requirements in Zoning Code Section 33.248.030 must be met for the new plants. If labeled with trunk diameters and species on the site plan, existing trees to be retained which meet this height limitation and whose trunks are within or partially within the eastern 20 feet of the subject site may count toward the required vegetative screen.
