Consider Resolution for a Variance Request for the Property 1700 Wall Street Road.

Action Requested:
The Zoning Board of Appeals is requested to consider and make a motion for the property, 1700 Wall Street Road, to exceed the maximum square footage of 864 sq. ft. for garages up to 1,006 sq. ft.

Summary Report:
The applicant, Streeter Custom Building (on behalf of the Sonja Holden Revocable Trust) have applied for a variance request to exceed the maximum 864 sq. ft. footprint for garages at 1700 Wall Street Road.

The property owner purchased the home in 2020 and have plans to renovate the home and add on additional space for their family, to include a partial second story on the existing footprint. The parcel is zoned N1: Neighborhood General 1 and is part of the Remes 2nd Addition. The lot size is 0.90 acres, 39,308 sq. ft. and is irregular shaped and backed up to the Northfield Golf Course on the northeastern edge of town (southwest of Wall Street Road and Rosewood Road).
