From UHNA NPU-D Rep Eva Nason;
Regarding the boarded-up property on Davis Cir. with the variance sign in front of it, this involves an application to be heard at the Dec. 7 Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) Hearing requesting that the frontyard set-back requirement be waived in favor of letting a new house be built using the same set-back that existed for the old house because of the size and shape of the lot. There was a lot of discussion of the matter in particular as regarded the saving of the existing large trees. The residents of the Davis Cir. community were included in this discussion preliminary to a vote being taken at the November 28 NPU-D meeting as to whether to approve this variance application. When it was realized that the building of the proposed house more to the front of the lot, which would be allowed by this reduced frontyard set-back - that this would be conducive to saving the trees, the general sense then was to approve this variance at the NPU-D meerting, which was done. As said, there is a public hearing about this matter on Thursday, December 7 at the BZA Hearing at City Hall.
