Variance Review Criteria

A. By reason of exceptional narrowness, shallowness or shape of a specific piece of property, topographic conditions or other extraordinary and exceptional situation or condition of the piece of property, the strict application of the regulation would result in peculiar and undue practical difficulties for, or peculiar and unnecessary hardship on, the owner of the property; and

B. The extraordinary and exceptional situation or condition on the property that is stated as the reason for the proposed variance is not self-imposed; and

C. The proposed variance complies with the purpose and intent of the standard to be varied and generally observes the spirit of the Zoning Ordinance; and

D. The proposed variance will not substantially impair the appropriate use or development of adjacent property; and

E. The proposed variance is the minimum variance that will afford relief with the least modification possible of this Zoning Ordinance; and

F. The proposed variance is the minimum variance that will afford relief if a design requirement cannot be met.

Comments From The Public
This case is closed, see hearing results above.

I do believe that this will adversely impact the use of my property. My tenant is already talking about vacating the residence where she has been farming goats for years. 7650 West 10th is adjacent to the drive thru lane and it is a farm property where the goat milk is consumed by people. I'm worried about idoling car pollution, loud radios, and noise getting worse for our farm. I'd like to remain involved in discussions on this.

As an addition to our earlier comment, we believe vegetation (taller trees) and a decorative 8' wall along the west side of the property line with 7650 West 10th could be helpful. The plan in general looks good as long as we get those protections from noise and pollution added.
