I am writing to express my opposition to Variance Request A. This variance is asking to lessen the amount of distance that may be built upon, in relation to the edge of the property lines. The code is currently set at 25 feet. The applicant wants to lessen this distance to only 7 feet from the eastern property line, and 13 feet from the southern one. I fell that the requested distances are too close to the property border for building, especially the one requesting only 7 feet! I would like to express my opposition to those items, am fine with the requests from Variance B.

Remember as a kid asking for something from your parents but trying to ask them separately? I think CMBH2 is doing that. They didn’t get what they wanted from the ZAP so now they are asking the Board of Adjustment. This property was purchased in March 2021 by CMCBH2 Company LLC. Their initial zoning change request (C14-2021-0056) was opposed by the Matthews Lane Neighborhood Association (MLNA). With the assistance of Ann Kitchen’s office the MF-3 (and 14 homes) request was reduced …

M E M O R A N D U M TO: Mayor and Council DATE: January 14, 2022 FROM: Denise Lucas, Director, Development Services Department SUBJECT: Update on Resolution No. 20211014-045 – Board of Adjustment Applicant Assistance Program On October 14, 2021, City Council adopted Resolution No. 20211014-045 directing the City Manager to explore the creation of a Board of Adjustment Applicant Assistance Program (BAAP) for residential homestead applicants who are requesting a hardship variance or special exception. The resolution contemplates the creation of a BAAP fund to support fee waivers or reductions for applicants who meet the eligibility criteria; as well as pro bono assistance with navigating the application process and subsequent proceedings. To meet the requirements outlined in this resolution, staff is working with the Financial Services Department to identify a funding source. In addition, staff is working with the procurement office to develop a process to procure pro-bono legal services. Staff does not anticipate completing all the components of the Council direction until May 2022 at which time a full response will be provided. Should you have questions or need additional information, please contact Doron Silberstein, Equity and Inclusion Program Manager, at doron.silberstein@austintexas.gov or (512) 978-1732. cc: Spencer Cronk, City Manager Rodney Gonzales, Assistant City Manager

TO: FROM: DATE: SUBJECT: M E M O R A N D U M Mayor and Council July 27, 2022 Denise Lucas, Director, Development Services Department Board of Adjustment Applicant Assistance Program - Staff Response to Resolution No. 20211014-045 On October 14, 2021, City Council adopted Resolution No. 20211014-045 directing the City Manager to explore the creation of a Board of Adjustment Applicant Assistance Program (BAAP) for residential homestead applicants who are requesting a hardship variance or special exception. Staff have explored the creation of BAAP as well as a funding source. The staff focus for Board of Adjustment variance requests was narrowed to Residential Homestead Variances under a Zoning Variance or a Special Exception Variance. These are the two types of variance requests which cover the Council’s intended area of support. Based on previous variance request applications, staff anticipates 9 variance requests could be 100% financially supported each year at an approximate cost of $10,000 per year. The funding source for BAAP Fund for the financial support would come from the General Fund and would be budgeted each year. In addition, staff has identified an existing contract, managed by Austin Public Health, which will allow applicants access to pro-bono legal services. Collectively, the BAAP Fund will support fee waivers or reductions for applicants who meet the eligibility criteria; as well as pro bono assistance with navigating the application process and subsequent proceedings. Staff recommends creation of the BAAP Fund, which includes a recommended start date of October 1, 2022. Staff will await further direction from the City Council. If the Council adopts an action to create the BAAP Fund, staff will create the BAAP Fund program guidelines and will track program participants and outcomes for one year and report that information back to Council. Should you have questions or need additional information, please contact Doron Silberstein, Equity and Inclusion Program Manager, at doron.silberstein@austintexas.gov or (512) 978-1732. xc: Spencer Cronk, City Manager Anne Morgan, Acting City Manager J.
