ITEM04/10 City of Austin Board of Adjustments c/o Elaine Ramirez City of Austin Development Services Department Re: 2913 Westlake Cove: Requesting: 1) partial setback reduction 75’ shoreline to 50’ (for width of 40’); 2) maintain 5’ side yard setbacks in lieu of 10’ required; 3) propose 48% IC in 0-15% slope (reduced from 54%) in lieu of required 35% IC in 0-15% slope Board of Adjustment Members: The proposed project seeks a mixture of setback variances to remedy a history of erroneous permit approvals and inspections approved by the City of Austin as a result of improper application information, incorrect AMANDA records for corresponding permit approvals, and to ultimately remedy the currently clouded title and non-compliant impervious coverage and setback encroachments resulting from 8-10 permit approvals and numerous subsequent building inspection approvals by the City of Austin over the span of a decade ranging from 2006 – 2017. The current requests would allow a remodel and addition to occur while reducing the various setback and impervious coverage compliance issues caused by a series of erroneous approvals. The following hardships are unique to the property and affect reasonable redevelopment: 1. The gross site area of the lot is 31,286 ft.² (.71 ac) per TCAD vs. lot size of 43,560 ft.² for LA zoning; 2. Lot 14 Lago Villa Addition issued Legal Tract Determination dating site to March 1982; 3. The lot is subject to a 75’ shoreline setback resulting in net site area of 18,928.ft²; 4. The 75’ shoreline setback is 8,595 ft.²; 5. The inundated land area is 3,763 ft.²; 6. The combined 40’ front and 10’ side zoning setbacks are 6,960 ft.²; 7. 0–15% slope category allows 35% maximum IC, or 6,154 ft.²; 8. Existing 0-15% IC = 9,491 ft.² , or 54% 9. Proposed 0-15% IC = 8,884 ft.² , or 47.5% 10. The rear portion HVAC erroneously approved within 75’ shoreline setback; 11. Portions of residence encroach into 10’ side setback as result of 2014 LDC code changes; 12. The site is further encumbered by several protected tree CRZ’s and required OSSF field; 13. The site is severely restricted given constraints beyond owner’s control. The proposed remodel / addition proposes to add a 2nd floor to portions of the existing 1st floor residence in order to allow for contemporary floorplan suited to aging owner’s mobility and overall use of property. The following (3) three variance requests are …
