Berkeley Building Co. Alt Comp. 3495 E Girdner (A-2018-0179)E IDIANIZ,:--- June 6, 2018 10 _ I a rerf . e TIO MI Berkeley Building Co. 2275 S. Eagle Rd. Suite 185 Meridian, ID 83642 RE: 3495 E. Girdner Dr. Fencing - (A-2018-0179) Dear Mr. Krochmal: Mayor Tammy de Weerd City Council Members: Joe Borton Genesis Milam Ty Palmer Luke Cavener Treg Bernt Anne Little Roberts This letter is to confirm the Director approved your request for alternative compliance to Unified Development Code (UDC) 11 -3A -7C3 for the subject property based on the required Findings listed in UDC 11 -5B -5E, as follows: 1. Strict adherence or application of the requirements are not feasible; or The primary intent for the ten foot setback for fences 6 feet in height on corner lots is to provide a clear line of site for motorists turning the corner. The applicant is proposing a reduced setback for the existing fencing along the property owners' (Mr. and Mrs. Glosset) east property boundary. The southeast corner of the existing fence protrudes into the required IO foot side yard. The corner is situated such that the full setback is not necessary to provide adequate vision for motorists and/or the neighbor to the south (2799 S Nephrite Way). Additionally, the shape of the lot coupled with the edge of the house encroaching into the setback make adherence difficult. The proposed fence leaves approximately 6 feet eight inches of space between the curb and proposed fence. The Director finds strict adherence would require a decreased fence height at the current location and is feasible, but not desirable. 2. The alternative compliance provides an equal or superior means for meeting the requirements; and 3. The alternative means will not be materially detrimental to the public welfare or impair the intended uses and character of surrounding properties. The proposed (existing) fencing will not be detrimental to the public welfare or impair the uselcharacter of the surrounding properties. The existing and proposed fence will not affect visibility for motorists andlor the neighbor to the south. Community Development Department . 33 E.
