Staff recommends that the City Council continue this public hearing to the
meeting of November 13, 2007.
At the meeting of September 25, 2007, City Council continued this item to
this meeting pending the submittal of an appeal of the Planning Commission’s
denial decision on a related variance (V 07-02) request for this property.
The anticipated variance appeal has been submitted and by separate action
the City Council is being asked to set the public hearing date for that
appeal for November 13, 2007. At the request of the appellant and as
indicated by the City Council at their September 25, 2007, meeting, it is
desired that both matters be heard by the City Council at the same meeting.
Therefore, staff has recommended this item be continued to the November 13,
Pulte Home Corporation is requesting approval of a variance on behalf of the
property owner (Randy Mass) from the required setbacks identified in Section
8.20.030.C of the Municipal Code for the pool and spa which it constructed
on the property at the time of the original construction of the model homes
for Brentwood Park. Swimming pools and spas are required to be setback a
minimum of 5 feet from the waterline to the property line. The specific
request is to allow the spa to encroach into the required setback 7.5”
(reducing the setback from 5’ to 4’-4.5”) and the pool to encroach into the
required setback 1’-2” (reducing the setback from 5’ to 3’- 10”).
