Request: Setback variance to allow a new carport to be 45 feet from the Highway 34 right-of-way (ROW) centerline, 5.5 feet from the ROW line and 30 feet from the front property line rather than the required 100 feet from the ROW centerline and 50 feet from the ROW line per Section 4.9.1. of the Land Use Code and to be 3.5 feet from the side lot line rather than the required 5 feet per Section 4.1.5.B.2.b.

Applicant/Owner: James & Carolyn Kuenzel - 2380 US Hwy 34, Drake, CO 80515
Development Services Team Recommendation: The Development Services Team recommends Approval of the Kuenzel Setback Variance File #14-BOA0971 subject to the following condition(s):
1. Failure to comply with any conditions of the Variance approval may result in reconsideration of the use and possible revocation of the approval by the Board of Adjustment.
2. All future additions or buildings that would be within setbacks as defined in the Land Use Code must go through the proper county review and planning process prior to construction. This may include additional variance requests for the above mentioned structures that do not have building permits or inspection approvals.
3. This approval shall automatically expire in one year unless the applicant takes affirmative action consistent with this approval.
4. After the applicant applies for a building permit but prior to foundation pour, the Larimer County Building Department must be provided with a written certification by a Colorado Licensed Land surveyor that the proposed structure is located where shown on the Larimer County approved Plot Plan for this Department.
5. The carport structure must be of an open type construction, with only a roof and supports, but no solid walls. The property owner may need to remove or relocate the structure in the future if CDOT desires to utilize their existing right-of-way and maneuverability into and out of the structure negatively affects that right of way.
