Document Description
Request to subdivide a 13,571± square-foot parcel into two parcels, 7,523± and 6,048± square feet in the Multiple Family Residential (R-3) zoning district. A Variance to the Zoning Ordinance is included in this request to allow for the creation of two parcels below the Multiple Family Residential (R-3) zoning district minimum lot-width of 65 feet. Proposed Parcel 1 will have a lot-width of 63 feet and proposed Parcel 2 will have a lot-width of 53.7 feet. The R-3 Zoning Ordinance, §21.36.050(D) requires a minimum lot-width of 65 feet for newly created parcels. The reduced lot-width for each proposed parcel is being requested in order to maintain the existing dwellings on the individual parcels. Both proposed parcels meet the minimum site area requirement of the R-3 zoning district (6,000 square feet) and are connected to public sewer and water facilities. Proposed Parcel 1 is improved with a 2,057± square-foot single-family dwelling and 280± square-foot detached garage and Proposed Parcel 2 is improved with a 1,171± square-foot single-family dwelling and 322± square-foot detached garage. The parcel is located within the LAFCO adopted Sphere of Influence (SOI) for the City of Modesto. The current parcel receives both public sewer and water services from the City of Modesto. Both proposed parcels have an existing driveway on each parcel and will have access from Kerr Avenue, a County-maintained road.
