Molnar Gate/Over-height Fence
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project proposes to permit the replacement of a previously existing chain link fence and gate with an over-height fence and gate that is within the 60-foot front yard setback (measured from the centerline of Sun Valley Road) and within the exterior side yard setback (15-feet from the edge of the easement of Echo Hill Lane). The fence and gate are approximately six feet tall and are a solid earth-tone brown color. The County Zoning Ordinance (Section 6708) allows an administrative permit to authorize exceptions to the fencing and gate requirements. This AD permit would authorize an exception for the fence to be six feet within the front and exterior side yard setback instead of 42 inches. It would also reduce the setback for the gate to be located as shown on the plot plan instead of being set back 10 feet from the edge of the easement. Since the fence/gate were already constructed, conditions are proposed to require the fence to be relocated onto the subject property and to ensure compliance with building code and fire district requirements. This site is subjected to the General Plan Regional Category Semi-Rural, Land Use Designation SR-2. Zoning for the site is Residential Single Family (RS).
