NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
James Ming Feng has submitted a Minor Exception application, requesting to construct a new two-story, 2,114 square foot single-family dwelling unit with an attached garage at the front of a lot where a legal nonconforming single-family dwelling exists. The existing single-family dwelling is nonconforming due to an existing 5’-2” side yard setback (minimum 7’-0” side yard required) along the north property line and an existing 19’-6” rear yard setback (minimum 20’-0” rear yard required) along the east property line. In addition, to meet off-street parking requirements, the applicant has proposed to revert a permitted bonus room back to its original use as a two-car garage. The granting of a Minor Exception is required before the Planning Commission for new structures constructed on a lot where nonconforming structures exist. The site is located at 3322 Rockhold Avenue (APN: 5288-016-007), in the Light Multiple Residential (R-2) zone.
