BOARD/COMMISSION REVIEW:
Official notice for the public hearing for PZC 19-1-066 was published in the Daily Herald on July 1, 2019.

BACKGROUND:
The subject property is generally located on the east side of N. Eagle Street approximately 150 feet north of 13th Avenue and is zoned R1B (Medium Density Single-Family Residence District). The property is approximately 0.14 acres and is improved with a single-family detached structure. The house was granted occupancy in March of 2017. The petitioner, Bear Hoyer, constructed the enclosed porch and attached patio thereafter without a permit. City staff was notified as to the existence of the porch and patio during the review of a variance requested for similar improvements at 1331 N. Webster Street.

DISCUSSION:
As constructed, the existing porch and patio are setback approximately 18' from the rear property line. Per code, the porch must comply with the 30' rear yard setback required in the R1B district since it is enclosed. Per Section 6-2-3:3.2 of the Municipal Code, attached patios are permitted to encroach 10' into the rear yard setback.

Therefore, the petitioner is requesting approval of a variance from Section 6-2-3:3.2 and Section 6-6B-7:1 of the Naperville Municipal Code to allow the patio to encroach 2' into the 20' rear setback and for the enclosed porch to encroach 12' into the 30' rear yard setback. The porch is 14.5' deep by 12' wide. The patio is approximately 14.5' deep by 13' wide with a curve and smaller extension ending at the southern window well.
