  • V – 12- 217   Ponce de Leon Terrace NE.  Applicant Magdalena Bach (on behalf of owner John Vertefeuille) seeks a variance from zoning regulations to reduce the west side yard setback from 7’ (required) to 3’8”.  A Planning Committee site visit on 1-7-13 revealed no concerns regarding the setback allowance or tree or runoff issues of concern. The Committee unanimously recommended approval at its meeting on 1-9-13, conditioned on site plans stamped and dated 12-19-12 and proof of notification of the standard eight adjacent owners. The committee recommended native plantings to absorb water from the area at the rear of the property above an intermittent stream; the stream enters an underground in a pipe immediately upstream (to the east), but the area is predictably wet. The applicant agreed to research and provide appropriate options to the owner.
