III.             Public Hearings

 

A.           Hold a public hearing and take action on HDC09-33 (Moses #3), a request for a Certificate of Appropriateness to expand an existing single-family residence on approximately 0.1 acres zoned “RSF-7-RNC” (Single-family residential with a minimum lot size of 7,000 square feet with a Residential Neighborhood Conservation Overlay), legally described as the northern 57 feet of Lots 11 and 12, Block 13 of the League City Townsites Subdivision, generally located north of East Main Street (Farm to Market Road 518) and west of Wisconsin Avenue with the approximate address being 307 Wisconsin Avenue.

Ms. Moore, Planner with the City, restated the staff report and explained the proposed extension of the applicant’s home would be a 630 square foot increase above the current 712 square feet bringing the home to 1,350 square feet.  The homes on Wisconsin Avenue have a front setback of 24 feet; the proposed porch of the home will reduce the setback from 24 feet to 18 feet.  The average rear setback on this block is approximately 5 feet which is allowed for within the Preservation Plan.  All the proposed setbacks meet the requirements with the exception of the porch.  Neighboring homes on this block do not have porches.  Ms. Moore further added that the proposed windows, doors and siding, which would match the existing home, are all within the Architectural Guidelines Regulations.

The Board discussed concerns regarding the lack of architectural details on the applicant’s drawing.  Ms. Moore referenced photos within the packet to describe the proposed exterior details.

            Ms. Hall opened the public portion of the hearing at 6:12 p.m.

Mr. Moses, applicant, came forward to answer questions from Board Members.  A discussion was held regarding the proposed exterior details.  Mr. Ruhl stated he would like to see a sketch drawing of exactly what Mr. Moses is proposing.  The Board further discussed potential conditions within the motion to require the applicant to submit drawings prior to an administrative approval.  

For the Commission’s consideration, Mr. Linenschmidt suggested the applicant seek assistance from the Building Department regarding the drawings as this is a habitable environment and will need to meet windstorm requirements.

Ms. Hall closed the public portion of the hearing at 6:23 p.m.

            Ms. Schroeder made a motion to approve HDC09-33 (Moses #3) with the stipulation that the applicant submit engineered drawings prior to an administrative approval.
