Dausha Moore, Planner with the City, came forward and presented the Staff Report for this item and explained the request is for a variance to encroach into the side and rear yard setbacks to construct an accessory structure.  She explained that the applicant was unaware of the Zoning Ordinance setbacks upon purchasing the property, as the setbacks were not shown on the survey.  She said the applicant was not aware of the setbacks until he submitted his plans for permitting to the Building Department.   She further explained that the applicant indicated that a variance is necessary due to an existing anaerobic sewer system on the opposite side of the property.

Mr. Christiansen called for the applicant.  Mr. Donald Pearson came forward and reiterated his request then answered questions from Board Members.
