RESOLUTION AFFIRMING A DECISION OF THE BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS TO DENY THE REQUEST TO REDUCE THE MINIMUM LOT SIZE REQUIREMENT FROM 5,000 SQUARE FEET TO 4,687.5 SQUARE FEET AND TO REDUCE THE MINIMUM FRONTAGE REQUIREMENT FROM 50' TO 37½' FOR THE DIVISION OF THREE LOTS INTO TWO SITES TO BUILD TWO NEW HOMES ON A SITE PRESENTLY USED FOR ONE HOME ON PROPERTY LOCATED AT 418 NORTH 51ST AVENUE WEST.
WHEREAS, Jeff Corey and the Northern Land Trust applied to the board of zoning appeals for a variance to construct two homes on a site presently used for one home reducing the minimum frontage requirement from 50' to 37.5' and the lot size requirement from 5,000 square feet to 4,687.5 square feet on property located at 418 North 51st Avenue West and legally described as Lots 7, 8 & 9, Block 187, West Duluth Seventh Division; and
WHEREAS, Jeff Corey and the Northern Land Trust have appealed the decision denying the variance to the Duluth City Council; and
WHEREAS, the city council has considered this appeal and determined that the facts of this case do not justify a reduction in lot size and property frontage requirements;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the city council of Duluth finds that there is no extraordinary or exceptional situation or condition pertaining to the piece of property in question which would render strict application of Chapter 50 of the Duluth City Code, 1959, as amended, thereto an exceptional or undue hardship upon the owner thereof or which would result in particular and exceptional practical difficulties thereto.
FURTHER RESOLVED, that said
city council affirms the board of zoning appeals' decision of May 23, 2000.
