RESOLUTION DENYING A VARIANCE FROM STREET IMPROVEMENT PROJECT STANDARDS FOR 30TH AVENUE EAST BETWEEN GREYSOLON ROAD AND SUPERIOR STREET TO ALLOW A 20 FOOT STREET WIDTH.

BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:
 
        BE IT RESOLVED, that the city of Duluth hereby denies a variance from application of street improvement project standards in order to allow construction of a street 20 feet wide for that portion of 30th Avenue East lying between Greysolon Road and Superior Street.

        This denial is based upon the following facts which have been determined by the council:
                (a)     The planning commission, after hearing, denied the application for a variance by a 9-3 vote;
                (b)     The findings of the planning commission as set out in its record of proceedings, which the city council hereby adopts;
                (c)     The wider street will be safer because there is more room for children, pedestrians, and vehicles to avoid collision.

        The record in this case consists of this resolution, proceedings of the council, and the planning commission file.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution denies an application for a variance from S.I.P. standards for the street area specified.
