A project requiring a special-use permit, one special-use permit revision and one variance are on the agenda at the Buncombe County Board of Adjustment meeting at noon Wednesday, July 12. The in-person meeting will be at the Board of Commissioners Chambers, 200 College St.
Information on how to attend and apply for comment can be found at avl.mx/anq. No email or voicemail comments will be accepted.
Both special-use permits are continued from the previous meeting in June.
QP Rathburn LLC of Newton, Mass., requests a special use permit to revise aspects of Phase II of the Level I Planned Unit Development Belle Meadow. The revised plans will include nine residential structures with 17 additional rental units over 1.99 acres of the 10.69-acre development.
Phase I of the development was approved in May 2022. Previous coverage in Xpress can be found at avl.mx/cql.
Project documents can be accessed at avl.mx/cqj.
Jonathan and Maria Pattavina of Fairview-based Pattavina Property Management LLC request a special use permit to have a four-unit, short-term rental complex over 1.55 acres. The two duplexes that house the units already have been approved for construction, and the two-unit duplex on the lower lot has been approved for short-term rental. The upper lot building has been approved for long-term rental. The current zone for the property is Open Use.
Project documents are available at avl.mx/cqk.
Leonard and Ellen Walker request a variance on a 0.33-acre property to change the front setback minimum requirement from 20 feet to 0 feet. According to the application, requiring an additional 20 feet of setback will make it more difficult to access the property, which is already 18 feet from the road. To meet steep slope requirements – the property has a slope of 47 percent — a switchback driveway would be required.
Eliminating the setback requirement will allow for the construction of a suitable residential driveway with minimal disturbance to the steep slope.
Project documents are available at avl.mx/csw.
