OCTOBER 20TH  @ 6 PM –  PUBLIC HEARING – COACH HOUSE INFILL-
1186 DUCHESS AVENUE


An application has been made to add a Coach House onto a 33 ft. lot where the existing house has already been built out to the maximum allowed Floor Area Ratio*(FAR).  Initially Coach Houses were allowed to be built on lots where the existing structure did not exceed the FAR.* The addition of a Coach House on this particularly small lot requires spot rezoning.
