P & Z minutes 12/18/2014
Upon a request for clarification from Mr. Shenkman regarding signage, the
applicant responded that signage details have not been determined.
ACTION:
Motion was made by Mr. Harris and seconded by Ms. Partridge to approve
the site plan modification in accordance with the submitted site plan
excluding signage and subject to staff conditions.
Mr. Meachum questioned the accuracy of the submitted site plan and the
fact that the applicant has not determined signage criteria.
The applicant’s architect addressed the Board and stated that the site plan
submitted is a general representation of the planned project and the criteria
for signage will be followed.
Upon a question from Mr. McConnell regarding the prospect of another
doorway being established to allow the handicapped parking to be moved
further east, the applicant’s architect responded that there will be new doors
installed but the doorways will remain on the Gulf Boulevard side but that
there has been discussion pertaining to moving the handicapped parking
further east.
Upon a statement by Mr. McConnell in which he asked that if the approval
was of the present configuration or a similar configuration which permitted
the handicapped parking further to the east, could that be done without the
submission of a new site plan, the CI Director responded that this could be
included in the motion if the first and second person’s agreed to amend the
motion.
Mr. Harris stated that since he made the original motion he has no objection
to the idea of the modification of moving two spaces easterly and if this is
possible it could be included in his motion.
Further discussion included statements by the Chair that the modification
would be according to code and from Ms. Partridge indicating that perhaps
one of the windows could be made into a door. Mr. McConnell stated that the
reconfiguration is not a requirement but that the applicant is permitted to
reconfigure if allowed by code without presenting a new site plan.
The Chair then asked Mr. Harris if this is how he wishes to amend his motion
and Mr. Harris responded that it is and Ms. Partridge agreed.
Further discussion ensued with Mr. Yost requesting clarification regarding
the eastern alley as it is indicated on the plans and the CI Director
responded that the alley in question is privately owned.

P & Z minutes 12/18/2014
The discussion then continued with Mr. Shenkman and Mr. Butler expressing
a concern with the parking requirements if an eating establishment were to
be a new tenant and were informed by the CI Director that parking
requirements are a City Commission decision.
Mr. Meachum than wished to confirm that the motion about to be approved is
the site plan modification as proposed with the exception of signage and a
caveat that if the owner wished to move the handicapped spots to the east
they may do so without again coming before the Board.
For clarification, the amended motion as agreed by Mr. Harris and Ms.
Partridge reads: to approve the site plan modification in accordance with the
submitted site plan excluding signage and subject to staff conditions and
recommendations and to include the caveat that if the owner wished to
modify the handicapped parking spots there would be no need for a new site
plan to be presented to the Board.

ACTION:
Motion was made by Mr. McConnell and seconded by Ms. Partridge to
approve the variance request as presented specifically and only for the
creation of the water feature. Noted that the proposed encroachment will not
block anyone’s view, this is a landscape water feature, it is not a swimming
pool or an accessory structure. The minimum setback should not apply to
this improvement. The 2010 Florida Building Code does not regulate this
structure as a pool because it is not 24 inches in depth. Since this is not a
swimming pool the minimum setback should not apply to this water feature.
Upon roll call the vote to approve the variance request was 11 ayes and 1 nay
(Mr. Lorenz the dissenting vote).
The Board recessed at 4:25 pm.
The Board reconvened at 4:30 pm.

Herron’s Sub, No. 8, Lot 25
Parcel #:
25-31-15-38448-000-0250
BACKGROUND:
The structure was built in 1941. The subject structure is 2 stories in height and non-FEMA
compliant. Also on the site is a detached, semi-finished structure approximately 300 square feet
in size located close to the seawall. This accessory structure is also non-FEMA compliant
This lot previously held a local business tax receipt for 3 dwelling units. The detached semifinished structure served as one unit and the 2-story house provided for 2 units. The rental of
units ended in 2008.
The applicant purchased this property in May 2013. The applicant proposes to remove all of the
illegal construction from the rear of the 2-story house. The illegal construction includes the
balcony, porch area, and staircase. Due to water damage and deterioration, the applicant
needs to reconstruct the existing rear wall of the residence. He will also establish a structurally
safe, open 2nd floor balcony on the rear. There are also structural changes that he wishes to
make to complete the conversion from a 2-unit structure to a single family structure. While it is
not rented or used as a 2-family structure, the interior alterations of the structure were never
completed.
STAFF ANALYSIS – VARIANCE REQUEST:
1.
The variance is in fact a variance as set forth within the Land Development Regulations
and within the province of the Planning and Zoning Board based upon the opinion of the
City Manager or his designee.
The variance being requested is set forth within the Land Development Regulations and
under the purview of the Planning and Zoning Board.
2.
Special conditions or circumstances exist which are peculiar to the building, structure, or
land for which the variance is sought and do not apply generally to buildings, structures,
or lands in the same district.
Section 68-431, Schedule of lot and bulk regulations describes the dimensional
requirements of the RM-15, Residential Medium District.
The restrictions and controls intended to regulate the property development characteristics of
each zoning district are set forth in the following schedule of lot and bulk regulations
supplemented by other sections of this chapter:

The subject lot is 50 feet x 90 feet. The lot is 4500 sq. ft. This is the minimum area for an
RM-15 lot. The applicant proposes to make improvements to the 2-story structure to
better establish its use and function as a single family home. In making those
modifications, it is appealing to the applicant and designer to “square off” the house by
allowing the side wall to be the same width for the entire structure rather than inset
toward the rear of the building.
3.
Strict application of the provisions of the land development regulations would not permit
the applicant reasonable use of the building; structure, or land.
A literal interpretation of the Land Development Regulations continues to provide the
property owners’ full use of the subject site with a habitable structure and an outbuilding
in the rear waterfront yard.
4.
The peculiar conditions and circumstances existing are not the result of the actions of
the applicant, the applicant’s agents, or the applicant’s predecessors in title.
There were a number of actions by predecessors in title that influenced the layout of the
living structure, the number of rental units on the site, and the unpermitted balcony and
porch areas at the rear of the 2-story structure. Lack of attention to maintenance has led
to the deteriorated condition of the rear and side wall where the applicant is seeking to
align with the existing exterior wall of the structure.
5.
The variance proposed to be granted is the minimum variance that will make possible
the reasonable use of the building, structure, or land.
The variance is being requested for a small addition into the side yard (toward the rear
portion of the house) to align with the existing side wall. The proposed addition will
provide for 18 square feet on the 1st floor and 18 square feet on the 2nd floor.
The minimum variance would be zero feet because the house exists and functions
without any additional encroachment into the side yard.
3
6.
Owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement would result in unnecessary hardship.
Special conditions to be considered pursuant to this section of the land development
regulations shall include, but not be limited to, the following circumstances:
 Redevelopment. If the proposed project involves the redevelopment or utilization
of an existing developed or partially developed site.
 Substandard Lot(s). If the proposed project involves the utilization of an existing
legal nonconforming lot(s).
 Neighborhood Character. If the proposed project promotes the established
development pattern of a block face, including setbacks, building height, and
other dimensional requirements.
 Public Facilities. If the proposed project involves the development of public parks,
public facilities or public utilities.
 Architectural and/or engineering considerations. If the proposed project utilizes
architectural and/or engineering features that would render the project more
disaster-resistant.

7.
Redevelopment – Applicable. The applicant wishes to remodel the 2-story
structure with permits to ensure it is a functional, safe single family house
Substandard Lot(s) – This property is not substandard for the RM-15 district.
Neighborhood Character– The character of the neighborhood will not change
as a result of this variance. The encroachment is no greater than currently exists
in the side yard.
Public Facilities – Not applicable
Architectural and/or engineering considerations – The proposed
improvement will not provide for a more disaster-resistant dwelling unit. The
improvement will remove unpermitted construction and deteriorated walls which
exist currently.
The granting of the variance will be in harmony with the general purpose and intent of
this chapter.
The use of the property as single family is in conformance with the zoning and
future land use assignment for the property. The location of the site is residential
in character. Formerly as a 2-unit structure, this 2-story building was considered
a non-conforming use.
The reduction of north side yard setback from 7.5 feet to 3.83 is less than the
smallest side yard setback of 5 feet permitted within the City of Treasure Island.
8.
The granting of the variance will not be injurious to the neighborhood or otherwise
detrimental to the public welfare.
It is unlikely that granting this variance will be injurious to the neighborhood. The
side yard is already partially blocked by an existing side wall of the structure. The
newly proposed addition aligns with that same exterior wall. No greater
encroachment occurs in the side yard; however this action is considered an
extension of any existing non-conformity on the site.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends DENIAL of the variance request to reduce the north side yard setback from
7.5 feet to 3.83 feet to install an addition. This variance will increase the living area 18 sq. feet
on both the 1st floor and 2nd floor and allows for the alignment with the existing side wall of the
house based on the following:

This is a self-imposed hardship.

This variance request constitutes an extension of any existing non-conformity on the site.
Should the Planning and Zoning Board wish to APPROVE this request for a variance to reduce
the north side yard setback from 7.5 feet to 3.83 feet to provide for an addition; the approval
would be based on the following:

The proposed encroachment will not block anyone's view.
encroachment of the same width in the same side yard.
There is already an
Conditions for approval:

The applicant shall complete the conversion of the 2-story structure to a single family
house through interior modifications which brings this use into conformity with the land
use and zoning assignments.

The applicant shall remove the illegal construction currently attached to the rear of the 2story structure to provide for a safer building.

Upon conclusion of this renovation, there shall only be one Duke Energy electric meter
on the site and the existing 220V power supply to the accessory structure must be
removed.
CASE PZ 2015-12V

VARIANCE APPLICATION
FOR ADDITIONS
TO THE
Dybul Residence
318 Bay Plaza
Treasure Island, Florida 33706
NARRATIVE STATEMENT
1. The Owner of this property is requesting an approval of a variance to the RM-15, side yard setback regulations, to
allow for a side yard setback encroachment (1st & 2nd floor) from 7.5 ft. to 3.83 ft. The total encroachment will be
no more than 18 sq. ft. (each floor) and will align with the existing side walls of the residence as shown on
attached Proposed Site Plan (2/C1). The addition will not encroach more than the current building encroachments
and will maintain a clear access path that the side yard currently has. The lot size is 50' wide x 90' deep, with an
area of 4,500 sq. ft.
2. The existing main residence currently encroaches into the side yard setback. By aligning the new addition with
the existing side wall, we will be keeping the building in square and also aligning existing roof lines continuously
to match the existing architectural design of the residence. The existing rear walls of the residence (interior &
exterior) appear to be dilapidated and neglected, leading to extensive water damage, in addition to substandard
construction methods. By allowing for the addition, the new walls will be constructed to meet and exceed all
building code requirements for hurricane and moisture distresses to the structure, (see attached existing photos of
residence)
3. Since the existing main residence already encroaches into the side yard setback, and by following the current side
yard setback regulations, the new addition will have to step towards the interior of the lot. This would create the
addition to not align with the existing structure and would make it out of square, resulting in a difficult structural
solution with roof and walls not matching the existing shape and architectural design. Furthermore, the interior
uses for each room would create greater non-functioning spaces than currently exists.
4. The existing building does not meet the current setback regulations, therefore these conditions are not a result of
the actions of the applicant or agent.
5. We believe this variance request is the minimum required to help develop and maintain the architectural features
to the rear of the existing residence, without imposing any sight restrictions to neighboring properties. By doing
so, we are aligning with the existing side wall and encroaching no more than 5 ft. past the existing rear wall (18
sq. ft. max.)
6. Special conditions:
a. This property currently has (3) separate meters. With approval of the variance request, we will be
converting this property to a single family use to follow the required zoning regulations and reduce the
number of meters from 3 to 1. In addition, we are removing the existing 220V power supply that
currently feeds the existing detached frame structure in the rear. We are also removing the south side
entrance and steps into the residence, resulting in a front and rear entrance to follow single family home
design patterns. Furthermore, we will also be eliminating the existing rear wood balcony, roof, stairs and
1st Floor covered and open deck areas since they were not permitted and are determined to be in conflict
with the addition and not structurally sound to meet or exceed current building code regulations. By
taking these actions, our intention is to bring the entire property in compliance with a single family use,
and have no resemblance of a multi-family use.
b. The existing building was constructed by previous setback regulations which are not relevant to current
setback regulations. Therefore, in order to construct an addition, a variance would be required to align
with the existing building and make it structurally square.
c. The existing neighborhood has many non-conforming structures in this zoning district, ie: rear and sides
of buildings not meeting the required setbacks. Furthermore, there are neighboring seawalls that encroach
past the property line that raise question.
d. This is not a public project.
e. As stated above, this project has been designed to meet the existing architectural style and structural
design by aligning and squaring off with the existing side wall of the residence.
7. The granting of this variance will be in harmony with the intent of the code in order to provide relief to structures
with hardships, while at the same time develop an attractive architecturally and structurally designed home.
8. The granting of this variance will enhance the character of the neighborhood and we feel the addition will not be
detrimental to the public welfare since all the work is being constructed in the rear of the property which is
consealed by fences and not accessed by the public.
We ask for your thoughtful consideration of this variance request, as we feel that it will have little or no adverse effect to
the neighboring properties or the city, as well as, stay within the neighborhood character and architectural style of the
building. It will also bring the entire property in compliance to a single family use as described in detail in section (a.)
Special Conditions.
