A report from Zoning Administrator Randy Perry was read which explained that variance from Section 5.07(1) of the Barton Hills Village Zoning Ordinance is necessary to allow construction of the proposed attached garage in front of the front line of the house Mr. Perry also mentioned the side set back; Board members agreed that the structure would not protrude in the set back and that the driveway was allowed to under the Ordinance.
