Appeal #V-15-02

Applicant:                               Senna LLC
Location:                                 4455 Roger B. Chaffee Blvd., SE
Request:                                  The applicant wishes to construct a 9,375 square foot addition onto an existing industrial building.  The addition would have side yard setbacks of 9.8 feet from the north property line and 15 feet from the south property line and semi-trucks would need to back in off of the street in order to access the new loading docks.  Section 10.03.B of the Kentwood Zoning Ordinance requires a minimum side yard setback of 20 feet and Section 17.09 requires that there shall be provided and maintained on the lot adequate space for standing, loading or unloading services in order to avoid undue interference with street or parking areas.  The requested variances are for reductions of 5 feet and 10.2 feet to the required side yard setbacks and to allow for a site layout which requires semi-trucks to back in off from the street in order to access loading docks.
