Request: The applicant wishes to restore an existing home which was damaged by fire. The existing home is nonconforming with respect to front yard setback and the cost to restore the home exceeds its State Equalized Value (SEV). The Kentwood Zoning Ordinance requires that where the restoration costs of a nonconforming building or structure exceed its SEV the building or structure must be built in conformance with the requirements of the zoning district in which it is located unless the Zoning Board of Appeals permits the rebuilding or restoration of the building or structure. The request is for permission from the Zoning Board of Appeals to restore the home at its current location.
