Mr. Miller would like to improve his property by converting the existing <br /> front-loading garage into living space, adding on to the back of the home on both the main and <br /> second floor and constructing a new detached garage in the backyard. To access the garage, the <br /> driveway would need to be relocated from the north to the south side of the property and the <br /> new driveway would measure 10.5 feet wide. The minimum driveway width in Edina was 12 <br /> feet; a variance would be required for the project. <br /> Ms. Aaker noted that two Zoning Board of Appeals meeting have been held considering a <br /> driveway width variance, one on April 6, 2006, and again May 4, 2006, meeting, explaining that at <br /> the first meeting one of the board members voted against the request, but encouraged the <br /> property owner to decrease the width of the driveway and reapply. Mr. Miller followed this <br /> advice. Ms. Aaker said at the May 4, 2006, Zoning Board of Appeals meeting, two members <br /> voted in favor of the motion to approve the request and two members against. The motion was <br /> denied for lack of majority. Ms. Aaker reported that Mr. Miller, the property owner was <br /> appealing the denial of the 1'/2 foot driveway width variance to allow a driveway width of 10 1/2 <br /> feet. <br /> Page 1 <br />
