S'side Board of Adjustment approves residential rebuild

The Sunnyside Board of Adjustment last night approved a conditional use permit request to rebuild a residence in a B-2 commercial zone.

During the public hearing held Wednesday night, the board tabled a second request to rebuild a burnt-out four-plex.

The board approved the request from homeowner Severiano Castillo, who is seeking to remove the existing residence located at 1011 E. Lincoln Ave. Castillo wants to replace the existing 775-sq. ft. house, built in 1931, with a new 1,025-sq. ft. home, complete with off street parking.

Saying Castillo will need to meet all R-2 residential codes, the board approved Castillo's request.

The public hearing was called to take comments about Castillo's request, but failed to draw any comments concerning his proposal.

A second citizen's request for a conditional use permit to rebuild a four-plex at the corner of Harrison Avenue and South Fifth Street was tabled by the board. The board agreed that more information was required before property owner John Dalrymple's request could be processed.

The property was destroyed in a fire and Dalrymple currently hopes to rebuild the housing unit in what is a B-3 commercial zone.

Dalrymple was unavailable Wednesday night to answer the concerns of the board. "I'd like to have more information about his plans for the project before issuing the permit," said board member Craig Miller.

The board agreed to table the issue until its July 27 meeting.
