A.  Request for variance of rear yard setback at 2033 Universe Dr., Winterset Woods Subdivision to allow for the construction of a covered patio within the setback.

The applicant, Dallas Dover, spoke and stated his request is to extend setback 10 feet to allow for construction of cover patio.  He stated the design had been approved by the Winterset Woods HOA Architectural Review Board.  He stated there is green space behind his home and no public streets.  He stated the design is consistent with what other homeowners have built.

Mayor Alexander asked if neighbors are OK with request.

Mr. Dover replied yes that they had informed adjacent neighbors.

Chairman Ken Rucker asked for any comments from citizens in regard to the variance.  No comments were made in regards to the variance request.

Commissioner Tommy Dugger made a motion to approve the variance due to the uniqueness of the setback and that there is open space behind 2033 Universe Ct and no interference with any streets or houses.

Commissioner Wade Wakefield seconded it.
