>> mr. harris and commissioners we believe we have an agreement with the appellant and the only thing we would like to highlight to make sure we stress to the commission we would like to have the existing permit extended nil to july 31st, 2015, we believe we have an agreement how we incorporate what's been requested. >> do you have a written document not necessarily with the terms outlined. >> i'm told we will in 5 minutes. >> 5 minutes is good. >> anything else mr. hastings. >> thank you thank you for the opportunity to speak. >> commissioners it's in our court now what would you like to
do you want to wait and give them their 5 minutes or deliberate now. >> it makes sense to wait. >> items concluded - >> we could go ahead and deliberate and come to a conclusion and it's pend the receipt of the presentation if they need to do on both parties by reviewing the final thing and concurred it will be turned into a victory does that make sense madam clerk. >> i'd like rather not take a vote. >> i'll be prepared to do you want support the extension with the permit with the agreement it's reached by all parties.
>> madam president a question to the commission do you have concerns that i might want to us address before we deliberately to put in print. >> no, but i have a question. >> okay. >> how do you have a 5 dba over ambient with construction noise i don't see how it's possible that's in our standard contract. >> i'll express to the commission we're considering changing in our spifkdz we have more work of the nature coming down the pique your correct we we have difficulty in achieving that level of noise control so in future projects as we go forward we have several coming we'll be evaluating that standard. >> understand the police department and health department
take on ambient noise and what is allowed between unit and things like that we've had a lot of cases a dealing with that. >> it is probably behoves our department to not have something that is so restrictive you can't met but have the mitigations in place to be able to resolve an individual case by case what might be needed and so noted we'll be obtaining confidence. >> mr. duffy would recycle to any public comment? say joe duffy my name is on every issuances but the construction bid the actual and
5 decimals over the ambient you can work 5 decimals above ambient in section 29 maybe dpw rules are different that's not a lot of noise you're right about that >> requires a night noise permit but this is actually a workshop in the city with all departments police and fire and dpw and mta working on this it is a very, very lutz a public issue with a lot of we do almost of - a lot of good things with outreach i'll say we had the same problem with the back up larmdz that's all people complain about the white noise left arms are making a big
difference not many more complaint to hopefully, the same specification i thought i'd give my opinion. >> are we waiting for a document? no? >> i'm going to suggest we move along. >> we'll hold this case out and move on to the next item item 9 sand hill versus the zoning administrator on hayes protesting to bryan a letter of the determination regarding whether commercial uses are allowed in the remain garages and parking in the backyard. >> you have 7 minutes. >> good evening. i'm niles we represent sun hill the property owner of the residential property next
to the property next to the determination holder it is a residentially zoned property i should say near st. mary's hospital all the uses discuses in the papers in this case are used that happen on our property and 7, 8, 9 next door neighbors property the issues are parking and garbage collection to store garbage nicole the parking is simply a function of the people working at our medical building pulling in parking their car and going to work leaving this is there's no members of the public coming in or intensive use of the parking of customers or patient the use is
no different than that thought determination holders that also park in the back area this is an tension or exception of loud neighboring property that is arranging owned outcomes my clients use of the basement mirrors the determination holders use of the basement there are apologize benefits the black blue green benefits we all use and paper and trash we just store it there not anything inner unintensive or different than the use there so what our concern is that the zoning administrator is making determination where the uses and the intensive of uses are
exactly the same but the determination is being bans who is doing the use and we feel this is just improper and we would ask you to overturn the letter of determination from the zoning administrator. >> thank you. >> hear from the determination holder. >> good evening members of the board alex on behalf of brian and cleveland owners of 2144 hayes street the property in question i have a photo here that might be useful okay. so it's late in the agenda i'll make my comments briefly as you can see the building on the right is the front this is the front door of
my clients building here and this building here is the appellants building actually both of those buildings are my clients use the building as their primary and permanent residents the appellant uses they're building for medical offers or their tenant use the building for medical offends and other relate businesses those medical offices are using my clients backyard for the parking and the garage for the vehicle refuge you'll see the overhead this is my clients building right here there's a small driveway and those two building are the commercial builds that are using this entire area as a parking lot the
garage is kind of off the driveway. >> where's the property like that. >> i need a pen actually, the property line goes all the way back. >> on the space of our clients building. >> so the property line i believe my clients own the derivative yeah. this is the driveway right here going as all the way back to this line this is the essentially the property line so okay. so the appellant is using my clients by way of of easements they agree that the uses of my clients property are inconsistent with the zoning decision as you know the appellant has the burden of
demonstrating the zoning administrator has record or abused his creation would be an arbitrary misuse we believe the appellant has failed to do so in the set of laws commercial uses are not allowed in the residential zoning as stated so the appellant claimed the zoning administrator violated their constitutional right to legal protection unstomach for a lingual and commercial use they claim their commercial use we obviously disagree i think that if this were true turn a century of you land use law on hitting its head the city can decide that a commercial use is inappropriate in some places and
appropriate in outside the so over the course the city can decide has it did here my clients residential garage and backyard may not be used for commercial storage and parking so we ask you, please uphold the decision thank you. >> question counselor how long have your property clients been at the property. >> how long have you guys lived that. >> a year every two. >> they need to come forward. >> hi i believe we purchased the property in 2014 and moved ♪ august or september >> my question would be what was the disclosure in regards to the space in the back. >> there was a disclosure but the reason why we find out about the easement is because
basically, the valid of the elicit in the disclosure passage the seller basically sent us corresponds saying they realized the easement were against the applicable laws that's the reason we knew about whether or not we should challenge those easements. >> mr. sanchez. >> thank you. good evening skooundz planning staff the subject letter was issued in response to a letter seeking clarification you first is it permissible under the applicable laws this is the commercial to store the trash cans at the subject properties garage and is
it applicable for the guest to use the backyard for parking in reviewing this and the material submitted by itself letter of determination requester we found no evidence that the parking at the rear nor any use of the building to store even though trash had been authorized by my city agency, in fact the information priority was a to the contrary an ongoing violation so with that information research from our starch we come to the conclusions there was no grandfathering in of the used for the subject property so we issued our decision this is before you this is a relatively straightforward matter the anticipate had the ability to submit any evidence that the parking garage in the required backyard rear yard or the space to store the trash it had mia
any permits to allow the use i did not see any materials in the brief so your conclusion remains the same we don't see the use of the garage for storage of trash is legal or authorized from the planning code i'm available for questions. >> a few coming mr. sanchez your chain of research did it go as far back as the original stone when it this building was built. >> that part of it certainly the zoning has changed over time and may be allowed over at some point about it was to the creaking contrary it was provided by i did letter of determination requester exhibit b in their materials referenced
to a conditional use that referenced actually a leg expansion of the parking at the rear of the property after the code changed i know we've had several rezoning 1960 from our first planning code to the second version that will wielded down to the residential property sometime at 1968 after the zoning change in 1960 an illegal expansion of the parking we didn't see did reported when we are be looking it historically given the fact the sand bar maps showed the extent of the parking we have this conditional use authorization which even is accrediting this as an enforcement issue is pretty
clear-cut. >> when was that building built. >> in the accessoryed office 1908 but from the photos some point that this was a major alteration i don't know what year that appeared around the same time as at adjacent builds but i don't have that date in front of of me. >> mr. sanchez at one point during your research b did the parcels connect. >> i don't have that information in front of me let's see if you can try to research that now but i don't see anything that jumped out. >> i mean when i glorification through my briefs earlier and they could have been but i don't
have the past block in front of me. >> okay. thank you. >> thank you. >> any public comment on this item? please step forward. >> hi, i'm holly b a r b a r e i live in the building next to the corner adjacent to it i wanted to input that it is very much a residential and were and commercial conflict with the residing there my building is old didn't have a lot of noise installation so things like the parking and such it has a large impact are you done. >> yes.
>> how long have you been at that property. >> 8 years. >> is there any additional public comment okay. seeing none then have rebuttal starting with the appellant. >> i don't really have a rebuttal only a point of clarification i think our property that there's some amount of share of the driveway some questions about the driveway it's a shared driveway that was used historically by the entire block the evening terror block they forfeited their right to use the driveway it is a small slice of the driveway thank you. >> we can have rebuttal from
the determination holders. >> no rebuttal. >> okay mr. sanchez. >> no? (laughter) >> so commissioners the matter is submitted. >> maybe i was getting used to us. >> you know this city also amazes me how the patterns of land use are always to interesting question here is perhaps maybe resolved on a legal and civil basis more than at this particular forum but the question. >>was the zoning administrator letter of determination an error
or i'll just say error because he would never abuse it sorry - and the question i think the answer to the question in my mind it that he didn't error he is correct in saying it is a fractured determination the zoning is residential and therefore i'm not supportive of the appeal >> i concur going over the material i just couldn't believe this has gone on without anyone saying anything i agree with the commissioners. >> motion. >> move to deny the appeal uphold the letter of determination on the basis that the zoning administrator did not error or abuse his position.
>> there's a motion on the floor from commissioner fung to huddle the letter of determination that the zoning administrator didn't railroad error or abuse commissioner adams commissioner honda commissioner wilson thank you the zoning administrator order is huddle on that basis thank you. >> okay. so we'll go back to item number 8 mr. halves please step forward madam president and commissioners we've reached an agreement with the appellant in the permit condition the only item outstanding was number 4 a contract showing a sold be it resolved back up left arms
previously stated a dba we've reached an agreement on the product is a d bs 82 that's the language in writing and the issue of replacing that with other method if necessary the next night is already incorporated. >> that's correct. >> okay. good thank you you made our job a little bit easier we would if there is further dislikes required no than that the appropriate motion to grant the appeal and uphold the permit to be extended to july 31st, 2014 and incorporation of noise
