Suggested Action:
recommendation
I move that the City Council authorize the Mayor to provide correspondence to the Prince George's County Board of Zoning Appeals in support of V-98-21, a variance request to validate three (3) existing conditions pertaining to minimum lot size, lot frontage, and side yard depth at the subject property, 6213 43rd Avenue, Hyattsville.
end

Summary Background:
The applicant, Metropolitan Building and Development Corporation, has applied to the Prince George's County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) for a zoning variance to validate three (3) existing conditions pertaining to minimum lot size, lot frontage, and side yard depth.

The subject property includes an existing single-family detached residential structure and is zoned R-55 (One-Family Detached Residential) and is located in City Council Ward 1. The subject parcel is also located within the 2004 approved Gateway Arts District Traditional Residential Neighborhood (TRN) Character Area, per the Gateway Arts District Sector Plan, R-55 zoned properties in the TRN character area within the incorporated limits of the City of Hyattsville are exempt from the development standards and will abide by the requirements of the R-55 zone.

The applicant had originally submitted a companion variance (V-97-21) for the undeveloped adjacent property, 6211 43rd Avenue, with the intention of building a single-family dwelling. That variance application has been withdrawn.

Next Steps:
The BZA conducted a hearing on the matter on November 17, 2021, but at the request of the City, has held the record open until the City Council had an opportunity to review and comment on the application. The BZA will issue a decision at its next scheduled hearing.
