Mr. Anthony Rossi 516 Broadway Everett, MA 02149
The applicant seeks to convert the existing 2 family residence built approximately in 1970 into a 3-family residence. No exterior alterations or alterations to the existing parking configuration are proposed. The property is located in Dwelling District
Permit was denied in accordance with the City of Everett Zoning Ordinance Appendix Part II as follows:
Zoning and Violations:
– Section 4 (A) – conversion to a three-family use is not permitted if the structure was built after the city adopted its first Zoning Ordinance in August 1926. A use variance is required.
– Section 4 (B)(2)(c)-all uses other than one-family and two -family dwellings require a floor area ratio of no more than .50. The property is already nonconforming as to lot area, as it contains on 3,800 s.f. of area, whereas 7,000 s.f. is required. The proposed conversion will increase the area nonconformity. A special permit is required under Section 3 (C).
– Section 17 (A)(2) requires two parking spaces per dwelling unit. The property is already nonconforming as to this requirement, as it contains only three spaces, whereas four are required. A special permit will be required to increase this nonconformity, pursuant to Section 3 (C) of the Ordinance. Alternatively, the applicant may opt in to the Transportation Demand Management provisions of Section 35 of the Ordinance.
