depay attention we need to know what the applicant says it's 26 hundred feet we're approving something we don't have the ability to see the size. if we're praying the drawing the number doesn't allow us to understand what we're approving. i hope as the commission will be revising or looking at its rules and regulations i hope we as a department the residential design team will give a more consistent message for people who come to us with the larger and smaller projects to avoid what we've seen today. we're only asking for better

3:03 am
completely different thing it's legal listing something that's there so the plan is completely different. >> please continue. >> item 17. at 259 a request for discretionary review this is an abbreviated discretionary review >> good afternoon, commissioners in the a discretionary review to legal liza desk on 2151 barring let located in the midgets strict this murders approximately 2 hundred square feet of desk area. you have the case report materials and at this time staff has nothing further to add the project was reviewed but he remain design team that noted in the dr are not usually and it's
3:04 am
the departments position it doesn't create any extraordinary six and the department recommend it be approved. if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer them. >> dr requester. >> go ahead and start talking. >> good afternoon, commissioners i'm shawn. i live at barring let street and my bedroom window is 5 feet from the proposed deck and it allows the occupant to see me sleeping.
3:05 am
referred to as the view. >> thanks. this is the view from the deck to my bedroom you also have it in your packet. second page in the deck shows the plan of where the roof questioning is in proximity to the neighboring property being my property. when the barring let property was remodeled two years ago it was never approved for a deck. and despite my former complaints that was built anyway. he asked me if i opted it i said, yes. the current occupants bought the
3:06 am
building knowing it didn't have a deck. partner had a discussion. i have the documents here the follow-up letter to speak to some information. since that time in 2011 despite my disencouragement the current resident added railings and built in furniture and plants this has been going on for two years and it looks directly into my bedroom window. please don't allow them to put a deck outside my bedroom window. let's review this so it won't be so invasive.
3:07 am
>> there any speakers in support of the dr requester? okay project spokesperson you have 5 minutes. >> my name is chris i'm the owner on bartlett street it was asked for me to show some paperwork so regarding this roof area that's been converted into a deck. the pit wall had been raised loirg for the proper space and it was legally required. in terms of the work we put down a surface it was a proposal it's
3:08 am
not increasing the footprint we've got photos. we know that there's a concern about privacy that's been made dauntingly clear. this is after hearing the request for privacy we invested some planters along the line so there would be a privacy screen. it was for on ero own benefit but so he could have a private area. so it's not the best thing but it's a simple thing we want a deck baits it's the executive deck area four folks have a
3:09 am
generated and we have the possibility of a deck. we want to enjoy the backyard. we have 5 letters in support and their curiosity neighbors. there's opinion. we've done what we can and it's a city we live next to each other and any concern about the bedroom for all tints and perspires that mirrors can look into his kitchen so there's a privacy concern we live in a city and need to find a way to live amongst ourselves. we really want it t a place to go outside and enjoy the sunlight. >> thank you speakers in support
3:10 am
of the project sponsor? >> if there are no speakers in support then you can have rebuttal. >> yeah. i think we do live in the city we all know that. sometimes, it gets tight spaces spaces and i think what to move this along i am willing - rather than in your paychecks where you see the full length of the side of the building an option might, looking at some sort of
3:11 am
continuums where the deck is at the back of the house. that would be my rebuttal. >> okay project sponsor you have a 2 minute rebuttal. >> i appreciate there being some option for compromise. this is how we consider how we can be receptionist full of each other. i feel like we've visited properly and it's pleasing. i want to reiterate we have 5 letters we're pretty consider e
3:12 am
considerate. okay. the public hearing is open to commissioners >> i want to respond to sxhrnds opinion. we're legal listing the roof-deck what did the original application envision in that place that's a question i didn't see anywhere in the report. the thing i don't know is the plans as they stand don't show how the deck is educated does someone crawl out a window. and what about the common building is that the day i
3:13 am
assume everyone needs to agree to the common areas of the building where the spaces have to be approved by the interior association or whatever the appropriate word it here. if the landlord may have to approve a deck in this particular location. and what is legal or what are we leg legalizing. >> i may answer that. this is complicated permit. the first permit didn't show any deck on this roof it only showed the par pit and this was approved over the counter. they came back to put the deck
3:14 am
on the roof. we wouldn't sign off it was to be signed off over the creditor we did not and put an n a and dbi issued that permit. subsequentially it was built with the permit and that didn't come to us. that's where the discrepancy occurred. they were issued a violation and now it was a series of permits one of which didn't come back to us and a at this time we realized it wasn't legal under the planning code >> the follow-up by mistake ca was it not come back back to you. >> no it was approved over the
3:15 am
counter no routing. >> commissioner antonini. >> it sounds like even though planning had suggested that there are not be a permit the issuing dbi still could issue it. >> i think there was just a mistake. they didn't realize it noted to come to planning so it's a preschooler mistake so, now we have a situation where we have a d r because i'm assuming it's not a continual use it's something that would have been permitted and might not have come to us unless it was a dr request
3:16 am
>> right. >> it sounds like this is something that planning is willing to approve even the route we got there was a complicated one. >> yes. this is somewhat similar to a deck you had in july it was built without a permit and had it been properly routed to us through would have been the same opportunity for d r but it was issued by dbi. it's code compliant and it's before you because the defendant r is written >> it's not entirely the fault of the project sponsor he was preceding on what he was told he could do. i don't really see the extraordinary circumstances
3:17 am
we've got a 4 foot between the bedroom and the roof-deck it's 5 feet in this one area so it's not directly across but it's at an angle but the picture shows the ability for someone on the deck to a lot into the bedroom. i live in a single first name home on the western side of attain u town and there's restrictions and you look out one of the bedrooms and usually we've got the shufrts closed. so it's one of those things urging to deal with so i don't have any problem with this rae i don't see any reason to take dr
