Notice is hereby given that the City of Sylvan Lake Zoning Board of Appeals will hold a public hearing on March 7, 2024, beginning at 5:00 p.m. or shortly after, at the Sylvan Lake Community Center, 2456 Pontiac Drive, Sylvan Lake, MI 48320.

The purpose of this hearing is to receive public comments on variance requests for 1630 Beverly Parcel 18-01-176-006.  A proposed 605 square foot (sf) uncovered deck on the lakeside front yard of the house requires two (2) variances.

Like most lakefront properties, the actual property (seawall) extends from 3’ to 9’ beyond the platted property line.  The information below indicates measurements and calculations using the property line as platted and found in the legal description.

Using the Platted Property line is required when reviewing and approving variance requests.

  • Front Yard Setback – Lakeside. Section 78-296. Area, bulk, height, and placement requirements require a 30’ front yard setback.  The proposed front yard setback to the new deck is 16.3’ requiring a variance of 13.7 feet.
  • Maximum Lot Coverage. Section 78-296 states the maximum allowable lot coverage is 35% of the total lot area.  The maximum allowable lot coverage for this lot as platted is 2,852.5 sf. (8,150 sf x .35).  The total lot coverage, including the proposed deck, would be approximately 39.6% (3,230 sf), requiring a variance of 4.6% (377.5 sf)
