Public Notice

The Christiansburg Board of Zoning Appeals will hold a Public Hearing on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Room, Christiansburg Town Hall, 100 E. Main Street to receive comments on the following:


A request by John Sachs [owner – tax map nos. 527 – 30 – 35, 36] for a variance to the required front yard setback of Section 42-95 of Chapter 42 “Zoning” of the Christiansburg Town Code for property located at 230 Roundhill Drive, S.W.  in the R-1, Single-Family Residential zoning district.


Section 42-95 applies to minimum front yard setbacks for all structures and states: “Structures shall be located 35 feet or more from any street right-of-way which is 50 feet or greater in width, or, in the event that buildings are already constructed on the same side of the street in the same block, no new structure shall be closer to the street right-of-way line than a distance equal to the average of the distance to the street right-of-way of all existing structures in the same block on the same side of the street. This shall be known as the setback line.” The property currently has a detached carport located approximately 12 feet from the Roundhill Drive, S.W. right-of-way and the requested variance is for a reduction of approximately 23 feet in the required front setback from the Roundhill Drive, S.W. right-of-way to allow the structure to remain in its current location. All other building setbacks would meet the requirements of the R-1, Single-Family Residential zoning district.
