Thompson property
The Holmes Beach board of adjustment will consider a request for a side-yard setback at Patricia Thompson's property fronting 36th Street and Fourth Avenue. The request will be heard at 9 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 26, at city hall.

The Holmes Beach Board of Adjustment will consider a variance request for a side yard setback for Patricia Thompson's property at 100-108 36th St. at its 9 a.m. meeting Thursday, Aug. 26.

Acting as Thompson's agent, Patrick McConnell will present the request for a 10-foot setback on the ground and first level of living space and 15-foot setback on the second floor of living space.

The Holmes Beach Land Development Code contains provisions allowing a variance to be granted to property owners with buildings or structures on property that fronts more than one street, provided that one street is a dead-end.

Thompson's property fronts Fourth Avenue and 36th Street, which is a dead-end street.

The property consists of two cottages built in the 1940s, a ground-level house built in the 1950s and a duplex built in the 1990s.

Plans for the property include renovating the existing duplex and house, removing the cottages and adding a new fourplex, which will all become condominiums. The proposed buildings are not expected to occupy more than 30 percent of the property, according to the application.
