My husband and I own a duplex near downtown Delray Beach. We are surrounded by other multi family properties on our street. My husband and I were discussing building another unit on our property (yes, there is room), but I just got off the phone with a lady in the city zoning department that explained all these multi families were grandfathered in and it is now zoned single family. Does anyone have any experience with re-zoning in a situation like this? Is it even possible, or are there any other ways?
Thanks in advance
Not likely. If your property already has the max units allowed under the zoning, or even more than currently allowed due to grandfathering, you will Not get a zoning variance for additional units. However, if your is actually large enough to subdivide it into two lots, you could build whaTenerife is currently allowed. The problem will likely be enough room, set back side yard requirements for the current structure and the new proposed one. I did a subdivision on two SFR's on a single parcel but had plenty of room.
Good to know. Thanks Wayne! I'll check into that option!
