Project Description

The proposed project is for the reduction of the Setback along Croft Ave. (Highway 2)  from 20’ (foot) to 5’ (foot) .

The proposal is for the consideration of a variance for a building permit for a proposed pole building  on Tax parcel # 00457502001300 within the City of Gold Bar.  The building is proposed to be placed in the southern portion of the lot with the bay door access from within the lot rather than from Croft Ave.

WSDOT encourages access from other than Croft Ave. Reduction in the  setback allows the building to be closer to Croft allowing access from north side.

The variance, if approved, will not constitute a grant of special privilege not enjoyed by the other properties in the area, and will be the minimum necessary to afford relief.
