Petition Number: PLNPCM2022-00590

Zoning District: R-1-5000 Single Family Residential

Overlay District: Groundwater Source Protection

Recognized Organization District:  Wasatch Hollow Community Council

Russell Morley, the property owner, has submitted an application for a conditional use permit a new, detached Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) at 1331 South Emigration Circle in the R-1-5000 Single Family Residential. The new structure will be located to the rear of the home, in the northwest corner of the property (see site plan below). The proposed ADU’s livable area would measure about 400 SF in size with a total footprint of about 700 SF (this includes a proposed porch area on the eastern and southern sides of the ADU). The proposed structure will measure approximately 16 feet in height, measured from finished grade. Parking for the ADU will be provided by existing, legal, on-street parking along the street frontage of the property on Emigration Circle.  

The property is located in the R-1-5000 Single Family Residential zoning district where an ADU is listed as a Conditional Use. The Conditional Use process looks at compatibility, location, configuration, and potential impacts of the request. The proposed ADU will also be subject to the specific development regulations for ADU’s located in section 21A.40.200 of the zoning ordinance. This section regulates all requirements for ADUs, including size, height, location, distance to other primary structures, windows/openings as well as owner occupancy requirements.
