VINEMONT, Ala. – The Town of Vinemont called a Public Hearing Tuesday evening to discuss a request for a zoning variance for properties at 104, 116, 130, 148 on Federer Street. Richard Neese with Tenax Enterprises LLC applied for the variance to the zoning ordinance of the Town of South Vinemont, Alabama, Article IV District Regulations, Section 60.0 R-1 Residential District, Space and Height Regulations Minimum Lot Size.

A variance was requested for regulation stating, “minimum required lot width at building line 100 feet.” Tracts 1-4 104, 116, 130, 148 have a minimum lot width at building line of greater than 62 feet, but less than 100 feet.

The request for variance was also for the regulation stating, “Minimum required lot area 15,000 square feet.” Tracts 1, 2, and 4 have a minimum lot area of at least 11,808-14,012 square feet.

Another variance was requested for regulation stating, “15 feet of side yard required.” Tracts 1-4 will have 10 feet on each side for side yard.

Several members of the community were in attendance that were against the variance allowing the four houses to be built in a space that would normally accommodate three. However, the council members unanimously approved zoning variance.
