In accordance with Seward City Code ~ 15.10.325, the Planning and Zoning <br />Commission made the following findings of fact and conclusions based on the applicant's request, <br />and information provided by the administration: <br />A. The proposed action must be consistent with all of the general conditions <br />required for a conditional use permit: <br />1. The use is consistent with the purpose of this chapter and the purposes of <br />the zoning district. This condition has been met. The property is zoned Urban Residential (UR) <br />and a single-family home is allowed outright in the UR District. Except for the requested front <br />yard setback variance and minimum buildable lot size waiver, all other zoning code development <br />requirements will be met. <br />2. The value of adjoining property will not be significantly impaired. This <br />condition has been met. Although the adjoining Lots 9A and lOA are currently vacant, if a house <br />is ever built on these lots, it appears that adequate separation will be maintained between the two <br />buildings. The remaining adjoining property to the south and west is city owned park land and <br />no development is anticipated in that area. <br />
