2114 Glenwood, between 21st and 22nd Streets, south side, appears to be in the process of creating a concrete pad in the front lawn off the driveway. There has been a car parked on the grass in that location for more than a year.
Is this construction or zoning violation, or a CB#14 issue as illegal curb cuts are? There is an existing driveway running to the back of the house, but this diagonal slot pad may be a convenient arrangement for multiple occupants in the house. There is no permit posted in view, though normal repaving of a sidewalk or driveway would not require one.
If not a defined zoning violation, this practice of creating parking in the front of a home is certainly a contextual violation of our neighborhood appearance. Other examples do exist, as on Bedford near Farragut with a full loop access, and on the lawn on the north side of Campus Road between 22nd and 21st streets, adjacent to the newer box homes with the steep diving driveways into the basement.
