The subject property is located on Hillview Avenue, between South Mesquite and Live Oak Avenues, and between IH-35 South and South Business 35. The property is approximately 8,118 square feet in area and is occupied by a 1,206 square foot single family residential structure built in 1950.

The "C-3" zoning allows rental or occupancy for less than one month. However, the structure is a single-family dwelling requiring approval of a Special Use Permit (SUP) before it can be used as a short term rental. If the SUP is approved, an administrative Short Term Rental Permit is also required prior to the first rental, along with annual fire inspections as well as remittance of hotel occupancy tax.

The residence currently contains three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Minimum required off-street parking is one (1) space per sleeping area, not including the garage, with a minimum of two (2) spaces and a maximum not to exceed the number of sleeping areas plus one (1). The applicant's site plan indicates two existing paved parking spaces and two additional proposed paved parking spaces, for a total of four spaces.

The Zoning Ordinance sets maximum short term rental occupancy of two adults per bedroom plus an additional 4 adults. This short term rental would be eligible for a total of 10 adult occupants.
