Nashville Building Codes Enforcement
We, the undersigned, kindly request that current Nashville building regulations be enforced at 4408 Nevada Avenue and 4500 Utah Avenue. Current code 17.12.060 require that "accessory structures shall not exceed one story or sixteen feet in height... the roof on the structure shall rise from the side walls at a roof pitch no steeper than the predominant roof pitch of the principal dwelling..." Both of these structures are in violation of these guidelines as they both contain second levels. The construction you see in the attached picture was granted a permit for a one level 689sf structure. Clearly a much larger structure has been built.
The regulations currently in place help avoid oversized 2 story structures like these from being squeezed onto smaller lots which reduces our trees, green space and neighborhood feel. Enforcement of these existing building dimensions will help us preserve the character of our beloved neighborhood. Thank you for your consideration and continued enforcement.
