NO. 02-17-00107-CV

Decided: January 11, 2018

CONCURRING MEMORANDUM OPINION 1

I write separately only to emphasize that but for the standard of review that ties our hands, I would conclude that the Schusters' need for a variance was a self-imposed hardship; that the dormant utility easement—on top of which the Schusters planned, after all, to construct a swimming pool even if not the house proper—did not justify a variance; and that an oddly shaped lot is an insufficient reason to grant a setback variance so that a roughly 10,000-square-foot house may be situated so close to the street.
