Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-010

APPLICANT: Main-Miller Company LLC; c/o David Hodge, Atty.; Underhill & Hodge, LLC; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Residential private garages.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of two undeveloped parcels zoned in the R-3, Residential District. The applicant proposes to reconfigure the site into five parcels and construct private detached garages on four of these lots to serve the four dwellings located directly to the south that front on Oak Street. The fifth parcel, which is only 100 square feet, will likely be combined with the adjacent property to the east. A variance is necessary because private garages can only be accessory uses on residential lots that are developed with dwelling units, and cannot be a principal use on a property. Due to title issues, the lots cannot be combined with the adjacent residential lots that they will be serving. In addition to the use variance, variances to lot width, area district requirements, fronting, building setback, yard standards, and garage size are included in this request. The site is located within the boundaries of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which does not contain a land use recommendation for this location, but recommends compatible development for existing housing types. Staff supports the proposed variances as they will expand the useable area of the adjacent residential lots and accommodate enclosed parking. A condition is included in this ordinance stating that the proposed private garages are for the exclusive use of the residents of the four adjacent dwellings. The request will not introduce incompatible uses to the existing neighborhood.
