Rezoning Application Z17-010

APPLICANT: OhioHealth Corporation; c/o Christopher N. Slagle, Atty.; 100 South Third Street; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Parking lot.


CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is zoned L-I, Limited Institutional District, and was formerly developed with a hospice facility that was recently demolished. The parking lot for that facility is still intact. The requested CPD, Commercial Planned Development District will permit a 161-space employee parking lot for hospital and administrative office staff, and will alleviate parking shortage issues resulting from construction of new administrative office and structured parking facilities on existing surface parking lots. The site is within the boundaries of the Olentangy West Area Plan (2013), which recommends institutional uses at this location. The Planning Division recognizes the proposed parking lot will serve the various offices and medical facilities associated with OhioHealth/Riverside Hospital. The Plan also recommends that parking should be balanced with the goal of reducing the development’s impact on the natural environment; that landscaping and screening should be utilized to enhance development; and that appropriate corridor landscaping should be provided. The CPD text commits to a site plan, proposes fencing along the north and west property lines adjacent to residential uses, and includes a variance to eliminate parking lot trees. To offset the elimination of required parking lot trees, shade trees and shrubs are proposed within the parking setback area which will supplement landscaping along Olentangy River Road. With the landscaping and screening proposed, the request is consistent with the zoning and development pattern of the area.
