Explanation

Council Variance Application CV17-015

APPLICANT: Pine Hill Investments; c/o Richelle Sammons; 1077 Franklin Avenue; Health, OH 43056.

PROPOSED USE: Single-unit dwelling.

COLUMBUS SOUTH SIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The requested variance will conform an existing single-unit dwelling in the C-4, Commercial District. A Council variance is necessary because residential uses are only permitted above specified commercial uses in the C-4, Commercial District. The site is located within the boundaries of the South Side Plan (2002), which recommends “Neighborhood Commercial” land uses for this location. The dwelling has been long established on this lot and is consistent with the residential uses that are prevalent in the surrounding neighborhood. A hardship exists because the non-conforming nature of the site precludes financing options. A parking space reduction for two required spaces is included in the request. Approval of this request will not add a new or incompatible use to the area.
