Explanation

Rezoning Application: Z17-004

APPLICANT: Morning Star Partners, LLC; c/o Kyle Kitzmiller, Applicant; 7795 Five Mile Road; Cincinnati, OH 45230; and Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, 1st Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: General retail.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (5-1) on July 13, 2017.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Disapproval. Approval. The site is undeveloped and zoned in the C-5, Commercial District. The requested CPD, Commercial Planned Development District would permit general retail development. The CPD text commits to a site plan and elevation drawing, provides commitments for buffering and screening, and includes a parking reduction of six required spaces. The permitted uses in the CPD text include only those uses in the C-4, Commercial District with several restrictions. The site is located within the boundaries of the Northland I Area Plan (2014), which recommends “Neighborhood Commercial” land uses for this location. The Northland I Area Plan also recommends that buildings be designed to address the street and enhance the pedestrian experience, that parking be located to the rear of the building, and that parking needs be balanced with the goal of creating walkable, bikeable neighborhoods. Staff is supportive of the use, but requests the building be placed at the corner with parking to the rear, as recommended by the Plan. Staff does not believe that deviation from this provision is warranted on the subject site. While the Plan recommends that the building be placed at the corner with parking to the rear, Staff supports deviation from this provision because the parcel is part of a platted subdivision, and adjacent properties along Schrock Road have comparable building setbacks. The proposed use is consistent with the Plan’s land use recommendations.
