Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV17-044

APPLICANT: Homewood Corporation; c/o Laura MacGregor Comek, Atty.; 300 East Broad Street, Suite 450; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Dog shelter with outdoor runs subject to an approved Special Permit from the Board of Zoning Adustment .

GREATER SOUTH EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is undeveloped and is pending rezoning to the CPD, Commercial Planned Development District with Ordinance # 1979-2017 (Z16-054). The applicant is requesting a Council variance to allow a dog shelter with outdoor runs along the west side of the proposed building, as reflected on the site plan committed to with Ordinance # 1979-2017. A dog shelter is a permitted use of the proposed CPD district, but a shelter with outdoor runs must be located in an M or M-1, Manufacturing District, and requires a Special Permit from the Columbus Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) where additional conditions and limitations can be imposed. The applicant is still required to obtain a Special Permit, and that application has been filed (BZA17-064). Staff supports the proposal because the shelter will not be open to the public, building design and extensive landscaping incorporated into the CPD district make the proposed animal shelter with outdoor runs compatible with existing and proposed uses in the area.
