Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV17-040

APPLICANT: Thallissa Bowman; 2096 Mecca Road; Columbus, OH 43219.

PROPOSED USE: Carry-out food sales with limited outdoor seating and storage.

NORTHEAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of a poorly-maintained asphalt lot zoned in the R-2, Residential District. The requested Council variance will allow the property to be used for limited parking of a food truck for carry-out sales and accessory outside seating (Phase 1), with a future building planned for accessory storage of supplies and carry-out service (Phase 2). Variances for parking setback, landscaping and screening, a parking space reduction of 5 required spaces, and reduced building setbacks are included in the request. The site is within the planning area of the Northeast Area Plan (2007), which recommends low-density residential uses for this location; however, the site is fully paved and was in recent years used as a storage parking lot for construction equipment. Staff took this and other factors such as the applicant’s outreach to the community and the mix of residential and commercial zoning and uses on Mock Road into account during review. Additionally, staff recognizes that the applicant’s proposed introduction of a landscaped open space fronting on Mock Road would be an improvement to the neighborhood. Therefore, staff supports deviation from the Plan for this proposal.
