Explanation
BACKGROUND:

The Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) are designed to guide and focus growth in a way that will support economic competitiveness, improve resident’s quality of life and provide environmental benefits throughout the city of Columbus. C2P2 is comprised of four elements: Guiding Principles; Design Guidelines; Land Use Policies; and Land Use Plans.

The C2P2 process ensures that communities across the city have equal consideration for planning and design policy. The Far East Land Use Plan is a C2P2 document and was developed by city staff in partnership with the community. It includes parcel specific land use recommendations and area specific policies addressing property within the plan boundary. These elements work in conjunction with the C2P2 Guiding Principles, Design Guidelines, and Land Use Policies to provide consistent, clear guidance for reviewing development proposals and related issues within the boundary of the Far East Land Use Plan boundary. C2P2, including the Far East Land Use Plan, supersedes the Broad Blacklick Area Plan (2011), portions of the Brice-Tussing Area Plan (1990) and portions of the Livingston East Area Plan (2009). The remainder of the Brice-Tussing Area Plan (1990) will be superseded by the South East Land Use Plan in companion legislation. The remainder of the Livingston East area falls outside the Far East Area Commission boundary.

As C2P2 Guiding Principles, Design Guidelines, and Land Use Policies are updated, the adopted updates will apply within the Far East Area Commission boundary in order to ensure the policy guidance remains current.

The Far East Area Commission voted to support the plan and associated C2P2 elements at their May 1, 2018 meeting. The Columbus Development Commission reviewed the plan on June 14, 2018 and voted to recommend C2P2 Complete Adoption for the Far East area to City Council.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

FISCAL IMPACT: None.
