Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV17-081

APPLICANT: Lykens Companies; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; Dave Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, First Floor; and Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, Second Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Two detached single-unit dwellings on two contiguous lots.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of two parcels, each developed with a two-unit dwelling, in the R-4, Residential District. The applicant proposes to convert the two-unit dwellings into single-unit dwellings, and construct rear a single-unit dwelling above a detached garage (a carriage house) on each lot. A Council variance is required because while the R-4, Residential District permits a maximum of four dwelling units in one building per lot, it does not permit two dwellings on one lot. Variances for lot width, area district requirements, fronting, side yards, rear yard, maximum lot coverage, and maximum floor area ratio (FAR) are included in the request. Additionally, the request includes a reduction from eight required parking spaces to six provided parking spaces. The site is located within the planning area of University District Plan (2015), which recommends “lower intensity residential” uses for this location. Staff finds the proposal to be consistent with the Plan’s land use recommendation, will not add incompatible uses to the area, and is consistent with the recent development pattern in historic urban neighborhoods.
