Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-032

APPLICANT: Swensons Drive-In Restaurants; c/o David Hodge, Atty.; Underhill & Hodge LLC; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Drive-in restaurant.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is undeveloped and is zoned in the L-C-4, Limited Commercial District as part of the Polaris development. The requested variance will permit a 1,711± square foot drive-in restaurant, a C-5, Commercial District use, on the subject site. The site is within the boundaries of the Far North Area Plan (2014), which recommends mixed-use regional commercial development for this location. The request includes a variance to increase the maximum number of parking spaces permitted from 35 to 75 for an eating and drinking establishment, but the nature of this use (dining occurs exclusively inside automobiles as opposed to a dining room inside the building) is different than that of a typical eating and drinking establishment. Additional landscaping has been incorporated into the site plan to offset the increased pavement area of the parking lot.
