Council Variance Application: CV17-052

APPLICANT: Allegheny West Conference Corp of Seventh-Day Adventists; c/o Bruce A. Harris; Harris Architects; 985 Schrock Road; Columbus, OH 43229.

PROPOSED USE: Modular classroom building for an existing school.


CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a church in the R-1, Residential and PUD-8, Planned Unit Development districts, and a school in the PUD-8, Planned Unit Development District. The property is subject to Ordinance #1257-22, passed July 29, 2002, (CV02-031A) which permitted the school use. That variance was necessary because the registered PUD-8 Plan for Ordinance #759-72 (Z72-029), which is binding, indicates multi-unit residential development where the school is situated. The requested Council variance will permit expansion of the school with a modular classroom building. A condition from CV02-031A for the site to be rezoned to an appropriate district will be carried over in this ordinance. The site is located within the boundaries of the Northeast Area Plan (2007), which recommends institutional land uses for this location. The site plan depicts the location of the modular buildings and a parking lot expansion, and conditions regarding site access requested by the Department of Public Service have been incorporated into the proposal. The request is consistent with the land use recommendations of the Northeast Area Plan, and staff supports the expansion of the school use as a Council variance with the understanding that the applicant will pursue rezoning of the property once they have identified their intended land uses and development needs. Approval of this request will not add new or incompatible uses to the area.
