Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-064

APPLICANT: Brenda S. Parker; 405 North Front Street; Columbus, Ohio 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Two-unit dwelling.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of a single undeveloped parcel zoned in the R-3, Residential District. The existing zoning is the result of a city-initiated downzoning of the neighborhood in 1974 (Z73-197). A Council variance is necessary because the current zoning district permits only single-unit dwellings, while the applicant proposes a two-unit dwelling. The site is within the planning area of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which recommends “Lower and Medium Residential Density” uses for this location. The Plan does state that, in general, housing types and density should be consistent with the housing types and densities found in the surrounding area. City staff supports the requested variance as the proposal is consistent with the housing types, density, and development pattern found along Taylor Avenue.
