Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-085

APPLICANT: Homeport c/o Dave Perry; David Perry Company, Inc., 411 East Town Street, Floor 1; Columbus, Ohio 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Apartment building.

NORTH LINDEN AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Disapproval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is zoned in the R-4, Residential District, and is comprised of undeveloped parcels and several vacant residential buildings. The requested Council variance will permit the development of a 45-unit apartment building. A variance is necessary because the R-4, Residential District allows a maximum of four units in one building. In addition to the use variance, requested variances include modified parking lot landscaping and reductions to required setbacks and parking. The site is within the boundaries of the North Linden Neighborhood Plan Amendment (2014), which recommends “Neighborhood Mixed Use” at this location. The request is consistent with the existing development pattern in this neighborhood and is compatible with Plan guidelines. It should be noted that the Zoning Staff does not support the proposal as a Council variance application. Staff believes that multi-unit residential development of this density should be rezoned to an appropriate apartment residential zoning district and afforded the full review process applicable to rezoning applications, including a public hearing and review by the Development Commission. For that reason, this ordinance is conditioned on a follow-up rezoning to an appropriate zoning designation within one year of its effective date.
