Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-099

APPLICANT: Juliet Bullock Architects; 1182 Wyandotte Road; Columbus, OH 43212.

PROPOSED USE: Habitable space above a garage.

GERMAN VILLAGE COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of a single-unit dwelling zoned in the R-2F, Residential District. The applicant requests a Council variance to allow habitable space above a detached garage with access and maneuvering through an adjacent parking lot. A Council variance is necessary because the zoning code permits habitable space above a garage only when such space is connected directly to habitable space in the dwelling. The request also includes variances for driveway, maneuvering, and to increase the allowable height of the garage to accommodate the habitable space, and is conditioned on the habitable space not being a separate dwelling unit. Board of Zoning Adjustment Application #BZA17-102 was approved for this site to allow the proposed development, but expired on October 26, 2018. Meanwhile, it has been determined that the Council variance is the appropriate venue for relief because unconnected habitable space represents a use restriction rather than a development standard. Staff supports the proposed variance as the request is consistent with similar proposals that have been approved in the area.
