Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-070

APPLICANT: Connie J. Klema, Atty.; P.O. Box 991; Pataskala, OH 43062.

PROPOSED USE: Parking lot.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

UNIVERSITY IMPACT DISTRICT REVIEW BOARD RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a parking lot in the R-4, Residential (Parcel 1), and P-1, Parking (Parcel 2) districts that was established without zoning clearance or permits. The requested Council variance will permit the parking lot in the R-4, Residential district and will legitimize the existing development. In addition to the R-4 district use variance, variances to maximum and minimum side yards, landscaping and screening, parking setback line, vision clearance, and setbacks are included in this request. The site is located within the boundaries of the University Area Plan (2015), which recommends “Regional Mixed Use” at this location. The site is also subject to a Certificate of Approval by the University Impact District Review Board, wherein adequate landscaping will be incorporated on the east side of the parking lot. The applicant has confirmed that the parking spaces in the lot are 9 feet by 18 feet, have 20 feet of maneuvering area, and will be installing wheel stop devices per City Code requirements. Staff is supportive of these variances as the parking lot is consistent with the land use recommendations of the University Area Plan, has existed on the property for almost a decade, and serves as employee and customer parking for the building located at 1288 North High Street which received a parking space reduction variance (Application #BZA12310-00202) in 2012.
