Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV18-110

APPLICANT: Eco-Site, Inc.; c/o David Hodge, Atty.; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: Monopole telecommunication antenna.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. This request will permit the construction of a 110-foot high monopole telecommunication antenna on the site of a religious facility and single-unit dwelling in the R-4, Residential District. A variance is necessary because monopole telecommunications antennas are not permitted in the R-4, Residential District. The request includes additional variances to increase height and reduce setback requirements. Although there is no Council adopted plan for this area, the proposed monopole and the associated variances can be supported as the mechanical equipment is screened from residential uses as recommended by the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines. Several institutional uses have incorporated monopoles within their facilities with no adverse effect on surrounding neighborhoods.
