Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-029

APPLICANT: SC Real Estate Group LLC; c/o Dwight McCabe; 7361 Currier Road; Plain City, OH 43064.

PROPOSED USE: Mattress manufacturing and retail showroom.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a vacant retail building in the L-C-4, Limited Commercial District. The requested Council variance will permit mattress manufacturing in conjunction with a retail showroom. The variance is necessary because mattress manufacturing is listed as a more objectionable manufacturing use that must be located within the M, or M-1, Manufacturing districts at least 600 feet from residentially-zoned property. A variance to reduce the distance separation requirement to 245± feet is also included. The site is located within the boundaries of the Greater Hilltop Plan Amendment (2010), which recommends “Mixed Use - Community” land uses at this location. The Plan also recommends that in the event that the investment in retail usage declines in this portion of West Broad Street, the conversion to Employment Center uses consistent with urban design guidelines should be supported. The proposed mattress manufacturing use is a small-scale operation within an existing 134,600± square-foot building that will include a retail showroom component. The building is located approximately 288 feet from an apartment building to the northeast. For these reasons, Staff supports the distance separation reduction, and finds that the request is consistent with the Plan’s land use recommendation for Employment Center uses. Approval of this request will not add an incompatible use to the area.
