Council Variance Application: CV19-049

APPLICANT: Sultan Khawaja; c/o Scott McKnight, Agent; 394 Oak Street; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Appliance and household goods restoration.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a commercial warehouse building in the C-4, Commercial District.

There is no Council adopted land use plan at this location, however, the site is within an area that has early adopted Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines. The requested variance is supportable because the proposed use will be confined inside the existing building on site.
