Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-057

APPLICANT: Gary J. Alexander, Agent; 1265 Neil Avenue; Columbus, OH 43201.

PROPOSED USE: A carriage house on a lot developed with a two-unit dwelling.

VICTORIAN VILLAGE COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is zoned R-4, Residential District, and developed with a two-unit dwelling. The requested Council variance will permit the construction of a single-unit dwelling above a garage (carriage house) in the rear yard of the lot with reduced development standards. The variance is necessary because the R-4, Residential District permits a maximum of four dwelling units in one building, but does not permit a two-unit dwelling and a single-unit dwelling on one lot. Variances for lot width, area district requirements, fronting, and rear yard are also included in the request. Staff finds that the proposal will not add incompatible uses to the area as there are other carriage houses within this neighborhood. The request is consistent with the recent development pattern in historic urban neighborhoods, and building design will conform to the Victorian Village Commission requirements.
