Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-098

APPLICANT: Franklinton Development Association; c/o Laura MacGregor Comek, Atty.; 501 South High Street; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Ten-unit apartment building with off-site parking lot.

FRANKLINTON AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is undeveloped and comprised of three parcels, one of which is zoned AR-1, Apartment Residential District, and the others zoned R-2F, Residential District. The requested Council variance will allow a ten-unit apartment building in the AR-1 district and an 11-space parking lot serving the apartment building in the R-2F district. A variance is necessary because the R-2F district does not permit the proposed parking lot. Variances for increased density, and reduced landscaping, vision clearance, setbacks, and side and rear yards, with a parking space reduction from 15 required spaces to 4 provided on-site spaces (with the 16-space off-site parking lot being used for the apartment building) are included in the request. The site is within the planning area of the West Franklinton Plan (2014), which recommends Neighborhood Mixed Use for the AR-1 parcel and “Medium-High Density Residential” for the R-2F parcels. Additionally, the Plan includes early adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018). The proposal is consistent with the land use and site design recommendations of these documents, and will not add an incompatible use at this location.
