Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-027

APPLICANT: Double Bogey Holdings LLC; c/o David Hodge, Atty.; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: A two-unit dwelling or two single-unit dwellings on one lot.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of an undeveloped parcel in the R-3, Residential District per a city-sponsored down-zoning of the Near East Area in 1974 (Z73-197). The applicant is requesting a Council variance to provide for the option to build either the two-unit dwelling or two single-unit dwellings on one lot. A Council variance is necessary because the current zoning district permits only one single-unit dwelling. Variances to lot width requirements, area district requirements, fronting, rear yard and a parking space reduction from 4 required to 2 provided spaces are included in the request. The site is within the planning area of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which does not recommend a land use for this location. The Plan does state that, in general, housing types and density should be consistent with the housing types and densities found in the surrounding area. Staff believes the proposal is compatible with the urban character of the neighborhood as recommended by the Plan and does not introduce incompatible uses to the area as there are numerous two-unit dwellings in this neighborhood.
