APPLICANT: Leslie Thompson; c/o Ashley Ingram, Atty.; 98 Hamilton Avenue; Columbus, OH 43203.

PROPOSED USE: Eating and drinking establishment.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance #3330-2019; Z19-067) to the C-3, Commercial District for the undeveloped portion of the site (1194 Mt.

Vernon Avenue) is to be converted from a retail use to a 2,330 square foot eating and drinking establishment with an 831 square foot accessory patio. The requested Council variance permits a parking reduction from 29 required spaces to 16 provided spaces. The reduced number of parking spaces is supported because of the pedestrian friendly setting, and proximity to on-street parking and public transit.
