Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-113

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

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is comprised of a single parcel zoned in the R-1, Residential District, and is developed with a single-unit dwelling. The requested Council variance will allow the site to be redeveloped with a 56-unit apartment complex. A variance is necessary because the R-1 district does not permit multi-unit residential development. The site is within the planning area of the Northland I Area Plan (2014), which recommends “Medium-High Density Mixed Residential” uses for this location. This proposed development will be subject to a competitive funding process by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development which requires certain land attributes including compliant zoning. Staff supports the Council variance process to assist in this state funding application process; however, this ordinance includes a condition that a Certificate of Zoning Clearance will not be issued until a follow-up rezoning to an appropriate zoning district has been completed. The Planning Division does not object to this limited Council variance request, but has requested the following from the applicant when the follow-up rezoning application is filed: that parking be placed behind the proposed dwelling units, that sidewalks are included, and that the applicant work with Columbus City Schools to explore the feasibility of a connection between the subject site and the adjacent school.
