Explanation

 

Rezoning Application: Z14-060

 

APPLICANT: Donald J. Compton & Anna B. Compton, Trustees; c/o Jeffrey L. Brown, Atty.; 37 W. Broad St., Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215.

                     

PROPOSED USE: Limited industrial and commercial development.

 

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (5-0) on December 13, 2018.

 

NORTHEAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

 

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a two-unit dwelling and an industrial Quonset hut building zoned in the L-M, Limited Manufacturing District (Z00-066) which permits C-2, Commercial District uses and less objectionable manufacturing uses. The site is being used as an automobile sales and service/repair facility. The requested L-M, Limited Manufacturing District will legitimize the current uses to comply with a Zoning Code violation for operating said uses without Zoning Clearance. The request adds permitted uses, including a use in Section 3363.16 for automobile salvage uses, and C-4 district uses for automobile sales and service/repair. The limitation text contains use restrictions and development standards for access, landscaping, screening, building materials commitments, and lighting and graphics controls. Salvage-related activities for the business are limited to only occurring within the existing building. The site is within the boundaries of the Northeast Area Plan (2007), which recommends low density residential land uses at this location. Deviation was supported with Application #Z00-066 due to the existing nonconforming industrial use occurring on the property at that time. Planning Division staff supports this proposal with the commitment to enhanced landscaping on the Genessee Avenue frontage, screening of the residential uses to the south, and a limitation of salvage operations to within a building. Additionally, storage of inoperable vehicles is limited to the screened area on the northwest portion of the site or within a building, and is not permitted to extend into the unbuilt alley right-of-way or former rail corridor parcel to the west. The proposed automobile-oriented uses are supported due to additional landscaping and screening being provided, and because salvage-related activities are only permitted within the building. Concurrent Ordinance #0459-2020 (CV18-088) is included to conform the existing two-unit dwelling, and to address the reduced parking setbacks and distance separation requirements while committing to a site plan.

 

Title

 

To rezone 2497 BANCROFT ST. (43211), being 0.52± acres located at the southwest corner of Bancroft Street and Genessee Avenue, From: L-M, Limited Manufacturing District, To: L-M, Limited Manufacturing District (Rezoning #Z14-060).

 

Body

 

WHEREAS, application #Z14-060 is on file with the Department of Building and Zoning Services requesting rezoning of 0.52± acres From: L-M, Limited Manufacturing District, To: L-M, Limited Manufacturing District; and

 

WHEREAS, the Development Commission recommends approval of said zoning change; and

 

WHEREAS, the Northeast Area Commission recommends approval of said zoning change; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Departments recommend approval of said zoning change because the requested L-M, Limited Manufacturing District for proposed automobile-oriented uses is supported due to additional landscaping and screening being provided, and because salvage-related activities are only permitted within the building. Deviation from the land use recommendation of the Northeast Plan was supported for the existing L-M district due to the nonconformity of the site at that time, and because appropriate use restrictions and screening are included to mitigate the impact on adjacent residential uses; now, therefore:
