Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-130

APPLICANT: Juliet Bullock, Architect; 1182 Wyandotte Road; Columbus, OH 43212.

PROPOSED USE: Single-unit and two-unit dwelling development.

VICTORIAN VILLAGE COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is comprised of three parcels: two parcels that are developed with a single-unit dwelling which straddles the parcel line and a detached garage, and one parcel that is developed with a single-unit dwelling and carriage house subject to Ordinance #2005-2014 (CV14-035), all zoned in the ARLD, Apartment Residential District. The applicant is requesting a Council variance to reconfigure the three parcels to construct an addition to convert the existing single-unit dwelling into a two-unit dwelling with the existing detached garage on Lot A (966 Hunter Avenue); create a buildable center parcel for a new single-unit dwelling and detached garage on Lot B (962 Hunter Avenue); and to construct an addition to convert the existing single-unit dwelling into a two-unit dwelling with the existing carriage house on Lot C (960 Hunter Avenue). The request includes variances to lot width, area district requirements, side yard, and side yard obstruction; and variances for fronting and rear yard will be carried over from #2005-2014. The variance is required because these lots do not meet the exception (Section 3333.055) for single-unit or two-unit dwellings in the ARLD district, and also because the ARLD district does not allow two dwellings on the same lot. Staff supports the proposal because the request will not add incompatible uses to the area, and it is consistent with the recent development pattern in historic urban neighborhoods.
