Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV19-123

APPLICANT: Weinland Park Development, LLC; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, 1st Floor; Columbus, OH 43215; and Donald Plank, Atty.; 411 East Town Street, 2nd Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Single-unit dwellings.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of seven parcels and is developed with a commercial building in the C-4, Commercial District. The applicant is seeking to redevelop the site with single-unit dwellings. The Weinland Park neighborhood is seeing substantial residential development with both new construction and remodeling of existing structures that have been made possible through Council variances (Ordinance #’s 0347-2010, 0345-2013, 1372-2017, and 1780-2017). A Council variance is necessary because the C-4, Commercial District does not permit single-unit dwellings. A variance to reduce the setback lines are also included in this request. The site is within the boundaries of the University Planning Overlay and the University District Plan (2015), which recommends “Lower Intensity Residential” land uses for this location. The proposed development is compatible with the development pattern of the surrounding neighborhood and consistent with the land use recommendations of the University District Plan. The ordinance is conditioned on this site as well as all property within the Grant Park Redevelopment being rezoned to appropriate residential districts upon issuance of an approved Site Compliance Plan or Subdivision Plan for the last undeveloped area of the development, or six years from the date of Columbus City Council passage of this ordinance, whichever occurs first.
