Explanation

 

Rezoning Application: Z19-049

                      

APPLICANT: Metro Development, c/o Jeffrey L. Brown, Atty.; 37 West Broad Street, Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215.

     

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development.

 

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (4-0) on December 12, 2019.

 

WEST SCIOTO AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Disapproval.

 

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of four parcels zoned in the R, Rural District: one parcel is undeveloped, and three parcels along the Trabue Road frontage are developed with single-unit dwellings and have been recently annexed from Franklin Township. The requested L-ARLD, Limited Apartment Residential District will permit a multi-unit residential development with a maximum of 312 264 units (12.18 10.31 units/acre gross density). The limitation text commits to a site plan which depicts pedestrian connectivity, open space, and tree preservation areas, and establishes supplemental development standards that address density, traffic commitments, including a monetary contribution towards a future Trabue Road regional traffic study, and graphics controls. Increased stormwater management facilities are depicted on the site plan to help alleviate existing drainage issues with the adjacent single-unit subdivision and Interstate 270. The site is within the boundaries of the Trabue/Roberts Plan (2011), which recommends low-medium density residential (4-6 units/acre) land uses for this location. Although the Plan recommends lower density residential for this location, Planning Division staff recognizes that the proposed use is compatible with existing surrounding residential density patterns, is adjacent to the freeway, and that the proposal would preserve a significant amount of open space. As such, staff supports increased densities at this location. Concurrent Council Variance (Ordinance #0576-2020; CV19-103) is also requested to reduce parking and building setbacks, to permit maneuvering and parking spaces to cross a parcel line, and to eliminate the perimeter yard along the internal property line as the site will be comprised of two separate parcels due to different taxing districts.

 

Title

 

To rezone 4407 TRABUE RD. (43228), being 25.6± acres located on the south side of Trabue Road, 800± feet west of Arlingate Lane, From: R, Rural District, To: L-ARLD, Limited Apartment Residential District (Rezoning #Z19-049).

 

Body

 

WHEREAS, application #Z19-049 is on file with the Department of Building and Zoning Services requesting rezoning of 25.6± acres from R, Rural District, to the L-ARLD, Limited Apartment Residential District; and

 

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

 

WHEREAS, the West Scioto Area Commission recommends disapproval of said zoning change; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Departments recommend approval of said zoning change because the requested L-ARLD, Limited Apartment Residential District is compatible with existing surrounding residential density patterns. The site is adjacent to the freeway and the proposal preserves a significant amount of open space. As such staff supports higher density than what is recommended by the Trabue-Roberts Area Plan; now, therefore:
