Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV20-029

APPLICANT: Eric D. Martineau; 3001 North High Street, Suite 1A; Columbus, OH 43202.

PROPOSED USE: Two single-unit dwellings on one lot.

UNIVERSITY AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a single-unit dwelling in the R-4, Residential District. The applicant proposes to construct a rear single-unit dwelling above a detached garage (a carriage house). A Council variance is required because the R-4, Residential District permits a maximum of four dwelling units in one building, but does not permit two separate dwellings on one lot. Variances for minimum number of parking spaces required, lot coverage, minimum floor area ratio (FAR), lot width, area district requirements, fronting, minimum and maximum side yards, and rear yard are included in the request. The site is within the boundaries of the University District Plan (2015), which recommends “Lower Intensity Residential” land uses for this location. Staff finds the proposal to be consistent with the Plan’s land use recommendation and the recent development pattern in historic urban neighborhoods.
