Explanation

Rezoning Application: Z20-005

APPLICANT: Woda Cooper Companies, Inc.; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, 1st Floor; Columbus, OH 43215; and Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, 2nd Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit and single-unit residential development.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (6-0) on June 11, 2020.

COLUMBUS SOUTHSIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of nine undeveloped parcels zoned L-M, Limited Manufacturing District. The applicant requests the AR-1, Limited Apartment Residential District to permit multi-unit residential development on 2.30 acres, and the R-3, Residential District to permit seven single-unit dwellings on 1.04 acres. The site is within the planning boundaries of the South Side Plan (2014), which recommends community commercial land uses at this location. The site is also within an area that has early adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines. While the Plan recommends commercial land uses, staff views this request to be less intense than the established L-M district. Additionally, C2P2 Design Guidelines state that priority should be placed on the revitalization of Columbus’ older neighborhoods through infill development with access to transit, and that building placement and design should face public streets helping to contribute to a pedestrian-friendly streetscape. Concurrent Council Variance (Ordinance #1667-2020; CV20-011) has been filed to reduce various yard, height, and setback standards in order to meet these Guidelines. The request is consistent with recent residential urban infill projects in this area.
