Explanation

Council Variance Application CV20-050

APPLICANT: Michael McCandlish; 5260 Godown Road; Columbus, OH 43235.

PROPOSED USE: Single-unit dwelling.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The requested variance will conform an existing single-unit dwelling in the L-C-2, Limited Commercial District. A Council variance is necessary because residential uses are only permitted above specified commercial uses in the C-2, Commercial District. The site is located within the boundaries of The Northwest Plan (2016), which recommends “Office” land uses for this location. The dwelling has been long established on this lot and is consistent with the residential uses that are prevalent in the surrounding neighborhood. A hardship exists because the non-conforming nature of the site precludes financing options. Approval of this request will not add a new or incompatible use to the area.
