Explanation

 

APPLICANT:  CCC Columbus LLC; c/o Jeffrey L. Brown, Atty.; 37 W. Broad St., Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215. 

                     

PROPOSED USE:  Outdoor storage.

 

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning request to the M, Manufacturing District (Ordinance #1962-2020; Z20-011) to permit open storage of materials associated with the industrial facility developed on the remaining portion of the parcel. The requested Council variance is necessary to reduce the open storage setbacks from the adjacent residential district, public street, and interior lot lines. A site plan commitment is included showing the extent of the open storage area, right of way dedication, and fence locations. Staff is supportive of the reduced development standards as the request is an alteration to the existing industrial development and does not add an incompatible use to the surrounding area.
