Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV20-004

APPLICANT: Milow Holdings LLC, c/o James Flynn; Agent; 64 Miami Avenue; Columbus, Ohio 43203.

PROPOSED USE: Eating and drinking establishment.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS’ RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a commercial building previously occupied with a food carryout business permitted by Council variance #CV92-004 approved on April 27, 1992 (Ordinance #763-92). The requested Council variance will permit an eating and drinking establishment with a new patio addition. The R-2F, Residential District was established as part of the 1974 Model Cities down-zoning of the neighborhood which rendered many commercial and mixed-use properties non-conforming. A variance is necessary because the R-2F District prohibits commercial uses. The request also includes variances to landscaping and screening, setback requirements, a parking space reduction from 22 spaces to 3 spaces, and to conform existing site and building conditions. The site is located within the planning area of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which recommends higher-density residential and mixed-use development for this location, and is within the Urban Commercial Overlay. Staff supports the commercial uses noting that the commercial building predates the existing residential zoning district, and that the building is located on an established urban commercial corridor. The parking reduction request is supportable because of the walkable nature of the neighborhood, abundant on-street parking, and proximity to public transit on East Long Street.
