Explanation

 

Rezoning Application Z20-069

 

APPLICANT:  Brian Higgins; 1349 Dennison Avenue; Columbus, OH 43201.

 

PROPOSED USE:  Mixed-use development.

 

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION:  Approval (6-0) on December 10, 2020.

 

COLUMBUS SOUTHSIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION:  Approval.

 

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION:  Approval. The site is developed with two single-unit dwellings in the C-5, Commercial District as the result of a 1977 rezoning request for a project which never came to fruition. The applicant proposes the C-4, Commercial District to permit a mixed-use development containing 12 dwelling-units and 783 square feet of commercial space. The site is within the planning boundaries of the South Side Plan (2014), which recommends “Neighborhood Mixed Use” at this location. Additionally this site is within an area that has adopted the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018). Staff is supportive of the requested district which is consistent with the land use recommendation and the historical development pattern of Parsons Avenue. A concurrent Council Variance (Ordinance #0043-2021; CV20-079) has been filed to permit ground floor residential uses in the C-4 district, reduce the minimum number of required parking spaces, reduce parking space size, and reduce vision clearance.
