Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV20-079

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

PROPOSED USE: Mixed-use development.

COLUMBUS SOUTHSIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance #0042-2021; Z20-069) to the C-4, Commercial District. The applicant proposes a mixed-use development containing two ground floor apartment units and 783 square feet of commercial retail space with 10 apartment units above. A Council variance is necessary because the C-4 district does not permit dwelling units on the first floor. Additional variances are requested for reduced parking space size for two required spaces, reduced vision clearance at the garage entrance from Stanley Avenue, and a parking space reduction from 20 required to 11 provided space. The variances are supportable due to the urban nature of the development which is compatible with the historic development pattern of Parsons Avenue. Additionally, the site is located in a pedestrian-friendly area that has access to public transportation.
