Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV20-111

APPLICANT: Zen Bee Meadery; c/o Timothy Daniel DeMura; 7274 Reliance Street; Columbus, OH 43085.

PROPOSED USE: Meadery with accessory tasting room and retail sales.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is comprised of one parcel developed with a 9,600 square foot office/industrial building and a self-storage facility in the M-2, Manufacturing District. The requested Council variance will allow one of the tenant spaces within the office/industrial building to legitimize a 1,200 square foot meadery and 800 square foot accessory tasting room and retail space, with 315 square feet of outside seating proposed. The variance is necessary because a meadery is categorized as a “more objectionable” manufacturing use, and the M-2 district does not allow more objectionable manufacturing uses, eating/drinking, or retail uses. A parking space reduction from 22 to 17 spaces is being requested, and a variance to reduce the 600-feet distance separation requirement is included as there is an existing residential development within 537± feet of the north parcel line. The site is located within the planning area of the Far North Area Plan (2014), which recommends “Warehouse Flex” uses for this location, a designation that supports light industrial uses. The accessory tasting room and retail sales uses are for product manufactured on site and are ancillary to the primary production use. For these reasons, staff supports the request and finds the proposed use consistent with the Plan’s land use recommendation for light industrial development.
