Explanation

 

Council Variance Application:  CV20-009

 

APPLICANT:  Directions for Youth and Families; c/o Kathleen Kelly, Agent; 1444 Manning Parkway; Powell, OH 43065.

 

PROPOSED USE:  Youth center.

 

MIDEAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION:  Approval.

                                                                               

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION:  Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a shared living facility in the SR, Suburban Residential District as permitted by Special Permit SP81-244. The requested Council variance will permit the applicant to repurpose the existing building for a 3,031 square foot youth center, a use that includes counseling, educational, recreational, and general office uses which are not permitted in the SR, Suburban Residential District. Variances for parking setback and a parking reduction from seven required spaces to six provided spaces are included in the request. The site is within the planning boundaries of the Hamilton Road Corridor Revitalization Plan (2008), which recommends multi-unit residential land uses at this location. Staff supports the proposal because the applicant is committing to develop the site in accordance with the submitted site plan, which shows additional bicycle parking and enhanced parking lot screening. Additionally, the proposed youth center will not add incompatible uses to the area as the applicant conducts a similar operation on the  adjacent property to the west, and this site will expand current programming.
