Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-010

APPLICANT: Benjamin Jackson; 286 North Twentieth Street; Columbus, OH 43203.

PROPOSED USE: To conform an existing single-unit dwelling.

COLUMBUS SOUTHSIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The requested variance will conform an existing single-unit dwelling in the C-4, Commercial District, and will permit an addition to the structure. A Council variance is necessary because the C-4 district no longer permits single-unit dwellings and only permits dwelling units only above certain commercial uses. A variance is also included to conform the existing building setback line. The site lies within the boundaries of the South Side Plan (2014), which recommends neighborhood mixed-use for this location. A hardship exists because the nonconforming nature of the site affects financing options and the ability of the owner to make improvements to the structure. The dwelling has been long established on this lot, and is consistent with the residential uses that are intermixed along this corridor. Approval of this request will not add a new or incompatible use to the area.
