Explanation

Rezoning Application: Z21-020

APPLICANT: Molly R. Gwin, Atty.; 2 Miranova Place, Suite 700; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Single-unit residential subdivision.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (5-0) on May 13, 2021.

GREATER SOUTH EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The 32.17± acre site is currently undeveloped. The requested L-R-2, Limited Residential District will allow the development of 107 single-unit dwellings on individual lots at a density of 3.28 units/acre. The limitation text includes development standards addressing setbacks, traffic access, buffering and landscaping, and building design, and commits to parkland dedication and compliance with the submitted site plan. The site is within the boundaries of the South East Land Use Plan (2018), which recommends “Low Density Residential (4-6 du/ac)” and “Open Space” land uses for this location. The Plan also includes complete adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018). The request is consistent with the land use recommendations of the South East Land Use Plan. Planning Division staff has confirmed that additional site plan details conform to C2P2 Design Guidelines. Planning Division staff prefers the applicant to construct dwellings that include a front porch or that do not include a protruding garage, but does not condition support on this matter. Planning Division staff also encourages expansion of the trail in the open space area located in the northeast corner of the site to be extended through the eastern parkland and connect to the shared use path fronting Brice Road, as well as to plant trees in the parkland space, both in consultation with the Department of Recreation and Parks.
