Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-047

APPLICANT: HH21, LLC; c/o Benjamin MacDowell, Atty.; Anthony Law, LLC; 978 S. Front St.; Columbus OH 43206.

PROPOSED USE: Bed and breakfast.

HARRISON WEST SOCIETY RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is developed with a dwelling built in 1860, which has been used as a bed and breakfast since 1990 and is zoned in the R-2F, Residential District. The requested Council variance will legitimize the existing bed and breakfast, permitting up to 10 guest rooms. Variances to conform existing site conditions include parking lot screening, parking setback line, vision clearance, minimum side yard, building setback line, and minimum number of parking spaces. The site is within boundaries of the Harrison West Plan (2005), which recommends “One and Two Family” land use at this location. The Plan includes adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018). C2P2 encourages building owners to conserve and rehabilitate historic buildings and architectural elements; and that consideration should be given for preservation of historic buildings and homes that contribute to the character of existing neighborhoods. Staff notes the proposed use is an existing use in a historically contributing building. Additionally, staff notes the bed and breakfast utilizes existing off-street parking, is in close proximity to ample on-street parking, and is located on 5th Avenue which is a transit corridor with commercial uses in close proximity to the property. Staff finds that the proposal will not add incompatible uses to the area, and is consistent with the development pattern in this historic urban neighborhood.
