Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-041

APPLICANT: Brandon Ault; c/o Becca Lynn, Agent; 267 Kelton Avenue; Columbus, OH 43205.

PROPOSED USE: Artisan shop within a single-unit dwelling.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a single-unit dwelling zoned in the R-3, Residential District. The requested Council variance will allow one room of the existing dwelling to be used as an artisan shop with onsite retail sales and gallery space while maintaining the residential use. A Council variance is necessary because the R-3, Residential district does not permit commercial uses. A variance is included to reduce the parking requirement from three required spaces to zero provided spaces. The site is within the planning area of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which does not have a recommended land use for this location, but discourages non-residential uses in residential areas. Staff supports the request, as this is a live-work scenario and no exterior alterations are proposed to the dwelling that could compromise the site’s residential character and compatibility with the surrounding neighborhood.
