Explanation

 

Council Variance Application:  CV21-005

 

APPLICANT:  Thalia Osei; c/o Tashianna Kwakye; 1300 Yellowwood Drive; Columbus, OH 43229. 

 

PROPOSED USE: Type "A" home day care facility within a single-unit dwelling.

 

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION:  Approval.  The site consists of a single-unit dwelling zoned in the SR, Suburban Residential District. The applicant proposes a Type "A"day care facility within her home. The SR district permits only Type "B" day care facilities within a home, or child day care centers as accessory uses to a religious facility or school. Type "B" facilities permit a maximum of six children and do not require a Certificate of Zoning Clearance or a license, while Type "A" facilities permit a maximum of twelve children, require a Certificate of Zoning Clearance, and are licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. Since the primary use of the property will still be a single-unit dwelling, Staff has no objection to the requested Type "A" home day care facility which must comply with Ohio Revised Code requirements and be inspected by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. A variance to the minimum number of parking spaces required is included in the request.

WHEREAS, by application #CV21-005, the owner of the property at 5876 MALL VIEW CT. (43231), is requesting a Council Variance to permit a Type "A" home day care with reduced parking in the SR, Suburban Residential District; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 3332.029, SR, Suburban Residential District, permits only Type "B" home day care facilities, or child day care centers as accessory uses to a religious facility or school, while the applicant proposes to operate a Type "A" home day care facility for a maximum of twelve children within an existing single-unit dwelling; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 3312.49, Minimum numbers of parking spaces required, requires two parking spaces for the single-unit dwelling use and one parking space per 500 square feet of day care facility space, a total requirement of seven spaces, while the applicant proposes to maintain two parking spaces; and
