Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-031

APPLICANT: Central Ohio Community Improvement Corporation; c/o Jordan Henderson, Agent; Healthy Rental Homes VII LCC; P.O. Box 77499; Columbus, OH 43207.

PROPOSED USE: Three two-unit dwellings.

COLUMBUS SOUTHSIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel previously developed with a seven-unit townhouse and a mixed-use building zoned in the AR-1, Apartment Residential District. The requested Council variance will permit redevelopment of the site with three two-unit dwellings, each on its own lot. A Council variance is necessary because the AR-1, Apartment Residential District only permits a two-unit dwelling when the lot meets specific platting and area district exception criteria (CC 3333.055). The request includes a variance to reduce the required lot width for each parcel from 50 feet to 45 feet. The property is within the boundaries of the Near Southside Plan (2011), which recommends “Medium Density Mixed Residential” (6-10 du/ac) and “Mixed Use (Neighborhood)” land uses for this location. The Plan also includes adoption of Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines. Staff supports the proposed density due to the inclusion of C2P2 Design Guidelines, including the provision of street trees, high quality building materials, and a commitment to building elevations. The proposal is compatible with the development pattern of the neighborhood and will not introduce incompatible uses to the area.
