Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-051

APPLICANT: Indigo Sun Wellness Studio; c/o David A. Ferris, Atty.; The Ferris Law Group LLC; P.O. Box 940; Worthington, OH 43085.

PROPOSED USE: Health and wellness studio.

CLINTONVILLE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS’ RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel zoned in the R-2, Residential District, and is developed with a commercial building previously occupied with a day care center permitted by Council variance #CV98-041 approved on November 2, 1998 (Ordinance #2701-98). The requested Council variance will allow the building to be converted to a health and wellness studio. A variance is necessary because the R-2 district prohibits commercial uses. The request includes variances for a parking space reduction from seven spaces to five spaces, and to conform existing conditions related to landscaping and screening, building and parking setbacks, aisle width, maneuvering, and side yard requirements. The site is located within the boundaries of the Clintonville Area Plan (2009), which recommends single-unit residential land uses at this location. The Plan also states that new investment should ensure the long term economic viability of all neighborhoods and be compatible with the development pattern of the surrounding area. Staff supports the proposed commercial use noting that the commercial building has been long established in the neighborhood, and finds the parking variance supportable due to the site’s proximity to public transit and availability of on-street parking. Additionally, Planning Division staff has reviewed landscaping improvement plans for the site, and finds that the site is sufficiently landscaped and screened to minimize the impact on adjacent residential uses.
