Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV20-121

APPLICANT: Blue Chip Homes, LLC; c/o Dave Perry, Agent; David Perry Company, Inc.; 411 East Town Street, 1st Floor; and Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, 2nd Floor; Columbus, OH 43215.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning request to the AR-3, Apartment Residential District (Ordinance #1979-2021; Z20-107) to permit multi-unit residential development. The applicant requests variances to parking lot landscaping and screening and a parking space reduction from 29 to 19 parking spaces for a proposed 19-unit apartment building. Staff finds the requested variances to be supportable because the site and conceptual building elevations are consistent with the Near East Area Plan's (2005) design guidelines. The request is consistent with recent residential infill redevelopment projects in the Near East area and the design is reflective of the housing types in the area.
