Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-045

APPLICANT: Woodfield Park LLC; c/o Jeffrey L. Brown, Atty.; 37 West Broad Street, Suite 460; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Multi-unit residential development with commercial access and reduced perimeter yard.

NORTHEAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The requested Council variance will permit an access easement through property zoned L-AR-1, Limited Apartment Residential District (Ordinance #1261-2020; Z20-010) to be used for vehicular access to/from adjacent commercial properties. A variance is necessary because the AR-1, Apartment Residential District does not permit vehicular access for off-site commercial uses. The site is also subject to a perimeter yard reduction variance granted with Ordinance #1262-2020 (CV20-015), passed June 18, 2020. Staff supports the variance as it will allow a consolidated access point at a signalized intersection onto North Cassady Avenue as required by the Division of Traffic Management and the development texts of adjacent commercial zoning districts. The previously approved perimeter yard variance is being carried over with this request.
