Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-053

APPLICANT: Marshall Acquisitions LLC; c/o Donald Plank, Atty.; Plank Law Firm; 411 East Town Street, Floor 2; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Impound lot.

GREATER SOUTH EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a warehouse building zoned in the M-1, Manufacturing District. The site is subject to a Zoning Code violation (20470-04446) for initiating impound operations without a Certificate of Zoning Clearance. The requested Council variance will allow an impound lot and salvage yard use in an M-1, Manufacturing District, subject to an approved Special Permit from the Columbus Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA). The variance is necessary because impound lots and salvage yards are permitted only in the M, Manufacturing District with a Special Permit. The site is within the planning area of the Hamilton Road Corridor Revitalization Plan (2008), which recommends industrial and warehouse land uses at this location, and includes early adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018). Staff is supportive of the request as the site is adjacent to other manufacturing uses and approval will not introduce an incompatible use to the area. Planning Division staff continues to recommend landscaping and screening along the Groves Road frontage, but does not condition their support on this recommendation. The applicant will be required to complete Special Permit Application #BZA21-056 for which the Zoning Code provides that additional conditions and limitations can be imposed.
