Explanation

Rezoning Application: Z21-048

APPLICANT: Brandilyn Fry, AIA; Hasenstab Architects; 190 North Union Street, Suite 400; Akron, OH 44304.

PROPOSED USE: Behavioral hospital.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (6-0) on August 12, 2021.

COLUMBUS SOUTH SIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a behavioral hospital in the CPD, Commercial Planned Development District. The requested CPD, Commercial Planned Development District will permit an expansion to the facility, and incorporates a parking space reduction. Rezoning is necessary as the underlying CPD text (Z90-088) requires compliance with minimum parking space requirements. The site is located within the boundaries of the Near Southside Area Plan (2011), which recommends “Institutional” land uses for this location. The CPD text proposes I, Institutional and C-2, Office Commercial uses, provides setback, lot coverage, and sign height provisions, and includes a commitment to a site plan. An 8,269 square foot building addition is planned with the total number of beds for the facility being 210, thus requiring 525 parking spaces while 183 spaces are proposed. A request for an exemption from the Division of Parking Services requirement for a parking study has been approved based on the nature of the use, and the proposed parking variance is supported. The request remains consistent with the institutional land use recommendation of the Near Southside Area Plan. The site plan also includes sufficient landscaping, open space, and walking paths, and the proposed addition areas are located such that they are not visible from the street, and are otherwise consistent in terms of the Plan’s site design recommendations.
