Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-044

APPLICANT: Claudia Realty, LLC; c/o Michael Shannon, Atty. and Eric Zartman, Atty.; Underhill & Hodge; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054

Staff supports both variances as the applicant has committed to providing six street trees and additional landscaping along the Fairwood Avenue frontage, and because the existing building acts as a screening element between the L-C-4 district and residentially-zoned property to the south.
