Explanation

 

Rezoning Application:  Z19-023

 

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

                     

PROPOSED USE:  Multi-unit residential development.

 

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION:  Approval (3-2) on June 13, 2019.

 

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION:  Approval.  The site is developed with single-unit dwellings in the L-C-2, Limited Commercial, RR, Rural Residential, and PUD-4, Planned Unit Development districts. The proposed L-AR-1, Limited Apartment Residential District will permit a multi-unit residential development with a maximum of 139 units (16.83 units/acre). The limitation text commits to a site plan and building elevations and includes development standards addressing density, open space, lighting, and graphics provisions. The site is located within the boundaries of the Northwest Plan (2016) which recommends “Mixed Use 1” along West Dublin-Granville Road (SR 161) and “Low-Density Residential” for the northern parcels. The Plan recognizes that higher densities may be appropriate where more intense uses are present. The Plan also recommends consideration of compatibility with adjacent uses and impacts on natural resources when reviewing higher density proposals. Additionally, the Plan provides design guidelines regarding sensitive site design, building materials, front elevations, open space, landscaping, tree preservation, and connectivity. The Planning Division Staff has determined that the proposed development meets the higher density criteria in the Northwest Plan with its location immediately adjacent to West Dublin Granville Road and more intense commercial uses, and its inclusion of open space, natural resource protection, and buffering for the single-unit dwellings to the north. A concurrent Council variance (Ordinance #2799-2020; CV19-021) has been submitted to maintain two existing single-unit dwellings within the proposed development, and to reduce setback, perimeter yard, and vision clearance triangle requirements.

WHEREAS, the Development Commission recommends approval of said zoning change; and
