Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-078

APPLICANT: Farris Development; c/o Brenda Parker, Agent; 405 North Front Street; Columbus, OH 43215.

PROPOSED USE: Three two-unit dwellings.

NORTH CENTRAL AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Disapproval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of six undeveloped parcels zoned in the ARLD, Apartment Residential District. The requested Council variance will allow the development of three two-unit dwellings on three proposed lots. A Council variance is necessary because the ARLD, Apartment Residential District only permits a two-unit dwelling when the lot meets specific platting and area district exception criteria (CC 3333.055). Although the North Central Plan (2002) recommends single-unit residential land uses for this location, staff supports the increased density as the site has frontage along Joyce Avenue which is a major corridor, and because the existing zoning would permit an apartment house with up to 15 units. The proposed dwellings are consistent with the established development pattern along Joyce Avenue. The request will not introduce an incompatible use to the surrounding neighborhood.
