Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV22-007

APPLICANT: Michael and Kathryn Green; 458 East Whittier Street; Columbus, OH 43206.

PROPOSED USE: Two single-unit dwellings on one lot.

COLUMBUS SOUTH SIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a single-unit dwelling and detached garage in the R-2F, Residential District. The requested Council variance will permit the construction of a second single-unit dwelling at the rear of the property. A Council variance is necessary because the R-2F district permits only one- and two-unit dwellings and does not permit the arrangement of two single-unit dwellings on the same lot. The request includes variances to vision clearance for an existing fence, lot area, building lines, minimum and maximum side yards, rear yard, and a parking reduction from four spaces required to two spaces provided. The existing detached garage is within the required ten foot clear vision triangle at the intersection of the rear alley and South Washington Street, but a variance is not included due to concerns from the Division of Traffic Management, and if replaced, the garage will be relocated or a variance will be sought at that time. The site is within the planning boundaries of the South Side Plan (2014), which recommends “Medium-High Density” residential uses, and includes early adoption of the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) Design Guidelines (2018). The proposal is consistent with the Plan’s land use recommendation, does not add a new or intrusive use to the neighborhood, and is compatible with the recent development pattern in historic urban neighborhoods.
