Explanation

 

Council Variance Application: CV21-112

 

APPLICANT: Keith Massa; Schottenstein Property Group; c/o David Hodge, Atty.; 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 260; New Albany, OH 43054.

                     

PROPOSED USE: Industrial or commercial development.

 

NORTHEAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

 

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The applicant has received a recommendation of approval from Staff and the Development Commission for a concurrent rezoning (Ordinance #1342-2022; Z21-087) to the L-M, Limited Manufacturing District for an intended office and warehouse development or future commercial or industrial development. The requested Council variance will permit maneuvering areas, parking spaces, and loading spaces to be divided by parcel lines, reduce the parking setback along Agler Road, and permit headlight screening in the right-of-way, subject to the approval of the Department of Public Service. The requested variances are supportable as they result from parcels not being able to be combined due to different taxing districts, and because of a stormwater protection zone which runs diagonally through the property along with required right-of-way dedication along Agler Road.

 

Title

 

To grant a Variance from the provisions of Sections 3312.03(D), Administrative requirements; 3312.21(B), Landscaping and screening; 3312.25, Maneuvering; 3312.27(2), Parking setback line; 3312.29, Parking space; and 3312.51(1)(2), Loading space, of the Columbus City Codes; for the property located at 3573 AGLER RD. (43219), to permit reduced development standards for an industrial development in the L-M, Limited Manufacturing District (Council Variance #CV21-112).

 

Body

 

WHEREAS, by application #CV21-112, the owner of property at 3573 AGLER RD. (43219), requests a Council variance to permit reduced development standards concurrent with a rezoning request to the L-M, Limited Manufacturing District; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 3312.03(D), Administrative requirements, requires parking spaces to be provided on the same lot as the use they are intended to serve, while the applicant proposes otherwise compliant parking that may be divided by parcel lines, resulting in required parking that may not be on the same lot as the building(s) which they will serve; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 3312.21(B), Landscaping and screening, requires that any portion of a parking lot abutting any public street be screened for headlights on the perimeter adjacent to the public street, while the applicant proposes no parking lot screening within the parking setback area along Agler Road due to insufficient on-site width for planting, but requests to install compliant screening within the public right of way subject to the approval of the Department of Public Service; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 3312.25, Maneuvering, requires parking spaces to have sufficient access and maneuvering area on the lot where the parking spaces are located, while the applicant proposes maneuvering over parcel lines, but with the required maneuvering area being provided; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 3312.27(2), Parking setback line, requires a minimum parking setback line of 25 feet along Agler Road, while the applicant proposes a parking setback line of one foot; and

 

WHEREAS, 3312.29, Parking space, requires 90 degree parking spaces to be no less than 9 feet wide by 18 feet deep, while the applicant proposes parking spaces that are divided by parcel lines, but with the overall parking space meeting the required dimensions; and

 

WHEREAS, Section 3312.51(1)(2), Loading space, requires loading spaces to be on the same lot as the use they are intended to serve with minimum dimensions of not less than 12 feet in width and 50 feet in length, exclusive of any driveway, aisle, or other circulation area, while the applicant proposes to permit loading spaces to be divided by parcel lines or to be on separate parcels than the buildings they will serve within the development, but with the overall loading spaces meeting the required dimensions and maneuvering area, and the required minimum number of loading spaces being provided; and

 

WHEREAS, the Northeast Area Commission recommends approval; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Departments recommend approval as the requested variances result from parcels not being able to be combined due to different taxing districts, and because of a stormwater protection zone which runs diagonally through the property along with required right-of-way dedication along Agler Road; and

 

WHEREAS, this ordinance requires separate submission for all applicable permits and Certificates of Occupancy for the proposed use; and

 

WHEREAS, said variance will not adversely affect the surrounding property or surrounding neighborhood; and

 

WHEREAS,  the granting of said variance will not impair an adequate supply of light and air to adjacent properties or unreasonably increase the congestion of public streets, or unreasonably diminish or impair established property values within the surrounding area, or otherwise impair the public health, safety, comfort, morals, or welfare of the inhabitants of the City of Columbus; and

  

WHEREAS, the granting of said variance will alleviate the difficulties encountered by the owners of the property located at 3573 AGLER RD. (43219), in using said property as desired; now, therefore:
