Explanation

Rezoning Application Z22-031

APPLICANT: Hannah Bubnar; 2535 Linbaugh Road; Columbus, OH 43132.

PROPOSED USE: An above-ground swimming pool for an existing single-unit dwelling.

DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval (6-0) on June 9, 2022.

WESTLAND AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The 0.34± acre site consists of one parcel developed with a single-unit dwelling zoned in the L-R-2, Limited Residential District. The requested R-2, Residential District will permit an above-ground swimming pool as an accessory use to the single-unit dwelling. Rezoning is necessary because the current L-R-2 district, which was established in 1994, prohibits above-ground swimming pools. This request is supported as the principal use will not change as the single-unit dwelling is already constructed. It is staff’s preference that restrictions for features such as swimming pools be established by deed restrictions rather than as zoning limitations. Although such limitations are no longer accommodated in rezoning ordinances, there remain older zoning districts that still include them such as this case.
