Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV22-020

APPLICANT: Patrick & Sarah Ahern; 253 Lansing Street; Columbus, OH 43206.

PROPOSED USE: Habitable space/guest suite above a detached garage.

GERMAN VILLAGE COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of a single-unit dwelling zoned in the R-2F, Residential District. The requested Council variance will permit the construction of a detached garage with habitable space above. A Council variance is necessary because the zoning code only permits habitable space above a garage when connected directly to habitable space in a dwelling. Included in the request is a variance to increase the garage height. Staff supports the proposed use and garage height variance as the request is consistent with similar proposals that have been approved in the area.
