Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV22-077

APPLICANT: Willie Draughon; 1779 East Main Street; Columbus, OH 43205.

PROPOSED USE: Conform existing single-unit dwelling.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The requested variance will conform an existing single-unit dwelling in the C-4, Commercial District. A Council variance is necessary because residential uses are only permitted above specified commercial uses in the C-4 district. The site is located within the planning boundaries of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which recommends “Higher Density Residential/Mixed Use” land uses for this location. The dwelling has been long established on this lot, and is consistent with the residential uses that are prevalent in the surrounding neighborhood. A hardship exists because the non-conforming nature of the site precludes financing options and prevents the owners from further improving the property. Approval of this request will not add a new or incompatible use to the area.
