Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV22-056

APPLICANT: Janice Wilkins; 460 Stewart Avenue; Columbus, OH 43206.

PROPOSED USE: Habitable space above a detached garage.

COLUMBUS SOUTH SIDE AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site consists of one parcel developed with a single-unit dwelling in the R-2F, Residential District. The requested Council variance will allow habitable space above and next to a newly constructed detached garage. 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. The request also includes a variance to increase the permitted garage height. Staff supports the proposed variances as the request is consistent with similar proposals in urban neighborhoods, and will not introduce an incompatible use to the area.
