Agenda Report # 110
WHEREAS, James E. McVay representing the owner Leary & Brown, Inc. is the owner of the remnant Lot 15 "C" in the proposed Fourth Addition to Whitesville Walk; and,
WHEREAS, Section 7.8.3.H of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) requires a cul-de-sac or temporary turn-around at the end of dead-end streets; and,
WHEREAS, there are no immediate plans to extend the street nor has a permanent or temporary cul-de-sac been provided; and,
WHEREAS, the owner of the lot has requested a variance to the requirement to provide a permanent or temporary turn-around in order to plat the lot and construct a single family residence.
NOW, THEREFORE, THE COUNCIL OF COLUMBUS, GEORGIA, HEREBY RESOLVES AS FOLLOWS:
That a variance to Columbus Georgia UDO Section 7.8.3.H is hereby granted to Leary & Brown, Inc. to plat and develop Lot 15 "C" in the Fourth Addition to Whitesville Walk without construction of a permanent cul-de-sac or temporary turn-around. The developer has agreed to install a permanent barrier at the end of the current street in compliance with the fire code and to provide a temporary turn around or extend the existing street within a year of acquisition, if they are able to acquire the adjoining property. Pursuant to Columbus Georgia UDO Section 7.8.3.K, this council finds as follows:
(2) Failure to grant the variance would result in exceptional hardship; and,
(3) Council has received and reviewed recommendations of the Department of Engineering, the Department of Planning, the Department of Public Works, the Columbus Police Department and the Columbus Fire & EMS Department concerning this variance request; and,
(4) The grant of a variance will not interfere with the provision of City Services along the impacted street, inhibit the access of public safety vehicles into the affected area, result in extraordinary public expense or otherwise threaten the safety of the public.
