Three public hearings on Planning Commission docket

Three separate public hearings are on the agenda of tonight’s Worthington Planning Commission meeting, which is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the Worthington City Council chambers.

Joe Kinley has submitted a request to allow a shed to encroach 3 feet into the required 3-foot side setback and 2 feet into the required 6-foot setback from the house as required by city code. His property is located at 1434 South Shore Drive in an R-1 district, and his request will be considered by the Planning Commission in its capacity as the Board of Zoning Appeals.

Additionally, Maria Parga has submitted a request to subdivide an existing lot she owns located at 1906 Oxford St. Both lots resulting from the proposed subdivision will fail to comply with the 10-foot side setback requirements for ‘B-3’ – General Business District properties, the current zoning of the subject property. Her request will also be considered by the Board of Zoning Appeals.

The third public hearing will pertain to the Light of the World Church, which has applied for a conditional use permit to operate a church in the existing building located at 1521 Oxford St.. City code requires that churches, temples and other places of worship require a conditional use permit in the ‘B-3’ – General Business District, which is the zoning designation of the subject property.

Actions taken by the Planning Commission on Tuesday serve as recommendations for final action by the Worthington City Council.

Also on Tuesday evening’s agenda are review and possible approval of the 2022-2026 Capital Improvement Program, as well as discussions on self-storage facilities and how to define the term “impervious surface.”
