An Ordinance to Regulate the Minimum Frontage Requirements and to Establish Maximum Coverage Requirements for Building Lots Within the Village

Introduced by: Mr. Schaer

WHEREAS, Council of the Village of Riverlea has determined to regulate the required minimum frontage of building lots in the Village and to regulate the maximum amount of any building lot within the Village that may be developed with impermeable surfaces as an aid to maintaining the aesthetic integrity of the neighborhood as a whole, and thereby to promote the common welfare of the residents of the Village; and

WHEREAS, Council of the Village has determined that establishing the frontage requirements and lot coverage requirements will benefit residents of the Village.

Be It Ordained by the Council of the Village of Riverlea, State of Ohio:

Section l. Minimum Frontage Requirements.

  1. Minimum Street Frontage Requirements in the subdivision of parcels.. That Riverlea Code Section §151.002(C) is hereby amended by deleting the current version thereof and replacing it in its entirety with the following:
    (C)
    1. Village Council shall approve no instrument of conveyance which, if recorded, would result in a "subdivision" (as such term is defined in R.C. §711.001(B)) of land in the Village, unless the newly designated parcel created as a result of such instrument conveyance has continuous frontage upon a publicly-dedicated and improved street for a distance that is at least as great as the greater of the following two distances: (i) fifty (50) feet, and (ii) a distance equal to the arithmetic average of the street frontage of all lots that are both located on the same street and within 500 feet of the outside boundaries of the new lot created by such instrument of conveyance.
    2. As used in this Section (C), the term 'lot' shall mean any of the following:
      1. any lot or parcel of property, including any reserve, identified for separate conveyance on the original plat of the subdivision of the The Van de Boe-Hager Co. Addition No. 11 Known as Riverlea, of record in Plat Book 16, at Page 55, in the Office of the Recorder of Franklin County, Ohio, or if not included within such plat, then as such parcel was separately owned on the date of incorporation of the Village;
      2. any lot or parcel of property separately identified as an individual tax parcel or to which a separate parcel identification number was assigned on the records of the Franklin County Auditor as of June 16, 2008;
      3. all or any part of a street or alley originally identified on the original plat of the subdivision of the The Van de Boe-Hager Co. Addition No. 11 Known as Riverlea, of record in Plat Book 16, at Page 55, in the Office of the Recorder of Franklin County, Ohio, but which part of a street or alley has subsequently been vacated and is no longer maintained for public use.
    3. In determining the 'arithmetic average' of the street frontage of lots located on the same street for purposes of this Section (C):
      1. only those lots located on the same side of the street as the parcel for which the computation is made is located shall be included,
      2. the term 'lot' shall have the above described meaning even though one or more lots, or parts thereof, have been combined into a single tax parcel by the Franklin County Auditor, and
      3. in determining the frontage of corner lots, i.e., lots that border more than one street as originally platted, the lot lines along each street shall be extended into the street right-of-way to the point of intersection, and such point shall be used as the corner of the lot for purposes of determining the street frontage of that lot."
  2. Minimum Street Frontage Requirements for the use of lots. That Riverlea Code Section 151.022(C) is hereby amended by deleting the current version thereof and replacing it in its entirety with the following:
    (C)
    1. No house or other residential structure shall be erected or constructed on any lot or parcel of land containing less linear frontage on publicly-dedicated and improved street than the greater of the following two distances: (i) fifty (50) feet, and (ii) a distance equal to the arithmetic average of the street frontage of all lots located both on the same street and within 500 feet of the outside boundaries of such lot or parcel; provided that one single-family dwelling may be erected on any lot now separately owned as shown by the records in the office of the County Recorder of Franklin County, Ohio and for which the County Auditor of Franklin County, Ohio, now maintains a separate tax parcel identification number.
    2. As used in this Section (C), the term 'lot' shall mean any of the following:
      1. any lot or parcel of property, including any reserve, identified for separate conveyance on the original plat of the subdivision of the The Van de Boe-Hager Co. Addition No. 11 Known as Riverlea, of record in Plat Book 16, at Page 55, in the Office of the Recorder of Franklin County, Ohio, or if not included within such plat, then as such parcel was separately owned on the date of incorporation of the Village;
      2. any lot or parcel of property separately identified as an individual tax parcel or to which a separate parcel identification number was assigned on the records of the Franklin County Auditor as of June 16, 2008;
      3. all or any part of a street or alley originally identified on the original plat of the subdivision of the The Van de Boe-Hager Co. Addition No. 11 Known as Riverlea, of record in Plat Book 16, at Page 55, in the Office of the Recorder of Franklin County, Ohio, but which part of a street or alley has subsequently been vacated and is no longer maintained for public use.
    3. In determining the 'arithmetic average' of the street frontage of lots located on the same street for purposes of this Section (C):
      1. only those lots located on the same side of the street as the parcel for which the computation is made is located shall be included,
      2. the term 'lot' shall have the above described meaning even though one or more lots, or parts thereof, have been combined into a single tax parcel by the Franklin County Auditor, and
      3. in determining the frontage of corner lots, i.e., lots that border more than one street as originally platted, the lot lines along each street shall be extended into the street right-of-way to the point of intersection, and such point shall be used as the corner of the lot for purposes of determining the street frontage of that lot."
Section 2. Maximum Lot Coverage. That Riverlea Code Section 151.022(D) is hereby adopted, to provide as follows:

(D) Structures (including all buildings), parking areas (including garages, parking pads and driveways), decks, patios, swimming pools, sidewalks and other hard-surfaced areas shall not cover more than 40% of the total lot area on any lot or parcel."

Section 3. Effective Date. That this Ordinance shall take effect from and after the earliest date permitted by law.

Section 4. Open Meetings. This Council finds and determines that all formal actions of this Council concerning and relating to the passage of this Ordinance were taken in an open meeting of this Council and that all deliberations of this Council that resulted in those formal actions were in meetings open to the public in compliance with law.
