Planning & Zoning Code Clarification from Mayor Tomko

The Village Council held a public hearing on Ordinance 2019-39 on June 24, 2019 to consider text changes to the Planning and Zoning Code and to make changes to the Zoning Map. Numerous changes needed to be made to the map due to eliminating a few districts, dividing the Parks and Institutional District into 2 separate districts, (parks and institutions) and some parcels that were in an overlay district no longer necessary.

Some property owners who have lots abutting or partially located in the Chagrin River and the Spillway property owner attended the public hearing and objected to map changes that are now being considered by Council. The Village Engineer, Planner and Law Director are working on revising the map shown on Monday night and will present back to Council in the near term. This revised map will remove all parcels that are partially in the river (currently every parcel west of Main Street) that has title to part of the river and had that portion of their property designated as Parks  on the map shown last Monday night (currently designated as Parks and Institutional on the previously adopted zoning  map). This was not an attempt at any form of taking but a result of removing the word “institutional” from the existing zoning; thus “Parks and Institutional” became just Parks. There was no attempt to rezone or change private property to public use, just an inadvertent bad choice of words. These parcels on the revised map will take the zoning designation of the abutting district that zones the non-river portion of their lots. The revised map will remove the changes to all privately owned  parcels considered for change except for Falls Walk which will remove the overlay district and keep it in the R1-C as Windsor hospital no longer exists. The Spillway parcels on Low Street that were zoned parking have been sold and single family homes are currently on them, thus their zoning will change to residential. The former Ivex property to the east of Cleveland Street will retain the over lay zoning and all parcels designated as limited industrial. Council will plan on having a work session in the near term to review these map changes as well as some other issues raised by residents and members of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Affected property owners will be notified in advance of that meeting.

The Village appreciates the input received from the residents and will consider these changes which were a part of a two plus year process of revising the code.
