#2149. CHIPOTLE RESTAURANT – 3530 WARRENSVILLE CENTER ROAD:
Continuation of a Public Hearing on the request of Fred Margulies, Onyx Creative, representing Dan Carducci, Shaker FV Holdings, 3530 Warrensville Center Road, to the Board of Zoning Appeals and City Planning Commission for a Conditional Use Permit, site plan review, a shared parking agreement, variances and subdivision of land in order to construct a new Chipotle Restaurant on Warrensville Center Road, south of Chagrin Boulevard. The review was continued at the January meeting with several outstanding issues including drive-through and on site traffic circulation. A Conditional Use Permit is required for the drive-through pick-up window. Site plan review is required to construct a new restaurant building on this vacant lot. Variances are requested to the requirements regarding the rear buffer, front and side yard maximum building setbacks, parking and lighting. The rear landscape buffer is 7 feet 10 inches at one point at the southern end of the property while code requires a 20-foot wide landscape buffer bordering a residential zoning district. The front building setback is 15 feet with a patio facing Warrensville Center Road. The maximum front yard setback allowed is 10 feet. The side yard setbacks are 56 feet 6 inches to the south and 38 feet 8 inches to the north. Code allows a maximum setback of 1/3 the building height, which is 6 feet 8 inches. There are 27 parking spaces, code requires 31 parking spaces. A shared parking agreement is proposed with the Wendy’s restaurant property at 3516 Warrensville Center Road next door with internal access provided by a driveway between the two properties. The lighting plan shows light encroachment over the southern property line of greater than the 1 foot candle of light trespass allowed by code. A Commercial Mixed Use district design standard variance is requested to the requirement for 60 percent clear first floor windows facing the street. Windows are proposed for 49 percent of the first floor building façade facing Warrensville Center Road. There are 20 outdoor seats on a front patio and 42 interior seats. A variance is required as code allows outdoor seating to only be 30% of the interior seating total. Subdivision of land is required to combine parcel numbers 736-29-045 and 046 into one parcel. The Conditional Use Permit requires Council confirmation.
