ABOUT ME

Tia Deshuk Urban Planning University of Cincinnati (440) 822-8111 deshukti@mail.uc.edu

My name is Tia Deshuk, I am a third year in the School of Planning in the DAAP program at the University of Cincinnati. I am originally from the Cleveland area from Lorain, Ohio. When it came to deciding my future and choosing a college the choice was easy for me. Unlike most high school seniors, I applied to only one school, the University of Cincinnati. When I came across the DAAP program, I knew it was the place for me. Choosing where I wanted to spend the next few years of my life was easy, although deciding what major I wanted is where I was conflicted. I’ve always been fascinated with cities and environments and reading about Urban Planning something clicked. I never knew that it could be a major but I could finally see myself doing something for the rest of my life. That’s how I knew Urban Planning was the right path for me. From my time at UC in the School of Planning, I have grown an appreciation for cities, their environment and sustainability. I want to work to create more sustainable communities across the country. Throughout my portfolio are samples of my work. Thank you for your interest, Tia Deshuk

CLIFTON CASE STUDY

The purpose of this assignment was for each team to become familiar with their selected neighborhood and record their first hand impressions. Studying the selected neighborhood by analyzing and visualizing pertinent data using infographics. In the project we identify, map and analyze several transportation characteristics of the selected neighborhood and learn basic concepts related to a transportation system such as street hierarchy, connectivity, and pedestrian walkability characteristics in the urban environment. The case study is a visual essay that tells the story of the neighborhood succinctly and effectively.


Clifton is a very diverse neighborhood when it comes to race, economic income and age. Clifton does not always provide for all the different ages in the n eighborhood. Since Clifton is so close to the University there are many college age students looking for nearby housing. A benefit for Clifton and University s tudents would be to add more affordable housing. The parking lot behind the buildings on Ludlow Avenue (highlighted in yellow) would be a good spot for a new residental/ commercial complex. Making the building multi-use will create new jobs and add residents to Clifton.

Ludlow Avenue with bike lanes

Clifton is the 13th most walkable neighborhood in Cincinnati with 9,286 residents. People in Clifton can walk to an average of 3 restaurants, bars and coffee shops in 5 minutes. Clifton has some public transportation and does not have many bike lanes. Adding a bike lane down Ludlow Avenu and CLifton Avenu would increase the bike score. Clifton would be a more bike friendly neighborhood bringing in a lot more bike riders. Students coming from campus would have an easier time getting to Clifton if there were bike lanes.

Unlike any typical community arts center, CCAC, Clifton Cultural Arts Center, is uniquely inspired and endowed by the opportunity to create an unparalleled, multi-venue campus while preserving two significant historic buildings adjacent to the established Clifton Recreation Center. Cincinnati Public Schools plans to oust Clifton Cultural Arts Center from the old Clifton School building to make way for a new arts-centered neighborhood school. The district plans to open the new school in fall 2018.

UNDERSTANDING CONTOURS

This project consisted of creating a 3-dimensional contour map from an abstract painting. The purpose of the project was to figure out how to turn a 2-dimensional painting into a elevation model.


HAND SKETCHES

This project I had to draw 3 sectional perspectives of different spots around campus. These hand drawn perspectives show a sectional line while focusing on the buildings or scenes in the background.

CLOVERNOOK PROJECT

The Clovernook project was to create a site design. My site design includes two apartments complexes in the front of the site. In the back of the site there is a multi-use building for recreation or conference space. Also included is an outdoor recreation center. This design brings in the active lifestyle to this community and giving residence options away from private space.

CITY OF UPPER ARLINGTON

To: From: Prepared for Meeting Dated: Variance Requested:

Property Owner/Address: Staff Recommendation: I.

Upper Arlington Board of Zoning and Planning (BZAP) Tia Deshuk, Community Development Intern (tdeshuk@uaoh.net, 614-583-5071) Monday, March 26, 2018 To permit the addition of a front entry 1-car attached garage that would encroach 4 feet into the required 12 foot side yard setback and encroaches X-feet into the required 26 foot minimum side yard sum. Variance Application VAR-XX-18 4546 Crompton Drive (zoned R-1b)

This proposal would permit a front entry 1-car attached garage. The addition will be a single story and all finishes on the addition will match the existing house. The application states, “Most of the adjacent homes are front entrance garages, or have wider driveway approaches. My vehicle will not make the turn to park in the current side load garage. The rear yard backs to a ravine, and the side property line is lined with mature evergreens, to build a detached garage would require cutting down all of the evergreens, and extreme excavation/grade work along the rear ravine. I do not want to cut down all of the evergreens. The garage addition will raise the value/use of the home, which is an improvement to the neighborhood. There is not a practical or cost effective option to build a detached structure on the lot. An attached garage is the only feasible option. At the current 12 foot setback required, the garage would not be large enough to fit my vehicle. �

Approval

Request/Code Requirements/History:

This variance application requests permission to add a front entry single car garage that would encroach 4 feet into the 12 foot side yard setback and would encroach X feet into the 26 foot minimum side yard sum. Article 5.02(C) of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) requires a side yard setback of a 12-feet and a side yard sum of 26 feet minimum for a 2-2.5 story home. Therefore, a variance has been requested.

Upper Arlington Board of Zoning and Planning (BZAP) Tia Deshuk, Community Development Intern (tdeshuk@uaoh.net, 614-583-5071) Monday, January 29, 2018 To permit the construction of a master bedroom closet addition that would encroach 3'-1" into the 31.9-foot minimum rear yard setback and a 300 sq.-ft. shed that exceeds the building cover limit of 29% at 31.1% (Variance Application #BZ-03-18) Yozwiak, 3090 S. Dorchester Rd. (zoned R-1c) Approval

III.

Summary/Staff Recommendation:

 To permit the construction of a one-story master bedroom closet addition that encroaches 3’-1” into the 31.9’ rear yard setback and a shed addition that exceeds the building cover limit of 29% by 2.1%. Staff has reviewed the proposal and is fully supportive of the request. The proposed additions are located on the east side (rear) of the home. The master bedroom closet extends from the rear elevation, encroaching 3’-1” into the rear yard setback (Finding #4). The encroachment area is small, only 39 square feet.). The addition of the shed is adding a building cover of 31.1% only 2.1% over the building cover limit. The project’s impacts on streetscape would be non-existent (Finding #3). The adjacent property to the south already has a shed that sits adjacent to their property in the same location. Any impacts to neighbors are also minimal, as the backyard is surrounded by mature landscape screening. For these reasons, Staff recommends approval of the variance.

Request/Code Requirements:

This variance application requests permission to construct an addition to the existing master bedroom closet and a 300sq. ft. shed. The addition of the master bedroom closet would encroach 3’-1” into the 31.9’ rear yard setback and the shed exceeds the building cover limit of 29% at 31.1%. Therefore, the proposal necessitates a variance to the City’s Unified Development Ordinance (UDO), to Article 5.02(C). Variance Application 2017-19908 was submitted on December 13, 2017.
