CONSTRUCTION BIDS ACCEPTED: Accepted bids paved the way for the planned construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Brand Road and Coffman Road, and the renovation of the historic Holder-Wright House. The Holder-Wright property will be remodeled to appear as it looked at the turn of the 20th century and is the beginning of future plans for the site that will include interpretive talks, a venue for small meetings and artifact display.
AMENDING DUBLIN COMMUNITY PLAN: City Council will consider amending the 2007 Dublin Community Plan, which includes updates to major planning initiatives, changes and trends that have occurred in the past five years, including the Bridge Street District and West Innovation District. For the first time, the plan has been presented as a fully interactive website to enhance public access and allow for future amendments to be efficiently incorporated and communicated.
CREATION OF COMMUNITY SERVICE OFFICER PROGRAM: Council will consider the creation of a Community Service Officer Program composed of volunteer Dublin residents who are graduates of the police department’s Citizens Police Academy. Community service officers will be tasked with responding to motor vehicle lockouts, deploying advisory speed trailer equipment, conducting vacation house watch checks, enforcing city parking regulations and more. The purpose of this initiative is to enhance the overall safety of the community and provide assistance to the police in addressing issues of community concern.
LAND REZONED FOR NEW MUIRFIELD HOMES: Council approved the rezoning of 12.05 acres of land on the east side of Drake Road from rural district to planned unit development. The development will consist of 18 single-family, detached residential lots and 4.5 acres of open space. The road will be renamed Stansbury Drive, and the proposed development will be part of the Muirfield Village Association.
AMENDING APPROPRIATIONS FOR I-270/US 33 INTERCHANGE: Ordinance 58-13 amends the annual appropriation plan by designating additional funds in the amount of $3.2 million for the I-270/US 33 Interchange from the balance of the Upper Metro TIF. The funding request resulted from the expedited timeframe for construction, and the Ohio Department of Transportation’s funding request from the City of Dublin to complete preliminary and detailed design.
