Shifting office and employment demographics are re-shaping suburbs and urban areas.
Dublin has defined itself as a premier employment center in the Columbus region since the 1980s. Business retention and attraction is vital to our community’s corporate income tax base which funds City services, quality infrastructure and community amenities. To remain competitive, the City of Dublin’s Economic Development and Planning teams have been studying the existing conditions, market conditions, stakeholder requirements, and effects of the changing work space demands on older suburban office complexes – legacy office spaces in older office parks like Metro Place.
The study area is approximately 1,000 acres and includes all of the city’s older (legacy) office parks within the Metro, Blazer, and Emerald business districts and the Frantz Road corridor. This study was initiated in 2015 with public engagement and input in 2016 and 2017. The next steps will be Planning & Zoning Commission review and adoption by City Council.
“One of the underpinnings of this planning process has been engagement with two key constituencies: the employees who work in the planning area and the residents who live in the adjacent neighborhoods,” said Planning Director Vince Papsidero. “A variety of outreach efforts have been undertaken that has provided us with a rich amount of input, which has shaped the final policies in this plan.”
The public is invited to review updates to the Draft Plan. The City’s Planning team will be available to answer questions regarding updates to the Plan.
All materials will be available on the project website:
