Zoning applicant; 875 Jasonway Ave. Savko Bros. Properties is requesting rezoning to M-2 district uses and M district development standards. This rezoning will allow the business owner to store construction equipment including but not limited to rollers, traction engines, steel road places, backhoes etc… on the back 0.43 acres of their lot.

Election Results will be announced at the end of the meeting.

At the June 24 Special Zoning Meeting, NWCA approved the request from Dave Fox Remodeling to redesign their parking lot to add seven spaces. The redesign will not affect ingress/egress and will not affect the view from the street or from adjacent businesses.

The Board also recommended for approval the Sheetz restaurant with fuel service at the site of the Winking Lizard and Budget car rental at Bethel and Godown. The approval includes the condition that the traffic improvements at the corner be completed before breaking ground on the restaurant/fuel station. These improvements were approved by the City and are expected to ease traffic flow and wait times at the corner.

Sheep Farm updates

Sheep Farm

October 2019– Trustee Roy Wentzel writes “Good news from the acting CRPD Director, Paul Rakoski, the design for the Historic Sheep 🐑 Farm is in the Capital budget for 2020.  Also, OSU will soon be vacating the property and the City will put up a fence to keep any illegal dumping from happening on the site.  OSU will also remove everything from the property that doesn’t belong like some of the dumping that has already occurred and removal of hay bales, old equipment, old RV, etc. Once that has been completed the city will bush hog the entire property and mow a walking path around the park!  They will keep that mowed until permanent path is installed.  At some point they will of course remove the fence so the park will be open!”

Roy is also advocating to use the property for neighborhood events in the short term and a library in the long term!

Sheep Farm closing delayed 12-27-18

Comments from Trustee Roy Wentzel- “I just received an update from Sophia Fifner with Columbus Parks and Recreation regarding The Historic Sheep 🐑 Farm. OSU will be conducting a second environmental study to ensure any and all contaminates have been dealt with before turning over the property to the City.  New closing date is July 15th.  I think we can all agree that we would rather be safe than sorry regarding this issue!”
