Title: To authorize and direct the City Clerk to execute and sign a petition on behalf of the City of Columbus to be presented to the Board of County Commissioners of Delaware County by Evans Farm Land Development Company, LLC to create a new community authority and new community district under Chapter 349 of the Ohio Revised Code; and to declare an emergency.
Explanation
Background: Evans Farm Land Development Company, an Ohio limited liability company (the “Developer”) is developing an approximately 1,159.6 acre residential and commercial development in Orange Township and Berlin Township in Delaware County, Ohio. The Developer will submit a petition (the “Petition”) to Delaware County, Ohio (the “County”) requesting the establishment of a new community authority and new community district to be named “Evans Farm NCA” for the purposes of developing the area in a multiple phase and multiple year development as one functionally interrelated community in accordance with Ohio Revised Code Chapter 349 of the Ohio Revised Code. The Developer is required to obtain the approval of the Petition by “proximate cities” as defined in Section 349.01(M) of the Ohio Revised Code. The City is a “proximate city” pursuant to Section 349.01(M) of the Ohio Revised Code because the southern edge of the development is within five miles of the most populous city in an adjoining county, the City of Columbus in Franklin County. The Developer is requesting the City’s approval so it may move forward with seeking the County’s approval of creation of the Evans Farm NCA to allow for development and financing of the public infrastructure improvements needed to support the Evans Farm NCA through the levying of a 10 mill community development charge on the property within the Evans Farm NCA. The City’s Department of Development and the City Attorney’s Office have reviewed the Petition and it is sufficient to meet the requirements of Chapter 349 of the Ohio Revised Code. The Developer has requested that the ordinance be approved as an emergency for the immediate preservation of the public peace, property, health or safety to take advantage of the prime construction season.

Fiscal Impact: No funding is required for this legislation.
