We now have a petition to approve a new SID in the East Main Street area, from Bexley to Whitehall, to be known as the “East Main Street Special Improvement District, (East Main Street SID). The property owners have initiated a one petition process in which the property owners of at least 60% of the front footage of all real property located within the District signed that they are interested in the creation of a SID and they approve of the Plan for Improvements and Services to be provided by the SID.

This legislation is one of the first actions required by Chapter 1710 of the Ohio Revised Code. City Council must approve the Initial Plan of Improvements and Services (attached) of the East Main Street Special Improvement District of Columbus, Inc., an Ohio not-for-profit corporation organized pursuant to Chapter 1710 of the Revised Code.
