Explanation
BACKGROUND: Chapter 1710 of the Ohio Revised Code, effective September 29, 1994 provides for the creation of Special Improvement Districts, by non-profit corporations governed by trustees elected by the property owners for the provision of special services in a designated district. The City of Columbus currently has five Special Improvement Districts known as (SIDS); they are the Capital Crossroads SID, Discovery SID, Short North SID, Morse Road SID and the University District SID, all have been very successful. We now have a petition to approve a new SID in the East Main Street area between Bexley and Whitehall to be known as the East Main Street Special Improvement District (East Main Street SID) within the boundaries of the map, included in the Petition. The property owners have initiated a one petition process in which the owners of at least 60% of the front footage of all real property located within the District signed, acknowledging that they are interested in the creation of a Special Improvement District and they approve of the Plan for Improvements and Services to be provided by the East Main Street SID.

This Council is being asked to approve the Petition, and the Articles of Incorporation (Attached) of the East Main Street Special Improvement District of Columbus, Inc., an Ohio not-for-profit corporation.

The Petition and Articles of Incorporation are on file with the Clerk of the Columbus City Council.

Emergency action is required to allow the East Main Street Special Improvement District of Columbus, Inc. to continue to establish a Special Improvement District in a timely manner.
