Title: To determine that the petition for expansion of the Jeffrey Place New Community Authority complies with the requirements of the Ohio Revised Code and to fix a date and place for a public hearing on that petition for expansion; and to declare an emergency.
Explanation
BACKGROUND: The Jeffrey Place New Community Authority was created by City Council in 2004 to assist with the redevelopment of the 43 acre former Jeffrey Mining site located at the northeast corner of 4th Street and I-670. The developer of that property and the former Columbus Coated Fabrics site in Weinland Park have petitioned City Council to add the Columbus Coated Fabrics site to the Authority to assist with the redevelopment of that property as well. By this ordinance, City Council determines that the petition to expand the Authority complies with the requirements of Section 349.03 of the Ohio Revised Code and fixes the time and place for a hearing on the petition.
