File created: 11/18/2019 In control: Public Utilities Committee
On agenda: 12/9/2019 Final action: 12/12/2019
Title: To authorize the Director of the Department of Public Utilities to execute and deliver a Utility Cooperative Agreement by and among the City of Columbus, the Marble Cliff Quarry Community Authority, and Wagenbrenner Development or its designee, to provide for the redevelopment in the City of property bounded by Trabue Road to the south, Dublin Road to the west, the Scioto River to the east and Dublin Road to the north; and to declare an emergency.

Explanation

City Council passed Ordinance No. 3075-2017 on November 22, 2017, authorizing an Economic Development Agreement with Wagenbrenner Development for its project located on land bounded by Trabue Road to the south, Dublin Road to the west, the Scioto River to the east and Dublin Road to the north. Greater than 50 percent of the development site is designated as a brownfield based on its historical use as a quarry and landfill. The site is subject to ongoing environmental monitoring and controls necessitated by that prior use, and the City and Developer have determined that it is in the best interest of the City, the Developer and the future owners of any portion of the development site that a master water meter be installed for the development site and the Marble Cliff Quarry Community Authority formed by City Council be responsible for paying water and sewer charges and fees and for the operation and maintenance of the water and sewer infrastructure, and associated environmental controls and monitoring, located beyond the meter.


Emergency Justification: Emergency legislation is required to allow for immediate execution of the Utility Cooperative Agreement, which is necessary to facilitate the timely completion of the above-described development.

Fiscal Impact: No funding is required for this legislation.
