Background:

A boundary adjustment between the City of Columbus and the City of Hilliard has been proposed. The site is located on the south side of Scioto Darby Road, southeast of Walcutt Road and consists entirely of right of way.

The transfer will place the entirety of the right of way along this span of Scioto Darby Road within the City of Hilliard. This legislation is being filed in response to the provisions of the Ohio Revised Code - section 709.37 regarding municipal boundary adjustments. Parallel legislation is being submitted to Hilliard City Council. Columbus approval will allow the adjustment proposal to be submitted to Franklin County for finalization.
