Explanation
BA21-005

Background:

A boundary adjustment between the City of Columbus and the City of Whitehall has been proposed. The site is in East Broad Street, from Midcliff Drive eastward to the east bank of Big Walnut Creek, and consists entirely of right of way. The proposed adjustment moves the City of Columbus corporate boundary slightly southward, to exclude the right of way. The transfer will place the entirety of the right of way along this span of East Broad Street within the City of Whitehall. 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 Whitehall City Council. Columbus approval will allow the adjustment proposal to be submitted to Franklin County for finalization.

Fiscal Impact:

None
