Explanation
BA20-006

Background:

A 3.9 acre boundary adjustment between the City of Columbus and the City of Reynoldsburg has been proposed. The site includes a portion of the right-of-way associated with Brice Road between I-70 and Livingston Avenue, as well as privately held parcels on the east side of Brice Road. The proposed adjustment moves the City of Columbus corporate boundary slightly westward, placing the entire Brice Road right of way within Reynoldsburg. The private parcels are already surrounded on three sides by Reynoldsburg.

This legislation is being filed in response to the provisions of the Ohio Revised Code - section 709.37 regarding municipal boundary adjustments. The City of Reynoldsburg approved parallel legislation in 2019. Columbus approval will allow the adjustment proposal to be submitted to Franklin County for finalization.

Fiscal Impact:

None
