This story shocked me a bit because of the last paragraph I’ve posted here about the “six-month moratorium on subdivisions” that the city of Worthington declared. I’ve never heard of anything like that, but it sounds like something I’d like to hear happening more often and in longer increments.
Seriously though, is this a strategy that gets used with any frequency?
Opinions differ on future of Olentangy River Road
Thursday, December 6, 2007
Should the city protect the so-called rural character of Olentangy River Road, with its rolling acres of natural terrain?
Or is development along the stretch of roadway south of Dublin-Granville Road inevitable — so why not rewrite city zoning laws to make the transition as palatable as possible?
Attempting to answer those questions netted many answers and opinions from the approximately 40 residents who turned out to discuss the road’s future at a meeting last Thursday at the Municipal Building.
A second meeting is set for Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. at the same location.
The city has declared a six-month moratorium on subdivisions on Olentangy River Road south of Dublin-Granville Road. During that time, residents and city leaders will decide how, or whether, city zoning ordinances should change.
