Representatives from Graeter's Ice Cream are expected to appear before the Hilliard Planning and Zoning Commission on Thursday, Nov. 9, to present plans for a store at the northwest corner of Scioto Darby Road and High School Drive.

The company is seeking approval of a site plan and a conditional-use permit to build an ice-cream shop with a drive-thru window.

The commission meets at 7 p.m. at the Hilliard Municipal Building, 3800 Municipal Way.

Graeter's application was postponed Oct. 12 and first appeared on the commission's Sept. 14 agenda.

City planner John Talentino said last month the postponement was meant to allow city leaders to learn what times and days Graeter's has the most customers and review a traffic study, among other considerations.

The ice-cream shop, which would be approximately 2,500 square feet and made of red brick, would be built on 0.68 acre that consists of three lots, each with a structure on it.

All three buildings would be demolished to build the ice-cream shop, Talentino said.

The lots' owner, Cincinnati-based Graeter's Holding Co., is expected to unify the three lots into a single lot, Talentino said.

Tim Philpott, vice president of marketing for Graeter's, said last month the company is "simply exploring a new location in Hilliard (and hopes) to make an announcement later this year."
