Dublin City Council is expected to vote on three ordinances that would help clear the way for a 73-unit residential development to be built off Hyland-Croy Road.

The development had hinged on Union County Commissioners' annexation approval of 47.366 acres from Jerome Township into Dublin. The commissioners approved the annexation request Dec. 15.

Now, Dublin City Council is scheduled to vote May 22 on three separate ordinances that would accept the annexation, change the zoning from rural to planned unit development and solidify an infrastructure agreement with developer Pulte Homes.

Pulte spokeswoman Valerie Dolenga said the development still needs to go through Dublin's final development plan and final engineering processes.

Ideally, infrastructure development could begin by early next year, and home construction could begin mid-next year, she said.

The community is being marketed to those ages 55 and older, including pre-retirees, retirees and empty-nesters.
