Grove City Council on Feb. 19 is expected to vote on legislation to approve zoning, an annexation agreement and a development plan for the 209.5-acre Farmstead development to be located on the west side of Jackson Pike (state Route 104) and north of Scioto Meadows Boulevard.
Council's expected vote Jan. 22 was postponed to allow more time for matters to be addressed.
Councilwoman Christine Houk, who represents Ward 3, the area where the development would be built, said she has received letters and emails from more than 15 residents since that meeting.
“The concerns they (residents) are raising have to do with the amount of traffic that would be generated by the development, speed-limit issues, the school site that is proposed as part of the development area and the overall impact the development would have on our community, including the township and the police and fire departments,” Houk said.
Grand Communities is proposing the project, which would include 535 houses, divided into nine subareas. A total of 415 single-family houses and 120 attached single-family units are proposed. The Farmstead site is in Jackson Township and would be annexed into Grove City with council's approval. Franklin County commissioners reviewed and approved the proposed annexation Sept. 25, 2018. The zoning legislation would zone the land as PUD-R (planned unit development) upon annexation.
Council's meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Council Chambers, City Hall, 4035 Broadway. The caucus starts at 6:30 p.m.
