Warehouse/office plan moves ahead

By Katelyn Sattler

Staff Writer

The Obetz Planning & Zoning

Commission approved the rezoning and

preliminary development plan for the

14.6 acre Vargas property on Williams

Road, located east of Tata Excavation

and west of Schneider Trucking.

Rebecca Mott, attorney with Plank

Law Firm, LPA, and Derik Leary, P.E.,

Civil Engineer with Kimley-Horn, represented

the applicant, Stonemont

Financial Group, at the commission’s

May 11 meeting.

The application is for two warehouse

office flex buildings, which would include

some storage of light industrial such as

packaging, processing, loading, unloading,

and transportation. The rezoning

would be as a planned industrial district.

Obetz Community Services Director

Stacey Boumis said she didn’t think permitted

use manufacturing was appropriate.

Some manufacturing might be

acceptable with a conditional use permit,

but not things that would emit odor,

dust, fumes, or smoke. Mayor Angela

Kirk requested no paper products be produced

there.

Boumis wants to be sure nothing is

going to be put on the property that

would interrupt the Fortress operation

nearby.

The maximum height of the warehouses

allowed is 42 feet. Parking in the

northwest corner has been eliminated.

Landscaping has been added to the

Buckstone progressing

Obetz City Council approved more legislation regarding the

Buckstone development at its May 23 meeting.

The Buckstone development is on the former Younkin farm,

located near the intersection of Lockbourne and Rathmell roads.

It is a proposed upscale development of about 250 single family

houses with 14 to 15 acres of open space, and a playground. The

proposed development will have walkable paths, a swim club that

will be available for all Obetz residents to use, and a park.

Obetz City Administrator Rod Davisson described these two

pieces of legislation that were passed by council. The first involves

the tax increment finance (TIF) with the PILOT (payments in lieu

of taxes) payments. The PILOT payments are where the people

have to make payments that are equivalent to the taxes they

would have otherwise paid and then get distributed.

Recently the Franklin County Commissioners opposed instituting

the TIF because they felt it would reduce revenue for county

social services agencies.

“This is what normally happens,” said Obetz Mayor Angela

Kirk. “We have to go back and sit down with them and come to an

agreement. It doesn’t delay what we’re doing with Buckstone.”

The second ordinance concerns a 15-year Community

Reinvestment Area which abates the property taxes and that is

immediately replaced with a New Community Authority charge,

which is the equivalent of the tax money that was abated.

“That means if the house had taxes of $5,000, we wipe out those

taxes of $5,000 and then immediately institute a charge of

$5,000,” said Davisson. “And what that does is allow a city to redirect

the tax money that would have gone to other political subdivisions,

like the schools, the township, and the county, and then

the city is able to use that money to build that infrastructure that

gets the development going.”

That is for years 1 to 15.

“But at years 16 to 30, it’s done through tax increment financing,”

said Davisson. “And so what you get is for 30 years, people

who buy houses there don’t have to pay property taxes, but they

immediately have to pay an amount equal to the property taxes

plus another 5 mills. Again, if your property tax was going to be

$5,000, you don’t have to pay that tax of $5,000, but you have to

pay $5,000 plus another 5 mills. That’s another $1,000 and you

have to pay that for the entire 30 years. And then we collect that

CONCEALING UNSIGHTLY TEETH

If your front teeth are so unattractive

that you try to hide

them with a closed-lip smile or

with your hand covering your

mouth, you may be interested in

one of the new advances in

esthetic dentistry: laminate

veneers.

Veneers are customized, laboratory-produced

coverings that

fit over the front and sides of the

tooth. They can be used to correct

a variety of smile-spoiling

imperfections, including stains,

cracks, or chips. With veneers,

your teeth can be made longer

or wider, and many spacing

problems can be corrected. By

concealing unsightly teeth,

these natural-looking veneers

mean that you need not cover

up your smile ever again.

Veneers offer certain advantages

over other, more involved

or time consuming cosmetic

treatments. Veneering is a relatively

conservative approach,

requiring just a slight reduction

in the tooth’s surface.

Prepared as a public service to

promote better dental health.

couple trucks should be able to stay on the property

and obtain the repair on it, not have to be moved away

to some other location to be repaired.”

Officials said the farm operation to the east is staying

and the zoning of this plan isn’t applicable to that

area.

“I’m not the one to disrupt any of these operations,”

said Boumis.

Screening and landscaping is necessary to ensure

that whatever is happening on this site doesn’t impact

the farming operation.

“The bottom part of this project was proposed years

ago to be an expansion of Schneider Trucking, but they

never pulled the trigger, so those site plans have

expired,” said Boumis. “At that time, we made them do

fencing and screen along that entire length, so I would

expect that to occur here, too.”

A possible wetland was flagged. If it is a wetland, a

mitigation plan is needed.

money and then we’re able to distribute pieces of it to

the school district as they need it, to the township, to

the JVS, and some to the county. All those are made

through contracts that we make with those political

subdivisions.”

He said, under Ohio law, currently that is the only

way that new residential housing can be responsibly

built.

“The law isn’t really set up for cities to build residential

housing, because cities don’t make much

money on houses,” said Davisson. “They make very little

off of property taxes. Last year, our property tax

collection for the entire city was about $250,000. Our

income tax collection last year was $15 million. It’s a

huge difference. The only way you can do that is if you

build them and you take everybody's tax money, meaning

the school, the county, the township. The law

allows you to do this. You redirect that money to the

city, you use that money to build the roads, the water

lines, the parks, all the stuff that you need there, but

you only get 30 years to do it. Then at the end of 30

years, all of those people listed, the schools, the township.

They get all the tax money back.”

Davisson said officials estimate that the school district

in year 31 would be making about $10 million a

year from this project. He said right now the school district

is getting about $10,000 a year from the project.

“So that same land, 30 years from now, will generate

$10 million a year for the school district,” said

Davisson. “And then that money lasts forever, right?

As long as those buildings are there, they keep collecting

that money. There are plenty of cities out there

that aren’t doing it that way. And I think they’re going

to regret that, only because they’re going to find out

that houses don’t generate enough tax money to take

care of the roads, the sidewalks and all those kinds of

things. Our setup is different.”

He said, in 50 years, based on conservative estimates,

the school district will make more than $1 billion

on the taxes that arise.

“The township will make hundreds of millions of

dollars,” said Davisson. “Compared to the $40,000 a

year they make now on that farm land, it is a huge difference.”

the warehouse. He doesn’t want a trucking company

coming in.

Boumis said, “The land where Schneider trucking is

located, which is immediately to the east, is owned by

Stonemont Financial Group, which is also the applicant

for this rezoning. So I think that that’s part of the

concern. Will Schneider Trucking, because it’s connected,

start to expand over? That cannot happen.”

Mott was unaware that SFG also owned the nearby

Schneider Trucking. She asked Boumis to provide language

for the development text to avoid that type of

use.

There is a need for a development agreement on the

woods to the south of the railroad track, which will be

discussed at Obetz City Council.

There were also some previous conversations with

administration on additional open space and trees by

the ponds.

The rezoning and preliminary development agreement

will now go to council.

The generosity of members of the Hamilton Township High School Alumni Association

is enabling the high school’s media center to fill its shelves with reference and reading

materials for students. Association Treasurer Karen Cook, left, presents an $800 check

from donations to the organization’s George Cole Memorial Library Fund to media center

specialist Nicky Harter, right, on May 19.

Alumni support library

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Born out of an effort over a decade ago

to help compensate for dwindling library

funding, members of Hamilton Township

High School’s Alumni Association continue

to annually support the high school media

center.

The Cole Memorial Library Fund was

created to buy books and resources the

media center would not otherwise be able

to procure. It is a way to honor long-time

history instructor George Cole, who spent

his career as a teacher in the Hamilton district

starting in the 1930s.

On May 19, Hamilton Township High

School Alumni Association Treasurer

Karen Hunter Cook presented an $800

check to media center specialist Nicky

Harter on behalf of the alumni organization

to purchase supplies for the upcoming

school year.

Over the last five years, the alumni

association has donated more than $5,700

to the Hamilton High School Media

Center.

“As a group of graduates and now professionals

both working and retired, we

know the importance of the media center,”

said Cook. “Students need this area of the

school to learn how to access information

in libraries at a college or trade school they

attend after graduating from HTHS.

Libraries are the backbone of their studies

now and in the future and we want this

tool to be at their ready. Learning how to

use library resources is as important as the

information it offers them and through the

generosity of our members, we are able to

help keep those resources current.”

Cook said libraries typically are not

heavily subsidized by school districts and

often feel the pain when belt tightening

takes place.

“The funds they do get are never

enough,” said Cook. “Today, a library does

much more than just loan books. It serves

as a media center and houses much more

than books filed by the Dewey Decimal

System and index cards that tell you

where a book is located. There are now

areas for computers, copiers and in some

cases supplies, unlike decades ago. We

support our media center to help them get

some of the supplies–be it books or equipment–that

they might not otherwise be

able to buy.”

Harter is already using the donation to

purchase books including “The 7 Habits of

Highly Effective People,” by Stephen R

Covey, which students use in their advisory

classes over the course of the school

year.

“I wanted to include a copy in our collection,”

said Harter.

Also on the list is “The 1619 Project,” by

Nikole Hannah-Jones, a popular awardwinning

book about the history of slavery

in the United States; a copy of “The

Handmaid's Tale,” by Margaret Atwood to

replace a well-worn edition of the timeless

classic; “The 57 Bus,” by Dashka Slate; and

“Exit, pursued by a bear,” by E.K.

Johnston; and “Firekeeper's Daughter,” by

Angeline Boulley.

“This (“Firekeeper’s Daughter”) is one of

the most awarded and highly acclaimed

young adult novels of 2021,” said Harter. “I

am excited to add it to our collection.”

From humble beginnings great things

take place.

In the village of Lockbourne, one such

beginning was the creation of the

Lockbourne Heritage Society in 1992, an

organization dedicated to preserving and

promoting the history of Lockbourne.

The Lockbourne Heritage Society was

begun by five individuals.

Their goal was simple–bring attention

to the history of the village and recognize

notable events in establishing plans for the

continuing evolution of the community.

“Along with those goals was the desire

to have the village’s remaining six canal

locks and several buildings included on the

National register of Historic Places,” said

Society President Jane McJunkin. “The

locks, part of a series of eight in the village,

were integral in the Ohio & Erie Canal system.”

Community identity

With its close proximity to Columbus,

Lockbourne served as a junction point

between the Columbus Feeder and the

Ohio & Erie Canal, which brought goods

and services to the interior of Ohio and

allowed farmers and residents to fully

engage in regional and national trade.

“That helped America and our nation

grow,” said McJunkin. “The Lockbourne

Heritage Society membership eventually

grew to 47 members, but has dwindled to

around 13 due to older members passing

away and the younger generation not having

the time or, in some cases, the interest.

It is important for every community to

have its own identity, something that local

residents can point to as their own unique

contribution to their area. Lockbourne is

rich in history in Hamilton Township, as

well as the Hamilton Local School District.

The heritage society is dedicated to helping

preserve the past for future generations.”

Projects

The society raises fund for projects

through their semi-annual fish frys–one

during Lent and another close to Flag Day.

The next one takes place on June 2 and

3 in the town’s Historical Hall.

Fundraisers also include the sale of t-

shirts, Veteran’s Memorial bricks, pottery,

afghans and decorative lighted wine bottles.

At one time, the land around the Ohio &

Erie locks and canals in Lockbourne was

nothing but weeds.

The society assumed responsibility for

mowing, weeding and cleaning the area.

Over the last three decades, the organization

also donated thousands of dollars

benefiting the village, including building

the former Veteran’s Memorial Park and

buying new flags and flowers each year.

The society also provided concrete for

the shelter house in Locke Meadow Park,

sponsors the village’s Easter Egg Hunt,

donates to the annual Christmas Party

and purchases Ohio Historical Markers.

Members provided food and household

goods for a family displaced by fire, made

monetary donations to five local churches

and supported the Lockbourne Food

Pantry.

McJunkin said the society purchased

flower barrels and flowers for Commerce

Street, bought a sign and materials for a

marker depicting Lockbourne’s plat stone,

bought paint for several houses and is in

the process of getting a historical doctor’s

office moved to a new location.

The long-term project includes restoring

the interior of the Blake office, which is

currently located at the entrance to Locke

Meadow Park.

The society also hopes to have a museum

one day where they can house and

share numerous Lockbourne artifacts.

“For our current projects, we are

researching a new lightweight lectern that

can be used at the gazebo and downstairs

at the hall, and we are pursuing a new

wireless sound system that also can be

used at the Veteran’s Park and hall for

meetings,” said McJunkin. “The founding

five would be very pleased to know that

their dream actually became a reality as

our Ohio & Erie locks and canals have been

added to the National Register of Historic

Places thanks to our members and volunteers

who work tirelessly to reach our

goals–it really does take a village.”

A new Ohio law, that goes into effect

July 1, allows individuals to possess consumer

grade fireworks in Ohio, eliminating

a requirement that purchasers transport

consumer grade fireworks out of the state

within 48 hours of purchase.

It also allows any person authorized to

possess consumer grade fireworks to discharge

them on their own property or on

another person’s property with permission

on the following days: New Year’s Day;

Chinese New Year; Cinco de Mayo;

Memorial Day weekend; Juneteenth; July

3, 4, and 5 and the Fridays, Saturdays, and

Sundays preceding and following; Labor

Day weekend; Diwali; and New Year’s Eve.

According to a statement from Governor

Mike DeWine, “The bill I signed limits the

discharge of fireworks to the more traditional

holidays that Ohioans celebrate,

while recognizing our numerous culturally

diverse holidays.”

The law permits local governments to

restrict the dates and times when individuals

may discharge consumer grade fireworks

or to impose a complete ban on the

use of consumer grade fireworks.

The law also:

•requires licensed retailers, manufacturers,

and wholesalers selling consumer

grade fireworks to offer safety glasses for

free or for a nominal fee and to provide purchasers

with a safety pamphlet;

•prohibits discharging fireworks while

in possession of or under the influence of

Metro Parks wildlife advice

Spring is here and its the season for calls

about orphaned and abandoned animals.

Metro Parks is unable to rehabilitate wildlife,

but there are some steps you can take.

According to Metro Parks officials, if you

find an animal in a park that is orphaned,

abandoned, or injured, leave it alone and call

the ranger cell number, posted on bulletin

boards and around the park. Sometimes,

babies are left alone while mom is looking

for food, and will return to the nest, other

times they will require care or monitoring.

Do not take them out of the park.

If you find an animal in your yard, leave

it be. Call the Ohio Wildlife Center 614-

Groveport celebrates 175th

Groveport will celebrate the 175th

anniversary of its founding with special

events on June 11 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

“There will be a self-guided tour starting

at 10 a.m. featuring six different stops,”

said Groveport Community Affairs

Director Jessica Wyke. “At each stop participants

will collect a postcard with historical

information about that tour site.

Collect all six postcards and get a free

175th anniversary t-shirt.”

The self-guided tour sites are: Ohio and

Erie Canal Lock 22, located in Groveport

Park 7370 Groveport Road; Historic School

complex, located at 715 and 751 Main

Street; the Log House, located in Heritage

Park, 551 Wirt Road; Groveport Cemetery,

located along Wirt Road by Heritage Park;

Sharp’s Landing, located across from the

Groveport Cemetery at 536 Wirt Road; and

Groveport Town Hall, 648 Main St.

Visitors can begin the self-guided tour at

any of these sites.

Wyke said two of the stops will have a

special treat.

“The Groveport Police Department will

be grilling hotdogs at the Log House and

Groveport Town Hall will be having an ice

cream social,” said Wyke. “This is a completely

free event, including the hotdogs

and the ice cream social.”

Groveport Town Hall will also host a

reception starting at 1 p.m. in the second

floor ballroom where Mayor Lance

Westcamp will recognize past and present

city administrators and city council members.

“Members of the Groveport Madison

Area Community Choir will kick off the

reception with a skit highlighting the early

history of Groveport,” said Wyke.

Wyke said recognizing Groveport’s

175th anniversary is important because it

is an opportunity for the community to

learn more about “Groveport’s rich history

and proud heritage.”

It’s a chance to celebrate our city, where

we’ve been, where we are now, and where

we’re heading,” said Wyke.

pets of the week

Horus, 1, can usually

be found hiding behind

something. However, if

you seek him out and

give him a little encouragement,

he comes out

for the love. He loves

attention too much to

hide away forever. His

markings are so unusual,

you can’t mistake

sweet Horus. If you are

interested in adopting

Horus, contact Colony

Cats and Dogs.

FYI: colonycats.org

Chickadee is a sweet

girl who likes treats and

toys. This 2-year-old is

a little selective when it

comes to other felines

so she may do best as

the only cat. She is

spayed and vaccinated.

Chickadee is available

for adoption

through Colony Cats

and Dogs.

FYI: colonycats.org

Scamp is the pup that never stops smiling.

He loves the great outdoors and is ready to

love you too. At just 1-year-old, he is the life of

the party, loves to play and is always down for

a round of fetch. Scamp

has done well with other

dogs and is a huge fan

of splashing through

puddles. He would

make for a great hiking

partner and adventure

buddy. Adopt him at the

Franklin County Dog

Shelter.

FYI: franklincountydogs.com

Sassy is sweet and

sassy. She knows the

sit, down, stay, and

shake commands. She

rides great in the car,

making her the perfect

co-pilot for long road

trips, and is quite the

determined diva. Sassy

is more of a people

pleaser and will need to be the only dog in the

home. If you like to get out and explore the

world, and never say no to an adventure,

Sassy is your girl.

FYI: franklincountydogs.com

These furry friends are

available for adoption

at local rescues and

shelters.
