Development to bring

236 homes to London

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Pulte Group, the third largest home

builder in the United States, plans to build

a 236-home residential development in London

on 73 acres located between Lafayette

Street and East High Street.

The company plans to offer at least five

models of ranch-style and two-story homes,

all single-family, ranging in size from 1,600

square feet to 3,000 square feet. The average

price point will be $350,000.

To accommodate their preferred design

for the development, Pulte Group has requested

a zoning change from R-3 (residential)

to PUD (planned unit development).

City council will hold a public hearing on

the zoning change request at its July 21

meeting set for 6:30 p.m. at city hall, 20 S.

Walnut St. Following the hearing, council

will hold a third reading on the zoning legislation

and could put the measure to a vote

at that time.

“Council is not deciding ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to

allow the development. The current zoning

of R-3 already allows for the development.

The vote is whether to grant the PUD,”

Mayor Patrick Closser said.

Pulte Group plans to dedicate 14.6 acres

(20 percent of the overall acreage) to open

space for pocket parks, playgrounds, and a

multi-purpose path. Additionally, their design

calls for 28-foot wide streets with onstreet

parking on one side only. The PUD

designation would allow for such design elements.

Jim Hilz, director of land planning and

entitlement, said the company is excited

about the London project and property.

“This site is amazing. Very rarely do we

get a site like this,” he said.

Typically, Pulte Group builds further out

from town centers. The London property already

has access to water and sewer services,

and restaurants and groceries are

within walking or biking distance—a feature

popular with homeowners, Hilz said.

As designed, the development would

have three access points, the primary one

being located off of East High Street. The

secondary access would be from Cambridge

Taking the lead

A 236-home residential development is planned for London on

acreage located between Lafayette Street and East High Street.

Houses will range in size from 1,600 to 3,000 square feet. The developer,

New levy proposed for fire, EMS and police

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

London city council is considering a new levy request

to be placed on the Nov. 8 general election ballot.

The request calls for a 0.4 percent income tax increase

for a continuing period of time with collection

starting Jan. 1, 2023. Of that amount, 0.25 percent

would go toward additional funding for the city’s fire

and EMS department. The other 0.15 percent would

go toward the construction of a new police station.

If passed, the increase would bring the city’s income

tax to 1.9 percent.

On July 7, council held a first reading on the leg-

Drive off of Lafayette, with the third located

at Chaning Drive and Bristol Avenue.

In the narrow portion of the property,

where the east side meets the west side, the

company plans to install a traffic calming

circle to lower traffic speed and reduce cutthrough

traffic.

The eastern side of the development

would feature a 1.7-acre park, playgrounds,

shelters, community mailbox facilities, and

open play areas. The western side of the development

would feature a 1-acre park, a

shelter, and mailbox facilities. Sidewalks

are planned for both sides of the streets

throughout the development. Where possible,

stormwater ponds will be presented as

amenities.

Pulte Group plans to offer 171 lots measuring

52 feet wide by 125 feet deep and 65

lots measuring 62 feet wide by 125 feet deep.

The design calls for placing open spaces,

larger lots and larger setbacks where the development

sits adjacent to existing homes.

Landscape buffering and drainage improvements

also are part of the project.

“When we designed this site, we really

looked at how it would impact existing property

owners,” Hilz said. “We really want to

be good neighbors.”

Pulte Group hopes to start construction

of the entire project over the course of the

next eight years. When completely built out,

the development will represent an investment

of $82 million in total real estate

value, Hilz said.

Mayor Patrick Closser welcomes the

prospect of more housing in London.

“We need to embrace that growth, because

if you are not growing, you are dying,”

he said at a recent council meeting.

Closser said housing brings many positives

to a community: people to fill jobs, increased

home values, new businesses to

serve the increased population, and tax revenue.

“If you see construction in your neighborhood,

remember, a lot of thought, planning

and money went into that because a developer

sees an area with high potential,” he

said.

Realtors donate clothing and shoes

On June 8, the Madison County Area Realty

Association (MCARA) held a Realtor

Care Day in Madison County. The association

donated $1,500 worth of new clothing

WJ Schools names Roberts to vacant board seat

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

A vacant seat on the Jefferson Local school board did not stay

empty for long with the appointment of Galloway resident Loriena

Roberts a month after David Harper stepped down after 23 years

of service.

In her June 3 application letter to Superintendent William Mullett,

Roberts said she has been involved in education in a variety of

facets for 24 years and moved into the school district 15 years ago.

From 1998 through 2009, she worked for Hamilton Local Schools

as a softball coach, science/language arts teacher, literacy coach and

in elementary instructional support. From 2019 to the present, she

served as a substitute teacher at Norwood Elementary.

Roberts was a classroom volunteer at Norwood from 2011 to

2019, served as a Big Brothers/Big Sisters mentor program volunteer

from 2018 to 2020, and volunteered as a West Jefferson Youth

(WJY) assistant softball coach from 2013 to 2014, along with serving

as a WJY assistant volleyball coach/head coach from 2014 to

2017.

“My understanding of school district rules and regulations, along

with my love for engaging students, parents and community fit well

into the role of a school board member,” Roberts wrote. “I believe

my experience brings valuable insight and prospective to help guide

our district into the future.”

Roberts graduated from Elgin High School in 1994, earned a

bachelor’s degree in education from Ohio University in 1998 and a

master’s degree in education and allied professions from the University

of Dayton in 2002.

She is a Girl Scout troop leader, a parent volunteer with Jefferson

Local musicals and the West Jefferson Music Boosters, and

serves as the booster group’s secretary.

“In the 15 years my family has lived in the district, I have always

strived to be an active participant in the community and our school

district,” Roberts said. “I have had the benefit of watching our two

children thrive in their educational experience at Jefferson Local

Schools.

“I see this next step as an opportunity to continue the engagement

I have tried to achieve during my time in this community. I

have enjoyed working side-by-side with teachers, other community

members and administrators during my time volunteering over the

years.”

Roberts hopes her experiences in the field of education and volunteerism

within the community are assets in working with current

board members to guide the district into a successful future.

Four candidates submitted applications for the open board seat.

The board interviewed all four on June 27. Treasurer Mark Ingles

administered the oath of office to Roberts on July 11.

Combining more than two decades with Jefferson Local and

time spent in Hilliard on the city council, staff and committees,

Harper served the public for 52 years. Before he moved to Madison

County, he worked for a banking institution and as a volunteer on

committees under the mayor and with Hilliard children.

Harper officially stepped down on June 13 as a school board

member, but said he will continue to serve as the district’s representative

on the Tolles Career and Technical Center board until the

end of his term at the end of the year.

“And I’m not resigning. This is more of a retirement, and I’m still

going to be involved with the athletic boosters,” Harper stated previously.

“I’m just stepping down to be more involved with my family

and grandchildren.”

In other action, the board completed the second half of a two-step

process to place a substitute levy on the Nov. 8 ballot. The action

also gives a citizen-led committee the go-ahead to start the campaign

process which is privately funded and does not involve school

financial resources.

The emergency levy was first passed

nearly 40 years and runs for a seven-year

term. Mullett previously reported the levy

does not ask for any new taxes but does

allow the district to collect taxes on new

growth.

Mullett also pointed out that if the levy

is approved, taxpayers will continue to reap

the benefit of a 12.5 percent exemption on

their home.

‘Mamma Mia!’ cast packs talent and experience

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The music of ABBA will come to life in

the Joyce Hildebrand Auditorium at London

High School as the Madison County Arts

Council presents the musical, “Mamma

Mia!”, July 21-23.

Songs from the Swedish pop group, popular

in the 1970s and ‘80s, provide the

framework for a mother-daughter story that

takes place on a fictional Greek island. The

daughter, Sophie (played by Ruth Peart), is

preparing to marry Sky (Aaron Gates). She

wants her father to walk her down the aisle,

but she doesn’t know who her father is.

After reading her mother’s diary, Sophie

narrows the possibilities to three: Sam

(Nathan Haley), Harry (Cory Mitchell), and

Bill (Paul Oswalt). She invites all three to

the wedding.

As events unfold, the audience gets to

know Sophie’s mother, Donna (Denise

Bloomfield), and her mother’s friends,

Tanya (Ciera Bierbaugh) and Rosie (Sherry

Holland). In the end, mother and daughter

make peace with each other and themselves.

Danielle Fredette, who is directing the

show with Kevin Lohr, said she is very

pleased with lead actors’ performances,

adding that they bring a lot of experience to

the production.

“We’re happy we had the option to cast

these people and that they were willing to

come and do this community show,” Fredette

said, noting that the most of the 30-

member cast hails from the Madison

County area. “More than one of them has a

music degree, one has an acting degree, and

all of them have been in lots of shows before.”

She praised the talent of the actors who

make up the chorus, too, and is excited to

showcase their talents in ways that differ

from the original production of “Mamma

Mia!”

“In the original, they used a pit chorus.

They weren’t on stage at all; they were in

the orchestra pit,” Fredette explained.

“We’re using the ensemble a little differently.

We’re going for a ‘70s Greek/dream

chorus kind of look, where those actors will

be on stage for some songs in hopefully creative

and fun ways.”

Among the well-known tunes incorporated

into the show are the title track,

“Mamma Mia!,” “Money, Money, Money,”

“Knowing Me, Knowing You” and “Voulez-

Vous.” Great dance numbers accompany the

likes of “Dancing Queen,” “Does Your

Mother Know?” and “Under Attack.”

Joining Fredette and Lohr in putting on

the show are Scott Blanton on set design

and construction, Billy Ruhlen on lights and

Flood relief for neighborhood

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Relief from flooding could be

on its way to the Graceland Avenue

and Marimont Road

neighborhood in London.

London city council is considering

legislation that would

allow for installation of storm

sewer tiles and drainage behind

the houses on Graceland Avenue.

The work would help to

catch some of the water that

runs off the adjacent field, diverting

it away from the neighborhood’s

streets, yards, and

homes and into the storm sewer

system.

The estimated cost of the

project is $177,000. Council is

considering a resolution that

would allow the city to assess

each of the 21 property owners

in the neighborhood $6,250

each for a total of $131,250 toward

the cost of the project. The

city would pay the difference.

Property owners would have

the choice to pay the $6,250 up

front or over the course of 15

years as an assessment on their

taxes through the county auditor’s

office.

Resident Elizabeth Branson is in favor of

the project and fine with the assessment.

“I trust the project will solve a lot of the

problems,” she said at a recent council meeting.

“This beautiful neighborhood deserves

to live without the fear of heavy rains causing

stress and sleepless nights.”

Stan Kavy, who has lived on Graceland

Avenue for more than 30 years, thanked

council members and Rex Castle, the city’s

safety-service director, for bringing the project

up for consideration.

Kavy is a commercial property appraiser.

His wife, Diana, has worked as a residential

realtor for more than 25 years. Kavy said

the drainage project would help the neighborhood’s

property values.

islation required to place the levy on the

ballot. Three readings are required before a

vote is taken. The deadline to file issues

with the Board of Elections for the Nov. 8

ballot is Aug. 10.

The city’s previous levy request, which

appeared on the May 3 primary ballot,

called for a 0.5 percent income tax increase

for additional fire/EMS funding, construction

of a police station, and construction of a

community center. The request failed 506-

1,054.

The community center is not included in

Messenger photo by Kristy Zurbrick

Residents of the Graceland Avenue/Marimont Road neighborhood in London

hope London city council passes legislation to install storm sewer tiles and

drainage to provide the area with relief from flooding. This sign currently

stands at the entrance to the neighborhood.

“I’m more than willing to pay our share

for the 15 years... No problem. I think it’s

such a good investment for all of us,” Kavy

said, adding that he appreciates that the

city plans to carry some of the cost burden

if the project moves forward.

Council will hold a public hearing on the

assessment resolution at their July 21 meeting.

The resolution will be up for a third

reading at that time and, therefore, eligible

for a vote. Related legislation, including a

resolution to put the project out to bid and

a resolution to appropriate improvement

funds for the project, also will be up for a

third reading and possible vote. The meeting

Mayor Patrick Closser.

Henry Comer, council president, said the

new proposal “makes more sense” than the

one that appeared on the May ballot.

Regarding the need for a new police station,

he commented, “I don’t think that it

can be neglected any longer.”

Council members Greg Eades and Rich

Hays also voiced support for the new levy

proposal. Council member Anthony Smith

said support for the city’s fire/EMS and police

services is important as the city grows.

“It’s great that London’s continuing to

grow. Those are definitely the services that

I want to make sure are done right,” he

said.

The levy legislation will be up for a second

It is with great sadness that the family announces the

death of Shirley (Ritter) Buehl. She passed

away peacefully at the age of 81 (or, 49-and-foreverholding)

in Houston, Texas on July 2, 2022 surrounded

by family after a month-long hospitalization for heart

and lung disease.

Shirley was born July 22, 1940 in Columbus, Ohio to

Dorothy (Martin) and Walter Ritter. She walked across

the state line to Richmond, Indiana in order to marry

her lifelong partner Ben Buehl at the tender age of 16. Shirley drove a school

bus for many years before relocating with her family from Madison County,

Ohio to northeast Houston, Texas. After obtaining her GED, Shirley worked at

her local Walmart in various roles for 27 years before her retirement.

She loved knitting, crocheting, baking and growing things. There probably

isn’t a person who knew Shirley who hasn’t received some sample of her skills.

She also enjoyed traveling, spending time with friends in the Red Hat group,

visiting the West Jeff Ox Roast, and being on the naughty list. She cared for

every stray she ever met, 2-legged or 4-legged, and was loved in return by

nearly everyone who ever knew her for her humor and generous spirit. Most

of all, Shirley cherished her family. Her greatest joy in life was being a grandmother

and a great-grandmother.

Shirley is survived by her husband Ben Buehl and their two children Mark

(Robin) Buehl and Meloney (Adam Clark) Buehl; grandchildren Chris (Tamara)

Buehl, Kat (Matt) Mayton, Kim (John) Lee, Alivia Clark, Noah Clark, and Kairat

Berdishaliev; nine beloved great-grandchildren; brothers Walter "Pete" Ritter

and Michael (Kathy) Ritter; as well as countless extended family and friends

across the country who loved her dearly.

A celebration of Shirley’s life was held Thursday, July 7th in Porter, Texas at

Rosewood Funeral Home.

A short graveside ceremony will be held at the Alton Cemetery in Galloway,

Ohio on Wednesday, July 20th at 11:30am, Pastor Matthew Cox presiding. All

who wish to attend are welcome.

Joyce Ann (Kitchen) Ruff, 73, raised in Lilly Chapel, Ohio, and

later resided in Columbus, Ohio, passed away on Thursday, June 30, 2022, at

Mt. Carmel Hospital in Grove City, Ohio, with her daughter by her side. Joyce

was born in the former Mt. Carmel Hospital on the west side of Columbus on

June 17, 1949, to her late father, Jeff Kitchen, and her surviving mother,

Virginia “Ginnie” (Gillette) Kitchen. She was the youngest of their three

children. Joyce was preceded in death by her father, Jeff Kitchen, and her

older, firstborn sister, Judy (Kitchen)Tapp. Joyce is survived by her daughter,

Babette “Babs” Renee (Ruff) Hall, mother, Ginnie Kitchen, brother Jerry

(Debbie) Kitchen, many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Joyce wanted

to express her deep love and appreciation for her friendships with Brenda

Miller-Black and Debby Tindle. While growing up, Joyce attended Lilly Chapel

United Methodist Church and participated in many youth activities. In school,

she was in theater, basketball, Honor Society, and more. Joyce graduated from

Plains High School in Mt. Sterling, Ohio, on June 1, 1967. After graduating,

she worked at the State of Ohio Parole Board, an insurance company with her

friend Debby and a few other positions prior to being hired at a national

printing company, Treasure Chest Advertising, where she remained for a few

decades until she retired as a paper control manager.

Joyce married Charlie Theodore Ruff on March 15, 1968. Together they

conceived a daughter, Babette, born on October 2, 1975. Although divorced

in July of 1977, Joyce's endless love provided guidance, communication, and

support for her daughter.

Joyce enjoyed bicycling, basketball, badminton, tennis, roller and ice skating,

hiking, walking in the woods, swimming, reading, knitting, learning, history,

children, animals, babies, long intimate intellectual chats with those she

loved, and her solitary peaceful times alone. Joyce was an active, determined,

committed advocate, and companion always staying true to herself, her

beliefs and values while trying to do what was best for those she loved. It was

a true blessing to have known her. When you think of Joyce, know she is at

peace with her fathers, celebrate the good memories you have of her, and

know she is still walking within you.

There will be a service for Joyce at 10:30 am on Friday, July 8, 2022, at

Rader-McDonald-Tidd Funeral Home located at 1355 West Main Street,

West Jefferson, Ohio 43162. The service will be followed by a graveside service

located in the Prairie Township Cemetery in Galloway, Ohio. Pastor Tim

Rash, Jr. will be officiating the services. Fellowship and lunch will follow at

Trinity United Methodist Church in Lilly Chapel, Ohio. All are welcome and

encouraged to attend.

Joyce wanted to express her deep love and appreciation

for her friendships with Brenda Miller-Black and

Debby Tindle.

While growing up, Joyce attended Lilly Chapel

United Methodist Church and participated in many

youth activities. In school, she was in theater, basketball,

Honor Society, and more. Joyce graduated from

Plains High School in Mount Sterling, Ohio, on June 1,

1967. After graduating, she worked at the State of Ohio

Parole Board, an insurance company with her friend,

Debby, and a few other positions prior to being hired at

a national printing company, Treasure Chest Advertising,

where she remained for a few decades until she retired

as a paper control manager.

Joyce married Charlie Theodore Ruff on March 15,

1968. Together, they conceived a daughter, Babette,

born on Oct. 2, 1975. Although divorced in July of 1977,

Joyce’s endless love provided guidance, communication,

and support for her daughter.

Joyce enjoyed bicycling, basketball, badminton, tennis,

roller and ice skating, hiking, walking in the woods,

swimming, reading, knitting, learning, history, children,

animals, babies, long intimate intellectual chats

with those she loved, and her solitary peaceful times

alone. Joyce was an active, determined, committed advocate

and companion, always staying true to herself,

her beliefs and values while trying to do what was best

for those she loved. It was a true blessing to have known

her. When you think of Joyce, know she is at peace with

her fathers, celebrate the good memories you have of

her, and know she is still walking within you.

A service for Joyce was held on July 8 at Rader-Mc-

Donald-Tidd Funeral Home, West Jefferson. A graveside

service followed at Prairie Township Cemetery,

Galloway. Pastor Tim Rash Jr. officiated the services.

Fellowship and lunch followed at Trinity United

Methodist Church, Lilly Chapel.

Setting water use restrictions

July 17, 2022 - MADISON MESSENGER - Page 7

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

Changes could be coming to London’s rules when it

comes to water use during water shortages and emergencies.

On July 17, city council heard the first reading on a

proposal that would give the city’s safety service director

authority to limit water use when the water supply

or water pressure are insufficient or inadequate.

Examples of situations that would create such an

emergency include:

• a water main break;

• any physical or mechanical failure at the water

treatment plant;

• dry or drought conditions; or

• restriction of water supply by state or federal authorities.

During a water emergency, the safety service director

could restrict non-essential uses of water such as:

• watering lawns;

• commercial and residential use of water to wash

boats, cars, trucks and other vehicles;

• filling swimming pools;

• watering from hydrants;

• washing sidewalks, driveways, porches and building

exteriors;

• sterilization, blowoff and testing of water lines and

sewer mains; and

• burning of paper, trash, wood or other combustible

material.

The proposed legislation change calls for a fine of up

to $500 for anyone convicted of violating the ordinance.

“Basically, (the proposed legislation) is so we have

something in place if we do ever come to the point where

we need to limit water usage,” said council member

Bryan Robinson.

Council member Greg Eades commented, “I could see

the need to have this, regardless of whether we have

one working water plant or two, if we’re in drought conditions.

I can see the need for being able to say we need

to limit this somehow.”

Looking to get the changes on the books as soon as

possible, council member Rich Hays moved that council

suspend the three-reading rule for legislation and put

it to a vote that night. Council member John Stahl seconded

the motion. The vote for suspension was 5-1 with

Eades casting the “no” vote. Eades has previously stated

that he would rarely vote for suspending the rules. Six

votes are needed to allow suspension. Council member

Joshua Peters was absent from the meeting. As a result,

the measure stayed on first reading and will be up for a

second reading at council’s July 21 meeting.

Crosswalk signs

At a recent council meeting, resident Michael Norman

recommended the city look into installing signage

to increase safety for pedestrians at intersections

around town. Eades reported at the July 17 meeting

that the recommendation has since been discussed in

committee, and the street department has put together

a preliminary plan.

Bill Long, street superintendent, confirmed that his

department has identified 12 intersections where solarpowered

crosswalk signs could be installed:

• Elm Street and Park Avenue;

• Main Street and Park Avenue;

• Fifth and Main streets;

• Midway and High streets;

• Fourth and Main streets;

• Union and High streets;

• Second and Main streets;

• Westmoor Drive and High Street;

• Elm Street and New Hampshire Avenue;

• Elm Street at St. Patrick School;

• Elm Street at the London City Schools campus;

and

• Oak and High streets.

Four of the 12 locations are ones where traffic lights

were removed earlier this year.

The estimated cost of the signage is $184,000. That

does not include labor which could double the cost,

Robinson said.

Long added, “We’re going to get estimates on labor

and see where we end up.”

City council’s next regular meeting will take place at

6:30 p.m. at city hall, 20 S. Walnut St. For more information,

Marking parking

Clint Hayman, an employee of London’s street department,

paints a handicap parking space outside the State Theater. On

July 11, the street department started repainting parking spots

on Main Street between Center and High streets. The Ohio Department

of Transportation is in the midst of a paving project on

State Route 56 (Main Street). The city is responsible for striping

the parking spots as the paving is completed. The ODOT project

was halted during Madison County Fair week (July 9-16). Once

it resumes and is finished, the city will re-stripe parking spots

on Main Street north of High Street to Fourth Street.

New playground at Merri Mac nearly complete

By Kristy Zurbrick

Madison Editor

The newest feature at Merri Mac Park in London is just a couple

of parts away from completion.

In late June, a combination of volunteers and professionals installed

new playground equipment next to the shelter house. Features

include a zip line, four-seat seesaw, spin ride, basketball drop

shot, and a play tower with slides and climbing options. Also included

is a “triple ring-fling” on which children can swing through

a series of elevated, rotating wheels.

Children will have to wait to play on the equipment until the

manufacturer sends a missing part for the play tower and a replacement

part for another piece of the equipment. Until then, temporary

fencing surrounds the playground.

Amy Rees, administrative assistant for the city of London, said

the parts should be delivered and installed in time for a ribbon-cutting

in late August.

Merri Mac Park Miracle, a non-profit volunteer group, and the

city are working together to bring improvements to the park.

The Miracle group donated $15,000 to the city to help offset the

$95,000 cost of the playground equipment. The group also paid to

have the existing basketball court resealed and striped. Volunteers

painted the shelter house from top to bottom and sanded the floor,

painted the picnic tables, and refurbished the existing swing set.

City council member Bryan Robinson reported that security cameras

are being installed to provide surveillance of the roads running

in and out of the park, the playground, and the shelter house.

Merri Mac Park Miracle welcomes anyone who would like to lend

a hand in their ongoing efforts. The group typically meets monthly.

For more information, visit the group’s Facebook page, “Merri Mac

Park Miracle,” or send email to merrimacparkmiracle@yahoo.com.

Donations can be made out to “MFC/Merri Mac Park Miracle”

and mailed to P.O. Box 674, London, OH 43140.

of a couple of parts to complete the installation. Until then, the equipment is off limits.
