Multi-family residential development proposed along Groveport Road

A developer has proposed the construction of a multi-family unit residential complex on west Groveport Road.

The site is 8.3 acres and is bounded by the Groveport Church of Christ on the west, storage units across the road to the south, and a single family lot to the north and east.

Metro Development, Inc., has applied to the city of Groveport to rezone the property from rural to planned high density residential.

According to paperwork included with the proposed rezoning legislation, the company proposes to build five multi-family buildings totaling 144 units with detached garages, clubhouse, and a pool. The units are a mix of one, two, and three bedroom options.

The plan also calls for 255 outdoor parking spots and 36 garage parking slots. The rezoning application notes that 7 to 14 school age children could be expected in the project and that “traffic counts for mult-family are considerably less than other forms of housing due to the reduced children and trips needed.”

When asked how this proposed project fits in with the city of Groveport’s Groveport Road Gateway Corridor Plan, Groveport Development Director Jeff Green said, “The Gateway Corridor Plan envisions more commercial/retail development to complement and buffer the existing industrial development. It will be up the Planning and Zoning Commission and Groveport City Council to decide if this development fits.”

The Groveport Planning and Zoning Commission will review the rezoning request at its Nov. 2 meeting at 6 p.m. in the Groveport Municipal Building, 655 Blacklick St.

Green said city officials expressed the need to allow concerned residents the opportunity to participate in the discussions about the project via Zoom or some other means.

“I’m looking into broadcasting the meeting through Zoom streamed through Facebook Live,” said Green. “Those interested in speaking will need to appear in person at the meeting.”
