Work begins on OhioHealth's future $130M hospital

Thursday, July 21, 2005

By MICHAEL RACEY

Villager Staff Writer

 

OhioHealth was expected to break ground on its future hospital in Dublin this morning (July 21).  The hospital's name was to be announced during a ceremony at the site.  Site work for the future 300,000-square-foot complex north of U.S. 33 is under way. Cheryl Herbert, president of the future facility, was expected to announce the hospital's name from a list of six finalists.

 

Last month, the public and OhioHealth employees voted online for their favorite name from this list: Avery, Avery Methodist, Hopewell, Hopewell Methodist, Dublin or Dublin Methodist. OhioHealth is spending $130-million on its newest facility and expects it to be open by late fall 2007.

Hospital has a name: Dublin Methodist

OhioHealth facility is expected to open in late fall 2007

Thursday, July 28, 2005

By MICHAEL RACEY

Villager Staff Writer

 

In about three years, Dublin will have its own hospital, to be called Dublin Methodist Hospital.  Construction is under way on the OhioHealth facility, which is set to open in late fall of 2007 on 89 acres north of U.S. 33, behind the Avery Square Shopping Center.  The choice of the name was made from a list of six provided for online voting during the month of June and announced at a groundbreaking ceremony held late last week.

Dublin making Third Frontier link

 

With help from a $500,000 state capital grant, the city of Dublin will connect into the Third Frontier Network to form the system's first local research pipeline.  The Central Ohio Research Network will connect Dublin's government, schools and businesses to the 1,600-mile web of high-speed wiring that links Ohio colleges and universities, research labs and hospitals.

 

Some benefits to Dublin include a connection between Battelle Memorial Institute's Dublin facility and its King Avenue headquarters.  McDaniel said it will be an asset to the city's plans for the planned Central Ohio Innovation Center, a 1,500-acre city plan that includes a 200-acre technology park and an OhioHealth hospital.

OSU commits to anchor Dublin research park

Jeff Bell

Business First

 

A nonprofit corporation that supports Ohio State University Medical Center is closing in on a development deal to make heath care and biomedical research a cornerstone of Dublin's newly created research park.  Under a city proposal that would extend land and other improvements to the project, OSU would become the first anchor tenant for Dublin's Central Ohio Innovation Center off Route 33.

 

The development pact, which will be outlined for the public at a Sept. 19 City Council session, is expected to include the city donating 92 acres at the research park to UMC Partners, an independent commercial development arm of OSU Medical Center.  Dublin this year spent $7.2 million to acquire the land, the first part of what it hopes will develop into a 200-acre campus.

Memorial Hospital digs in for clash with Dublin rival

Jeff Bell, Business First

 

Memorial Hospital of Union County administrator Nancy Conklin knows exactly how long it takes to drive from Marysville to the OhioHealth hospital under construction in Dublin.  "Fourteen minutes," said Conklin, Memorial's vice president of marketing and development.  Such a concise clocking shows she and others at Marysville's 107-bed community hospital are already bracing for the arrival of OhioHealth's Dublin Methodist Hospital two years from now. They see it as a competitor for patients from the Marysville area, the heart of Memorial's service area.

Breakthrough cancer therapy part of OSU plan for Dublin park

Jeff Bell

Business First

 

A facility that would provide the next generation of cancer treatments would be one of the anchors of an Ohio State University Medical Center project at Dublin's new research park.  OSU would have the first site in North America to use a new particle therapy to treat cancer patients, university President Karen Holbrook said Thursday, when she outlined the project during her annual State of the University address at the Wexner Center.

 

The project, she said, will be a partnership between "private entities" and UMC Partners, the independent commercial development arm of OSU Medical Center.  Ohio State officials have declined to identify companies involved in the joint venture, saying public disclosure would jeopardize negotiations.  But Business First has learned the cost of the particle therapy equipment and facility could be more than $150 million.

Sneak peek

Mockups offer glimpse of hospital's rooms 

By LIN RICE

 

Employees of OhioHealth were given a chance to tour several mockups of patient rooms for Dublin Methodist Hospital Monday.  OhioHealth will host a community open house to exhibit the room mockups from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.  Employees filtered through the three mock patient rooms from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., smiling in approval at the wood-paneled floors and natural lighting.  The rooms were set up in a warehouse space, much like a movie set, near the hospital construction site at U.S. Route 33 and Avery-Muirfield Drive.

 

Dublin Methodist Hospital is scheduled to open in October 2007.  The 325,0000-square-foot, $130-million hospital will hold 94 beds, and could expand to as many as 300 beds.  The hospital is being built on 86.3 acres on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive, by Elford Construction and Gilbane Building Co.  Dublin Methodist Hospital will be OhioHealth's fifth core hospital, and will be the first full-service facility built in Central Ohio in more than 20 years.

New tech park construction moving quickly

Center will include one-of-a-kind particle-therapy/research facility

Thursday, January 12, 2006

By MICHAEL RACEY

Villager Staff Writer

 

Plans are moving along quickly for Dublin's tech park -- the Central Ohio Innovation Center -- and its anchor, the Ohio State University Health and Innovation Park.  Dublin City Council was presented with updates on both projects at its first meeting of the year on Monday night.  "The planning is being pushed by a user that will be one of a kind in North America," said Ben Hale Jr., an attorney for UMC Partners, the nonprofit enterprise group for the Ohio State University Medical Center.  Part of the UMC Partners' plans are to build a 120,000-square-foot particle-therapy facility for cancer research and treatment -- a facility that does not exist anywhere else on the continent, Hale said.

Workers install highest beam of Dublin's new hospital

By LIN RICE

 

More than two dozen people donned white hard hats and tramped through the mud, grit and rain Thursday to view the placement of the highest structural beam of Dublin Methodist Hospital.  Hospital President Cheryl Herbert was on hand to christen the beam, as she and members of the construction crew followed the tradition of signing their names on the beam before a crane hoisted it into place.  In another traditional "topping-off" ceremony measure, workers secured an American flag and a small pine tree to the top of the beam.

 

OhioHealth estimates its new hospital will be ready to open by fall 2007. Elford Construction and Gilbane Building Co. began construction of the $130 million hospital July 22 on 86.3 acres on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive in Dublin.  The 325,000-square-foot structure is located on the south side of Perimeter Drive, west of Avery-Muirfield Drive, and will house 94 private patient rooms. It can be expanded to accomodate up to 300 rooms with future construction.

OSU health center rezoning approved

Unanimous OK clears way for work to start

Thursday, March 23, 2006

By MICHAEL RACEY

Villager Staff Writer 

 

Dublin City Council Monday night unanimously approved rezoning the 111-acre Ohio State University Health & Innovation Center site within the 1,500-acre Central Ohio Innovation Center.  Approval, which came without questions or comments, clears the way for work to begin on the project, likely sometime this summer, according to Ben Hale Jr., an attorney representing UMC Partners, a nonprofit development group for OSU's Medical Center.

 

The 301,000-square-foot facility and site will cost an estimated $200-million and will house three health-care components in one building, according to officials for UMC Partners.  Dublin is donating $7-million worth of land to UMC Partners for the project and will spend more than $20-million on renovating and expanding the interchange of U.S. Route 33 and Post Road as the gateway to the tech park and center.

Work on the new Dublin Methodist Hospital is proceeding as planned, and officials believe it should opened as scheduled in fall 2007.  Cheryl Herbert, president of the hospital, led a tour through the 300,000-square-foot structure being built south of Perimeter Drive and north of U.S. Route 33.  Its address will become 7500 Hospital Drive in October, when the city will change the name of a portion of Perimeter Loop Road to Hospital Drive.

Dublin tech park lands $750K earmark

Business First of Columbus - 2:08 PM EDT Tuesday

 

Dublin's Central Ohio Innovation Center is slated to get $750,000 from the fiscal 2007 energy and water development appropriations bill passed by the House Appropriations Committee.  The money will go toward water and sewer infrastructure improvements at the proposed 1,500-acre tech park.  The spending bill still needs to pass the whole House of Representatives and Senate.

 

Congresswoman Deborah Pryce (R-Upper Arlington) and Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-Genoa Township) requested the funding.  Construction of the tech park along Route 33 in Dublin is scheduled to begin by the end of the year.  Dublin is spending about $25 million in construction and improvements to roads near the site.

Dublin has secured $750,000 in federal money for its tech park, the Central Ohio Innovation Center.  The funds are part of the 2007 U.S. energy and water appropriations bill.  They will help Dublin pay for necessary water- and sewer-system installations and improvements in the tech park -- a 1,500-acre site on the city's western edge.  Dublin is planning on spending more than $22-million to reconstruct the intersection of U.S. 33 and state Route 161.  It will serve as the gateway to the park.  Construction should begin next year.

Farm owner battles road work

Interchange cuts value, weakens history, he says

Monday, July 24, 2006

Dean Narciso

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

 

Dublin’s plan for a new interchange at Rts. 161 and 33 is supposed to help northwestern Franklin County manage growth and the city market its 1,500-acre techbusiness center.  The mix of stop signs and traffic lights at the current interchange in southeastern Union County confuses motorists, said Paul Hammersmith, Dublin’s city engineer.

 

Dublin is working on a design for a partial cloverleaf to replace the interchange, Hammersmith said.  Plans call for construction to begin by November. The project will be completed by the end of 2008, if no obstacles pop up.  But the owner of a farm at the intersection is fighting the city’s plans to force him to sell nearly 10 acres for one branch of the cloverleaf.

Villager Staff Writer

 

The developer of The Shoppes at River Ridge has announced several tenants of its future $26-million retail center on West Dublin-Granville Road, including California Pizza Kitchen and Sunflower Market. Tenants of the 15-acre "lifestyle center" being built on the south side of West Dublin-Granville will also include Acorn, Coldwater Creek and Jos. A Bank, according to K2 Group. Construction on the center's 100,000-square-feet of space will take about a year, according to the developer.

Jim Cramer and Dean Kissos believe in the power of numbers.  Within 5 miles of their planned Shoppes at River Ridge "lifestyle" center near downtown Dublin are nine upscale residential developments, five country clubs and 68,074 households with an average income of nearly $97,000.  Those are seemingly powerful statistics to support the K2 Group’s 100,000 square-foot development, which had six committed tenants before work began on the project last week.  When completed next year, the developers say, the center will create a new entry for Dublin.

By MICHAEL RACEY

Villager Staff Writer

 

Dublin received kudos from a panel of corporate business leaders for development of its tech park, the Central Ohio Innovation Center, last week.  The COIC is a 1,500-acre venture in the southwest section of Dublin.  The Ohio State University Medical Center will be the anchor and plans to spend $200-million on three facilities in the park.

 

Dublin donated about 100 acres of tech-park land to UMC Partners, the business-development wing of OSU's medical center, for the project.  The city also is spending $22-million on the reconstruction of an improved interchange at U.S. Route 33 and Post Road as the gateway to the COIC.

136,000-square-foot Shamrock Crossing development planned

Thursday, December 7, 2006

By MARK MAJOR

Villager Staff Writer

 

Dublin's Planning & Zoning Commission is expected to consider a zoning change that could lead to the development of about 24 acres at West Dublin-Granville Road and Shamrock Boulevard.  The developers of Shamrock Crossing will attend tonight's P&Z meeting to request a change in zoning from residential and suburban office and industrial district to planned-unit-development district.

 

The site's owners plan a 136,000-square-foot development made up of retail, office and service uses.  The issue was tabled after October's commission meeting amid concerns the proposed development might not be in keeping with the desired character of the West Dublin-Granville Road area, as envisioned by city officials.  "What planning commission wanted was a more urban streetscape, with buildings located closer to the street," said Claudia Husak, city planner. "They asked for a distinct streetscape and a pedestrian-centered environment."

By KATHLEEN L. RADCLIFF

 

A new development -- with residences in the $400,000 to $800,000 price range -- might be coming to the Dublin landscape.  Dublin City Council held the first reading of a rezoning application and development plan for Tartan Ridge during a meeting Monday.  The area consists of 189.57 acres located north of the intersection of Hyland-Croy and McKitrick Roads. It is bordered to the east by Jerome Road and to the north by Brock Road.

 

The plan calls for the development of 246 single-family homes and 24 townhouse units, priced in the $400,000 to $800,000 range, approximately 68,500 square feet of commercial space and 69.14 acres of open space.

City to review 'incubator' facility plan

Thursday, April 5, 2007

By BRITTINY DUNLAP

Villager Staff Writer

 

Funding sources are materializing for a concept designed to foster new technology companies in Dublin and central Ohio.  At the heart of the plan will be an "incubator" facility that would be on a site yet to be determined in the city's 1,500-acre Central Ohio Innovation Center at the Route 33-state Route 161 interchange.  The incubator would house several start-up companies, allowing them to share resources and be housed in a single 11,500-square-foot facility.

 

The nonprofit TechColumbus, which is involved with the effort, announced Friday the state's Third Frontier Commission awarded a $6.2-million grant for the Entrepreneurial Signature Program (ESP), a regional initiative to increase the number of new technology businesses in the 15-county central Ohio region.  Part of the money will be used to establish the Dublin incubator, and a similar facility in New Albany.

Villager Staff Writer 

 

Dublin Methodist Hospital President Cheryl Herbert can visualize almost exactly what the facility will look like as she winds her way around the construction site. After all, she has been working with the project for nearly three years.  As completion nears, Herbert couldn't be more excited that construction will be finished not only on time, in October, but also on budget. The $130-million hospital affiliated with OhioHealth is going up at 7500 Hospital Drive, on 89 acres south of Perimeter Drive and north of U.S. Route 33. It officially will open for business Jan. 8, 2008, and the staff will spend November and December hosting a variety of open houses for the community to come in and tour the facility.

"We hope you never need us," Lamont Yoder, Dublin Methodist Hospital Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer said during a tour of the new facility last week.  But, if you do, construction of Dublin Methodist Hospital is estimated to be complete Oct. 31, and open to accept patients in January 2008, Hospital Chief Executive Officer Cheryl Herbert said.

 

"We're ramping up in terms of personnel, and we are in the process of hiring the management team," she said from the hospital's administrative offices.  "It is going to get a bit more crowded in here soon, because our directors will be starting here at the end of June," she said.

Cardinal adding to headquarters

Thursday, October 4, 2007 - 3:48 AM

By Marla Matzer Rose, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

 

Cardinal Health began work yesterday on a second headquarters building that will accommodate 700 jobs being brought to its Dublin campus as part of a consolidation.  Chief Executive R. Kerry Clark said the new building will be a slightly smaller version of the 10-year-old headquarters, at 250,000 square feet compared with 375,000 square feet. He joked that the "bridge to nowhere" -- a covered walkway that leads from the existing building and was built with the intention of connecting to a second building -- will now become a "road to somewhere."

Dublin hospital hopes to draw patients as well as it has lured construction

By Carrie Ghose, Reporter - Business First

December 10, 2007, 12:00am EST

 

Dublin Methodist Hospital bills itself as a testing ground for the latest research in health care construction and operations.  But when the latest OhioHealth Corp. facility opens Jan. 8, 2008, it will be watched for other reasons as well.

 

Smallish now at 94 beds, the hospital has the capacity to grow to 300 beds, and it could draw patients away from its neighbors, including OhioHealth's Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Mount Carmel St. Ann's Hospital in Westerville and Memorial Hospital in Marysville.  The medical office building construction boom around it also could lead to a shift in where primary care and specialty practices operate.

( . . . )

Dublin saw its population quadruple between 1980 and 1990 and double again since then to an estimated 39,000 in 2006.  Growth is expected to continue at a 6 percent annualized clip for five more years.  The hospital's service area also includes Powell, Hilliard, Plain City and parts of southern Union and Delaware counties.  Those markets mean a higher percentage of patients with private insurance will visit the hospital.

Wirchanski fighting to keep farmland

Wednesday,  September 3, 2008

John Wirchanski is fighting with Dublin over land that has been in his family for more than 170 years.  Wirchanski owns about 100 acres of farmland at the intersection of Post Road and U.S. Route 33.

 

Dublin wants to take 20 acres of his land located off Industrial Parkway, north of state Route 161.  U.S. Route 33 bisects the area.  Wirchanski's land, in Union County, is the biggest piece of land the city is trying to acquire so it can reconfigure the highway interchange into a partial cloverleaf.

 

Wirchanski suggested increasing the size of the existing ramps instead, but Dublin didn't agree with him.  He is also resisting four roundabouts Dublin wants to install -- three along state Route 161 and one at Industrial Parkway.

Cardinal growth covers spectrum

Health company's headquarters gets so big, it needs color coding, and it might grow more

Monday,  March 23, 2009 - 3:00 AM

By Mike Pramik, The Columbus Dispatch

 

Cardinal's $50 million, four-story addition expands the corporate campus to more than 600,000 square feet.  It will be able to accommodate 2,650 employees, including 950 in the addition.  Initially, about 500 will move into the new space.  They're mostly from Cardinal's medical-products supply-chain business based near Chicago, said spokesman Troy Kirkpatrick.  When they do, they'll encounter a modern interpretation of the corporate office, as designed by Bird Houk Collaborative.

Dublin’s Oak Park getting houses, but retail section still a waiting game

By Kevin Kemper, Columbus Business First

August 24, 2009, 12:00am EDT

 

An economy in recession plus a struggling housing market have put a retail development connected to a tony Dublin housing project on hold until a recovery emerges.

 

More than two years after revealing plans for the project, Columbus developer Jerome Solove Development Inc. has put its 39,700-square-foot retail and office center planned for Hyland Croy Road on hold until spring 2010 – and perhaps longer if the market doesn’t respond.

Dublin incentives to aid push for green businesses

By Jeff Bell, Columbus Business First

September 21, 2009, 12:00am EDT

 

Dublin’s hopes of attracting green businesses have received a double shot in the arm.  City Council on Sept. 8 signed off on an incentive to bring the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition to the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center off Post Road.  Council also voted to create a green business incubator at the center, offering rent subsidies and other financial help to fledgling companies locating there.

 

The moves are another indication that Dublin wants to encourage the development of research and technology companies, said Dana McDaniel, deputy city manager and economic development director. ... The seven-month-old Entrepreneurial Center, a partnership between Dublin, TechColumbus and other groups that support small businesses, has office spaces sized for one- and two-person startups.

 

It also provides tenants with entrepreneurial training, help with finding venture capital and other support services.  It has 14 tenants, with another 11 in the wings to sign leases, McDaniel said.

Developers of medical offices have space on hand amid slowed demand

Scott Rawdon, Columbus Business First

September 28, 2009, 12:00am EDT

 

Developers of medical office buildings surrounding the new Dublin Methodist Hospital have found that filling the space with doctors is a process that calls for patience.

 

Daimler Group Inc. has been an active developer in the area, constructing four buildings near the hospital, including a 100,000-square-foot facility done in partnership with Dublin Methodist on its campus.  It’s the only medical office structure attached to the building, connected via a second-floor walkway.  Called the Dublin MOB, it’s home to physician practices, said Paul Ghidotti, Daimler’s executive vice president.

 

OhioHealth Corp. opened the hospital in January 2008 west of Avery Road and north of Route 161 at 7500 Hospital Drive.  It caused an immediate saturation of medical office space in Dublin, creating a tenant’s market and keeping developers on their toes to lure clients.

Delta Energy mulling move to Dublin

By Matt Burns, Columbus Business First

Updated: October 19, 2009, 4:10pm EDT

 

A proposed relocation for one of Central Ohio’s largest privately held companies could also be a homecoming of sorts.

 

Columbus-based Delta Energy LLC is eyeing a move to Dublin, where the company has proposed building a new headquarters on a more than 4-acre parcel the city owns at the southwest corner of Emerald Parkway and Perimeter Drive.

Development won't be as brisk next year

Wednesday,  December 23, 2009 - 2:31 PM

By Jennifer Noblit, ThisWeek Staff Writer

 

Development in Dublin will be down -- but not out -- in 2010.  The recession means development and construction in the city will continue to decline next year, but a few major projects will continue to progress.  City Manager Terry Foegler said the IGS Energy headquarters on Emerald Parkway is set to open in 2010, and Delta Energy should start building its corporate headquarters at the intersection of Perimeter Drive and Commerce Parkway.  The final phase of Emerald Parkway will begin.  The last leg will extend Emerald Parkway from Riverside Drive to Bright Road, which stretches from Riverside to Sawmill Road. 

 

Growth in the northwest side of the city will slow in 2010, especially with the dissolution of the economic development agreement between Dublin and Ohio Proton Therapy.  The company had hoped to build a cancer treatment center to anchor the city's Central Ohio Innovation Center, but financing could not be found by the end-of-the-year deadline, so development is slowing in the area around the state Route 161, U.S. Route 33 and Post Road intersection.  Planning in 2010 will include the Bridge Street Corridor study.  It should be completed in the first half of the year, although Foegler said the study could lead to additional work.

Dublin once again commissioning a large, outdoor work

Sunday,  January 3, 2010 - 3:14 AM

By Jeffrey Sheban, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

 

The little city with a big reputation for public art is at it again.  Dublin -- home to monuments depicting Wyandot Chief Leatherlips, golfer Jack Nicklaus and 109 ears of concrete corn -- will commission its first large-scale permanent work in nearly a decade.  Three out-of-state artists are vying for a $150,000 stipend to create an outdoor sculpture near the city-owned Karrer Barn, built in the late 1870s, at 225 S. High St. Installation later this year is set to coincide with the city's bicentennial.

 

Dublin's last major art project came in 2001, when Going, Going . . . Gone! -- a multi-piece bronze sculpture marking the passage of time through baseball imagery -- went up along Cosgray Road.  Previous works include Leatherlips (1990), Out of Bounds (1992), Field of Corn (With Osage Orange Trees) (1994), Relief Sculptures (1996), Watch House (1998) and the Nicklaus tribute (1999).  The city changed its focus after 2001, investing in more than 40 smaller sculptures and reliefs, most of which can be seen in Coffman Park and several public buildings.  "We are going back to the way we used to do it, and I think it will be fun," said David S. Guion, executive director of the Dublin Arts Council and a nonvoting member of the selection committee.

Rhode Island artist to create Dublin Bicentennial piece

By Kathleen L. Radcliff, Columbus Local News

Published: Thursday, February 11, 2010 - 7:22 PM EST

 

Dublin Arts Council Executive Director David Guion announced during Dublin City Council's regular session Monday, Feb. 8 that the Dublin Bicentennial Public Art selection committee chose Brower Hatcher as the recipient of the project's $150,000 all-inclusive commission. 

 

Hatcher's artistic concept is to build the memory of the historic George M. Karrer blacksmith shop that once stood on the Karrer Barn property, 225 S. High St., in Historic Dublin, Cooper said.  The property is owned by the city and was selected as the site for the Bicentennial Public Artwork installation.

 

Hatcher proposes building the old foundation with the hearth, an anvil and the historic wheelwright table to re-create the image of the building as a digital matrix in powder-coated metal rod with reflective discs creating the effects of dissolution and of light.  Hatcher envisions the approximate 13-foot-square, 16-foot-tall structure as a sophisticated trellis, which could be allowed to support a growth of climbing vines to periodically hide the structure.

Rhode Island artist to create Dublin Bicentennial piece

Residents in revolt over artwork

Dublin subdivision requesting change in latest project

Saturday,  February 20, 2010 - 3:02 AM

By Holly Zachariah, The Columbus Dispatch

 

Some of the people who might have to look at the public art project planned for an entrance to their Dublin neighborhood intend to tell the City Council on Monday night "not so fast and not here."  The council is expected to vote Monday on whether to approve a $150,000 contract with a Rhode Island artist to build a stone-and-steel sculpture on a piece of city land known as the Karrer property.

 

The piece will be a modern take on an old blacksmith's shop.  It is to have a 13-foot-square stone base and be 16 feet high.  It is to include a stone wheelwright table, and the outside is to be covered with climbing vines.  A selection committee put together by the Dublin Arts Council chose the design this month for the city's bicentennial celebration this year.

 

Below is a rendering of the art project and a location map.

Dublin OKs public art despite complaints

Some residents suggest court fight

Tuesday,  February 23, 2010 - 2:47 AM

By Holly Zachariah

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH 

 

Despite opposition from the surrounding neighborhood, the Dublin City Council voted last night to approve a piece of public art on city-owned, historic land.

 

By a 5-2 vote, the council authorized a $150,000 contract with Providence, R.I., artist Brower Hatcher for his art: a modern take on an old blacksmith's shop.  It is to celebrate Dublin's bicentennial this year.

 

Council members Michael Keenan and Richard Gerber voted against the contract, saying the site-selection process didn't do enough to take into consideration the character and protection of the Historic District.

Dublin: State of the City

Despite economic turndown, Dublin still moving ahead

BY KATHLEEN L. RADCLIFF, COLUMBUS LOCAL NEWS

Published: Tuesday, March 9, 2010 - 8:01 PM EST

 

"It would be very easy to say, the state of the city is good," Dublin City Manager Terry Foegler said, as he delivered the State-of-the-City address.  Foegler reminded those gathered that, "In spite of the economic turndown, Dublin had many positive stories to tell."  The theme of this year's address, "200 years. One Community. Endless Possibilities," honors the city's past, celebrates its present, and looks forward to its future.

 

In looking back and moving forward, "There were pivotal and catalytic events that laid the foundation for growth and development in Dublin," Foegler said, including the construction of Interstate 270 and U.S. Route 33, creating accessibility to the city, and opening up Dublin for development; Ashland, Inc. making its corporate home in the city and setting the tone for future high quality office development; and the Muirfield Village Golf Club and residential community, setting the stage for well-planned residential development and providing utilities for the expansion of the city.

 

"Dublin is a relatively new community," he said, growing from a population of 681 in 1970 to 41,000 in 2009.  "Nearly 65,000 people work in the city, and we are home to, literally, thousands of companies."  However, city officials continue to face the challenge of continuous reinvestment in high quality services to its residents and in its community facilities, while facing, for the first time in its history, a decline in income tax revenues.
