COUNTY AUDITOR TAX LEVY ESTIMATOR AVAILABLE

The upcoming election will feature one or more levies that may affect your property tax bill (Metro Parks, Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities, Grandview Heights City Schools).  To learn more about the potential impact of these levies on your property tax bill, you can visit the “Tax Levy Estimator” on the Franklin County Auditor’s website (www.FranklinCountyAuditor.com).  Once you find your property on the Auditor’s website (“Property Search”), click on the “Quick Links” selection in the column of options on the left side of the page.  Once that page opens, you can find the “Levy Estimator” as an option under the “Calculators” category.  The information provided will identify both current levies in place and the impact of the levies being considered at the upcoming election.

NOTE:  Grandview Heights City Schools currently has a 1.9 mill bond levy in place that will expire after 2019 collections, at the same time collections for the new issue would be phased-in.  As a result, residents will have an offsetting reduction to the proposed new millage increase shown on the Franklin County Auditor’s Tax Estimator.  The amount residents pay on the current levy can be viewed by scrolling down to the bottom of the Tax Estimator page, where the cost of existing levies is shown.  The levy that will be ending is listed under Grandview Heights CSD as expiring 2020.  So, the levy amount noted for the proposals being considered on the November ballot can be reduced by the expiring levy amount, providing the actual impact on your property taxes.

Also, you can access a video of Grandview Heights School Treasurer Beth Collier explaining the impact of the proposed levy by clicking here.

For further clarification, please contact Beth Collier, Treasurer/CFO of Grandview Heights City Schools at 614-485-4021.

CONCEPT PLAN FOR 2015 W. FIFTH AVE. ACCEPTED BY VILLAGE COUNCIL

At its August 20, 2018 meeting, Village Council accepted the official Concept Plan for residential development of 2015 W. Fifth Ave. The Plan presented by F2 Companies calls for saving and utilizing the existing manor house and developing the property with townhouses and flats, the total number not to exceed 40 units.  Council will continue to review the Plan under the Village’s Code of Ordinances (Sections 154.094 – 154.099) for the creation of a Planned Development District (PDD).   This review process by Council will examine the proposal in more detail.  Public input is welcome during the process, with a scheduled public hearing as part of Council’s review.  Link to a rendering of the proposal and site plan.

A complete copy of the packet submitted to Council for consideration of redevelopment under a PDD is available at Village hall.  You can be provided an electronic copy of the proposal by submitting a request to marblecl@rrcol.com.

REMINDER: BIKE HELMETS REQUIRED FOR CHILDREN UNDER AGE 18

The Village of Marble Cliff requires helmets for all children under the age of 18 who are riding their bike or other forms of transportation such as bike trailers and scooters in the Village (this is the same requirement in effect in Grandview Heights; the Village recognizes the Grandview Heights Traffic Code by legal reference as the traffic regulations for the Village).

The Village supports bicycling in the community.  The Scioto Greenways Path along Dublin Rd., the multi-use path from Dublin Rd. to Arlington Ave. and the bike friendly streets in the Village are all an effort to promote bicycling as a healthy mode of transportation.   Walk-ability and safe streets are important to our community.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), bike helmets are the single most effective way to reduce head injuries and fatalities resulting from bike crashes, with proper helmet usage having been demonstrated to reduce the risk of head injury by 85%, severe brain injury by 88%, and bicycle related fatalities by 75%.   AAP provides several tips for getting your children to wear their helmets such as: start the habit early, wear a helmet yourself, and talk to your kids about why it is important to wear a helmet.

It is also important to wear a helmet that fits properly. This guide can help walk parents through proper fit of a helmet or you can watch this video
