Grandview Parks and Rec will pick up and recycle cut Christmas trees from January 7 until February 4, 2019. Please place them along the curb, not in the street. To facilitate recycling of trees, please observe the following rules.
– Remove all lights, decorations and tree stands.
– Once the tree is out of the house, please remove any tree bag or plastic and dispose. – – Plastic bags are not recyclable with the trees.
– Do not remove limbs or cut tree in half.
– Do not set-out other items with the Christmas trees, including wreaths and pine roping, which contain wire or metal frames. These items can not be recycled.
Depending upon the number of trees set out for pick-up, all streets are scheduled to have trees picked up at least once per week.
Issue 41b will be on the November 6, 2018 ballot asking residents of the Village to approve Sunday sales of wine/mixed and spirituous liquor for 1400 Food Lab (a Marble Cliff food oriented business at 1400 Dublin Road). The request was initiated by 1400 Food Lab and is location specific. The issuance of permits for Sunday sales is by the Division of Liquor Control (Ohio Department of Commerce), but considered a local option that is decided by the voters of the jurisdiction in which the requesting entity is located.
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.

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.
