Delaware City Council unanimously approved several resolutions and ordinances at its meeting on Nov. 11.
Two resolutions said the city had no objection to the Powell Community Infrastructure Financing Authority (CIFA), which is adding territories to the CIFA. A CIFA is also known as a new community authority (NCA).
The proposed developments are 23 single-family condominiums called “The Courtyards on Sawmill” located south of Grey Oaks Drive; and 119 single-family homes at Home and Steitz roads. “Costs of these community improvements will be paid by the sub-developers with the assistance of a community development charge,” the legislative summary states.
City Attorney Darren Shulman said the “no objection” language was necessary because Delaware is considered a “proximate city” to Powell.
City Manager Tom Homan said Delaware will be doing something similar with its own NCAs.
Council approved ordinances for subdivision plats for the Estates of Braumiller, adding 30 single-family lots at Tree Line Way and Oakley Drive; and 16 single-family lots for Glenross Golf Club at Clubhouse Drive.
After the passage of the ordinances, Homan said, “This area is changing daily, and it’s good to see that this is happening. It helps the city in a number of ways.”
In addition, council passed a resolution to add a member to the Recreation Levy Sub-Committee, as well as the task of evaluating recreation levy expenditures.
