Planning & Zoning to Review Rezoning Proposal to Expand Hill Farm Subdivision

The City of Hilliard Planning and Zoning Commission will review a rezoning application to expand the Hill Farm subdivision at its next meeting.

The application to expand the subdivision before P&Z will not receive a recommendation from City Administration to deny or approve the request because there are no sewer connections available in the area of the proposed development.

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., Thursday, June 13 in council chambers at the Hilliard Municipal Building, 3800 Municipal Way.

The meeting is open to the public. Written or emailed comments may be filed with the City prior to the meeting date. Copies of written or emailed comments will be provided to all P&Z Commission members.

The proposed expansion would add 300 single-family lots and 186 acres of open space within the 265 acres of the proposed subdivision, located near Elliott, Scioto Darby, and Langton roads.

The first phase of Hill Farm, which is currently under construction, 229 single-family lots on 204 acres. The initial project was approved by Hilliard City Council in 2021.

The properties proposed for rezoning are located within the Big Darby Creek Watershed. 

In 2006, the City of Hilliard joined other municipalities in voluntarily entering into an agreement known as the Big Darby Accord Watershed Master Plan that placed limits on growth within the Darby watershed. The Accord also capped the number of new sewer connections within Hilliard’s portion of the Darby watershed to 2,000.  

Development projects, including the first phase of Hill Farm, have since consumed all allotted sewer connections agreed to under the Accord, meaning that there are currently no remaining connections available to the Hill Farm expansion.

The City is currently undergoing discussions with the City of Columbus in reference to increasing the number of available connections, following the completion of a sanitary sewer capacity study for the region.
