The City of Hilliard broke ground on The Well in April 2023.
The Cosgray Road extension is expected to begin in 2023. This will extend Cosgray Road south from Scioto Darby Road, through the Jerman property, and connect it with Alton & Darby Creek Road north of Heritage Lakes subdivision. This new street will provide access to The Well. Construction is expected to be completed on Cosgray Road in 2025.
The Well is expected to open in summer 2025.
On Nov. 2, 2021, Hilliard residents approved Issue 22, an additional 0.5% municipal income tax, paid by individuals who work in the City of Hilliard corporate boundaries (regardless of whether they live here).
The additional revenue will be dedicated for recreation and parks, including design, construction, and operation of a new community center comparable to those in neighboring communities.
In preparing to place Issue 22 on the ballot, the City performed resident surveys and focus groups to identify what kinds of recreation and parks amenities our community desires most. This research included a regional market assessment that examine the types of recreational facilities, programs, and services needed in Hilliard and nearby communities.
The results of the survey, market study, feasibility report, and cost estimates for a possible community center were presented to City Council this spring. In June, RPAC recommended that Hilliard City Council place an initiative on the Nov. 2 ballot.
