Property owners in the Shier Rings Road area of Dublin, Ohio will soon learn if the City of Dublin plans to acquire their property by eminent domain as part of the Shier Rings Road Corridor project under consideration. Government authorities and public utilities have the power to take private property for public use through a process known as eminent domain. When this occurs, the property owner has the right to receive adequate compensation for their property.
A public stakeholder input meeting was held in September at which time property owners, business owners and residents were invited to attend and participate in discussions regarding the city’s plans for the Shier Rings Road Corridor. The city will use the feedback obtained from the open house to prepare final recommendations for the project. It is expected that the final recommendations will be presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission in November 2013. Stakeholders will then receive notice of the next opportunity for public review.
Proposed design recommendations will include potential of new roadways in the West Innovation District (west of Avery Road, north of Shier Rings Road), additional lanes of travel on Shier Rings Road to widen that road to four lanes, roundabout intersections, bic ycle and pedestrian facilities.
Due to the rapid expansion and development within the City of Dublin and neighboring communities, the City of Dublin has numerous short and long term plans to improve existing roadways, create additional roadways, create new parks, walkways and bicycle trails, extend key water, sewer and electric transmission lines and construct an additional water tank.
