Village Council Section
In a split decision at its Feb. 3 regular meeting, Village Council granted Home, Inc. tap fee waivers for the group’s planned senior apartment building.
Strong storms rolled into Yellow Springs on April 3, 2018, dumping close to three inches of rain on the village in short order. What happened next was the source of an Ohio EPA rebuke and is now a subject of concern for Village Council as it considers spurring new development in town.
In her first Village Council meeting on Jan. 6, new Council Member Laura Curliss questioned the Village’s stated goals related to housing.
At its final meeting of the year, Village Council agreed to allow local medical marijuana producer Cresco to emit light from its greenhouses past the previously agreed upon time of sunset — at least for the next few weeks.
The Decade in Review: Village Council
2019 Year in Review: Village Council
A redesigned 54-unit senior apartment building was given the green light by Village Council at its Dec. 2 regular meeting.
As Village Council members took their first vote on the 2020 budget at their Dec. 2 regular meeting, they also briefly discussed the state of municipal finances.
The majority of respondents to a Village survey on its temporary traffic project do not support making the changes permanent. At the same time, more survey respondents felt the one-way design on South Walnut Street made school drop-off safer for children at Mills Lawn Schools than didn’t. Those were some of the highlights of a Village survey on its three-week traffic trial, which involved several changes to downtown streets and parking areas.
Next year the Village of Yellow Springs is projected to bring in $13.9 million and spend $15.4 million, according to a draft budget Council considered at its Nov. 4 meeting.
