Recently, the Strongsville City Council introduced an Ordinance that would re-zone a vacant area on Marks Road from GI-A (General Industrial-A) to RT-C (Townhouse-Cluster).
If passed, this Ordinance will allow the City of Strongsville to increase the housing supply, which would provide for more housing options, overall greater economic investment, population growth, diversity, and much more. ACAR applauds the leaders of the City of Strongsville for taking up this important matter and believes the proposed changes are a great step towards making the City of Strongsville a home for all.
ACAR encourages all policymakers to seek creative and innovative ways to expand the availability of housing and is supportive of measures such as this. By allowing the development of townhouses and cluster homes, the City is creating a simple and cost-effective solution to the housing shortage crisis.
The Ordinance reads as follows:
Ordinance No. 2023-071: by Mayor Perciak and All Members of Council. AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE ZONING MAP OF THE CITY OF STRONGSVILLE ADOPTED BY SECTION 1250.03 OF TITLE SIX, PART TWELVE OF THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES OF STRONGSVILLE TO CHANGE THE ZONING CLASSIFICATION OF CERTAIN VACANT PROPERTY LOCATED ON MARKS ROAD, IN THE CITY OF STRONGSVILLE, FROM GI-A (GENERAL INDUSTRIAL-A) CLASSIFICATION TO RT-C (TOWNHOUSE-CLUSTER) CLASSIFICATION (PORTION OF PPN 394-07-001), AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY.
