    Where the heck are you getting 800 apts? It’s 300 + 115 + 52 on Indianola, which is 467 apartments.

    According to the latest updates there’s some displeasure with the “Extended-Stay Loophole”. So far only one of the builders has, cautiously, said that they will consider a meeting with residents. The rest are waiting until the initial fury dies down and will comment “when we’re further along in the process”. Story below:

    Looks like the projects may be dead (or delayed) due to sanitary sewer capacity issues that need to be sorted out. From the Clintonville Discussion Forum on Facebook:

    The developments proposed on Indianola (Dixie and Cooke Road) are both dead.
    Sewers & Drains says the sewer system is at capacity and no further high density developments are allowed in Clintonville until they get it sorted out.

    I’m really not upset with this. To me, it looked and felt more like suburban apartment blocks than something that would fit well in the city.

    Wow, best quotes from the article:

    “But don’t pull out your carrot sticks yet.”

    “A severe storm brings an instant basement salad.”

    Despite the projects not necessarily being the best urban design, I find it amusing that Clintonville still found a way to kill them. With the sewer issue, they have affectively shut down all development on Indianola indefinitely- or at least until they get the issue resolved, which could take years.

    I wonder what the difference in expected sewer output really is of an industrial food manufacturer and apartments. Are there real numbers to support this?

    Are you saying that Clintonville residents somehow had a say in the Division Sewerage and Drainage killing these projects?

    Lol, okay then. What other dense urban project? 2nd is Columbus that far behind on sewage and water development can’t happen? Cities in Texas are growing twice as fast and don’t have this issue. So I either say Columbus is a complete failure or I call lie’s

    The general pitchfork and torch crowd? No. I have no idea if it’s a real issue, but I have no reason to think it isn’t. That said, I still find it amusing. This has to be the first time I’ve ever heard of development being killed because of a sewer capacity issue, though. The fact that it happens to be in Clintonville, of all places, just makes it seem that much more appropriate.

    I have never heard about a development being cancelled because of sewer or water. New York City hmmmm how many per sq Mile

    Ok, then, you guys sound like experts on the issue. Obviously, the CAC mafia concocted this “water/sewer” issue to kill off these projects. Conspiracy theories are so much fun.

    I’m a little dubious of the “sewer thing” as well. I’ve been following development in Columbus for years and I’ve never heard of development being halted for sewer capacity, even when the existing sewers were overflowing into the rivers (and maybe development should have been halted in some cases but wasn’t).

    Who said that? Do you have a source besides Facebook? The city has been spending tons of money in Clintonville on the sewers since that article was printed 8 years ago. There have been contractors tracking down infiltration leaks and lining the sanitary sewers for the last couple of summers. The Marzetti incident in 2008 only impacted a few blocks and was caused by a blockage, IIRC.
