The City Council in Delaware Ohio voted to enact a six-month freeze on select residential developments. However, according to the City Planning Director, roughly “6,100 single-family and multifamily dwellings approved but not yet constructed are not affected by the freeze. They represent at least 12 years of construction ahead.” The move was unanimous and supported by developers who “would rather have a detailed, well-thought-out and well-received comprehensive plan, one that they can live with.” City officials say that the “hiatus will allow city officials to adopt the rewritten plan and prepare a comprehensive rezoning map.” Delaware is the fifth-fastest growing city in Ohio.
