Blueprint Clintonville: Morse/Dominion Area Green Infrastructure

The Morse/Dominion Area Green Infrastructure project will construct bioretention basin and/or curb bump outs with bioretention along the following streets between Beech Hill Road and Indianola Avenue: Morse Road, Jeffrey Place, Royal Forest Boulevard, Beechwold Avenue and Wetmore Road. The project will also construct bioretention basin and/or curb bump outs with bioretention along the following streets between Colerain Avenue and Indianola Avenue: Beaumont Road, Garden Road, Weisheimer Road, and Dominion Boulevard. A larger bioretention facility will be constructed in the existing traffic island along the eastern edge of Indianola Avenue from Royal Forest Boulevard to Beechwold Avenue.

The goal of the project is to provide detention and water quality improvement to rain water that will be redirected from the sanitary sewer system by future Blueprint projects. For more information see the Blueprint Columbus project summary and the following website. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2017.

The estimated construction cost is approximately $3.5 million. Financing is being provided through a below market-rate loan through the OEPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program. Prior to granting this loan, the Ohio EPA required a detailed submittal from the Division of Sewerage and Drainage to determine the project’s eligibility.

The Ohio EPA has completed a Limited Environmental Review (LER) for this project. Click here to view the LER and the letter of "Notice of Issuance of a Limited Environmental Review and Final Finding of No Significant Impact to All Interested Citizens, Organizations and Government Agencies."
