NAIOP Central Ohio Public Policy Update - Early June 2023

This is the third issue of a new NAIOP effort to provide an update on City of Columbus/Central Ohio public policy issues that impact commercial development. This update will be sent twice a month. As we develop this new tool for members, feedback on the general content or questions about specific items are welcome and should be send to debbielee@centralohionaiop.org

Columbus EV Readiness: Implementation Rules are Next Steps

Columbus expects draft rules on the  City's EV Readiness program for review and feedback by the middle of June, with a request for comments two or three weeks after that. Following this initial feedback period, it is expected that there will be a second comment period. The process is expected to culminate in a Construction Industry Communication memo sometime in September, in advance of the EV ordinance implementation date of January 1st, 2024.

NAIOP will circulate the City's initial draft as soon as it is available.

Columbus Fire Pump Testing Changes
draft Construction Industry Communication is available to address the testing of fire pumps for those buildings where diesel or natural gas generators provide emergency power to electric fire pumps. NAIOP members are asked to give DebbieLee Dougherty any feedback before June 15th.

Columbus Council May Consider New Rental Legislation
Council's Housing Chair Shayla Favor recently held informal hearings on two pieces of legislation she is developing:

  • "Pay to Stay" - This legislation would allow residents time to secure rental assistance dollars until an eviction judgment. 
  • "Third Party Payments" - This legislation would require landlords to accept a third-party payment on behalf of a tenant if that tenant is not in breach of their rental agreement.

NAIOP has requested copies of draft ordinances as soon as they are available. Any NAIOP member conversing with Council Chair Favor is asked to contact DebbieLee Dougherty to compare notes on what details we hear for these ordinances. Read more...
