Approval of a new vacation rental home by owner within the city limits are among the items on tap for the Tuesday, Jan. 16 meeting of the Grove City Council.

During the session, set for 6 p.m., in Room 5 of the Grove Community Center, Tim and Dennet Brecheen, doing business as Trustmark Group, LLC, will bring their request for a special use permit application to the council.

The Brecheens are asking to use the home at 1106 Dogwood Drive as a vacation rental home.

Tuesday’s meeting will first include a public hearing allowing community members a chance to speak regarding the special use permit request.

After the public hearing, council members will discuss the issue and determine what action will be taken.

According to information released by Debbie Bottoroff, assistant city manager, of the 20 property owners within a 300-foot radius of the property, only nine responded.

Of those responses, six were not in favor of the special use permit, while three were. An additional three residents not within the 300-feet radius sent in responses, with all three not in favor of the permit.

The property in question is located in the Village of Honey Creek. When the issue came before the planning and zoning commission, four members voted in favor to send the special use permit proposal to the city council.
