South Corridor requirements halts construction

It appears the company planning to bring a different flavor of ice cream and popsicles to Westerville will have to wait until they get approval for their plans.

The old Sew and Save building building on South State Street across from Tim Horton’s was recently painted pink, purple, and white. The colors match those of Diamond’s Ice Cream in Dublin who received a notice of violation from city code enforcement that in order to continue converting the business it would have to meet the requirements of the South State Street Corridor Overlay District. The colors appear to violate city code as noted in the letter.

“This overlay district, in part, requires exterior building materials to be wood, stone, or other natural materials in a subtle, neutral or earthtone color as determined by the Westerville Planning Commission.”

Until the new business owner obtains a Conditional Use Permit from Westerville they are prohibited from doing any more work on the building.
