Hilliard economic-development director David Meeks said only time will tell how a mandatory 60-day waiting period for rezonings from the approval of Issue 9 would affect the city.

"We've been given a new set of rules and will do the best we can. Now that it has passed, only time will tell," Meeks said March 22.
...
Meeks said he wouldn't need to tell future developers upfront about potential hurdles that could result from the changes.
"They know. The development community is concerned about what has happened in Hilliard," Meeks said.
...
City officials, including Mayor Don Schonhardt, City Council President Nathan Painter and Meeks, campaigned against Issue 9, opining its passage would have a sharp and sudden negative impact on the city's ability to compete for quality commercial and residential developments.
...
"We will wait and see how it all plays out," Meeks said.
Looking back, he said, the campaign was stressful on him and others who campaigned against Issue 9.

The condos will be high-end, with a starting price of about $250,000, according to Hilliard economic development director David Meeks.

"This is going to really be first-class," Meeks said.
The area was originally zoned for single-family homes and condos, according to Meeks.The city decided, however, that it wanted to develop a housing area aimed at empty-nesters.
"We're trying to hold down family homes with kids to provide some relief to the schools," Meeks said.
...
"For someone who lived in Upper Arlington, for example, living in Hilliard keeps them close to their friends, and often close to their children who have often moved to suburbs like Hilliard or Dublin," Meeks said.
The architecture of the condos is also meant to have a "home" feel to it, with a lot of stone and brick, and plenty of angles in each roof.
Additionally, there has been some talk of having a doctor on call 24 hours a day for the complex, and having a valet available for services such as carrying groceries for residents.
"It's really service oriented," Meeks said.
The complex will also be home to a clubhouse, estimated to cost a little more than $2-million, that rivals those of a country club.
Original plans called for the complex to butt up against Leap Road.However, plans were changed and about eight acres now will be reserved for professional offices, according to Meeks.
...
Meeks said sewer is already being run throughout the area, and said construction should begin this summer.
"We're really excited about this project," he said.

Meeks explains tax abatements during committee meeting

...
During an Economic Development committee meeting on Monday night, Hilliard economic development director David Meeks gave members of council a PowerPoint presentation on the tax abatements the city uses to lure businesses to move to Hilliard.
Meeks said the information is important because there is often misunderstanding in the community and the city gets accused of taking tax money away from the schools.
"The whole idea is that when we do these abatements, we do them responsibly so that it benefits the schools," Meeks said.
The reason abatements on real estate taxes work without hurting the schools is because of how the state determines school funding.
The more real estate tax a school collects from properties in its district, the less funding the state provides the school.
Meeks used an example to explain what this translates into for the schools.
...
Meeks said those who complain that the city is taking money from the schools are not looking at the right numbers.
"We try to focus on the actual impact," he said.
