Whitehall Community Park to expand by 18 acres thanks to Heartland Bank’s commitment to City Whitehall Community Park to expand by 18 acres thanks to Heartland Bank’s commitment to City
At the State of the City Address on March 16th, Mayor Kim Maggard announced that Heartland Bank has chosen to relocate and expand its corporate headquarters to Whitehall. The bank plans to build a two-story, 60,000-square-foot building along North Hamilton Road at the site of the current Whitehall Parks Maintenance Complex, which is moving to the former U.S. Armory site on Country Club Road later this year. Heartland is currently located in Gahanna near the intersection of Johnstown and North Hamilton roads. The bank is bringing to Whitehall nearly 100 jobs, a $5-million annual payroll and a branch office to serve Whitehall residents. Because of Heartland’s commitment to our City, Whitehall is able to embark on a multi-phased plan that allows Community Park to increase by about 18 acres. The administration, with the support of City Council, has chosen not to renew the lease for the Four Seasons Golf Center, the golf dome across from the Columbus Country Club on Broad Street and adjacent to Whitehall Community Park. The City has owned this property since the late 1990s and has leased the dome and driving range to the golf center. It is no longer financially responsible to continue leasing this property, because the City would actually lose money in the coming decades. Instead, a portion of this site will be transformed into an office campus that once completed could produce an estimated 500 additional jobs and generate $20 million in new payroll, while at the same time allowing for Whitehall Community Park to grow. Mayor Maggard proposed last night that 100% of all income tax collected from development at these two sites go toward establishing a Parks Improvement Endowment Fund to fund future parks improvements and enhancements. Once fully phased, this fund is estimated to generate more than $500,000 annually. Read more on WhitehallMeansBusiness.com
