Hilliard Happenings

HB 69: Reps still weighing TIF-exemption bill. A proposed state law that would exempt some township fire and emergency-medical districts from having property-tax revenue redirected as part of tax-increment-financing agreements has a final hurdle to clear before a vote in the Ohio House of Representatives, but how the vote might go remains unclear. Central Ohio city officials and township leaders consistently have expressed opposing opinions on House Bill 69. Proponents of TIFs, like many local city officials, have said the bill is a step closer to making TIFs ineffective, whereas agencies from which TIFs usually divert property taxes, such as township fire departments, have said the bill would restore fairness to a process over which they have no control.

Hilliard History

The original Hilliard area was formed in 1853 when Piqua resident John Reed Hilliard platted farmland purchased in western Franklin County. Known as “Hiliard’s Station” originally, the land was purchased in anticipation of the growth of the new Columbus, Piqua, and Indiana Railroad, which passed through the farmland.

While the area's economy was initially dominated by farming, the proximity of the railroad brought commercial and industrial success. In 1854, the word “Station” was dropped from the town's name and a post office was established. The Village of Hilliard was established in 1869 with a population of only 280 residents.

Residential development proceeded slowly through the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, but the pace of growth accelerated dramatically during the 1950’s and 1960’s after construction of three large subdivisions and connection to Columbus sewer and water systems. The Village of Hilliard, 1950 population of 610, achieved the status of a city in 1960 with a population of 5,633.
