Grove City Town Center | Civic Place Parking Expansion

The City of Grove City recently purchased the house at 4302 Civic Place, abutting the parking lot just north of the Grove City Community Club. The purchase was completed to expand parking and improve Town Center pedestrian connectivity. In addition to removing the house and expanding the parking lot, the project includes several enhancements.

The expanded parking lot will have new lighting, bicycle racks and a lighted brick pedestrian corridor to Broadway. The corridor will be the new location of “The Heartland of Grove City” mural formerly on the corner of Grant Avenue and Broadway.

The parking lot north of the Grove City Community Club will close Monday, July 7 for approximately 90 days. Civic Place and First Street will remain open during the project with temporary closures. The alley between the parking lot and Broadway will become one-way south and parking will not be permitted.

Temporary closures will also occur as needed.

Construction updates will be sent via the "From the Grove" E-newsletter and on the City’s Facebook and Twitter pages. For additional information, call the Jackson Township office at 614-945-5045.
