Recognizing the tremendous public and private investment in the area, the GroveCity2050 Community Plan identified land south of Orders Road and west of Hoover Road for future employment and job opportunities. This area has been termed the Southwest Regional Medical and Innovation Gateway based on the area’s proximity to the Mount Carmel Grove City Hospital and area medical offices as well as a growing demand for technology-based, flexible spaces and other employment opportunities including office, institutional, research and development and light industrial.

The vision for the Southwest Regional Medical and Innovation Gateway was shared at the December 20, 2021 City Council meeting during discussion of C-70-21 and C-71-21 with the video. Plans for the area also include infrastructure improvements such as a new I-71 overpass to unlock development opportunities and provide a new community connection to reduce the burden on the existing roadway network.
