City approves sale of Pump House with restrictions


Follow The Republic:


Columbus' historic Pump House is on the market, but potential buyers will have to accept zoning restrictions limiting its future use.

The Columbus City Council Tuesday approved selling the structure with restricted zoning, with Ryan Brand casting the sole opposing vote.

Prior to voting, however, councilmen discussed the logic of requiring a buyer to only place a restaurant, museum, liquor store or spa at the site, but not an office building, call center or bed-and-breakfast inn.

A new owner will face additional requirements in that the city also will place historical preservation and pedestrian easements on the property, Mayor Kristen Brown said.
