Dublin, Ohio Annexation Proposal Analysis
The City of Dublin, Ohio has a population of over 22,000 persons and is the location to over 28,000 jobs, from which it receives point of employment income taxes. TischlerBise's analysis evaluated high and low growth scenarios within the existing City and for four annexation areas.
The analysis concluded that growth within the City limits generates net revenues because of the amount of nonresidential development and associated income taxes.
It also concluded that all combinations of annexation areas generate average annual net deficits in the first ten years because of the large amount of residential development and the need to extend infrastructure. The analysis raised interesting policy questions such as the City's willingness to subsidize annexation in order to exercise its control over land uses.
