The City of Pickerington 2020 Pavement Maintenance project will begin this week. The work will begin with curb and gutter removal and replacement in the Pickerington Hills Subdivision starting this Wednesday, July 29. Markers to direct residents where not to park will be posted. Pavement repairs on Long Road will begin Thursday, July 30. Please drive with caution when in the vicinity of the construction workers.
In order to provide a safer condition for the traveling public, changes are coming to the intersection of Windmiller Drive and Diley Road.
The City of Pickerington will permanently prohibit left turns from Windmiller Drive onto northbound Diley Road, effective August 6, 2020. Northbound travelers on Diley Road will still be able to make a left turn onto Windmiller Drive from Diley Road. The construction work will occur at night.

As we age, we take steps to maintain and improve our health. The neighborhoods and structures in Pickerington also require maintenance to stay in good "health" as they age. Individual structures and neighborhoods that are not maintained deteriorate beyond a usable point and costs increase.
There is a simple solution to maintaining good neighborhoods: Individual Property Owner Responsibility. Unfortunately, many people are not responsible owners. That is why citizens band together to ask municipalities to create minimum standards for housing, yards, parking, etc. These standards are what protect surrounding property owners and tenants. Please review the following checklist and take the steps to be a responsible property owner.
The City responds to violations based on the policy of a "complaint-driven" system. We depend upon citizen input concerning the neighborhood in which they live. If you find that a neighbor has moved out and abandoned their home, or if they simply do not maintain the mowing and clean-up of their property, please contact Code Enforcement at 614-833-2204 and provide a proper address and a detailed description of the violation. While we attempt to ensure that community standards are followed, your help is necessary and appreciated.
Violations such as property maintenance and junk vehicle violations typically can take up to a month to step through the legal procedures before the owner gets a summons to appear in Mayor's court to correct the violation, and may take longer.
Property owners are responsible for clearing their sidewalks and keeping storm drains clear to help avoid standing water (Section 660.05 of the Pickerington Codified Ordinances). If you have questions or concerns, please call 614-833-2204.
With the exception of obvious safety hazards witnessed by the Code Enforcement Officer, it is the complaints of the citizens that guide the Code Enforcement Division in the enforcement of general (non-hazardous) violations.
Please provide your information on contact us page. We appreciate your patience. We do look into every complaint that is submitted.
