After Penn National announced, in 2012, that Beulah Park's racing operations would be relocated to northeast Ohio, Grove City Administration began to look at possible redevelopment opportunities for the 212-acre site located adjacent to Grove City Town Center. With an objective of ensuring appropriate and beneficial redevelopment on the site, five principles were drafted to guide the development framework.
The Administration is continuing efforts to draft a comprehensive development framework, including an elaboration on the guiding principles, market summary, significant findings, recommendations and illustration of conceptual redevelopment scenarios reflecting the guiding principles.
Development on the site should highlight the historic significance of Beulah Park
Beulah Park should continue to serve as a community gathering place
Connectivity options to walk and bike to adjacent neighborhoods, should be included
Quality in all design elements is important, conscious consideration of designs that will complement the character of adjacent uses is vital
Development should provide the City of Grove City with a net fiscal benefit
