Doing Spring Home Improvements??? Check with the City of Westerville about permits.

Spring has arrived and with it a list of home improvements for many residents. Homeowners wishing to convert electric furnaces, hot water tanks, kitchen ranges, or other electric appliances to propane fueled appliances should remember to first obtain a permit from the City of Westerville before proceeding with the proposed work.  Whether using natural gas (NG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) such as propane, it is critically important to ensure the new gas piping systems and appliances are installed correctly and safely.


The permit process ensures compliance with the Ohio Fire Code and the Residential Code of Ohio.  In addition to regulating the new gas piping and appliances, these codes regulate the location and placement of the exterior storage tanks. Depending upon the size of the storage tanks, there are various setback requirements from your dwelling unit and the adjacent neighboring properties that must be adhered to.  In summary the permit and inspection process is a mechanism to ensure your new gas piping systems and appliances are installed correctly, ensuring the safety of your family.

Please see this link for additional information about what type of work requires a building permit.  For questions or to apply for a permit, please contact the Westerville Building Division at (614) 901-6650 or  You can also visit us in person at 64 East Walnut Street.

Pool Closed Today Due To Weather

Harvey’s arrival to central Ohio is spoiling the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Due to the cold weather, the pool is closed today (Friday), and may be closed Saturday.  Fortunately, Harvey won’t be staying long, and Sunday and Monday are looking nice to close out the 2017 pool season!

We are Annehurst!

The Annehurst Village Residents Association is saddened to hear that our neighborhood has been the target of hate crime. We do not support any individual or organization that seeks to intimidate anyone due to race, class, age, ability, sexual identity, or religious belief. We recognize that any action like this is a threat to the well-being our community and is unwelcome, fully rejected, and has no place in Annehurst.

Everyone has the right to feel safe in their own home and community. Our slogan is “We are Annehurst!” because we are more than a collection of homes; we are a community. We know our neighborhood is filled with good, caring people. We encourage our residents to look out for one another and make sure everyone is safe and welcome in our community.
