EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER… Unfortunately Santa is NOT coming to Annehurst


We are very sorry to announce that the event has been cancelled due to a very wet weekend forecast. Santa can’t reschedule because he is heading back to the North Pole on Friday ahead of the storm and won’t be back until Christmas Eve.

Be sure to stop by and see Mr. Christmas’ 2018 light display at 649 Old Coach. It features a fun photo opportunity setup and as always he collects food donations for WARM.


Mark your calendars for the annual visit from Santa held in conjunction with the official lighting of the “Dazzling Christmas Lights” at the home of “Mr Christmas”. This annual event is sponsored by the Annehurst Village Residents Association and features crafts for the kids, hot chocolate, cookies from Schneider’s Bakery, and popcorn provided by Roush Hardware. The Westerville Fire Department usually makes an appearance and sometimes gives Santa a lift to the event because there is better parking for reindeer at the fire station.

A photo backdrop will be setup for you to take photos with Santa. Your donation of canned food for WARM would be appreciated in exchange your opportunity to take a photo with Santa.

  • 649 Old Coach Road

We are need of volunteers to help supervise the kid’s crafts, make popcorn, and serve the hot Chocolate. If you can help make this year’s event a success, text Karen Spiller at 614-570-2964 or email


Santa will be picking up letters from his personal mailbox from the event

A special thanks to Santa, Mr.  and Mrs. Christmas, The Westerville Police and Fire Department, Roush Hardware, Warm and Girl Scout Troop 2388!

NOTE: Old Coach Road will be closed from 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. between Storington and Berkeley Pl. S. for the Dazzling Christmas Lights event on Saturday, December 1st, 2018.

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.
