Developers now seek Dover Council approval to build 30-home Crimson Cove

| April 11, 2024

DOVER (WJER) (April 10, 2024) – The city’s planning commission has approved the 30-home Crimson Cove subdivision on the north side of the city. Next up is another public hearing and a City Council vote.
Residents downstream from the development along Goettge Run have expressed concerns about flooding.

Mayor Shane Gunnoe says the city hired an expert hydrologist to study the development’s potential impact on the creek.

“His recommendation and his modeling showed that there would be no impact to the community downstream,” Gunnoe said.

While Lawver Homes hopes to begin construction this year, Gunnoe says there are still a few steps before that can happen.

Those include a Council committee discussion, a final public hearing a month or so after that, and then City Council’s vote.

The Crimson Cove subdivision would be off Ohio Avenue just before the northeast border with Dover Township. Developers have said the single-family houses would be 1,600 to 1,900 square feet or larger on quarter-acre to half-acre lots, priced around $350,000 to $450,000.
