Richard “Ike” Stage – Grove City (OH) Mayor



Grove City Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage began the annual State of the City breakfast May 2, 2019 by reviewing achievements he described as “what we should know about Grove City.” In this episode, I talk to Ike about his achievements, the city’s achievements, and what he sees for the future of the city.

Some FAQ’s.

The city is the largest suburb entirely within Franklin County with more than 42,000 residents and a projected population of 54,000 by 2050, he said.

It has nearly 16,000 living units, a number that is expected to jump to 22,000 by 2050.

The biennial community-attitudes survey conducted earlier this year showed that 93 percent of those questioned have a positive attitude about living in Grove City. That was an increase from 81 percent in 2011.Ninety-one percent of those surveyed said they believe the city is moving in the right direction, an increase of 7 percent since 2011.

The two hospitals (Mount Carmel and OhioHealth) opening over the past year have led many to call Grove City “a healthcare hot-bed.” That is demonstrated not only by the hospitals, but the medical offices that have sprung up since the hospital projects were announced.
