As bike path lengthens, village, Columbus agree on rules [This Week News]

Marble Cliff Village Council has approved a proposed memorandum of understanding between the village and the city of Columbus Recreation and Parks Department that would establish guidelines for the operation of the portion of the Scioto Trail Bikeway located in the village.
Columbus plans to construct an extension of the bikeway this year from the Riversedge complex at 1335 Dublin Road to Fifth Avenue and from the Dublin Road water plant to Grandview Avenue.
Village Council approved a draft of the memorandum at its May 21 meeting. Columbus has not yet approved the document.
"Columbus has assured us that the project will not be a maintenance burden for Marble Cliff," said village Engineer Louis McFarland.
The proposed memorandum of understanding states the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department must maintain and administer the portion of the bikeway located in the village.
Columbus would be responsible for the day-to-day operations and maintenance of the trail and for all major maintenance and construction along the bikeway.
The village, through its service contract with the city of Grandview Heights, would have law enforcement jurisdiction along the Marble Cliff section of the bike trail and would enforce village ordinances and Ohio Revised Code.
