BMV signs letter of Intent for Weston District

on Tuesday, 10 December 2013.

Conversion will boost local economic development efforts

The BMV has signed a letter of intent to rent space for a new, privately-operated Deputy Registrar (DR), which will be located in the West Broad Plaza, 4135-4143 W. Broad St., at the southwest corner of W. Broad Street and Georgesville Road. The new DR will be in the heart of Columbus’ west side retail district and is scheduled to be opened for business by July 1, 2014. The West Broad St. location is the last state-run BMV customer service center.

“This conversion will boost local economic development efforts and reduce costs for the BMV and taxpayers by an estimated $1 million a year,” said Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Registrar Mike Rankin. “The new location will create jobs and invest in the west side neighborhood’s ongoing economic development success.”

Unlike the current site, the new location will be open on Saturdays and parking will be more convenient for customers.

All of the employees currently working at the West Broad St. customer service center will be assimilated into positions within the Ohio Department of Public Safety.
