“Arcadia will be a place where both kids and adults can find something thrilling to do,” Ryan Stubenrauch, spokesman for Arcadia said. “You’ll be able to take the kids to a soccer tournament, catch a live concert, race around on all-electric go-carts, eat a gourmet dinner, and still have time to catch a movie with the whole family—all at one place: Arcadia.”
While Arcadia will be a massive project expected to bring millions of dollars of tax revenue to Berkshire Township, Sunbury and Delaware County, the development group is taking steps to ensure that community and neighbor feedback and involvement is part of the process.
“Arcadia will be fun for all as well as a good neighbor,” Stubenrauch said. “After meeting with some concerned members of the community and talking with elected officials, we realized that some of the things discussed early on by those who are no longer involved with our team were not what the community wants, and we’ve eliminated those aspects of the plan.”
Tony Sekulovski, the owner and developer behind Arcadia, explained the rationale behind some of those changes.
“Arcadia’s master plan does not contain any roller coaster, Ferris Wheel, or saltwater lake,” Sekulovski said. “Instead, the design focuses on a destination that can be exciting for visitors but still respectful of nearby homeowners.”
Arcadia is moving forward to gain final approval from the Ohio Department of Transportation and Berkshire Township so that construction can begin in the summer of 2019.
“Tomorrow (Dec. 14), we will submit our revised master plan to both the Ohio Department of Transportation and Berkshire Township,” Jeremy Botkin, Chief Administrative Officer for Arcadia said. “Also, a traffic study based on the new and improved design is already underway and expected to be finalized with ODOT early next year.”
