Thirty minutes from Downtown, in the southeastern corner of Union County, a village is taking shape.
Launched five years ago, when the housing market was in rubble, Jerome Village is starting to resemble the mega-development it will one day become.
More than 250 homes are occupied in the community and another 120 are under construction. That’s still a long way from the 2,200 homes expected when Jerome Village is finished, but the pace has picked up dramatically since central Ohio sales started rebounding in 2012.
