Public Meeting on May 21 - Recreation and Parks Ten-year Master Plan…
Every ten years, Columbus Recreation and Parks creates their master plan, and this is the year. At the same time, the department also receives a significant boost to its budget, so this is a great opportunity to preserve what we have (15,000+ acres), maintain what we want to keep, and invest in what we want to be. From their announcement:
Share your vision for the future of Columbus Recreation and Parks at a public meeting on Wednesday, May 21, 2014, from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Martin Janis Senior Center, 600 East 11th Avenue (43211). This will be the last opportunity for the planning team to hear what you have to say about the future of your parks. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit parks.columbus.gov.
Bike Path on SR-161 Put On-hold
The proposed 10-ft. wide shared-use path, intended to provide safe and attractive connections for bicyclists and pedestrians living and traveling on State Rt. 161 between Linworth and Sawmill Roads, has been put on-hold until early 2014 pending the results of a traffic and safety study being funded by the City of Columbus, Perry Township, and the City of Worthington. This project was identified as one of the Bicentennial Bikeways Plan’s top 12 priorities. Learn more at the Department of Public Service project website (uh-oh, the ‘State Route 161 Shared Use Path’ link no longer works… [5/8/14]).
Godown Park Goes to the Dogs!
A cooperative effort between the City of Columbus and the City of Worthington created an outstanding dog park at the north end of Godown Road. Over 5.5 acres, and split into two sections for small and large dogs, the Dog Park at Godown received first place for the prestigious Ohio Parks and Recreation Association Partnership Awards. Check it out on Facebook. And when you come, please abide by the dog park rules – they help assure everyone’s safety.
