July/August Community Events

This summer, the people of northwest Columbus have an opportunity to attend a special series of Neighborhood Pride events. Neighborhood Pride mobilizes “businesses, community residents and City Services to create a more cohesive and vibrant neighborhood” and provides “tools to empower neighborhood residents to be civically engaged with their community and the City.”

Mark your calendars for the following dates:

  • July 18 – Neighborhood Safety Academy (6-8:00 pm)
  • July 25 – Healthy Habits Wellness Expo (6-8:00 pm)
  • August 1 – Transit Thursday and Mayor’s Community Cookout (5:30-7:30 pm)

In addition to Neighborhood Pride events, NWCA is sponsoring National Night Out (NNO) for the first time. NNO is an annual event that focuses on crime prevention and developing good community-police relations and neighborhood camaraderie. This is a FREE family-friendly event that will take place on the grounds of Atonement Lutheran Church, 1621 Francisco Rd. from 5:30 to 8:30 on Tuesday, August 6th.

Habitat for Humanity store to replace Graeters

NWCA June meeting:  1128 West Henderson Rd is currently a retail store proposing conversion to a restaurant with drive-through service. This use is already permitted under current zoning. They are asking for a reduction in the parking space (from 138 to 128) and loading space requirements (from 1 to 0). The request was tabled pending additional information.

2906 Hayden Rd also wants to convert retail space to an eating and drinking establishment with a patio and a reduction of required parking spaces to 0. The NWCA Board voted to recommend approval.

The Refectory, 1092 Bethel Rd., wants to enclose existing outdoor dining space to allow for year-round use. They are asking for a parking space variance to reduce required spaces by 3 and to eliminate the additional 18 spaces required to 0. NWCA voted to recommend approval.
