The Neighborhood Pride program is celebrating 13 years during the 2012 season, with a continued aim on bringing attention to various neighborhoods throughout Columbus. These neighborhoods will see year-long efforts focused on engaging residents, business owners and volunteers to beautify and strengthen these communities. That includes street sweeping, pothole repair, community events, bike rides and other programs.
“I want to thank all the neighborhoods who have asked to be part of this great program and the great residents and city employees who make it successful,” says Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman. “This is our bicentennial, and it is going to be a particularly great year for Neighborhood Pride.”
The following neighborhoods are the focus of the Neighborhood Pride program in 2012:
- Willis Park – Located on the far east side adjacent to Big Walnut Park.
- Cross Creek – Located on the far west side, just south of Hilliard.
- Sharon Heights – Located on the north side, between Beechwold and Worthington.
- Marion Franklin – Located on the southeast side, just north of Obetz.
