A minor misunderstanding between the German Village Area Commission and the proposed Livingston Avenue Area Task Force is still being worked through.
At a Columbus City Council meeting last month, members of the task force — which is in the process of becoming an area commission — proposed a boundary that included property along Livingston Avenue up to Interstate 70, directly across from the German Village Area Commission.
Katharine Moore, executive director for the German Village Society, said the village’s commission and her non-profit opposed the boundaries because the German Village Area Commission planned to extend its own purview into the area once Columbus finalized plans for a cap in the area.
“With the way (the city officials) are talking about redoing the freeway and taking out the ramp so that there wouldn’t be a ramp at Fourth Street, that could all become developable property and we don’t want to see a pharmacy across from Katzinger’s (Delicatessen),” Moore said.
