After years of planning, a riverside park is set to become a reality for the Harrison West neighborhood in Columbus, thanks to new financing.
The Columbus-Franklin County Finance Authority issued almost $3.1 million in bonds last month to buy and develop nearly five acres along the Olentangy River into much-needed green space for the city neighborhood.
I don’t have an account to read the whole article online, but it is great news for the neighborhood that this is coming closer to reality! Also see renderings at www.harrisonpark.com.
The info I have heard is demo will start in the next couple months to tear down the remaining buildings on the park site. I drove through there yesterday an almost all of the single family homes are sold, and the second “Flats” building they are putting up drywall.
